i forgot to post this picture. i think this is either Amy and Salomon or Poppy and Tata. Whoever it is, they have nice big teeth. :)

i am so excited about this wonderful weather. before we moved, i was dreading the Texas heat. having been in Texas the past two September's, I knew the heat wasn't over just because it was "autumn". However, the one thing that has really been cooperative since we've been here is the weather.

in honor of Autumn, I have:
*burned constantly my favorite Hazelnut and Pumpkin candles.
*baked homemade peanut butter cookies (and apple bread tomorrow)
*cooked a huge pot of stew for the first time ever. it's nowhere near as good as my dad's, but it's pretty darn tasty.
*making chili tomorrow.
*dug out our fall/winter clothes and julian picked out one of my favorite long sleeve green shirts to wear today.
*realized I better come up with a baby name for this little one, whatever he/she may be.
*begun thinking about the holidays/birthdays. Dustin will be 31 next month and I hope we get to do something special. it's not like we don't live in a city with resources for a good time. :)

I have not, however, abandoned my daily requirement of lemonade. I think it could carry over into autumn quite nicely.

Randomness: Should I cut Annabelle's hair? I love how long it's getting, and so easy to pull into a ponytail or piggies if we need to leave the house quickly. She just hates the tangles and has been asking me to cut it short for some time now.

Randomness #2: Julian has been coughing like crazy now also. Their fevers are gone, just lots of coughing. He keeps saying, "Mama, I'm siiick. I wanna "chew chew chew"." (chew chew chew is either gum or cough drops)

Randomness #3: Julian won't keep his clothes on. He strips down (completely naked) and asks for his "big boy dunnies". I love that he calls his "undies", "dunnies". He has peed all over this house, but for the first time in his little life, he is actually showing an interest in using the toilet. He has done 4 poops in the potty and I am actually seeing some hope that someday he may want to actually be potty trained.

Randomness #4: I miss my family. especially Baby J with the chubby cheeks that is now army crawling and rolling over. But for those who have asked, Yes, despite all the setbacks, I love Austin and am so happy to be here. I promise I will take new pictures soon, I just need to get into the groove here.
