Hints of Fall

Fall is definitely in the air up here in the Northeast. All the latest fall photos can be found here on Flickr. (Click on the link)

Also, you'll notice the new baby countdown ticker is up. Genevieve found out the due date at one of her recent appointments, so the countdown has begun, even though she's 4 1/2 months along already!

Daddy's not allowed to hold the rake, or show Evan how to hold it, only Evan hold rake.

Evan in an overly dramatic windup as he is about to throw handfuls of leaves, most of them just landed on himself.

Genevieve worked today, so I was Mr. Mom for the day. Evan was Mr. Crankypants. This morning was rough, there was a lot of screaming and crying, and that was mostly just me. (rimshot) In his defense, he did have shots yesterday, 4 to be exact. So I think he was a little sore, and maybe not feeling so well. But toddler meltdowns and temper tantrums aside, Evan and I had fun raking leaves in the front yard today. It was warm out today, but not hot, and there were some really gusty winds, so a lot of leaves were coming down. Evan had fun raking and running through the leaves, throwing them up in the air, and watching them fly away.

Weights & Measures
As I mentioned before, Evan went to the doctor yesterday for a check up and shots. He did get the regular flu shot, but we're still on the fence about the H1N1 shot. We've been hearing lots of bad things about it, and we're not sure what's true, and what's not. Anyway, here's Evan's latest stats:

Height: 33 inches (95th percentile, tall for his age, 16 months)

Weight: 25 lbs (75th percentile)
