Baby's Day Out
Posted by Lauren Hartmann
Going to the pumpkin patch is kind of my most favorite tradition ever. My husband and I have been together for almost 12 years (we started dating in high school!) and I’ve made him take me every single year. It was always fun, but now that we have a little one to bring along, it’s infinitely more fun. The whole, entire world is a new experience when seen through the eyes of a child, which is why I love the pumpkin patch even more now. Here’s a peek at our trip to the pumpkin patch!

With Hallowe’en coming up right around the corner, you’re likely thinking of costumes. For those of you with babies and toddlers, this can be a bit more difficult, I know from experience!
I’ve always been a fan of handmade costumes, from the easy to the ornate. There’s something for everyone here, and if you’re choosing something that’s handmade from an artisan over a DIY project, remember to rush that order so you get it in time for the big day!

A few weeks ago, we headed to Disneyland and California Adventure for my oldest daughter’s birthday. We were especially excited because some of our friends were joining us, and there is nothing more fun than watching little eyes light up as they immerse themselves in the magic that comes with being at the happiest place on earth. Because it was my older daughter’s birthday, I wanted to make sure that we spent the day doing things that she wanted to do, but it was also important to me that Lola had fun too and wasn’t forced to spend the day in her stroller or on our hip.

Oh boy. There’s nothing I love better than some tiny, itty, bitty newborn action dressed up in costumes. I mean, it’s all just too precious. The newborn stage is a fleeting one. We all know this, and yet when we’re in it, it’s the last thing we want to hear.
Which is why, when it comes to holidays and special occasions, donning them in something over-the-top adorable erases all memory of those sleepless nights and challenges of fresh and ripe new motherhood. At least it did for me. Especially when I was able to capture those moments and adorn my walls with the visual proof. Proof that my baby was the cutest baby ever to walk the earth on their very 1st Halloween.
Sure, I’m obviously partial, as you likely are with your own. The only thing is, those handmade costumes and photo props for newborns are expensive! Why not try your hand at making something yourself? I’m presenting this roundup of DIYs to y’all with plenty of enough notice to get busy, just in time for Halloween, your 1st tour around the neighbourhood as a family and all those pictures you know you’re just aching to take.
