Monday Must-Haves

Happy August, everyone!! We had a relaxing weekend after all the festivities of last week, it rained pretty much the whole time but we embraced it with some family dinners & trips to the mall.  We also managed a visit to the waterpark between the rain, it was extra-special since daddy got to come this time & Waverly was able to show off all of her new moves! 🙂

I thought it would be fun to share some of our favorites right now, we are desperately holding on to these last few days of summer & the fashions that come with it.  I definitely have my eye on some fall fashions for both us girls (& can’t wait for the holidays!), but I might just need some time to mourn not seeing Waverly’s little body in a bathing suit for a while.  I’m obsessed.

My little brother (with glamma’s help, I’m sure) got Waverly this suit for her birthday & the fringe is almost too much to handle.  It’s a little big which is perfect so she can rock it all next summer too, is it too early to start counting down to that now?!
Also, I can’t get over the fact that Waverly is obsessed with her “gasses” now, she puts them on & then looks up with her perfectly posed faced & says “picture”?  I love her way too much.

In other fashion news, I was looking for a present for my 10-year old niece’s birthday the other week & found this dress (similar here, on sale!) at Target.  The shopping addict in me couldn’t resist it for myself (to wear as a shirt!), I almost got one for Waverly too, but dug down deep to at least find some sort of restraint.  You know you might have a problem when you find something you need to buy everywhere you go, even in the kids department.

Waverly’s big girl room plans are under way, & I can’t wait to share some of the detail soon!  The colors are basically the same as her party, we got a bed & dresser from friends that we are going to paint a bright white to match the furniture we already have.  We got these sheets that I am in love with, I wish it would be acceptable to have them on all the beds in the house because they are that cute! 🙂
We are also still potty-training, but still in pull-ups when we are leaving the house.  Waverly was pretty much petrified of any potty other than ours at home (especially the Target one, which obviously we see often …), so we just got this portable potty that I’m hoping will help for when we are out!

Other things to love, these sweatpants for Waverly that will transition perfectly to fall, the entire Poppytalk line at Target (including these skewers) currently on sale, & these jeans.  I have been wanting a new pair of ripped jeans forever & these have such a great fit!

And I can’t decide if this is a must-have or not, since right now it’s incredibly cute but I’m thinking it could get old pretty quickly.  Waverly’s latest move is to put her fingers in her ears when she doesn’t want to hear what we are saying.  Also, her “no” has turned into a “not”, which (as much as I try not to), makes me laugh everytime.  We were playing in her pool the other day & I told her it was time to go inside, this is what I got.  With a big “not!”, that she thought was incredibly funny.  Such a two-year old.

Wishing you all the best week & the happiest early birthday my husband!!

    It rained all weekend here too, we're on our fourth gray day! Ugh. I'm hoping on to summer too, not ready to let it go yet. I love how Waverly's personality shows through all your photos!

  7. August 4, 2014 / 2:31 pm

    Ooh I can't wait to see how her big girl room turns out! I have been so slow putting Liam's together. I'm hoping that come fall, I'll be more inclined to do house projects.

    Loving that fringe swim suit with the glasses and headband so precious. I wish one of my 3 kids had red hair with a red headed husband I just knew one would of.

    the fingers in the ears, I die. So funny. I agree, I have a major Target obsession too, it's unhealthy, and my husband can't figure out why I like Target so much. I say what's not to like?

  10. August 4, 2014 / 2:49 pm

    I am seriously dying over her in her adorable bathing suit!

  11. August 4, 2014 / 2:57 pm

    Is this a post about a 2 year old or a 12 year old! The combination of that swim suit, the shades and that stance is just too adorable!! And the ear plugging is just too funny! Seriously, I feel like she grew up so fast!!

  12. August 4, 2014 / 3:06 pm

    Oh my gosh, that swimsuit. Fringe for a toddler?! Yes, please!!!

    Twinsie outfits are so cute! You guys melt my heart.

  13. August 4, 2014 / 3:18 pm….she is too much!! Just love her fingers in her ears!! AH! Steal my heart why don't ya! Plus, I love that top you have on! xoxo!

  14. August 4, 2014 / 3:25 pm

    I want that suit for lex SO BAD! Seriously, I've had my eye on it for months! Waverly rocks it so we'll that I might just be convinced it needs to be in lex's collection!

  15. August 4, 2014 / 4:01 pm

    What a smily happy sweet girl! You're so fortunate she let's you dress her up. Mine has started to choose what she wants… And it's not exactly my taste 🙂

  16. August 4, 2014 / 4:36 pm

    Too cute! My 3 year has started to say "seriously?" to everything that I tell her!

  17. August 4, 2014 / 5:44 pm

    I would love to hear more about the potty training, because we have begun, but Grace will NEVER say she has to go… So there are A LOT of accidents. Unless I just make her, which doesn't always seem fair…

    LOVE that bathing suit. She is such a fashionista:) I'm loving that you bought a kids top at Target – I do that sometimes, and thought I was the only one, lol! Sometimes, it def seems like the cutest stuff is made for the kids. And quick question: I've been wanting a pair of Gap boyfriend jeans for a while…Did you just go with your normal size? And they just fit a bit more relaxed, right?

    I am seriously craving fall and can't wait to see her big girl room!!

    ha the fingers in the ears! That is cute, but I am sure will get old pretty fast. Aria has learned how to roll her eyes, and it is cute but drives me up a wall at the same time. I blame her father. I looove the fringe. It is just too cute. I think Aria is showing more signs for the potty so we should get some sort of potty on the go contraption. Sounds gross.

    Could your baby possibly dress any cuter? No. She couldn't. Love it all!

  22. August 5, 2014 / 5:19 am

    OMG… that swimsuit!!! hahah – that NOT does look and sound cute, but I'm sure you'll get tired of it quickly. BTW, which book did you read for PT? Can't wait to see her big girl room reveal!
