Birdie was a black cat like our Big Kitty for halloween. She thought it was hilarious, and since the words she has said so far include: mama, dada/yaya, bubba (Big Kitty), meh (the kitten) and "meow" we thought the kitty thing was appropriate.
We took her to a mall so she could see the kids all dressed up (we don't get trick-or-treaters here.) Of course, she refused to say "meow" for anyone. At first, she just gave everyone a cold stare. She eventually warmed up and gave huge smiles and reveled in the joy of people telling us and her how cute she was.
Then she wanted to practice her walking. At just that time a giant Dunkin' Donuts Donut Man came along. Our little Birdie was soooooo excited and tried to get to him/her/it. She's not a great walker yet though, so we toddled hands and fingers down the mall walkway at a remarkably slow pace for people chasing someone. Hearing my little girl squeal with delight and YELL as she "chased" a giant donut was pure comedy. Best Halloween Memory. =)
