It’s a funny and bittersweet thing – toddlerdom.

For example:

  • When did we go from describing the place she sleeps as a “nursery” to her “room?”
  • When did she start having a preference on which shoes she’d like to wear?
  • When did she learn that she can decide who to kiss?

I’m – at the same time – so wistful about and grateful for how fast she grows. She confounds me daily, this ridiculous creature who made me a mom.

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.

Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I expected finding bebe’s first Halloween costume to be easier. When I found out that I was pregnant, I immediately made two decisions:

  1. I will have a calm, peaceful birth.
  2. Baby will be Harry Potter for Halloween.

So, when she emerged into the world with Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives playing in the background, I moved all eggs to the “Harry Potter for Halloween” basket. Except where are the baby Harry Potter costumes? I can’t craft, so making one is out of the question. They don’t sell them online, so buying one is out of the question.

My daughter was born hearing Guy Fieri’s voice, but the universe can’t even help me find an infant Harry Potter costume. Is this what people mean when they say being a parent is the hardest job?

Boo.

I almost bought a pleather jacket for my baby today. I was alone at Target, which is never a good idea, and I held the tiny jacket in my hand. I thought to myself, “This is stupid. It’s 94 degrees outside, and my 7.5-month old does not need zipper pockets.”

So, I put the sweet BABY LEATHER JACKET back on the rack. For today. I will be back.

A note about hats.

I was so excited about sharing this little outfit that my uncle sent from Korea, but sometimes (all the time) bebe just wants to do her thing. Babies are so squirmy. Write this next part down — this is an important note-taking opportunity.

Things babies like about hats:

  • Wearing them as masks
  • Chewing them
  • Using them for storage
  • Driving them to the store for groceries
  • Crafting them into makeshift shoes
  • Weaving them together to form a raft

Things babies don’t like about hats:

  • Wearing them on their heads

Pretty much could not get her to sit still, because she’s decided that she no longer wants to wear a baby fedora. *I* want to wear a baby fedora. This kid does not know how good she has it.

Also, how ridiculous is her chunk foot in that sandal — using the singular here since, yes, she would only wear one sandal.
