yippee, it's fall!

i'm so excited to celebrate elodie's first fall. the smell of burning wood in the air, her first piece of pumpkin pie, lying in a bed of leaves and getting bundled up to crawl around outside (she's finally getting the hang of it!). everything is new, you just have to adjust your eyes to see it.

cheap thrills

ok, so some might say that this isn't the sweetest thing i've ever done but she sure seemed to like it!

when all is said and done...

what will I be proud of? will i be able to say that i treated those around me with love, respect and kindness? i am the mother of a beautiful, vibrant 9 1/2 month old baby girl.  she is growing before my could she have just barely been able to focus on good night moon at the end of her long day and now she is crawling away from me giggling? i am re-reading an oldie but a goodie, the four agreements by don miguel ruiz. 

the four agreements are: 
be impeccable with your word, 
don't take anything personally, 
don't make assumptions and 
always do your best. 

i'm pretty sure that if I held these lenses up to every action that I would be...perfect? maybe not, but i would be a bit closer to who I want elodie to look up to. this is definitely a book that is worth revisiting annually.
