Mia's first Halloween


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)!!

Awwww her costume is so cute! You are right, she won't remember it so no need to stress out :)!

Love her costume!

Laurie @ Disney 'n Diapers said...

SO cute! Savanna didn't even get out of her stroller last night so the Halloween costume was kind of a waste except for pictures. Not like she can eat candy anyway but we had to take her big brother trick or treating! Have a great weekend Courtney!

Such a cute little lady bug :)

Sooo cute! I'd say Mia's first Halloween was a success. That's just the way it is with kids. I often have these holidays/moments built up and they just don't quite turn out like I imagined. But that's okay because there's always next time and if the kids are happy, I'm happy.

Cutest lil bug ever!! Seriously obsessed! And teething is the WORST. I hate how it put them in pain- and in bad moods. But Mia still looks happy, and like a trooper!

Katie said...

she is SOOO cute!! what a great picture of the three of you! i had intentions of all three of us dressing up and it just didn't happen. i know it would only be for a picture as she definitely wouldn't remember, but still a little disappointment. next year though!

What a cutie!! Halloween with a baby is so much more fun! Our little pumpkin was too little to go out but I couldn't help but think of next year when she'll be old enough to walk around and collect candy for her mama! :)

What a cute little Ladybug!! The pictures are all that count for the first year! Don't worry.. next year will be much more fun!!

Brittany said...

I know I sound like a broken record, but she is TOO CUTE! I love her costume! If you're still regretting not trick-or-treating, most of the candy will probably be half-off at the store today! That's where I'm headed...

Ashley said...

Mia is the cutest little Lady Bug! I totally took Matix trick or treating last year(he was 9 months), just for the pictures. I am right there with ya!

Such a cute little lady bug!!! We didn't do a thing for Halloween, so don't feel bad that you only went to one house.

Pegster said...

Halloween day was seriously my favorite this year, seeing all the pictures of kids in their costumes on my feed was awesome.

She is so adorable in that ladybug outfit.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving some sweet comments

Mia is adorable!! No worries; you'll have plenty of Halloweens to go trick-or-treating. I think you did the best thing--you avoided a meltdown, which is sure to happen if she's been getting her teeth in and not napping. My little guy (five) was so tired after school that we only went to about 10 houses or so; then he whined until we finally agreed we should go home... I love Mia's costume!

Janna Renee said...

Awwww still sounds like a success to me! Poor thing, though. I know teething sucks!

Faith said...

Ugh, teething. I'm sorry. She still looked absolutely adorable in her costume. Next year she'll have an idea of what's going on and it will be more fun.

Traci@TheHallway said...

Oh my goodness how cute is she!!!! Happy first Halloween sweet girl! Can't wait to start following you!
