When everyone told me the infamous line, “They grow up so fast”, I believed them! But NEVER thought it would happen this fast! I came across his little onsie he wore in the hospital and couldn’t believe he was that tiny only a few months ago! 😦 My big boy.
We’re heading out the door to go clothes shopping for “Mommy”. 😐 Not very excited. (It always seems exciting and fun when you think about it, but once you’re in the dressing room with one hook full of 15 things that look TERRIBLE, and another empty “thumbs up” hook, you realize this stinks!) Well, I’ve lost an amazing TWENTY FOUR POUNDS since February. Everyone “claimed” you couldn’t even TELL I was at 160 then, but I definately could! I gained a whopping 50 total lbs from being preggo, and thankfully I’m only 7 pounds away from my original pre-preggo weight! So, with Adam and I spending a week in NYC (leaving in SEVEN DAYS – omg.), I knew I’ve put off clothes shopping long enough. Today’s the day.
And just incase you forgot how tiny “da boy” was, here’s a reminder. (@ 18 days)
And as a bonus, I grabbed the “real” camera (instead of the iphone) last night for a few minutes to get some precious pics of “the boy” playing in his Bumbo. He loves that thing! And I love it too – he’ll be sitting up in no time. 🙂
Playing with a new toy him and Mommy picked out the other day. 🙂
Curious about the “clicking” sound of the shutter. So cute.
That’s my boy.
And lastly, playing with his little piggie toy – it’s a constant goal of his to get it to the back of his mouth. Thankfully, he has lost every time (so far)!
And lastly – do not EVER say “my living room won’t look like THAT when I have kids!” Believe me. You will be eating your words when your time comes. lol (And it’s actually pretty simple to pick up – swing and jumpy thing collapse and slide under beds and we just put all his toys in his Bumbo and cap it with the tray. Slide that sucker right under the coffee table and VOILA! You can see the rug again!)
Brooke & AP were AMAZING! We had so much fun, despite my constant sniffles. 😉 Thank you, guys, for being so great and understanding with your sick little photographer that day. 🙂
We met at a gorgeous ranch and really made the most of the beautiful weather. The wind was a LITTLE on the STRONG side that afternoon, but the day still made for great images.
We’re out the door for a little family portrait!

Racheal had the *cute* idea to spend their engagement session having a picnic – something her & Victor have always done while dating! I loved the idea. Here’s what we created…
Check out their awesome picnic “basket”!
She brought Oreo’s with them to share. SO cute! Great idea, chick! 😉
Good job, Victor! 🙂
Stay tuned for Racheal’s GORGEOUS bridals – if she’ll let me blog ’em! 😉 (I haven’t asked yet. lol )

There is a little boutique here in Sulphur that I LIVE at for Parker’s clothes, toys, our new JOGGER stroller, etc, etc. It’s a cute little children’s store and consignment shop on MaplewoodDrive that just had a complete face lift, compliments of it’s new owners, Christine & Beverle Machulski!
Being a young mom herself, Christineis having so much FUN bringing in PRECIOUS new bows, shoes, outfits, and more! My absolute FAVORITE part of the boutique: HER CONSIGNMENT CLOTHES! omg. I used to think of consignment as something I never really thought twice about purchasing, until two things occured: 1.) I had a baby and realized how friggin’ fast they grow and my $50 outfit didn’t last more than one wear(like literally – one time, PBJ grew ONE INCH in a week!) and 2.) when I found Christine’s consignment clothes – they’re in mint condition – perfect. Like, half still have tags on them. And the type of outfits they are – outfits that I just priced elsewhere brand new for $35 – with a NINE DOLLAR TAG on them. Todaymy mom came home with a Tommy Hilfiger one piece for $8.99. 😀
Since we’ve shopped at the B.C., Parker doesn’t even really wear a lot of t-shirt outfits from Wal-Mart or Target. We have tons of little coordinated shirts & overall outfits all by kissy kissy and other super soft super sweet and so SO cute one pieces. It’s just awesome to be able to buy things like that for the same price as a regular new cotton onsie. She also has on consignment little baby and toddler toys, swings, bouncies, jogger strollers, etc; really whatever her customers bring in that is up to her (very clean/”new” feel standards). The comic part of this?! That I’m kind of regretting to share my secret spot! lol 😉
So, if you’re interested in consigning – give her a call! 337-626-6020 Or stop by @ 2304 A Maplewood Drive here in Sulphur. And if you just want to shop, go by and say “hi” (and tell ’em you saw her little girl on Lindsey’s blog)!
So ANYWAY, here are some of the images Christine had me create to promote the “Cottage”. (This is part 1 of 2.) Our model: her GORGEOUS four year old, Morgan…
the cutest little cotton summer outfits…
headbands & tutus
(a consignment peice) a classic little girl’s dress (I can’t think of the name of these.. someone leave a comment if you know!) My mom dressed me in these dresses all the time…
one of my favorites – they carry a line of Pillowcase Dresses, with the matching accessories.
Stay tuned for part 2 – coming up in May!
