It doesn’t get much cuter than babies in costumes, and you’ve only got a few Halloweens to dress up that sweet baby of yours in the costume of your choice before super heroes and princesses are the only option. Mickey Mouse, baby Bob Ross, or my personal favorite… a wind up doll all are adorable choices. Most of these cute baby costumes start with a onesie and are super simple to throw together.
