It's nearly Halloween and I'm already thinking about Christmas...Being a toddler's mama really gives new meaning to the words 'organization' and 'planning'. Autumn gets busier by the day and is rapidly expanding her vocabulary. I keep saying that I need to make a list of all the words that she can say so here's a shot...
nana (banana and her name for my mom, my grandmother and teddy's grandmother)
meemee (mermaid--this is what she calls her auntie rebecca)
apple (the fruit and what she calls her uncle brian)
durka (uncle derek)
buddy (birdie and buddy--my parents' dog)
...there is more, including a plethora of animal sounds including: meow, *snort*, woof, tweet, moo, etc.
She's a genius, right? mmhmmmmm!
Anyhoo, we had a little shindig over the weekend to ring in the spooky season and Autumn was the cutest little penguin that ever there was...Along with her cute little skunk and strawberry sidekicks. There is something about babies in costumes...It's so hilarious that it verges on cruelty. haha! There was lots of delicious food, lovely friends and family members and some pumpkin carving goodness.
Like I said earlier, however...It's already feeling like crunch time for Christmas gift-making despite the fact that actual Halloween hasn't even come yet. Ay Ay Ay!
I have lots of plans for good, homemade Christmas gifts and I'll share some recipes and ideas in my upcoming posts. For now, I'll leave you with a few pictures...
