to demonstrate how completely shallow and ridiculous i can be some times, i give you this:

rebecca minkoff, knocked up baby bag in leaf. $695. sold out.

i am obsessed. literally. i spied it in the newest Cookie magazine and i am head over heels smitten with it. can i afford this? absolutely not. but that doesn’t mean i can’t dream. i adore kelly green and i adore functional mommy bags that don’t scream “inside this bag are two wet diapers, a crusty bib and the snickers wrapper from my lunch.”

ugh. why do i torture myself?

babymae couture.

Jul 30, 2009

another of claire’s most fabulous birthday presents was from her aunt alex and uncle ryan. a super cute dress from babymae couture. it’s the talented handiwork of their close friend- danielle axtell. danielle’s line is going to be featured in a few baby boutiques soon and is also available on etsy. congrats danielle! i am in love with the colors, the print and the cute flowy shape! it is even more adorable in person. claire was being my little model one afternoon and i snapped these shots of her being gorgeous as always.

girly girl.

Oct 23, 2008

pretty bowstoday a package arrived for claire, darling little flower bows and headbands to show off her long brown locks. i ordered them from an etsy shop, prettybabybowtique. trust me, don’t drop $25+ at an overpriced specialty baby store for these when you can easily order from etsy at less than half the cost. i adore them!
as for updates, we spent a good 4 hours at the dreaded hospital today for claire’s kidney ultrasound and urologist appointment. claire was such a good girl the entire time (she saves the screaming fits for home!) the doctor said from glancing at the films that her kidney tissue looks like it is growing and the blockages do not look any worse. praise God for a little speck of positive news! so it’s wait and see with what they will do about the blockages as she gets older. we’re praying that she simply outgrows them. oh and she weighed about 10 and a half pounds! wow. she is a superchunk already. time to ask the pediatrician about taking her off the high calorie premie formula.
thanks for all your prayers and kind words from my last post. it means so much to me to have such encouragment from friends, family and even people i’ve never met. this process has been a rollercoaster of emotions but your comments, emails, phone calls and visits give me strength to keep going and fight through this. i can’t express how i feel except to say i love you all so much.
