Easter Dressing

So um... Easter is next weekend! Yeah, talk about creeping up.

Seeing as I haven't really bought new clothes in over a year (being pregnant and then in the process of just fitting in clothes), I feel a new dress is needed. Between wedding events and the upcoming warm months, I have several dresses in my view.

Life Lately

This month began our craziness until early July. We have one weekend (this upcoming) with absolutely no plans. As much as I love being on the go, I love the slow pace weekends bring especially now with a little one. The good thing is all the weddings, trips and parties bring lots of friend and family time.

- Mary Tilman has been eating solids for about a month and pretty much gobbling up everything. We are now mixing fruits and veggies which have been a hit.
- We brought out the bonnet on a recent sunny day and I am smitten with this classic Southern look.
- Santa brought a baby swing so we thought to break it out. She treats it as a moving recliner while we stand and push ... ah the life of a baby
- MT recently had 6 month pictures and Aaron snagged a few on his phone. I can't wait to see the final images.

Anthro {sister} love

Maybe I have been living under a rock but I somehow just stumbled upon Terrain... be still my Anthropologie-loving heart. This precious store is a sister company of Anthro and contains all beautiful things home.

Ceramic Dying Eggs - I kinda love these in just plain white
Aged Iron Urn - I love this with a pretty fern
Copper Candle - this one is almost too pretty to burn, almost
 Reindeer Moss Wreath - This wreath is great for spring and even re-purposing for the holiday season
 Alabaster Bowl - This is a great classic bowl for entertaining or floral arrangements
 Cocktail Herbs - This is a precious addition to a barware gift

Baptism Brunch

Little Miss Mary Tilman was baptized a few weeks ago and it was a beautiful day... a little chilly but beautiful. After going back and forth, we decided to host a brunch at our house for family and a few close family friends.

My event planner self took full advantage of creating this exactly how I wanted it to be. I wanted it to be sophisticated but also keeping budget in mind. Sadly, with all the hustle and bustle, I forgot to take pictures. Here are a few images I snapped at the end.

Mary Tilman: 6 Month Update

How has it been 6 months? Each month continues to become my favorite although it makes me sad how big you are getting!

Weight: I am guessing a 16 pounder (we will find out at your doctor's appt. in 2 weeks)

Height: Long as your clothes are indicating to use (I commented this morning that I need to buy you some more in-between season clothes until you can wear all your precious spring/summer outfits)

Sleep: Bless you child and your great sleeping habits. It could be thanks to me being the crazy schedule mom or just because you are awesome. Either way, I love it. The best is that you can talk yourself to sleep and are perfectly content to carry on some stellar conversations in the morning as your dad and I drag ourselves out of bed.

Clothes/Diapers: 6 month clothes but moving rapidly to 9 months; We are finishing up the end of our size 2 diaper stash and then moving you up to size 3

Diet: Still solely milk but with the addition of solids! You have been amazing eater as we have tried carrots, green beans and sweet potatoes. You are not a lover of the green beans but I don't blame you (they look gross). We were lucky enough to be gifted a Beaba food cooker and it is amazing! You only mess up one dish and can truly leave it and forget it.

Favorite Gear: Exersaucer (or this may be my favorite to keep you contained for 2 minutes), Stacking toys, books (although you prefer to eat rather than read them)

Milestones/Firsts: You learned to sit the day after your 5 month birthday and have been sitting ever since. I loved seeing you so happy but it makes me sad how big you are getting. You are also dubbed "Chatty Cathy" as you seem to be having full-on baby talk conversations. Sadly, you also got your first fever and it was terrifying! We were those parents calling the doctor on call only to be told it was just teething.

Likes: Your bulldogs, sitting up, airplane, being outside, water (bath time is a fav. still), your thumb

Dislikes: Changing into your pajamas, extended car rides (we now have to make sure you have a full tummy and a little tired after last weekend's horrific ride back to Alabama).
