Your second Halloween was a lot of fun. It sure was much more fun than your first Halloween. You were 7 days old and we spent that weekend in the hospital. You were very jaundiced and it wasn't going away on its own fast enough so you had to spend the weekend in the hospital in a special bed with a light shining underneath you. The light makes the jaundice go away.
Here you are sleeping in your special light bed on Halloween night. It was like your very own cute costume. You look like a beautiful little angel. Mommy and I stayed in the room with you all weekend. We had the room all to ourselves. Mommy and I shared a pullout chair to sleep on.
This is a closeup picture of you in your special bed. You're such a beautiful little baby.We got you a skunk costume for this Halloween. It is pretty cute. It has a heart on the back of it with the name "Lil Stinker" on it. We visited Nana and Grumpy in the morning to show them your costume. You gobbled up some cheezies while we visited, yum, yum!
We stopped by a farm near the cottage to get some pumpkins. The photo above is of you sitting on a hay bale next to a couple pumpkins. After that, we spent the afternoon grocery shopping, etc. We didn't get home until late in the afternoon. You didn't nap all day. You finally were ready for a nap around 5 PM. We had to wake you just before 6 PM so we could put your skunk costume back on and take you out for your first trick or treating experience. We would have liked to let you sleep, but we couldn't let you miss out.
Here you are in the front yard in Mommy's arms just before she took you trick or treating to a few houses in the neighborhood with some of the other neighborhood kids and parents. You were such a tired little stinker sucking your thumb.
You got a few treats on your short walk around the neighborhood. You sure loved the cheezies :) The next two photos are Mommy and I posing with you in your costume on the front step.
We are so glad that you had a fun first real Halloween. Well, it was probably more enjoyable and fun for Mommy and I. You were an adorable little stinker.
I love you big bunches, little stinker!
