Kennedy 5 Months

FIVE months

Kennedy Ree is 5 months old and so much fun!  My favorite part of this stage is how quickly she is learning new skills and how much more she interacts with us.






I still have a few finishing touches to do in the nursery, but as soon as it’s finished I’ll have a full reveal post. It should be sooner than later!



Is it summer yet?

summerMy family is headed to the beach in June and I am ready to start packing!  It seems that everyone is on spring break right now which means that my facebook feed is full of people at the beach. I’m just slightly envious of them.

Instead of dwelling on my lack of ocean view and salt water breeze, I decided to gather a few of my favorite swimsuits of the season from my favorite stores in preparation for the summer.

swim baby boy I’m nervous about taking Kennedy to the beach because her skin is so fair.  I imagine by the time we go I’ll have bought some kind of sun shade tent, plenty of hats, and SPF 1 million sunblock.

I purchased her swimsuit from GAP last month on sale and with an extra discount and got it for $12. There’s something about royal blue on my blue-eyed girl that is so beautiful.  I still am in shock that we have a daughter with blue eyes–I know there’s a chance they could change, but I’m telling you, they’re REALLY blue.  There will be hundreds of pictures taken of my cutie in this precious bathing suit.  She’s already tried it on…twice.

The only thing left I need to get are some cute sandals and some sunglasses and we’re ready for the beach!

Just a quick progress post. Pardon the crappy phone pictures–it was Kennedy’s nap time and I was trying to get out of there as fast as possible. 

Gwen & Lily arrived a couple of days ago.


They are just taped up there in their plastic protective covering right now.  I need to find frames now to dress them up, but how adorable are they?!

The changing table area is quite a mess, but I’m making progress there too.  I plan on making some kind of thing to hold all of Kennedy’s bows, not that she can wear them yet, but she will someday!  It will be to the bottom-left of the mirror to help fill some of that dead space


Notice the other new art up there?

I found these two adorable vintage authentic Hummel prints at a local thrift shop a few months ago.  I didn’t know what I was going to do with them, but I couldn’t pass them up, especially for less than $3 each.

They came framed and I just spruced them up with some high gloss black paint.

I also picked up a few more room accessories at Target the other day.  Is there anything better than Target clearance?  Apparently I think that my checking account is bottomless so long as what I want is 50% off.


Okay, I wasn’t by myself, but Kennedy was sleeping most of the time and I did have an iced coffee in hand. I even kept to my budget and didn’t grab every single thing I wanted!  *you may applause me now*

But really, I got a few fun pieces for the room and I can taste the finish line!  So close to being finished!
