Baby's First Halloween

The first year of a baby's life is filled with so many "micro" milestones. Every time I turn around, I feel like little miss Morley is doing something new. From baby's first smile and laugh to baby's first taste of food, and even baby's first holidays, celebrating each and every milestone is exciting and something we've grown to love. This past week, we celebrated baby's first Halloween.

First and foremost, it wouldn't be Halloween without some pumpkin carving! With the help of my sister who was home visiting, we carved the pumpkins that we had picked at the local patch earlier in the month. Morley of course was more interested in rolling around in the guts and then eating them than the actual carving part.

On a side note, can we talk about about my chihuahua Titus for a second? Look at him in this picture, just lurking in background like a little creep.

Ok, now back to the cuteness overload...

And now the photo that pretty much sums up Morley's first pumpkin carving experience. So determined, yet so mad.

It's all fun and games until someone starts eating the pumpkin guts...

Since Morley is a little too young for the traditional trick-or-treating excitement the night of, we instead visited Ripley's Aquarium with some friends and their kids for the Aquarium's yearly Gills & Ghouls event.

Morley and dad dressed up as unicorns, and I got to fulfill my lifelong dream of being the Little Mermaid.

And finally, on the night of Halloween, we hung out at Grandpa's house. Morley visited a few of the neighbours, but was quite content just watching all of the kids in their costumes.

Is that not the cutest little unicorn you ever did see?!

Happy November!
