Stripes & Summer Scenes

Here we are, another weekend down & almost halfway through August!  My two-year old (plus two weeks) is totally in rare form these days, making me crack up one minute & want to cry the next. 😉  Isn’t is amazing how fast their little moods can change?!
On the positive side, Waverly Maye’s love of fashion seems to be growing by the day & my mama heart couldn’t be more full about it all.  Out of no where, she has to have a bag every.single.time we leave the house & inside, she likes to pack all of the essentials (bottles, diapers, pacis …) for whatever babydoll we are bringing along with us that day.  Plus, she makes sure to pack “gasses”, either her own or mine will work.

Much like floral, stripes are one of my absolute favorite prints for all ages & seasons of the year.  They really are incredibly versatile, I love adding a fun twist with leopard or an accessory (or both).  This anchor dress was a great find from H&M last spring ($4.95!), but I also love this shirt version for girls & these striped sweatpants for boys, both which would be great for fall.  And ladies, this striped tee from Zara is quite possibly the best deal ever, how perfect would this be all year long?!  It also comes in other prints!

We also recently paired stripes with Waverly’s bloomers & headband from SugarPlum Lane, TOO much cuteness.  Also an example of my child’s passion for fashion, we now wear hello kitty bandaids even if we don’t have the need for them. 😉

 We had family & friends over for dinner to celebrate my husband turning 32 over the weekend & of course, Waverly had the best time with lots of her favorites to entertain her.  She is too funny about her daddy lately, she calls him “Joe” permanently now, something that makes us laugh every time.  I was convinced she didn’t know my name was Ashley, until this week when she refused to nap & was repeating “mommy” from her crib.  When she realized I wasn’t giving in, she changed to “Ashley” to let me know she meant business.  Two days in a row.  It’s really crazy how much these little ones take in that we don’t even realize!

And lastly, a few pictures from our summer weekend!  My husband went fishing for the day so my brother & I took Waverly to the farmers market, one of our favorite summertime visits.

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

    She is seriously so well dressed! Love the bloomers and the striped shirt! She's just getting cuter by the day, I mean the bag?! I can't even… Have you seen Scarlett's (super tacky) mini mouse purse that she likes to carry everywhere?! LOL

      Haha, no – I am just now starting to see her want to help me pick out her outfits. So much fun but also a little scary … 😉

    Too funny that she calls her daddy Joe and called you Ashley when Mama didn't work. Oh, she cracks me up and I don't even live with her! And I LOVE that picture of her peeking into the window, absolutely adorable!! Everything about it.

    I love all things stripes and gingham so you nailed it in this post for me! 😉 and seriously… Charli now calls us mom and dad and Steven can't stand it! Haha! "Come on dad"! She even repeated him one night at dinner when he said "I love you traci"… Charli says "yeah, I love you too traci"! Hahahahaha

    The stripes and polka dot bloomers? Can't even handle it. Dead right now.
    Has Waverly started speaking in 3rd person? That's all we are hearing over here these days.

    So cute! I am so in love with floral now that Ellie is a little older. I am dreaming of re-doing her bedroom but need a job first…

    Shut up!! I think I'll die the first time I hear Mia call me by name… she has finally mastered "mama" so hopefully it takes her years to master "Courtney" 😉
    Waverly is the cutest little diva, EVER! I love that she packs a bag everywhere!!

    Ha, love that she uses "Ashley" when she means business! Liam frequently uses Conor's real name, but never mine! Thank goodness. I am still getting used to him saying mommy instead of mama right now!
