september {countdown to baby brother}

We are trying to enjoy the last of this very, very hot summer. 
Seriously, today was day 51 of 100+ degree weather in Kansas. It has been the hottest summer in Kansas on record. Please tell me that cooler weather is on the way??!!
Levi doesn’t seem to mind the heat. In fact he would still be outside all of the time if he could.
But his mama doesn’t look as cute swimming in a pool and drinking water out of the hose, so I prefer to stay in the air conditioning. 🙂
Levi and I made a little countdown to baby brother’s arrival today. 
He is scheduled to arrive the 24th…although I wouldn’t mind if he decides he wants to come a little sooner. A girl can dream.
We can’t believe it is September already!! Although it has been a long, hot summer, it is hard to believe that in less than four weeks we will be bringing home another sweet baby boy.
We are getting very excited. The babies room is not ready AT ALL, but that’s okay…at least that is what I am telling myself. Hopefully we will make some big progress on that over the weekend. He won’t know if his room isn’t ready anyway, right? Can’t wait to meet our sweet little guy.
Yay for September!!
  • Katie - Oh my, that last photo is too, too cute! Here’s hoping you deliver early. Did Cora and Eli arrive early?ReplyCancel

  • Holli Taylor - Yay is right! Can’t wait to have these babies, be off of bedrest and actually enjoy my little one again!ReplyCancel

  • This Farm Family's Life - Awww! Love this post! So many cute pix of Levi. I can’t believe it is September either! It is hot in Indiana also. We have only had 30+ days of 90 degree weather though. Stay cool!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah - Such great pictures of the little man!
    And your calendar is stinking perfection, my lines would have been wonky and my ‘September’ definitely wouldn’t be as beautifully written. …anyway.
    Didn’t the time just fly by? Is it hard to believe that towards the end of the month you’ll have another little baby in your life?! I’ve got roughly 2 months or so until our little one’s estimated due date, and I can’t even fathom it at this point.
    Try and stay cool!! Texas is a stinking broiler too, so I know how you’re feeling!ReplyCancel

  • Disney Freak - Great pics! He gets cuter and cuter every day!!

    I’m hoping my little guy decides to arrive early as well…He’s due the 29th but man, I’m ready to evict him now!

    Good luck!!!ReplyCancel

  • Selena - Oh, how sweet… I am so very excited for you! Bringing home a baby brother is so much fun!! I live in Columbia, MO and we are supposed to have weather in the 70’s next week; I’m hoping they will be coming to me from you, and then we will all be cool!! 🙂

    Take care and enjoy the coming weekend… love those Big Brother Levi pictures. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Jess - awk, no worries on the room. the sweet little guy is going to occupy that basket bassinette next to your bed that levi did for a few months, right? plenty of time! praying for a good delivery or a short memory of said delivery. 🙂 blessings to you and yoursReplyCancel

  • Amanda - Yes – YAY for September – our minds were thinking alike today!!! LOVE the calendar – makes me want a big chalkboard. Hmmmm, where could I put one?ReplyCancel

  • Kathryn Johns - That is awesome. It will be soon! My son’s birthday is September 24th 🙂 He’ll be 1.. that sounds like a PERFECT day to welcome baby brother!!!ReplyCancel

  • Toni :O) - I love, love, LOVE these pictures of sweet Levi…he absolutely makes my day and makes me smile! Best wishes for a smooth and quick delivery of baby boy #2!!! We all can’t wait to meet him via your blog! Hope the weather breaks for you soon, it’s been roasting up here in Michigan for much of the summer as well. Glad in a way to see Fall coming.ReplyCancel

  • Amanda - Amazing pictures, as always!! Looking forward to reading that your new little guy is here!ReplyCancel

  • Andy and Jenni - That second photo down, in the pool? CUTEST face ever.
    All the best to you and yours as you welcome baby brother.ReplyCancel

  • Tracy - I must say, that chalkboard wall is absolutely brillant, I cannot wait til I get a house I can do that to!! 🙂 (and your handwriting is darling!)ReplyCancel

  • rentz - I know you don’t want to wait until the 24th, but it really is a great day…it’s my birthday! Super cute pics.ReplyCancel

  • meg duerksen - oh he is so stinkin’ cute!!!ReplyCancel

  • L ~ S - I know 6 wonderful people born on the 24th, so it is a special day to me! I LOVE your chalkboard! Is it paint or an actual board?ReplyCancel

  • DianeTaylor - Hi Jess – omg these pics of Levi are just adorable, especially the last one 🙂 It seems all pics of Levi are cute – must be the subject? And the great photography skills of his mama! I hope for an early delivery so you can meet your sweet baby boy in person. How do you think Levi will handle it? I only had one boy so I am clueless about acclamating to a new baby in the house.ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - I think an old fashioned bunk bed ladder painted a distressed white would look cool on your empty spot on the wall, with your quilts hung over the steps of the ladder. You can even attached it so the kiddos can’t pull it down. I bet those white chairs are off limits to little Levi…I saw many posts about your lovely white chairs, and how you keep dirty little hands off of them!! Good luck with the new babe!ReplyCancel

  • onlymehere - Levi just keeps getting cuter and cuter!ReplyCancel

  • Bethany - I know you’re probably strapped for time, but would you care to share some tutorials on your photography? You are the bestest photographer – better than those that call them professional! I would love to have some of your tips! Keep up the great work!ReplyCancel

  • Kristin Stegent - Levi is so cute! And I cannot wait for you to have your new baby! 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Susan - Oh my, your son could not be any cuter.

    These pictures are beautiful!

    I also had a September baby, I know how it feels to be huge and hot.

    Oh another note, I have a prayer request. My husband’s boss, has a 5 month old granddaughter that was just told she has neuroblastoma. They were able to remove one tumor, but the other is inoperable.

    They are placing her port in today.

    (I wish I knew her name.)

    Thanks so very much!!ReplyCancel
