Baby’s first Halloween was actually very low key. After saying goodbye to Auntie Christine, we relaxed at home for the rest of the afternoon. When it got dark, we decided to take Paolino trick or treating around the neighborhood. So we bundled him up in the darling bear outfit that JoJo sent and took him out.
JoJo is, of course, my mom. She wanted a special name that the baby could call her. And we decided that “Grandma” does not fit. (My parents are still in their 40s, and I don’t think they are ready for the ‘G’ word!) My parents will be JoJo and PopPop; Giuseppe’s parents will be Nonna and Nonno to the baby.
Back to Halloween. We didn’t so much trick or treat, as we mostly just strolled around the neighborhood and chatted with the neighbors. It was actually an enjoyable little evening out. I imagine next year will be a lot more fun for our little guy! But was he ever cute this year!
