We couldn't actually treak-or-treat when we arrived at Mimi's house because Walt was a little fussy, but once he had had some milk and graham crackers to eat, he "happily" got into his costume to get some candy! Can you believe he is already eating graham crackers? My mom is so good at helping me to let go and give him the next type of food. I always get so nervous! But really, he can eat just about anything now! He is cutting four upper teeth, and it is obvious that it hurts!
Walt is a fun happy kid, but his "off" days seem to land on the days we wish he would be in his fun mode so that he could enjoy the fun! He just had a different kind of fun. For the longest time he did not like the outside, fisher-price swing, but he decided on this particular night that he LOVED it and laughed the entire time!
One of the things that my mom has done with our family is have traditions, and on Halloween each year they make a big pot of Chili and everyone comes over to eat. It is just another way that she gives us time to reunite before the younger kids go do their on thing. (Other traditions include: red beans and rice on Superbowl night, blueberry muffins and chocolate milk while watching Thanksgiving parade)
