This is Thomas’s Halloween costume.
I’ve been putting it on him as Halloween approaches for two reasons:
1) Glow-in-the-dark skeleton clothes are completely seasonally appropriate, and this skeleton costume doubles as pajamas!
2) I’m worried he’ll grow out of it by October 31. After every wash I cross my fingers and hold my breath as I put it on him.
So far, it still fits. But the shirt is getting tight around his belly.
My mom bought it for him when I was still pregnant. When she gave it to me we both shrugged — the baby would be about 5 months on Halloween, and this is size 6-12 months. It might be a little big, we figured, but it’ll be fine.
If my home scale is correct, Thomas weighs almost 19 lbs. Which can’t be right, can it? No, 19 lbs. is impossible.
Halloween is two and a half weeks away, which is plenty of time for a baby to grow out of an outfit.
If he does, he’ll go as a sumo wrestler. It is, after all, the costume he and I have been DIY-ing around the clock since the day he was born.
