We've been celebrating the whole month of October.
It's easy to be in the Halloween mood when you have so many Halloween outfits.
Aunt Fran sent Millie this darling onesie with a tutu for Halloween. Millie loves to try and eat the tutu. We love her wearing an outfit that doubles as a toy.
She's really starting to enjoy these Barbie pictures.
Let's just say all my effort went into Millie's costume this year.
This was just before my work Halloween lunch. Right after this picture Millie discovered she could eat the feathers.
We altered the feathers a little, and forced her into the costume again for our Halloween party at church.
Halloween was kind of a big deal for us this year. Millie was born Thanksgiving weekend last year, so this was the last of the "Baby's 1st" Holidays. She was too fragile to do much celebrating last Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years.
We had plans to go trick-or-treating at the freshman dorms here at BYU tonight, but Millie had something else in mind. She was in a bad mood a lot of the day Friday, but I excused it to missing all of her naps and overheating thanks to her ultra-warm costume. From midnight to 8 AM Millie woke up at least every two hours screaming her head off. Millie never wakes up more than once a night (which is really rare as well). We tried everything. Feeding her, rocking her, changing her diaper, baby Tylenol, giving her water to drink, and even crying it out.
We spent today inside, accommodating her every wish. Cuddle with Mom while watching Babar? Sure, Millie. Drink your bottle while we hold you? Anything you'd like. We monitored her temperature closely. It went from 99.7 to 100.2. After a great nap it went back to 98.9, and Millie started to be herself again. We still don't see or feel any teeth coming in, so we are pretty sure the little gal is just sick.
So no trick-or-treating for us this year. That's okay. It's not like Millie can even hold her own bag, or eat the candy.
Hope y'all had a great Halloween!
