stick a needle in your leg...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

today is sam's 2-month birthday. and we celebrate big around here. i took all his clothes off and had him stabbed three times with a needle. i don't know what all he's vaccinated against, but i do know that he has a band-aid on each leg and is realllly tired.



i thought i'd make it through, no sweat. tough love, kid. buuuut...the tears welled up when i heard his SCREAM, saw the nurse shake him to get him to breathe again...and watched him cry and cry and cry...i needed a drink. being that it was only 11:30 and i didn't think a cocktail was appropriate, i drove us to starbucks and partook of a tasty pumpkin spice latte...mmmm fall!!!



i love fall...not as much as i love summer, because it means dreary winter will be coming next...but i do love the START of fall, with cool-ish days and the leaves and the way the light is a little different. and because there is a montrosity of a tent in my backyard:

crappy picture. but i just took it through the window from my little office chair. it's our new tent that will comfortably sleep two adults on a queen size air matress and a baby in a pack-and-play. it's huge. you're actually really only seeing HALF of it in the picture. i think our days of seriously roughing it are gone for a little while. i'll miss being able to pack and leave in a matter of minutes. but for a few years, will change gears a little bit. and it's ok. woohoo for brown county in a little over a week!! i'm really glad we decided not to call off our trip (fourth year in a row!) just because there's a little one...i want to have fun family traditions! hiking and seeing all the leaves, walking through nashville, getting pumpkin sundaes....MMMMM....i think i'm most excited about those pumpkin sundaes!

he's not mad about it either:

took that picture at kevin and amanda's during the colts game last weekend. kevin got a huge grin out of sammy! love it!

ohhhh and fall means johnny appleseed, so i bought a ton of apples at the farmer's market and made a PIE! and it is GOOD! it tastes like someone else made it!!! as hava says, i'm domesticated...here's proof:
