My brother, Jess and Guy welcomed baby Max Patrick at 12:07 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 14. He weighed 7 lbs., 13.4 oz. and was 21 in. long. He is absolutely perfect.

Fall in New England is full of fun activities like carving pumpkins, going on hayrides, watching football with friends, checking out the nearby Fall Show and - if you're 6 months pregnant like me - eating anything pumpkin-flavored you can get your hands on. Here's a look at what we've been up to.

Fall Show in Dighton on Saturday
one of the highlights of the day - petting a calf
the other highlight
Jill insisted on taking pictures of every single tractor for her cousin Guy
She kept backing up to make sure she included the entire tractor in the frame. Impressive!

Tony had the opportunity to visit England for eight days through work recently. We survived without him, though not without multiple FaceTime sessions and Jill whining that she wanted to give her Dad a hug.

Elisa and Tim are getting ready to welcome their first child - a girl - in mid-November. On Sunday, all of the college roommates met in Quincy for her baby shower. The food, especially the French toast, was amazing and I barely left room for cupcakes and Mrs. DiCarlo's homemade Italian cookies.

a beautiful day to visit the golf course
Meanwhile, down the road in Quincy at Heidi's place....
Jill snuggled with Heidi and her boyfriend, Tom, and watched Wild Kratts
They - well maybe more Tom - carved pumpkins too. Notice the "gross" pumpkin, that's all Jill was saying throughout the carving process.
