Welcome to autumn
We found three small crickets in the house in as many days. Robb says it means the weather has taken a real turn toward cold. After the hottest summer on record in the DC Metro area, cool days are welcome.
Robb's class reunion was a lot of fun. I finally met Dawn, my nemesis for the past ten years, pictured above second from the left. She was Robb's girlfriend in high school. (That trollop.) But meeting Dawn ruined everything. I mean, how can I keep holding a fake grudge against someone who looks and acts like she might be the nicest kindergarten teacher in the world? I'm just wasting energy there.
I completed and mailed a very VERY belated something that's been on the sewing table. More on this toward the end of the week when I'm quite sure the eagle has landed.
Of course we are still keeping Maureen around. We took her to Bowles Farm today to pick out a pumpkin, visit the petting zoo, and take a spin on the hayride. Most of all she enjoyed the people watching. Now 9 months old, Maureen is crawling. FAST. Her favorite color is shiny. She says "dada" and is starting to make the signs for "milk" and "dog." Mo cut her third tooth this week on the top front right; the first two were the front bottom ones. Her hair has started to curl into ringlets on the back of her neck. She can almost kind of clap but not really--I just want her to. And she loves loves loves music.
But in the past several weeks Momo decided she should start her days at 6am and then only take one 45 minute nap around lunchtime, which is why poor Mommy never updates the blog anymore. I keep telling myself, It's only a phase... Everything is only a phase.
