A Fun Fall Morning

I love going to the pumpkin farms in the fall. My brother and his family joined us today at the pumpkin farm. The boys enjoyed a hayride, seed trough, hay bale maze, riding the little tractors, and picking out pumpkins. Wesley, Will, Drew, and Graham playing with the corn kernels.

Graham and Will enjoyed the tire swing.

We took Graham to the same pumpkin farm two years ago when he was one.

More of Wesley

Wesley and I spent our Saturday morning together while Graham and Tim did some yard work. Thus, more pictures of Wesley. He's at such a fun age, and I just love spending time with him. With the exception of some fussiness due to teething, he's a very happy, loving little boy. He's doing lots of walking now.

Perpy had another Shermie bear made for Wesley. Shermie bear is made from one of Tim's dad's shirts with his initials on his foot-SMF-Sherman Morgan Franklin. All of the grandkids have one, and it's a great way to remember Grandpa Shermie. He would have been such a great grandpa and we wish the kids could have known him.
Wesley always makes high-pitched squeaky noises when he sees stuffed animals. He's giving his Shermie bear some love.

Wesley Walks!

Wesley started out this week taking one or two steps on his own, and now he's walking seven or eight steps across the room. He thinks it's quite funny and seems very proud of himself. He looks at me every time and gets this huge grin on his face. Graham likes to try to encourage him to walk by moving his hands off of whatever Wesley is holding onto. I keep trying to explain to Graham that's not the best tactic. Regardless, Wesley has given us great excitement this week. I'll try to catch a picture of it soon. baby is now a toddler!

A Morning Hike

While my dad was visiting last weekend, my brothers family joined us for a hike one morning. I think the boys got a little hot and tired, but we still had a good time.

Wesley is Movin'!

Wesley is fourteen months old today! He's really getting interested in walking. He likes to hold my hand and walk, and he's discovered how to push things around the house and sidewalk so he can walk. Here he is having a great time with the digger outside.
