What says Happy Thanksgiving better than a giraffe?! Yes, I know we’re super late in posting Ada’s Halloween pictures, but better late than never, right? Plus it’s so cliche to post them on Halloween, we’re setting a new trend by posting them at Thanksgiving! That’s right, we’re trendsetters now! Wedding photographers and trend setters. It’s the full package.
We went round and round on what to dress her up as for Halloween. I wanted a mermaid since that was her favorite toy, but we ran out of time to make it. Then we googled, and googled some more, trying to find something cute and not overdone, but honestly couldn’t justify spending the amount of money costume companies were asking on something for a 1 year old who’s not going to remember it, and won’t wear it for very long. So we did what every good parent does. We went to target. We walked up and down the costume aisle, and eventually agreed upon the giraffe. We took the giraffe hat out of the bag to see if she’d like it, put it on her head, and she happily wore it around the store with a huge grin on her face. That’s what I call a parental win!
We affectionately called her the world’s smallest (and cutest) giraffe, and she had the best Halloween ever! She would still be wearing that costume if I’d let her! She was so funny walking around with the puffy suit and head that kept falling down over her eyes. She didn’t care if she could see or not, she just loved her costume!
Our little social bug LOVED all the kids coming by too. We didn’t have many this year since half the houses on our street aren’t finished yet, but the ones she did see, she chased down the street screaming at them saying “Ada bug! BYE!” over and over again! It was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!
So there you have it, the story of how a giraffe officially became the symbol of Thanksgiving, and you also learned that if you ignore our daughter she’ll stalk you and scream at you until you pay her attention!
