Fall Things....

We are having such a gorgeous fall here in New England!  Some things to say on this Fall Day....

**We had a great time at a local apple orchard yesterday.  We went on tractor rides, painted faces, painted pumpkins, picked apples and danced with Nana and Opa.  We also finally got a family picture of the 4 of us.  Hence the changed blog pic!

**I only have 2 weeks and 5 days left of Maternity Leave - entirely too short of a time.  Though it has been a bit of a challenge, I have loved being home with the boys.

**We are so happy today is a bonus day with MJ - it is so nice to have all 4 of us home and Drew has really enjoyed some extra time with Mom!

**Drew continues to be amazing - he is so patient and understanding when it comes to having an infant in the house.

**Jack is a bit of a tough baby - he spends a lot of time crying and doesn't like to be put down without creating a screaming fit.  He IS getting better, but it definitely consumes you!

**Then we think about the fact that even though Jack is tough, we probably notice it more because there is a toddler in the house that needs attention as well.  When it is just you and a baby, there isn't anything better to do than tend to their needs.

**How in the world are our boys growing so quickly - in just a few short weeks Jack will already be 2 months old and Drew will be 3 - time needs to slow down!

**Even with an infant, we have managed to put up a dozen jars of applesauce and a dozen of salsa for the winter - not bad if I do say so myself!

Life is good as a family of 4!

It's so nice to get a photo of everyone together, isn't it? Glad you're enjoying these beautiful fall days and hope that the transition back to work goes well.
