I can’t believe how quickly December is flying by and that Naiya is officially 15 months old!  She just made it through her first ear infection this week so we’ve been laying low.  For the girl who almost always sleeps on schedule, putting her to bed this week was a million times harder! I’d put her in her crib half asleep and she’d wake right up and cry her eyes out while she clinged to me for dear life.  Now that she’s on the mend, I’m excited to finally be able to sleep tonight without staring at the baby monitor every five minutes (new mamas, you know what I mean!). Sharing our latest outfit post with you today featuring one of my favorite skirts of the moment and the cutest hand-embroidered blue and white dress on Naiya. Scroll down to the bottom of this post for a 15 month baby update too.


Nine weeks into parenthood–just when we thought we would never sleep again–we are ecstatic to share that Naiya slept through the night for the first time! For those of you who have been following along, you know that Naiya has had digestion problems since soon after birth and we’ve been trying to get to the bottom of them. We started her on a new medication this week and a few days into it, she has finally slept more than 3-4 hours at a time! We still don’t have all of the answers but this is definitely progress! 


We’re still waiting for this baby to come! Our official due date is now just a few days away–August 24th–and the anticipation is like nothing we’ve ever experienced before. I close my eyes every night wondering if tonight will be the night and I wake up every morning wondering if today will be the day.  Since it’s been too hard to make any substantial plans over the past couple of weeks because of baby watch, Phil and I have mostly been staying put, nesting away and decorating our new home. Sharing some sneak peaks of our kitchen and living room today with more photos to come, as well as a fun collaboration.



Today was one of those days where I looked in my closet, rummaged through all of my clothes and came to the conclusion that I had absolutely nothing to wear. I don’t know about you but no matter how many clothes are in my closet at any given time, this happens to me at least a few times a week. Today, I’m sharing an easy solution to this problem that can help you to revamp the clothes you already own in just a few minutes without spending any extra moolah.

I can’t wait to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family on the east coast later this week. It’s been such a busy few months that I’m finding myself counting down the minutes until Phil and I are able to come up for air even for just a little bit.  We’re thankful for so many things this year and we truly can’t wait to be able to slow down to enjoy some very overdue time with loved ones.
