Happy Halloween!

It’s Henry’s first Halloween, so of course we had to dress him up and take him out!


Here’s our little horse (donkey), who amazingly had a second nap for the first time in at least a month so he was in a good mood to play along and wear his costume the whole time. Even the head!


Nick left work early so we could take him to Flying Squirrel for their Halloween party. There were so many little kids dressed up and it was adorable.


This Ghostbuster mom and her Stay Puft Marshmallow baby were my favourites.

I can’t believe a year ago today, I went into labour with Henry. I spent my Halloween eating a sub, dealing with contractions as they got stronger, and hanging out with my doula, Aimee, til we had to go to the hospital. What a difference a year makes.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Happy Friday! Do you guys have any awesome Fall weekend plans? My brother and his wife are in town so Nick and I will be meeting up with them. We’ll also be waiting for Henry to decide to arrive! It would be great if my brother’s trip coincided with him coming, but we’ll just have to wait and see what happens…

Here’s what I’ve been enjoying this week online (besides last-minute labour and newborn care articles):

This dog will only ride in a car if you’re holding his paw.

19 Idiotic, but completely real, travel complaints.

I guess I have these to look forward to :\

Amazing kids’ Halloween costumes that they’re too young to understand.

This guy’s Halloween costume efforts put us all to shame.

Laughing at people freaking out at a haunted house is the best.

Tomorrow I’m flying to Toronto to spend 10 days in Canada, all in the name of one of my best friends, Julia.

Julia and I met for the first time in 2004. I knew right away she was a keeper from her sense of humour alone.

We have since had parties…


Karaoke nights & food fights…


Halloween costumes


(Yes, that’s Julia dressed as a worm with a bottle of gin in her lap)

Heart to hearts & so many laughs…


And thank goodness, visits back and forth from Toronto to New York.


Julia is one of the best people I know. I’m so lucky to be able to stand up for her in her wedding on September 8 when she marries Jay, the perfect man for her.


I’m also fortunate to watch her get silly this weekend at her bachelorette cottage party, where there will be many more funny photos to come (if you’re lucky, internet!)


I love you, Julia!
