Ezra at 11 Months Old

Ezra now weighs 21 pounds and 4 ounces.
  • His new favorite word is "No!" 
  • Loves music and dancing.  During his sister's dance class, he loves to watch and dance along with the rest of the class. 
  • Loves water, but he has the hardest time actually drinking any. He always seems to spit it all out or choke on it.  
  • When he's in the mood, he gives the sweetest and wettest kisses.  
  • Thinks the silly noises that his sister makes are hilarious. 
  • Prefers to eat the crumbs under his high chair over eating his actual food on the table.  
  • Can walk on his own, but he prefers to hold his mommy's or daddy's hand, usually his mommy's.
  • Usually sleeps from 6:45 pm to 6:45 am. I guess he wants to make sure he gets exactly 12 hours of sleep in. No more. No less. Ha. He does, however, still wake up once per night to eat. One of these days he will sleep through the night, one day!

A & E's first trip to Linder Farms

Back in October of 2011, Gabe and I discovered this awesome pumpkin patch called Linder Farms, and ever since, it's been our absolute favorite p-patch. Once we moved back to Boise, Gabe and I had  been looking forward to taking the kids, like we were excitedly discussing it back in July. We finally got to take them this past weekend, and the kids were just as pleased with Linder farms as we had hoped they would be. Ezra was especially excited, because there were orange 'balls' everywhere for him to play with, and Anniston loved the tractor ride. She thought it was pretty cool picking out her very own pumpkin as well, but the tractor ride definitely beat out the pumpkins in her book. It's funny how you really enjoy something, and then you see it through your children's eyes, and it makes it like 100 times better. Here's to Linder Farms, making our pumpkin patch dreams come true since 2011. 

Here are the links for the two previous times we went to Linder Farms as college kids, before we had any of our own, if you wanna look, 2011 & 2012
