Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I expected finding bebe’s first Halloween costume to be easier. When I found out that I was pregnant, I immediately made two decisions:
I will have a calm, peaceful birth.
- Baby will be Harry Potter for Halloween.
So, when she emerged into the world with Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives playing in the background, I moved all eggs to the “Harry Potter for Halloween” basket. Except where are the baby Harry Potter costumes? I can’t craft, so making one is out of the question. They don’t sell them online, so buying one is out of the question.
My daughter was born hearing Guy Fieri’s voice, but the universe can’t even help me find an infant Harry Potter costume. Is this what people mean when they say being a parent is the hardest job?

I recently noticed that some of baby’s clothes have belt loops on them. She has some skinny jeans and overalls, in particular, that have belt loops.
I haven’t observed bebe walking around pulling her jeans up from constantly sagging. But, to be fair, I haven’t observed her walking around, period. Not sure what the utility is, but damn it if I didn’t immediately search online for baby belts.
Have I ever really lived until now?

I was so excited about sharing this little outfit that my uncle sent from Korea, but sometimes (all the time) bebe just wants to do her thing. Babies are so squirmy. Write this next part down — this is an important note-taking opportunity.
Things babies like about hats:
- Wearing them as masks
- Chewing them
- Using them for storage
- Driving them to the store for groceries
- Crafting them into makeshift shoes
- Weaving them together to form a raft
Things babies don’t like about hats:
- Wearing them on their heads
Pretty much could not get her to sit still, because she’s decided that she no longer wants to wear a baby fedora. *I* want to wear a baby fedora. This kid does not know how good she has it.
Also, how ridiculous is her chunk foot in that sandal — using the singular here since, yes, she would only wear one sandal.
