We welcome these baby Halloween costumes into the Rookie Moms Hall of Fame

I’m not sure how it ended up that I got assigned this particular post as Heather’s is by far the Star Wars-loving household between us. But as she is frolicking about in Palm Springs at Camp Mighty, here I am showing off the very adorable baby Princess Leia costume our friend Ha made for her daughter.

Though Sophie (below) is already eight, I have to share her “posing” as a sea cucumber when she was an infant. Her mom also forwarded me the photo that served as inspiration. I love it!

Reader Sarah sent this photo of her homemade zebra costume, which I love because my daughter Scarlett was a homemade Zebra when she was one, but somehow I have no photos of it. Sarah did an awesome no-sew job, right?

Colleen Cunningham sent us this R2D2 costume she made from a white sleepsack by simply drawing R2’s buttons on the chest and hat. Very cute, especially when paired with big sister’s store-bought Yoda costume.
