Hey everybody!   I’ve been so focused on busting out of the NICU,  I completely forgot about choosing my Halloween costume.  My cousins are known for having the best ideas like a Spider Princess and a Bat Princess.  They are so smart like that, and Aunt Jenni is very creative.  I stayed up all night fretting over my costume but all the good ideas I came up with needed my Daddy’s participation.  He is working far away so those ideas will have to wait until next year.  I finally threw my hands in the air and said  “Mommy, you’ve gotta come up with something for me.”

So Mommy said “Anna Catherine you are so perfect, I have a Purrrrfect Kitty costume just for you.  Its black and orange, we can paint your nose like a kitty and give you kitty whiskers and a big orange bow”.  But the real big surprise was when the nurses took me Trick or Treat’n around the NICU riding in a big red wagon.  The whole operation was under the guise of “testing my portable equipment” but it was really all about having fun and visiting all my NICU friends that I’ll miss dearly once I’m discharged.

Zooming around in a speedy red wagon had me scared at first.  But I found my courage with the help of my Wubbanub friend.  After a while I was having a great time looking around and seeing how tall everyone was.  Adults are funny looking with their big people pants.

I had such a wonderful time seeing all my NICU friends.  Thanks so much to everyone who helped make this day special.

Here are some photos of my Halloween Trick or Treat adventure:

Before you know it I’ll be bigger and  real good at picking out Halloween costumes.  I’ll probably be so good at it that I’ll even pick out costumes for Mommy and Daddy next year.  Email my mommy and me at ThibodeauxMom@live.com and tell us about your Halloween costume.  When I wake up from my nap she will read your messages to me.

Stay cute America!
