Last "Solo Flight"

Over the last few weeks, Little Mr. Farwell has been preparing for the arrival of his little sister.  A long promised trip to pick apples, an afternoon at the Children's Museum with mom, and lots of special time with Dad (while mom put up some very swollen feet).  Here are some pictures of Little Mr. Farwell's final weeks flying solo (in no particular order).

Birthday party at the B family's house, where they have fabulous costumes....
Including this mermaid dress and witch's hat.
Touch a Truck day with the Gerbers!
Morning silliness--shirts as pants, soft fleece gloves ready to go.
Birthday party for Little Mr. Farwell's baby doll--she is very loved.
First trip to the Children's Museum with mom, the afternoon before Little Sister's arrival.
Aye matey!
Practicing bouncing the baby on the yoga ball
Apple picking at Shelburne Farm.  Back in the spring we explained to Little Mr. Farwell that his little sister would come after we went apple picking (which seemed so far off).  So off we went to pick apples (Cortlands and McIntoshs), drive John Deere tractors, bounce in the bouncy house and devour apple cider donuts.

How he's grown....
For comparison's sake--here they are apple picking two years ago in Nova Scotia.

An apple the size of his face--wow!
