Gorgeous Fall

The beautiful weather this week gave us a chance to spend lots of time outside.  The sun brightens the already beautiful red, yellow and orange trees lining the streets in Madison.  Gorgeous!  Like most things placed before a 5 month old baby, these multi-colored leaves went right in Louisa's mouth.  Let's just say I'm testing out the "hygiene hypothesis" - that the uptick in food allergies is due to babies being raised in ultra-sanitary environments.

Sorry if this grosses you out.  I have to embrace Lou's skills, otherwise I spend too much time researching how to make the spitting up stop.

Louisa brings so much joy to our lives.  She's happy most days and saves quite a few smiles for Nate and Georgia each evening.  I'm still thankful for my part-time job - it really makes me appreciate my time with Lou on my days off.  On my most recent day off, we went pumpkin picking!  Louisa enjoyed the pumpkins, but found the small gourds a bit easier to handle.  She spent at least an hour "chewing" on this gourd yesterday.

"Or this one.  I like the dirt on it"

Finally, one with a nice handle

Living the Life

I broke the 1 hour mark today - running for that long, that is, since having Loubear. It almost feels as though I should count it as a 70 minute run though since I was pushing 28 pounds + (dog+baby+stroller+water bottle+ i pod). I guess I will let my body make that decision come the race in November!  Summer has returned to Madison for the week, so I made sure to take advantage of it by getting out for a run. Ries loves riding in the front of the stroller. I promise, this is on the 2nd half of the run. She ran alongside for the first 30 minutes.  The video below is especially for Auntie Anne...
