Glorious fall day!

Sweet Rina,

Today was a really sunny fall day and I wanted to go for a stroll (a stroll for you, a workout for me! šŸ™‚ ), but I had to wait until you got up from your nap. I’m not quite sure what’s happening to you lately, but you don’t nap in the mornings anymore and then you napped from 1130 to 1415 today and it’s been like this for the past few days!!! You also skip your afternoon nap. I’m not really worried about it because you’re still sleeping 11h30 every night, so I figure you get more than enough rest in a 24hrs period. You might just be outgrowing your naps, who knows?!?

Anyway… Once you finally got up, I gave you a quick bottle and then propped you in your backpack and we headed out for Swan Lake. I was a bit disappointed because the boardwalk that runs across the lake was closed for renovation šŸ˜¦ so we had to go around through the streets. Not a big problem in itself, but the view was a lot less pleasant to look at.

We made our way to the top of Christmas Hill just as the clouds started rolling in (of course, they would!), but I still managed to capture a few nice pictures:

You seem to think it's funny that I'm sweating so much!

You're a funny girl, you know that? Always cracking me up!

Showing your lovely toothy grin!

As we were done posing and it was getting a bit chilly since the sun was hiding away, I put you back on my back and we made our way back to the trail around Swan Lake and came back home. Of course, as soon as we settled inside the apartment, the sun came shining out again! I gathered some wood with high hopes of starting a fire once you would be in bed for the night (our fireplace isn’t baby-proof and I don’t trust you enough to light a fire during your waking hours!), but now, I’m too hot, so that won’t happen. At least, we have firewood inside now, for next time!

Overall, it was a lovely day with my lovely girl (you) and I even had time to make a packing list of what we’ll need on our upcoming trip! I’m pretty excited about it! We’ll be spending one week with your Grandma and Nonno and another week with your Grand-Papa and Mamie! I’ll really miss your Dad though, but it should be plenty of fun!

On a side note, I have to admit that I caved in tonight. I was really craving some carbs so I made a toast with some hummus on top after 3 weeks of no carbs whatsoever! Oh well, I’ll be fine!

Love,
Mom & Dad Xxo
