Costume Countdown: Monarch Butterfly

When I started planning this little costume series, I had visions of Edie standing sweetly against a white wall in our kitchen showing off whatever she was wearing for the camera. Ha. Babies don't work like that. So here are a few photos of my child running around like the crazy lady she is!

  1. This is absolutely adorable!! If I didn't already have Landry's costume I would definitely do something similar. So simple and affordable! I can't wait to see the rest of this series!
