I’m not gonna lie, I think Cameron had a better time taking pictures this time around than Kayla. He went crazy for the little pool and he loves anything with wheels so he was in heaven. Although not so much into the pictures, Kayla IS very much into learning about the United States. She’s learned the names of all 50 states and now wants to know who lives in each state and what’s there. Needless to say we do not know people in all 50 states so we’ve resorted to naming politicians. She keeps us on our toes with her seemingly endless questions but we love her unquenchable desire to learn.

As for the clothes, Kayla picked out her own Gymboree outfits so she of course loved those. And her love for headbands continues. The bow dress that I picked out was not her favorite because apparently bows are cute but only when they’re tiny. She hated the big blue bow on her dress even though it’s clearly adorable.

Kayla is excited to celebrate 4th of July this year and is so ready for red, white and blue popsicles and fireworks. I had thought last year was going to be the year she’d finally love fireworks but she didn’t like the sound! We watch them from about 2 miles away so I have no idea why the sound scared her but she’s let us know that she’s not afraid this year. We’re probably not going to let the little “zilla” as we call him stay up for the show as he needs every bit of sleep he can get! Until next year for his reaction.

We wish everyone a very happy and safe 4th of July!!!



One more because he loved it that much…

And we’re back, it’s been a few crazy months but we’re back. Kayla is growing up so fast, she now loves the camera. If I even pick up my phone (without the intent of snapping her pic) she starts saying, “cheese!” She’s such a ham now and we love it. She was more than excited to put on her little 4th of July outfit this year and especially loved her necklace. Adorning jewelry is one of her latest crazes. She will stand at my jewelry box and put on all my bracelets and necklaces or put on all the dress up jewelry and tiaras in her room. Oh, and she is very particular about her hair styles, this particular style she calls her “Minnie ears”. It’s either this or “Elsa braids” almost every day.

I can’t wait to see her face when she sees the fireworks this holiday. Have a safe and happy 4th!!!



Just Another Nautical Monday




Dress: Les Petits Soleils (no longer available, similar); Sandals: Carters; Headband: Sassy Frass Boutique; Bow: Made By Myself

A little nautical inspiration this Memorial day, the red, white and blue make this a perfect outfit to celebrate in. This would also be cute as a 4th of July outfit. But whether you’re celebrating a holiday, going to the beach or on vacation you can’t go wrong with this dress. It’s just a breath of fresh air.

I hate posting items you can’t currently find online or in stores but then I figure it’s still fashion inspiration and that’s never a bad thing ; )
