So I am obsessed with all things pumpkin. It's not that I don't always love pumpkin things but since being pregnant with this baby, I CRAVE pumpkin everything. I seriously think about pumpkin all day and what new recipes I can try. I am currently hooked on pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cheesecake and baked acorn squash (which is not technically pumpkin but close enough). I am planning on getting up early tomorrow to get some pumpkin bagels and pumpkin cream cheese. I have pumpkin scented candles in my house that I stop to smell a few times a day. The smell is so comforting to me--makes me think of fall and cozy, snuggly family time. I may have to bring a few of these candles or pumpkin-scented things into the delivery room with me to ease me through labor! (Which by the way... happens next month! I can't wait to meet my new little boy!)
My very sweet friend Lori came to visit me and brought me a fancy pumpkin bread pan:

Isn't it the cutest thing ever?! I plan on making my first fancy pumpkin bread this weekend.

So Carter too, is in love with pumpkins. Not so much the actual food items but he wakes up every morning and can't wait to turn on the glowing pumpkins in our kitchen:

And for some reason, when Carter says the word "pumpkin" he says it very excited with an emphasis on the KIN! I have no idea where he learned this (maybe from my overexcited daily outbursts regarding all things pumpkin?) It is so stinkin cute though--check it out:
