pumpkin patch & 5 months

i love fall here in Pittsburgh - perfect weather! most of the time anyways...

we took advantage of it this past weekend and made our annual trip to the pumpkin patch -
Cole's first of course

we took the hayride up to the pumpkins

it surprisingly wasn't too crowded and they still had a decent amount of pumpkins left. 

enough for a cute posed picture -

and a family picture

can't wait until we carve pumpkins this weekend. mine is usually just a boring face, but still fun!
love traditions!

and i read on wholesomebabyfood.com that a lot of babies like pumpkin - so we're going to save it, cook it, puree it, and freeze for next month! can't wait!!

we really want to try to make all of his baby food! healthier and cheaper!

so far we've done bananas, but we just mash those as he eats them. he loves those!

and tonight I baked a butternut squash and pureed it and tried to give him some - he ate a lot at his evening feeding though, so I don't think he was hungry enough for it - he gagged! but he didn't spit it at me like he did the rice cereal, so I dont think he hated it! 

(that doesn't look like bananas mom!)

(I don't know about this)

(if i don't look at her, maybe she'll stop trying...)

 we'll try again tomorrow!

he also turned 5 months over the weekend! time is just flying!

he's still just a little guy. 11 lbs 10oz at his appointment last week. he's getting there!

 so full of smiles and laughs though! we just love him!!

that's all for tonight! feeding time...

have a great day!
