Halloween!

Work is starting a bit later today and I have an extra 30 minutes before getting on the train. I stopped at one of the myriad of new hipster coffee shops in my neighborhood and am eating a croissant and latte contemplating nothing in particular. Baby- free time can be so re-charging.

Last night I took Arya to a work event and she was a total rockstar and hung out in a huge crowd smiling and playing with strangers. I’m again so so thankful to have such an easy baby. And it doesn’t hurt that she is at the most adorable age.

I have been dreaming of having a kid on Halloween for years and it finally happened.  I took Arya trick or treating with my friends and their 1 year old.  The kids had no idea what was up but it was adorable and I get to eat all of the candy so it was a win/win.  I am such a nerd for Halloween that I bought Arya’s costume 4 months before she was born.  I had to get it because I’m obsessed with dinosaurs and the costume is a baby dinosaur hatching from an egg.  I also made myself a matching mommy dinosaur costume.  Arya was shockingly chill about keeping her costume on-even in the summer-like heat we were having.  Here she is in all her adorable dinosaurness:
