Curtis Orchards

Aunt Mary Anne came for a visit in September. It was great fun to have her here. Although it was a mostly rainy and laid back weekend, we did venture out on one nice day to visit Curtis Orchards. We walked the apple orchard and pumpkin patch then enjoyed some tasty treats from the cafe. They were so tasty, in fact, that we brought some home to continue to enjoy throughout the weekend. Mmm, cider donuts. :)

Here are some pics from our adventure:

1 month!

Saturday marked Nora's one month birthday. She is growing and getting sweeter by the day. I mean, look at her! Sweet, sweet, sweet.

At her one month check-up we learned that she has gained over 2 pounds, weighing in at 6lbs 13 oz. She also gained a bit more than an inch in her length. The doc was very happy with her progress.

With this growth, we can now put Nora in her buzzy chair, giving her an opportunity to sit up. The downside of this is that Stella the Pug barks whenever the vibration is turned on. We'll see how that progresses...

We can also get into cloth diapering (they were too big before). Today is our first effort. I'm sure there will be some adventures related to this. Wish us luck as we try to save money and the environment with this decision.
