baby's first halloween

Today was a great day. G went back to sleep at 4:30 ON HIS OWN until 6:45, with the help of Mr. Squishy the seahorse. We had chocolate-chip pancakes. G was in a great mood except one meltdown which resulted in a nap, but he napped great all day. We went to the zoo for an hour and a half because G actually fell asleep right after we took pictures. Lots of pictures were made of G's Halloween costumes.

All in all, rather good, I'd say.

Since we'd never pass up the chance to dress our baby up in costumes, we did three separate Halloween outfits. Why? Because that's how we roll. Here are my favorite shots in all their cuteness. I really can't stand how cute he is sometimes - makes my heart melt.

The first set was taken at the zoo. The costume was given by my mum. It was entirely too big for him, but that just added to the adorable factor. And yes, he's in front of the actual meerkat exhibit. He was really complacent during this, but mainly, he nommed on his costume.

He was rather in awe of things around us, people and such, so it was difficult to get him to look at the camera.

The only shot where he looked at me. Silly baby! Let mama see your face.

 After the zoo, we came home and ate and napped. Well, he napped. Later that afternoon, we went into the front yard for a little more dress-up. We'd bought him a pirate outfit for our annual pirate party, but hadn't taken many photos of him in it.


I dare you to take away my sword.

Give me your booty or I will cut you! (Yes, he's really holding the sword and pointing it at the camera.)

 After that, it was time for the Katamari hat. Now, Katamari Damacy is a series of video games where you control a little dude who rolls a ball around. The ball picks up anything it touches, gradually building into a larger ball. It sounds like the most boring game in the world, but I assure you it's extremely addicting. The little person you control looks like this.
My friend Stacey made me a hat for G before he was born. I'd been waiting to put it on him when he could sit up a bit better. It's seriously the most awesome hat in the world (and also tasty). Observe.

What is this thing on my head, Mama? 

Are you sure it doesn't look funny? Does it really make me look cute?

Yay, I'm cute!

Hey, Daddy, I'm cute!

I want to be the Katamari Damacy prince when I grow up.


  1. I'm very concerned for G. I really don't think he gets enough attention... lol

    Love the costumes, by the way! He's too cute!

  2. Haha, my goal in life is to spoil this baby rotten with LUV.
