Fall happenings from around our house:
Eden is busy feeding herself in her high chair and learning to walk. I think we've seen her take 4 or 5 little tiny steps at a time. She still plops down and crawls her funny one legged crawl for most of her on the floor transportation.
Another kitchen project is complete. PANTRY! Well, and I guess it's not actually complete. We still need to put the doors back on. But, hooray for a more functional pantry!
And, some pre-Halloween fun the small boys and I had last week. Functional Pantry can be seen in the distance. For our project, I ripped; they glued.
Today is very gusty and rainy outside. Then we will be surprised by a burst of sunlight between storms. Most of the leaves on our backyard maple will fall as a result. I like fall.

Looking a little sleepy here...
Eden has fuzzy, blondy, with a hint of auburn, hair. Elfy ears.
I couldn't wait for Fall for many reasons but one of them was this dress. Red corduroy with little dots, perfect for her first day of "school" at co-op.
Eden crawls, eats everything off the floor,
makes a bah bah bah sound imitating Daniel with her hand to her mouth,
waves her arms and shouts happily at anyone who shouts and waves their arms happily at her.
Eden loves her Kitty,
to feed herself bits of sweet potato or cooked apple pieces,
to be with her mommy,
but Mercy or Daniel or Michael will do in a pinch as long as Kitty is near.
Eden sleeps nicely in her crib for her morning nap, afternoon nap and at night for which we are all thankful. She is learning that screeching like a young pterydactyl doesn't get desired results. She is learning to sign "More" but seems to prefer saying "ma ma ma". She says "da da da" at Daniel and Daddy, both. She says, "Ah dah ah dah" when I sign "All Done" at the end of a meal. She is pulling up and climbing and getting so big. A few of the kids say they have seen her stand all by herself for a few seconds.
Still under a year old, when we remember back to last year at this time, I was still pregnant with this baby whom we didn't yet know. What a joy to know you, Eden, and to have you here with us!
