Saturday morning came too soon since we were up with Liam in the middle of the night. He was crying and crying and wouldn't go back to sleep. I thought maybe it was just the unfamiliar bedroom. Then I thought to check his diaper. Remember the pear he polished off in the car? Well, I'll just say it completely flushed him out and left him pretty raw. Poor guy.

But after a breakfast of probably too many cinnamon rolls, he was ready to go outside again.

First, he had to put on this sweater we recently received as a hand-me-down. It's a size or two too small, but how could we resist?
His first spin on the little tractor

My favorite part of the farm has always been the barn cats, especially the kittens. This little one was only 3 weeks old and very friendly.

Liam liked him, too.

Going on a farm tour.

Meeting the calf again.

Playing with Makenna. She is the daughter of Gabe's mom's cousin Jared and his wife Allison. I think she is his 3rd cousin..? Either way, she is super cute and it was fun to watch them play Although, Liam did not like it when she accidentally sat on his lap.
Allison and I went on a walk to try and keep our then-fussy babies happy...
Jared was nice enough to take Liam and I on our first tractor ride.
Liam was wide-eyed the entire ride, but afterwards he begged and begged to get back in. We have all of these pictures scrolling as our screen saver right now, and every time the tractor comes up, Liam points at it and makes tractor sounds. He is definitely a boy.

Enticing the teenager cows with a little snack.
They overcame their fears.
And took the bait.

They must have decided that he was okay, and came in for a closer look.
But it was a bit too close for Liam.
Makenna remained oblivious. That blade of grass was just too interesting to pass up.
