The countdown is on, one more week until Halloween and we cannot wait to celebrate our first official holiday as a family of five!! Sharing some pictures of our October today, as well as five things I never want to forget about October 2018 – like usual, it went WAY TOO FAST.
I took all three girls to three different pumpkin patches. One trip lasted all of fifteen minutes and we barely made it out alive, another ended with me nursing in the front seat of my car while the big girls entertained themselves by jumping over the seats in the back, and the last one was so hot we were all sweating (including Remie). Expectations are low with three kids but we made all the memories and I am calling it a win.
Avalon’s first field trip was this month and it was just about the cutest thing ever. It is so much fun seeing her make little friends and getting to experience being in big girl school just like Waverly. Lately she is so silly (and getting her own spunk as well) but her personality is just so big and she is so much fun to be around.
Waverly is settling into first grade and absolutely loving it! This month she had picture day and was so excited about it, I also took her two little sisters to come eat lunch with her at school and she was so proud. She keeps a photo of her, Avalon & Remie in her bookbag — she will forever be the child that keeps us on our toes but she truly is the BEST big sister ever.
We have been seeing Remerie’s personality more & more the past few weeks, she is using her voice and smiling more all of the time. The big girls get so excited when she smiles or makes eye contact with each of them, they also argue over who gets to hold her throughout the day. She is definitely sooooo very loved and will never know what quiet is.
This month we got our mantle up just in time for the holidays, my husband made it out of wood from a tree that actually fell in our neighborhood. It really is hard getting house projects done with three kids and jobs and everything else, but I remind myself all the time that one day our kids will be grown and gone and we will have all the time in the world for projects and then … we will be sad. For now, soaking these little girls in while we can.
Hope you are having the best October! XO
