[left to right: the hubs, yours truly, lily olivia, mama bear, papa bear, and sisterface]

monday my parents celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary. 30 years! isn't that amazing?  and last saturday night, we celebrated with friends and family - don't we look good?

to echo my sister's toast, you are the best example of what a marriage should be - we love you!

p.s. this is as close to outfit pics as i get these days, just invited a few more people. i'm wearing an old navy dress [old, from the summer] and f21 necklace. classy.

p.p.s. linking up with the pleated poppy!

mama monday [9 month update]

Monday, December 8, 2014
[9 month parole photo. been out as long as she's been in. we hardcore]

our little roaring tiger turned 9 months on saturday and actually sat still for a picture [like a big girl in the big chair]! this month lily:
  • is still waiting for teeth
  • started "roaring"
  • transitioned to mostly formula and baby food [and nursing morning and night]
  • transitioned to a convertible car seat [and hates it, naturally]
  • still pulling up on everything and just wants to stand
  • attended her first dinner party at a fancy restaurant for my parents' 30th anniversary [and behaved like a champ]
  • mastered the pincer grip and will pick up tiny things like puffs [and lint off the floor...]
lily likes: puffs [aka baby crack], eating of any kind, bedtime routine [she's in bed by 6:30pm], beau, daycare, and roaring at things.

lily dislikes: her new convertible car seat [here we go again], being overtired, not being allowed to crawl where she wants, and getting her diaper changed first thing in the morning.

we've also discovered a bit of an allergy to citrusy foods [all given in beechnut baby food products] and broccoli, so we're holding off on those goodies for now. 

and, as my nursing days come to an end [i've officially stopped pumping, which is so liberating but sad at the same time], i'm realizing that in a few short months my little baby is going to be 1. i can't even believe it.

we love you, little tiger girl, you can roar at us any time.

friday favs [my holiday wishlist]

holiday wishlist

gosh is it that time again? time to give you the jist
and share with you fine folks my little wishlist?
this year i've kept it to just what i need,
and not gone all crazy and giddy with greed.

let's start with my favorite, a pretty new cape
over t-shirts and button downs this sure would drape
like the beautiful necessity that this piece sure is
and by getting it for me you're not gonna miss.

next up are two bags, and i know what you're thinking
does she really need two or has she been drinking?
well the answer is no, well ok  just a couple
see when shopping for bags, better make it a double!

are those ugg slippersyou're probably asking
why, yes, yes they are and they'll be great for basking
in the glow of the fireplace on those cold winter nights
as i'm sitting on the couch and downing wine flights.

now we come to our last item, a beautiful pair
stuart weitzman sure has quite the masterful flair
when it comes to boots that go over the knee
and i bet, no, i know, they'll look great on me!

so to you and your family, may you know only cheer
for this holiday season and into the new year!
and if you're reading this santa, in your jolly red suit,
i've been an awfully good girl, maybe bring me those boots?
