This weekend was Three Dog Bakeries annual Growl-O-Ween. Basically, for $10 you can compete in a dog costume contest and then trick or treat stores on the Country Club Plaza with your dog.
Since Robert is a dragon this year, Harley was the fair princess. They took 2nd place in their division.
Here is Harley in all her princess glory.
They had a treat bowl on the registration table and Robert loved sneaking over and getting treats for Harley.
Then he would make her sit before he would give it to her.
Harley did really good with the trick-or-treating. She got a bag full of doggie treats and we were all worn out that afternoon.
Now I need to decide what we are going to do on Halloween. Robert felt punky all weekend so Jim stayed home with him today and took him to the doctor. We got some anti-biotics to try to stay on top of whatever is causing all his snottiness and a cough medicine so hopefully he will sleep better. I’m not sure if I want to go to any big Halloween things where there are a lot of kids with all the crap that’s going around right now. We’ll just have to see. The good news is Robert and Jim got their H1N1 vaccine today. Hopefully I can get in Saturday morning and get mine.
I’m so proud of this little man. He’s growing up to be a pretty sensitive little fellow. Robert’s preschool is an inclusive preschool, so they have children with disabilities and typically developing kiddos in the same classrooms. In Robert’s current class there is a little fellow who is non-ambulatory and non-verbal. Apparently at music time today the kids were all told to go pick out the instrument they wanted. Robert chose an instrument for his friend, turned it on and put it in his lap and then went and chose an instrument for himself. My kid… the one who went to the quiet corner twice today for not waiting his turn… he’s growing up and making me proud.
On Saturday we had Robert’s family party at Aunt Barb & Uncle Ward’s house. Granny and Bob & Sherry Welch came too. We had a really good time. He is so loved. I am so lucky.
You know it’s a good day when he is this tired when we got home.
Last Friday we went to have Robert’s two year old portraits done. He was busy! Luckily Meredith took her time to let him warm up to her and we got some great expressions… except he looks so old!!!
Wow… my little guy is two… I can hardly believe it. We have really been partying it up around here in celebration. Tonight it was our celebrating just the three of us. Robert got to open his gifts and had a special cupcake all to himself.
He started in the two year old room at preschool today. He has been ready to move over there forever! This morning was so easy. Instead of him wanting me to hold him and stay he walked into the room, turned to me and said “bye mama!”. I’ll take that over him crying for me to stay any day!
