Oh! Autumn!


Afternoon at the playground, originally uploaded by Venus In Furs.
Gibson has officially moved out of his crib for good and into his toddler bed. We had gotten the toddler bed set up in his room before Oliver was born, and started the transition then, hoping to ease him out of the crib so by the time Oliver was ready to move into the crib, Gibson would be well out it and used to his bed. About 2 weeks ago we stopped using the crib at night (we'd used the bed for his single daily nap, but preferred to use the crib at night mostly so we could sleep without worrying about his getting up and wandering in the middle of the night, but he sleeps soundly usually so it was the adults hanging onto him using the crib, not him). That's pretty big, I think. Otherwise there's little to report. Things are fairly quiet with us.

Gibson is a good big brother, and Oliver is doing well, growing and thriving and getting super big. We'll have a website set up for him soon. We'll have a checkup for Gibson next month so we'll all get to see how big and tall he's getting.

I know we're heading into the holiday season... For the early shoppers Gibson does have a wish list online at amazon.com. But there is nothing he needs desperately, and there aren't any big ticket items that are on there. He has a room full of toys and a closet full of clothes. So there's no need to go crazy.

My parents finally got electricity back to their house after Hurricane Sandy knocked it out (though they were out of town for 2 weeks, so it wasn't a as major an inconvenience as it could have been- they only had to deal with no power for 3 days.... ) Our hearts are still made heavier by the ongoing power outages and people struggling with so much destruction in the communities surrounding ours.

We hope that you're doing well.
