I’m just dropping in with a quick post today to share some of the ridiculous cuteness that was Jack’s first Halloween. I am so not in a place in my life to be DIYing a costume, so I picked this one up for $5 off my facebook moms’ swap group.
I totally thought he would reject the hat. He did protest a bit at first, but then suddenly people were singing and dancing and snapping pictures of him and all was right with the world. Unless it fell down over his eyes–he doesn’t understand object permanence yet so if the hat goes over his eyes it’s like the whole world just disappeared! You can see why that might be terrifying.
Nick and I usually spend Halloween on our front porch handing out candy and surreptitiously drinking beers, but since we have a kid now we felt like we should be doing something a little more exciting. We decided to not be those people bringing their infant door-to-door to collect candy and head to our friends Cassie and Nic’s house instead. Bonus: Cassie has a better phone than me so I got a not-grainy picture of my babe in costume.
Of course, he’s used to a pretty early bedtime so he spent most of the night like this. So much for tigers being nocturnal.
The downside to not hosting trick or treaters at my house: there’s no leftover candy today! I should probably be grateful for that, considering I’d love to lose about twenty pounds. But I just feel like I really need some chocolate right now, haha.
