It's been only 3 weeks or so since Kuri joined our family.
Over the weekend we had a visit from Great Grandma and Aunt Marilyn.
Nyan-nyan, Mimi's favorite stuffed animal, got the full treatment the other day.

Mimi had a decision to make. Halloween was coming, as was her baby brother, so she needed to secure a costume right away. This was the first Halloween she has cared about (though doubtfully the first she'll remember), so it wasn't much of a surprise when Mimi began peppering me for a costume in September.
"What about this?"
"I want that one!"
"Papa. I don't have this. I need this."
"Papa, I wanna be a princess!"
It was this last one that had me most concerned. Like all proud Papas, I see my little girl as a princess, but I emphatically do not want her thinking she actually is one. There's enough of that trend in her as it is. The last thing I need is to give her a crown and a scepter and make delusion a reality. So it was with great relief that, after failing to secure a princess outfit, Mimi suddenly decided she wanted to be a bumble bee. That's definitely more my style!
A day or two after the bath, Halloween finally rolled around. Mimi was ready. She had her antennae, flashlight, pumpkin, and glow-in-the-dark necklace.
