10 months

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetWell, the time has come where my squealing, bouncing, happy babe is another month older. This last month seemed to go exceptionally fast given that we were preoccupied with preparing for Christmas. Remy’s personality has also changed so much over the last few weeks. I honestly feel as if I’m dealing with a completely different baby (in the best way possible, of course).

She’s accomplished so many milestones lately. Here is a list of the bigger ones:

– She got two teeth! I wished for one last month, and my wish (and then some) came true
– She now walks by herself along furniture
– She crawls FORWARDS

– She pulls herself up from a seated to standing position
– She is learning to feed herself with a spoon

I know I always say that I love her more with each passing month, but it’s so true. She went from being a cute and serious baby to now being the biggest ham around. She shows off in her Kindermusik class by sitting in the middle of the circle, screeching, clapping, and growling at people. As soon as her dad comes home at the end of the day, she starts showing off for him as well. It’s adorable, and it’s all happened over the last month. I love it!

Enjoy your week! I hope that you nab some amazing sales. :-)))

mommy and me: christmas ootd

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetLast year, I compiled a Christmas outfit list that I desperately wanted to buy and wear. This year, I put together an actual outfit that I will be wearing. 

This OOTD is both practical and coordinated with my littlest. My dress was purchased from Choies. While light grey definitely doesn’t hide any flaws, I just adore the colour.

Remy’s cute onesie was actually purchased from the grocery store. It has a wonderful sparkle to it that makes it look dressier than a regular onesie. Her thick tights are from The Children’s Place.

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetI don’t always match my daughter like this. However, it’s Christmas, and if ugly sweaters are fashionable, then so are matching outfits. At least in my world.

See you next week!

it’s beginning to look a lot like christmas

christmas-2016-1Hey, everyone! Did you know that there are only twelve more days until Christmas? This holiday season not only marks the first Christmas that we’re celebrating with a baby, but also the first one that we’re celebrating with a tree! Somehow that seems to make it more official.

christmas-2016-2Our home is looking pretty festive. Not as festive as many other homes, but extremely festive for our standards. Since we’re establishing a wide variety of traditions this year, decorating our home seemed like another important one to start. So far, we put up Christmas lights, hung a wreath on our door, and purchased a little outdoor plant.

christmas-2016-7Inside our home is a different story. We set up and decorated a tree, wrapped some gifts, hung tree lights, and put scented candles all over the house.

christmas-2016-6christmas-2016-5We bought a fair number of ornaments for the tree this year, sticking to a white, black, and gold theme. Because we had to start from scratch, we also didn’t want to buy too many. I think that it would be fun to add to our collection each year, in addition to whatever Remy will make us as she grows older.

christmas-2016-8It will also be fun to look back at pictures of our tree every year and see how it’s changed. Honestly, I feel as if life is so much more exciting with a child! Why did we wait so long to have one?

(Early) Merry Christmas, all!
