So many good things to love about fall…we’ve been trying to take advantage of the nice weather and get out when we can. We had some “firsts” for Toby, including going to Pumpkintown in Connecticut and apple picking at a local farm. I’m not sure what he thought of all the pumpkin people – I think he was just trying to take everything in, especially because it was pretty crowded when we went. For apple picking, he was trying to get used to the Ergo again since we haven’t used it in a while but he became pretty calm once I got walking around the orchards. It was breezy that day so the leaves on the trees made a lot of noise which interested him. I don’t think he cared much about the apples, though :)
I’ve had more that my fair share of pumpkin coffee and apple cider donuts…along with plenty of homemade apple crisp. Sometimes I wish it could be fall year-round but then I would miss out on spring, which I’ve also always loved.
When people found out I was pregnant, I heard so many comments of how I was so lucky to have the summer off and that mid June was the perfect time to have a baby. In reality, while it was nice to not be pregnant in the hotter months, it was kind of a bummer being cooped inside when it was really gross out. Toby would get sweaty easily in the car seat and it’s not like he could be out in the sun for very long. The weather transition to fall has been so nice and a welcome change. We can go for walks and I don’t have to worry about him getting overheated or having to cover his legs up since he’s always wearing pants now. I just wish he would cuddle more on crisp, chilly mornings :)
Can’t wait for Halloween and Thanksgiving to see how he reacts to everything!
