Fall Happenings

I’m going to stop trying to catch up and just start from where we are now.  Catching up is daunting and makes me blogging less appealing.  So, here we are in mid-November which I can’t believe!! 

Dylan is talking quite a bit now.  Some things that he says are juice, clock, bug, Pop Pop, woof, good girl (that’s what he calls dogs), nana (for banana)… that’s all I can think of at the moment.  He is such a handful!!!  I’m pretty sure he's normal in his mischievousness but he is in to everything! 


Luke I think is very level headed for a three year old.  He does sometimes get a little wound up and act out of character when we’re around other kids… Is that normal?  I find myself saying “Oh my goodness!  He doesn’t normally act like this!” when we’re around people we’re not with often or in a party setting.  He has a huge imagination and is always pretending to be an animal or a monster or a dinosaur.  He is pretty obsessed with dinosaurs and loves “The Land Before Time” right now, which was one of my favorite movies as a kid.  He melts my heart at least once a day because he can just be so sweet.  I love when he tells me he loves me out of the blue! 


This was on our annual family trip to Ocean City in October.  We had the best beach day I saw all summer!  It was definitely warm enough (except for the water of course), and almost empty.  My favorite beach is a quiet beach when you can focus on the sound of the waves. 

Halloween was a great time with my puppy and dinosaur.  We had a huge crew come to our house for dinner and then we all walked around and trick or treated.  My uncle hung back to hand out candy.

That’s it for now… I am resolving to be better about blogging!  Even though I hate sitting down and committing the time to it, I really do LOVE having these memories written down in my own words.  My memory is horrendous and I love the idea of being able to look back on this whenever I want.

And finally, go check out Holly, who just gave me a $10 Starbucks gift card for captioning a picture of her sweet daughter Olive Betty on her blog!  She and her guest blogging husband Chris are hysterical and relatable.
