Happy Friday before Halloween! I’m inordinately excited about this Halloween because we’ve banned sugar from the house…but of course that rule won’t apply to Halloween candy collected by earnest, hard-working little costumed beggars. From whom I will steal. Yay, candy! I’m actually having visions of mellowcreme pumpkins lure me to sleep at night. Yum. Sunday can’t get here fast enough. And now for quick takes.
|A much younger Sienna, gettin’ friendly with a mannequin|
is not having a good life right now. Not only is she approaching the terrible twos (not an exaggeration, in my experience), she’s also not adjusting well to being the middle child, or to not being allowed to eat sugar, mac and cheese, and pizza, plus she’s teething. She spends her time crying, begging to be held, pointing frantically at the fridge and then throwing whatever she’s given on the floor, and crying some more. It’s making our days very exhausting. On the plus side, she has begun to say a few words. Yesterday she mastered “cold” and “shoe”. I was really proud and relieved…I’ve been worrying about both her tiny stature and her lack of speech progression.
