It seems strange to me how there are days when I'm able to get so much accomplished and then other days when it seems so hard to get anything done. I know part of it is attitude during the different times of the month, how tired I might be, how tired David might be. I'm sure there's a whole lot of reason why I might feel this way from time to time. I guess it's just how life goes.

Playing peek-a-boo: he puts the back of his hands over his eyes, presses so hard that he makes his eyes red, and he won't move his hands until you say, "Where is David?"
He's a multi-tasker: drinking his milk and pulling the puppy at the same time. Until just recently he hasn't been pulling the puppy but rather picking it all the way up off the ground by the string.
Checking out the leaves at the Scarritt-Bennett Center.
Pulling guts out of the pumpkin that we got at Waldon Farms. He was actually quite helpful, but he did try to eat the raw seeds.
And the final picture: he has learned how to get on and off of his riding toy (this picture is actually from July when we had to put him on the toy).
Lately, it seems like he's just exploded with new development. It's so fun to watch him. I love to just sit and watch him play, figuring something new out for the first time.

Today we took David to a pumpkin patch, Walden Farms in Smyrna. We had a great time. We got to pet animals (goats, sheep, pigs, turkeys, etc. David called the turkey a duck.), walk through a small pumpkin patch, go on a hayride, and eat some yummy pumpkin desserts. The farm is great. They have a lot of activities for children of all ages. There's a small maze made with hay for the kids and a big corn maze for those who are more adventuresome. There were riding toys for the kids, face painting, cotton picking. The list just goes on and on. My plan is for this type of outting to be one of our family traditions each year. I can't wait to see David's reaction as we go to pumpkin patches through the years. We took lots of pictures and I had a hard time deciding which one to post here. If you would like to see more just go to Flickr. Enjoy!

What is FlyLady? Check out www.flylady.net.
FlyLady is teaching me how to keep my home in order. She teaches you how to establish morning and evening routines for the things that need to be done everyday, weekly routines for general cleaning, and monthly routines for deeper cleaning. Since I became a SAHM (stay at home mom) she has been a life saver. When I first started staying home I was having trouble getting into a routine and I didn't know where to start, there was so much to do. FlyLady taught me that I can do anything in babysteps, fifteen minutes at a time. Since then I have begun decluttering our home and I'm always fifteen minutes away from being able to accept company into my home. What a wonderful feeling that is. We still have some work to do on the decluttering, but we are on our way.
I would like to thank Becky Sekeres for introducing me to FlyLady.
He's also started using the sign for more. I hope he will begin using more signs.

Wow, it's been a whole month and a half since I posted anything. Time sure does fly. My apologies. I'll try to do a better job at keeping you updated on what's going on in our world.
David is doing great! Last night I think Geoff counted that he's saying about 7 words, that we can understand, including out, down, and duck. He's also walking down the steps by himself, holding on to the posts.
I think he's going to be a computer geek like his Poppa.

Tuesday night we went out to dinner with Geoff's mom. She spent the night with us before flying out to Oklahoma to be with Geoff's sister, who is about to have her 3rd baby. Anyway, while we were eating dessert David decided he was going to try to help himself to another piece of cookie and stood up in the high chair. I know, it was dangerous, he could have fallen, but Geoff was right there and I just had to snap a quick picture. You can see that he has his eye on that cookie.
Then yesterday he decided to climb on top of the ottoman. It has now been moved to another room.

While in Paducah I got my hair cut. Anyone who really knows me knows that this is a big deal. I usually end up getting a big trim every spring. A trim for me is at least 6" cut off and it's just straight across. This time, I don't know how much she cut off, but it's just past my shoulders and it's layered. I really like it. Then Saturday night Mom helped me to put highlights in my hair. I've never had highlights before. Again, I really like it. Geoff thinks it's sexy.
