I spent a lot of time and effort of Vivi’s Halloween costume last year only to have Halloween go horribly awry in regards to being a baby. I had tried to take a few photos of her in it but she was pretty much a lump that laid there for most of October. She could sit up in her Bumbo and maybe roll from one side to her stomach but that was the extent of her mobility. I was hoping to get photos of her in the costume I so carefully curated when she was a little more mobile but not quite to walking.
Today I saw my chance.
While the laundry tumbled and the dishes swished in the dishwasher, I dressed my baby up as a platypus who doubles as a super secret agent and followed her around with my camera.
For anyone unfamiliar with Perry the Platypus, he’s a character on Disney’s Phineas and Ferb. He’s a pet who doubles as a super secret agent, Agent P, to rid the world of the Evil Dr. Doofensmirtz. He has a sort of growl/purr/chatter sound that he makes and that’s next on the list of things to teach Vivi.
