39 Weeks

Favorite activity: Crawling!
Favorite food: Tofu cubes
Favorite spot: anywhere on the laminate floor, where she can easily crawl. Especially underneath the jumperoo
Naughtiest moment: Hunting for cords
Cutest moment: Playing with the dogs
Important milestones: First trip to the pumpkin patch
How Mom's Feeling: Pretty good. Today, Lorelei is 9 months old. That boggles my mind. She has been out longer than she has been in! How did that happen? In the short span of 9 months, Lorelei can smile, giggle, laugh, roll over, sit up, talk (well, not real words yet!), belly crawl, eat solid foods and stand with assistance. She's really developing a personality: very easygoing, but can be extremely persistent. She's curious about everything and wants to see it all. It's been amazing to watch her learn and develop new skills.

This weekend, we went to the pumpkin patch for the first time, with our friends Jenna and Wes and their son Ronen and Christine and Ben with their daughter Emily. We went on the hay bale ride, visited the petting zoo, and looked at a lot of pumpkins! Lorelei was unsure of the entire place. It was very loud (there was a train that kept going "choo choo!" very loudly, which I think upset her) and there were quite a few people. The highlight of the trip, for sure, was the petting zoo and getting to pet a particularly fluffy white chicken. She liked it so much, she tried to grab the chicken's feathers and instead, pulled a feather out of it's tail! That was quite the startled chicken! And this signaled the end of our visit in the petting zoo! Next week, we will have pictures of Lorelei with her pumpkins in her Halloween costume!

Despite appearances, the wheel barrow was not going fast (or at all!)

Ben and Emily (you might have noticed this was for sure a Beco Baby Carrier kind of party!)

Yep, we're a fan!
