The kids thus far have worn the same Halloween costume for their very first Halloween. When I saw it in the store it was adorably poofy and as first time parents, we couldn't resist. We thought Lily looked adorable. As I stated the first time I posted this photo, I did not notice that maybe Lily (two months old here) didn't actually enjoy being out in the cold in this weird poofy costume.
And let me just add, wow. I had no idea what I was doing back then. Bad angles for a baby, blinding flash (well, it was nighttime) and no focal point. But who cares. This is definitely a moment I will forever cherish. And laugh at.
Next it was Charlie's turn. He was much older than Lily, seven months old, and filled out the costume much better.
He was the cowardly lion and Lily was Dorothy this year. Oh so stinking cute.
Well this year there has been the great wish to be The Incredibles. As it looks like we may be able to get Lily's costume, we will be going forward as Lily/Violet, Charlie/Dash, and Jack/Jack Jack. Yes, this year it just seemed destined to go this route. But, that means Jack won't actually wear the lion costume in any official capacity. And while you can't tell in this picture, may be a good thing as goodnessgracious I had a sad lion on my hands for much of this shoot.
Dear lion costume. We love you. We will keep you forever and ever. Thanks for being there for us for all of my babies.
