Life Lately 10.12.15

Monday, October 12, 2015

As I write this I'm listening to the soundtrack of no sleeping naptime- bumping around upstairs, books falling on the floor, talking, the door opening, pitter patter of feet to the bathroom multiple times and door closing.

This happens about once a week and the other days he sleeps soundly for over an hour.  Meanwhile Reid has been napping like a champ and we can finally feel a tooth popping up!

Here's a little bit more about our life lately.

Last week the temperatures plummeted and all of the sudden we needed jackets and even hats (and space heaters in the boy's rooms,)  Reid didn't even know what happened to wearing shorts and crocs!

After 5 days of rain, on Sunday when the rain stopped we hit the playground with my sister and Ian, It was much colder and super blustery and felt more like December than the first week of October.

On Tuesday we went to a farm show with some friends.  Of course the tractor was the biggest hit! (and the milkshake!)

On Thursday Carter and I went on his first field trip to Corn Cob Acres.  We rode the bus, took a hayride, picked pumpkins, and slid down so many fast slides among lots of other fall activities.  It was also the longest I've been away from Reid.  But he was a champ and had a great morning with my mom (and napped for 2 hours!)

Then on Saturday Carter and I went to Dutch Wonderland for the last time with our season passes.  It was such a fun morning, just the 2 of us.  We rode all the rides he wanted and bundled up since it was a little chilly.  Then we went to Chick Fil A for lunch.

Then after nap our family went to the pumpkin farm.  

That is definitely one of my favorite fall traditions.

And then there's this:
First birthday party planning is starting.  How is that even possible?  


  1. Liam is just starting to drop his nap. Lately I only get a nap from him if it's in the car. And those birthday invites.... Sooo cute!

  2. Today is day 2 of no nap :( oh no!!!

  3. Reid is turning 1?!! How in the world did that happen already? Seems like I was just visiting you in the hospital 2 months ago!! Slow down, buddy!


I love to read your thoughts! Thanks for your comment!
