Fall Days

We had a fun day today. We've been going to baby story hour at the library on Fridays for about a month now and today, being Halloween, they had all the kids dress up. So, Cole got to wear the skunk costume Uncle Nate bought for him! Isn't he too cute!

It's hard to believe Cole is already 9 months old.

This fall had been really beautiful and Caleb took Cole into our street this week and got a few cute pictures. The tree in our yard has never been so red before!

Auntie Hannah and Cole got to be really close while she and her friend, Trist, stayed with us. I think this is one of the only ones we got while she was with us (for almost a month!)

So, that's about it. I don't really have a lot going on... I'm still doing the cleanse and it's going well. I'm learning what I can and can't eat... and have decided that life is kind of boring without good food. That's ok though, cause I'm feeling great.
Bye for now.

so far so good.

Hey... so, I'm into this new eating thing for a week now and things are going good. I think I have a pretty good grasp of what I can eat and what I can't... meaning I'm figuring out the whole meal planning thing. It's been a really hard first week, but I made it... I'm even feeling like I've lost some weight. So, that's a plus!
That's all for now.

New Diet

So, I'm doing this new diet... well, it's not a weight loss diet, it's a getting my system all set up and back on line. I have candida and I'm sarving the little buggers out, so I'm not eating and wheat, rice, starch, sugar, fruit (except berries, grapefruit, and lemons), or dairy (except plain yogurt). So, that leaves veggies, meat, tofu, and that's about it. I'm having a hard week. I started on Thurday and will being doing this lovely diet until I'm all clean and clear and under control. And, hopefully it allows me to get back into my normal jeans! Here's hoping.

Lets see.. oh, Caleb's little sis and her friend have been staying with us for a little over 2 weeks now and it's been a lot of fun. Hannah and Trist are the best house guests we've ever had-- they do the dishes and sweep and such, not to mention, they're always available to hang out. Caleb's been working a lot lately, so it's been kind of nice to have someone around.

We've been enjoying the lovely weather we've been having this week-- Cole and I have been going on walks, and we even get Caleb to go to Harrison Blvd with us and walk around Saturday night. It was a lot of fun! I think Caleb didn't enjoy it as much as I did though, cause we went to Red Lobster for all you can eat shrimp and he ate. Need I say more?

Alright, well, that's enough for now. I'll try to be better about posting this week. Maybe I'll do it more than once!

Oh, and just for kicks, here are some pictures!

Well, we've had some crazy weather today. Let's just say I want to snuggle up with a toasty fire and drink hot cocoa!


Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I keep thinking I will tomorrow... and well, here are a few new pictures! We have a little boy who is growing heaps and learning new stuff everyday. So, I thought you might like to see what he's been doing.
