Tolmachoff Farms

Today, Carmela and I went to the Pumpkin Patch.  They had a petting zoo, a corn maze, and lots of corn and pumpkins.  The best part was when Carmela was watching the chickens and up came a crowing rooster.  She thought is was so funny that that big bird would make such a noise!

Mom and Tot Swim

 Carmela (almost 10 months old now and crawling all around) and I have been taking a swim class on Saturday mornings with my friend, Holly, and her 11 month old, Abby.  Carmela is such an observer.  She studies her surroundings and likes to figure out who she's hanging out with.  Our first Saturday, the teacher had us all line the babies up on the edge of the pool, count to 3, and have the kiddoes "jump" into the water.  Carmela was too busy studying everyone else to watch her mommy, so we waited until everyone else had jumped in, before she took her turn.  Now she knows the routine and enjoys the edge of pool sitting jumps, watching me blow bubbles, and waving hello to the other kids.
