Pumpkin Patch

Remember last year's trip to the Pumpkin Patch?

We plopped Alex down among the pumpkins, and she obliged us with a few glances, but mostly just looked around in a calm, mellow mood.  

Well, what a difference a year makes!

She was on the run this year.  Choosing a pumpkin was last on the priority list when there was so much RUNNING to be done! 

Occasionally she stopped (not for our benefit, of course) and gave a quick glance at a pumpkin or two.

She had some good times with her cousins:

She had some giggles with Daddy:

And played some pumpkin bongos with Gamma:

She threw a few (or more) tantrums, but she had some laughs too:

And fun was had by all! Schnepf Farms is by far the BEST place to go for October fun.  We will definitely be making it an annual trip.

Baby or blue????

And drum roll please..........PINK! Alexandra is going to have a little sister!

Well, for the record, I just KNEW it was a girl this time.  I would have been shocked had they seen boy parts!  Not that we wouldn't have been excited for a boy too, it's just that we knew we were going to have two girls.  And we are so thrilled!

Two girls to laugh with each other, borrow each other's clothes, tell secrets, giggle, play dress-up....(and of course, argue, fight and terrorize too!)   How exciting!

Words words words words!

Alex has been expanding her vocabulary lately.  Her favorite words are:
Hi!  (she draws it out and says Hiiiiiiiiiiii!!)
Tickle Tickle Tickle Tickle (while scrunching her fingers and trying to tickle you)
Sadie (She says Sa--ee, missing the "D")
Baby (while pointing to mom's tummy, though I'm sure she has no idea what that really means)
Patch (That's the name of her favorite stuffed dog from 101 Dalmations)

There are plenty of others that she repeats when we say them, but she doesn't really have them integrated into her daily conversation yet.
