Pumpkin Pickin' and More!

It's October so that means time for a visit to the pumpkin patch! 
This year we went to a fairly new pumpkin patch in town and it was super fun! Definitely a must-do again. We were pleasantly surprised at how well Reese did. Sh isn't exactly a peach all of the time, but one thing she does like is being outside strolled around in a stroller. So this was a win-win day for her!

Before arriving at the pumpkin patch, we passed several cotton fields. Brian had a fond memory of stopping to pick cotton with his dad so we decided to detour for a few minutes.

On Friday as we planned the weekend and tried to decide when to go, we thought Sunday around 10:00am  would be best. We figured people would be in church and we'd miss the crowd. Well, apparently, Tucsonans aren't church-goers. We easily waited 30 minutes to get in.

Once inside we were shocked at how many things there were for the kids to do. 
We could have skipped the actual pumpkin picking and been a-okay.

She was itching to get out and play with the big kids.

Waiting for the pig race... yes, pigs race. and they're fast!

Reese reached right in to pet the cow.

It was a great day at the pumpkin patch!

11 Months

Yikes! In less than a month Reese will be one! That is craziness. Ami mentioned how fast that year went and I said, "Hmm. Very fast and yet so very slow all at the same time." Yes, it seems like just yesterday that I was pregnant, but on the other hand, it seems like an eternity. It's been a weird year.

Reese has come such a long way since her days in the NICU, I hardly recognize her in her baby pictures. She is a real, live, moving, babbling, mischievous, stubborn, temperamental, funny baby.

Good thing she's cute!

Weight: 20.04 lbs

Physical: She's crawling! She is also a stander. She loves to pull herself up on anything she can. She is finally walking across the couch or coffee table. She can even go from one to the other. I've even seen her stand without holding onto anything for up to 10 seconds!

Language: She's a talker like her brother! When she is in the mood she babbles like no other.

Don't let this sweet face fool you...

Lots of chompers! 6 to be exact

Yowzer! She's a feisty one that Reese! 

And oh so funny too. 

First dental appoitment. 

She's the boss around here. She kicked Jaxon out of his own chair.

Who me?
