Milo was a cowboy for Halloween this year. He choose his own costume. He was going to be a dragon because a friend of mine had very cute costume the her son wore last year when he was two and she was going to let me borrow it but Milo refused point blank to wear it. Before I had Milo I didn't even know a two year old could do that! I tried twice to put it on him, the first time was in the middle of Word World (his favorite show) so I thought maybe that was the reason he flipped out. But the 2nd time he nearly ripped the head off trying to pull it off of himself. I tried to calm him down but he would not be calmed so I backed off and thought I'll let him work it out. That was when he started to try and climb the front of the changer so I would take it off of him. That was the point I decided, as cute as the costume was and as grateful as I was that my friend would lend it to Milo, he was not going to be a dragon for Halloween.

That same day we were at the same friends house playing and her son also has a play cowboys hat that Milo loves to play with so it planted the idea in my head that if the dragon thing did work out that Milo could be a cowboy because that "costume" is really clothes so it wouldn't feel any different to him and he wouldn't freak out. Plus he LOVES cowboy stuff. So we had overalls, we got him a western shirt and boots and borrowed a toddler sized cowboy hat from another sweet friend and VOILA instant cowboy!

Here's a little trip down memory lane. Milo was a penguin last year right after he turned 1! He had just learned to walk and he looked so cute waddling around in the big puffy belly and the penguin tail flapping behind him!

And he was a puppy dog for his very first Halloween right after he was born! it was so hard find a costume for him it ended up being huge on him and it was so snuggly warm he fell asleep in it as soon as we put it on him!
