It's Finally Fall!

Well it finally feels like fall in Louisville! To celebrate we did one of our favorite things this past Saturday. We went to Huber's Farm in Indiana and went apple and pumpkin picking. We had a blast along with the Murray's and a couple of other families from our small group.

Apple Picking

We also went out to Bernheim forest last Sunday with the Murray's and enjoyed a picnic under the changing leaves.... Here are some pics from our outing.

Just wanted to show y'all some pics of the latest new change in Maddie's life. Because she is rolling over she had to get rid of the swaddle when she sleeps. So here are her new sleeping positions. Although she cries forever sometimes at night to get to sleep these are the precious positions we find her in!

Roll Baby Roll

For almost a month now Maddie has been almost rolling over. She will get all the way and get her arm stuck under her. This morning Michael was on the phone and all the way over she goes. Of course I was out at the gym and missed it all!

Recent Happenings...

We have been pretty busy the past couple of weeks. As soon as we got back from the Smokies, we went to the annual Hot Air balloon festival at Bowman field here in Louisville. It was really cool and a lot of fun to hang out with some good friends. Madeline slept through most of the balloons glowing at night, but we enjoyed seeing them light up.

The next weekend mom and Erica came into town. We went down to the St. James Art show on Saturday. Sunday and Monday were mainly spent shopping and being entertained by Madeline. It was such a fun time... Maddie loves her Marmie and Aunt E! I just wished we lived closer together.

This has been a big week for Madeline. She has stopped sleeping through the night so a friend suggested I try some rice cereal during dinner. So, this week Madeline was introduced to solid foods for the first time. Go figure she loves it! She opens her mouth extremely wide when she wants another bite and will grab your hand and force it toward her mouth if you don't do it fast enough. Note the second pic. Though it might be messy, she is extremely happy after she is full! She has been sleeping her regular 10 hours again, so mommy and daddy are thankful for that.
Aunt Missy... note the bib! We won't let her forget how much her aunt in Japan loves her:)
P.S. Check for a new photo journal link. I got the idea from Missy and am trying to get it up and running! You can see all of the pics from the past month (and eventually everything) if it works out.
