Happy Halloween from our little giraffe! I worked so hard on figuring out what Fitz should be for his first Halloween, and finally settled on this adorable giraffe!
The smallest size was 6-12 months, so it was a little bit too big, even for our little chunk! He looked at us like we were crazy when we were trying to get him into this getup! The only part he didn't like was the headpiece, because it kept getting in his face. We only left him in in long enough to take some photos.
We had to make sure we got a picture of the cute tail!
We tried his costume on him on Saturday because we were going to a fall festival with Tootsie, where the kids were dressing up in their costumes. We didn't want Fitz to be left out! Once we figured out that Fitz was not too happy with his giraffe costume, we moved on to the next costume. A friend of ours gave us the Pottery Barn Kids puppy costume as a gift, and I'm so glad I didn't exchange it because I already had the giraffe!
Check out our cute little puppy dog! This costume fit him so much better, and he didn't seem to mind wearing it at all! It actually kept him warm at the fall festival, so it worked out great!
This one had a cute tail, too!
I just knew Fitz was going to be so interested in seeing all the kids Trick-or-Treating, so I asked John to set up the swing near the front door so he could see everyone when I opened the door. I got him all dressed in his puppy outfit, gave him some toys to play with and started handing out candy!
After about 10 minutes, he looked like this:
I think he enjoyed seeing the kids during those 10 minutes, ha!
We had a great first Halloween, and we hope yours was great, too!
