Little boys should never be sent to bed, they always wake up a day older
I did a Peter Pan theme for Nate’s third month because it’s one of my favorite Disney movies. And since I already have a pair of green onesie and pants in the house, I’m just going to add a hat and some Peter Pan details on the onesie.
I think this is one of the hardest costumes I have ever made. It’s a little complicated and I really tried to figure out how to make the Beasty vest using a polo shirt since I’m not really an expert seamstress. (I taught myself how to sew, so I can make cute little things. 😀 )
And I don’t want to sew a whole vest for a one-time photoshoot.
Disclaimer: Again, this is a late post 🙈
When Nate turned one month, I was still under the Aladdin hype. I don’t want to use superheroes anymore because Niko already did most of the famous ones. So, I thought, why not go with Disney characters. 😀
Most of the materials I used for the costumes are felt. The blazer was sewn by me and I already have the white pants. I stitched a square yellow felt on the pants as a “patch” just like Aladdin’s.
Whew, it’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been busy taking care of three boys since this quarantine started. Yep, you read it right. Three boys: one toddler, a 5-month-old and a big baby (the husband).
Today, I will share with you how I made the magic wand that I used for Niko’s 7th month Harry Potter theme (he just turned 2 years old this March, so this is undeniably, without a doubt, indeed, a late post.
Last year on Valentines Day, I did a photoshoot with Niko dressed as Cupid. Niko is already 23 months (1 month till 2. Yey!) this year and since I love crafting and organizing parties, I decided to make it special: I surprised him with a mother and son date.
When Niko was still a few months old, I was into making foam caps for his costumes. But as he turned 11 months, his annoyance with these caps started and I can’t force a toddler to put on something that he doesn’t like or there would be chaos.
I was supposed to say BOO, but I guess I’m pretty late with that now. I still believe that it’s better to be late than never especially when sharing my DIY projects.
October is one of my favorite months because of Halloween. So, I hosted my own baby shower with a Halloween theme. I called it Oh Boo-y!
I wasn’t actually planning to do a photoshoot for Niko when he turns 18 months (hence, the absence of the cake), but then I thought that 18 months is some kind of special because it means that he is already halfway between one and two years.
Niko was invited to a Princess Sofia the 1st birthday party and I made a DIY Prince James outfit to fit the theme.
I bought a green polo shirt as a base. The blue bow is removable and a white fabric was sewn under it as a version of Prince James’ Victorian bow. See photo below 😀
I did Niko’s ONE-year photoshoot a week before our flight to the Philippines.
The photoshoot was done in our apartment’s garage (yes, I emphasized the word apartment because people might get the wrong idea that we have our own garage.)
