I've come to realize that I get more excited for Delaney than she gets when we go places.
For instance, when we went trunk-or-treating earlier in the weekend, I pictured her walking down the line of cars, holding out her elmo bucket while people put candy in her bucket and commented on her adorable costume. She would then say "tank-too" (thank you), which is one of the only words she says.
Instead, she cried as soon as we got out of the car and fell to her diapered bottom and refused to stand up.
We stayed about five minutes and went home.
However, she did have a great time on Halloween, and although she never said "tank-too" she did enjoy about five dum-dum suckers (don't worry-I brushed her five teeth as soon as we got home) and had fun collecting her candy.
The trick-or-treat gang (Mr. H had class)-boo.
