Girls’ clothes, a slippery slope

December 29th, 2011

The other day I picked up a few new tops for Ella at Target. A darling plaid tunic shirt that looked so cute on her with leggings.

And she also got a very cute fuscha and white striped boyfriend cardigan. Steve – it’s only called that because it’s meant to be kinda big and long, don’t get scared! And I can’t find a photo of that particular item. So you’ll have to take my word on it that she wore it well.

So when I got an email from zulilly about their seasonal sale, I figured maybe I should pick up a little something for Eva. I mean, I don’t want to be unfair!

BTW, if you don’t know what zulilly is, it basically is a site that combines a whole lot of stores’ sales. And they are over-the-top cute, expensive clothes, but if you swoop in quickly you can get some good deals. Tell them I sent you if you check it out here. I think I may get a discount!

So, I picked up these two cute little dresses.

I can just see her in pigtails in this polka-dot dress with the red-heart buttons. So cute.

But now, I am wondering if I made a huge mistake passing up these other darling items. I do get free shipping the rest of the day …

For Christmas next year?

Happy Birthday baby girl

December 22nd, 2011

Can’t believe my baby is 2 today. I don’t miss those many sleepless nights, but I would really love to hold that little baby again. Luckily she still loves to cuddle.

Look at that tiny girl!

This was the drive home on Dec. 24, 2009. You’re never as nervous driving as you are when you drive a 7-pound 2-day old home from the hospital.

These may have been the longest 3 days of my life in that little hospital room, waiting for her to get better.

Having two kids is a real adjustment. And honestly this is one of the few days in their lives they both napped at the same time!

I have a million pictures of her laying in my boppy pillow. No wonder she likes to have lots of pillows in her bed now.

At seven weeks, she was really starting to fill out.

My two girls.

Love you Eva! Can’t wait to celebrate tonight.

Dance class

December 19th, 2011

Ella’s taking ballet and tap this year. Surprisingly she likes the tap better than ballet. And this is the first class she’s taken where I don’t stay and watch. I leave her there! It felt really weird at first. The parents are invited to watch a few times over the year though. I was impressed by the 3 instructors. They have everything under control and the kids area learning a lot. Eva, on the other hand, was out of control. Are you surprised?

Little surprises

I love when I find some surprise photos on my phone. Especially when they’ve just put on purple chapstick and look especially silly.
