The sunny day also highlighted the streaks on the living room windows, so Matt went to work, with an audience.

Getting inspiration from an animal book.
Becca also outdid herself with this amazing 6-tiered, chocolate and vanilla cake. Each slice barely fit on a plate! The talented Ms. Fox is contemplating baking her own wedding cake. If it comes out as well as this one, it may be the best option out there.

Matt and I planned a quick weekend jaunt to New Jersey to see the updates to the Woodards' house and spend some time with Aileen and Jack (Simone and John, too). Toby took advantage of this plan to throw a surprise baby shower. Her plans were all set. The one thing she did not count on, however, was the appearance of swine flu in Matt. Although Matt hadn't felt well the day before we were to leave, we dutifully awoke at 3:30 am for our 6am flight to JFK, got all showered, dressed and ready but Matt simply could not make it out of the house. After a phone call to Toby and Delta, we got back in bed, and spent the day quarantined from each other after a quick trip to the doctor. Poor Matt spent the next week bored silly stuck in the house.

My favorite baby knitting pattern definitely is not sized for this age. Maybe it will fit better when hats are more necessary - perhaps for Lauren's first trip to New Hampshire in December?
I can relate to Lauren's desire for frequent naps.

These photos are all from Sunday when I realized I hadn't taken any pics yet and the big adventure of the day was a trip to Target.
Here are Evan and Lauren in a common scene. Lauren looks adorable as always in Fall Outfit #1: Candy Corn
Evan went out to mow the lawn and Matt took over snuggle time, learning how to use the sling in the process. This was key, as I plan to use this sling and plan on Matt using it as well.
Lauren had some tummy time, now in Fall Outfit #2: Pumpkins. More important, however, is what Lauren did just after this photo! She raised herself up a little higher, let her head fall ever so slightly to the side and she rolled onto her back! I called Betsy over, placed Lauren on her tummy again and Lauren performed an encore rollover performance for Betsy's enjoyment. Triumph!
Family photo with matching pumpkins.
Finally, Lauren (and Betsy) changed into one more Fall Outfit after Candy Corn and Pumpkins found themselves retiring early to the laundry basket.
