Archive for October, 2007


Today we went to the pumpkin patch with Ben’s preschool. It was a damp day, so we didn’t stay all that long. But we did get a few pumpkins, which we will be carving, and we also got to feel hubbard squash to some very large cows. I think that was the hit of the day, really. Oh, well, that and the cute kittens that followed us around and climbed up people’s legs. 🙂

Apologies for the long delay

Again, we got busy. We moved house, we’re getting settled in, my parents came to visit and help with that settling in part (Thanks again, Granny and Granda, for all your help! 🙂 Ben still misses you.), we’ve had stuff to do for Ben’s preschool, we’ve been chasing a VERY mobile baby, and here we are, end of October, and I haven’t posted for a month and a half. Ack.

So, updates.

Ben is great. And very three. Heh. Sometimes we have issues, but mostly he’s fun and engaging once he’s warmed up. He’s got lots and lots of ideas. Last week, we were stumped for a dinner idea, so Ben decided for us. “Two cans of pinto beans…. one can of corn… maybe some pasta. And tomatoes.” And then he proceeded to get all the ingredients out, open the cans (with help, of course) and helped me make his dinner. It was good too — I just added a few spices and we had Mexican pasta sauce.
Timothy is getting more and more mobile. He can stand for long periods, cruise anywhere, climb the stairs if you blink…. He even took a couple of steps all on his own on Granny and Granda’s last night here. Then nothing for a week or more, but he was doing it again tonight. Two steps, on his own, then flop into my lap. He’s going to be walking soon, I’m sure. On the other end of the development spectrum, he’s still not eating much food. He makes the funniest face as soon as he gets anything on his tongue. We keep trying, but mostly he wears it or plays with it. Someday it will click, I’m sure. And he’s not exactly looking starved.

We’re loving the house. We spend a lot of time outdoors, the boys both love being outside and there’s plenty of stuff for all of us to do out there. We planted a bunch of flower bulbs last weekend, Ben loved helping with that.

Here are just a few recent photos. I still have some summer ones I want to share too.
