She's too cute—and the former first lady thinks so, too.

This little girl's Michelle Obama Halloween costume is amazing 😍

Three-year-old Parker Curry is once again a viral sensation, thanks to a Halloween costume that is the best follow-up ever to viral fame.

Back in March, a photo of Parker entranced by a portrait of Michelle Obama went viral. She was taking in the National Portrait Gallery with her mama when a fellow museum-goer, Ben Hines, snapped the photo and posted it online.

From there, Parker became a mini-celeb and the world loved her as much as she loves Michelle Obama.

Parker's love for the portrait demonstrated why representation matters so much, and after going viral, she even got to meet the former First Lady.

Now all this happened a few months ago, which may as well be a million years for a toddler. So when Parker's mom asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween, she was surprised by her daughter's answer.

"Flat out. No hesitation. Half of a second later. 'I want to be Michelle Obama,' and I was like Whoa," Curry told BuzzFeed News. "I thought she was going to be like, 'I want to be Elsa or some other character like that.' "

Alisha Welsh of Magnolia Lake Children's Clothing came through for Parker's mom, creating a custom-made dress in time for Halloween, just like the one Michelle Obama wears in her portrait.

Parker looked amazing, and even got a shout out from her role model.

We agree with the former First Lady. Parker, you totally nailed it. 😍

I live in the Northeast and when I woke up this morning, my house was freezing. It had been in the mid 40's overnight and we haven't turned the heat on yet. Suddenly, my normal duvet felt too thin. The socks on my bare feet too non-existent. Winter is coming, and I'd been drinking rosés still pretending it was summer.

I couldn't put it off any longer. It was time to do my annual tradition of winterizing my home—and I don't mean making sure my pipes and walls have enough insulation (though obviously that's important too). I mean the act of evaluating every room and wondering if it has enough hygge to it.

If you've never heard of hygge, it's a Danish word that means a quality of coziness or contentment. And what better time to make sure you have moments of hygge all throughout your house than right now? As far as I'm concerned it's the only way to get through these dark winter months (even more so during a pandemic.)

So I went room by room (yes, even my 4-year-old's room) and swapped in, layered or added in these 13 products to get us ready for winter:

Sorry, you can’t meet our baby yet

Thank you for understanding. ❤️

In just over three weeks, we will become parents. From then on, our hearts will live outside of our bodies. We will finally understand what everyone tells you about bringing a child into the world.

Lately, the range of emotions and hormones has left me feeling nothing short of my new favorite mom word, "hormotional." I'm sure that's normal though, and something most people start to feel as everything suddenly becomes real.

Our bags are mostly packed, diaper bag ready, and birth plan in place. Now it's essentially a waiting game. We're finishing up our online childbirth classes which I must say are quite informational and sometimes entertaining. But in between the waiting and the classes, we've had to think about how we're going to handle life after baby's birth.

I don't mean thinking and planning about the lack of sleep, feeding schedule, or just the overall changes a new baby is going to bring. I'm talking about how we're going to handle excited family members and friends who've waited just as long as we have to meet our child. That sentence sounds so bizarre, right? How we're going to handle family and friends? That sentence shouldn't even have to exist.

Mama, all I see is you

A love letter from your baby.

Mama,

I can't see past you right now, I'm so small and everything's a little blurry.

All I see is you.

When you feel alone, like the walls are closing in, remember I'm here too. I know your world has changed and the days feel a little lonely. But they aren't lonely for me.

You are my everything.

When you feel like you don't know what you're doing, you're making it look easy to me. Even though we're still getting to know each other, you know me better than anyone.

I trust you.
