Autumn is a time that seems to be full of even more adventure and excitement for Orion than the summer had. The last few weeks have been non-stop and this weekend was pretty much the same. We had a visit from Aunt Jaime and a trip to the Pumpkin Patch. He loved running around the ranch and seeing all the people. He also seemed to really enjoy finding the exact pumpkin he wanted to take home. We could tell (by his snarky attitude) that he was getting tired by the end of the evening for sure, but I'm glad he had a good time.
He also has more frequently began to talk about family and how much he misses them. When he's not talking about anyone specific, he calls them his "ancestors." I'm not sure where he came up with this term, honestly, but I think it's adorable. He has also attached himself to his cousins (my step-sister's sons) and frequently tells me that he misses them. Very few days go by that he isn't telling us that he misses one family member or another, be it Aunt Ashley, Little Grandpa, or just his Ancestors in general. He's such a sweet kid and loves his family so much. It's a very interesting development in him and I couldn't be more proud of the loving boy he has grown into.
