fall

Autumn is hands down my favourite season. We'll probably have this conversation at least three times this year. There's just something about sweater weather, pumpkin flavored everything, the changing leaves, and the scents that get me. It also helps that my birthday is in October and that some of my fondest childhood memories revolve around trick-or-treating and the awesome homemade costumes my mom made us. Either way, I've now had two pumpkin spice lattes, busted out the fall candles (currently burning, you guessed it, pumpkin!) and brought out my warmer weather clothes/packed up my summer wardrobe. I peruse Pinterest on the daily for fall ideas and decorations but I know myself well enough to know I will not be the type to get all artsy fartsy and put out all these adorable throw pillows and knick knacks. I'm just too lazy to go through all that effort with the exception of a few fall things that decorate the dining room table:

I typically avoid turning on the heat until the last possible moment, but now that we have a tiny human to watch out for we caved and turned it on yesterday since our area was seeing lows in the 40s and our thermostat was plummeting with the temperatures since I had absent mindedly left the windows open the night before. We've also been scrambling to get Elden some warmer clothes since he outgrew so many items so quickly. Luckily, we took advantage of an Old Navy Labor Day 30% off sale and those items are out for delivery today, my mom picked him up an adorable sweater with bicycles on it and she is also making him flannel-lined corduroy overalls. I'd like to think that will be enough to last him at least a few months but we'll need to play it by ear and see if he continues to grow at the pace he has been.
"Ma, it's so cold out here!"
In other news, I went to my OB on Friday for my postpartum checkup and despite the PTSD that my virginia was most certainly suffering from, everything went off without a hitch. The nurses took Elden during my exam and he was a well behaved little man. Probably didn't hurt that I nursed him as my blood pressure was taken which put him into a serious food coma (just like his mama). We laid out a birth control plan to prolong creating a baby numero dos (despite the fact that Jon has had dreams we got pregnant right away and my sister had a dream our next one was a girl I do NOT plan on making another person any time soon) and scheduled my annual checkup for a few months from now. It's so weird not to have to go there every week and pee in a cup at every visit. Not that I'm complaining. Glad to have those days behind me!
