So I did it. I made it through my annual fashion field trip to New York City ... the one I had quite honestly been dreading for the last couple of months. As previously posted, the thought of leaving Waverly Maye for the first time was anything but pleasant. And as I expected, I missed her terribly.
In fact, on the second day of the trip, I texted my husband to let him know that I would never leave my baby girl again. Like ever in my entire life.
It was hard. Really hard. But some major baby girl retail therapy did help pass the time, and ease a little bit of the pain. With all the cuteness that the stores in NYC had to offer, I just couldn't resist bringing my girl back some additions to her ever-expanding wardrobe.

Other than fun with fashion, the other highlight of my trip was obviously the moment I reunited with my baby girl. I'm not sure there is anything better than seeing your favorite person in the world shrieking with excitement at the sight of you. And guess what that favorite person can now do? Crawl. That's right, friends. My baby girl is now mobile, and it officially happened while I was in NYC. She had been almost crawling for the past week, but took a first trip across the floor with her dad while I was gone. I was a little sad to miss it, but am convinced it did because she was trying to get to me. She had to find some way to find her momma.
I have spent the past two days since my return watching this girl crawl across the floor. And it definitely hasn't gotten old yet. Yet I think I need to spend my time to babyproofing the house.
