1st Halloween

Would it surprise any of you to know that I had already bought this Dragon Costume last year? She was still in my belly when I bought this at Target during their After Halloween Sale, 50%-75% off.I had bought the 12 month size thinking she may be a big girl by Halloween. Everyone had warned me about how fast babies grow, but she turned out to be petite. It's too big, but it will keep her warm.She has been trying really hard to stand up on her own. She always sticks her butt up in the air when she is crawling around. She can pull herself up with the crib railings to stand up and she likes to use me or DH for leverage. I swear she is going to walk sooner than I thought.I had to get the Hello Kitty bucket since I am a big fan. It's so cute and it was also 50%-75% off.

We are going to my friends, Jen and Jason's apartment, in Battery Park City for Halloween tonight. Melody will be "Trick or Treating" with their daughter, Veronica. I know that Melody won't understand what is going on, but it's just for the fun experience. Plus, I will get to eat her candy! Happy Halloween!

Not surprised at all! I bet pregnant women would buy lots of things in advance ... just be glad that some of those stuff finally got to be used! LOL!
I'm sure Melody had no idea what is going on ... but that doesn't mean she couldn't have a good time, right? Happy Halloween.
