November, Already!

Yesterday was Halloween. E was Spiderman and M was a Tootsie Roll, so cute! We went trick or treating, and En got lots of loot. One house scared E pretty bad, almost to the point of not wanting to go trick or treating anymore, shameful. When they opened the door there was a big scarey guy with a chainsaw. E stood there for a few seconds then screamed and ran back to us. The really sad part was that they were looking out the window and saw that it was just a little boy, but did it anyway. These are the kind of things that make A hate Halloween.

Another fun thing, M turned 6 months old on Sunday. I can't believe that he is that old already. He's sitting up all by himself, and he's starting to push himself up on his hands an knees, wanting to crawl. I have mixed feelings about this. One being that I don't want him to be mobile yet, that other being that it would be nice for him to be able to entertain himself a little better. We gave M vegetables for the first time on Monday, green beans. He H-A-T-E-S them! Not just, eww, that's not very yummy, I mean gagging, shuddering, that is the most vile thing I've ever had in my mouth kind of hatred. Of course, being the compassionate mother I am, I laughed every time he would shudder. He's had it once a day since Monday, not very much, just enough to make sure that he's not allergic to it. We'll move onto peas tomorrow, hopefully that will go over better.
