Five on Friday

I am super excited to be joining up with some lovely ladies for my first FIVE ON FRIDAY  ... almost as excited as I am that it actually is Friday, my favorite day of the week. :)
I have been loving reading all the fun Friday posts!  Here are five of my own current favorites, although obviously, I could include WAY more than that.
 
One
Waverly Maye & her ONE-year old self.!  It has been three weeks since that milestone birthday, and I am convinced that these have been the best days of her life so far!  Waverly is now walking so fast that it's pretty much a run & learning new words by the day.  Her personality, drama & all, is out full force.  I'm pretty much obsessed with everything about this age & this little person that she is becoming before my eyes.
 

More to come in her official THIRTEEN month post on Monday!

TWO. 
Speaking of this one-year old's birthday ... would it be complete without official photos to commemorate the occasion?!  Not in our world.  Even though the girl already has more pictures of her documented than many do in their entire life, I had to seize the opportunity.  We got a sneak peek this week and are so excited!


 A cute baby, tee-pee AND a feather headband?  I'm not sure it gets much better than that. 
Thank you, Nicole, we can't wait to see the rest!

Three.
It has now been almost three months since we closed on our house & many of the big projects are completed, so now it's time to get decorating.  So exciting, I know, but also a little overwhelming.  I can style an outfit with my eyes closed, but for some reason, styling my home is way harder.  And not to mention, a little more expensive.  Can Forever 21 can a home goods line?!  In the meantime, I did get this rug for our living room for $60 and am pretty damn proud of myself for this find.

Four.
Boots for Babies. Fall fashion just happens to be my favorite, mainly because of the return of boots after summer.  And now that Waverly is officially a walker, the possibilities for footwear are even greater.  I can't wait to see her little feet stomping around in these minnetonkas in the upcoming months.

 Five.
 Snuggles & cuddles from my baby girl.  Just as fast as Waverly has become even more mobile, lucky for me, she is showing the sweetest affectionate side. I told my husband that at several different occasions this week, I have closed my eyes to take in the moment because I never wanted to forget it.  She has learned to hug and lean her head into my shoulder AND has been giving kisses non-stop.  When we were on our morning run the other day, she grabbed my hand and wouldn't let go.  We literally held hands over the stroller for ten minutes.  Motherhood, I tell you ... BEST thing ever.


Enjoy your weekend, ladies! 
XOXO
