New York City News

So I did it. I made it through my annual fashion field trip to New York City … the one I had quite honestly been dreading for the last couple of months.  As previously posted, the thought of leaving Waverly Maye for the first time was anything but pleasant.  And as I expected, I missed her terribly. 
In fact, on the second day of the trip, I texted my husband to let him know that I would never leave my baby girl again. Like ever in my entire life.
It was hard.  Really hard.  But some major baby girl retail therapy did help pass the time, and ease a little bit of the pain.  With all the cuteness that the stores in NYC had to offer, I just couldn’t resist bringing my girl back some additions to her ever-expanding wardrobe.
Waverly in one of her gifts (Baby Gap Blazer) & surrounded by the rest of them.  At her young age of 8 months old, I’m not sure that she appreciated the fashion, but definitely had some fun playing with the purchases.

Other than fun with fashion, the other highlight of my trip was obviously the moment I reunited with my baby girl.  I’m not sure there is anything better than seeing your favorite person in the world shrieking with excitement at the sight of you.  And guess what that favorite person can now do?  Crawl.  That’s right, friends.  My baby girl is now mobile, and it officially happened while I was in NYC.  She had been almost crawling for the past week, but took a first trip across the floor with her dad while I was gone.  I was a little sad to miss it, but am convinced it did because she was trying to get to me.  She had to find some way to find her momma.

 I have spent the past two days since my return watching this girl crawl across the floor.  And it definitely hasn’t gotten old yet.  Yet I think I need to spend my time to babyproofing the house.

    That is the cutest picture of her surrounded by all her new clothes! I can not believe she can crawl now, and while you were gone! That was so sweet that she wanted to get to you!

    It's so hard to leave baby everytime. But we gotta do it sometimes! I try to leave late and come back early so I won't feel like I missed to many daytime hours!

    I can't wait to see the fabulous finds for Waverly! Love NYC shopping!

    Yay Waverly! It's so hard to leave our babies, but I'm glad you're back with her now! And those clothes are just too cute!

      Thank you! Definitely hard but so fun getting back!

    Omgosh so precious!! I'm glad you are taking her crawling while you were gone in stride. My son is 5 1/2 months and I doubt he will crawl a day before 9 months. lol

    First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I've had a difficult
    time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be
    lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!

    aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.

    Hello! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could
    get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a
    40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to share it with someone!
