A Most Festive Fall Season
Lots of fall activities, growth + learning with Langdon this month! A very complicated month – the good + the horrible…
Earlier in the month, Jeff, Langdon + I drove a half hour south from Vancouver to Ladner to visit Westham Island Herb Farm for first pumpkin patch time! We strolled among the rows of produce + flowers. It was a bitingly cooooold day + I obsessively wrapped Langdon up in blankets. A very serious father son portrait.
I had this romantic image in my head that we were going to take tons of pictures, plop Langdon down in the dirt surrounded by big, fat, rotund pumpkins + we were all going to laugh + sing + dance. But nay…Lang Lang was in a crap crappy mood, it was freaking cold + he was having none of it. I somehow managed to get a smile!
This little mule was sweet + tiny + he was enamored with Langdon. Another smile! Win!!! Do you like Langdon’s beanie? Sorry – if you’re a Canuck I meant to say, do you like Langdon’s toque? I made it out of this slippery bamboo fabric + it fits him like a do rag!!! Biggie Smalls!
That night we went to my brother-in-law + sis-in-law’s for Canadian Thanksgiving dinner! They always host a great feast! Did you know Canadian Thanksgiving is in October?! Weird, right?!?! I’ll NEVER get used to it! NEVER I TELL YOU!!!!! I don’t recall, but according to this photographic evidence, Tom is telling me a funny story to which cousin Neil also enjoys…but I appear shocked/scared/aghast. Why? I wish I could remember! Haha! Langdon is busy looking at my plate thinking, “Num num nummy…me want big people foooood!”!
Having play dates with his girlfriend Madison. She’s also a little hapa. Isn’t she adorable?! They are so presh together. One minute they’re holding hands, the next minute trying to poke each other’s eyes out. Aaaaah, the perfect relationship.
Truly a hot mess. Ladies who have babies that haven’t started teething yet – ENJOY YOUR BABIES NOW!!!! Once those sharp little razors start ripping their way through your poor baby’s gums, they will become psychopathic strangers + you’ll wonder who took your baby + where they went!!! Langdon was making all sorts of weird, smushy faces, waving his arms around like a windmill, spitting + screaming + saying things like, “PFFFFBBBTT!!!! BBBBLLLLBBB!!!”.
So many things happened this month. I will be quite honest, I became pretty depressed + cried a whole bunch. I miss my family + friends in Los Angeles, the rainy gloom started again in Vancouver + the teething, sick cranky baby was draining for me when Jeff’s at work 16 hours a day five days a week. But Mr. Langdon now has two little teeth + is much jollier + get ready for it……I BECAME A PERMANENT RESIDENT!!! I CAN NOW LEAVE THE COUNTRY + GO TO LOS ANGELES!!!! Therefore, I’ve been feeling much better the past couple weeks! More on my permanent residency later!!! I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE EVERYONE IN L.A. SOON!!!!! XOXO!!!
