I started typing out "HELLO SEPTEMBER" until I realized it's October 8th and time is a really funny thing once you're a mom and you function with much smaller portion of your brain than before.
This is what our mornings at home look like. Mack usually wakes us up between 7-7:30 by yelling out "MAMAAAAA." I'm not a morning person but that always makes me laugh. I go into his room and he'll grab his dog and favorite blanket and then he wants to get into our bed and watch "Melmo" or "Choo" with some sort of breakfast. He'll sit there for at least 30 minutes (sometimes I'll get to go back to sleep) & it's totally the best. I love lazy mornings with him.
We've been trying to get out and do fun fall things more this year because...well, fall. We went to an apple festival last weekend and it was mostly us chasing Mack around trying to keep him from destroying every booth we walked past. And then we went to a pumpkin patch earlier this week and had pumpkin doughnuts and went on a hayride and fed animals and it was perfection. FALL. WHY ARE YOU THE BEST?
Also I want more of the pumpkin doughnuts.
Mack's latest acts of mischievousness include climbing to the top of a ladder by himself in less than 3 minutes, and eating a half of a pack of gum. The kid loves the gum. He gets it from me.
I'm almost 30 weeks pregnant and baby is still breech. It's actually incredibly uncomfortable. I can feel almost her every movement, which is sorta nice, because with Mack I often got worried he wasn't moving enough. But she's nestled in my right ribs and I think she thinks my ribs are some kind of soothing object. I hope she learns that my pelvis is much much better.
