September! Already!

How is it September already?  I mean, for realz.  I'm pretty sure it's still something like 2004 and I just graduated from college.  Oh well.  I guess time flies when you're having fun, right?

Life has been good to us lately.  Matt's feeling better (huzzah!), Sweet Baby Lady has been going to bed at 7:00ish every night and sleeping pretty much all night (double huzzah!), Charlie started talking (apparently, according to Cassie, he was waiting until he could say 3-syllable words like tortillas and dinosaur before he'd begin to speak) and doing somersaults, and my classes at school have been out of control awesome (and I'm all, "What is this, Dead Poet's Society or something?").  Since Darling Matilda's been going to bed at night, Matt and I have gotten to enjoy our evenings together like actual real adults, which is basically life-changing.  We've cooked dinners together and watched our stories on the TV and enjoyed the quiet.

The other super fun thing about life right now is that Charlie has gotten really into books.  Most kids have probably been into them all along, but our Charlie, from the ages of about 4 months until a few weeks ago, would see you reading a book, run over to you, snatch the book from you, scream, and throw it on the ground.  So this is a pretty big deal for his two English major parents.  It's all I can do not to spend all of our dollars on more books and more books and more books.  If you have any suggestions, do tell!  I'd love to hear them.

Anyway, right now I'm supposed to be taking a shower, but I'm not because there's lightning outside and I am afraid of electrocution and also because I'm a dirty procrastinator when it comes to showers.  Instead I'm watching Friday Night Lights and it's the one where Mrs. Coach sees Matt Saracen buying condoms and Coach gives him the scariest glare of all time in church and it's amazing.  So, yeah, life is pretty great.

Also, watermelon margaritas.  So really, really great.  Watermelon margaritas are about as life-changing as the baby going to bed.  Is it bad that I'm thinking of buying two whole watermelons and pureeing them and freezing the puree so that I can enjoy watermelon margaritas all through the winter.  Or is it BRILLIANT?

We Pinterested the eff out of these drinks, yo.

And, with that, I've got to tend to all of my Dillon friends and family and debate risking electrocution to scrub the grime off of my body.  I'll leave you with 2048586940202 pictures of Matilda and Charlie.  You'll note that there are more pictures of her than there are of him, which is because I use a manual lens and Charlie never stops moving--ever.  Add to that the fact that every time I pull out the real camera, he tries to snatch it from my hands and then screams if I don't let him, and we end up with very few good Charlie pictures.  We'll have to stick to video for that little buddy.  Either that, or you can buy me the lens I really want.  I mean, if you're really that bothered by the imbalance.

Happy week to you!

 Trying to smother baby sister.

 Charlie loves my childhood stuffed animal, Pato.  It makes me ridiculously happy to see them together.
