Welcome, October!

Weekly Happenings: We didn’t do too much out of the ordinary, just regular weekly stuff. I did, on a whim, take Joseph to the zoo on Friday, but other than that, the week was pretty laid back.

The Weekly Weather: It’s been a pretty even mix of warmer and cooler days, which is typical for the start of fall in San Antonio. I still keep hoping that it will cool down for good before Halloween, but in all likelihood, that won’t happen. :/

What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been keeping busy with work and school. He also just got called to be the first counselor in the Sunday School presidency. This will be a better calling for him to hold while working and going to school because it won’t take up any of his time during the week.

What Sarah’s Been Up To: I’ve been keeping busy with piano (I have a new student starting this week and my first recital is in a couple of weeks), my visiting teaching stuff, and getting geared up for not only getting the ward choir ready for Christmas (as well as everything in-between) but getting myself ready for the Messiah production that will be happening the first part of December.

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He’s been experiencing life in many new ways (I took him for a walk around the neighborhood while he rode his bike…every incline was met with huffing and puffing on the way up and with him raising his feet off the ground and saying “Weeeeee!” as he coasted down). He’s also recognized his cuteness…the other day I told him, “Joseph, you are so cute!” He answered with, “I’m so cute!” using the same inflection that I did and everything. Another thing he’s displayed is his ever-growing sense of humor. Yesterday he told me, “Mommy, my tummy says, (insert a different voice) ‘I need more food!'”. He also pretended to burp just so that he could say “Excuuuse ME!” I’m glad that he’s been able to be so happy because physically, he’s been dealing with quite a severe allergy attack which has lasted several days. I have been giving him his allergy medicine, along with Ibuprofen. He had a couple of rough nights with coughing fits (though he slept all the way through the night last night), and has been asking me if I could take him to the doctor so that he can feel better (sorry, kid…not really anything they can do).

Joseph loved the fact that the arms could fold.
He doesn’t care about periods of time conflicting with each other…

Looking at his mail…from I don’t know how long ago…when Jason sent him a post card from Long Beach.
General Conference is hard for a little one to completely pay attention to, so Paul set up our one-person tent inside so that Joseph had a place to read. 🙂
It looks pretty comfy in there…I may take a nap in there later. 😉
