Halloween-Inspired Fashions

Happy halfway through the week!  First, the biggest thank you for all your feedback on Avalon's current sleep situation.  I read all of your comments & suggestions, used them, and ... guess who took TWO hour & a half naps in her crib yesterday?! :) I actually had a sleep sack from when Waverly was younger (it was sitting in the drawer in Avalon's room!), in the fog of my sleep deprivation, I never even thought to use it.  It really made such a difference, Avalon seemed so much cozier yet not too cozy like she had been in the rock-n-play.  I have been a parent long enough to know that this definitely doesn't mean we won't ever have nap issues again, but baby steps.  We are headed in the right direction!

And in other news, some fun fashions!!  I thought I would celebrate Halloween week with a few styles inspired by the holiday, looks that could work this week but also could take you (or your little ones!) into the months to come.

White Shirt - Black Flats - Black Sunglasses - Sleeveless Top - Mustard Sweater - Trapper Hat - Black Flats - Black & White Checkered Dress - Black Dress
I know that the toddler sweater is not exactly orange, but it just screams fall to me.  I love it so much & want three, one for me and both the girls, if only it came in all our sizes!

Also, a few pictures from our week so far.  We are getting so excited for the holiday, it's been too much fun celebrating with two little ladies this year, especially since Waverly understands so much now!  We have her first holiday party at school tomorrow, and she is beyond excited (like counting down the minutes) until Avalon & I get to come hang out with her there.  I'm so thankful it fell on a day that I didn't have to work. :)

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday week!

    Oh my - that black and white dress is magical.
    And woohoo for holiday parties! Marcus' school has a few bounce houses at their party today, and I know his little mind is going to be blown, and hopefully we'll get the ever elusive dual nap to happen.
    Have so much fun at the party today!!

  17. So stinking adorable! Yay for a napping baby and a happy mama! Man, it's amazing how just a little bit of extra sleep can make such a huge difference in the lives of everyone in the family! I remember this time last year with Mim and how hard it all was. She was at the peak of her no napping, evening fussiness, scream/cry period. Halloween was AWFUL last year...and now everything is better. It goes by so slowly while you're in it and then all of a sudden it was a year ago! Geez.
