Required Fall Activity

I don't usually do weekend recaps, mainly because most times our weekends are pretty mundane. But this past weekend was pretty close to perfect. First and foremost, Hunter slept AWESOME (and I've now probably jinxed myself). He slept from 8-6:30am straight (Fri/Sat/Sun nights), I changed and fed him at 6:30 and then he went back to sleep for another 1-2 hours. Normally he's up at 6am on the dot (if not earlier) and ready to go for the day). In addition to the awesome night sleeping, both days he took a 2 1/2 hour nap. I love naptime. I'm praying to the sleep Gods that this pattern continues. As Kristian said "He finally gets it" sleep is a good thing.

In addition to his great sleeping, there were other highlights of the weekend which included a trip to the pumpkin patch, followed by a solo mommy/Hunter trip to Michael's and Target in the afternoon without any meltdowns. Sunday we took our family pictures and Hunter did really well all things considered (sneak peek pictures coming tomorrow). After about an hour he was over it and fussy and ready for a long nap. That afternoon mama got to go get a much needed massage. It was just a very nice weekend with my little family and my son couldn't have been a better behaved child. Oh and we had the trifecta of football wins, VA Tech, ECU and the Redskins ALL won, that almost never happens.

Here are the pictures from our trip to the pumpkin patch. And by pumpkin patch I mean the flower nursery down the street that has pumpkins and activities for kids. We didn't feel like driving out to a "real" pumpkin patch.

 

Every little boy need a camo puffer vest.

My cute little family.

Maybe next year he can actually go down the bouncy slide. For now he just gets to sit on it.

Here is our family picture this year.
Last year my belly was the size of a pumpkin and this year my baby is bigger than the pumpkins.

Sounds like an amazing weekend. I'm jealous of all the good sleeping! I keep seeing all these adorable pumpkin patch photos and thinking that I need to do that with the girls but I'm too lazy for my own good.
I love a baby in a puffer vest.
