Leyna was born in the middle of winter; and while it was balmy, nearly warm the day we brought her home, within weeks, we were trapped inside our house, held hostage by an ice storm.
There were a few weeks of spring that we got out, but she was still so young then. I’m not sure she really enjoyed it, and we didn’t go any place too notable.
Summer was hell. Hell.
We lived in our house for 3 months. And even when we did get out, we didn’t go many places that I felt like lugging my camera with me and making her pose for pictures.
If you go through my photo library on my laptop (because, like the awesome mother I am, that’s where all her pictures live, and not in any sort of book or album), you’d think Leyna never leaves the house… or she does, but she just goes to other people’s homes.
This weekend, 2 days out from Halloween, on a Saturday, when it was sure to be PACKED, I forced everyone to go to the pumpkin patch. Sure, Kendall would have fun and family memories and BLAH BLAH.
Really? We needed some pictures of this girl doing something other than living in our house.
I present to you, our 10 MONTH OLD enjoying the pumpkin patch for the first time, along with her brother.
This happens to be the same pumpkin patch (Flower Mound Pumpkin Patch) that we took Kendall to his first Halloween.
As you can see, he was thrilled. I think it’s safe to say he had much more fun this time around.
Kendall is 3.5 years old and Leyna is 10 months old. Bring on the holiday picture fun!
