an autumn walk is the thing. today tristan and i stepped out into the wind and onto the turf. flowers, leaves, fungi and fabulous mountain views were the thing. i don't think the baby has ever had quite the sensation of wind hitting his face that he did today. it was exciting, but a little too much after a while. so we scooted back home for an afternoon nap. it's been a day of normal naps and an early bedtime for the baby. sleep is the thing, and a very good thing at that. goodnight!
