I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy and safe Halloween!!! It was Lincoln’s first Halloween and we dressed him up as a dragon (this was Jr’s costume from last year) and Jason Jr went trick-or-treating as HULK! Halloween is my favourite holiday and we had a lot of fun doing things with the kids this year. I am REALLY looking forward to taking both of the boys out trick-or-treating next year because by then Lincoln will be able to actually join in on the fun.
We carved some pumpkins earlier this week and Junior had fun playing with all of the pumpkin guts, maybe next year he can pick a design to put on the pumpkin. This was something that was fun for the whole family. My sister came with her boyfriend, my mom came with her long time friend and this was Jason’s first time carving a pumpkin EVER!!! I couldn’t even tell you the last time that I carved a pumpkin, I seriously don’t remember (which is noticeable in our final product haha)
Some people looked at me a little bit weird this year when I was out with HULK. Do you think he is too young to take out? I figure that if I choose to let my boy have some chocolate and candy then that is my prerogative and other parents shouldn’t judge. I saw a couple tonight who took their baby (probably a couple of months older than Lincoln) out trick-or-treating and I thought it was cute!! We all know that the candy is for them and not the baby, but why should anyone try to take away a new parents joy from celebrating a first holiday with their child??
Anyway, I hope everyone had a great Halloween with friends and family!
p.s. I will remember to NOT give either of my boys candy before bed…and this pic will be my reminder…
First I would like to say thank you for taking the time to read my blog again! I know it had been a long time (4 months) since I have posted anything but I have been spending my days getting to know my beautiful baby boy, Jason Jr.
Everyone tells you that the time flies when you have a baby but honestly I had no idea that it would go by this fast. We have been through countless onsies, diapers and shoes that already no longer fit him! I look at him today and wonder already where the time has gone. He went from a very sleepy (and SO WELL BEHAVED) newborn to a very active happy baby. All of the milestones that he will reach within the next year are completely exciting and I can’t wait to share them with you. So far, the milestones that he has reached have been lifting his head up very well during tummy time (he has always been good at this), holding his own bottle, sitting well on his own, grabbing his feet, teething, etc. I love that every day he surprises me with something new and I can’t wait to share them all with you!
Today was his first Halloween!! He was dressed as a dragon today and I have to admit I thought he looked pretty damn adorable! He wasn’t feeling 100% because he had to have his second round of shots today 😦
Oh there he is making some noise, so I will update you later! Thanks for reading!
