Savoring Fall at the Pumpkin Patch

Fall is my favorite time of year!  We get a change in the seasons and weather, we can pull out the sweaters and Ugg boots (yay!), drink seasonal hot coffee drinks, look forward to being with family and friends at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years, and Fall is when I celebrate my birthday.  Now that my baby boy is having new experiences every day it makes me see little things, like a trip to the pumpkin patch, with a new perspective and with a little more excitement and awe. He is 6 months old now and sitting up like a champ.  When I plopped him down on the hay covered ground, I didn't expect the straw to go right into his mouth... but of course it did since that's how he's learning about the world around him right now.  The straw was a big hit for him, but so were the new animals.  We got to pet some sheep, goats, and even a lama. He was very wide-eyed through the whole experience.  I love seeing him play with his daddy; and Brandon is the best daddy that there is.

Walking to our car together, my baby snuggled up in his daddy's arms and my hand holding my husband's, my heart was full and I felt content.  I am truly grateful for my family and sharing all of our "firsts" together as a family.
