How is that possible!?
Also, fun fact. One year ago today we found out we were expecting June. 💛😭 SO so wild how fast the time goes, and how much our lives have changed! (But also in many ways stayed the same, but better!) I know many of you follow along on Instagram, so you’ve already seen these photos. But for those who don’t, I didn’t want you to miss out on the cuteness! 🥰
June’s Little Ratatouille Costume
Obviously a little rat costume was the ONLY option for June’s first Halloween! (If you’re new here, her nickname when I was pregnant was LR–for Little Rat 😆 More context in this post.) I ordered this sweet little hand-knit bonnet from this Etsy store called Bit of Whimsy Crochet and it was perfect paired with one of my favorite little ribbed sets from H&M (similar here) for a DIY costume.
If we’re being honest, I have always been a last-minute costume kinda gal and I am all about the easy, low-effort costumes.
I am too lazy to go all out 😂 Maybe when she’s REALLY into Halloween I’ll feel differently about the creative costumes. I am NOT the Pinterest mom and I’m totally OK with that. So I bought some chefs hats on Amazon and we became Ratatouille. (Note drawing a mouse nose on a wiggly baby with eyeliner is not one of my strong suit.)
We went to our friends’ halloween party Saturday afternoon (thank you for hosting Erin and Lucas!) and it was a TRIP. (Same friend group as our Michigan crew if you remember when we all rented that house in Michigan in September!) It was nice because several of us have kids–so we didn’t feel that bad when June lost her mind or that we had to wear her in the Babybjorn for most of the party–but it was quite the departure from Halloweens past, that’s for sure. 😆 We made it work though!
Kelly and Mitch also came over Saturday night and even though I said we wouldn’t pull our usual 2am hangout–that’s exactly what happened. I’m pretty sure they were over until 2:30?! We can never have an early night together! So needless to say, we’re glad she’s not old enough to remember she didn’t go trick or treating on her first halloween–as it was spent being lazy on the couch all day. 😂
Anyway, I hope these funny pictures brighten your Monday! 💛
