Prettiest lace top, available in 4 colors.
The color options for this top are perfect for wearing now and into the fall season. If you have followed me for long, you probably know just how much I love lace. It always makes me feel pretty and feminine. This top could be dressed up for a date night or paired with a blazer for the workplace. I’m wearing a size xs.

Well, my baby girl is officially one year old, and I’m still in denial. I’ll be sharing pictures and details from her party soon, but for now, here is a little update on all things Cora!
Eating: She is drinking three 8 ounce bottles now (goat’s milk) and is eager to try any and all food she sees. There isn’t much the girl won’t eat. Lately, she is loving cheese, black beans, rice, green olives, yogurt, grapes, and chicken. She mostly just wants to eat what anyone else is eating and has learned from Maddox to go into the pantry, grab her own snack, and then bring it to me to open it for her.
Sleeping: Hands down, my best sleeper during the first year of life. Naps are twice a day even though she went through a random week of taking only one nap a day. Typically 1.5-2 hours per nap. She goes to bed between 8 and 8:30 and sleeps until 7:30/8:00 in the morning. Like her older siblings did when they were this age, she just lays quietly in her bed until someone comes to get her. Thank goodness for video monitors to know when she’s actually awake.
Stats: She weighs 21 pounds, 13 ounces and in wearing size 12 months clothes, size 5 shoes.
Milestones: She gives hugs! And let me tell you, they are the sweetest little, big hugs ever! The way she wraps those little arms around my neck and then gives a tight hug, often with sweet little pats on the back, will melt me. She has learned to play peek-a-boo and it is SO cute (see photos below). She has learned to use sign language for ‘more’. We haven’t used many signs or been very consistent with using sign language with her. But she does sign for ‘more’ intentionally and also tries to say the word.
A few random things about her: If we tell her ‘no’ about something, 99% of the time, she obeys right away (Savannah was just like that, too). She loves, loves, loves books. She is always bringing books over and sitting on my lap or at my feet so I will read to her. She loves her bunny more and more every day. She also got the cutest little stuffed animal kitty for her birthday and that is quickly going hand in hand with bunny. She gets so excited playing with our little maltese puppy, Anna. She loves going outside for any reason. She is becoming a little play-mate for Maddox and it is the sweetest thing to watch them together. He is so, so good with her.
Happy 1st birthday, Cora Rose. I love you so much! xoxo
