The original costume of choice for Baby B was Bam Bam from the Flintstones. How cute would that have been - little boy running around with his baseball bat as he always has. He would have just loved it. Well, when temps were threatening near freezing range, the thought of a half naked baby was just too terrible to imagine. And, if you toss tons of layers under his little Bam Bam costume ... it just wouldn't be cute (or make sense), so ... we pulled out the tried and true pumpkin suit! The good news - it's warm and conducive to layers. And thus, Baby B was a darling pumpkin, hat and all, this year!
When the walkers class finally surfaced, Baby B was proudly walking and holding the hand of one of his teachers. He was so darn cute and all smiles as his adoring fans oggled over the cute littles in costumes. All that was fine and good until he spotted mommy in the crowd. Then, he made a bee line straight for me, which meant that to continue in the parade ... mommy joined the walkers class.
I guess when the baby goes home, he's trying to tell you he's had enough? The child seriously walked (and knew where to cross the street to get home) at least 5 houses with Dear Hubs chasing behind him. When we arrived home and everyone shed layers of coats and costumes, we dined on BBQ chicken pizza and salad. Zsa Zsa and Pops were on hand with a giant pumpkin shaped cupcake for Baby B to enjoy as well. Enjoy he did (and cover everything in orange frosting!)! Once bellies were all full, Baby B called it a night, surprisingly close to his normal bedtime too!
All in all, it was a successful and fun Halloween. Now, onto November for more festive events and fun!
