Halloween and more

We had a great night on Halloween with Joshua being Thomas the Tank Engine and Noah being his conductor.  Daylight savings time happened the weekend before so it started to get dark by 6:00 and most of our neigbors were out by then.  Both boys were completely better from their illnesses from the week before.  The weather was absolutely perfect.  Not cold and not too warm - 80s.  I held Noah in my arms and followed Joshua and Steve as they went around trick or treating. 

Noah's first tooth came in Nov. 2  and his second tooth is coming soon.  Joshua's first tooth didn't come in till he was 13 months old and Noah got his at 9 1/2 months!  Noah still is not able to take solid food though, he has a hard time with anything chunky like 3rd stage baby food.  Even small pieces of soft bread or Puffs he starts to gag.  Oh well, I'm going to have to step up my efforts because we have about 2 months before he's 1 years old!  Can't believe it!

Last weekend,  Joshua and Noah had 2 birthday parties on Sat., though Noah sat out on the 1st with me and watched the maids clean our house.  This week, Steve had a work class and came home around 9:15 so I was exhausted by the time he came home.  Its always hard putting Joshua to bed because Noah wants to also be held at that time. 
Today, we went to the new HEB Lakeline store that we've been patiently waiting on.  Joshua had also slowly watched the construction and it was fun to tell him we were finally going to shop there.  This evening we all went to eat at Contigo in east Austin, a fun outdoor tapas restaurant.   I interrupted a taping of a new HGTV show there while trying to park Noah's stroller. LOL!

Here are some pics of Halloween:
