Fall Leaf Fun!!

One day after work when the leaves started to fall, Daniel I walked across the alley to pick some up. This is where he first learned that leaves that have fallen off the tree make crunching noises when stepped on. He also liked to pick them up and look at them. So once more leaves started to fall we decided to take him to play in the leaves. At first he wasn't so sure. Then we threw some up and let them fall overtop of him. Then the leaves were fun. He loved throwing them in the air and letting them fall in his hair. I have to say Mommy didn't think this one through to much. We laid him down in the leaves to see what he would do and he giggled. He loved the leaves. By the time we were done he had leaves all over him, in his diaper down his shirt, in his shoes and definitely in his hair (thanks to the fact that papa had ground them up first, the really stuck in his hair). His favorite thing to do was to pick them up and help papa put them into the garbage can. Doesn't take much to entertain him!

October is our favorite time of year. The weather is beautiful, the skyline so full of color with all the trees changing and so many memories made in October. We got engaged on October 18th, 2002 and married October 25th, 2003. We love to take walks, it is not to hot and the air just smells like fall. Bonfires, roasting marshmallows and friends. That is what October means to me. God paints amazing pictures in October and I am so thankful that this year we got to share it with our baby boy. He loved the leaves, what is he going to do with the snow? I love experiencing all the firsts with Daniel. You get them initial, I am not sure face and the steps backward. Once he sees mommy or daddy jumping in you get a few steps toward whatever you are doing and then once he tries it, it is all over from there. I love his faces as he experiences these things for the first time. I fall in love all over again each time his eyes light up with amazement at God's wonders.
