Annie & Sybelle: 10 Months!

Rompers: Wildforest Handmade // Bows: Little Luba

Baby Bear Shirt: The InkPAD // Blanket: Growing A Little Love

These girls are 2 months away from their first birthday! This last month has been a big one, and we've been very busy in this house - hence the update being 2 weeks late... better late than never I suppose! They are busy little bees, and the only way I was getting pictures this month was to hand them a handful of veggie straws... Ah life with twins.

These sweet girlies are 100% on the move, and speedy, too. They crawl everywhere they want to go, and are pulling themselves up onto about everything they can get their little hands on. Baby proofing the house started this month, and now I have to find new homes for all of my plants, since we've already had a few dirty incidents and plant murders, RIP little aloe vera. 

The girls are starting to really interact with each other, and it is my most favourite thing of motherhood yet. They crawl towards each other and laugh as they get closer and closer to each other, they share food, they giggle with each other, it's just the sweetest little relationship I've ever seen. They absolutely love to "dance" (wiggle their middle) to pop songs such as Despacito. I miss country music, but the girls just want to groove, so pop music it is!

Annie has 6 teeth now, and Belle has 5. They are still teeny tiny, and have really slimmed out and lost some of their baby chub now that they're on the move, so a lot of their smaller clothes still fit really well. They can still fit 6 month sleepers, and anything from 3-6 month up, which is awesome to get so much use out of our really cute items. 

These little babes have had a lot of fun firsts this month, and are having such a blast. It's getting easier and easier to get out and about with them, and they're having more fun than ever. This month has been an absolute blast! This is a pretty short update, but we've just been really enjoying life together and spending as much time outside and unplugged as we can. It's also been crazy busy over at the shop, so life has been very full! 

Thanks so much for reading, I hope you're having a beautiful day!

Annie & Sybelle: 9 Months

Annie & Sybelle: 9 Months

I thought I was being all productive, getting shit done, getting some decent (ish) photos of them until I looked over the photos the next day only to discover I switched the babies around. Annie is ALWAYS on the left in these photos (her name is on the left of the chalk board) and I for no reason at all, put Sybelle on the left. DUR. Then I thought about retaking these dang photos, which is SO much effort, holy moly, and decided that this was a funny story and this is exactly how life happens sometimes. So behold, their 9 month photos.

Mama's first night out!

Well, we did it! I was super anxious leading up to this day, but it ended up being such a fun night and I'm so so happy I got to have a little me time! It was my first night leaving the twinnies for a few hours to go do something fun since they were born. I went to go see my beautiful friend Heather in her wedding dress and then we all went bridesmaids dress shopping! It was so incredibly special to see her in her dress. She looked absolutely stunning and I just cannot wait for her big day. The dress is perfect and she will be the most gorgeous bride. We also found the bridesmaids dresses super easily, and it looks incredible on everyone! We purchased them right then and there. 

The twins were left with my wonderful mom and sister, so Kyle got the night off too. I kept texting him to see how much fun he was having with the house to himself and his response was, "I'm sad. I miss you girls." My heart. 

Coming home to the twins was so so special. Annie was in a complete deep sleep in my sisters arms, but as soon as she heard my voice her eyes were wide open. They are just so stinkin sweet and though they were super fussy for their babysitters, I know my mom and sister loved having them all to themselves for a few hours. 

On to the outfit - I felt like such a cool mom in this outfit, I'm not gonna lie! These shoes are to die for, and they're actually incredibly comfortable! And that's coming from a girl who lives in Birkenstocks, so you know how much I value comfort ;) The shoes totally made the outfit look more fancy than it felt! The leggings are from Victoria's Secret (and yes I know, "leggings aren't pants" but I just honestly have to disagree. I live in these things.) This shirt is perfect for my post partum body. I'm back at my pre-baby weight but have a light case of diastasis recti so my belly can tend to look a wee bit preggo still, so this cut is perfect for me for right now! And gosh I have no idea where or when I got this cardigan but it's always been a staple in my wardrobe and it's the perfect length to pair with pretty much everything! 

And this hair. This is my new go to mom hair. Because it looks like I styled it, right!? I braided my hair the night before in one big braid (to keep it out of my babies' grabby little hands) and then the next day just threw the top half of my hair into a tiny little mom bun and voila! Oh and dry shampoo. Lots of it. 

I had such a fun night and it just really reminded me how much I love getting ready and putting together outfits. I'm hoping to keep up doing little posts like these, so keep your eyes peeled!

Take good care, lovelies!
