Just wanted to share a few sweet photos of our outfits from this week! It’s been really fun to find matching outfits opportunities (like this one) so when I realized that I had ordered us both gingham summer outfits, well, we just had to have a matching day. I knew that I would love to see her in an outfit with bell sleeves, but man, I don’t think my heart was fully prepared for it—it’s ridiculous. Unfortunately that’s the only bell sleeve item I’ve found in her size so far so it may be a bit before I get to see her in another one! Seriously though—how is this a real baby??? I can’t even. Dress/Shein, Shoes/Steve Madden (with poms similar to these), Sunnies/Amazon, Romper/Amazon, Furry Sandals/Amazon (similar)

I think we are pushing through some bottom molars this week as she has been off the charts cranky the last few days and it hasn’t been this bad since we thought she was pushing through her top set. It’s so hard when you want to help them but you aren’t totally sure what’s wrong. I don’t want her to grow up too fast but I’ll be happy for the day when she can tell me what’s bothering her with actual words!! Anyways, we are making some summer memories, but now that it’s almost July I feel like we need to kick that summer bucket list into high gear and really put some more fun at the top of the list. It’s way too easy to fill all our “free time” with laundry, bills, and cleaning up from the day so we need to make sure we have a good balance of being lazy on purpose too 🙂

    It does get a bit easier when they can tell you what’s wrong. Although you still have to be somewhat of a detective. My daughter asked for water one day, then burst into tears because it was “too wet.” Eventually I figure out she meant the cup was wet on the outside, but it was a frustrating few moments until then. And a lot of internal screaming, “of course its wet, its water!” 🙂

    You got this, Mama! Keep up the good work.

    Lola is too cute!!! ? Her hair has become such a pretty blonde color to match her mom! Such adorable outfits!! Hope her cranky teething episode won’t last long!

    Those pom pom heels are the cutest though! Especially with those heart glasses! ❤️ (I must have a weird browser, since I didn’t see the pictures on top at first)

    YES! Miles is almost 8 months and my wife are saying that constantly – I wish he could just tell us what hurts! Love her little bell sleeves <3

    she is soo beautiful!! also, babies can communicate with sign language months before they can communicate out loud. If you want to know whats wrong better, that could be a start! 🙂

      Yes, we do a little bit of that with things like “eat” and “more” but no all the signs have caught on so far!
