Every year we make a trip up to Green Bluff. This year we made two! The first trip the weather was just amazing! We could not have asked for a more perfect Fall day! Jayney was fascinated by the apples and by the faces she was learning from Grandpa Tim. The second trip was a little colder but still lots of fun and a good excuse for JJ to wear her Halloween tutu!

Our little lady took her first swimming lessons this Fall! I use the word lessons rather loosely as it was for babies that cant even walk let alone swim on their own yet. None the less it was a great water exploration and splashing around playtime! We went to classes at the YMCA two days a week for a month. We even had Grandma Kim and Daddy come to watch. On the last week Dusty was actually able to get in and swim too. It was awesome to see Jayney get a little better and more comfortable in the water each lesson.

It is pretty exciting for this mama to see her getting some nutrients in a form other than breast milk. I really want to be able to nurse her to a year, as many sources say it is what is healthiest for babies, but there are days when I really wish she was not so dependent on me. But I am thankful that I have a stay-at -home mom lifestyle and body that is able to solely support her in this way. I know there will come a day (probably far sooner than I am ready for it) when I will miss this sweet simple stage of life.
