Striving to become a wonderful wife and mother...one sippy cup of wine at a time.

Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice!
I would have been thrilled to have had a little boy...in fact, I was CERTAIN it was a little boy until our gender reveal party! All we ever said we wanted was a healthy baby. But boyoh boy is having a girl too much fun!
I just had to share some of my latest gifts and purchases with everyone...especially with other moms and moms-to-be in case they "need" some of these items for their own little princesses. :)
My friend Heather gave me this BEAUTIFUL silk Baby Biscotti dress...yes, I'm finally starting to learn some baby brands! This dress is also from Vintage Baby. I think I'm going to use this dress for her 6 or 9 month old baby pictures.
I didn't even really know that newborns wear hats in the hospital but once I found out they did, I just couldn't have the standard issued hats the hospital gives out! :) The lady that makes these hats makes them from her home in North Carolina and actually was inspired to make them after the birth of her daughter, Harper. :) http://www.tweetlebugboutique.com/Home_Page.html
How much cuter would my newborn picture below had been with the hat above? :)
Speaking of hospital apparel, I bought Mary Harper's coming home from hospital dress today! It's a classic light pink Feltman Brothers dress.
AND FINALLY, this last purchase is going to be used in pictures we are going to schedule shortly after her arrival home. I've seen the most adorable pictures of little girls in these fabulous tutus. (see examples below in case you don't know what I'm talking about).
Yes, I know at some point I need to start thinking diapers, baby wipes and items of clothing I don't mind if she throws up or poops on. But I never claimed "practical" was my middle name. And something tells me Mary Harper will follow in her mommy's footsteps heels. And believe it or not, baby heels DO exist...and no, Mary Harper does not have a pair...yet. http://heelarious.com/index.php
I am living in the most wonderful town and married to the most wonderful man. We were married on New Year's Eve 2008 and just a few days after our 1 year anniversay, we found out we were expecting! Mary Harper was born in September of 2010 and our lives and hearts were forever changed! Then in December of 2011, our hearts became even larger as we welcomed our son, Anderson Joshua! Life is crazy with a one and two year old but we wouldn't have it any other way!
