We are over at now. Come on over!

You know when you get those Facebook "on this day" posts with a photo of what you were doing a year ago and you just want to ugly cry! The most recent one was a photo I posted of Penny this time last year. You can find the post here. I've been spending a lot of time with little miss Penny in the house since the weather has been pretty crappy. Autumn in Turkey is basically cold and rainy. I guess winter is exactly like that too.

Anyway, on this day we cuddled because it was chilly. I gave her a million kisses because I can. :) We tried to do some ABC's but she wasn't into it today. She twirled like a ballerina, as she's been doing a lot lately. I was in her way while we were walking and she very politely said, "excuse me, man." She recently fell on her mouth and is now sporting a very grey tooth. Childhood at its best, I guess.

November came and we busted out the winter coats, which was a super fun addition to our mornings. Aren't seasons grand? :)

Anyway, I'm busting out the Christmas decorations because it's basically Christmas! :)

First, this girl lost her two bottom teeth in the span of a week. She started first grade here in Turkey, like the little trooper she is. Yesterday she told us with a lot of confidence, that she is really smart since she will soon start reading and writing in turkish. 
Commence sobbing. 
She continues to surprise me with her spirit and willingness to learn and grow. 
I know parents all over the world are always yapping about their kids growing, but those few moments when you see it right before your very eyes, it's a beautiful sight to behold. 
Also this little stinker. :) 
My baby. 
No, she is NOT potty trained. 
No, she is NOT going to school, yet. 
We are NOT recognizing, at all, that she knows all her ABC's and numbers and that she can recognize what a trapezoid looks like. Nope. She is not growing. Not one bit. 

As you can probably tell, I'm having a moment. 
Also, it's raining and it's 62 degrees out and I have the heat on. 

Autumn is here!
