William’s first Halloween – did you expect a different post for today? 😉 Come on, now! Even though we celebrated Halloween last weekend with my family, I was still excited for William to wear his costume on actual Halloween.
Just the cutest little pumpkin I ever did see! Since he obviously couldn’t wear his costume to school, I dressed him in this adorable pumpkin outfit we received as a gift:
And look how this big boy is sitting up all by himself!
The teachers always dress up at school on Halloween and we try to be creative with our costumes and tie it into our curriculum somehow. This year, we tied it into Social Studies – I was Sacagawea and my teammates were Lewis and Clark!
We were trying to reenact a real scene from Missouri’s early settlement. 😉
My costume came from my grandma who dressed up as a Native American some time ago for Halloween. She kept this fabulous suede outfit which turned out to be perfect for Sacagawea!
Of course Sacagawea was babywearing – you know I loved that! All day long, my students asked me why I didn’t bring Baby William and said they hoped he wouldn’t get jealous I was wearing a different baby…
Random side note: You know I love Water Wipes. They’re the only wipe I’ll allow to touch William’s bottom because they contain 99.9% water and 0.1% fruit extract. I didn’t put any face paint on William, but if I did, I would have been totally comfortable using Water Wipes to remove any makeup. I do use Water Wipes to wipe him down if I’m about and about. Or if he pees on Audrey while she helps change his diaper (this happened over the weekend – HILARIOUS!). If I need to wipe my hands or clean his binky while we are out, I grab a Water Wipe from the diaper bag. They really are the most gentle wipes and can be used on anyone from parents to kids to babies!
Back to Halloween. In the evening, we went to one of my friend’s houses.
The mommas and our babies. Wolf was an adorable lion, Carly was a sweet bee, and William’s pumpkin costume was overtaking him. They rode in a wagon to trick-or-treat (for about ten minutes!).
It was the cutest thing ever; they were all wedged in there. It was a bit chilly, so we didn’t last long. Towards the end, William was getting tired and I caught a super cute sad face on camera!
But more times than not, he was his usual happy baby self!
We decided this was the beginning of a tradition that must happen every year. Crazy to think how quickly time has flown and will continue to fly; next Halloween, they’ll all be walking (running)! That’ll be a whole new ballgame!
What’d you do for Halloween? Trick or treat? Party? Pass out candy?
Linking up with Healthy Diva for Marvelous in my Monday!
