This bebe is two years old and has a mind of her own. She has a POV on all things, including how we pronounce words, what we should eat, where we should sit, and more recently, what she should wear. This extends to everything from her pajamas, to her socks, to her panties (#pottytraining), to the bow in her hair.
And to the shoes – THE SHOES. The other day I was breaking down a shoe box for recycling when she dashes over to me and squeals, “Mama, you got me new shoes?!”
I’ve created a monster (and sidekick).
P.S. One of my more humbling sartorial pursuits as of late was this jumpsuit.

It’s been over 6 months since I last posted. Bebe has grown a lot. A LOT.
How can I even summarize at this point? Try, try, try:
- She walks (she runs)
- She wears a ponytail
- She eats (and eats)
- She pets the dogs
- She dances
- She talks (well, some)
- She has teeth we brush
- She has nails we cut
- She holds my hand
- She has stinky feet
Man, I love this girl.

I love fashion, but I usually don’t know what I’m doing. I’m great with shoes, awful with accessories, and mediocre with everything else. For example, I really do own nice handbags, but I honestly use a backpack 6 out of 7 days of the week. Whether it’s a diaper bag or laptop bag, it’s typically my bag of choice.
I wear the same jewelry every day. I live in jeans. My baby is in a onesie plus leggings 99% of the time.
In other words, these outfits took so much effort (too much effort). Now I remember why blogging is hard.
But tying a jacket around my daughter’s waist makes it way worth it. WAY.
