Pumpkin Patch

What fun we had! Lil Man wasn't that impressed with the pumpkin patch, but he seemed to love the corn maze. He kept peeking through the stalks to try to see what was on the other side. It was beyond cute. I love fall and watching my Lil Man explore life. However, his 'exploring' has got us into trouble a time or two. Once, in a store that I will not mention, in a time that I will not add, Lil Man pushed the 'alarm' button in the elevator. A voice came over the intercom. What did I do?

Also, when I go to the gym, he is in the childcare there and is without me. I think that's helped too. But he made it the entire time yesterday without me, without his pacifier, and for the most part didn't shed any tears until the very end of the two hours.
