Tate did his first real somersault tonight. He was so excited!  He just had to wear my apron after supper.

Tate is in a hurry to grow up. He keeps telling me he wants to go to school. Tonight he was admiring Brett's whiskers and he touched his chin and said "I want whiskers there."  Give it time buddy!  He was a busy little kid today. He wanted to play with the nativity set. He also had Wilson join us for supper. I was hungry when I went grocery shopping and ended up with corn dogs, which is not something we ever eat. Tate wasn't a fan so Wilson got to eat that.

I did the ice bucket challenge for ALS today. Brett's grandma fought ALS and hopefully this raises a lot of money for research. Tate thought it was great and put water in the bucket for me to do it again!  I made apple butter today and if is so good!

Tate was sitting on the counter by the sink helping me clean up the kitchen. As I was running a sink full of soapy water he crawled right in to take a bath.  He was very contained so I was able to clean up my mess quickly without Tateemptying all   the cabinets.

Tate and I used the city baby pool one last time for the summer. Before we left town we picked some apples from my friend's tree. Tate thought it was just the best thing ever. Some of the branches were low enough that he could pick apples all by himself.

I caught up with a friend and got groceries this evening. Brett watched Tate. I think they had a good time without me.

The pool closes on Sunday so we went for a swim today. We had to go down the slide at the park before we went home. Tate refused to take off his puppy towel for bed. He got to wear it while we read but then it had to come off.
