Happy Weekend!

Happy Halloween weekend everyone! Today is the annual Halloween parade at Sophie’s daycare – and if you haven’t ever seen dozens of babies and toddlers in full costume all in the same place, well, it’s pretty much the cutest thing ever. This year, Sophie will be rocking a homemade costume of sorts: she’ll be a snail, which is just about the extent of my limits with a newborn at home. We don’t get many trick-or-treaters on our street, so we’ll be hanging out with friends and their adorable daughter tonight to help them pass out candy. Best of both worlds! But in the meantime…

Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! I’m going to be honest – we’ve had a rough week over here. Sophie is going through some typical two year old tantrums (we’ve started referring to her as our “twonager” since it’s a nice little preview of what she’ll be like as a teenager), and when you combine that with a needy newborn you get two very tired parents. I know this is just a phase, but I feel like I could sleep for about a week straight if given the opportunity! For now I’ll just settle for (hopefully) a few extra minutes this weekend, but in the meantime…

Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! Today little Alice turns one month old! With Sophie, the newborn stage felt like an eternity – but we wondered if things would be different the second time around since we (now) know how fleeting these early days really are. I’m still not the biggest fan of the newborn stage (I’m much happier when babies start smiling – usually around 8 weeks), but it does feel like these first (hard) few weeks have just flown by! We’ll be celebrating Alice’s first month birthday with take out and doughnuts tonight – but in the meantime…

Introducing…

Hello again! Introducing our newest addition: Alice Evelyn! We couldn’t be more in love. I’ll do a longer post about her arrival when I have a bit more time to sit down and write – so maybe a year from now? Kidding! – but I thankfully avoided a repeat of my postpartum experience with Sophie, so I’ve been able to spend the last few weeks enjoying this sweet and tiny baby. Not that everything has been sugar and rainbows so far – we’re definitely still adjusting to being a family of four and having a newborn in the house again. But it’s all worth it. Two girls! I love it.

I’m so excited to dive back into my lovely world of beautiful paper and will be easing myself back into my routine over the next couple of weeks. I’ve got a ton of wedding invitations to share – not to mention 2015 calendars coming at you real soon! But first a huge thanks to the wonderful guest bloggers who helped out while I was away – from Hello!Lucky to Audrey, Erin, Lisa, and all the other amazingly talented mamas – and my wonderful team of contributors! Thank you all a million times over!

Since I haven’t been able to do my normal Friday posts for a few weeks, I thought I’d start off with a few favorite links from the last month:

I’ll be back with more soon!

Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! We’re looking forward to a low-key celebration of Sophie’s 2nd birthday this weekend. We decided not to do a party this year, since little brother or sister could arrive at any moment (which makes party planning a bit difficult!) – and even though Sophie is still pretty clueless when it comes to the concept of a birthday party, we plan to do something small at home. There will definitely be cake involved! But in the meantime…
