sittin' up

Kaiden started sitting by himself a few days ago. He had been balancing for a few seconds by himself for a couple days, then he went outside with dad on Thursday and just sat by himself in the yard for about ten minutes while dad weeded. In fact, Brandon finished weeding and came back inside to have me look out the window and there he sat, perfectly content and just looking around at everything. He absolutely loves being outside. If he's upset we can take him outside and just stand on the porch and he quickly calms down. What a big little guy!

The cutest little pumpkin

What an appropriate costume for a little boy who, along with far too many other nicknames, responds to pumpkin. Lisa and I took Kaiden trick-or-treating on Pearl street. He wasn't old enough to get in on all the fun--although he loved staring at all the other brightly-costumed kids--but mama had fun showing him off...and she also enjoyed eating all his candy for him! It was also a sad day as Kaiden and I took Lisa to the airport and said goodbye. Yes, mama kept the little pumpkin in costume even at the airport--how embarrassing!

Kaiden had a nice picture taken by the Daily Camera Newspaper. You can check it out if you want at Just click on the "munchkin masquerade" link and look in the first gallery.
