Life continues to be all about baby which is delightful and we still think he is the greatest thing to ever happen. And as we move into the fall and are approaching the holidays it is so fun to realize we are in the midst of so many firsts! Aside from all of the baby milestones we’re watching and waiting for, there are also all of the other firsts of life like….first trip to the pumpkin patch!
Does the three and a half month old care about the pumpkin patch or even know what a pumpkin is? Absolutely not. Did we still think it was the cutest thing ever to take him and take his picture and let him “pick” a pumpkin? Absolutely yes. Everything feels so much more fun and festive with a little one, even if they aren’t quite in tune with that excitement themselves.
His little personality shines through a bit more everyday and when I tell you that I literally want to melt into a puddle when he smiles at us or laughs, that feels like an understatement.
Him and I have settled into a bit of a routine with our weeks which has been great for me to feel some semblance of a schedule start to appear. Most weeks we do our grocery order on Mondays and then have one morning where we walk with some other moms and their littles and we also usually manage to make it to bible study each week where he is mostly an excellent (ideally sleeping) participant. The rest of our days are filled with early morning coffee while he plays on his mat, naps, a LOT of time on our porch looking at the sky, more naps and then some snuggles with daddy once he’s home before bath and bed.

Hubby and I have found a church home we enjoy so there are a couple evenings a week we’re able to spend with our community group and Sunday morning church where unlike bible study, the little man tends to not be such an excellent participant but we’re working on it!
And in the middle of all of that, I try to keep up with the house (try being the operative word), and do some blogging. Which if you didn’t know, aside from my own personal blog here, I am also doing some blogging for Caden Lane which has been a super fun creative outlet for me as I transitioned to a stay at home mom.
Sometimes the days are long (and some of the nights even longer lol) but they’re so gloriously full of “the little things” that I know these are the days I’ll look back on and wonder at how they went so fast.
