Mother's Day is Coming

With Mother's Day approaching in a couple of weeks, it has made me reflect on my first full year of being a mom. First thought? I survived!

I never imagined how much my life would change once we decided to become parents. Of course, it has changed in the most beautiful ways.

This year has been amazing. I have learned so many things about myself and it feels good to have a year under my belt. It has definitely gone by fast and I am amazed at how much Ava has grown and learned.

And the most important point? This year has definitely not been easy, but it has been the most fulfilling experience. Ava has given me everything. And being a mom is not the same without my supportive husband and partner. It definitely makes my job easier to have Noah there to help.

I hope that I am doing a good job so far. I guess I won't know that until Ava is older. I will always try my hardest and try to teach her to make the best decisions. I look forward to the challenges and the big moments.

To another awesome year!

what I wore wednesday

This week I am linking up with Lindsey, from The Pleated Poppy and creator of the "what i wore wednesday" (wiww) blog series, for some fashion inspiration.

This is my first post, but a couple of posts ago I mentioned I wanted to be held accountable for putting an outfit together instead of my usual blah ensembles.

I meant to start taking pictures last week but I didn't have a full length mirror and I wasn't quite happy with how my pictures were turning out.

Anyways, I finally found success today. So this is what i wore today. It's a start :)

dress: Old Navy
short sleeve mini cardigan: Forever 21
rosette necklace: Allora Handmade

Love love love these two.

More egg hunting in her Sunday best. What a cutie.

Weekend Wrap-up

My weekend wrap-up via Instagram.

Saturday bath time with my silly monkey.

Tried Burger King's new chicken nuggets. Not Impressed.

Finally watched the latest Harry Potter. Awesome, as expected.

Finished Ava's first Easter Basket :)

Cracker Barrel breakfast. Yummy!

Silly time with mommy.

Coke Float, that's what's up!

Trip to the ER with the hubby :(

Inspiration Station

I feel like I get lazy when it comes to getting dressed. Being a mom (no excuse), I usually go for the quick tank and shirt with a pair of jeans. I am especially lazy when it comes to shoes. You can usually find me in a pair of flip flops or black flats.

My goal is to do better. I can still dress cute on a budget and still be a functional mommy right?

my inspiration:

First, I found several similar outfits online that I have in my closet already.

and second, I love the idea of taking pictures of my outfits. That gives me some accountability for making the attempts to put a decent outfit together. I don't love all these outfits, but just like how this lady used her camera.

I'm going to try this next week :)

It's actually making me feel excited to go into my closet!

Baby Fever

I can probably count on two hands how many people I know that are pregnant right now. There must be something in the water. And I will admit it's making me want to be pregnant again. It makes me miss getting excited when you first find out, rubbing my Buddha belly, hearing the first heartbeat, seeing the baby for the first time, and feeling the baby flutter inside.

Noah and I are not actively planning but we are also not purposely preventing this time around.

Some may think it's too soon, but right now I would be okay with being pregnant again. I don't want to get to the point where I'm over it. Let's face it. Pregnancy is not all flowers and unicorns all the time. There was the sacrifices, the swollen feet, bed rest, stretch marks, morning sickness.... the list goes on and on. So I don't want to get to the point I don't want to go through that again. I also don't know how easy it will be to even have another baby and I don't want to be so confident and be disappointed.

So that's what I have been feeling lately.... Ava could use a sibling right?

So I guess stay tuned...

Sick baby

Ava caught a stomach bug this past weekend. It was awful for her and awful for me. It was a weekend full of throw-up (twice in public), explosive diapers, and one cranky, pitiful baby. It started on Saturday and took over on Sunday. I stayed home with her yesterday and Noah had her today. Of course Noah had no puke or leaky diapers to change. I think we may be in the clear so she goes back to daycare tomorrow. My poor baby. I hate when she's sick.

These pictures are from Sunday. If she wasn't puking or having her diaper changed, she was sleeping.

Thank goodness the storm has finally passed.

My Easter Bunny

I found a bunny in our backyard. Noah said we could keep her. Cutest bunny ever. Hands down.
