Catching Up

It has been a crazy couple of weeks, and I finally have some time to catch up on writing about all of the things that have been going on.

After a vacation, it is always hard to get adjusted.  The pile of laundry seemed never ending and let's not even talk about the dust bunnies that took up residence while we were gone.  Like all things, little by little, we have been getting back into our old routines.  The house is finally clean, or as clean as it can be with a 10 month old around.  Our refrigerator is fully stocked with goodies for both us and the baby and work is well, work.

I am also making good progress of my to-do list.  Nathan's baby book is progressing well and I should be able to get it done before his first birthday (I'm still in serious denial that my baby is turning one!).

This isn't to say that we haven't been having fun.  We still have our Saturday morning tradition of "bebe nageur" followed by breakfast downtown.  The sun has been shining so it has been so nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy the terraces.  This isn't always the case in Clermont-Ferrand.

Now that vacation is over, we've also made sure to give Nathan a haircut so he can look spiffy at daycare.  Doesn't he look handsome now?

I love his curly brown hair, but I have to admit that he looks so much better with short hair.  This haircut, his second in 10 months, was a little lackluster so there were no videos or pictures.  As you can see by the picture, he has learned where mommy hides his toys and his new favorite activity has been taking out all the toys and spreading them all over the rug.  Hey whatever works.

But by far, the best thing we've done this past few weeks was a picnic yesterday afternoon.  The picnic was at a bed and breakfast out in the mountains about 20 minutes away.  The view was amazing!  It was such a great day and it was so nice to go and enjoy the sunshine. Nathan had such a great time rolling around the grass and playing with the other kids.  It is days like these that make living in France worth while.

And now, we are getting into the full swing of September.  Beginning the birthday countdowns and trying to enjoy every moment before winter comes along!  Is it sad that I've already taken out the fall coats?
