Halloween Costume Sneak Peek!

halloween ladybug
I had her costume idea and half of it made before she was born. When we visited my family in Atlanta, my great-grandpa, aka Lil’ J’s great-great-grandpa bought the rest of it for her. So she’s now topped off with antlers, wings, a bodysuit and wand. Seeing her in it just makes my heart flutter!

Thank you grandpa!

great great grandpa

Pretty sure my little Lady Bug will be the cutest trick-o-treater on the block!

Everyone who comments on this post before October 8th at 11:59pm will be entered to win a Cute Bumble Bee Costume from Flowers and Beyond. Follow them on Twitter and/ or Facebook for an extra entry!

Oh my goodness. Cute as a bug! Literally. And I think those pics with great grandparents are so special. I know that 30 years later I’m so grateful to have pictures of myself with those people since I didn’t really get to have more than the first couple years of my life with the.

Beautiful! I always feel like I’m reliving my “firsts” with my babies when I read your blog! Thank you for sharing your love & making me feel it all over again. Now, she needs a new Piggies&Paws Lady Bug print to be framed with her costume portrait! 🙂

Adorable! And how wonderful is it that Lil J got a picture with her great-great-grandpa. When you tell her the story about him contributing to her first Halloween costume, I’m sure she will remember it forever. Hey…that costume can be an heirloom!

I am absolutely in love with your design skills! Amazing!! I love that you half made it before she was even born. That is so cute : )

I am so impressed that you already have her costume ready AND have taken pics!! So cute!

Oh my word she looks so adorable in that costume. You’re NUTS! You had it almost done before she was born!!?? I wanna be you when I grow up lol. I’ll probably be scavenging for some semblance of a costume on oct 30th.

Oh PS your great grampa looks just like my great uncle..um…what’s his last name? (is that wierd to ask?)

Now following @tutusbygayle. She’s got great stuff!!
