It’s The Little Things: October Excitement

Happy, happy OCTOBER everyone! 🙂  I’m pretty sure I speak for everyone when I say we are excited that it’s official now, the next three months certainly are some of our favorites.  Waverly Maye & I kicked off the week with a few festive photos, she was so excited when I showed her this cat dress & kept saying “hi, kitty!!”.  One of her current favorite books is all about animals & she always remembers the cat page the most, so this little ensemble was totally her jam.

Also in the spirit of the season, we made our first batch of chili & painted Waverly’s first pumpkin of the year over the weekend!! 🙂  I went back & forth about letting her have at it, but ultimately decided to go for it since she really has turned into an arts & crafts lover lately.  I knew she would go crazy for it, she did & has asked every single day to paint again. 🙂
I used our oil clothegg crate & washable Crayola paint,  all of which I have been using for our painting sessions lately because they really work out so well.  We have also been going out in our front yard, with the weather so seasonable it’s been perfect & Waverly also loves to wave at the neighbors as they go by.  I don’t know that everyone would think so, but I was so proud of Waverly’s final product (even with all the colors blended together into a weird grey color). 😉  I am already planning some more ways to decorate some pumpkins in the next few weeks & of course, can’t wait to carve one for each of us, too!

Hope you are all having the best week so far, we wish you the HAPPIEST October full of lots of “little” moments with your sweet families!  See this post if you need a reminder of how to link-up.

    The kitty outfit – adorable!!
    I need that oil cloth. We are finally getting into arts and crafts, and that cloth would be perfect.
    Happy October!!

    SO excited that it's October for sure! That kitty dress is super cute! I really need to get on finding some festive stuff for my little guy like you've found! Did the paint stay on the pumpkin okay? We're wanting to paint pumpkins but can't decide what paint to use!

    Yay for October! I can finally think about the Fall now. The dress is adorable. We have three cats of our own, and I'm trying to convince my husband that we should just dress up as a cat family for Halloween, but he's not digging it lol. Maybe if I buy Anabelle a cat costume, he won't be able to refuse?

    Loving that cat dress…sooo cute! And aren't they just the cutest when you give them some paint and something fun – other than paper – to paint on???
