Every set of stairs, I held my breath. He was so excited...was he paying attention to each step? Ani was all smiles watching her big brother run around as happy as can be.
The first house gave us animal crackers...a bag for Norrin and a bag for Ani. She isn't ready for an animal cracker yet, but the bag they came in kept her entertained for half a block.
Halloween really is Norrin's favorite holiday. I have never enjoyed asking strangers for candy. Even with the scripted dialogue, I'm uncomfortable with the whole thing. So, I've had to break out of my shell a little bit more and embrace this candy coated day of craziness. Norrin negotiated for 5 pieces of candy that night, but then only chose to eat 2. He watched one Halloween special, we read 2 Halloween books and we were in bed by 9 pm. Ani has been getting a little power nap around 7:30, then staying up until 10 pm the past few nights. But she's pleasant and she's too busy perfecting her motor skills to bother with anyone, so I knit :). As of 2 days ago, she's started trying to pull up on the furniture. She hasn't figured out how to do this, but she paws at the couch like a little puppy and if you help her stand, she smiles like she won the biggest prize in the universe.
