I asked Little Evan what he wanted to be for Halloween and he said “DINOSAUR! RAWR!!!” Of course, that’s also what he said when I asked what he wanted for breakfast, what he wanted to do today, and why he kept trying to lick his sister. He’s a little bit obsessed with dinosaurs right now, thanks to that horrible Dino Dan kid (just shut UP already, NO ONE CAN SEE THE DINOSAURS. YOU MIGHT BE INSANE). Luckily, dinosaur costumes are cheap and readily available from every single costume store on the internet so I didn’t have to kill myself trying to sew one.

Instead, I pinned all my adorable handmade costume hopes and dreams on Caroline. And what’s more adorable than a baby in a tutu?

Can you tell what she is yet?

How about now?

Don't say "a yellow statue of liberty" because that doesn't make any sense

It would help if she was smiling

The headband is just felt cut and hot glued around a piece of elastic. The tutu I made with my own tutu tutorial on a piece of elastic instead of a ribbon (which was a mistake, because it’s a little too big and if I had used a ribbon I could just tie it tighter). The onesie was on clearance at H&M. BOOM. Sunshine baby.

I’ve been trying to take pictures of her in the costume for three days now, but she’s been a crying, snotty mess every time she was awake. I forced her into this photo shoot yesterday and couldn’t figure out why she was STILL such a crying, snotty mess until an hour later when I finally tracked down a thermometer (hereby officially labeled with a big giant black “R” for…well, you know how to take a baby’s temperature, right?) and discovered she had a fever of 103.6.

I’m expecting my Mother of the Year award to come in the mail any day now.

So we’re stuck at home today, not having photo shoots, hoping Caroline feels better soon and I don’t end up at the pediatrician and/or the hospital with a dehydrated baby. Little Evan is thrilled he’s not being forced to interact with humans and can watch all the Nick Jr he wants while I cuddly the sick-o and try to (literally) nurse her back to health. Thank God Dino Dan is only on once a day.

    I did that with Rory too. At Christmas last year i was all, wow all these people in the house are really making you warm Rory, let’s take that sweater off. i also thought the crabbiness was due to her being overwhelmed by all the people. Nope. Turns out she had a fever. it’s hard to tell with babies some times.

    The costume is ADORABLE! I hope Miss Sunshine feels better soon. OH, and I feel the exact same way about Dino Dan–grates on my skin. Luckily my Aiden is getting interested in Phineas and Ferb, which is only a slight notch lower on the Ick Meter. :)

    I “awwwed” out loud at those pictures. Such a cute outfit. You’re so crafty!

    I hope she feels better. And that you don’t lose your mind watching Dino Dan.

    Cute kids :-) and fabulous photography.
    I remember when my two were that young. They grow up fast so make the most of every minute and capture as many memories as possible.
    Best of luck to you all…
