We are loving all the wonderful things October brings. Cool weather, fall leaves, apple cider, warm soup and pumpkins, just to name a few. We went for a Sunday walk yesterday. Madeline enjoyed her first encounter with crunchy, colorful leaves. She loved it.
We were enjoying fall treats, too, but after a very painful (for me... Jeremy and Madeline seemed to sleep quite soundly) night of food poisoning last week after eating pumpkin pancakes two nights in a row followed by pumpkin doughnuts the second night, I'm not sure if I want to partake in any more autumn sweets. HA. Not likely. I'll be making some pumpkin chocolate chip bread this week. mmm.....
I would write a long emotional essay about how Madeline will be one in less than a month, but I feel like I've done that already.... so I'll just let you know I'm thinking about it. I have some great birthday plans in the works though :)
