Ruby's Halloween costume: baby aerobics instructor

Ruby's current wardrobe basically consists of onesies, leg warmers and headbands, so her Halloween costume was an easy choice - baby aerobics instructor it is!

All she required was a major accessory:

 Check out these legs.  She definitely has the physique to pull this look off.  Watch out, Jane Fonda!
 Comfy costumes make for happy babies.
 I have to admit ... I love my felt boombox!  It's almost as cute as Ruby.

What a clever idea for a halloween costume and how adorable Ruby looks! I also love Oscar's bones costume, so cool! You are one talented Momma!! When I saw your cat ears in the last post, I got all excited as I didn't know what I should wear for a Halloween Party we are going to until I saw that pic, thanks for that.

That is sooo cute.

Here in Florida you go for the coolest costume and I don't mean HIP. I mean the one your child is least likely to pass out from heat stroke. In the Midwest, where we are originally from you don;t know one year from the next if you will be out in just your costume or in a winter coat.
