Sunday was one very special day. I was woken up to my little baby smiling down at me from my hubby's arms. We spent all day together just celebrating our bond and I can't imagine a more perfect day. Kai and I slept in after our morning feed and then Caleb made me a delicious breakfast. In the afternoon, we made our way over to the Chicago Botanic Garden and Caleb took all these beautiful photos of me and Kai to help me remember this incredible day. Even though Kai was tired, he kept up the picture taking charade for me like a champ! Just spending time with him was the greatest gift of the day.
I ordered this beautiful dress from the new Gal Meets Glam collection when it first launched and have been dying to wear it. It has finally gotten warm enough to be comfortable outside wearing a dress here in Chicago, so I took full advantage of that this weekend. I love the feminine look this dress has and how it buttons in the front. It makes nursing Kai super easy and when were all done I feel perfectly put back together. It's the perfect dress for a spring baby or bridal shower! Julia's line of May dresses launched today, so make sure you head over to her site to check out the new dresses!
I absolutely love dressing Kai up, too. I ordered this sweet little tangerine shirt for him a couple months ago and he's finally big enough to wear it now! I love putting Kai in bowties, as well. Caleb loves wearing bowties, so I think it's extra sweet when Kai wears them, too. My favorite place to get bowties from is this little shop called Little Mister. Even the name makes me swoon! This grey gingham one I got for Kai is my favorite so far. I know baby shoes are so unnecessary but I just can't help myself! The best baby shoes I've found are from Freshly Picked. They very rarely fall off and they fit Kai's little feet pretty well. He is currently in a size 1. Freshly Picked has this awesome monthly program called The Fringe that you can join! It costs $10 a month, but you get to use that $10 towards shoes. You also always get 20% off your order every time you shop and that is on top of any other sales they have going on. I know this is going to come in handy when Kai starts walking and we do have to buy him more shoes. Nice baby shoes that stay on their little feet can be expensive, especially for how fast they grow, so I'll take any kind of discount I can get! Plus if I let my monthly fee stack up over a few months I can get a pair of shoes without having to pay anything at checkout because your money on your account never expires! Oh the great things these shops come up with to help us parents out!
