Autumn has arrived! 

It finally feels like fall outside! I stepped outside expecting the same muggy, southern heat we’ve had for-freaking-ever, and lo! It was under 65, breezy, and sweater worthy.  

After naptime I bundled up the baby, stuck the toddler in long sleeves and we headed outside for fun.

Little Bear takes selfies very seriously.

We played with chalk and swept the driveway, since Little Bear loves to use the brooms.  

He decided this broom was better for Mommy, since its heavy, so he just colored it with chalk for me instead.

Pip tried out the new hat I knit for him.  I think I’ll have to quickly make another one, since it’s just the right size, and he’s growing like a weed!  No complaints there, though- I’m primarily a crocheter, not a knitter, and my skills need work. This hat is a simple enough project for my weak knitting skills to handle during long nursing sessions! 

Thoughtful baby is not sure what to think about cool weather.

We were outside for two. hours.  

Guys. The baby isn’t even a month old. I’ve never even been able to successfully keep the toddler outside for that long before on his own, let alone with having to take care of another tiny human. And we also put away chalk, brooms, and toys then went inside with no tears! Another success! 

I hope y’all are enjoying autumn! What are some of your favorite ways to enjoy the season?
