Fall is finally here, and that means picking the perfect pumpkin, removing the seeds, and carving it just right (or skipping the mess altogether and painting the gourd however you please). But for some parents, the final step is to place their baby in a pumpkin and whip out a camera before things go sour. After all, a pumpkin picture makes a perfectly festive memento of your little one’s very first Halloween, so why not capture the moment with the help of the most adorable prop? Here to make your day, we rounded up some of the cutest infant pumpkin photos out there, from beaming pumpkin babies in a pumpkin patch to twins in separate gourds—because two baby-filled pumpkins are always better than one. Some pumpkins double as month-aversary announcements, some practically swallow up its tiny occupant, and some apparently make a primo nap spot. Take a look at the most heartstring-tugging (and downright hilarious) photos of babies in pumpkins—we dare you not to completely melt. Or, get inspired for your own little pumpkin’s photo shoot before you dress them in their DIY baby Halloween costume.
