For Harper's second Halloween we decided to dress him up like a skunk. Last Halloween he was only a month old. We bought him a monkey costume but it practically swallowed him up and he HATED wearing it. This year he loved dressing up! He giggled and waddled around in his silly skunk costume. It was the cutest thing I have ever seen! By next year he will probably tell me what he wants to wear...boo!
We decided to take him trick-or-treating. We only went to the houses on our street but it was an absolute blast. Some people think you shouldn't take your baby trick-or-treating. But it is not about getting candy, it is about taking him trick-or-treating for the first time. All of the neighbors loved seeing him in his little costume. And he really enjoyed it. He helped ring the doorbells and laughed at the folks when they opened their doors. It was so much fun. And thanks to Harper's Nana, he tried his first Snickers bar. No, I wasn't there...I would never let him eat a Snicker's bar. But Nana spoils him rotten and thought it was perfectly fine. Apparently he loves Snicker's. He is going to have to wait another year before he tries them again. ;)
I want to wish Harper's sweet Nana, my mom, a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! We are so blessed to be able to spend another year with her. Two years ago we thought we only had 5 more months with her. Each additional moment we get to spend together is such a blessing!
