When my son was still an infant, I loved it when a new holiday came around because it meant an opportunity to experience another “first” with him. While he won’t remember any of these firsts, they were great photo op moments we can look back on together.

Halloween was no exception. I loved dressing up as a kid, and even as an adult, it continues to be one of my favorite holidays, especially now that I can experience it with my son. For his first Halloween, he was the cutest skeleton I’d ever seen (I’m biased, of course), but there were so many adorable baby costumes to choose from.

This year, Halloween and trick-or-treating may look different, but that doesn’t mean our babies can’t get in on the fun. Even if your baby is just celebrating at home with you, dressing them up in a costume is a great way to have some fun, even if it’s just for the photo op. Hopefully, you’ll be taking them door-to-door asking for candy next year.
