Pigs in a blanket!
I had my mind set on making Elli’s halloween costume this year, and since she doesn’t yet have a say about these things, I got to pick!
The costume had to be WARM and I knew I’d be wearing Elli for most of our halloween parties & trick-or-treat, so I wanted to make sure that I could wear her and still have her costume make sense. So – pigs in a blanket it was! (I also entertained making her dress as king kong and dressing myself as the building king kong climbs up, but the pigs seemed cuter and easier!)
My mom crocheted E’s pink piggy hat and it’s so darn cute! She also made a nose for my hat, which I quickly sewed from pink fleece and felt (for the ears). The button eyes were just hot glued on.

We both wore pink, and I wrapped us up in the Moby. (I’m obsessed with babywearing these days because it means I’ve got two free hands… another added bonus is that E stayed super-warm and cozy in there during a few cool fall MI days/evenings.) And that was it. Easy peasy.
