DIY Baby Boy Faux Vest Onesie

DIY Baby Boy Faux Vest Onesie TutorialI made this baby boy faux vest onesie for a baby shower gift.  I have to admit that I seriously considered not giving it and keeping it for a future baby boy that I may or may not ever have.   It was just too precious! I really like the color combination of the grey vest and the tan suede bow tie.  I ended up giving it as the gift after all but it was with much longing that I parted with it but not before I made a tutorial so that I could make another one if that time ever came!

Little Boy Dashing Deer 2nd Birthday Party

Little Boy 2nd Birthday Dashing Deer Party

The party that I threw for my son’s 2nd birthday party evolved quite a bit.  It actually started last year and was going to be a Little Man first birthday party.   I made some ties, some mustaches and some other decorations for it.  Things ended up getting really  busy and I had to make the choice to bag it.  We celebrated with just cake and ice cream.  It was actually quite nice.  This year I wanted to throw him a party.   He and his sister have birthdays just a few weeks apart which makes it hard on a party planning mamma but I was determined not to let another year pass by with him getting the short end of the stick.   In an effort to help with the planning and since I didn’t have much time, I decided to use some of the things that I had made for his party last year and combine them with something that he is really into this year.  Deer are my son’s favorite animals.  And so the “Dashing Deer” party idea was born.   Each of the deer would be wearing bow ties to tie in the two party themes.
