It's here! Fall is finally here!

Today is the second day of October and it is very chilly outside - My favorite time of the year! I love when the leaves change and fall (especially when I don't have to rake them up!!). The sun seems to shine brighter, like it doesn't have to work so hard making everything scorching hot so it can focus more on light - strange, I know, lol. It is a welcome reminder of things to come. Jason and I are excited to go home next weekend to my family's annual pig roast - it is always so much fun! Then trick or treating. David is going to be, by far, the cutest Lion anyone will see on Halloween!
I love this particular change in season for the change in cooking that comes with it! I made Chicken Pot Pie from scratch last night and Jason and I were blown away with how yummy it was - we had forgotten, lol. Every day, as it gets colder and colder, Jason and I get more and more excited for our favorite holidays - Thanksgiving and Christmas. Oh man... we have been fighting the urge to watch our favorite Christmas movies and listen to Christmas songs for weeks! We love the time with family, the yummy food, driving around to look at Christmas lights, putting up our own decorations, and (probably our favorite) cutting down our Christmas tree! We also have a tradition of buying a new, special ornament for our tree. We already bought David's first Christmas ornament, but now we need to find our family ornament. I am so looking forward to the next couple months!

In the mean time, we've been doing great! Jason is doing well at his job and has decided to get his CMT (Certified Medical Technician) license in January. Basically, he'll be allowed to pass out medication and get a big raise - we always like more money, lol. David is growing ridiculously fast and talking up a storm. He finally said "Dada" last night after months of only saying "Mama". I was so excited, but felt bad for Jason - he wasn't home to hear it. I'm sure he'll get to hear it soon, though. The next big milestone? Crawling! I am very anxious for it to happen, but, at the same time, it is a sad reminder that my little boy won't be my baby for long. I beginning to think he'll probably walk before he learns to crawl, lol. He doesn't really like to be on the floor. He's such a social person that he feels left out if he's on the floor. I'm not worried at all. Every baby develops at their own rate and I think that following a time line or comparing to other babies that are around the same age is stupid. And, quite frankly, one of my biggest pet peeves!

All in all, Jason, David ans I are doing great! Enjoying life and excited about things to come
