Baby Girl, Halfway Cooked (20 weeks)

Sorry I'm wearing kind of ugly clothing, but you know what? That's what's comfortable when I'm pregnant!!

Happy Halloween, Pardner!

Here's Barrett all ready for our neighborhood's Halloween party last week:

Barrett was happy to see that one of our neighbors had borrowed a tractor to give the kids hayrides.

Loved the tractor!

Pumpkin Patch

I am completely exhausted from this day already, but I wanted to go ahead and post the goings-on of the boy today so I could remember them. We went to a local pumpkin patch with the MOMS Club today and we had a lot of fun. I organized the trip, which consisted of about 15 moms and their kids, so I was a little tired before we even got to the farm!

Barrett's done some funny stuff today and I want to remember it all! The day started with me taking a shower. As usual, Barrett was in the bathroom with me, emptying all the bathroom drawers. Well, today, he somehow got some liquid soap open and spilled it all over himself and the bathroom while I was showering. When I realized what he'd done, I put him in the bathtub and rinsed him off, but he kept slipping and falling on the soap that was on the floor. It's a huge mess and I've yet to clean it up, but hopefully I'll remember to put the soap in the locked cabinets from now on!

On to the pumpkin patch--We got there early so that we could have time to meet and take a look at the farm animals that are near the entrance to the farm. Barrett and I always kiss through the bars of playground equipment or of his crib, so when he saw a fence, he apparently thought he should kiss through that as well. Unfortunately, the only thing on the other side of the fence was a pony, so Barrett kissed him! Gross! He also stuck his finger up the nose of any animal that got close enough to be touched. I swear that boy's going to be a veterinarian! He certainly isn't scared of any animal.

After what seemed like forever, we got on the wagon being pulled by a tractor and headed out to pick our pumpkin. There were several farm animals that the guide stopped and fed on the way to the patch, so I didn't think it was a very big deal that Barrett was walking around the wagon when we were stopped. What I didn't realize was that he was walking around to get a closer look at some donkeys in the field we were stopped in. He was holding a plastic snack cup with pretzels in it and just as I hollered to another mom to please grab it from him, he flung it to the donkeys. They, of course, picked it up and started eating the cup and the pretzels. All the other moms were laughing and taking pictures of the donkeys eating the cup, but I was a little embarrassed! We got the cup back and after I run it through the sanitize setting on the dishwasher, it'll be good as new.

I didn't get too many good pictures, but I'll post what I got a little later.

My poor baby!

Disclaimer: This post contains kind of yucky images, so if you're not into that, look no further than the first 2 pics!!

Doesn't Barrett look happy here?

Here he is relaxing on his firetruck chair. Again, he looks pretty happy, right?

Until you get a closer look, you'd never know he was attacked by fire ants a few days ago!

This looks so painful to me, but he's handling it pretty well! He even wore shoes for a couple hours today. When we got home and he took them off, though, he breathed, "Ahhhhhhhhhh"!

Both feet have bites all over them, even between the toes. What purpose do fire ants serve? I'd never even heard of them until we lived in TX. They seem to be worse here in MS, but that could just be because we have a yard here. It wasn't even our yard where he was attacked, though! We were visiting a friend that had a HUGE mound of ants in her yard. I know this...when we are playing anywhere unfamiliar, this momma will be taking a closer look before letting Barrett wander!!
