  • A few weeks back, we did a story on this adorable baby who sleeps so soundly that her mom can dress her up like pop-culture icons (we especially love her version of Eleven from the hit Netflix show Stranger Things). Last week, we featured twins whose mom has a knack for Nezo Art, or the art of posing while asleep (you can actually make stories about the funny way they positioned themselves while napping). And now we have super adorable triplets who are having their own costume moment!

    Meet Penelope, Ethan and Alejandra, or PEA, the six-month-old triplets of Jeremy and Ali Hynek from Orange County. The first-time mom, who also happens to be the creative director founder of handprinted textile bag company Nena & Co. was really excited about dressing up her babies, but she was also overwhelmed with the infinite three-way costumes ideas for her triplets. "I couldn’t decide which costumes to pick since there were so many things we could do in groups of three!" she told The Huffington Post. 

    So Ali reached out to her friend Brittany Jepson of The House that Lars Built (if you want to perk up your day, you just need to check out her Instagram) to make costumes for the three babes. "The most important thing to me was that we use a lot of pajamas since that’s what every mom already has in stock. I wanted to make costumes that other moms felt like they could make at home or at least would invest in the PJ’s and feel like they could use them afterwards!" Ali said. Britanny also shared the DIY instructions on her blog to help moms recreate the triplet's look. These are our favorites:

    Little Ethan had no choice but to be one of the blooms in a bouquet of three. 


    Ali admits this set is her favorite and one of the easiest to make.


    Just for a costume idea, but not for the babies to drink!

    Of course, superhero costumes are always an option for Halloween dress-ups.

    The triplets did well during their photoshoot with photographer Anne Marie Killian, considering some costumes involved a lot of details. Ali said her babies are used to being photographed together side-by-side as she's been using Instagram as a memory book to document their growth. Still, "when you have triplet babies you have to be very organized so that everyone keeps their sanity, so I have very specific times that I was able to dress them up and change them so that they didn’t get too irritated," she explained.

    Ali says she just wanted to create fun memories for PEA, so the siblings have something to look back on when they're all grown. However, if people at least flash a smile when they see their photos or get inspired to copy the costumes, then that's even better, she said.
