We had some new family pictures taken in May and they’re the best! They capture Blaire’s little personality perfectly. This stage of our life is so fun. Blaire has so much fun with her mom and dad. I’m loving this time when she thinks we are super cool! ;) We are lucky to have a photographer who is so amazing with children. She kept telling Blaire, “don’t laugh!” and, of course, Blaire would crack up laughing! She loved being the center of attention and was happy to run around for the camera… until she noticed the dandelions. Then she had to pick them all!
Sometimes, when mama doesn’t feel well, it means PJs, popcorn and Paw Patrol in bed at 5PM. And sometimes, your toddler, who you still consider to be your little baby, is just so, so adorable. And that makes you realize you don’t care how terrible you feel. You just have to take some pictures and capture these sweet, sweet moments. Tonight was one of those nights. I felt terrible all day, but had back-to-back meetings most of the day, so I had to tough it out. But, you bet the moment we got home, we changed into our PJs and jumped in bed with some popcorn.
Our backyard is one of our favorite places to be in the Spring and Summer. For me, I’m happy to just sit out on the deck with a book. For Blaire, she needs a little more to keep her entertained. Toddlers… so needy. ;)
I was looking around our backyard the other night and realized every. single. thing. in our yard is Little Tikes. (FYI, This post is NOT SPONSORED, we just happen to love them!) Some items have been hand-me-downs, while others are new. And some of these hand-me-downs are 5+ years old and are still in amazing condition. I love that outdoor toys can be used forever! Some of them have been ours for more than one summer and she still finds them fun. (Photos below from Summer 2016 and Summer 2015 for proof) so it makes it easier to invest in them, knowing they aren’t going to be old news in a month or two.
We LOVE bows around here. Lately we’ve just been grabbing whatever we see at Target or Carters, which is fine, but they don’t exactly switch it up often… Which is boring! While I was on my work trip in Atlanta, my time in the hotel each night gave me time to online shop. I found the Little Poppy Co bow subscription and I had to order it. Well, we got our June subscription and they’re adorable. The Chambray bow is our FAVE because, well, Chambray goes with everything! And these little nylon headbands are so cool! They weren’t even a thing when Blaire was a baby and now they’re everywhere. I love that they’re a one size fits all.
