In the NICU when tiny babies are too fragile to hold the way new parents would typically hold a newborn, "Kangaroo care" begins. As you may remember from the early pictures of Faith and us, by kangarooing her we would hold her skin to skin on our chest- her entire body fit in one hand! The benefits of this type of holding are very clear- babies who are kangarooed tend to do better then those who are not. Of course we held Faith this was every chance we got. So when it came time to pick her first Halloween costume it was a given: Faith was a kangaroo herself. :) Her feeding pump is also called a "kangaroo pump" so it was just all too perfect.
Faith wasn't too happy on Halloween (she was still getting over her stomach bug) in fact she hated her kangaroo costume (wouldn't you if you had all of those tubes and wires and had to be stuffed in that thing?) so we settled on letting her chill in her pumpkin outfit. :)
