Ella had fun trick or treating. Emilia, not so much. She didn't really have a great day on Halloween, starting out with her photo shoot grouchiness. She had two short naps, but no long one, and when Emilia gets overly tired, she gets hyper. While we were trick or treating, she didn't really want me to hold her, but she didn't want to walk where I wanted her to. She kept sitting down in the middle of the street to play with rocks. Whenever I tried to carry her, she squirmed and wriggled and screamed bloody murder. I finally took her home early and sent Ella with the Howies and the Goods.
Emilia also didn't cooperate when we tried to have a babysitter watch her during our Halloween party. Emilia wouldn't have anything to do with the high school girl we hired to babysit, so poor Alex got to lug Emilia (all 26 pounds) around all night. We so owe Alex.
