Have I mentioned how cute babies look dressed up as other stuff? Have I mentioned how cute MY baby looks dressed up as other stuff? The images above, taken when Hunter was just three months old, are so ovary-achingly adorable that one of them was featured as the 'Baby of the Week' in the Brisbane Courier Mail's Sunday magazine. There are hundreds of gorgeous photos of beautiful babies sent in every day, but Hunter simply had something none of the others did: Bear Ears. It was a cheap trick but dammit, it worked- and there are four very proud grandmothers and step-grandmothers, and two very proud great-grandmothers as a result.
Let me share with you an undisputable fact: everything looks better with the addition of bear ears.Prove it yourself by dressing your child in any one (or all ) of the following bear suits:

Don't forget eBay- if you go to Categories> Baby> Clothing and search for (ears, bear, rabbit) (copy everything in green- its a boolean search which will bring you back results that include any of those phrases in the title) and then filter the results by gender, size, and clothing type you are guaranteed to find numerous gently loved jackets and rompers at a fraction of the cost of retail.
If you think bear ears look beary nice on kids, perhaps you would like to be a sweet honey bear too? Bear ears on adults are both cute and subversive- and you know how much I love that combination!
