Halloween is fast approaching, which could only mean one thing: It's time to visit the pumpkin patch at one of our local farms.
Since we took Molly to the same pumpkin patch last year, I thought it would be fun to take a little walk down memory lane. Wow! How she has changed!
First stop: See how much we measure up.
It appears that I have not grown any taller, but look at Molly!
2007 Just a little peanut.
2008 Growing like a weed.
Hmmmm...what is up with this picture? I think that it must be an optical illusion. I am the same height in both photographs, but it appears that Molly has grown almost a foot in the past year. In actuality, she's only grown 4 1/2 inches. 2007: 31 inches 2008: 35 1/2 inches.
Next stop on our journey down memory lane: Molly's adventurous spirit.
My, oh my has she changed a lot in this department.
2007 Hated doing anything new.
2008 Ready to explore the universe....by herself (remember the "No, IIIIIIIII do it" post?)
Final stop on Memory Lane Tour: Finger sucking.
2007 Molly is sucking on her fingers.
2008 Hey wait a minute. Molly is still sucking on her fingers. I guess not everything about our girl has changed!
Here are some other favorite pictures from the day:
Molly the Kitty with Mommy.
Molly the Little Pumpkin with Daddy.
Molly getting the Princess treatment from her Daddy.
Trying to decide on just the right pumpkin to select.
I think I want this one!
Hauling our pumpkins out to the truck.
Here is the most perfect pumpkin in the whole patch! Oh my goodness, she has a way of taking my breath away.
Molly's favorite part of the day...eating rock candy on the drive home.
And finally, for all of those wondering about the Great Pumpkin that grew out of our compost heap during the summer. He is still alive and kickin'. He is on a shelf in the basement, perched in between a bottle of fabric softener and a container of antibacterial wipes.
He has a few blemishes (but don't we all), but he just might make it to Halloween. Stay tuned.
