I really can't believe it is already October and Walker is already a month old! Time really is flying! Baby Walker is still doing great! We have just started to venture out with him......just a little bit. I am a touch paranoid about taking him out. I feel OK with taking him to the store and to run quick errands but am still very, VERY hesitant to take him to places where he will be loved on. I think in a couple of weeks he will make his debut in these settings. He has already outgrown all of his newborn clothes! He is growing so fast! We go for his one month check up on October 5th...I can't wait to go and see his new stats! :)
In other news, our first "child" (Gatsy) came home last Wednesday after spending about a month at Boo and Papa's house (my parents). I was a little nervous about this transition. Gatsy is a bundle of energy and loves to be the center of attention and I was not sure how she was going to handle the new dynamics in the house. Well, she has done AMAZING! She LOVES Walker. She is very concerned and upset when he cries, she will bring him her bones and will run to the nursery/all around the house first thing in the morning until she finds Walker. It is very cute!

Gatsy....just a little concerned that Walker is upset!
Walker's first visit to the pumpkin patch. Yes. We took him at 4 weeks old. I was a nervous wreck the whole time! We all survived and had fun! :)
I absolutely love, Love, LOVE the fall! It is my FAVORITE time of the year. I love the weather, I love the atmosphere around town during football season, I love the changing leaves on the trees, and I love PUMPKINS! So, in honor of the fall, I experimented and made some YUMMY Pumpkin Muffins. I combined, modified, and added my own twist to several recipes to come up with this one....you need to try it! Please don't judge. Yes, I am a dietitian, and NO these are not the healthiest, but my motto is "Everything in moderation!" So, make up a batch and enjoy the changing seasons!
