I have become an infrequent blogger. Our family has been enjoying all things fall and fall festivities. To quickly sum up the past few weeks, a few weeks ago we trekked out to the Maryland Renassance Festival, followed by the pumpkin patch with friends the next day. The weekend after that we had a pumpkin carving party and the baby shower for a good friend. This past weekend we enjoyed some down time at home and met some friends for food to celebrate their run in the Marine Corps Marathon.

Whirlwind tour but a ball none the less. I actually wrote a blog about all of this but my phone hated me and decided to delete it all.

Kamran LOVED the Renaissance Festival. He rode around in his snuggli complete with pumpkin hat and got all of the attention a little guy could hope for. We should have turned it into a drinking game. “Take a drink every time you hear someone reference Kam’s pumpkin hat.” I should have gotten ahead of the pumpkin hats because they got more compliments than any hat I have made to date. When we got there, the little guy cooed, and ooohed more than I’ve ever heard I’m sure the 2 hour nap in the car seat on the ride there put him in a brilliant mood. I’m so glad car rides are no longer a scream fest!

I was personally SO excited about our trip to the pumpkin patch. I love everything fall and could not wait to take pictures of our little guy on haystacks with pumpkins. We met up with Kayvan’s co-workers and their 9 month old, Jackson and photograph we did! I made Jackson a hat to match Kamran’s and they looked like two adorable little pumpkins. Kamran got to see a momma cow and learned about how the farmers milk her. Momma friends, be jealous. A momma cow can pump a gallon of milk in 5 minutes!!! Bet you want that pump! Kamran also got to see the baby cows and watched them eat the milk that was just pumped. Then we met a big ole piggie and man did she STINK! Of course the adults got their fill of kettle corn (my favorite), apple cider and dominion root beer. Yummy! On our way out we took pumpkin pictures and picked out 3 baby pumpkins to take home. I still have to go through those photos but here is a cute picture of the boys talking.

The following weekend we went to a baby palooza pumpkin party at a friend’s house. Kamran met a new pint sized friend while we were there and hung out with his old bud Jackson. We carved a witch pumpkin and ate some fantastic food. Here is a picture of our pumpkin all lit up!

For Terri’s baby shower to celebrate the anticipated arrival of baby Autumn, we had another long drive and baby boy was a champ! He slept the entire way! It was great to see Terri and she seemed to enjoy meeting Kamran for the first time. Autumn is due a few days after Christmas so I made her a hat to fit the season!

This past weekend was a much needed low key weekend. We cleaned up the house, had dinner with NICU friends on Saturday and met with Millie and Linda to celebrate their marathon run on Sunday. To be able to run such a distance is admirable and I’m so proud of my friends!

On the developmental front, I’m so proud of my boy. He sits unassisted now, waves hi, but only to daddy, holds his own bottle, scoots, spins, twists, turns and rocks on his knees and has established a favorite stuffed animal–his giraffe. He is getting pretty mobile. Also something I am incredibly proud of is that Kamran is starting to sign back to us. We started sigining to him when we started on rice cereal at 5 months. Now he has started signing “milk”! I walk into his room in the morning, he smiles and once his eyes have adjusted to the light he will sign “milk” to me. He also just got his 3rd tooth, it is on the bottom left and is still working on the tooth on his top right.
