We accomplished our first grocery store outing today and sweet little Janey did not make a peep. All the way there and during and back-she even let me put away all the food. I think I bought enough to last a good two weeks with a quick fruit/milk/bread run 1/2 way through.
Patrick was so good. He promised me he would help me go as fast as possible by being a good listener, and he was excellent. He was rewarded with a little toy at the end of the trip.
I couldn't resist the pumpkins and the mums. I know it's too early to even think about fall but they were calling my name.
My favorite month starts tomorrow-I've been watching the squirrels outside the window where I sit and nurse, and little yellow leaves are starting to fall. The nights are cooling down, and the sun is bright.
I feel so grateful right now...for my beautiful new baby, food in my cabinets, kids in good schools, a helpful husband, and a cozy house that I never want to leave.
