I broke down a few weeks ago and bought a Captain America costume for my 4 year old--it was just easier than making that costume. Then we started talking about what our 5 month and 6 year old should be too. I was perusing Pinterest when the 4 and 6 year old saw a picture of the avengers. So I showed them some other super heroes..and that's how we decided to be a family of superheroes.
So the boy is captain america..I'm not going to take a picture of this costume to post here. But you can imagine what it looks like. I wanted to do a coordinating costume for mom and baby...we found this idea:
I dabbled with the idea of the baby being batman and mom being robin, but it just didn't work out that way.
