Halloween-Part II and after

2014.11.14
pixel
On the actual day of Halloween, we ended up at our local pediatrician's office for a lingering cough that Eleanor hasn't been able to shake. I just wanted to rule out anything worrisome, and she's since kicked it. Didn't exactly plan to spend 2 hours alone with a toddler and baby in the doctor's office on Halloween, though.

We did trick-or-treating this year in the neighborhood of a couple from our Sunday School class. Our neighborhood last year was 80% vacant with buckets of candy left on the driveways, and maybe everyone goes to this neighborhood of our friends' for trick-or-treating. They actual close off their street because they get so many people who drive in and park to trick-or-treat there. So our friends hosted a nice party and we slipped away to do our own trick-or-treating.

a good shot of her tail. Seconds later, she turned around and saw the scary wolf behind her and said, "Mama, pick me up!"

Evidence of the crowds this neighborhood gets: there were actual lines!

The next morning, Daddy volunteered to help build the new playground that will be closer to our house. I've been working with a grassroots group to bring the first public playground to our county, and it's finally here! It's still not officially open, but we can't wait to try it out and have one nearby!

We stopped by for a second to check on the progress and Lila got a special ride.

Eleanor is rolling over (back to front) a lot more these days. Even though she did it almost two months ago, she kinda stopped doing it for a while, just to pick it up again and then stop again. Now she's really doing it consistently. She also is chewing on anything she can get into her mouth these days, especially her thumb and fingers. Still no evidence of a tooth yet.

stretch!

The days have finally cooled off enough to have some good family time out on the blanket. Lila decided she needed to bring some books outside to read to NorNor.

Getting a lot stronger at holding my head up for longer periods of time!

I should not have mentioned to Lila on the way to vote that there may be an "I Voted" sticker afterwards. The precinct was out, and it just set this little one off. She was so sad. Thankfully, I keep a secret stash of stickers in my diaper bag that quickly diffused the moment.

Just moments after waking up from a nap.

This is what happens when you have an older sister.

We decided to try out the First Year baby version of our Mommie & Me class that Lila enjoyed so much as a toddler. We can't do the Toddler class anymore because it's on Tuesdays when Lila is in school. And I wasn't sure how it would go bringing Lila with me to the baby-only class. But the teacher Miss Madalene said to try and we'd see. I was SO proud of Lila my heart almost burst. She brought her own little babies (baby + Minnie Mouse) and sat them on her lap and sang all the songs and did all the finger plays. It was so sweet to see. And I'm so glad that this is something we can all do together! This was how Lila thought I should transport Minnie Mouse and Baby out to the car after class.

I'll never get tired of this sweet sleeping face.

Finally starting to get some chilly weather here and we're LOVING it!
