While it’s a pain in the butt, Luke shines in moments like this and is relishing his ability to provide for us in this way. I’m quite happy that he likes doing it too. Here’s a screen shot of what the weather is supposed to be like tonight. Perfect timing for heater troubles.
Thankfully we have an amazing wood burning stove that heats our house front to back. With some amazing planning, Luke got it together last month to chop all the wood we’ve had laying around, stack it on pallets and cover it. We now have plenty of fuel to burn. It’s times like these that I’m really glad we have a small house. Time to pioneer-up!
It’s also been really windy the last few days, which has made taking Porter for walks a little difficult. He’s got his warm clothes, but when the wind gusted all of the leaves flew right into his face. Luckily, we were gifted an amazing stroller by our friends Chelsea and Shaun. It’s perfectly suited for walking in the elements, something Porter and I plan on doing a lot this winter.
I’m glad I had a newborn last winter and got all my fretting out then. Is he warm enough? Too warm? Sun in his eye’s? Every square inch of skin covered? Okay, so I’ll never really stop trying to keep him comfortable, but at least I’m not as neurotic as last January. This winter I know how to dress him for the cold and I’m excited, or at least ready, for the winter to hit. Cheers to staying warm!

he probably didn’t need all the layers and
the wind and leaves were kept at bay.
