It was gorgeous today...a wonderful day for picking apples. The girls and I visited Stuckey Farm where we took a tractor ride around the orchard and picked apples such as Honeycrisp, Red Delicious, Jonathan, and McIntosh. Afterwards, we browsed the market for other produce and goodies. This trip got me so very excited for the October pumpkin patch at Stoney Creek Farm. I just love Fall!!!

I had to post this pic! What silly kids...they truly look crazy in this particular photo. Okay, so let's not forget to update you on Miss Nadia as well. I have decided to pull her from Mom's Day Out. Last Wednesday I didn't even take her. We were on our way when Nadia began asking about her playgroup buddies...I then explained that she would be playing with her friends Pete and Maya at class and she just began sobbing and saying, "home, doctor, Amy's, Nana and Papaw's, shopping..." She clearly wanted to be anywhere but at Mom's Day Out. In addition to this, Nadia has shown some regression in leaving her in the daycare while I attend my Moms Club meetings when we were finally doing so well and she even cried a little when I left her with Amy a few days ago. Whenever we're out now she seems to have this fear that I'm leaving and clings to me. I'll never know if this is just a phase or something I created my pushing too hard but either way, she's clearly too young for Mom's Day Out. Jose and I figure it's a lot of money to spend when she doesn't even look forward to it. Also, I don't see a point in pushing something on her so young when it's not required. In a couple of years she'll have to go to preschool and she may cry then too but at least she'll be old enough to understand that Mami is coming back.

Today was a good day...other than the initial drop off, there was no crying. Jose and I hung around while the assistants gave us a couple of 10 minute updates. Anyway, when I got home there was a message from the Coordinator, Patty, saying that Nadia was doing awesome and that she didn't even need her blanky. When I arrived to pick Nadia up, she was sitting at the table with all the other kids enjoying her snack. There were a couple of other children crying at the time but it didn't seem to bother Nadia at all, she just sat there and waved to me. So staying awake until midnight worrying about her wasn't worth it this time. Hopefully Nadia will do as well next week and I can finally get some sleep the night before and relax while she's away.

Nadia recently rediscovered her adorable tutu given to her by Aunt Liz and Uncle Simon. She loves to play dress up in it and little does she know but for Halloween she will be a pretty little ballerina. As for the Sonia...well, she and I decided to go for a little run with the jogging stroller while Jose was home for the holiday and Nadia was sleeping. She was as excited as I was to get outside but in the end, sleep again got the best of her. I love the last photo of her sleeping in her high chair with her arms up.
