Life Is Crazy

Things never seem to turn out the way you would expect them two.  Two yeas ago I made a post announcing that O's dad and I would be going our separate ways, but would continue to work as a team to raise our son.  That was something that we managed to do very well, and things don't always turn out the way that you expect them to.  A couple weeks ago, O and I moved 80 miles away from the only home that he had ever known in order to move back in with his daddy and become a completed family once again.  It's a bit of a complicated story, but ultimately I think we are all back to where we should be.  Things happen for a reason, and living apart allowed us all to realize what is most important to us.  It was an interesting two years, and I think we both grew and learned a lot about ourselves and each other.  I'm incredibly proud that even during those times we were able to work together as a team for our son because that's what really matters.  I know it's strange for some people, but this is what works for my family.  I'm happy to be united together again.

Well the last few months have been crazy eventful and all that jazz.  Orion is growing up so fast.  He is learning to write his name.   He will be starting a new school after Thanksgiving, which is exciting but also kind of sad since he's been the same place since he was 6 weeks old.  Overall, he is very happy, healthy, and so much fun.  Here is a peek at some of his adventures over the last couple months: 

We became members of the forest in Omaha and they have a Dinosaur walk.  He thought it was fantastic.

We messed around with dress-up and hats pretty frequently.  It's more fun than it should be. 

Orion has developed a love for going down town, especially visiting the river where he can see the geese and take pictures of them.  

He also enjoys going to brunch with his daddy...

 And hanging out at his favorite book store.

Aunt Jaime moved to town, so he's gotten to spend a lot of quality time with her.  He seems to like having her around and I know I am super glad she's here! 

We went to a wedding and Orion picked this outfit out for himself.  He's such a handsome young boy.  Minutes after this picture was taken he went to play with a dog and was covered in mud for the rest of the day. 

We also got the chance to go see Bill Nye the Science Guy!  Orion thought some of the stuff they did was awesome....mommy was also pretty impressed.

More giggles with Jaime...

We took him to the pumpkin patch to pick out his very own pumpkin. 

Orion and daddy rode a trike together.

He loved climbing the hay and jumping off of it. 

We took a hayrack right to the pumpkin patch

And Orion helped carve his very own pumpkin.

He also helped daddy style his hair.

For Halloween he decided to play super-hero again and was rocking Batman. 

So far it has been a beautiful, happy, eventful fall.  Life is good, changing, evolving, growing, and so full of joy.  It's November already, which is hard to believe.   Overall, things are going fantastically, Orion is growing, healthy, and most definitely happy.  There are very few things that I could ask for to make things any better!
