Fall is here!


OH, gosh where do I begin. Aaron and I are very excited for Fall to begin for many reasons. First, it is our favorite season and we wish it would last much longer! The leaves changing colors, cool mornings and evenings, windows open, we just love it!!! Second, football has started- I think Aaron is WAY more excited about this than I am, however I do enjoy Husker game days! Third, the summer has been crazy!!! We are ready to slow down and just focus on family, relaxing, and enjoying our time together at home.

Calvin Matthew is growing like a weed! He is almost 6 1/2 months old! He is sitting up all by himself and is "army" crawling everywhere, he is fast. It's like he woke up one day and said, "I'm going to crawl." He is just a joy to watch and he is a very good baby...we thank God everyday for blessing us with such a sweet boy. He has brought us so much joy from the minute he wakes up to the time he lays down for bed at night!

Aaron and I are doing well- we would like do some updates to our home this fall and winter. Aaron showed me that he can be quite the handy man recently- I jammed a key into our front door knob and we had to replace it with a new one. I will admit I had doubts about if we would ever have a door knob on front door again...ha. Just kidding Aaron. Aaron was in a good friend of his wedding a couple weeks ago and we had a really nice time. Aaron enjoyed showing Calvin off. We have enjoy having grandma Farber in Lincoln. Calvin likes it when she babysits him (and Aaron and I enjoy a night out alone every once in a while too) We also went to South Dakota for my grandma Anderson's 80th birthday party. 6 hours in the car was a little to long for Calvin, but he did great. 5 1/2 into it he started getting a little fussy. Now every time we put him in his car seat he squrims. We tell him we are not going far. :) My grandma enjoyed meeting the boys, Calvin and Ryder, and we look forward to the next time!

I will try to better at updating this blog now that life is slowing down again...below are a few pictures. Enjoy! I hope you all are doing wonderful.

Calvin started eating food August 7th. I am making all his food for now. It's been fun, but it is a lot of work. We will see how long it lasts. ;)
