Pumpkin Patch

Today we headed out to the Pumpkin Patch in Yucaipa, and had a lot of fun. Most of the time when we go it is during the week, and there are many more activities during the weekend. Liam loved looking at all the different pumpkins and wanted to take pictures of them all. He rode the ponies and fed some very aggressive goats, we took our pictures, and picked out some great pumpkins. We were glad we went early in the morning because it was really getting warm! I am so excited that fall is here. I love this time of the year!

10 Months!

Brendan is 10 months old now, and I just realized that I never posted his 9 month check up stats!
Weight: 20.11 lbs.
Length: 27" (he grew 6" from 6 months to 9 months!)
He is in the 50% for everything!

 I know for a fact that he has gotten bigger and taller in just the last month! This kid is getting heavy fast. He has his third tooth coming through the bottom. None on top yet. He loves to play on the floor and be free. He pulls himself up on anything he could possibly think of and we've even caught him letting go of whatever he is standing next to and just sort of standing there for just a bit. We have nicknamed Brendan the Whining Tornado. We call him tornado because when he is in his walker he is a hazard to not only the house, but mostly our feet. This kid books it in the walker and runs over our feet at any chance he gets. He also whines quite a bit unless he is on the floor playing. He will run around in his walker with his hands thrown up in the air and will whine until he gets taken out of the walker.

He loves saying "Dada," and we will hear him just sitting around playing saying Dada. We are working on Momma. Right now it is just "mmmmmmmmmm." The one thing that I wish could change more than anything is that Brendan does not sleep through the night! He wakes up 2-4 times a night. It is getting so hard to keep dealing with the little amount of sleep that I've been getting. Luckily he goes right back to sleep afterwards, but it is I who is having the hard time going back to sleep. Hopefully the routine will change soon!

We are excited to be planning a first birthday party, but cannot believe that it is almost here!


(sorry for more bath pictures, but this is only place Brendan sits still)

Mini Golf Date

Today Liam and I went on a date, and we decided to go miniature golfing. We haven't taken Liam mini golfing yet, and we had a coupon for a free kid's gold at Fiesta Village, so off we went. I have been trying to have little dates with Liam every couple of weeks so we can have some quality time by ourselves! We had a lot of fun, but it was really hot. We only go through one of the courses and by the 10th hole, Liam was so sweaty and he was starting to loose interest. Next time we go, I think we'll go in the evening when it is cooler and all the lights are on. For this being Liam's first time mini golfing, he did pretty good. His first hole was a hole-in-one!
