Will Trixie go as a bunny or a pumpkin?

Neither, thanks to your great ideas! We received a TON of them, and I wish they could all be winners, but we had to do some editing (to separate the losers from the winners). So how did we choose? Technically, we had to be able to visualize the costume, and be able to make it in relatively short time. That criteria satisfied, there were just some that struck a particular chord with us, and our personal bias played a part. Of course, there are some we really like but just don’t have the time or energy to make it happen, but don’t feel bad – there’s always next year. Now, Go Vote!

    now, she can’t just go as malt liquor-you guys have to dress appropriately as well. granted, billy d. williams is gonna be hard to pull off but i think you can convey the basic idea with a wig while saying only “it works everytime” all evening to anything anyone says. and dress real sharp.

    what happened to the pope and funny hat. perhaps i’m being insensitive again. i was trying to think of something similar along the lines of bears and the woods (which, at diaper 800, might be appropriate)but i couldn’t get the idea together.

    even though my vote is for the colt 45,(or bearded baby) i think the mailperson and package is cute.

    Well argued point concerning Billy Dee. He’s back on the table.

    Jennifer & Ben,
    Babies always reminded me of stroke victims. You can see they want to reach for something or pick it up, but their body won’t respond. Language is the same. They understand, but can not communicate in a spoken language.

    I think this makes sense. I have also heard that you can communicate with babies by sign language before they are able to talk. They have gestures for hunger, frustration, excitement etc.

    I realize this post is very old, but I just wanted to pipe up that babies can indeed learn American Sign Language! I have a deaf friend who teaches ASL to hearing parents of hearing infants (her site) … and I’ve seen some amazing results. Some old friends took ASL workshops with their son last year, and it was almost sort of creepy to see him as an 9 month old, looking calmy at his mother and signing “milk, milk, milk” instead of crying or reaching for her. Babies are amazing … their desire to communicate is so very strong.
