I spied a leopard Baby Gap capelet last year that I had on my list to purchase for E before she was even born. When I decided to pull the trigger, it was sold out. Super thoughtful Cee even sent an early birthday present to E in the form of a gift card for it (thanks again!). Fast forward one year and I finally put one together. Though this one is a giraffe print :)
DIY Animal Capelet
Simplicity Pattern 4434 (cut larger because I have a tall bean sprout)
Though I didn't intend to, it also fits me, BUT I am not the type that can pull this off ;)
Trying it on E
I bought her some black leggings for when she actually wears this in public
I'm going to end this post with some toddler-isms from my 3-year old son :)
(Driving to preschool and passing a traffic light)
V: Mom, red is "stop" and green is "go".
Me: What is yellow?
V: Yellow is "keep going."
Me: Yellow is "slow down."
V: No (with a little bit of attitude), yellow is "keep going."
Sigh. This must be my husband's doing.
V: Mom, I want to watch Disney Junior
I mindlessly turn on the TV and flip through until it lands on Disney
V: That's not Disney Junior, that's Disney XD
The perils of a toddler who can semi-read
(Playing. V sticks a candy cane in his sleeve)
V: Look Mom, I'm Captain Hook!
These kiddos make me laugh every single day. <3
