Cute closet dividers

When I was pregnant with my son, I searched for tutorials on making cute little closet dividers. We were "team green" however, so I waited until after he was born to complete this project. I LOVE his nursery, but figured there was enough green. :)

They are used to seperate the different sizes of clothes in his closet. Since my "little guy" was nearly 10 pounds at birth and I returned ALL of the newborn sized clothes I had purchased for him (thank goodness I only washed two pairs of jammies, everything else still had the tags!) I didn't make a NB divider!
I basically followed this tutorial.

I couldn't for the life of me find the right sized wooden O's at any of my local craft stores. I did however realize that Hobby Lobby sells them online! Major score!

I decided to go all "boy" and painted them blue.

I then traced the Os onto scrapbook paper and cut out. (I didn't do the best job of this.)

Using my cricut (which seems so "last year"... I'd love a silhouette, but can't justify it) I cut out the sizes for each O on blue vinyl.

To hang on your closet rod simply lift out the rod and slide the dividers on, then start organizing clothes!

In the blink of an eye

Our little man turned TWO months old on the 7th!

Here are the pictures from his big day. I made him his two month bodysuit. (Again following the saddle cloth color scheme, for thoroughbred horse racing, mentioned in this post).

Here he is getting "over it". I just love this little pouty face... he is really such a sweet natured baby. I sometimes feel like a bad mom because I will laugh when I see his lower lip starting to push it's way out!

This pose is what my husband refers to as the "I can't take it anymore".

This picture seriously melts my heart. The way his hand is on the monkey's head... so precious! This little monkey blanket was a gift from good friends... my mom has already purchased a "backup" monkey blankie for him. I know at this point he can't really be attached to it, but I swear he sleeps so much better when it's in his lap. It's so soft and cuddly!
