Our Week in Photos

 I love these little moments with August, when he's post-nap and extra-snuggly.

 Toward the end of the day, when we're killing time before Papa gets home, we'll sometimes turn on an episode of a kids' show (we like WordGirl and Sesame Street) and this is how he sits.  My heart is a total mess at that point.

 How we generally FaceTime with Aunt Haley.  Such a gentleman.

 Last Saturday, we went to Touch-A-Truck in Canton, where August got to check out SWAT tanks, garbage trucks, and lots of fire engines!  He loved sitting in the driver's seat, and threw mini-fits when we pulled him out.  It's so fun to take him to these things and watch his little eyes light up.

 Later that night, we tried out a new pizza place downtown, and were super happy about finding a new haunt close to home.  This JP's 'don't mess with me while I'm eating' face.

 August spent a family lunch last Sunday hooping his abuela's nose.  She is a very patient lady!

 This is what happens with August feeds himself yogurt.  It's not as bad as it could be, but we've got a long way to go with his self-feeding skills.

The little man is a big fan of chewing on my empty Starbucks cups.  Also, check out that cute, crazy hair!

Mamas make the comfiest lounge chairs.

We were rained out of a play date on Wednesday, so invited our friends over to our house instead!  Grandma, August's Mickey Mouse plane was a big hit with the younger crowd.

I love his messy bedhead after nap time.  Surely, we will cut his hair one day, but I'm not looking forward to it.

Also on Wednesday night, we hit up the Atlanta Botanical Gardens for their Fall Festival.  JP met us there after work, and it was such a great way to end the day!  We absolutely love being members of the ABG; it's so wonderful to have another green space to bring August to when the weather agrees.

I am hard at work on August's big boy too, so we can move him in between Christmas and New Year's (after that, we'll start prepping the nursery for the new munchkin).  The theme is loosely 'woodland,' and we got his new comforter in this week!  He loves sitting up on his new twin bed (a gift from his abuelos) because it is close to the fan in his new room (!!), and extra fun to bounce on his tush.  I can't wait to share more pictures as it comes together!

Lastly, today is one of my favorite days of the year, because I get to celebrate my wonderful, sweet, patient, handsome husband, JP!  Y'all, where would I be if he hadn't been born?  Where would August and Mia be?  He roots our family in all the best ways, and I love him more every day!  Happy birthday, mip!
