I wasn't sure how Grace would react from getting candy from strangers. She tends to be very cautious with new people and new experiences, but she did fine. She didn't like when people put the candy directly in her bag; she preferred people hand her the treat so she could put it in her own bag.
We compared our babies to the size of a baby gorilla.

Grace thinks Lydia should do what Grace does all the time. Whether it is eating a snack, reading books, walking, or playing with toys. Lydia loves the attention and goes with the flow. Lydia is standing as long as she is holding onto a toy or furniture. She is also crawling everywhere. One would think that our house is already baby proofed, but I seemed to forget how much our babies enjoy playing in the dog's dish and trying to chew on cords.
Earlier this year we had converted Grace's crib into a toddler bed by removing one side and lowering the mattress as low as it went. We have since moved Grace into a big bed since she was seeming a little bit crowded. I think her favorite part is that there is more room for her stuffed animals.

Lydia is very close to crawling. She's can pull herself up holding on to some one's hands. Even as she is right now, she's capable of moving about a room to get what she wants. But the surest indicator or what we call the sign of the Apocalypse is her rocking:
She's quite proud of herself:
At the pumpkin patch, Grace and Lydia stuck their heads through many silhouette cut-outs of witches, ghouls and ghosts. We also found a couple of great pumpkins for our festivity display.
