Life with Baby: Dr. Seuss Day!

In this post: Our own Seuss inspired foot book, Seuss treats and stories, and a baby Seuss photo shoot. Also, Michael’s Seuss-like poem. Come join us!

Hello dear ones! I’m so excited to share Leeland’s first Dr. Seuss Day with you! He’s 11 months old now! This year we kept it simple and pulled out decorations from previous years. I’ve got links to remind you of those fun times. But first I want to share our:

  • Seuss-inspired Foot Book~ The Foot Book was Leeland’s first Dr. Seuss book. I love baby foot prints and wanted to incorporate that into our Seussical celebrations. Hence, Leeland’s own foot book. I simply photo copied Leeland’s feet with our printer. It’s much easier than paint, and you get to see all the precious details. The first copy was the clearest, so I used it for the front of the book. I used the hole punch to make whimsical confetti. A little yarn finished it up.

We ate:

  • Green deviled eggs 
  • Ham sandwiches
  • Seussical Brownie cakes~ Simply brownies topped with cream cheese frosting and sprinkles.
  • One fish, Goldfish 

Inspired by the books: Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

You can find Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes plus Horton Hears a Who photo shoot here:
