The leaves are starting to fill up the ground, my friends! Oh, the smell, the crunch. Take it all in before we are forced inside for the cold, cold winter!

Only 8 pictures to go! Have you enjoyed this as much as I have?

Anyway, I love this picture because most ones like it have random brilliant red or orange or yellow leaves, but this one is as green as can be! It took me by suprise. I just took it the other day, too, so it's not even from early in the season.
What has taken you by suprise this fall?

You run through them (especially when your friends are trying to put them all in a pile, that little stinker)...
you jump in them...
and then you throw them up in the air!!

Anyone else love these?

It has been said that you know you live in the Mid-Ohio Valley when you have to turn on your heater and air conditioner in the same day. For us, that applies mostly to when we're in the car. Is it like that where you live (if you live outside of the Mid-Ohio Valley)?

Have a great weekend, everyone =)

My good friend Leslie and I went walking the other morning with our crew (5 all together between the two of us). Walking down the bike trail in town with the leaves crunching under our feet, were were reminded of last year, where we were doing the very same thing, both of our bellies great with baby, and less two babies in our slings. To us, Fall meant nesting, and now means wandering babies.
Does Fall bring any specific memories for you?

Does anyone else have children who must stop what they are doing and look to the sky to find these flocks and they fly by? Hmm, that rhymed and I didn't even mean for it to =)

I cannot point the camera at Hudson now without him making this face...
I tried again...
Finally I had to distract him by looking around the side of the camera. Then I got this goofy grin. I guess it's better than "the face."
And just wait, my dear friends. The biggest, fullest tree I have ever seen is in the alley behind my house. It's the kind of tree that had me peeking out the back window every day or so during our first Fall here. It has thick poison ivy twisting and wrapping it's fingers all the way up and througout the tree. It's starting. In a few more weeks, it will be a glorious display of color that will be the picture of all pictures, here in 30 Days of Fall land.
Are you giddy with anticipation? You should be. It will be worth it.

Which colors of Fall do you like the best?

On a side note, you may notice that she is still rear facing and in a car seat with a 5-point harness. She can safely rear face in her car seat until she reaches 33lb. and can forward face in a 5-point harness until 80 lb (there are also height limits on those, but she is unlikely to reach the height before weight). Please check out the two videos linked above (especially if you have young children) to see why that is so important to her safety.
You will have to excuse the bad quality of this picture. I wanted to post it anyway because of the look on her face. Sheer joy!

If you have a midwife, make it a point to show her some love this week.

And I thought I would share Hudson's favorite face to make. It's his I-want-that-pick-me-up-I'm-excited face. He makes it for everything. Mouth open, arms and legs straight out and stiff as a board.

While I take this pause, I would like to ask something of you. If you take the time to check out my blog, I would like to know about you. Could you take a second to tell me who you are, where you live, and what you fill your day with? My inquiring mind wants to meet you. Thanks!
