I don't know whether to call Mia's first Halloween a success.... or not a success. Our morning started out great!! Mia was in the happiest mood when she got out of bed! We played hard and then I made her a festive breakfast. She ate oranges and pumpkin pancakes (with homemade cinnamon syrup, who am I?) but then things started going down hill :(
Mia's top two teeth have been cutting through this past week and it's been kind of awful, poor baby! Nap time didn't last long and then I was running too many errands and she couldn't get a good nap until late afternoon. Of course she wore her costume all day but it's safe to say that she wasn't cooperating for pictures (I don't blame her!) BUT she did loooooove to look at herself in the mirror, ha ha!
We celebrated that night by eating dinner with friends and trick or treating at their door :)
I admit that I only thought of doing this for picture's sake (oooooh the blogger in me, it's kind of horrifying) but Mia LOVED picking out a treat! She picked one (such a good girl), checked it out, put it back and picked a different one :) And then it made me kind of sad that we didn't take her trick or treating to a few more homes (but I'm over it. She won't remember and I won't be stuck eating all of her candy. Oh wait... yep, I'm still regretting it!) but next year will be SO much fun to take her door to door :)
We love our little lady-love bug SO much (and can't wait for her darn teeth to stop making her feel cruddy)!!
