~Winston loves to drive his car over to the table where his Daddy's uniform is laying and kiss and tug on it :)

Happy weekend to all! I am glad I was able to keep my promise about updating again before the week was over! I am keeping that promise by about thirty minuets lol!

We have begun our weekend with another cookout! Now that Benjamin has his nice grill, he has been enthusiastically cooking on the weekends! I don't mind! He has always been a great cook. 
And our meal tonight was just amazing. 
I picked up some flank steak and then he cooked it on the grill as well as some yummy pitas. I cut up an avacado some fresh basil, melted some butter and added lime juice to it, sliced some goat cheese and then we combined it all. 
It was oh-so-good! I wish I had come up with it myself! :D

I took a walk today with the baby and the weather was sooo nice! I made myself a cup of coffee and baby and I strolled around our wee little neighborhood enjoying the breeze and the change of the season. 
I plopped Winston and I on the grass with our beautiful little scenic lake background and went to snap a picture, but found that the battery had died lol! :)
Winston is now eight months old! He has two bottom teeth and is working on his two upper ones. He has been a pretty nice teether so far. The biggest issue with the teething is sensitivity when he sleeps. His naps have been very short. 

One of the things he loves to do lately is eat through the night! Last night I fed him four times lol! 

Chasing the cats with his car has become great fun for him. The cats think its pretty fun too ;) Bay will lay in the middle of the room and Winston will push his car against him. Bay will just remain where he is while Winston keeps pushing. Eventually Bay will get up and sit in the windowsill and Winston will sit in his car and watch him. Winston has become the cat and Bay the mouse! 

I am glad I am finally updating my little space here! Where did September go? I can't believe it is already almost the middle of October!
It is almost midnight and I could easily just keep prattling on, but I know I will be up frequently the next coming hours ;)

I hope you all have a very blessed and peaceful weekend! 
Much love!

What a great post! You covered all the "bases". Food, baby, Benjamin, outdoors, the "wild-life" in your home. :-D
LOVED reading the part where Winston is the cat, and the cat has become the mouse. :-D Made me smile thinking of Winston stalking the cat. :-) hahaha
You have a GREAT attitude about being up in the middle of the night to feed your teether. You are a great mom!!!

Love you!

What a lovely update. I love to hear everyone's news about what they've been up to. It's almost like sitting down for a wee cup of tea and a chat together!

Danielle you are so sweet! I need to cover the bases more often because too often they fly by and I never capture them! Thank you for your sweet comment about my attitude! I have you to thank for that one. You always seem to have a beautiful attitude and I glean from you!

Kirsteen, I know! I am learning to be a little more open and specific! :D It is like sitting and having a cup of tea together! I always feel like I am in your presence when I am visiting your blog and I always leave feeling refreshed like we just had a lovely conversation! :D

Elizabeth, I love the up-date. I agree with Kirsteen, it makes me feel like we are having a "wee" cup of tea and a chat together. And as Danielle said, I loved reading about Winston and the cat, and love how you tell it.
Love you so much,

Dear Elizabeth, I have been longing to see and hear about little Winston. He is getting big so fast. Your days sound busy yet a sense of leisure. Danny and I are going to the Springs to shop at the junk stores and look for treasures. Miss you and tell your hubby Hi. Love Roxy
