Happy Friday!! I hope everyone has had a great week! What’s on tap for your weekend?
Tonight we have Hallie’s Memi coming to visit and we couldn’t be more excited! We are going to spend our whole weekend hanging out with her! Then Sunday morning we have our family Christmas pictures!
So on to oh hey Friday business, it was an eventful week!
1. Monday: Hallie tried rice cereal for the first time…she didn’t like it though!
2. Also Monday: We played with Hallie’s friends Luna and Parker, also we matched, it was pretty cute!
Deep thoughts by: Hallie Mock-
” I put everything in my mouth…except rice cereal!”
“Toes are a delicious snack.”
“How many times do we need to play Pat-a-Cake before I actually get to eat the cake!?”
“All day, everyday, people wait on me hand and foot, it’s good to be a baby”
“Sweet pea, princess, angel, baby girl…what is my true identity!?
“So the dog moves and barks….explain the unicorn!”
If you know me well than you know, I am a Christmas nut. Yes, I am one of those crazies that listen’s to Christmas music year round. My Dad and I actually have a annual contest going to see who breaks down first and puts on the Christmas tunes, like it’s a badge of honor. I usually win! It usually starts in late January or early February when the yearning for the Christmas spirit to come back!
If you ask my husband he would tell you that I love Christmas so much that I get super sad when it is over and can’t put away the decorations unless he takes them off the tree for me…still then it’s hard!
Aaand in case you missed it, one year I dressed the dog and myself up as Christmas Elves for Halloween and then had my Aunt take pictures of us, to put on a Christmas card for family and friends!

I knew when we started to prepare for Halloween, that Hallie probably wouldn’t fit in a store bought costume, given her teeny stature. I also knew that a first Halloween costume was not the time for me to attempt to learn how to sew or crochet, so unless I wanted to put her in a tutu (The only thing I know how to make) I had to think of another alternative.
So I looked to Etsy for a solution! I searched bunny hats and diaper covers and came across this shop:
The shop owner Wendy Dyk carries crochet hats, diaper covers as well as adorable headbands for babies first photos and other occasions. I fell in love with her work and picked this sweet bunny costume!
I ordered it, and within a day received a personal message from Wendy thanking me for my order and letting me know that their would be a “delay” because she had to order the yarn. It was totally fine as I had planned well ahead and purchased over a month before Halloween. However, within 4 days of her sweet email, my items shipped! That is a delay?!
She worked so quickly, and was a pleasure to correspond with! And Oh my goodness did I love the product!
It was beautiful and soft on Hallie’s delicate baby skin! It looked absolutely precious on her! Don’t believe me? Take a look!
Good morning folks and Happy Monday! Did everyone enjoy their Halloween weekend? We sure did!
Hallie and Luna trick or treated in my parent’s neighborhood (not even a full street though, lol, it was cold and they were tired!) then we went around to other family and friends houses to show off her cute costume…
Oh yeah! The costume! That’s what you came to see, right?!
I have a quick story!
When we found out we were pregnant I decided that if our baby was a girl, she would be what I was for my first Halloween, and if it was a boy, he would be what Christopher was for his first Halloween!
So, I was very excited to find out we were having a girl because I knew we would have a cute little…..
BUNNY for Halloween!
Here is me at 5 months old as a little bunny!
