Wardrobe Snapshots

A few snapshots of outfits I've worn lately that have yet, or may not, even make it on here.  I'm not sure how some of you mama's wear your 'real' clothes everyday with little ones…I'm either getting spit-up on or touched with sticky/dirty fingers, making it tough for me to justify extra laundry.  I am making more of an effort to toss on a simple dress instead of work-out clothes, progress...

Wildflower Fields

Up & at 'em! Both girls were up by 6 this morning (hello, third cup of coffee)…perfect for Sadie, considering she slept all night & bad for my sleep-in-until-seven Zoey.  I wore this outfit a few weeks back for a solo outing with the girls to a small farmer's market & then to Panera for lunch.  It was a challenge, to see how I'd manage with both girls at feeding time.  I survived & it went well…I managed to feed all three of us with minimal tears & even less mess (I was shocked). Ahh, mom-life…I love it!

Photo Friday: May 2017 (Part 1)

Recapping the first portion of May leading up to Sadie's arrival.  May was a really special month- my due date month, we had everything ready for baby's arrival, the weather was warming up, my family was coming for a visit, I celebrated my second mother's day, & we made the extra effort to spend time with Zoey or go on mini dates for a few hours…it was perfect.

First Outtings, Post-Sadie

Because we had family here, I made a point to try to get out of the house a little more than we did when Zoey was born.  It also helps that the weather was perfect & sunny most of the time, making staying inside & taking it easy nearly impossible.

Sadie's Here!

I was induced with Zoey, so I really had no clue what going into labor actually meant...until this time! I was up all throughout the night with what I knew were contractions, at least according to my pregnancy app. The Mr. stayed home from work & we took Zoey to her last day of daycare. We took the dogs for a long walk, called the OB ward at the hospital to tell them I was coming for an assessment as the contractions were about 3-4 minutes apart. We showered & went for lunch, I knew they wouldn't let me eat real food if I was admitted (it was the most uncomfortable lunch ever). I was admitted after a brief assessment & the rest is better left for photos...

Always coordinated ;)

Sadie Prep

This week is dedicated to Sadie, mostly because I cannot believe she's been here almost 7 weeks already.  I have a ton of pictures that I just finally got around to sorting & sharing yesterday, meaning I had enough content for like a dozen blog posts. Since we kept the nursery basically the exact same as when Zoey was born, I needed to add a few touches to make it more personal for Sadie.  Here's a few pictures of some prep work we did before she arrived...

A new mermaid doll to call her own & new bedding for the daybed (Both: Target)
The cutest romper, perfect for summer (Baby Gap)
My sister-in-law is the greatest…she crocheted this baby blanket & sent the sweetest card :)
New bottles & soothers (target)
Working on Zoey's big sister gift (Both: Target)
A Big sister book & packing this headband in the baby bag (Book: Chapter's, Bow: Etsy)
Sorting through new presents…Sadie is spoiled! (Bib: Carters, Bouncer: Homesense)
