She was so excited it was cool enough out this morning to wear her “punkin” shirt! 🎃
It’s been an eventful month, and it has ultimately ended with the knowledge that Baby Cookie 2.0 is definitely going to be born at 37 weeks or before due to pre-eclampsia (yes, in addition to the two vessel umbilical cord). We are now trying to wrap our heads around having a November baby instead of a December one. Since Dan doesn’t need to in-process at Tyndall until the end of December, we have also decided to stay in Texas to have the baby and THEN move instead of the other way around like we had planned. The Air Force has been AMAZING working with us to move his water survival dates up yet again so that he’s gone when I’m 35 weeks instead of 37 or 39 weeks like originally planned. We couldn’t be more appreciative of that! In the meantime, I have two ultrasounds each week and see the doctor once a week and the midwife once a week. It’s exhausting going to so many appointments, but it’s good to be able to check on baby and make sure she’s growing as she should and monitor my blood pressure (I also have to check it daily at home). Now we’re on the hunt for a few preemie sized outfits since Big Sister Annabelle was full term and just barely 6 pounds herself… we’re anticipating a teeny girl this time around! “Chill out rest”, as the doctor put me on, is tough, and I basically suck at it… but I’m trying my best to stay off my feet. PS – huge shout-out to my mom who came to visit a couple weeks ago and stocked our freezer with dinners so I don’t have to worry about cooking dinner! .

“Dr. Annabelle” may have come to too many appointments with me - she’s checking baby sister’s heartbeat and says, “thump thump thump thump” ❤️❤️❤️
Our tiny dinosaur lover is so excited about her new "thesaurus" shirt and says, "rawwwr!" Thanks for the fun shirt, @elliek526 and fam!
We went to the pumpkin patch yesterday! Annabelle had the best time picking her pumpkin out, going down slides, riding a pony for the first time, watching the duckies, and petting some baby animals! (Swipe to see more smiles and fun!)
Here's a picture of tiny Annabelle two years ago because my favorite month of the year is finally here! I LOVE October! The weather, the warm drinks, the football, the pumpkins, the costumes... so much fun! Even better with a sassy little two year old diva! This month will be hectic and chaotic, though, as we pack up our Texas home and live in a hotel for a couple weeks... but we won't miss out on all the fall fun because I won't allow it! We officially begin our journey to Florida in exactly one month - on November 1st - but we only have 19 more days in our own house! #thecooksmovetoflorida #iloveoctober #happyoctober #fall #autumn #airforcelife #pcstime #texastoflorida
After the dreary week we had in Texas, we had to soak up some sunny fun at the backyard water table today! If this sweet face and the world's tiniest ponytail don't make you smile, I don't know if anything ever will! 💜💜💜
Date night last night! We're going to miss Parents' Night Out when we move - we'll have to find something similar in Florida! .

Our little dinosaur is off to her first Parents' Night Out in the two year old room and second to last one here at Sheppard!
I don't post a lot about this little business venture of mine anymore since my feed is flooded with photos of my adorable girl, whose name (Annabelle Kathryn) I used for this shop of mine... but I waited all day yesterday to hit 1,000 sales in my Etsy shop, and of course the cha-ching came in overnight while my phone was on do not disturb mode, so I missed it! Anyway, I am so happy, grateful, and humbled to have made it this far with my hobby, and I'm glad I can contribute a little bit to our finances. Huge shoutout to all of my friends who have ordered from me or even just let me practice my skills for customized items for them along the way and to my husband for helping set up my domain and all that technical jazz! Oh, and if you're intrigued, follow along at @annakatepaperie ☺️👍🏼

Friday night pizza vibes 🍕 (She's been asking for "pit-za" all week and is so happy!)
Today marks the first day of the third trimester - yay! Baby Cookie 2.0 is measuring in the 65th percentile now, down about 20% from last time. The doctor reassured us that is okay and perfectly normal and that we won't worry unless she slips down much further due to the two vessel cord. I go back every two weeks for the next month and then have an ultrasound every single week from 32-40 weeks (or until delivery) to check her growth and make sure she's staying on track. I have my first appointment set up for the day after we arrive in Florida - I will be 35 weeks then and am anxious to meet my new doctor (shout out to Flight Med for taking great care of me and getting that referral quickly for a high-risk OB near our next base!) and get acquainted with the area we'll be bringing this baby into the world at. For now, I'm enjoying nearly weekly prenatal massages to de-stress, and I'll be sad when those are over with! .

Sweetest little "puppy doctor" (as she's calling herself) I ever did see ❤️😍🐶
I had a pretty cute coffee date this morning 😍☕️ I had an iced raspberry truffle latte, and she had a peach banana pouch 👍🏼
This popped up from two years ago... How was my girl ever this teeny tiny? So excited to see if baby sister looks just like her or not! 💖
Basic Babe's first ever PSL! j/k - I would never give this girl caffeine 😂 it was mine, and she loved playing with the empty cup afterward pretending it was her own coffee! ☕️
This girl kept shouting, "Look! Airplane!" and pointing up at them for the first time. Up until today, every airplane was a "rocket" to her (no idea why, haha). She was sporting her new Raptor shirt, but sadly, there were none at the air show to watch, but the Thunderbirds were still amazing as always! ✈️🇺🇸
