this was owen's first halloween costume when he was 11 months old. he brought it to me the other day to help him squeeze back into it. i told him it'd never fit, but he assured me that "even though he was big, he was still just really little."
as soon as i got it zipped all the way up he spun around on his heels and marched triumphantly down the hall, fists pumping, with the biggest wedgie i've ever seen and a tiny red tail swishing back and forth from hip to hip.
ah, sweet victory.
