Daddy Dozen: My Kid Needs a Costume!

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 6-month-old boy dress up as for Halloween?

Guest blogger Paul Starke: 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) R2-D2: 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 bail out 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 idea on the list because I think I dressed as a hobo when I was 6. I had a stick with a bandanna 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 as he does.

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