Fall Weekends at the Farm


Last Fall, B was just a tiny nugget when we came to my husband's family farm. At the time, it was a welcome getaway from the newborn fog of feedings and late nights. This year, we've got a one year-old who's interested in exploring e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g in sight, which has been an adventure in itself.

A few of B's favorite things this year at the farm:

  1. Showing how she could climb the stairs, and then turn around and go down them (Usually prompted by "Turn around, 1, 2!" and a spotter just in case!).
  2. Playing "chase," and giggling wildly when anyone says "I'm gonna get youuu!"
  3. Pointing to her 3 month old cousin and saying "Nuh Nuh Nuh Nuh." We've nicknamed her cousin "Nut Nut" - slang for Peanut, since she's obviously a sweet little Peanut :)
  4. Riding (taking it very seriously, with no emotion visible) safely and slowly on various farm vehicles with Grandpa and Daddy.
  5. Cuddling and eating breakfast with Mommy, Daddy, Aunt Syd, and Cousin Sky while watching Moana for a solid 15 min.
  6. Attempting to eat rocks off the ground outside, including one grasshopper which escaped just in the nick of time.

Watching B get to enjoy a family farm is the cherry on top of my Kansan girl heart's sundae. We love being together with family, enjoying all the quiet prairie beauty outside our city limits.
