We had a bit of a meltdown for a few minutes. Then mom picked him up and rocked him and put him in his bouncer and all was golden. He had realized that it was nap time and he wasn't reclined back asleep and he just wasn't going to have any of that nonsense!
And then he helped mom scoop out all of the "guts" and clean the pumpkin out. All of that carving and scooping made us work up an appetite so Denver and I went to the kitchen to make lunch while dad went to work.
He was very helpful!
We made ghostly grilled cheese & tomato soup but Denver opted for milk. Denver needed a nap after all that work, so mom washed dishes and cleaned the kitchen and did some chores while he napped. I got done and he was still napping so I decided to head into the office for a bit to finish up all of our goodies that we were taking to our friends.
Our little pumpkin! He sat there for the longest time and let me take pictures. Unfortunately, all of the ones that he's smiling in he's also looking away. Then we went inside and got dressed and Denver took a few minutes to open his "Treat" from mom and dad. Since he can't have candy - we decided that he needed some goodies.
Then we tried our costume on and took a few pictures! He was all smiles! We drove over to my sister and brother-in-laws house so that he could take pictures with the big kids before they left to go trick-or-treating.
He wasn't as happy the second time around! We left there and went to a friend's house in the neighborhood so we could see their new house and they could see him. He was asleep for awhile but he woke up and he was ready to go home so he got fussy.
He had another meltdown and cried the whole way home. Aunt Mer was there to see him when we got home so he had a bottle and visited with her and he was all better.
