Fall time is a great time to welcome new babies into the world.  I, myself, had a fall baby the first time... and I would have LOVED to have a pumpkin hat for him!!  Halloween babies are so blasted fun!!

  1. That looks so dang cute! Now I wish my baby was still little so I could make it for her and use it in a photo shoot! Maybe I'll have to see how I can alter it for a 1 year old!
