Um, so it's almost November and we can still BBQ in the front lawn and eat dinner outside. Am I ever going to get used to this southern weather? G's been making tons of homemade BBQ sauce lately and it's so good!

It's been a while since I've written one of these little letters to you. You're growing up so quickly (too quickly) and lately I look at you and I see a little boy instead of a little baby. You don't know what I mean and you'll hate it when you're older but every day I tell you, "No matter how big you get, you'll always be my baby".

We're entering some pretty awesome Henry years. Not that the baby times weren't fun and lovely but really, those days were all about snuggling and trying to make it through an entire day without losing it because you only got like 3 hours of sleep the night before.
Now? Now we go outside and he's holding his hand to his forehead, nodding his head back and forth in a "searching" motion, and yelling, "Brummm-Brummm!" (only we know that means, PUMPKIN!). I feel like we're entering the most fun baby times yet. At this age they just get so much more, it's so exciting. You're next Santa! HO HO HO.
this is his "spooky face". seriously, this kid kills me.
And in case you were all wondering how fast time goes by.....
This was Henry last Halloween. Dang.

It's been really feeling like Fall. Off and on we get this short burst of cold weather and it makes me happy. There's just something about this season that makes me feel good.
Today we're going to the library for this little story time that Henry likes to go to (sometimes). He usually gets really excited about it before we go and then once we're there it's like he realizes what it is and he's like, "Oh crap. I have to be in the same room for 20 minutes? OMGNOOOOOOOOOOO!" On the way to the library I ask him what kind of book he's going to get and he says, "And Bert and Ernie, MoMo, Bubird, NomNomNom, Brober, Abbbbbbey...." over and over and over and over and over. Lucky for me his memory span must not be very long because he never gets upset if we leave without a Sesame Street book.

reading hop on pop 10x a day. shoot me.
first acorn squash of the fall, baked with brown sugar and maple syrup
so. many. meltdowns.
windy, rainy pirate fest
tons of porch time
We've been busy doing not very much at all. Before having a baby, I didn't even know that was possible. But it is. Like, we have this routine that we have to stick to and it strictly consists of coloring, reading, lunch at noon to be paired with Sesame Street always, going to the park, playing on the front porch, coloring, reading, playdough, coloring, omgblahhhh you get it right? Somedays we'll mix it up and walk to the bakery three blocks down for a 38 cent cookie. Wahoo! I'm not complaining, I love staying home with Henry and it's helping me do really well in grad school. It's just weird how the days still fly by even though we're not really doing anything.
I've been MIA this week because I have so many big projects due. I actually spent three hours a day for the last week creating a week long lesson plan only to find out that I did it completely wrong. Awesome! Oh and then there's this email I got from my partner for a presentation due this monday. We haven't started it.
"Allie I am leaving to Colombia Tonight at 8.30pm I receive an Emigration letter telling me that they did not aprove my change of status on my visa from here. It is a process that I have to do in Colombia. Therefore I had to ask the profesors to do the Incomplete in my classes and next semester when I conme back I will take those classes again. However I will be taking the Curriculum class online. I am sorry girl about all those things, I was gonna let you know soon but thanks for contact me. I hope you are doing ok. I am sure you will do excelent, this situation is something that I could not control.
PS other big new I just Got Married today at 10;30am. I just wanted to share with you a little bit of my life.
Have a great week."

Sunday we made avocado, tomato, and spinach sandwiches on homemade bread (holla new breadmaker!) and met our friend Caila at the annual Picnic in the Park. Every year there's a theme and people get all dressed up. You can walk around the park and look at everyone's themed picnic dinners and watch old people get wasted before 8pm. Always a good time! Oh, and they have live music and stuff which Henry was totally into.
And then the fun stopped when the sick happened later that night. Poor baby!
We're moving up the list, all thanks to you! Could you please take a moment to vote today? Thanks!
