Video taken at 7AM...

Miles's first Halloween was fantastic! As you can tell from the picture below, he had the stone cold Mummy face down (it is his "you are taking a picture of me, so I will look like a deer in the headlights" pose). He wore his Mummy outfit and carrot hat (that we pretended to be a pumpkin hat) for the day at the ELC, and then we put him in the legit pumpkin costume from Grandma and Opa for a brief photo shoot.

Full spread here.

  1. I LOVE the deer in headlights look! What a cute pumpkin!

  2. Very cute (says the insanely prejudiced MomA)! I love the deer caught in the headlights expression. Hey, though, let the kid's hair alone! He can't help it if it wants to stay neatly combed looking. His Grunkle Seth had just such hair when he was an infant, while later as a toddler, he sported the Beatles' bowl cut look which always looked combed, even first thing in the morning. When you try to make it tousle, it reminds me of petting an animal's fur the wrong way - ouch!
    Anyway, Miles grows more and more fun to watch every day. Hugs and kisses.

  3. AHH! We love watching your videos!! he is so adorable. I can't wait until he starts talking...he has the cutest little voice :)
