For Halloween, I’ve always wanted to recreate my all-time favorite childhood movie, E.T. With a bicycle-loving toddler and a newborn, this year was the perfect chance to make it happen. 22-month-old Maddox was dressed as Elliot, with his E.T. sidekick riding in his basket. My husband Nick was dressed as Elliot’s older brother, Michael. I went as Gertie, Elliot’s pig-tailed, overall-wearing little sister and lastly 3-weeks-old Mila was dressed as Gertie’s famous little flower pot. This costume was a huge hit with everyone who loved this classic story as much as we did, and we had a blast doing it!
