From pumpkin belly, to pumpkin butt, to big girl in the pumpkin patch...

I remember taking this picture like it was just yesterday... not a year ago already. Eric and I had so much free time on our hands back then, that he painted my pregnant belly like a pumpkin. It was a lot of fun, and we still had no idea if little Alli was going to be a boy or a girl... so the anticipation was killing us!

Then a few weeks later came little Allison Ruah... and our lives have never been dull since. And free time? That's a distant memory too... but we wouldn't trade this little face for anything.

What a difference a year makes! Now, almost a year later, we have this almost toddler on our hands! She is active, crazy, fun, and still never gives us a free moment to relax. But, we're still loving this cute little face and enjoying every minute of parenthood. We took her to the pumpkin patch out on Johns Island today (since the one at Boone Hall right by our house was closed (closed?! come on, it's a pumpkin patch, on a weekend in October, get with the program Boone Hall!), but we had a ton of fun. She loved seeing the other kids, playing around in the pumpkin patch, riding the wheelbarrow, and petting the horse, donkey, and sheep.

Maybe we'll try the one at Boone Hall next weekend and see how it compares... just another day in the not so dull life of the Meibers clan =)


  1. What cute pictures!! Yea, free time, what's that?!

  2. Who said she was allowed to grow up? I remember refreshing FB all day, waiting for lil Meibs to make his or her arrival like it was yesterday!
