Mom and Baby Halloween Costumes

For me, Halloween is so much more fun now that I have babies. I don’t really enjoy costumes for myself, but I love costumes on adorable kids. For my daughter’s first Halloween, she was only 9 months old, so the costume was entirely for me. She couldn’t care less. She was an adorable ladybug, but it wasn’t a very practical costume considering we spent the evening driving to visit her grandparents and friends, so we had to take it off every time we put her in her car seat.
