I finally had a chance to use my Valentine’s Day inspirations pinterest board for Michael’s first Valentine’s Day party at his daycare!
There are so many great ideas out there! I especially liked the fish bowls, tic tacs, and chips.
However, since many of those at daycare (including Michael) aren’t eating solids, I went the route of age-appropriate toys instead.
And… voila! Amazing valentines!
These valentines are DINO-riffic!
I combined a few of the dinosaur valentines I found online and designed one perfect for “our” (Michael’s, but he doesn’t know what he’s doing yet…) needs. Download the template here
. I added these dino bath squirters
The final product
I hope you have a great Valentine’s Day!
Baby Michael was born just in time to celebrate his first Halloween in style!
I originally wanted him to be a Cookie Monster, but there weren’t costumes in the itty bitty size that I needed. (We did end up receiving a toddler-sized one as a gift, so be on the look out for our Cookie Monster next year!)
Late night breastfeeding is conducive to lots of Pinterest browsing and I found this adorable glow-in-the-dark skeleton outfit on sale. $8 for a costume? Done.
Skeleton baby & skeleton head wine!
I also made this ghost onesie for Michael. (More on that in a future post; hopefully this week)
BOO! It’s Michael!
You’ve also already seen Michael’s pumpkin bib. It was a gift and was perfect for Halloween and his six-week Facebook photos.

Finally, his Waldo outfit came together by happenstance. I was going through Michael’s outfits, saw the red and white striped onesie and his blue pants and voila! I added a red electrical tape stripe to his hat from the hospital, along with a yarn puff. The only item I needed to purchase were pipe cleaners for his glasses. $1 total. Cheapest– and cutest– costume yet!
Where’s Waldo… er… Michael!? I found him!
Look at those specs!
Which costume is your favorite? I like them all!
We tried putting Michael in an actual pumpkin too, something I’ve always wanted to do with a baby, and it was an extreme failure. We were all laughing as much as my sister was. Everyone except Michael. Maybe next year?
This looks so easy on Pinterest…
