'The Alphabet Song'; one of the first songs my boys ever learned. Well, the little one is still learning it. Or should I say he just watches with the biggest of smirks on his face as I sing it over and over and over and over and...you get the point. Yep- I'm his very own personal jester (if you ask him). But what can I say? Anything to calm a crying baby! Enjoy!

As I went for my early morning workout today, the brisk air served as a subtle reminder that Fall 'falls' tomorrow! YAY! Almost time to pull out the heated blankies! I'm also planning on taking some really cool pics of the baby in a big ol' pile of leaves! He'll be wearing his older brother's (by 12 years!!) cute litte sweater with the adorable bear ears. Yep, I saved it...But enough of my rambling; check out these leafy lovelies...

One of the very first words my 18-month old learned was "doggy"....and boy, did he ever! Any animal/insect he sees now gets the pleasure of hearing "Doggy, doggy, doggy, doggy!" until they are no longer in sight! From mosquitoes to cats- it matters not. It's the funniest thing! Needless to say we are looking to get him one, but for now he might have to settle with one of these adorable puppy pieces (for boys, of course)...

I am a fierce advocate for adding prints and unique patterns to baby's wardrobe. Don't get me wrong; I like the cutesy pink and blues as much as the next gal, but damask has got to be one of my faves. It gives everything such a refined look, eh? Now if only it could help me refine my little mischievous bambino!

Although it seems that summer didn't last nearly long enough, I'm happy to see fall peeking it's little head around the corner. Why, you ask?! Because in addition to breaking out the sweaters and hats for the kiddies, I get to make my family hot apple cider- it's so much fun! Don't you agree? Happy Monday!
