we are the future
Little mans ‘we are the future’ shirt from Shop Jumping Jack got me thinking about raising a little human. Honestly its terrifying at times. I think about how much my parents influenced me growing up and the weight of what it means to be a parents weighs heavy on me. It’s not my words that he will truly remember, it is my actions. In the everyday. In how I spend my time with him, in how I respect and love his father, in how I accept myself. It is those everyday choices and the words I speak that will shape his belief system and outlook on what is possible in life.
I want him to believe that anything is possible. That when you work hard enough good things do happen. I want him to know that when bad things happen, because they will and they do its not because of something he did wrong. Life is not out to punish you. I want to teach him how to love others well. To respect, to pour into, to raise up and call out the good in those around him. My desire for him is for him to know his worth in this world. To know there truly is no one like him, that he has something to offer the world that it so desperately needs. That conforming helps no one, but standing up and staying true to himself helps everyone.
My hope and prayer is that my daily choices add up to something beautiful and impactful in a positive way. I want to be remembered for spending quality time with him, always reminding him of his worth, and never hesitating to give him one more hug or kiss. Okay cue all the tears.
Sidenote, How do some people look so graceful and beautiful when smiling and laughing with their kid? Me, yeah not so much. haha. But he loves me for it. So who am I to judge myself.
You guys I cannot even stand how he looks at me and reaches for me. I’m soaking up every last moment of it because I know when the toddler years come rolling around daddy is going to be his hero.

We’re finally getting getting some consistent warm weather here in the midwest so its time for spring clothing. When I was at francescas the other day I saw this floral top and knew I had to try it on. Best part is its under $35.
Paired with this cross body saddle bag and its the perfect spring outfit. When I opened it up my mind was blown you guys. It has a built in phone charger. Ummmm yes please. Its currently out of stock online, so check in store to see if your store has it. I will update with link when it goes back in stock.
My cold shoulder floral top is Small. (Shoes are from Target.)
I love rompers. I love wearing them, and I love them on babies.
For babies I actually prefer rompers without snaps or buttons on the legs. Have you ever tried snapping 10+ snaps on a wiggly little baby? Doesn’t work all that well. This romper is stretchy so its super easy to slip on and off . This henry + claire romper even has a hood you guys!
My romper is Forever 21. I actually got it a couple years back (sorry!) I know it always seems like the favorite clothes are the ones no longer available.
Make sure and check out HENRY + CLAIRE . Let them know I sent you too!

Somehow this little guy is turning into a toddler one day at a time.
My heart just bursts watching him learn new sounds and abilities daily. I love seeing his personality come through more and more everyday. Theres something about this age. Once they hit 8.5-9 months I swear they just start growing leaps and bounds.
He still lovessss lights (see picture below) haha. Ceiling fans and light streaming in has always been his favorite.
He is always wanting to be on the move or in mamas arms. I wouldn’t want it any other way. 6-10 months of age so far is my favorite. What about you? Whats your favorite?
