Ah, fall. Arguably the best time of the year, by any common white girl’s standards. It’s definitely my favorite. Cool enough for boots and layers, but not so cold that the air hurts (seriously, winter in Michigan is rough. I live somewhere where the air physically hurts). But I digress. We had a killer summer, and it’s so crazy to look back at photos from late springtime. London was in her cranial helmet, and not mobile yet. Peyton had just turned four.
Our summer was filled with beach days and boat rides. Sand castles and ice cream runs. Fireworks and baby-chasing. Carnivals and mini-vacations. We finished the patio this summer, and completed the waterfall/koi pond. London is now not only crawling, but walking. AND OMG SHE TURNS ONE NEXT WEEK. We found out we are expecting baby girl #3 this summer, which has been one of my highlights. Peyton has grown up SO much, and is so much more self-confident and independent. It’s amazing to watch. And London’s little personality has become more and more apparent. She’s spunky and loves to test limits. She’ll never pass up a snuggle, and is so easy-going (as long as there’s food nearby).
And with that, I cannot wait to see what this fall has in store for our crew! We are planning a trip to the orchard tomorrow. I’ve also been forbidden to bring pumpkins onto the property until October 1 (shoutout to Dave), so a trip to the pumpkin patch is coming up, too! London was so tiny last fall, so I am excited to make new memories with her before #3 steals her baby-thunder!
