A weekend of firsts!

To start.  This guy:

Has his first ear infection.  I'm lucky that my kids really are very healthy.  Elisa didn't even get her first real illness until after she was a year old, and Aidan has only had one cold last March.  So, truly, getting to almost 10 months before dealing with cranky, non-sleeping, non-eating child while having an older sibling in the house is pretty good.  Here's hoping to a quick recovery and the return of our normal schedule.

This one:

Is getting a crash course in potty training.  After trying to encourage her for months to sit on the potty and getting resistance, we put her in big girl underwear today and wrapped her in a cloth diaper to try to catch any accidents.  She hates the feel of the wet underwear and will sit forEVER on the potty but waits until she's up and her underwear is back on before she pees.  Literally like 2 minutes after she's back up!

But other than's the first weekend of fall.  And it feels like it.  I had this idea for a picture to take with her when it got much colder and saw her in her knit hat and all but we were playing in the leaves and just decided to snap it.

We had a lot of fun playing out in the leaves while Aidan napped this morning.

Maybe this evening, if he's up to it, I will try to get some of Aidan.  I was just glad she cooperated for once.
