My nephew was born yesterday, which puts me in the mood to discuss baby stuff. I was mooning over baby clothes and noticed that all the cute HATS are coming in.
Raccoon hat (photo from TheChildrensPlace.com), $7.95. When it came down to the final decision I’d almost certainly get the bear, but it’s nice to have a novel choice!
Owl hat (photo from TheChildrensPlace.com), $8.95. This time I’d choose the owl over the bear.
Critter Ear Hat (photo from OldNavy.com), $5.94. I am fond of ear hats for babies, and this one comes in both pink and blue.
Pumpkin hat (photo from OldNavy.com), $3.94. Pumpkin hats are so perfect for fall: perfect for pumpkin-patch photo opportunities, for trick-or-treating, AND for general daytime cuteness.
Plaid earflap hat (photo from Gymboree.com), $18.95. I had a hat similar to this one for my youngest when he was a baby. It’s one of the few things I instantly paid full-price for rather than waiting a month and getting it on clearance (though, it was from The Children’s Place, so “full-price” was more like $6.99): I tried it on the baby for fun, and I was at the register with it less than 30 seconds later. I think was something about the way the chin strap plumped out the cheeks, contrasting with the straight line across the forehead.
Chick beanie (photo from Crazy8.com), $5.95 on sale for $3.99. (1) Adorable, (2) inexpensive, (3) also comes in bear and panda and skunk, as well as monkey:

Mouse hat & mittens (photo from BodenUSA.com), $38.00. Awww, mousies!
Zutano Piccadilly cars hat (photo from Amazon.com), $10.00.
Zutano owls hat (photo from Amazon.com), $9.50. I especially like the car and owl caps, because I have Amazon Prime, so I can ship one spontaneously with no shipping cost. It drives me crazy to pay, say, $5 shipping on a $3 hat. Er, even though that would still be less than the $10 hat, now that I think of it.
