[This post kicks off the "Reanimation" series. Holidays seem to bring out the DIY in even the most inept, and if you're a Frequent Failer like me you'll want to know what other Pin Reapers have struggled with in the past. If you're going to try to put your baby in a pumpkin (I have a baby, and I admit I am tempted) take Secret Mommy's advice and bring the pumpkin to room temperature before you stick a naked little one inside.]

What I Did: Who among us with a fancy camera hasn’t seen some beautiful pic of a kid in some “propped” or “posed” photo on the internet and thought, “I’m going to do that with my kid! What a cool idea!”
Such is the story of me and my Nikon and my 5 month old daughter, Josephine, who is just getting kinda good at sitting up and who I thought would be ADORBSY sitting in a great big ole’ orange gourd this fall.

Next Time I Will: Should I attempt this again (will probably need another baby since stuffing Jo back into a pumpkin isn’t going to happen anytime soon…) I would definitely take the pic indoors and with a pumpkin that has also been sitting indoors. The warm temps could improve the chances of a positive outcome.
