the velveteen pumpkin

well that's about all! .....all the photos & costumes from davis' 1st halloween : ) as you can see he was all about the treats for the occasion. he is so excited about that chocolate bar and he doesn't even know why yet! i assume its because the wrapper crinkles. and anything that makes little noises is fun to him. he enjoys going to the doctor because they lay out a whole role of paper for him on the examination table. yay! what fun! i get to kick the paper and crinkle it up for a $15 a visit. after 4 visits within the last month, that is one expensive roll of tissue paper.
it's hard to believe that it was just one year ago that we first learned about davis and his upcoming arrival into our lives. it's amazing how much your life can change in 12 short months. (although, THANKFULLY, those 7 long months of nausea & morning sickness seem very distant now.) this time last year, we first saw davis about the size of a grain of rice on a black and white screen. and now, he's a vibrant, vocal and sweet 17.5 lb pumpkin. looking around our house, there are piles of folded baby clothes and more in baskets waiting to be folded, super-sized bulk cans of formula, pacifiers on every table & countertop, a sink full of bottles, bibs here & there, mickey mouse clubhouse on the tv, swings, seats, rattles, lotions, creams and..........well, we wouldn't have it any other way.
doesn't it make you want another one? nope. not quite yet. besides, i've got more spoiling to do on this one.
