Walking on Halloween

That's right, my ten month old baby girl took her first two steps on Friday before we went out trick or treating! We thought she was getting close, so we kind of forced it when Andrew and I were both home. That way neither one of us would miss out on this milestone. Andrew was sitting on the floor with Chloe in our office and I held out my hands toward her, and Chloe took two steps before falling into my arms. It was so precious and she was SO proud of herself!!!!

On Friday morning, Chloe and I went to the zoo with some friends. The weather cooperated and we only got a few little sprinkles on us. It was fun to catch up with friends we had not seen in a while!

This was my favorite "animal" that we saw behind bars! Chloe trying to break free at Jodi's house.

The girls at the zoo--Delaney, Chloe, Emelyn, and Marie-Claire

Little Bo Peep (Shae), her sheep (Chloe) and sheep dog (Devin)
Shae loved pulling her sheep and dog in the wagon, until she realized how much it was slowing her down. Then Andrew got stuck pulling the wagon for the rest of the night.

This picture is really dark, but Chloe was cracking us up. She was sitting on the floor of the wagon, reclining with her feet up on one seat and resting her head on the other. This is the position she was in for much of the night, when Devin decided he wanted to walk with the big kids.

The cutest group of trick or treaters!!
Devin the sheep dog, Chloe the sheep, Eben the firefighter, Jacob the teenage mutant ninja turtle, Shae Little Bo Peep, Keilani the princess, Ella the butterfly

Chloe after we got home. She was so sweaty in her costume that she had to have a quick rinse off. This was what her hair looked like after toweling off. Well, it did have a bit of help from mom to make it look like that! Chloe is holding her two favorite toys!

We hope everyone had a fun and safe halloween!!

Such great pictures and adorable kiddos! Thanks for leaving the message on my blog. I'm thrilled that you "found" us and excited to be able to follow your blog too. I'd love to get Lilly together with all the little cousins sometime.
