Halloween was bittersweet for me this year, I love Halloween, I always have, and was so so looking forward to it this year, because I had my little girl to take out and enjoy it with!! Unfortunately things did not quite turn out the way I had planned, the Wednesday before I had surgery, gall bladder removal, and a small lump in my back to be removed as well. If I would have only had the gall bladder done I would have been able to take McKelle Trick or Treating, but with both I was still to much in pain to be able to, it broke my heart I wanted to so bad! Luckily her daddy was able to, and she was able to get her little pumpkin bucket quite full! And she was absolutely adorable in her elephant costume!!! Here's to next year!!!

There really is no expressing how much I love this little girl, and how much everyday I look forward to spending all my time with her and watching what new things she'll do that day. There are so many. When she drops something she'll hurry and look at me, throw her hands to her cheeks and make her mouth into the biggest O shape she can make it, sometimes saying uh oh, sometimes just doing the expressions. She has lately learned that she loves spinning around in circles on her own, not caring that she gets dizzy and goes plop after wards, in fact more often then not she'll laugh. She loves putting her things away as long as seconds later she can dump them all out again. She has learned that if she goes into a room and shuts the door, if she knocks, mom will come and get her out again. She LOVES to run, when she sees you coming and she wants to play she'll turn around and run as fast as her little legs will carry her, and I just melt it is so cute! She waves and blows kisses, and loves her belly button, finding it hard to keep her shirt pulled down. When mommy has to say no, she'll plop herself down and grunt...seriously where do they get these things!! She absolutely loves to rearrange my kitchen now that she has learned to open cupboards and drawers (good thing we already had the ones we wanted kept shut child proofed), she takes out all the bowls, and from the drawers, the towels and potholders, and then when she sees me coming to come save my kitchen, she takes off running with them in her hands, and I can't help but laugh. She really is so fun, and my world!

My little girl is getting soooo big. She was taking small steps before her birthday, but the day after her birthday her little cousin Adalene who is 10 walked all over the place with her only holding one hand. It seemed to make McKelle into a brave sole, because from then on, she has been a walking machine. She takes off on her own and walks everywhere!! It is so incredibly cute, she still mostly has her hands up in the air, to help with balance. The only thing she hasn't quite mastered is getting herself back up off the floor, she'll have to crawl somewhere to get her up, and then from there she will just take off and walk again...what a great birthday milestone for her! I do love watching her learn new things!
