How I Spent Halloween With a Monkey

As we wrote before, the boy has been pumpkin-crazy for weeks. We bought him one and he insisted on taking it to the bath and to bed. He calls them “pump-kings.” And can you believe it? They’re everywhere! They all have to be identified with pointing and delightful shouts.

Like last Halloween, Grammy made a super-duper costume for our little monkey. He even kept the hat on for a while as we went trick-or-treating. This first photo was taken at his daycare.

This is just a bonus picture we took the other day in a diner. He wasn’t particularly grumpy, but it’s a nice pout, nonetheless.
