Catching Up

Some more pictures to enjoy.

Pippa never lets me put her hair up. But decided that Louise -- the librarian that she loves -- liked pigtails, legwarmers, and sunglasses so she put on this outfit for her. I think Louise needs to come to our house and help her dress.

The girls enjoying books separately, together.

Crawling and Acrobatics

Here are a few more videos of the girls.

Rowan Walking

So Rowan took her first unsupported single steps on her birthday a few weeks back. Yesterday she started really stringing a bunch of steps together for actual walking.
Here's the video evidence:

Halloween was great. Pippa wore last year's dragon costume, and Rowan was a frog because she grew out of the bumblebee costume we were going to stuff her into. We went to a couple of Halloween parties, and trick-or-treated in our new neighborhood. Both girls had candy for the first time, really, and as Pippa has such a stash still I fear she thinks candy is now a daily activity :(

The frog that ate Rowan

Rowan, in what seems to be a growing theme, trying to get at the liquor.

Rowan's true nature comes out. This was James' costume -- which instead of scaring the girls makes them both laugh. They both insisted on wearing the mask throughout Halloween, and it's still kicking around the living room because they like to model it throughout the day.

Every other week, Pippa has show-and-tell at school. Of course, they had a Halloween theme. This is what she wanted to bring -- one of our Halloween decoration bats with some plastic spiders. When I put these on the show-n-tell shelf, I noticed all of the other items kids' brought in were things like a plastic jack-o-lantern, a stuffed marshmallow-looking ghost, a princess hat from a costume. Oh.
