(What Should Have Been...) Jack's Hallowe'en Costume

This was what Jack was supposed to wear for Hallowe'en this year. We picked it out last year (Mercifully we never pulled the trigger and bought it) from Pottery Barn Kids.



I remember rubbing my belly last year as I greeted our Trick or Treaters, looking forward to dressing up our little guy. There are so many things I wanted for him, and Hallowe'en is the least of it. 

But still, it stings we're going to be seeing little princesses and super heros tomorrow, and we'll have no one to show off at the door.  I think about what we might have done, taking him to visit each of his grandparents for a little door-to-door action and some cuddles... But instead, we'll hand out candy and hold back tears. I am hoping (a lot) there won't be many babies on parade tomorrow.

One thing is for sure, Jack would have made one hell of a cute bat.

Cute costume. We had an idea for our Leia and my husband had bookmarked the site. I too remember greeting all of our trick or treaters together, we both sat on our steps and commented on how cute they were. This year we are going out for dinner with my sister-in-law because it is her birthday today. A sign with candy will be left on our front porch for the taking. We just can't bare to be home and give out candy. It's just how we are going to deal with it this year.

I already posted about what Adam would be. I was also pregnant with him last year, 38 weeks. I joked with Jim that trick-or-treating would bring on labor (it didn't). Today is strange. Just got up and already having a rough time. Don't feel like you have to pass out candy tonight. No shame in turning off all your lights, hiding, and eating the candy yourself. :) Love ya.

We are turning out the lights and going out for dinner just the two of us. I also wish my Bear was here to dress in a cute outfit, but of course no more than I wish he were here doing just about anything. Blessings to you!

I was so close to buying a duck costume for Eliza. I had it IN MY HANDS at the store, and honestly the only reason I didn't buy it was because I got distracted and accidentally set it down and picked up something else and got home without it. Oh I miss your baby bat and I miss my baby duck. And you're right. Halloween is the least of it.

he sure would have been one hell of a cute bat! I wish he was here for you to show off tonight...
I didn't think Halloween was going to bother me as much as it is this year. Last year was so awful, we were one week out from Ellie getting sick. We took Max around my parent's neighborhood. I cried the whole time, my neighbors could hardly look at us because they were trying not to cry too... it was awful... I've already cried like five times today... I hate knowing that we have a little Princess Leia costume upstairs for her... Thinking of you tonight- hope its gentle on you.

=( I'm sorry your sad. I am too. Maddie would've been the cutest princess to go along with her big brothers who are a knight and a dragon. So sad. The holidays are the hardest. Praying for you as you miss Baby Jack. =( <3

Super cute costume...would have been even cuter with Jack wearing it. All these holidays...and every day just sucks without them :(

Rhiannon said...

Our little ones got dealt such a raw deal...its so unfair and the holidays just make it all that much harder. I know Jack would have such a cutie all dressed up. <3

That baby bat costume is freaking adorable but I know little Jack would have made it even cuter!

Dana said...

That is such an adorable costume! Jack would have been the cutest bat ever.

Halloween is tough for those who have lost a child. There was a cute little girl about 15 months (Cale would have been 16 months) out trick or treating and I couldn't help but get sad thinking I should have a cute little munckin dressed up. Having Finn takes the sting off these events, but they still sting - just not as bad :(
