Guess who is two today??

That's right- this big guy is! We did a little pre-birthday celebrating yesterday by hitting up our favorite park and basking in the beautiful weather.

It was the perfect fall day. Sunny, warm, a little breeze, and beautiful leaves on the trees.

I kept up the tradition of taking our fall photos as seen last year's post- Michael's first birthday park photos.

In case you are wondering...yes, I do have to bribe my son to take photos with fruit snacks.

We also had fun looking for "balls"- aka the walnuts that fall from the trees.

It hardly seems like a year has past and yet so much has happened since then! I'll be back with the full blown birthday post later this week- have a great day!

Tuesday Updates

Wow...where did the weekend go? Where did September go?

We broke our cardinal rule this past weekend and took Michael to an ISU tailgate with us. He actually did really well and it was a beautiful day. He loved riding around in this little wagon train that our friend with twins has! We carted them around for a little bit and everyone thought it was the cutest thing. I think the boys' favorite part was hearing the band play- yay!

It is hard to believe that last time we took Michael to a tailgate he was just a little peanut. And now we have a new little peanut in our family....

I paid $20 again to park close to our tailgating spot in a public lot and then I headed home before kickoff to get the boys into bed. It was kind of fun to watch the game at home on TV in a quiet house...shh, don't tell my husband! However, it was a brutal loss to Texas and it makes me so sad for our team. Luckily we still have a lot of season left so hopefully we'll rally and get some more wins under our belt!

Trace had his four month appointment yesterday. I scheduled it a few weeks late so I could get both boys in at the same time which was a marginally good idea, mostly thanks to the fact that Scott could be there with me. Trace is weighing in at 15.8 pounds and is 26 inches long! He is in the 75% for height and 60% for weight, which keeps him right on the same curve he's been on. He is still clocking in smaller than his brother which just amazes me.

It's Tuesday already and I haven't even started laundry...I think it is going to be a busy day! Have a good one!
