Halloween

Halloween!

This is another baby post, basically.

Halloween is an excellent occasion to dress your baby up in cute costumes, and as I had no time/interest for baby sewing, I used stuff I bought.

Like this cute astronaut flight suit that was marked 12 months (and we were at 11), that was, alas, way too small.

I put blue leggings on under it for pics, but ended up having to change her.

She still loves this book!

Here you can see how short the legs were on her:

So we changed into a Star Trek onesie for daycare instead.

For Trick-or-treating, I used a costume I bought her on Etsy. She was… Moana! It’s her fav movie. Frankly, the costume itself was so simple I could have made it. But I bought the deluxe version that came with this amazing Hei Hei trick or treat bucket which was so cleverly done. I love it. And also the lovely flower wreath for her hair. Those I could not have made as easily. So worth it. The heart of Tefiti necklace I got on amazon. The whole thing isn’t screen accurate, but that’s ok. Maybe someday.

We only went trick-or-treating at two houses. We drove to our friends Steve and Mindy, who go all out for Halloween (and also hit their neighbors). Mostly we just watched their son (standing up agains the garage door in a demon joker costume) scare the kids.

She was so tired from the experience that she fell asleep on the drive home… and did not wake up through a diaper and PJ change. I can’t believe she actually stayed asleep!

We wore the costume again a week later for Steve & Mindy’s party.
