I bet when you saw the title of this blog, you didn’t think I literally meant ‘Baby in the Pumpkin’ but yes, we carved out a pumpkin and all in the name of fun photography, stuck Jamisen in the pumpkin
The baby in the pumpkin did make this year more memorable than previous years. We had an extra fun time carving our pumpkin this year! As you can see, we did it a little differently than the traditional Pumpkin =)
He immediately realized he was sitting in food and started eating the pumpkin. It was a little hard in this format but we did take the opportunity to introduce him to this healthy food. Jamisen LOVED “his” pumpkin, especially when we steamed and pureed it up and let him eat it.
Pssst – If you’re thinking of doing this for your newborn, first of all, YES, do it! The photos are so fun but just a tip – we cut holes in a giant garbage bag and put Jamisen into the garbage bag and *then* into the pumpkin. This meant that he stayed relatively pumpkin-butt free and dry during the photo shoot.
