We took note of a certain "first" today. It may or may not have any impact on our immediate future...but after a week or two of Daniel being out of the crib at night (and sharing the full-size bottom bunk with Tyler) this morning was the first time he discovered he can now get into bed with mama and daddy.
'Round about 6:something this morning he sleepily stumbled into our room. Probably awake because he was cold - we had the windows open for the crisp fall-ness and when I pulled Daniel into bed with us his little feet were freeezing! He let me snuggle him up like a great big teddy bear and we all dozed together while the sky grew light.Before too long Levi woke up and joined us. Sweet times!
Today was the last day of a several-day visit from my mom. She was in town for a few family portrait sessions. We took advantage of her working-visit to sneak in a new group shot of our ever-growing herd. It was the first picture (ever!) of all 8 of us together. :)
I snapped this one on our way to our photo-spot. Can you spy all 6 kids? I'll give you one hint...Greg's carrying Levi. ;)
After lunch we said good-bye to Mimi and carried on with Saturday-ish things like mowing the grass and laying out Sunday clothes. Which, for this particular Sunday involved a trip to storage to find fall things from our hand-me-down stash for a few of the kiddos.
I'm afraid Levi isn't going to grow fast enough to fit into his little pumpkin hat this fall.
But he says the eye-shading allows for wonderful napping.
Happy First Saturday of October to all!
