our little fishie

November 1, 2012

Is there anything better than babies in costumes? I submit that there is not. I’ve been eagerly checking my Instagram feed over and over just to take in all the cuteness.

Halloween evening was somewhat hectic for us, but it worked out. My mother-in-law picked up Meredith from daycare and took her to visit David’s grandmother in the nursing home — in costume of course. She said that Meredith was being a huge show-off in it because everyone was giving her such a good reaction. It took them twenty minutes just to get to Gigi’s room because all the old ladies had to coo over her.

For trick-or-treating we all met at my brother-in-law’s house. My only regrets of the evening are that we didn’t have time to see my parents, and we were unable to get a picture of all four of the cousins together.  (That one was kind of a pipe dream anyway.) We walked down a short street and back, and of course Meredith had no idea what was going on but she was happy to be outside. She just did her own thing and even tried to enter a few houses to explore.

The best part was just watching her toddle with her head down in concentration, as she does. If a fish could walk, it would probably look just like that.

    No, I am not THAT crafty, although I do aspire to be. :) I found it on clearance at Old Navy for $6! Total score.

    From Holly:

    What a cute little fish! It looks odd to me to see her trick-or-treating in bare arms – we took Topher out last night and he had his costume on over his snowsuit. It was -13 and blowing snow but he had fun anyway :)

    How funny — I had to keep pushing the hood down to give Meredith a break because she was so sweaty in there!

    I totally agree…there’s nothing cuter/better than babies in halloween costumes!

    I die from the cuteness. She is ADORABLE. (I’m also slightly envious of everyone in the short sleeve shirts! It was c-o-l-d here on Wednesday night.)
