Big days

It seems as though life got infinitely busier with the start of school. Everyone execpt Aurora is attending class in one form or another. Logan started preschool two days a week (it is going well), Don is back teaching the night class and elementary school, and I am taking a serger class every Wednesday night. Add general life craziness and it has been pretty wild. And I can't believe it is October. Wha?

Aurora is growing like a weed and is starting to cut her first tooth. A bump on the gum confirms it, in addition to her surly mood of late. The kid is generally so happy that any crabbiness is noticed immediately. So now we have a reason! She also started doing the sign (we are teaching her basic sign language) for milk. Hooray! Now she can tell me when she is hungry. And last but not least she stood on her own yesterday for a couple seconds. She is barely a baby anymore.

Logan taught Aurora how to hold hands yesterday. I couldn't leave them to get a camera because they were on the bed (Aurora crawls off immediately). It was adorable and they both stayed still for a considerable period of time with hands locked. My heart melted...
