Button Up Shirt: unknown // Jeans: H&M Maternity // Boots: HauteLook
Those boots just arrived last week and I am obsessed. I’ve been looking to replace my old pair of black boots that I’m not going to lie I got at Walmart on a whim for $20. I got some compliments on them, though, but I wanted something different in terms of style and I’m so happy I got these!
Anyways, a few thoughts on motherhood:
Being a mom is wonderful. It’s a path I always knew I wanted but never believed I was ready for — does anyone ever feel completely ready? Today, I have a six week old. Though the shock has worn off (you know the “can you believe we have one of these?!”), the love lust continues. As Valentine’s Day approaches, I’m seeing a lot of posts about date night ideas and such. I recently read an inquiry about what we do as couples for fun date night ins… well, I certainly recommend adding a newborn. I swear we can be pretty entertained just looking at her and we just love seeing one another as parents.
My husband recently commented I’m different than how he expected I would be. He says I’m more patient and more calm than he predicted. Well, I was a type A, over-analytic, always “on” person before. Now, I definitely would say I’m a wee more go with the flow. He also comments how it comes so naturally to me considering I never read any books (he does that for me). To my credit, I went to nursing school, did two semesters of pediatrics, and then was a nanny/frequent babysitter for two infants. Believe me, before all that I was definitely freaking out about just touching them, similar to how my husband is now.
But six weeks. My goodness. Time sure flies. I can remember that first week so well and I hope to carry those memories with me for a long time.
I dressed her in a Carter’s top, some jean leggings from Gap, and Zutano booties.
Husband thinks she’s just adorable in this outfit. Ignore the fact that her face says she’s fussy. I think she just didn’t want to be in that position but I wanted her face in the picture!
Now that she is finally out of the newborn size and into 0-3 month sizing, I have so much adorableness to dress her in! I’m so excited. Ah, I love having a girl to dress.
