Miranda in her favorite sweater of the season (from le•top's 2009 Fall Kaleidescope Collection).

The first day of fall for 2009 (in the Northern Hemisphere) was September 22nd.  Ever since Miranda learned that little nugget of information in Kindergarten, she has constantly asked me (every day since September 22), “Is it Fall yet? Why is it so hot?” All I could say was, “Yes, it’s fall but it still feels like summer. I guess the sun is just having too much fun to cool things down.” I don’t know why she has been so persistent. Was she excited about Halloween? Going to the pumpkin patch? I don’t know.

 On the first day when the weather looked cloudy and cold, she asked me again, “Is it fall yet, Mommy?”

“Yes, it looks like it.”

“Yay! I can wear my favorite sweater!”

It figures. It would be fashion-related coming from my little girl. (sigh!)

Sit. Roll over. Stand up…

Sounds like tricks you teach a dog, but they’re actually milestones for my 5-month old son, Paulo. If I put him in a sitting position, he can stay seated for maybe 3-4 seconds before he tips over. He definitely can roll over—and over and over—making his way from one corner of the room to the door jamb where he usually “whimpers” for some assistance because his foot got stuck along the way. He’s got a ways to go before he can stand up, but Big Sister Miranda is there to lend a helping hand.

I never imagined that my 5-year old and my 5-month old would play together happily, but here they are enjoying each other’s company, being each other’s best friend.

Paulo is wearing a coverall from le•top’s 2009 Fall/Winter collection, A Dog’s Life. Miranda is wearing a dress from le•top’s 2009 Early Fall collection, Vive Les Fleurs!

Wow…do we have great friends at Reverie Baby!  This is the second season that our dear friends let us orchestrate a “mini” le•top baby photo shoot at their store! Reverie Baby in Santa Rosa, CA, has been amazingly accommodating; allowing us to set up little mini vignettes around their beautifully merchandized store to photograph samples from the new Fall 2009 le•top baby collection.

Marykate Fleming (our le•top baby head designer) and I staged “sets” by moving around racks and furniture all day long to get our shots. The new owner Nancy Dupont, in the process of taking over ownership of the store from our old friend Arnie Levine, was having quite a busy day. In spite of the fact that they had customers to attend to, Nancy and her crew made us feel very welcome! So, to the whole Reverie Baby family – Nancy Dupont, Arnie Levine, Dana Chappell, and Pam DuPertuis – we say “Thank You!!!”

Those Yellow Turtle gals love our Father’s Day Mini-Me Contest! So, the ever-so-famous MS bike tour presents a related story! Look at the photo below (yes, taken after a looong ride!)…who is the Mini??? The Father or the Son??? The Mini-Me caption really got J.’s attention – apparently it is a joke in her family because, well, Alec is now bigger than his Dad (Bob) – which is why J. asks the question: Which one is the Mini? Is this a trick question, J.? 😉 Tell us, who do you think is the “Mini”?

Meanwhile if you know a dad with a Mini-Me of his own, enter our easy contest for a chance to win an exclusive, “sneak peek” $100 prize of our gorgeous and much anticipated le•top Fall 09 Collection! Just send us a photo of a Dad and his Mini-Me (look-alike), and his Mini-Me gets the fabulous threads! Contest ends on the 19th with a winner announcement.

It's Dad and his Mini-Me...or is it Alex and his Mini-Me...?!?

Look! It's a Dad and his Mini-Me...or is it a Son and his Mini-Me...?!?
