Mother nature clearly reads my blog (I’m honored, really!), since within 24 hours of my winter weather rant last week, she decided to step in with rising temperatures & the bluest of skies!! After being stuck inside all winter long, we were more than ready for some fresh air. Really, Waverly Maye made it very clear as she sat at the door repeating “ooouut-siiiiiide” over, over & over again. My outdoor girl, I love her so.
We are so lucky to have the best park two streets from our house, complete with a jungle gym, swings, slides & a lake which always has lots of ducks for us to feed. Pretty much anytime the weather is over 60 degrees, we make our way there & stay as long as possible. It’s a no-brainer for us, Waverly LOVES, loves to explore & has a serious obsession with gum-balls, rocks & leaves. They will keep her entertained all afternoon really so between that & the jungle gym, it’s her own personal paradise.
For me, I get the opportunity for some actual physical activity on the short run there (before I had Waverly I worked out every single day & she is going on nineteen months now … not sure I could tell you the last time I hit the gym). So I appreciate that & obviously love to watch her in her element, she really is beyond happy there & that makes me happy.
With the cold, the last week has really been our first time back in a while & Waverly is totally in rare form. Apparently since she is officially a year & a half now, she no longer needs any assistance climbing up the jungle gym or sliding down the slide. In fact, she refuses it & I’m pretty sure by next week she will be hanging from the bars while doing pull-ups all on her own. All while I am having a major panic attack & all the other moms are looking at my super active child while theirs sit in the swing quietly. 😉
And the cutest, she missed the duckies so much that she offered them her yogurt pouch & wanted to feed them her entire pb&j. You know you have done your job as a mom when your little lady is willing to share her snack pouch, right?!! I was so proud!
Other than our obsession with spending lots of time in the outdoors, we obviously love spring styles, too!! I cannot wait to dress Waverly in tons of dresses, skirts & gladiator sandals (my fave!) … yet we clearly have some time to kill before we officially make it there. In the meantime, we are getting spring ready with bright colors & floral prints, just used on styles that still keep my girl warm. This Gap jacket (no longer available in pink, here in blue
) is totally perfect for that, here are some other looks that will help beat the winter blues!!
I clearly have an obsession with pink, stripes & chambray. All scream spring for me yet still are classic & versatile enough to layer when it’s still cold out. And all are from Gap & Old Navy, two of our absolute favorite places to shop, both for mama & mini!
So for now, we will take in every bit of the warm weather while we can. It looks like the rest of the week is back in the 40s so you will find us extra layered & dreaming of spring. 🙂 Warm weather wishes your way, hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!
