Ok in all reality no day, especially in a mother's life, is perfect. But today for me was pretty darn close. My little man is almost 6 months old and I am at that stage of parenthood in enjoying all the firsts with my firstborn. Today was the pumkin patch! While he's not big enough to pick out his own pumkin, I certainly was thrilled with introducing him to the concept. It brings a new awareness of life to think of things through our childs eyes, espeically at the first time for something. Add on top of that experience the fact that today was a gorgous fall day in Oregon. I don't mind fall, a few days of rain and then a break to recharge. Sometimes Oregon forgets to give us that break. But today more then made up for that sometimes forgetfulness, sunny and 78 is pretty much perfect weather in my book! My son also had his 6 month well baby check up today. (Yes as a dairy farmer you often group your outings all into one day! Getting away one day can be hard enough!) We have a completely healthy son, and I definitely don't take that for granted.
Such a great day makes me feel so blessed!
