Fall has officially arrived in WA and I couldn’t be happier seeing the change of color in nature, earlier sunsets, and cozying up to our fireplace during the evenings. We’ve been told how lucky we are (on numerous occasions) with the sunny weather lasting so long, and I’m sure not complaining!
I used to be really good at tracking Deacon’s life by taking monthly pictures and writing a short recap of his growth, achievements, and any notable moments in his life. I had good intentions of continuing this tradition after he turned 1, but here we are at 21 months without an update the last nine months. It’s hard to believe that in just a few months we’ll be celebrating his 2nd birthday in Seattle! Thankfully our transition has been relatively smooth, but one thing we do miss is seeing my parents (Deacon’s grandparents). We’re hoping to visit them over the holidays and would love Deacon to experience Texas, where I spent the first eight years of my childhood.
Deacon has been experiencing many new adventures since our move to the PNW. If you’d like to follow our personal IG account @deaconsadventures, you can get a glimpse of what our lives are like up here! We got to celebrate a couple birthdays and visit the Pumpkin Patch as The Well’s staff outing. Deacon has been showing a lot of interest in books, bringing his favorites and asking us to read them on repeat at least two to three times. He’s also learning new words like “baby,” “leaf,” “tree,” “fish,” and “truck” as well as showing his love for pretty girls by giving them bbobbos aka kisses. Here are some pretty photos courtesy of our friend Sako Pak!
I love my little family of three and am so grateful for each day spent with them! We’ll be making a few trips down to CA to wrap up a few weddings I have left so stay tuned for more pretty coming your way!
