Pumpkin Carving

 I wasn't sure how pumpkin carving would go this year with a baby and a kid with sensory issues. We didn't even attempt to make Tyler help gut the pumpkins. If he hasn't liked it after 7 years, we figured he wasn't going to change his mind this year. He has never liked the the issue of touching the slimy guts of a pumpkin.So he just enjoyed watching.

On the other hand, this was Kenna's first time and I wanted her to experience it and see what her thoughts were and see her reaction. I figured she would try to eat the pumpkin and I was right. We put it on her tray and she tried putting it in her mouth right away. This kid puts EVERYTHING in her mouth so that didn't surprise me. She then started to pick up the slimy guts and look at it and then look at me with a perplexed look. It always makes me wonder what is going through their little minds. After further investigating she decided she no longer wanted the unknown substance on her tray and began throwing it to the side and off of her tray.
