September and Fabulous Weather!

Wow, am I IN LOVE with the weather we are having right now! Why can't northern Indiana have weather like this all the time? I would be in heaven!

Milo turned 4 on August 21 and we can't believe how quickly time has flown! Yesterday he was our 10 pound 4 ounce itty-bitty baby! Ha! He has a very active imagination and makes us laugh, along with wanting to pull our hair out at his stubbornness (which he totally gets from his dad!).

Lena is almost 11 months old and is trying to walk! She will randomly take 3 sturdy steps and then fall, but she's getting better about balance and will even let go of the couch to take one step and then fall. At least she's trying, we don't remember Milo being this determined.

Over Labor Day weekend we went grocery shopping (fun, I know), to the zoo, a cookout, peach and apple picking, and to a birthday party! What a busy time we had! We had a good time and that's all that matters!

These pictures are not in order and range anywhere from August 11 through today.

We went to a local splash pad and this is our bathing beauty! Boy, when she's done playing in the water (or hot tub), she lets you know! The average is about 20 minutes.

Lena's new face, which Jesse claims I make. whatever. He says I make it when I think he's said something that doesn't make sense. No, I give him the "duh" look when that happens. Geesh.

Milo in an apple tree! We're lucky we didn't get caught with him up in it, they have signs posted that say if they catch you, you get kicked out and charged double! We ended up with 4 lbs of very hard peaches and 20 lbs of gala apples! I've just finished my first batch of homemade apple butter and if there are enough apples left after a caramel apple pie, I'll be making more! I gave our neighbor and my brother's girlfriend a few pounds of apples each, so they are running out!

Lena debuting her "Pebbles" hair do! (leave me alone, mom, I'm eating!)

Milo rolling around the yard in one of Jesse's old tires.

Milo's first dental cleaning! He did GREAT! Next time we might even let him go back by himself!

I started making pumpkin hats! This is actually the second one I've made in a week! The first one was too small for Lena's head so it's going to be in a raffle for my Mother's & More group. I still have 4 more to make! AAAHHHH!!!!

I have this cool "lava" lamp that has no lava in it, it's the colored static instead. This is the first time I've pulled it out since Milo was a baby and he and Lena loved it!

My hillbilly boy. How red-necked does he look???

This was adorable! One night Milo was having ice cream and decided to lick the bowl. He puts down his bowl and says, "Mommy, do I have a mustache?" This is seriously what he looked like, I didn't do anything! I think he looks like a puppy!

I WILL be putting up my Halloween decorations sometime this week! YEAH!!! Milo has decided that he wants to be a firefighter, so Lena's going to be the dalmatian to go with him! Luckily Kohl's has tops and bottoms in that print, so I've already bought them, I may just add some ears onto the jacket hood.

Have a great week! Time for me to go bottle up the apple butter!!!!

  1. Love the pumpkin hat! I've been making hat, but it never cross my mind to add a stem and make them orange for the season :) Great idea!

    p.s. LOVE the pebbles look, Lena!
