It was a gorgeous day yesterday, so I took Calder to a local park where he had a blast playing on the slide! He must have climbed up and slid down 15 times before he got tired of it. He was very proud that he could do it all by himself! And while he was climbing up the first time, he very diligently cleaned off all of the leaves that were on the steps.
This video isn't the best quality -- I took it using my cell phone. And, since I can't figure out how to upload the videos from our camcorder, this will have to do for now!

So, the other night, he stood at the bottom of the stairs and signed 'please'...
He then took a step up and signed 'bath'! I was so in awe of how well my baby was communicating with me!
And how could I not oblige when he asked so adorably and politely!?
Only problem is...he now asks adorably and politely SEVERAL times a day! He truly is a water baby! So, we've decided to sign him up for his 2nd swim class this winter. Can't wait!

Here's Calder reading a ghost story before heading out to trick-or-treat!
It did not take him long to get the hang of trick-or-treating! He would walk right up to the door and hold out his little bag for his goodies!
First trick-or-treat! We just took him around to the neighbors in our cul-de-sac. They adored him! And it was a great opportunity for us to meet many of our new neighbors!
Back at home, Calder checks out his goodies! Calder is too young for candy, so mommy and daddy have some treats to enjoy!
Mommy, this 'cracker' is for you! Yes, Calder considers many foods to be 'crackers'. He literally pulled out each item from his bag, held it out, and said 'cracker!' :)
Calder was quite the gentleman as he rowed the boat for Amelia, the Redskins cheerleader. (Daddy shouldn't worry -- I don't think it's a serious relationship!) Amelia seems to be enjoying the ride!
