Halloween and more

For Halloween, Walt was a whoopie cushion...utterly appropriate since he makes the same sound effects. Kudos to Mike for scoring this um, unique, costume online.

We had quite an eventful evening. First, a couple from our playgroup who live near us hosted a little party at their house. Then we met up with our nanny-share friends, the Stenbergs, to walk the babies around the neighborhood in their costumes.

Walt unfortunately didn't really understand the significance of his first Halloween...nor did he properly appreciate all the attention he was getting for his costume.

We had heard that Belvedere Street in our neighborhood was one of the best Halloween experiences in the city, so we wandered over. We were totally unprepared for the magnitude of Halloween festivity we found there. The street was packed, everyone (parents included) was in costume and all the garages were full of people acting out scary scenes. These people were putting on fully-costumed routines from Madagascar (the movie, not the country) in their windows.

These people set up a toddler dance club in their driveway.

And, of course, there were interesting costumes.

All in all a fun night.

Here are a few pics of our little Bears fan...

...and a few more randoms...

And because, really...who gets tired of a chubby baby sticking his feet in his mouth?

Walt and Hannah

Our nanny sent us this picture yesterday of Walt with Hannah, his nanny-share friend. I think he just might be a ladies' man.
