Baby's First Halloween! (and a giveaway!)

Can you believe Halloween is next week?? This month has completely flown by and tomorrow my little guy is two months old! Next Monday is not only his first Halloween but his first big holiday! Of course he won't know what in the world is going on, but Halloween is the BEST for getting awesome and adorable pictures. So when Oriental Trading asked me to review some of their baby Halloween costumes... I jumped on the opportunity. He's not going to let me dress him up forever, so I gotta get that time in now!

I chose 4 different costumes that are just BEYOND adorable and thanks to my mom, we were able to snag some awesome pictures! I guess I should thank Isaac, too, because he was super cooperative! So here we gooooo!





This is the monster costume. My son is only 2 months old and this is advertised to fit up to 6 months... so it's big on him. He liked the leg room, though! And as we were playing in it, the head piece on this one stayed up pretty well, probably due to the weight of the eyes and horns and stuff. So I would say even for small babies, this one would be fine. Here's the link: MONSTER BUNTING




This one cracked us all up!! I was the most excited about this one, but it turned out way too big on him. Still hilarious though and he seems happy in it! It reminds me of Left Shark...


This one's sizing also says for up to 6 months but it was much larger than the monster one so I would say it would be best on a bigger baby. Here's the link: SHARK BABY




Here's another gem... the chili pepper! My husband has a taco costume from the last couple of Halloweens and my boys dressed up together for National Taco Day earlier this month for my husband's online stream (check it out here!). So. Funny. This one fit really well and was probably the most comfortable for my little guy. The head piece was the perfect size, so if you are looking for something for a smaller baby, this one was perfect. Here's the link: CHILI PEPPER


And last but not least (possibly my favorite one!) is the baby bat!



This one does not come with a onesie to wear underneath so be aware. We went with a black and white stripe onesie underneath it, but you can barely see it, so any outfit would be fine. It came with gloves, booties, and a velcro cape. The cape was perfect and I liked that the hood was a little loose. It stayed on perfectly. The booties were way too big but with the padding on the inside, I was really surprised at how well they stayed on. As cute as the gloves are, I'm not sure my hand-chewer would have liked them for very long, but he didn't seem bothered by them!
