First Santa Claus Parade...

Well Sunday we took Nicholas to his first Santa Claus Parade. We packed some food, toys, a couple of chairs and headed out. We wanted to get here a little bit early to make sure that Nicholas would be able to see everything from his stroller. But who knew that when they said the parade was at 2 pm they really meant 2:30 pm. And who also knew that the Milton Santa Claus Parade would be over an hour long?

Well needless to say Nicholas became bored (with over 100 floats, who could blame him). So by the time Santa came he had enough and didn't even pay attention to the float. Nicholas did enjoy all of the bands that went by and seeing all of the kids, so all in all it was a good day. As you can see from the photos Nicholas seemed to enjoy himself.

Eating Spaghetti...

First Halloween...

Well I think that we are one of the few families that didn't dress up their child for their first Halloween. But we did let him stay up a little later so that he could see some of the kids come to the door all dressed up. Nick was very interested in all the kids and every time we took him away from the door he just kept pointing to the door wanting to go back and see more kids. It was a lot of fun watching him react to all the kids dressed up.

Letting Go...

Well for the past couple of months Nick has been walking around various items of furniture not ready to let go and try walking for himself. Well Friday was the first time that he let go and gave walking a try. He let go of the coffee table and tried walking to the stairs. He took about 4 or 5 steps on his own.

Let me tell you from that point on there has been no stopping him. He has now become much braver and is letting go of everything and trying to walk every where. I am now afraid that there will be no stopping him.
