One of my favorite things about having a daughter is getting to doll her up, but sometimes knowing what to do with her hair can be a challenge. Her hair is very fine, and straight, so putting it up helps keep it out of her face and keep it from getting dirty. I’ll admit I am not the greatest when it comes to doing hair, so when I am doing hers I stick to easy basic looks. These are 6 hairstyles I wanted to share because they are easy, cute, and take up very little time. If I can do them, so can you! To get these looks I used a detangler, a tiny bit of baby lotion, a brush, a comb, and clear hair ties. (I use the tiny bit of baby lotion to tame any fly a ways or baby hairs in the front )
Hope this was helpful, let me know which one is your favorite. 🙂
It’s never easy throwing a party together but I will say it is quite fun in the end and well worth it. Our little Maddie turned two today and had a great time at her party this weekend with family and firends. I wanted to share her cupcake cake that was an absolute hit. It was super yummy, easy to make, and very cute. It fit the theme of her gold and pink princess party.
Halloween is just around the corner and I am so excited I finally finished my daughters costume just in time. Last year I had so much fun making her costume I knew I wanted to do it again. After scrolling through Pinterest for some inspiration I found a couple of pumpkin costume ideas that I wanted to try and recreate. I put together this costume in about two hours and I have to say, it was two hours well spent. It turned out so cute and I found out sewing paired with a glass of wine is a very relaxing combo. It might just be my new form of therapy 😉 It was so fun to create something one of a kind and that Maddie was excited to wear. If your looking for a fun homemade costume idea for your toddler this one is perfect. I am no seamstress by any means, so if I can do this so can you.
Then I began the top layer.
Top layer: 3 pieces of tulle laying on top of each other vertically, then sewing them across the top of the dress
Bottom: 4 pieces of tulle underneath the same way to give it more fullness.
Sew both layers all the way across your orange fabric. Now sew the dress in the back so its completely closed. This is time I let my daughter try it on so I could make sure the fit was right. Then to finish sew in the straps to the back.
Don’t forget to follow me and leave a comment and let me know what your little one is going to be for Halloween.
Thanks for stopping by!
For today’s post I put together 6 lunch ideas for your toddler that are easy and healthy. I know sometimes us mommy’s can fall into a rut feeding our kids the same old thing, so I wanted to share some of the lunch ideas I like to make my daughter, while still incorporating fruits and veggies. Just remember, even if they don’t eat them, always present them the option.These are easy to make and perfect to pack for lunch ideas. Let me know which one is your favorite and what your toddler likes to eat.
I found this recipe off of Pinterest and Maddie loves them. Here is the recipe. I made these pretty basic with plain breadcrumbs but you can really church these up adding in all different spices making them more flavorful. For fruits and veggie I added apples and peas & carrots.
I have made this recipe for a while. It’s super simple, just cooked noodles of your choice with steamed broccoli and I added in some whole milk and shredded cheddar cheese. It’s easy and it’s gets you kiddo to eat more veggies. After all everything is better in cheddar!! Then I added sausage for some protein and a strawberry and blueberry fruit salad.
You can’t go wrong with peanut butter and jelly. I think it’s every kids favorite. It’s defiantly Maddie’s favorite and of course she has it with no crusts. To add some fruit and veggies I added banana and some cucumber and cherry tomatoes. She doesn’t always eat the cucumber but I still give it to her to try.
I love making this for my daughter and myself. It’s one of those ready made pastas you can buy in the store and all you do is boil , strain and add any sauce you’d like. I added that same peas and carrots medley with cut up red seedless grapes.
Good old turkey and cheese with a twist. Making these into little cu-bobs makes it a little more fun and makes your little one more inclined to eat it. I added pretzels and mandarin oranges for her fruit and veggie sides.
Last but not least is a veggie noodle lunch. These are great by themselves or with some butter of cheese. I added to that the same fruit salad and cucumber & cherry tomatoes as before. Then I added a 1/2 of a hard boiled egg for some protein.
When it is still at a smooth consistency add your food coloring. Don’t be shy, add a lot to make it a richer color. I think I even added more after this picture. The first two batches I made, I added just a few drops and they ended up more like pastel shades, as you can see in the picture.
