The weather is starting to shift this week. Fewer and fewer leaves on the trees, increasing rain and cooler temps. I guess all good things must come to an end. Here are a few shots of some fall goodies around the yard and kids playing around outside.
We finally did some back-to-school shopping for Nina in October. She had a huge growth spurt this year and nothing fits! A clean out of her closet left her with almost no pants and very few tops. She’s been so patient as many plans to go clothes shopping have fallen through. Weston rules the roost right now, as Evan so keenly observed. If he’s not happy, we don’t go anywhere. I took a few pictures of her in one of her new outfits to celebrate finally getting this child some clothes!The leaves are gorgeous right now and the fall weather has been incredible. Hooray!
we took some photos outside.I had fun taking pictures of Nina in one of her new outfits. She’s so appreciative of everything she has enjoys putting outfits together.
Our little Weston is almost 2 months old in these photos. He’s brought a piece of heaven to our home and we can’t imagine life without him. I was tired, so very tired, the first two months but the fog is slowly lifting.This newborn phase flies by. I already had to adjust his car seat straps and buy larger diapers. And he’s started scooting! He lifts his head so tall and smiles. It it so fun to experience a baby again and watching the older kids dote on Weston makes my heart swell.
Weston is a fabulous sleeper during the day, but at night he sleeps VERY lightly. If I try to stealthily move away from him, he instantly wakes up. I think our set up is something I heard referred to recently in Fit Pregnancy as “breastsleeping.” Sometimes I just wait for daylight to come, his signal to finally sleep deeply. I know he’ll adjust. He’ll figure out his days and nights. It always happens, but until then I honestly treasure every single moment with him, day or night. He’s such a sweetie.
This was the second time I left the house. Zig and Rollin were checking out the course for an upcoming SUP race so the rest of us tagged along and hung out at the beach park while they went paddle boarding. Everyone is happier outside so of course Weston was a little dream at his second park outing.
We celebrated Zig’s 42nd Birthday this weekend. All the kids helped prepare a special dinner for him.
Sela set the table.
Sela made dessert and Nina prepped the salad.
Evan’s job, along with slicing zucchini, was entertaining Weston for a few minutes so we could get dinner on the table.
All five kids and Zig. Still feels funny to say we have 5 kids!
We love you, Zig!
