Fall Fashion For Baby Girl

As much as I love Fall fashion for me, baby Fall fashion right now is simply too cute to resist. From cute leggings to parkas, I may very well blow an entire pay cheque on the little kiddo. I just ordered these Carhartt Overalls for Hallie which will be PERFECT for playing in the yard over the next few months. Now that we live in Kamloops we will need to get used to chilly Okanagan weather. It was blue skies and sunshine yesterday morning but also zero degrees! I love the cool weather as long as you are dressed for it and it’s not raining. Won’t miss you, West Coast Drizzle!

So here are my top picks for little girl Fall Fashion. Seriously, who can resist a little knitted fox hat?
Fall Fashion for Baby

H&M Kids/Baby has some serious cuteness going on. Click here to see their entire Fall collection. My personal favourites included the parka (LOVE!!!!!!!) and the dresses. The pinafore style dresses are perfect for topping a onesie and leggings in the colder months. Babies get to layer too.

Shoes are always tricky with chubby baby feet and when the little ones are learning to walk, you want something with a bit of stability yet still a soft sole. These Joe Fresh Ballerina Flats are perfect for where Hallie is at right now in terms of her walking development. They are also cute to boot!

Zara Baby clothes are so fashionable, they put parts of my own wardrobe to shame. I love all of the knitted items they are carrying right now and the matching fox hat and mittens are irresistible. Seriously, do they come in my size? Not to mention some caramel leather Mary Janes..

Lastly, our Baby Gap favorite. I swear between myself and Grandma, Hallie has owned this sweater in every size so far since was born. If it has built-in ears on the hood, we have it.

I would love to hear your favourite Fall and Winter necessities too!


Home Renovations Continue

And we are still going over here with all the chaotic renovations. It’s been non-stop for the last couple weeks and exhaustion seems to be a common theme in this house. Grandma has been so helpful by coming over on certain days to entertain Hallie but since she can’t be here all the time, the days are full on. (more…)

Six Month Update

My little monkey is six months old! I can’t grasp how quickly time has flown by. We really have hit a bit of a sweet spot too. Six months is a lot of fun. Four and five were really rough waters. Teething, two colds and sleep protesting – naps and nighttime. (more…)


Easter Fun

Like I had mentioned before, we dropped the ball on Saint Paddy’s Day. We are however very ready for Easter! Today presented a lot of rain and an impromtu pyjama day filled with many Mini Eggs chocolates and some very cute smiles from a special little lady (it would not be a normal post without pictures of my baby girl now would it?). (more…)


Another Sunny Monday

It really does feel like Spring has officially arrived here in Port Coquitlam. We have had a beautiful stretch again of sunny, yet cool days. Haley and I have gotten out every day, going for long walks in the new Ergo Carrier. Yesterday we even headed out to the pier in New Westminster for some ice cream. Okay well maybe the ice cream was just for me. (more…)


The Day My Baby Stopped Sleeping

Okay maybe she has not stopped all together, but my child has definately decided sleep is for SUCKERS! The cool kids just aren’t doing it anymore. It all began last week. A normal (or as close to it as we get round here!) Tuesday night. Nothing out of the ordinary, with our regular bedtime and bath routine. Then at about 11pm, I heard the cry. (more…)


Long Weekend & Family Day Fun

Today is feeling like a Monday because of the long weekend we just had. Very sluggish and lazy and sad to see Henry go back to work. It’s always so nice having him here all weekend – not to mention all of the assistance with nighttime feedings! So with it being a long weekend, we had three whole days and boy did we get a lot done. For those of you who are not from B.C. Canada, we have Family Day here. Great idea if you ask me! For the most part, we got quite a few things done around the house. Hubby did a massive clean out of the garage and finally got all of our clutter organized. He sheepishly admitted that he in fact has more junk down there than I do – I am completely astonished by this but will not argue. Saturday night we decided to have some neighbours over for drinks and appetizers. There was quite a few laughs and on my part, quite a few glasses of wine. Sunday Hallie and I took off to my mum’s – she has a pool in her townhouse complex so were were going to have Baby’s First Swim! It was adorable. Not only did she have the CUTEST bathing suit (I have mentioned it many times already in other posts – have been dying to get it on her!), she also had the cutest darn expression on her face the entire time. It was the biggest bath tub she had ever seen. We didn’t get any smiles or giggles. I think she may have been a little overwhelmed. We also didn’t get any tears though so will take it as a win. I can’t wait to take her swimming again next weekend. I feel like we will have to keep at it to make sure she enjoys it. Based on her bath tub interactions at home, that kid is totally a water baby. Summer will be fun! On the holiday Monday, in the true meaning of Family Day, we went to visit some family. Henry’s cousin just had a brand new baby boy, also named Henry. His other cousin was visiting town as well with her baby boy who is seven months. Unfortunately I only have one picture from the meeting which was Hallie and her cousin Will, no pics of the brand new babe. Lets just say that was one room with A LOT of cuteness happening. Babies everywhere! I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend as much as we did. I guess it’s a countdown to Easter now!
