I figure the only way to do a blog this month is to title it for the month and sum it all up in one quick blog. October has been very busy for us. With Baker in school and speech therapy it really feels like our time to do things as a family is cut in half. We go to bed early to make up for the early mornings, mommy is still trying to get use to, so it feels like we do less with friends as well. We did squeeze in time this month to do some of our favorite October traditions though. The month started off with a trip to the corn maze. We went with our good friends the Gisi's and enjoyed the maze for the first 30 minutes and then we were all tired and more then happy to find a group of people getting led out. We followed the pack and were out of there in no time. After the maze we decided to shoot corn out of cannons. This ended up being the highlight of the afternoon for both the kids and the dads. I'm pretty sure Baker got the closest to the target. Another fun activity we do as a family in October is the Pumpkin Patch at Klickers. This was Brooklyn's first year and she loved riding in the wagon with her big brother. Baker picked out pumpkins for each person in the family including Emiliano his cousin. So with 5 perfect pumpkins we called it a day. We decided not to carve the pumpkins this year since we will be leaving for Hawaii the last week of October anyway. Baker is happy with them all lined up perfectly on our porch. Today he decided to take the pumpkin he named "Brooklyn" to school for show and tell. He has become some what pumpkin crazy.
Brooklyn also turned 9 months on the 15th. Were did the time go? I know I say that every month but she really has turned into a little girl out of no where. She is moving around like crazy. Crawling on her hands and knees, walking around the furniture and even trying to take a step or two. She follows her brother everywhere and he seems to enjoy her at this point. I love the interaction between the two of them. He sometimes gets to rough but she holds her own for a little girl. She is just a shorty like her mom. She goes to the Dr. in 2 days and I cant wait to see her stats. She is waving good bye and saying Dadda and Momma every once in a while. She loves people just not holding her. She has become a mama's girl and if mommy's in the room then that's who she would prefer to be holding her. I have to admit it feels good to be loved. She is as sweet as candy and has a temper as hot as fire and we love her so much!
