Happy Halloween everyone! It is James's first Halloween, and to celebrate we dressed him up like a bee and went over to our friend's house for dinner and trick-or-treating. James also turned 19 weeks old yesterday, so we took some pics of him in his costume to celebrate (there are more in the Fifth Month album if you need more pics!):
During the day today we carved the pumpkin we had gotten from the pumpkin patch.
Then we went over to Mark and Jenny's house this evening to eat a feast of pumpkin-shaped pizza, macaroni and cheese, and hot dogs. They dressed their 1.5 year old son Henry up like Sherlock Holmes.
And, after a photo shoot, we went trick-or-treating! James was pretty tired so we only went to a couple houses.
We had a great time, and James was especially good this evening. He didn't fuss at all even missing his evening nap. He also was ridiculously cute in his bee costume!
He hasn't done anything particularly new this week except laugh a bit more and be able to support himself better in his upper torso. He's also grasping things and bringing them to his mouth more and more (which means we have to watch what is near him to grab!). We've been enjoying playing with him and watching him roll over more often. :-)
So now the "holiday season" has officially started, and as I heard the radio station I usually listen to play Christmas songs today (instead of Halloween ones), I almost started to hyperventilate. I'm not ready for Christmas, because at Christmas James will be 6 months old! Oh my goodness! It's just going way too fast...
Oh well. Happy Halloween!!
