And last Saturday (October 22), the Zierings hosted Mia’s first Halloween party at their Los Angeles home. Each pint-sized guest received a nutritious gift pack from NurturMe with pumpkin/squash baby food. The new parents opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about their festive party: “We had 16 babies between the ages of 6 months to 9 months and one toddler and their parents.”
It sounds like the party was a spook-tacular good time!
Everyone came in costume,” the Zierings said. “We had a pumpkin decorating station, a musical sing-a-long with Sara from World Citizen. Baby and NurturMe donated the gift bags with pumpkin/squash baby food in them and little gifts for the babies.”
Mia got into the festive spirit…thanks to the yummy goodies! “I think getting to eat the pumpkin baby food was Mia’s favorite part of the day,” the proud new parents said.
The couple invited “friends in the Hollywood area with babies close to Mia’s age and from our Mommy and Me group.”
And it sounds like there were some creative costumes at the afternoon shindig.
We had 17 couples with babies at our party,” Erin told us. “Ian dressed as Link from Zelda while Mia and myself were his fairy companions. We had a couple come as the Ghostbusters and their baby as a ghost. We had the Flinstones with Pebbles and Bam Bam. We had Peter Pan, Hook and Tinkerbell as a family. We had a mom and baby come as bumble bees and the daddy as a bee keeper. My favorite costume was a mom dressed up as ‘wasabi mommy’ and the baby as a piece of sushi.”
While the parents had a great time with each other, the babies also bonded at the fun party. “We can definitely see some ‘baby friendships’ developing,” the Zierings said. “It is interesting to see them gravitate towards each other and watch each other play.”
What are the Zierings’ plans this Halloween?
Our plans for Halloween is to visit with our neighbors, put Mia to bed by her bedtime (7 p.m.) and have some mommy/daddy time over dinner in the kitchen.”
