Calvin basically slept through all of Halloween, but Annie had such a good time.  We got to meet a few more of our neighbors and play with some friends and get candy...what's not to love about that!  
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

october.
we went to Chris and Kayla's wedding in Orangeville and were able to see alot of friends there.  
we visited the market, parks, and went for runs with our new double jogger.
annie moved to a big-girl bed and still doesn't realize that she can get out of it. ;)
we celebrated Canadian-Thanksgiving.
a couple of words that annie pronounces cute, that i know she will grow out of and i don't want to forget: 
Jeremy (our neighbor)= Gewy
milk=wop
something to drink= gee-some
pacifier=fire
family=famy
ballerina=nina
Luke (another neighbor)=Yuke
cheese=kes
apple=apo
and so many more cute ones that i can't think of right now. 
well, that's the end of another month.

baptism

Our children belong to Christ.  They are baptized in the name of the Triune God.  They are part of His covenant community.  
"For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself." -Acts 2:39

(here is an article about why Christians have historically baptized the infants of believing parents as well as believing adults,  for anyone curious!)

september was so good and went by so fast.  my dad came to visit, we did lots with our church (even became official members!!), walked in gatineau park, drank plenty of pumpkin lattes, and still going lots to the park and market.  and i also feel like we are out of the newborn "baby fog"...you know what i mean?  those first few weeks of life feel a bit hazy...haha.  but i feel like i'm getting the hang of having 2 babies.  the grocery store isn't scary anymore.  and sleep is going pretty well.  we are just loving having calvin around.  at 6 weeks he weighed 10lbs 11oz and is doing great.  
and annie--what a sweetie and her words are just exploding!  quoting lots from books, reciting parts of prayers and songs and even a bit of the catechism we have been learning since she was born!  
september, you've been lovely.
