Fall glory and sundry happenings

Autumn is winding down as the last of the leaves are beginning to fall. It has been a beautiful fall, with many warm, sunny days and glorious colors to enjoy from the kitchen sink window. I am glad to have so many windows in our home, since having a newborn means you just don’t get outside very much to enjoy the weather and yard. So I drink it in behind glass and once and awhile stick my head out the window with my camera in hand.

View from my kitchen sink:


Can you see the fort Scott built with the kids this summer?


Two visitors looking for crab apples in our yard.


Now she’s an interesting specimen:


We managed to get out one Saturday afternoon and spend some time at the park.  Another beautiful sunset closed the day out.

Eliza wasn't too interested in playing at the park :)

I can’t manage to get out and take Annika for a haircut so I just did her bangs.  I think she’s showing me something!


Finally, evenings are spent holding, jiggling, rocking and walking with Eliza, and sometimes reading the paper.


Eliza is a month old now.  We are adjusting to the new normal.  I feel bad for her because she has such painful gas.  Knowing that she should outgrow this stage makes it easier to deal with. She’s becoming more interested in her surroundings everyday and I can’t wait for her first real smile!
