P has been asking me to make her a fairy costume for a while now. I’ve never made any kind of tutus or this kind of costume so I was a little gun shy to try. But since we had the long weekend I thought I’d go for it. When we were in the … Continue reading Vidia Costume
Yesterday Dave took P to school for a Father’s Day celebration. She was so proud to take her Papa and he was so honored to go. These moments melt my heart. To think that Dave didn’t want kids when we first met. He is so amazing with her it blows my mind. I’ve visualized becoming … Continue reading Father’s Day at School

P was wearing one of my favorite dresses and we bought the hat and shoes that very day at Jumping Jellyfish. Hat: Sand Cassel Kids Dress: Tea Collection Shoes: Livie … Continue reading Favorite Outfits
The first weekend in April we went to Vegas. Dave had to scout the strip for a movie so P and I tagged along. Trips that are primarily for Dave’s work can be tough. It’s hard to juggle his work needs and P’s needs. This trip was actually better than most. And I’m glad we … Continue reading Vegas…Not so good for baby.
