NOT Rock's Halloween Costume

Seeing as how he loves dogs, I ordered Rock a dog costume online. Now, obviously, he couldn't try it on, so I ordered the 12-24 month size figuring that even though Rock is in the the 90th percentile for both height and weight, he should be able to fit in something meant for a child twice his age.
Unfortunately, on Rock, it was way too small.
Especially on his off-the-charts-in-size head.
A (blurry) shot to demonstrate just how small it was -- see the white snaps that are supposed to connect the head to the body? Hard to do when they are 7 inches apart.
Even though it was way too small and I had to stretch it to get it over his shoulders for these pictures, Rock enjoyed dressing up. Which gives me hope for the new monkey costume I bought him (at a store where he could try it on!) for Halloween.

Pretty crazy. We can't wait to see the pictures of his monkey costume. That's what Caleb was, too.
