The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I really like fall. I don't think I've appreciated fall so much until this year. There is nothing like the first few cool days and cooler nights after a long hot summer. This really is a great time to have a new baby. I'm a baby carrier addict and love babywearing and the weather lately has been wonderful for snuggling a new baby next to you. The kids love to be outside and we've been enjoying the parks and our porch.

We've already had so many friends stop by and drop off food for us. It is really nice and very much appreciated. Our friend Jenny who is always thoughtful went to the farmer's market this weekend and picked up several items which we've been enjoying all week. The cantaloupe being one of our favorites and we might have her pick out all our melons from now on. It was probably the best one we've had in a long time. We enjoyed it with vegan French Toast (made with bread from our other thoughtful friends who were so smart to bring our favorite bread and sandwich fixings, nuts, homemade salsa, etc.) and Dema ate quite a bit in big handfuls. Our neighbors brought over this yummy bean casserole dish with different refried beans, whole beans, onions, tomatoes, avocados, etc. with chips (nice treat).

Here is Josie in her Svan bouncy seat. I've never been a big bouncy seat person, but I sell these so I wanted to try them out and they are very nice. It is handy on the rare occasions when someone is not begging to hold her like while we are all eating dinner. She is showing more and more personality, she cues quite well so ECing (elimination communication) is going nicely, she's been to her first meeting with me and nursed/slept through it, had her first pediatrician visit (he checked her heart and she's perfect), had her first visit to the local health food store, she doesn't like the car seat unless her brothers are back there with her, and so far she loves to be carried. I still think her eyes look more brown than blue, but we'll see. That is it for the Josie update.
