the red dress

Red Dress OOTD - 3Now that my body is ever-changing, I have come to the conclusion about a couple of things in my wardrobe. One is that I really love the colour red. The second is that I hate mini dresses.

Pre-prenatal, I used to only wear dresses.  Most of my frocks tended to be long sleeve, but with a shorter hemline. This would allow me to be able to wear them all year and throughout the changing seasons. If the weather was cold then I would roll down my long sleeves, put on thick leggings and chunky boots. If it was warm, my sleeves would go up and I would forgo leggings and stick with flats. Now, I no longer want to draw attention to my legs. I feel as if I am getting bigger everywhere, and so I want to cover up my pins and put them away until the baby arrives. 

Red Dress OOTD - 4This will probably be the last mini dress that I purchase until after Spring. It will not be my last wine-coloured dress, however. If I can no longer drink it, then I will have to resort to wearing it. :-)

Happy Friday the 13th, everyone!

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • A horribly blurry picture that pretty much sums up our week together. It's been 5 days and our home is nearly flu-free. Dada is off working in a different province, (smiles aside) Remy is not happy with me today, our house is a renovation disaster, and I have a photography session scheduled tomorrow that I'm not yet sure if I need to hire a babysitter for. I'm not going to lie, I'm really looking forward to this week being over with. It was not easy, however that's life. There is so much that I do have to be thankful for! We are in good health 99% of the time. My husband finally has a great job. I am lucky to be able to work when I want at what I want. We have a house. Most importantly, I have my little goose to snuggle with. I sincerely hope that if anyone else is having a bad day/week/month/year, that you can also find the silver lining. Our own life is not for everyone, nor is it Instagram perfect. If we're lucky, it is the one that we desire, even in the difficult times. Enjoy your weekend! Thank goodness for breastfeeding. My darling caught her first flu yesterday. I tried giving her bland foods and drinks all day- she wouldn't touch them. Then I tried her favourites- still nothing. Instead, all she wanted to do was nurse round the clock. That is how we spent the majority of the day- nursing, bathing, cuddling, barfing, repeating.
My goal was to breastfeed Remy until she was 18 months old. After that I had no plans. As she is nearing month 19 earthside, I've discovered that she has no intention of stopping. 
On the rare occasions when she's sick, I'm reminded of why we have kept it up for this long, and why we keep on going. I'm almost certain that she would've become dehydrated yesterday if it wasn't for me nursing her. So although fed is best, the breast is truly a gift.
