For Lucky's first birthday cake smash, I made him a turtle butt diaper cover and a party hat with a crochet whale and pompom. We have the party hats I made sitting on a floating shelf in Lucky's bedroom. I have been going through the clothing I knit for Lucky so Rowdy can have a chance to wear it (he'll probably wear the same turtle butt at his birthday party). I realized that Lucky might still fit in this diaper cover!
Most kids clothes change in length, not width. The turtle butt cover is a little short, but Lucky had a blast trying on his First Birthday Suit. (I realized later that I chose the wrong hat for him. Whoops!)
Before I decided to make the turtle butt for Lucky's smash cake, I made a wool turtle butt before he was even born. (The smash cake outfit is acrylic so it is machine washable. Most diaper soakers are 100% wool so they can soak up any diaper leaks.) I never really needed a diaper soaker for either boy. They never leaked in the daytime. However, since I had a small and a large turtle butt in the house this means that BOTH Lucky and Rowdy could wear them!
A certain big boy loves his baby brother so much!
I think that Indy was glad that I didn't have a turtle butt for him, too.
It is only the beginning of November but I'm already thinking a lot about Rowdy's first birthday party and smash cake. I don't think I'll be able to have as much DIY at Rowdy's first birthday party, Lucky's first birthday was sure a whale of a party!
