Leo’s First Halloween

This post is only two weeks late. That’s pretty good.

I took a mini stay-cation to prepare for Leo’s first Halloween, first birthday party, first birthday and first haircut.

First up was Halloween.

I am sure it is normal to take forever to decide what your baby’s first costume is going to be. I searched and searched and sent Joey a ton of choices. Here are a few:

Lion since he is named Leo.

I thought this skunk was so stinking cute!
Joey said it was a girls costume and it was sold out at the time.

Thought about a monkey since I have always called him my alien love monkey. I have no idea why.

There were a bunch more with Joey vetoing everything. Finally we compromised on a dinosaur.

The day before Halloween we took him to the Clayton Pumpkin Patch; last year we went I was HUGE as a house pregnant.

Such a great place to take kids for picking out pumpkins.

We dressed Leo up and let him go find the perfect one.

Then he lost his mind and ripped the head piece off.

It was very warm and Leo was sweating in his costume so we took it off and snapped a couple of more shots.

This one is my favorite of that bunch. Kid is representing his home team and looking all gangsta while doing so.


On Halloween we went Trick or Treating with friends of ours and their two daughters.

Leo had way too much fun and passed out half way through. Didn’t stop Joey from filling up his bucket though. 😉


Hope your Halloween was awesome!
