For her very first Halloween, we dressed Abigail up as a monkey. Since day one, Mike and I have always referred to her as "our little monkey" for a handful of reasons so we felt that this costume was very fitting. Even better, we can eventually reuse it regardless of whether our future children are boys or girls - bonus points to us for being frugal!
Since she's really too young to Trick or Treat and she's typically bathed and asleep by 7:30 each night (Trick or Treating here lasts from 6-8 pm), we decided to take her around to visit our families instead.
Here she is before we got her dressed in her costume (LOL at her hair - she had just woken up from a nap in this picture):
Here we are before leaving the house:
Here she is at my parent's house:
And here is our worn out monkey once we got home:
I'm very much looking foward to next year when we can actually take her Trick or Treating. I'm sure she'll have a great time (as will we)!
Oh, and P.S., I was right. Abbey went back to waking up twice last night. CRAP!
