Perfect Pumpkins

In the picture below, you see Owen and Emery, my "perfect pumpkins"!

They posed for me at The Pumpkin Patch. This was our most recent outing. We had originally planned on dressing Emery in his costume but decided against it at the last minute. While there we made our way through half of the Corn Maize, enjoyed a hayride, devoured some S'mores (not Emery!) and danced to some Irish music. It was a lot of fun. :)

Here we have Daddy and Emery at church waiting to go on stage for the baby dedication. Unfortunately this is the only picture we have of the dedication.

It was a sweet moment. I carried Emery onstage so Owen could have his hands free to hold the microphone. There were maybe five families that were dedicating children, on our turn to tell the congregation why we were choosing to dedicate Emery Owen got a bit emotional and we had to do a mid stage switch so I could do the talking instead.
It was a nice public gesture that was a promise to Emery that we would raise him in a way that is pleasing to the Lord.

The same day we took Emery to the nursery for the first time.

He loved it of course. I don't think he even noticed that we were gone. Owen told his mom that it seemed like we were on a date. I was a bit distracted thinking about Emery the whole time. Baby steps right? It's good for all of us to have a break, and it's great to prepare Emery for someone else to care for him if (ahem...when) I go to school.

Once we got home, we decided to have a mini photo shoot once we got home. The leaves were all over the place and Emery looked so adorable in his little suit jacket. Check these out!

Putting a leaf in his mouth.

He wouldn't let go of the leaves.

It's been a busy month around these parts and there are a ton more pictures to show you, but unfortunately Emery is 'army crawling' now and I don't have the patience to sit here and upload them all one by one. I leave you all with this little gem. He's not hands-and knees crawling, but that doesn't matter because it seems he's got other plans. Yes folks, he's pulling up!
