Happy Halloween!

Tonight was Gloria's first Halloween.

She went to see her grandparents in lieu of trick-or-treating. She looked adorable in her pumpkin costume--the first thing I bought her when I found out I was pregnant last year.

Negligent Mom, Blogger Finally Posts

It's been a very busy month as I have returned to work full-time. Gloria has been busy as well. We had her Baptism almost 2 weeks ago. She fussed a lot during the service, but turned around to face everyone at the end, almost on cue.

I got a big cold last week, which she avoided. During the past 10 days, she's really gotten the hang of laughing. She doesn't do it all the time, though. She's still testing it out. Gloria isn't rolling over yet, but she's really trying. She sleeps either completely through the night or wakes only once to be fed. She seems to like shopping! Marc and I have taken her out together twice and I took her out for a bit on Sunday.

This week, we're trying to teach Gloria about our childhood.

Lazy, Dog-Dangling Afternoon

We spent our Saturday doing as close to nothing as possible. Gloria did wake up at 7AM, but fed and then went back to sleep until 10:30 or so. Later, we all took a nap for a couple of hours in the afternoon. Very nice.

When is this country going to adopt the siesta?

So, I took Gloria out for her first shopping trip yesterday:

As you can see, we hit the Kay-Bee (at Marley Station) and picked up some LEGO. Gloria was really good the whole time. We were there for about an hour, including changing and feeding in the family restroom - which was very helpful, BTW.

I think I need a little more practice driving the stroller, though. I pushed it about half an hour before realizing that one of the wheels was locked.
