The Adventure Starts Here: Pajama Party

Pajama Party

Yesterday, our Halloween Pajama & Costume Party Linkup officially started!  To kick off the party, I shared Noah's three (yes 3!!!) costumes that he will be dressing up in this Halloween.  While Noah has three costumes this year, his pajama selection isn't as extensive this year.  Right now, Noah's in that weird size.  In regular clothes, he's wearing either a 5T in toddler or an XS in the big kid section. But when it comes to pajamas, he always needs to go up at least one size for them to fit comfortably.  So that means we are now officially in the big kid section when it comes to pajamas.  Unfortunately, that means less of the fitted sets Noah has grown to love and the Halloween pairs I found tended to be on the scarier side (and Noah isn't really a fan of the scary).  The only pajamas that we still love for his size are Hanna Andersson pajamas.  But since they are on the pricier side, I prefer to buy pairs that he can wear year round rather than just 4-6 weeks out of the year.  So this year I got a little creative...

First up, Noah is going through a huge super hero phase right now, as evidenced by his costume choices!  So I decided to keep that trend going and get him this pair of Batman pajamas.  And I figured since Noah's dressing up as superheroes for Halloween, why couldn't these be considered Halloween pajamas too ;)

This next pair of pajamas is an even bigger stretch at being considered "Halloween pajamas".  Another current obsession for Noah is camo.  And while camo has become a huge part of Noah's daily wardrobe, for some reason I still think of it as dressing up.  Like he's dressing up as a soldier or a hunter.  So if you go with that premise, than these pajamas are sort of like dress up, which is what Halloween is all about.  Or I'm just a crazy person who didn't get my child Halloween pajamas and now I'm just making up stuff to feel better.  You can be the judge ;)  Nevertheless, I love these pajamas and I'm excited for Noah to wear them all winter long!  

 And yes, I let Noah wear his pajamas out in public to go on our neighborhood walk!  
The camo pajamas are also Hanna Andersson, but no longer online.  

Noah is either upset that I didn't buy him real Halloween pajamas or he is just tired of me taking photos of him.  Trust me when I say that it's because of the latter!  

But in honor of Rewind Friday, I thought I would go back to a time when Noah actually had a few pair of Halloween pajamas to wear throughout October!  

last year's Pajama Party linkup

And since I shared Noah's costumes yesterday and can't turn down a good throwback, here are some photos of Noah dressed up for past Halloweens!  Noah's first Halloween was just 2 days shy of turning 1, and he was the cutest pumpkin in the patch.  For his second Halloween, he was a heroic fire fighter.  And finally, last year Noah was an astronaut.  In the past, I would look through the Pottery Barn Kids catalog and let Noah "help" me pick out his costume.  This was the first year that Noah had real ideas and opinions on his costume, hence the switch from PBKids to Party City ;)

Now it’s your turn to link up some of your favorite overlooked posts for the last time. Yes, you read that right... Beth, Whitney, Stephanie and I have decided that it's time for the Rewind Friday linkup to end. We've had fun revisiting our old posts and reading yours, but all good things must come to an end. And to those of you who have faithfully linked up, THANK YOU!

  1. OMG, the throwback photos are pulling at my heartstrings. He has grown up so much. LOVE his camo pajamas. Those are so awesome and I think they can totally be considered Halloween jammies. :)

  2. He is so cute ;) Love the pJS :) Chelsea @

  3. Okay friend…you find the cutest jams for little boys. I love them all. Especially the pair with the black and white striped pants. And those camo ones are among my favorites! I know I say this every time I talk to you, but Noah is so precious. I just love him!

  4. We wear pj's in public ALL THE TIME! :) Too cute!

  5. We are in the same exact situation with Owen. He can fit into a 5T right now, but it's often too short and he will be out growing it in a week, so I have been buying all of his fall and winter clothes in the boys' section -- and I agree that the stuff just is not as cute. I was bummed about the pjs too. I have so loved all the cute ones from Gap and ON over the years. Carter's actually sells pretty cute ones all the way up to 10T! It's a nice option when all that Hanna Anderson gets too $$$!

  6. I HATED when my girls left the toddler department. Things just get so much more espensive :(. Love all of those throw back photos. of Noah.

  7. Hanna Andersson pjs are my favorite! I love his Batman pjs!
