So in preparation for our upcoming vacation I had a lot on my to do list today… Did I accomplish it all? Nope but I did get a lot done that I didn’t even know should have been on my list :). Isn’t that always the case.
One thing that happened today with Seth that was really cool is that he started eating those little Gerber Star Puffs. About a month or so ago I tried giving him one and he choke on it I had to tap him on the back pretty hard to get it out. I was nervous today but he has been eating solids regularly now for a while and he has the chewing technique down pretty good. He loved them and I even though him how to put them in his own mouth… his dexterity is minimal but hey he’ll get there before I know it.

I still remember the day when I first noticed him holding something in his hands. We were at my mom for Sunday lunch and my mom was feeding him some milk she gave him the little baby cloth she had and he held it. I was amazed… now he’s holding his own bottle and feeding himself. Crazy!!!
So I was in Gymboree and on their sales rack they had a baby monkey costume exactly Seth’s size for 6$. Since we don’t really celebrate Halloween I hadn’t done anything in preparation for it. This gave me a thought I bought the outfit and I was going to make my way to a popular spot in downtown PDX for some high grasses to take photos. Well of course it didn’t happen because Seth had started crying and we got stuck in 4 pm rush hour. I was bummed but as I was making my way home I remembered my husband telling me about this little pumpkin patch near by our house and it was on my way home. So I made my way there. I can’t even believe I was able to get these photos in but I am so happy. So today Seth and I had our first trip to the pumpkin patch. So many firsts all in one day. Awesome day!
