Picking Our First Pumpkin

This past weekend I decided to take the Peanut on a trip to the farm to pick his first pumpkin.  It was a beautiful day out and the neighbours had decided that they wanted to come pick a pumpkin too.  Normally, Halloween is totally not my thing.  I don't enjoy dressing up or trick or treating or anything else that goes along with it, but this year is different....this year I start making traditions I hope to carry on.

Anyways...we all headed out to the farm down the street to start our pumpkin picking adventure.  It wasn't a very eventful pumpkin picking trip, but it was fun none the less.  We took all of the children over to look at the goats and geese and sat the children down for pictures in the rows of pumpkins located at the front of the farm.  I got a few really cute ones of Cole sitting with the pumpkins...

After taking pictures we went on a wagon ride to the pumpkin field and picked our own pumpkins and then headed home. It was fun and something I hope we get to do every year :)

7 Month Update

Age: 7 months
Date of Appt.: October 9th, 2012
Weight: 19lbs 2oz
Height:  28.5inches
Sleeping Patterns: The only thing that has changed is that you are dropping your second nap.  You've been fighting your naps for a couple of weeks now so I've decided to skip the morning nap and to just put you down around lunch time.  It seems to be working out for us :)
Eating Patterns: you are still eating 4 bottles a day, for a total of at minimum 24oz/day.  You eat pretty much everything.  We do a breakfast, lunch and dinner and you usually snack in between if we are out.  Our big thing this month was trying eggs for the first time!  Next weekend we move on to peanut butter.
Anything You'd Like to Add?:  You crawl everywhere and are always getting in to things you shouldn't be, but that is typical of a baby exploring his environment!  Shortly after you learned to crawl you also started pulling yourself up on everything.  I'm sure it's only a matter of time before you take your first steps!
