Hello October!

I love fall so much.  I really do.  There's just something about it.  Maybe the crisp mornings, the warmer clothes, the upcoming holidays or maybe it's just the extra snuggles that go around.  The mornings lately have been getting more and more crisp, closer to feeling like fall.  I've been looking forward to the cooler weather ahead and being able to spend more time outside.  I just can't help but reminisce around this time of year... 
Remember this picture?  I just can't decide if this feels more like yesterday or like it was forever ago.  Brings back so many memories.  I was so excited to go and get our pumpkin family.  The entire time we were there, we talked about how much fun it will be with the baby the next year and kids in the future.  Even though I am so excited for the upcoming festivities and holidays, sometimes I get sad thinking about this time last year.  It was such a great time for us, pregnant with our first baby.  There was so much we had to look forward to, which we still do, but when you're pregnant it's just a different kind of anticipation I guess.  Sometimes I miss it a little.  Anyone else feel this way or is it just me?  Anyway, this was just something that was on my mind today as I was washing his Halloween clothes that I bought last year.  We can't wait to take Little Loyal to the pumpkin patch this year!  I know he is going to love it.  He has become so curious and inquisitive about everything.  He's going to love all of the colors and I'm sure he will try to take a bite out of every pumpkin!
 We were in need of some new bedtime books so we did a little shopping yesterday.  We still need a few more but we definitely found some good ones.  If You Give a Mouse a Cookie was one of my favorites growing up.  I had no idea there was a pumpkin version!  Goodnight Goon was a good find, which, by the way, is very boyish.  Lots of monsters and goblins and other scary things.  Not really my cup of tea but I do have a boy.
