More enjoying the park.
Here's Rose during a snack break at Couch park on a cold, rainy day.
Rose spent a weekend with Grandma and Grandpa in October while Trevor and I followed the Beavers to Seattle for a game against WSU. We didn't make it to a pumpkin patch this year, but luckily Grandpa had some pumpkin activities planned.
Here is the coolest bike rack in our neighborhood. We walk by it on the way home from daycare and stop to do some driving. Driving is fun, if Rose is the one steering.
For Halloween, Rose dressed up as a lion. She like roaring and discovering what candy is all about. By the end of the day, she was demanding blue M&Ms (though, she calls them cookies). Here are Rose and Trevor on the elevator going to the Schwabe Halloween party. The office halls were decorated for the holiday and most offices had a selection of candy - making for a good trick-or-treating experience (at least for the parents). Rose's favorite treat was a box of crayons and a coloring book. What a great idea!
Here's a happy, super sugared up lion on the walk home from Trevor's office.
Here's the lion trying to steal a bike. It kept insisting "MINE!" and had a hard time understanding that saying "mine" doesn't make it "mine".
Not only is Rose struggling with learning what's "mine" and what is not "mine", she is also working on taking turns, sharing and waiting. A lot of frustrating concepts for a 19 month old!
I'll leave you with a quick bath video. If you look closely, you'll see Rose's mischievous face - she's pretty proud about making her duck blow bubbles.
