Base Camp Halloween Parade

I have to admit tht I'm a litle bit of a Halloween grinch.  I don't really see the point in spending money on something you'll wear once.  I decided I'd buy Naomi a Halloweenish outfit (picture onsie with a cat or witch on the front) that she would be comfortable in and wear again.  While the outfit was super cute, as it got closer to Hallween I started to feel a little guilty that she didn't have a 'real' costume (and Halloween is actually a big deal at Clif Bar so the pressure from my co-workers didn't help).

So, at the last minute I decided to buy Naomi something that would still be comfortable yet qualify as a legitimate costume.   I present you with...Minnie Mouse!

Then, I realized that we had an adorable MI cheerleader outfit I still might be able to fit her into.  Here comes the Pip Squad:

So somehow my costume-less baby ended up with a week's worth of cute Halloween outfits and a wardrobe change for the Base Camp halloween parade.  Needless to say, she was a big hit! 

Here's a photo of Naomi in the company of 3 monkeys and a wolf - no wonder she looks stunned!

Baby Pull-Ups

Naomi is getting really good at pulling herself up to standing...and she has a bruise on her forehead to prove it!  She had her first fall at Base Camp and hit her head on a wooden toy chest - ouch!

Here's another video with a little crawling action:

Stronger and Stronger

It seems like Naomi has new moves just about every day lately.  She is crawling like a champ (I'll try to post a video of that soon) and today, she started pulling herself up to standing!  Here's a short clip:

And here are a few recent random photos showing how fun life is when you're 8 months old:

 Time to rest!
