let me take you back to last halloween … i had just found out that i was totally knockedup and it was the old town boutique district bootique event. imagine the cutest day ever then times it by ten. like any normal pregnant chick, as you somehow make it through the loooonnnnngggg nine months of pregnancy and celebrate birthdays, weddings, holidays and even lazy sundays you cant help but think about how the following year will be when you have a little person to experience and share all these special moments with.
so fastforward to the boutique event last weekend…where my candyfilleddreams of taking my little nugget trick-or-treating around old town were CRUSHED. the hubs and i handmade his cute oh henry! bar costume (his name is henry…get it.). since our worlds are a little insane right now we made the costume the morning of the event. details. henry had his first halloween costume made with love & new parent excitement.
now we had to dress henry in his ahh-mmaazzz-ZING costume. easy, right? nope. henrys least favorite activity is getting dressed/undressed. its really the only time that he will have a full on panny attack. i knew it would be a complete battle and then the hubs somehow had to take a call and left me and bry to get henry dressed. it wasn’t pretty, folks. but thirty short minutes later he was the most adorable oh henry! bar ever. thirty seconds after that we were cutting him out of his handmade with love & new parent excitement costume cause of the hives that were populating and over-taking his face and entire body. by the time we got him out of the costume he was red and puffy everywhere and i was completely crushed. no trick-or-treating for us. henry went home took a nap and was good as new just an hour later and i handed out oh henry! bars to the adorable trick-or-treaters all the while dreaming up what next year will be like...when henrys walking!
