Pumpkin Patch



We took the kids to the pumpkin patch today.  Carter came too, but fell asleep in the car on the way there so we didn't want to bug him.  I really wanted to get a pic of all of them together, but I'll just have to try and get some at home.

Mikey's first choice of pumpkin was a huge one that wouldn't even stand up.  That kid always goes for size and definitely not for shape or looks.  We talked him into a smaller one.  Jovie, on the other hand, will pick the smallest pumpkin that is practically impossible to carve.  It's funny to see how our kids have such different personalities.

Carter had an appointment with his Pediatrician yesterday.  Everything went well and was uneventful.  I think that the ped is finally on Team Carter.  He told me that he was shocked by how well Carter is doing and by how far he has come.  He said that he truly believed that Carter would surprise a lot of people in his life. We've always believed that, but it was cool to hear it from someone else.

We tried out some rice cereal today.  He took about a teaspoon which I thought was really good.  His goal is to get up to at least a tablespoon by February, so if he can keep it up we're on our way there!  I snapped this pic this afternoon.  I just love those cheeks!  He looks a lot like Mikey in this picture.  Actually, this was Mikey's outfit but he outgrew it when he was 3.5 months.  The pants still fall off of Carter all.the.time.
