The Corn Maize

After getting our pumpkins, we went through the big corn maze. The kids loved sticking their heads through the holes for the camera.

What a tired boy. We had such a great day! Pumpkins, mazes, and friends. Who could ask for more.
Happy Halloween!

Gettin' Our Pumpkins

Conor and Addy riding with their pint sized pumpkins.

Daddy picked out a big pumpkin. Conor picked out a crook-neck squash.

Look at all the lil punkins!

The Big Tunnel

At the pumpkin patch, there was this big tunnel through the haystack. We never thought Conor would want to go through it, but as usual, he surprised us!

Almost there!

The Pumpkin Patch at Sauvie Island

Conor had his first trip to the pumpkin patch this weekend! We went with Buggy (Kristen), Uncle KEenan and my friend Niki and her two kids. Conor really loved Addison.

Our little man on the haystack. Can you believe how big he is getting?

Conor says, " I love you Addison".

Yummy. Part Two

This is Conor having his first taste of Mac and Cheese. Also, note the banana right along side. Yum!

Yummy. Part One

Conor loves to eat! He's recently decided that he is a big boy and refuses to let us feed him anymore. So, now he gets pretty much whatever we eat. Because he isn't a pro at hand/eye coordination, Tucker eats a lot of what we eat as well. These were taken Friday night. He had a turkey, ham, roast beef sandwhich with cheese and tomates. Just like his mama, he likes the bread the most!

Up, up and away!

Conor has done it! He is crawling. He has been rocking back and forth on all fours for several weeks now and had made a few movements forward but he hadn't quite figured it out. Then one day, I was in the kitchen and all of a sudden a little head poked around the corner. What a grin he had on his face! He's pretty cute as he inches his way across the house. He looks like a little caterpillar.

As you know, I went back to school and Conor started day care. Of course, I cried when I dropped him off that first day. I kept thinking, a good mom wouldn't drop her baby off. But he loves it! Julia is wonderful and Conor has so much fun. On tuesdays they all walk down to the indoor gym where the big kids can ride bikes and the little kids can roll around and play. Apparently, the little kid area just wasn't cutting it for Conor so Julia put him in a walker and he crusied with the big kids. He's going to be off and running before we even know it.

Still no teeth! He doesn't let that stop him though and has moved quite easily onto bite sized food. He loves to feed himself, despite the fact that he gets more in his lap than in his mouth!
