My little Cardinal (Halloween)

I had the hardest time deciding what I wanted to dress Micah up as for Halloween. I took so long that Mum and I ended up making the costume the evening before. It's great having someone around to do all of the sewing for you especially since I still haven't figured out how to get anything done with a baby around! (My Mum is AWESOME- in case you all didn't know)
I had bookmarked Martha Stewart's Bluebird costume a few years ago and knew at some point I would want to dress a kid up in it. The directions are terrible so really all we ended up using was the pattern for the wings, the rest we did our own version of ... which we think turned out SO much cooler than the inspiration!
So here's the photo shoot we did (by we I mean mom) and of course we had to use the stump!





And my favorite!
