Something Like Samba

We have discovered that Noah may end up being quite the dancer. He really loves the movie Rio, primarily because of the music and bright colors. And he loves to dance to the music. Even if the movie is not on and you ask him if he wants to watch the birds, he starts flapping his arms around and heads toward the living room. And he does this every day. Samba is it not, but give it time.

Happy Halloween!

Last year, Noah was almost two months old for his first Halloween. We didn't bother with a costume because we weren't taking him out at all. He just hung out with us at the house while we gave out candy. This year, I wanted him in a costume and wanted to take him out.

His Nana bought his dragon costume for his birthday. His Mommy did not take into consideration how much he would grow over two months before he wore it. So you'll notice the sleeves are a little short. But that didn't seem to bother him. We jumped in the car and headed over to see our friends the Howells, who live a couple streets over, and their sweet little flower, Rebekah.

We plopped them down on the floor to snap a few pictures and to my surprise, they were content to just sit there and hang out. Rebekah was fascinated by the shiny wings on Noah's costume. We took our candy from them and headed back home to go to a couple of the houses on our street. Noah didn't really show much interest and let's be honest, he's still too young to understand what's happening anyway. As soon as you put him down, he wanted to wander off. So instead of visiting houses to collect candy, we let  him play for a little while in the cul-de-sac and then headed inside to give out candy. Next year, when he can actually say "Trick-or-treat" and understands a little more of what's going on, we'll try this whole Halloween thing again.
