September has been a great month. It’s the beginning of Fall! The weather is already cooler around here. Chase was home all month so we had lots of fun family moments together:
Chase chasing Suzy and J around the ottoman in the living room. J squealing and laughing so hard while Suzy barked her head off and ran in circles. Perfect entertainment for an evening after dinner!
Paintfest 2012. Spent two weekends painting our bathroom and bedroom. The ceiling in the bedroom was killer, but we got it done! We have been wanting to paint those areas for years! It’s done!! It was like the big major looming project on the to do list that was never done. So glad we could “check it off.”
J having to learn to navigate the living room with all the bedroom furniture in it. It took a little while for J to learn where everything was and the best way to walk around everything. The next day we moved it all back into the bedroom, and he seemed to be following the same path for a few minutes until it dawned on him that there was more room to play! So funny. We definitely are creatures of habit.
MOPS started this month. I am in charge of group discussions for each meeting. Sometimes I think I take it too seriously, but I really do have a lot of fun with it. J loves his class he goes to. He gets to watch Veggie Tales and color and hang out with other kids his age! I am really glad I got involved in MOPS this year.
J is working on his two last teeth! Once these two upper canines come in we should get a reprieve from teething at least until his two-year molars start coming in. Come on sleep!!
Last Friday night we went to the county fair. We mostly went so J could see the animals. He loves cows. He got to see cows, chickens, ducks, a turkey, goats, rabbits, and pigs. There was this one pig who was super hungry. Her owner came up to feed her, and she went crazy taking her snout and lifting her cage up. J was enthralled. He also loved seeing the cows and hearing them moo. We didn’t go on any rides or play any games, but we didn’t need to! There were some tractors sitting out that kids were sitting on and my little J had so much fun pretending to drive the tractor. Someone also gave him a balloon, and even though I secured it to make sure it didn’t float away, he had a death grip on the string the whole night. We had a lot of fun!
