I bought four bird costumes a LONG time ago, when I was still very early in my pregnancy. They were on clearance for $2 apiece and I thought they were cute and appropriate. When she was in the NICU, we always called Trystan our little owl since she was constantly awake and alert with big bright eyes watching everything and everyone. So naturally she had to be one of the two owls along with Logan and Kailey and Harrison were tall, lanky red birds.
Being their first costumes ever, it was hilarious. I wasn't sure they'd like the idea but they loved being dressed in them. And they loved the hats. Not one of them took theirs off! They would point at each other and giggle and belly laugh, then run around and point some more. Later in the afternoon, they saw their costumes stashed on the easy chair in their play room and all grabbed one and brought them over to me, holding them out and grunting and moaning for me to put them back on! I settled on putting their bird hats back on and they've been wearing them all evening. They've also had a blast playing with the mini pumpkins I gave them to distract them during the photos, and have lined them up on the windowsills, in front of our magnetic chalkboard fireplace cover and rolled them around the carpet. Logan was even brave enough to straddle one of the big pumpkins and attempt to ride it!
P.S. A big thanks to my mom and step-dad for helping entertain the quads while I snapped pictures. Sometimes it takes a village and a half.
