Number 3

Maxfield Rivers is now officially 8 months old. There is quite a lot of personality, passion, and determination packed into one teeny body. He loves playing with Daddy's PS3 (as he is in love with the cords and the plastic game containers) but is learning the meaning of "NO NO" rather quicky...I hope. He is very active, and eventhough he isn't walking yet, I find myself very tired at the end of the day. He is sleeping in his crib these days (Mommy is sad about this.....), till oh about 4:45-5:00 am, then snuggles in bed with mommy (a comprise) while he nurses. He is eating mashed up food now, instead of pureed baby food. We found that he wants in on all the food action so we let him eat what we eat, and he's happy with that. He is crawling, mostly of the army crawl type, but he is a master at the plank and has even crawled for real a few times but chickens out.  He tolerates loves his sisters most of the time, but hey they are a lot to swallow at he needs time to himself from time to time. I swear that he mimics me when I say "HAAAZEL" (which I say a thousand times a day so I'm not surprised) but most of the family thinks I'm crazy...and its official, he does say "DaDa". 
We love this guy....we do. He has brought so much excitement and love to our family...thank you God for our Maxfield!  He is so loving, and sweet and has the most amazing smile ever! His favorite thing is being kissed on the neck, which actually makes him melt, so I'm happy to give him thousands of neck kisses a day. He just loves his Dad, and the smile he gets when he sees him is priceless. Yes, he is very loved!! We are blessed!

A day in the garden.

Spending the day at Longwood Gardens was a great idea (We have a membership that is way underused!!)!!! We used it as a field trip on a Monday last week. How often do you just let kids frolic in the open, fresh air with the warm sun shining? Well to be perfectly honest, not nearly enough around here!! The kids had so much fun!!!

Have a gorgeous, lovely, and fabulous day!!!

After our apple picking excursion, we visited a nearby park/nature preserve type place. We were admiring the cutest sailboat (pictured above) then this gentlemen showed up and took it out for a ride.  We snacked, chatted, and the kids walked along the dock and played with sticks in the water. It  was nice....
Our friends, the Goods, they are very cool! We like them...a lot!
This is Ellie, she is very cute!!! She is the Goods' youngest child! She kind of reminds me of Sal, from Blueberries for Sal. Very sweet!!! <3
Hazel and her friend Benjamin!
Have a beautiful weekend!!
Enjoy some sunshine and spend time with those you love!!

Apple Pickin'

We smacked two quintessentially Fall activities into two days...getting our pumpkin, and picking apples!!! It was a fun filled (warm, as I previously mentioned) couple of days doing Fall-ish activities. This year, we had the pleasure of apple picking with friends from fun!!
Now to figure out what to do with all these apples! So far we have apple butter made, and a pie...still so many apples left. We'll see what we come up with!!!
