BUMP-FRIENDLY WEDDING GUEST DRESSES

Dressing the bump for weddings and other fancy occasions isn’t always the easiest. It’s hard to pick the dresses out in advance because you never know what size you’ll be.  They also tend to be extra expensive. I attended a wedding this weekend at almost 7 months pregnant and it took me forever to find an outfit I felt comfortable in.  For anyone else in the same boat, linking to my favorite black tutu skirt that fits really well over the bump as well as some other bump-friendly dresses I’m loving right now. Enjoy!

MOM & BABY UPDATE: 17 MONTHS

I can’t believe Naiya is 17-months and will be turning a year-and-a-half on the 30th.  I keep blinking and months seem to be flashing right by.  Naiya is growing like crazy and her little thigh rolls are starting to slim out (cue the ugly tears!) She’s a full-out toddler now and I find myself scrolling through her photos from a few months ago wondering where our baby went. Rounding up our outfits of the day today as well as a mom and baby update.

15 MONTHS IN: MOM AND BABY STYLE

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.
