our civic duty

Today we went out to vote. Gibson got to learn about our civic duty first hand.

He also got to experience autumn. It's getting cold out there. It's not even 50 degrees, but it's sunny and bright and the leaves are lovely colors.

I bundled him up in corduroy overalls and a tiny fleece motorcycle jacket. I topped him off in a beautiful hand knit cashmere hat that my mother made for him. He stayed warm and looked stylish. What more could any baby want?

It's great to see him more alert and awake when we go out these days. He used to fall immediately asleep when we'd put him in the carrier and go for a walk. Now he spends much of the time looking around and taking in the sights.

Of course, as soon as we got home I laid him down and he conked right out because voting and looking is hard work.
