Easy DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids

I am SO excited that it’s October!! To me, it’s the start of the holiday season. I honestly never felt this way before I had kids, but I basically find a way to celebrate everything now. Wait, you mean you didn’t give your kids a basket of Halloween themed goodies on October 1st? And yes, that includes all sorts of things for my 10-month-old. Duh, I know I’m crazy and that he (and probably not Elouise either) won’t remember his jack-o-lantern sippy cup when he’s in his 20’s but it sure made him happy today! Long story short, I go overboard for holidays now, it’s just who I am. For Halloween costumes this year I wanted to make it super fun since I have two tiny humans to dress. I am totally down for the family costume but my hubby doesn’t love them and the 31st is also his birthday so it’s only fair for me to let him off the hook. It was so fun for me to come up with ideas that I decided to put together a whole blog post. Now, these costumes aren’t the pre-made store bought ones (and there’s nothing wrong with those, the stores just don’t sell these ones) and they also aren’t the crazy DIY kind with sewing and paper mache. In fact, every one of these starts with clothes from one of my favorite brands, Primary. Solid colors, no logos, cozy, and totally going back into my kid’s dressers after Halloween. The rest of the details were all things I grabbed from around my house or super cheap do-dads, I’ll link as much as I can for you guys!

Sullivan’s Nursery Tour

I am so incredibly beyond excited to share Sully’s room with you guys. I poured my heart into this project. Mostly because I don’t think I was emotionally ready to have him in his own room since Elouise slept in our walk-in closet at our old place until she was 22 months. There were a few things I knew I needed in his room and then I kind of let the rest fall into place. I have always loved the look of “intentional clutter” but lately I’ve really been drawn to minimalist decorating. It’s almost more of a challenge because you really have to make the things you pick out count. I worked really hard to pull every detail together down to coordinating the two different colors of wood even into the tiniest details. I’ll share a little bit of insight as to how I pulled everything together below. I’ve linked everything at the bottom of the post for you guys and some of the links I’m sharing are affiliate links, so if you chose to buy something through them you’ll be helping support my family, which I appreciate more than you know.

Wipe, Wipe, Baby

I’ve been pretty “punny” lately with my blog titles. If you thought that cheesy jokes were reserved only for Dads, I’m here to tell you that you have been missing out. Anyway, that is totally not the point of this post. I actually wanted to share a little mom hack I have found and that is the specialty wipe. I might have just invented that phrase but I think it describes it well. Pretty much I now have a few different wipes in my arsenal at any given moment that all have specific purposes. Besides my baby wipes for diaper changes I carry nose & face wipes, tooth & gum wipes, and pacifier & bottle wipes. You guys, yes they are a thing and yes you 100% need them. Thanks to Dr. Brown’s for sponsoring this post so I can share all of my secrets with you.

Sullivan Gray: 8 Months

Where has my baby gone? No, seriously. He is SO big and getting more grown up by the second. Now that he army crawls its a game changer. We are officially in the awkward stage where he wants to be free and move but he shimmies on his belly across the floor so I’m not going to just put him on the ground while we are out and about. Also teething, teething and sleep training. This month has been rough and maybe that’s why I’m almost 10 days late with this post. Oops. Anyway, here’s a little update on life with my 8 month old little buddy.

Tooth, there it is!

Guys, stop, I know my jokes are awesome. Really though, Sully cut his first tooth and the second one is right about to pop through. While he looks a-freaking-dorable with that tiny tooth, teething is rough. I was not prepared because, you guessed it, Elouise never had any teething symptoms. So here I am trying my best to do everything to comfort this sweet boy. Not to mention mentally prepare for the slew of teeth that are to come. I have found that having a variety of teething toys to circulate through is what keeps my little buddy happy. Thanks to Dr. Brown’s for sponsoring this post.
