Cow Girl(s)

We had a very fun Halloween...except for Todd being sick. He was a trooper; well, really, he was a lobster catcher per Gracie's request. We really appreciated that he joined us for pictures and trick or treating. It wouldn't have been fun without him.

Surprise, surprise - Gracie wanted to be a Lobster AGAIN...this was her 3rd Halloween being a lobster - yep, 3 out of 4 Halloweens - she's been a lobster...yes, she is her father's child! Gotta love the girl for getting every possible wear out of one costume.

(And I can't seem to get blogger to let me upload any more pictures...guess that happens since I rarely update this thing anymore). Anyways, I've got a few cute pictures of Gracie too...but I'll have to save those for another time when I can get them uploaded!

I couldn't find another lobster costume just like Gracie's for Delaney to wear I tried to get creative and went with the next best thing. I went with a cow for Miss D. (and I'm really proud of myself for sewing her horns & ears headband and cowtail).

Introducing the Surf & Turf Sisters.
Here's sweet D'Belle!

Miss D is on the move! She took her first steps mid-summer when she would walk behind push toys and move along the side of the furniture. Her very first steps, all on her own, happened on Labor Day with Todd right beside her! I'm so glad she took those first steps when he was home.

Sorry it's taken me so long to share her cute wobbly walk...between remembering to charge the camera battery, to trying to record the video without a cameo from a cute big sister, to hoping the star of the movie would actually cooperate and's been a real task trying to capture these sweet little steps. Nowadays, Delaney definitely prefers to walk versus crawl but she still stumbles when she gets going or if she's been walking too long. I love watching her waddle with her arms out and her wide leg stance. She's just the cutest!
