Theodore's First Halloween : The Strongman

This was Theo's first ever Halloween, and as you could have guessed, Amanda went for it on his costume. In Theo's first few weeks we loved to admire the baby rolls on his arms and legs, joking they looked like giant muscles.

It was then that we realized a circus strongman would be a great costume for the youngster. This image became our inspiration:

Amanda found the right material for the suit and broke out the needle and thread. For the dumbbell I took a baby rattle and covered in black electrical tape (natch). And here, ladies and gentlemen, we present to you Theodore the Strongman:

We couldn't have been more pleased!

One side note though, after seeing the following photo which shows Amanda's handywork with Theo's moustache, we couldn't help but see the resemblance to a certain eccentric painter. What do you think?


Theo is about four and a half months old now, but apparently he can't wait to start getting on the move! It looks like it's going to be any day now.

Theodore and Oona O'Driscoll got into fisticuffs while Daddy Trevor refereed. Nice parenting, Trevor!

Somebody Needs A Shave!

We knew he was growing up quickly, but this is ridiculous!

Santa Chibs is coming to town!

Time to Get Bundled Up!

It's getting cooler, and little Teddy needs to keep cozy. Check it out!

And a little bonus one that's just plain cute.

Theo's room on Project Nursery!

Amanda & I really enjoyed the process of designing Theodore's nursery. It was a challenge to make such a small space comfortably hold all the items we'd need while also being aesthetically pleasing and in keeping with the design sense of the rest of our apartment.

Through planning his room Amanda found all these great baby design blogs that helped direct us in our decision making. So once we were done we decided to submit photos of Theo's room, and it was picked up by Project Nursery!

Check their profile of Theo's nursery, featuring some of these choice photos below.

And here are a few extra detail shots of some of our favorite features of the room that were not included, including the wild Jonathan Adler light fixture.


Thanks to Molly for the beautiful mobile and to Melissa for the lovely and unique Japanese kokeshi. And of course, our thanks to Moomer again for creating the incredible crib bedding that is such a focal point of the room.
