Little Moments

A couple little moments from this week: 

This week we’ve been working on a better bedtime routine. Amelia has
gotten in the habit of waking up at 3 am and then staying up….It has
definitely been making for a tired momma. Amelia loves baths, so we’ve
been trying to fit one in before bedtime…she is big fan of the bubble

This week the weather has been sunny and pretty warm, so we’ve been taking her baby bike out to check the mail and do wheelies in the driveway. She loves this Sofia the First hoodie she got for her birthday. It’s the one thing she will keep on her head. 
Other little moments: Playing at Toys R Us, eating lots of blueberries, saying “baby”, watching Frozen, eating cheese quesadillas at a restaurant, getting her big girl car seat.



We went to the corn maze this weekend. Amelia was excited about ponies and chickens, and less excited about pumpkins. I rode a cow train with her, which was basically barrels pulled by a tractor (there’s a video on Instagram). Sadly they were out of corn, which was weird.

What did you do this weekend?



This weekend we took Amelia to a pumpkin patch….she hated it! It may have been a combination of the outfit she was wearing was too hot, and it was too close to nap time. We sat her down by a big pumpkin and she cried, but she liked the tiny pumpkins she could hold. There wasn’t a single smile from her in any picture.

This weekend we have plans to go to the corn maze with friends. I’m hoping we can get around early enough for her to enjoy it. There will be pumpkins, a small petting zoo, and hay rides. I can’t wait to eat some grilled corn!

Have you ever been to a corn maze? I mostly go for the food…



Amelia is a sassy girl with a super funny personality. She has started walking more, but not consistently. She enjoys talking, especially to her dad. I think she’s telling him about her day when he’s at work. She also likes to think she’s picking things up and eating them, like light and freckles. It’s hilarious. I can’t believe she’s going to be 10 months old in a couple weeks! Stay tuned for lots of fall fun with Amelia. I can’t wait to share my favorite time of the year with her!




Yesterday we went grocery shopping and just had to take pictures in front of all the pumpkins. Amelia got a little pumpkin that met an unfortunate end in produce, by the potatoes.

We tend to buy our pumpkins a little later in October for two reasons: 1. Neighborhood hooligans like to steal them out of our yard. 2. I want to get to carving, and they get all gross before Halloween. A few years ago, we had an awesome Halloween party where we all dressed up and carved pumpkins, that would be fun to do again this year.

I can’t wait to take Amelia to the pumpkin patch and the corn maze. I’m thinking for Halloween she might be Lucy Ladybird, from her favorite bedtime story. I already have a cute ladybug costume, I would just need to add some colored spots.

Amelia had a cute play date with baby Lucy today. They were just too cute!


What are you going to carve into your pumpkin? I’ll provably do Hello Kitty like I do every year.



This photo was taken yesterday. Poor Amelia has been under the weather the past few days, but is feeling much better today. I found that huge Pinkie Pie at Hobby Lobby. She lit up when I gave it to her, totally worth the $15 for a stuffed animal.

She’s been pretty much getting into everything, and is a very smart cookie. She figured out she can move things, like chairs or laundry baskets, and climb on top of them to reach things she wants. She also likes to help me fold laundry, which means she grabs and throws the clothes I’ve already folded. Her and Loki have been getting along, even though she is constantly trying to pull his tail or take his collar off. He has been very sweet and gives her lots of puppy kisses. I can’t believe she is already 9 months old! It’s crazy how time flies…..

Saturday Style Moodboard #3

My mission for this Saturday is to get myself to Hobby Lobby for some alone time. It’s been a rough week in the baby department with the worse case of diaper rash and the reason for it (believe me, you don’t want to know!). On this rare occasion, I hope to cut my bangs and possibly dye my hair a fun color. (Although I picked a random fun color to go with this outfit, I am actually dying it Enchanted Forest.)

I have this weird habit of dressing like a crazy person to go to Hobby Lobby. I even asked my husband for a top hat once and he asked where I would wear it…”Hobby Lobby of course!” was my answer. I never got the top hat, but I do have one of those equestrian riding hats, I wore it to make Thanksgiving dinner one year…

It’s been cooler in these parts, and I couldn’t be more excited! A nice long sleeved and short combo is your best bet when the weather can’t decide to pick a season. As it starts getting cooler I will start pairing tights with my shorts. I can’t leave home without my reusable tote and a million things in my purse that I possibly will never need or use…but I will eat that cupcake (am I the only person who goes around with a cupcake in her purse?).

Something Yummy:
This may sound weird, but my new Burt’s Bees Blueberry and Dark Chocolate chapstick smells so amazing that it’s yummy!

Something Disturbing: I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but baby diaper rash! I just let Amelia wander around naked it was/is that bad, and I think the coconut oil is helping. Cross your heart and kiss your elbow it gets better soon…

Something New: I am sponsoring over at Talk 2 The Trees, and I couldn’t be more excited! Check out her blog and Etsy shops! I just ordered a super cute crocheted hat from her that I can’t wait to wear. Rachael is also having an awesome Art Sale on original pieces!

Something I’m Watching: We’ve been watching Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and our copy of Supernatural Season 8 just came in the mail today!
