Pumpkin Patch Fun

We made our annual trip to Bo Brook Farm Pumpkin Patch yesterday!  Last year was really sweet, but Shelby was 9 months old so we just kind of stuck her in front of the pumpkins for pictures.  She wasn't able to really know what was going on around her.  This year, oh my goodness, did she have fun!  Here are some pictures from the afternoon.

Riding with Weston in the wagon

Sprinting to the giant hay pyramid

Climbing like a big girl to the tippy top!

I'm amazed by her bravery

Climbing down by herself too!

Checking out the chickens

If there's an animal, she wants to pet it.  She comes by it honest.

Whatever Dylan and Caleb do, she has to do too!

Riding on daddy's shoulders!

That face.  I die.

Monkey see, monkey do.

Showing off for daddy

Dylan is so sweet and patient with her!

We let her run as far as she wanted to... until we stopped her.  No telling where she would've finally stopped!

And the corn pit...

Can you see that smile?

We did this for about 30 minutes.  She only tried to eat it twice!
 And now my heart will explode from my chest.  Check out the difference a year makes:

Scarecrows!  They don't scare me!  I wanna kiss 'em!
This was the best one I got of the 4 kiddos!

We had a blast with our friends- as we always do!  I am so grateful for this time of year.  Lots of precious memories with friends and family!

Shelby 20 Months Post

    Oh Shelby.  I never add all of the pictures I get of you when I take these each month but I thought I would show off your silly personality.  I went back and read your 19 month post and truly everything is pretty similar.  No new huge milestones this month.  You have one new tooth up top left- a molar.  You also have just figured out eating really well.  I know this sounds silly since you will be 2 soon but, you will just eat what mommy gives you now and you haven't done that until this month.
    Since there aren't many big changes to share, I will just share our average day.  I try to get us out of the house in the mornings.  On Mondays we go to Pre School Bible story time at church.  On Tuesdays we go to the library and do Mother Goose Story time- you absolutely love this.  On Wednesdays we usually meet with friends and play.  Nothing regular on Fridays, but we usually find something!  On Thursdays mommy has Bible study at church and you go with me and play with your friends.  We eat lunch around 11 and you nap at 12 pretty much on the dot daily.  You sleep for about 2 hours.  Then we are up and eating snack and we either go to the park or play outside.  You love to run around and it's so good for you.  We then eat supper, you take a bath, and then we read and play before Bible and Prayers and bed.  Some days are slow and they drag.  Some days go by so fast.  Sometimes, when we are coming home from our morning time playing, you will fall asleep in the truck.  Then, mommy gets to carry you in and rock you while you sleep for a few minutes.  This time and the rare times you wake up in the middle of the night are the only times you are still with me.  My heart is so happy during these special moments.  I just hold you and pray for you and soak in the moment of how proud I am to be your mommy.

I love you so much my Shelby June!
