I cannot believe how many people have asked we're going to torture Jackson for Halloween (i.e. what we will dress him up as). I'm fairly certain the question popped up even more than the sleeping question. Luckily we have MANY options. None of which are quite as torturous as what this parent decided to do: (photo found here)
So we'll start with what we have. My dear friend Clara gave us this cute Santa Suit, which was a potential.
We could have gone with the happy thug
Or the ADORABLE make shift pumpkin:
BUT, we decided to use one of the amazing outfits my friend Jyoti sent Jackson straight from India. It was beautiful, light, and had no head gear (of which Jackson was especially grateful).
Our ward (church congregation) had a lovely Halloween party last Friday, where we got to try out Jackson's outfit. We decided to all dress up--with a slight theme. We ended up being a religiously tolerant middle eastern family. Thank you Jyoti for supplying more than half of clothing!
And just as a bonus, Jackson has finally advanced to rolling over stage!!! At nearly 6 months, we figured it was about time. He now will roll right off his tummy as soon as he's placed on it.
10/9 - first successful (no aid) roll over
This video is from yesterday evening. Enjoy!
