Calder and I finally got around to carving his pumpkin this afternoon. Well, I carved, while he dictated which shapes to use. I tried encouraging him to help take the guts out, but he had no interest in touching them!
Where's his mouth, Mommy?
Posing with the finished product! It was even Calder's idea to give the pumpkin eyebrows!
You may remember Lucky's costume from last year (or was it 2 years ago?) Anyway -- it's a prisoner outfit, that says "Property of the Dog Pound". Calder took one look at it and excitedly said, "Lucky has zebra costume!!!" :)
On Thursday, all of the kids in Calder's daycare center came through our building for a Halloween Parade. It was so cute to see them all dressed up!
The little babies were adorable as they strolled through in the big red buggies!
Here comes Calder! I snapped this picture just as he realized that I was there. He immediately made a beeline for Mommy!
There was no way he was just going to wave and pass on by me, so I ended up walking with him for the rest of the parade. I have to admit, it was pretty fun to show off my cute little turtle to all of my coworkers!

Getting covered in leaves!
Mommy breaks out her old high school jacket and gets in on the fun.
Grandma brought out the box to her new dishwasher for more instant fun!

For comparison purposes, here's a shot of me at 24 weeks pregnant with Calder. Is anyone else alarmed at how much bigger I am this time??? Yikes! I definitely think I am carrying differently this time - not as much out front, and I just feel bigger all around. Perhaps a sign that this baby is indeed a girl??
By the way...how long have I had the exact same hair style?

When we got to the car, I could not get the baby out of the box fast enough -- Calder was dying to hold it. (Yes, it's an "it" since Calder hasn't decided yet if it's a boy or a girl.) When we got home, he carried it with him everywhere, and even sang "Rock-A-Bye Baby" -- which is particularly impressive, since we almost never sing that song to him. He loves his baby so much, I know he is going to make an excellent big brother!

Calder and Sandhya did a great job of holding hands while we walked along -- it was too cute!!
Calder was so excited to see Sandhya -- he chased her around for a good 10 minutes and tackled her with a giant hug at every opportunity.
For some reason, Calder is really into hopping these days. In this shot, I caught him mid-hop as he hopped all over the zoo's pizza play area.
Three little monkeys!
Calder kept swiping the raspberries off of Grandma's cake!
My cousin Jennifer came up from NJ to visit for the day. Calder had a great time with both lovely ladies!
