We are having an amazing time in California. Amber and Andrews wedding was absolutely perfect and we danced all night long, Doiron only stayed long enough to take some pics and dance a song or two. We couldn’t have done it without Grandma and Grandpa Hahn who came down to babysit and give Doiron his first “camping” experience. On Sunday Gma and Gpa had a huge BBQ to introduce D to all their friends and hang with some family. There was more music and more dancing, if this boy isn’t a lover of music I don’t know what he’ll be. Doiron has been teasing us with a step here and there, but last night he took 4 steps twice in a row, and today we got 6! He’s getting more and more confident, I’m sure he’ll be running around by the end of the week! I don’t have many pictures today as I’ve been playing around with my film camera, I’ll have lots to share soon! Until then we are sad and oh so happy to be going home to daddy tomorrow for our first Halloween….thanks for tuning in, we’ll see y’all soon!
Hold on…it’s only Friday. Grandma and grandpa just picked up Doiron and I’m getting a real pedi/mani with my best girls from college! Here are a few pics of our trip so far. Oh and after I finished my first roll of film, I rolled it up and opened the camera to find that it had ripped and is ruined so sad.
The problem with loving this time of year is how quickly it passes by! I picked my nephew Michael, or should I say Mike, up from school the other day and took the boys to a local pumpkin patch. We got some great photos before I ran out of memory on the camera, someday I will have my very own beautiful DSLR camera . . . but for now I picked up a great film camera for only 30 bucks at a store I’ve fallen in love with, Steph’s Stuff. In other news, Doiron went on an audition for a huggies commercial after being scouted in a coffee shop, he had a call back, but unfortunately they want the whole family, so I don’t think we’ll be getting the gig . . . but it was a crazy experience to have none the less! Doiron and I shared a cold over the weekend, both are on the mend and SOOOOO ready for our trip to California, Doiron will finally get to meet Auntie Ambi and Pammy!!!!!! Followed by lots o love from the coastal grandparents. For now, here are some Pumpkin Pics to ooo and aww over . . .
it’s international baby wearing week! the very first piece of baby gear i thrifted was a moby wrap, and doiron lived in it his first few months of being. i then found a sakura bloom sling and loved that just as much, ok maybe a little bit more because it’s slightly more stylish. i set out to pull some of my favorite photos of doiron and i wrapped up together but uncovered many a daddy’n’baby photo that melted my heart all over again. although most of these pictures are from doiron’s earlier months we still don our wrap every time we go out together and i love this so much more than a stroller or carseat. there’s nothing to lug around and i get to cuddle with doiron and whisper in his ear. also, i love that he’s on eye level with everyone else and is interacting face to face. i have just submitted myself in the running to participate in the next sling diaries, i’m sure i wont be chosen, but its nice to dream. enjoy these daily doirons from the past, I know i did.
the weather was ridiculously amazing this weekend. we went hunting for a farmers market on saturday, were severely disappointed. however, we happened upon a sidewalk chalk festival in round rock making it the perfect outing for the first chill of the season. we followed it up with cozy fires and a little halloween decorating. here are some bits and pieces from our weekend.

contrary to popular belief, October is my absolute favorite month. it brings crisp air and the promise of pumpkins and apple cider, followed by family feasts and Christmas trees! (Yes plural!) this fall has not disappointed it has been beautifully cool and windy (by Austin’s standards). Here are a few photos from Doiron and I’s first fall adventure….
Tomorrow I have the rare pleasure of having Saturday off… We have big plans…farmers market, pulling out Halloween decor, and meeting up with old friends (so excited!) I will be absolutely astonished if we achieve it all!
