James is 4 months old!

James turned 4 months old today. I can't believe it. He is growing so fast I almost can't catch up. Yesterday was the first time he took an interest in Sophie, his giraffe teething pal, when he grabbed her and tried to stuff her whole head in his mouth. I think he is teething because he LOVES to gnaw on that darn giraffe and his fingers. See?

He's also been pulling on his lower jaw a bit as well.

To celebrate James turning 4 months, we took a trip to the pumpkin patch at Thistledown Farms.

The weather was beautiful, warm and sunny.

After purchasing some tickets in the market area, we headed through the covered bridge toward the wagon we'd take to the pumpkin patch.

We took a hayride down to the patch, James wide-eyed and taking it all in the while way.

Another couple with kids was with us, and they had a newborn and a one year old... the one year old wailed the whole way there and the whole way back because he was terrified of the tractor and bumpy ride! He was ok though. I thought for sure it would have been James that cried...

When we got to the patch, we took some pictures and checked out some pumpkins. James adorned his pumpkin hat from Great Grandma Carroll for the event.

We then climbed back on the hay wagon and enjoyed another bumpy ride back to the market!

There we bought our pumpkin, a mini pumpkin for James, some apples to make into baby food for later, and some cider for me.

It was naptime, so we headed home. But when James woke up from his nap, he was all too happy to pose with his pumpkin!

James, 4 months old!!

And so his fifth month begins!
