SmeLLs like FaLL*

Fall is my favorite season. I love the changing leaves, cool mornings and the mess that the leaves make all over the streets. However, we've been having crazy hot weather the last couple of weeks so it doesn't feel like fall at all! It just starting to look like it. We spent the weekend at a Wine festival in Palisade with some friends and it was a really great way to wrap up the summer.

At the beginning of summer Vito bought a boat and we've been taking it out almost weekly.. it's the coolest boat ever! Super vintage and retro and we love it. V has had a fun time working on it and I've really enjoyed having little picnics on the water. We've probably only got a few more weeks of warm weather to enjoy until we wrap it up for the winter.

My parents came into town for a week at the beginning of the month and we had a really nice time with them. Dinners outside, a fun Rockies game and their help with some projects around the house. It was nice. They also came with us to our ultrasound while they were here... we're having a BOY! We're excited. I'm 20 weeks pregnant this week and can't believe I'm already half way through this... it's going really fast. My belly feels like it's growing by the day, it's such a strange feeling. This picture was from a couple of weeks ago.. This week my book says that the baby is 6 inches long (from head to rump) and weighs 10 oz.
Thanks for reading!

This is how a conversation went yesterday with a 5th grade student in my class.

girl: "who's your baby's daddy?"
me: "my husband."
girl: "are you sure?"
me: "pretty sure."
girl: "If I were you...I'd go on Maury to be sure... you never know if he could be cheating on you..."

I was dying... so funny.
