a better night with bambino mio

one of the biggest reasons we made the decision to use cloth diapers with annabelle was because cloth diapers are made of natural fibers {like cotton} and are much more gentle than disposable diapers. but because there are no harmful chemicals involved they’re just not as absorbent as disposable diapers. typically this is fine for during the day – we make it a rule to not go longer than 2 hours without changing annabelle’s diaper. but at night there’s a little bit more work required to keep her dry.

little black dress

i fully believe that a little black dress can be the answer to many a wardrobe question. black makes me feel comfortable yet elegant {but still cool} and the cut of this particular dress is extremely flattering. i love that the v-cut and lace detail make it interesting enough to stand out while still being a classic piece. ken and i went downtown for a little date night and i’m so glad we were able to capture the vibrancy that is this gem of a city in the summer.

annabelle, 21 months

you guys, my baby is almost two. TWO! it’s funny because whenever someone asks annabelle how old she is and she says ‘one’ i think it sounds so weird. maybe because her first birthday seems like it was years ago but she definitely seems older than one! most days ken and i agree that she’s more like a teenager, sometimes in a good way and sometimes well you know…

a day at the zoo with thredup

over the weekend we went to one of our favorite places, the detroit zoo! we have an annual membership and try to go as often as we can. good or bad the zoo is pretty small so you can see a lot in just a few hours. plus annabelle is going through a phase {ok, it’s been going on since she could walk} where she prefers to be out of her stroller and exploring on her own. i love that she’s so curious but chasing her around gets exhausting for everyone! in this case we had a lovely morning and were home by naptime, the perfect day!

annabelle, 20 months

i had a realization the other day that annabelle is finally starting to feel less like a baby and more like an actual person. i don’t want to be one of those parents that tries to be ‘friends’ with their kid{s} but i thought to myself wow, i actually like hanging out with this little lady! she’s talking more and ceratinly has more opinions about things and is just the light of every day for us! here are a few things i want to remember.
