Fridays during this month will (obviously) be holiday-related. We took advantage of yesterday by taking Waverly to see Santa. I’ve always heard stories or seen videos of kids being scared of Santa Claus. It seems that this year at least … Waverly Maye is unphased. Other than a strange look at the big man, she didn’t even blink an eye. Here are the pictures we got … Even though “elves” we’re clearly not in a festive mood and wouldn’t let us get close to document the moment. (They wanted us to spend the $50 on their photograph, of course.)
|Waverly’s Outfit is Rare Editions, Shoes are from Zulily, and Headband from Etsy.|
|Waverly in her Christmas PJs – Love that little butt. 🙂
PJs are from Walmart (Imagine that!!!) – thanks for the tip from Jessica @ Little Baby Garvin.
|It is hard to get a photo of Waverly’s face these days … as she is into EVERYTHING!
Got her this festive sippy cup from Target that she is loving, even though she definitely doesn’t know how to suck from the straw yet.
|Waverly’s onsie is from Kohls, Leggings from Carter’s, and headband is from Etsy.
The red blanket is Minky and also from Etsy.
|For an outing to the mall … we added a black tutu.
Picked it up on sale at Targe.
And even though it is not Christmas-related, I must take today’s post as an opportunity to record one of Waverly’s most recent (cutest ever) habits. It seems that with each passing week, she picks up new little mannerisms, facial expressions, and new favorite ways to spend time during her days. This week, she has been popping her head up frequently while breastfeeding … Just to lock eyes with me, and then goes right back at it. Her face seems to say … “So you are my mommy?!!!” I am slightly obsessed with it, and won’t mind if she continues with it for a while.
(A) Is a healthy baby girl.
Check, Waverly Maye was born July 26th. (See above)
(B) Is a healthy baby girl. In sequins.
Check, Waverly’s fifth outfit in her “Chic Countdown to Christmas” includes a fabulous pair of silver sequin boots. (See above)
We took a break from the classic red today, and decided to go with a festive yet classic combination of black, silver, & white. Waverly’s onsie is from Carter’s, her leggings are also from Carter’s, her headband is from Etsy, and her boots are from Zulily.
(And yes, Waverly’s obsession with her feet hit an all-time high today with the addition of sequins. I am shocked I was able to get one picture of her with her head up.)
(C) This is usually the point in which I would list my Christmas wants (you know … Forever 21 gift cards, a few pair of shoes, and maybe a pair of PINK sweatpants). But since I got everything I could ever hope for (and more) in Waverly Maye, I am instead going to list the holiday activities I would like to partake in this Christmas season, our first Christmas with our baby girl ……..
2. Bake Christmas cookies – specifically, oatmeal ones. Yum.
3. Watch a classic Christmas movie. While drinking hot chocolate.
4. Imprint Waverly’s tiny handprint onto a Christmas ornament. It’s pretty much mandatory.
5. Do a DIY Christmas ornament. (My mom’s idea)
5. Begin a canvas holiday tablecloth that we will add to each year. (My mom’s idea again)
6. Have the elves visit Waverly for each day the week before Christmas Eve. (Gosh, Mom, you really are creative!)
7. Go see the holiday lights at the Botanical Gardens. And then the ones at the beach.
8. Sing Waverly Chritmas songs as often as possible.
9. Read Waverly Christmas books as often as possible.
10. Shop. (Haha … like I needed a reminder on that one.).
