seasons change...

Dirty little hands...

We went out for a walk this morning and it almost feels like Fall is finally coming... There was a crispness in the air, a cool breeze blowing and everything was covered in dew - even after the sun was high in the sky... It feels like a change is coming. 

Scarlett has all of a sudden become a "little kid" and not so much a "toddler" anymore. She can carry on a decent conversation, tell you a full story and she's really started to expand her vocabulary. She's started saying "I promise" which is really interesting because we don't tend to say that around here. She's picking words up from everywhere! 

She's really started to have strong opinions on what goes on around her - what she wants to eat, what she wants to do, what she wants to wear (or more often, NOT wear). This may be the last year we get to choose her Halloween costume for her - and she's even become pretty opinionated about that already! 

It seems like when the seasons start to change, I finally take a moment and start to notice what's going on around me. Part of me wants Scarlett to hurry up and be able to buckle herself into her seatbelt and drink something without spilling it everywhere. But another part of me wants her stay little forever... And everyday she's growing and growing anyway.
