Daddy Dozen: My Kid Needs a Costume!

Guest blogger Paul Starke: I can't wait to take our son Luke out trick-or-treating. Sure, he won't know what the hell's going on, but I'll get to go home with a big bag of Snickers. The question is: what should a six-month-old boy dress up as for Halloween? Seriously, my wife can't decide on anything, but here are our Top 12 Infant Halloween Costume choices. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

1) R2D2:  This is my personal favorite. I may as well start imposing "Star Wars" on him at an early age. Not a coincidence that his name is Luke.

2 & 3) Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac: Topical, yes -- but will the government have to bailout our Halloween candy?

4) Whoopie Cushion: He already makes the same noises -- out of his mouth and his butt.

5) Pinetree Car Air Freshener:  We saw this online, and it's really cute. And it might make him smell better, too.

6) Michael Phelps: Our baby has already set a world record for freestyle puking.

7) Bag of Cash: Another item we saw online. This also represents how much the baby will cost us.

8) Hobo: I only put this politically incorrect one on here because I think I dressed as this when I was 6. I had a stick with a bandana tied around it and everything. How horrible!

9) Tom Cruise: Baby and Tom are roughly the same height. "You had me at Enfamil."

10) Baby Elvis: There's Skinny Elvis ... Fat Elvis ... why not baby Elvis? What's cuter/creepier than a toddler with sideburns?

11) Political pundit Chris Matthews: Luke drools about as much he does.

12) XBOX 360: This way, something I love will dress as something else I love.

My husband and I make our costumes. It’s a fun way to save fun and see what were capable of making with our busy life styles. Our first Halloween as parents we made the Flintstones costumes, since they were cave people it was an easy design so we didn’t use patterns. We dressed as Fred, Wilma, and dressed our 5 mouth old as Pebbles. Everyone that came to our house for candy just love it.
If buying a costume is something you ready want to do, my vote is for R2D2, although, if you dress as whoopie cushions that would be hilarious. Just think a family farts together stays together.

My husband and I are gamers, and expecting our first child in February. So, I have to vote for the Xbox360 costume! But, you should be the maybe Luke should be a Nintendo DS or PSP :)
