Halloween 2010 actually began last October–I was in my second trimester and was searching for baby necessities online at Target.com.  While clicking on various types of cribs, sheets, nursery decor, etc, another column on the left hand side of the page was whispering to me, “Psst! Ceara! Click here! Click here!” I couldn’t resist: Halloween Costumes.  There, I found some of the cutest ideas for our little baby.  A pea pod?  A whoopie cushion? None seemed good enough, until I came across this:

A tootsie roll?!?!?! PERFECT!!!!  Our little chocolate baby as a piece of chocolate?!  It couldn’t get any better!!  I never ordered it when I first saw it, like I said I would, and 2009 turned into 2010, we had a baby and October was suddenly upon us again!  Yikes, I need to buy his costume!  Thank you, Amazon.com for having exactly what I needed.  And when it came in the mail on Thursday (cutting it close, I know) I was so thrilled that it fit, despite some of the costumer reviews that had me more than a little nervous.  From the moment I put it on him, he didn’t seem to mind–it was just another outfit to him. 

Friday, his daycare had a Halloween celebration in addition to a mini-parade they went on throughout their building.  When I showed up, my little man was dressed, but very sleepy, so when I set him down to take his picture, I got this:

That’s one pissed off tootsie roll!  Once I picked him up, he was his normal, calm, cute self again.  I guess he just needed his mommy.

Halloween itself was not terribly eventful.  We went to the first men’s basketball game of the season and afterwards met some friends for drinks.  The whole day, Donovan was in his costume.  All in all, it was pretty great.  Now I need to start thinking about his costume for next year, where trick-or-treating is a MUST!  Any ideas?
