Happy Halloween

Kaden is getting ready to hit the town in search of

Here is Kaden showing off his monkey costume.

I think he has had enough of mom taking pictures.

Kaden is looking through all of the candy he collected.

We had a blast taking Kaden trick or treating. This was the first year Nate and I took him out. In the past we went over to grandpa and grandma's to help pass out candy, but this year we decided to let him have the full experience. The plan was to go out with my sister and nephew. However, those plans didn't quite work out since my nephew didn't get a nap and decided once we were out he did not want to trick or treat. So we borrowed my nephews candy bag since we didn't bring one for Kaden, we were not planning on collecting any candy since he won't eat it. We were thinking that Kaden going to the door and getting candy my entice my didn't. So my sister and Miles went home. Kaden enjoyed going to the first house so Nate and I decided to take him to a few more houses. Well, Kaden was having a blast and we ended up trick or treating the whole two hours. He was so cute. Nate and I would take a very excited, squealing Kaden to a door and he would get his bag from me and hold it open for the candy. After receiving the candy he would sign "thank you" and wave bye-bye. After a few houses he had his routine down and didn't need our reminders to say thank you or bye. He even started saying "thank you" all the way up to the doors.

There were a few home owners who wore the scary masks. The first one we went to, Kaden had big eyes and was just staring at him. Nate, the homeowner, and myself were laughing so I guess Kaden decided that it was funny too, and began to laugh himself. So the rest of them that he saw he thought were pretty hilarious. I even overheard one mom telling her little girl who was probably in the 4th grade or so that "that little baby is up there, you should be able to go up there." Kaden had a ton of admires, including a 4 year old little girl. She came up to Kaden and began to rub his cheek and hold his hand all the while telling him how cute he was. This lasted for about 3-5 minutes and then Kaden had enough and began to wave bye-bye to her. Nate and I were so excited that Kaden seemed to have a blast and can not wait to take him next year. He did so well and was excited throughout the whole thing. Our next tackle will be to try and get a picture with Santa Claus. That one is still a maybe, it is just during the sickest time of the year so we will see. Our luck, Kaden will probably be more scared of Santa Claus than he was of the scary masks.


Mom to Rhett said...

Hi there. I came across your blog from Micah's blog. I just wanted to tell you that Kaden is an absoulte doll.

I have a little guy Rhett who has Down Syndrome, and through reading your blog the last few days has had alot of the same medical complications that Kaden has had.

Rhett was born with the hole in his diapragham, but it was not discovered until he was 16 months old and the intestines finally pushed through. He had the surgery and we are now monitoring him once a month with chest xrays to make sure the patch dosen't pop.

His is due to the repair being weakend by chest compressions from being overdosed and coding....LONG story....But anyways I just wanted to stop by and say hi and say what a cute little guy you have.

Rhett was that same monkey for Halloween..picts on my blog!! Thanks for sharing him!!!
