like a weed

let us first take a moment to admire this .. the absolute cutest picture EVER!!

moving on ..
the littlest and i went to the grocery store with my mom and my sister today and we were in line behind a very pregnant woman
i found myself thinking how lucky she is to be pregnant

it is funny how that happens .. i loved being pregnant so much and with our medical issues it is possible that i might never be pregnant again .. so i definitely miss it sometimes

don't get me wrong .. i love having the littlest here more than anything

i just sometimes miss being pregnant
i miss having her with me every second of every day
i miss feeling every little move she makes

now she is growing and changing every second of every day

this week she started sleeping in her crib in her own room during the night
she has been sleeping in a bassinet in our room
but she sleeps through the night now {best baby ever!}
and so RT's alarm for work wakes her up and then she stays up listening to him move around the room bathroom and closet while he is getting ready
if she is in her own room she just keeps on sleeping which is what we want :)

i already feel like our time with the littlest is flying by
i am so thankful for every minute that we have with her!!

happy tuesday!!

easy does it

top: patterson j kincaid
skirt: i honestly have no idea .. i have had it a while :)
jacket: mcginn
shoes: seychelles
last week i went back to work for the first time since the littlest was born
i am only going two days a week for just a few hours each day for now but i have been surprised by how i have felt about it so far

it is very two.sided

i have always worked so it is really nice to get out of the house and have some adult conversation
it is nice to go somewhere and accomplish specific tasks
i feel very productive even if all i do is pay a few bills and file some paper work

but .. i seriously miss the littlest when i am gone
like i said .. i am only gone for a few short hours but i am so used to spending twenty four hours a day seven days a week with her that when i don't see her for a few hours if feels like a really long time

we are just easing into it
getting slowly used to spending some time apart :)

happy tuesday!!

two months big

the littlest turned two months old yesterday

we went to the doctor this morning .. she weighs eleven pounds one ounce .. she is twenty two point five inches long .. and she had to have two shots
the shots made her cry really hard but i honestly think it was worse for me than it was for her .. she is pretty dang brave for such a little girl :)

in the last month she has ..
started smiling a lot
rolled over from her tummy to her back several times
gotten herself on a pretty regular schedule
started napping in her crib
realized she loves to watch the dogs
and sleeps five to six hour stretches at night

every second with this little angel baby is so precious to me
i am so glad to be her mommy and to get to experience her life with her

happy two months little pretty!!
we love you!!

happy weekend everyone!!

do you want to know the truth??

the truth is this is what i look like right now
it is twelve o three pm and i am still in my pajamas with my robe on
my hood is up because i am a little chilly
i washed my face in a hurry last night so there is quite possibly still some day old makeup
i have baby spit on my sleeve
and i haven't moved in over an hour

but the littlest is dressed cute with a dry diaper and a full tummy so i feel like i am winning

i have said this before .. i am extremely routine oriented
eight weeks ago i was up ..  dressed with heels on .. a full face of makeup .. and a hot breakfast made by eight o clock every morning
even on the weekends because i am just a morning person and RT and i would likely have a day planned of things to do

but now things are different
now my routine is to wake up and take care of the littlest
to feed her and bathe her and change her and play with her and snuggle her

sometimes that means we don't leave the house all day
sometimes that means i don't get dressed until after noon
sometimes that means i don't put makeup on at all
and most of the time that means i have baby spit on me

not always ..
yesterday we were both up dressed and out of the house by nine thirty in the morning
i had on a cute outfit with makeup and heels
she had on a cute outfit and a bow {it is important to accessorize after all}
and we spent the first half of the day out and about

things are just different now
this fashion blogger is a real life mom
and that isn't always pretty and glamorous
but it is always sweet and special and filled with priceless moments and the unmatched smell of my baby that i love so much
this new routine is my favorite one yet

so from me my pjs and bathrobe and tiny little girl to you ..
happy weekend!!

a perfect fall day

today has been the most perfect fall day

first of all it has literally been raining all day long
we are devastatingly dry here in TX so an all day rain is ah!may!zing!

the rain combined with the cool temps is weather's gift to me

this morning the baby and i cuddled in bed watching the news until RT got home
we stayed in our pjs for way longer than normal
RT snuggled with the littlest while i cooked breakfast consisting of eggs bacon and homemade cinnamon rolls

i went to my first work out class since the baby was born .. it was way hard but it felt so good to be back!!

we had shepherd's pie for lunch
and i watched grease with the littlest because afternoon movies are the best and it is important to introduce her to the classics early {ha!}

now she is napping with her daddy on the couch in a dark cool room surrounded by rainy windows

it really is what fall day dreams are made of ..

happy tuesday!!
