Last week was a busy one. In addition to all of the Halloween prep (i.e., me eating the Halloween candy we had already purchased and having to buy more), Ben was in San Antonio Monday through Wednesday, Nolan turned 18 months old and we had our fifth wedding anniversary.
Here's the little nugget rolling around on the guest bed upstairs. How he got up there, I will never know. He's always into something these days. The word used to describe him most is cute. After that - busy. Fortunately on this occasion, I got off the computer to see what he was doing and he didn't have time to injure himself.
We had a fall festival in our neighborhood on Sunday afternoon. Here Nolan is riding a pony. He didn't make it all seven times around. But I think he enjoyed it.

I guess he was looking for something in particular in the candy bucket. The best way to find that. Dump all of the candy on the floor. Still didn't find what he was looking for...probably something sugary with an extra kick of caffeine.

We did do some trick-or-treating. We only went to about 10 houses and took the wagon with us. Nolan did some running up and down the sidewalk and was rarely still enough to let anyone put candy in his pumpkin. He also through the pumpkin on the ground at least 10 times sending candy everywhere. We decided on the shark costume because we call him Sharkbite or Little Chompers (among many other nicknames). Adorable.

His last stop on the candy tour was Mimi & Poppy's house. Not content with just getting candy, he figured he would turn it into a geography lesson...thus the globe. He's finally calling it a globe and not a ball.

Then we came home and got our bath. Sunday was a busy day. But on the bright side, he was only up once last night around 3 a.m. (down from the 4 and 5 times a night on Thursday and Friday).

This week we have our well-baby visit. I'm hoping for some resolve with a couple of issues he's been having. And of course, getting those stats. Wonder if they can do a percentile on busy-ness?
