Easter Dresses

Growing up, I had matching dresses with my mom, and I loved it! So, I decided to sew a maxi dress for me and a little dress for Claire using the same fabric (I'll put up a tutorial on how I sewed both the dresses later).

Don't you just love that sweet smile?

Am I a dork for wanting to be matchy-matchy with Claire? Yep. Do I care? Not at all :)

She's getting so big!
I couldn't decide which of these pictures to put up, so I posted all 4

Do you see the mini pocket? Pockets are super cute. MINI pockets? Even cuter.

Happy Easter!

Six Months Old!

Claire is half a year old! Time really is flying. Claire is learning new things every day and is growing so big! She just had her six month check-up. She's in the 88% for height, 62% for weight, and 49% for her head. 

We've been taking a picture every month. Here is her growth so far. Isn't she changing so quickly?!

Quick, strike a model pose

Sure, I'll sleep through the night *wink wink*

The ever popular duck face

Hooray! I'm six months old!

We love you Claire! We can't wait for the next six months!

Valentine's Day

Look at what a hunk of a husband I have.

 I'm really the luckiest girl. On Valentine's Day, I was woken up with breakfast in bed. Most girls get breakfast in bed on birthday, holidays, etc. I get breakfast in bed every week. Like I said, I'm lucky. Richie had school, so I had a play date while he was gone. Once he got home, Matt, Richie's brother, came over and babysat Claire so Richie could take me out to dinner.

Matt did a great job with Claire. She loved him! She blew out on Matt while we were gone, but he got her into a new outfit and got everything cleaned up. Thanks Matt!

Claire got her first flower from her Daddy. She obviously loved it.

Richie got Skyfall for Valentine's day. After we sent Claire to bed, Richie ran to the movie theater and grabbed some "real" popcorn (he's a popcorn snob). Then we snuggled on the couch and watched our movie.

Like I said, Richie is a popcorn snob. But that's okay because I'm a mug snob. That's right, I'm picky about my mugs. So, Richie hunted across Logan for the perfect mugs for me to drink my precious hot chocolate in. These mugs are HUGE. They also have a concave bottom so my hot chocolate mix doesn't get stuck in any cracks. I'm serious about my hot chocolate. 

Claire made Richie a Valentine while he was at school. He loved it. Claire loved having paint smeared on her little feet.

Valentine's Day was great!
