Pumpkin Picking Farm

We headed out to a local farm that has animals and a tractor ride, a little maze, some bubbles and a pumpkin patch. P seems so shy when we take her places she has never been. It takes her a while to warm up to any place.

Styling in the wagon:

Oh, goats! Even though we went in to pet them (along with other animals) she didn't want to touch them. :)

Close up in the hay on the tractor ride:

Walking through the maze (she loved the flowers)

Lots of pumpkins:

This is the one I picked:

It is so funny that she doesn't smile in new places. We thought for sure she would be excited to see the animals since she loves looking at books and points out the cow and goat and horse and chickens and everything. She is very go with the flow though and while hesitant she still just follows along with what we are doing. But get her in an environment she knows, like at home or at the playground and she is smiles galore. Last night she was miss chatterbox too and actually said dada and mama correctly and attempted kitty. We are making progress. :)

Back to the Beach

We headed to the beach for a few days and we had perfect weather. Highs in the low 80's and sunny, it was beautiful. P had tons of fun!

Claire and P riding the bike:
Loved being in the sand:

Walking around with dada:

Played in the tidal pools and had lots of fun:

She thought it was fun to have the waves crash into her:

I love the beach:

Family photo:

In brief other news: She had her 15 month check up and is in the 90th percentile for height and in the 50th percentile for weight. She seems to be interested in trying to talk a little and can repeat some sounds pretty well or she tries. Typically her response to anything is "dah".

Fun on the farm

Little P turns 15 months old today. The words are coming very slow, but she seems to be making progress with mama and dada and doing them correctly along with trying to say other words and sounds. She still loves reading books and we sometimes read about 10-15 a night which hanging out. She has become more picky with foods and gets a bit crazy at the table when she doesn't want what is on her plate. She has started to figure out the spoon pretty well and the fork is slow, doesn't quite understand the stabbing part. She also has decided that all her teeth should come in now so we have the top and bottom molars working their way through (which leaves us with cranky P).

We headed to a fall farm last weekend with some friends. I didn't have my camera, so thanks to them, they took some cute pictures of P!

Crawling through the tunnel:

Wanted to ride again: (looks like she had more fun with him!)

We went to Charlotte the other weekend to visit some friends of ours. We had a good time.

Claire teaching Piper about acorns....promptly followed by P then wanting to eat the acorns:

We headed to the playground at the park and they both enjoyed running around:

Then we had a battle of who could make it down the slide first (they both seem super excited here)

Then we tried out a helicopter carnival ride. After putting them both in the ride, EZ pumped them up with a few high fives:

And they were they went around, we kept saying "yeah" and clap your hands, so of course they did...
