Where did September go? I swear just yesterday was Labor Day weekend and now it’s not only October, but it’s already October 9th! WHOA! Slow down world!
I am not sure if time seems to be moving faster because we are now fully engrossed in school and schedules or if it can be attributed to the shorter days. The sun is now setting around 7:15 – boo! This is rough on us Michiganders as we are used to 10pm sunsets in the summer!
In our typical fashion, we’ve had another busy few weeks. Some of the highlights include a monumental birthday for mama – the BIG 4-0; a trip to Tennessee to see Grampa and Gramma and a night out on the town to see Yo Gabba Gabba LIVE. I’ll highly recommend YGG Live, and the beauty of Tennessee; however, you know how you hear people saying their body starting falling apart after 40? I am stating to think it’s true!
Tatiana is LOVING school. She continues to amaze me in how quickly she learns and picks things up. I love watching each time she seems to hit a new milestone. It seems like Gramma Darlin (my mom) and I are remarking about once a month that she’s reached a new level in conversation or abilities. It’s very cool to watch!
She did awesome on the drive to Tennessee! On the way down we stopped in Columbus, OH to see my friend Kim, her husband Tim, and their daughter Katie. It was great to see them all again, for them to meet Tatiana and to break up the trip. We drove ALL the way back on Sunday (11 hours!) and Tati didn’t complain once! She was a total trooper!
Grampa and Gramma gave Tati a Tennessee cheerleader costume while we were in town. The timing was perfect, as we had recently gone to a home football game in town. Tatiana’s cousin Courtney is a varsity cheerleader, and Court’s sister Ashley was also cheering that night, as she cheers for the area football league for kids (think little league for football). Tati was psyched to see her two cousin’s cheering and now has a new passion. On a side note, she was very concerned that Ashley was “going to get dirty” when she saw Ashley doing the splits. That’s my girl!
Picture to follow… hope you are enjoying your fall! Next up: Tatiana’s 4th birthday and a family gathering!
