A Few Pics




From last weekend. More later.

We ARE coming up this weekend!! 🙂

Today



Today there was rain on and off all day and everything was gray. Matt was gone at work from 8:30 – 6:30. Autumn wanted to do nothing but sleep. All of these factors–especially the weather–made me feel just incredibly lazy. So I spent most of the day working on Autumn’s baby book and neglecting all the things I really should have been doing. Oh well, I guess I needed to work on her book too.

We’re still not sure if we’re going to be able to make it up to DC next weekend. Everything is going to depend on Matt’s work. If we do make it up, it’s looking like we’ll be driving, since it’s getting so late to get flights. So if we do make it, it’s going to have to be a really quick visit. 😦

I’d better go give Autumn her last feeding and get her to bed. On a happier note, here are some more pictures of Autumn.

Interesting post…

…that we’re no longer living in an apartment. Autumn is going through a phase which is not fun. She’ll be on the floor, or in her exersaucer, or in the highchair, peacefully playing with some toys…until I walk out of the room. As soon as I walk into the next room she starts screaming. If I walk back in, she’ll go back to playing with her toys. Thankfully, most of the time I can just let her yell (in the hopes that she’ll figure out she’s okay without me in the room). I’m just glad that we’re in a house and have the option of letting her yell, knowing it’s not going to bother anyone other than me.

A Very Happy Baby

Autumn having a good conversation with her dad. Turns out even a four-month-old thinks he’s pretty funny.

A Little Bit of Spring





For all the people still struggling through winter.

We’re having gorgeous weather here. We were outside this morning with Autumn doing some pre-gardening work, and I decided to snap a few pictures. There are daffodils everywhere–in fact we were digging up some of them this morning because they’re coming up all over the place, including the vegetable garden. And the honeysuckle and azaleas are just beginning to bloom. And last fall’s mums are coming back like mad in the pots on the steps. (I avoided the most abundant sign of spring in the yard and garden–dozens and dozens of dandelions.)

We’re all really enjoying the warm weather and sunshine. I got some more pictures of Autumn while we were out, but they’re going to have to wait a bit to go up, since I have to get some things done around the house (other than blogging) while she’s getting her nap.

A New Present



Today Autumn got two letters. One from Uncle Thaddeus and one from Aunt Miriam. Mommy read them to her and she got really excited. She thought they were fun to look at but she really wanted to eat them.
