Fall is fast approaching. The temperature this weekend isn’t supposed to get out of the 50’s. The trees are changing color and dropping their leaves. Charla says the trees are “crying” when their leaves fall off. When we go for walks, she is constantly stopping to pick up a leaf, “oh, a pretty one mommy”! She also loves to stomp through a pile of them and listen to the crunch. I admit, I like that too!

The only reason I don’t like fall is because that means winter is just around the corner. I’m not a fan of winter at all! I don’t like the freezing cold and I really don’t like the snow. Last winter, Charla didn’t like the snow either. Tim would take her outside in her little snow pants and boots and she would just stand in one place the entire time. Soon she would get cold and start crying. Hopefully, she’s a little more open to playing outside this winter or it is going to be a very long season!

Today we went to the park. This will probably be one of the last times we are able to go. It amazes me how much Charla’s changed in the course of a summer. Earlier in the summer she was still having difficulties climbing the stairs to get to the slide, remaining upright while going down a slide and walking across wooden bridges. Now though, she’s like an old pro. She’s all over the equipment, up the stairs, down the slide, across the balance beam. All she needs me to do is be impressed and that’s not a hard job at all! We have reached the final few months of toddlerhood. By the time this winter is over, she will be a little kid.
