Why not do a photo shoot on a unseasonably warm October day? It was eerily calm today, surprising for what is in store for the next few days. Hurricane Sandy is on her way and, from what the weather channel is showing, it's a once-in-a-lifetime storm. We'll see what happens in these next few days. In the meantime, we got outside for a little photo shoot. Evan was loving the leaves, which Brian was throwing on him:

It appears that life will never be the same again because Eric is now on the move! He is crawling about 2 months before Evan did . . . and so the differences begin. His first few "crawling steps" were on Friday (10/19) and here is a video we got earlier this week. He's also started clapping his hands when he sees us clap. I have a feeling he is going to keep our hands full for the next few years!

West Goshen Park has a fall festival every year, including hay ride, pumpkin patch and treats for the kids. I took a million pictures and I am putting half of them here. Here are the boys on the hayride - Evan only had eyes for the tractor that was pulling us:

A few weeks ago, we decided to venture back to Highland Orchards for our 2nd annual tradition of apple picking. Evan was willing to stand in front of the pumpkins for a few seconds and Eric is always happy to pose for photos at this age:
I look forward to this tradition every year. Upon returning home, we cooked up a huge batch of apple sauce which we froze and can give to Eric in the coming months.
If you want to see how much Evan has changed in a year, here is a link to last year's apple picking trip: http://www.felttales.blogspot.com/2011/09/apple-day.html

Time continues to fly and now we have a 7 month old on our hands. Not too much to report in the last month. Eric continues to be an easy baby who loves to sleep and loves his solid foods. He likes to be entertained by his older brother and he's getting more and more anxious to move. He can get his way to whatever toy is just out of his reach and he's starting to get up on his hands and knees. He is motivated to crawl but I still think we're at least a month away. He was happy to pose for his frog picture this month:
