Daniel was Yoda for Halloween — pictures forthcoming once I have the time to adjust the file size and such — and I was impressed that he didn’t mess with the Yoda ears/headpiece/hat-thingy while trick-or-treating with his older cousin around my parents’ neighborhood. During the wonderful lunchtime Halloween party hosted by friends in Celina, Texas, Daniel kept pulling off the Yoda hat whenever I would put it on his head.
What everybody noticed was just how big Daniel was getting — taller, slimmer — in his transformation from a toddler to a very young preschooler. Last year’s Halloween picture (when Daniel was in his penguin costume) is very different from this year’s Halloween picture. Last year, the nimbus of babyhood was very much still around him. This year, it’s gone, replaced by a funny, fun-loving, curious little boy.
Yes — I’ll get that photo up… after I catch up on grading! YIKES.
