Thanks! 

The eyes are made from craft felt.  I cut circles in varying sizes and ran a long stitch around the edge.  I pulled the thread to gather the felt around a wad of batting, and secured it with a few stitches.  Then I added a half-circle of the fuzzy blue stuff, to create an eyelid and cover the gathered bit.  (My plan was to attach fake eyelashes to that, but that got shot down--not scary enough.)  I bunched the eyes together in an aesthetically pleasing arrangement and sewed them together, then sewed the bunch onto the head.  Finally, I added Sharpie pupils.  Done like dinner!

The highlight of my evening was putting the baby in the Jolly Jumper where he could bounce in view of the kids at the door.  Bouncy monster fun!

Wow I wish my mom was that crafty when I was little, those costumes are wonderful, and doing it three times, dedication...granted they are your kids. Haha, great mental image of bouncing baby monster.
