I think I am going to end up with a whole album full of photos that look like this. Whenever I lay N down anywhere, R grabs a couple blankets, cozies up and yells, "take a picture, Mommy!" This coming from the girl who usually turns her back whenever I bring the camera out. How can I refuse?!! What sweethearts.

Last week we spent the afternoon with a good friend at Blue Hill Farm and oh my gosh, we had so much fun! For being a city girl, R seems really at home with the animals and was so sweet and gentile and brave with all of them (though she didn't really care much for the chickens - particularly when they were picking at our toes!)

The animals are all mostly contained but there were a few litters of piglets who were small enough to squeeze under the fences and were running all over the field. What an adventure! We spent the good part of an hour running around with them and trying to get them comfortable enough with us to come close. And, it worked!

Happy late Halloween! Even though this is technically R's 3rd Halloween, in a lot of ways it really felt like her first. It was the first time she requested the theme of her own costume ("Bunny. . .  No, a LOT of bunnies. . . No, a lot of bunnies and two butterflies. . . . No, a goat."), the first time she really noticed the costumes on other kids and the first time she did real trick-or-treating. She loved it and I have to say it made the whole thing way more fun for me too. Watching her have a total giggle fest at the Halloween parade was probably just as hilarious for me as it was for her.
And don't worry, we didn't forget the little one either. . .
