According to Paris Hilton, it’s totally acceptable to wear costumes after Halloween.

Today, the proud mom, 42, posted a video on her official TikTok account featuring her 9-month-old son, Phoenix, wearing a Cookie Monster costume from Sesame Street.

In the clip, baby Phoenix is wearing a Cookie Monster hood and staring at himself in the camera. Hilton says, “Do you like that? That’s you.” Phoenix looks at his mom every time she speaks, but he can’t seem to get enough of his own likeness.

The caption read, “Cuteness overload. Love him so much! My heart is full.”

Hilton and her husband, Carter Reum, welcomed baby Phoenix back in January. After his birth, Hilton revealed the inspiration behind her son’s name in an excerpt from her memoir, Paris.

“If all goes well, by the time you read this, Carter and I will have a baby boy,” she said. “We plan to name him Phoenix, a name that I decided on years ago when I was searching cities, countries and states on a map looking for something to go with Paris and London.”

Hilton continued, “Phoenix has a few good pop culture reference points, but more importantly it’s the bird that flames out and then rises from the ashes to fly again. I want my son to grow up knowing that disaster and triumph go around and come around throughout our lives. And that this should give us great hope for the future.”

In the wise words of the Cookie Monster, “Om nom nom nom.”
