Hadley's confession this week: she's not a fan of the bumbo, as much as I'm trying to force her to be.
Why don't we start with a few Hadley confessions? Remember when I thought we were going to call her Haddie? We really don't. Like at all anymore haha. Hadley just fits her better! 'Hads' has been more of the nickname that has stuck. And I think she's actually starting to recognize her name when we say it! She'll turn her head and look at us... well, like 50% of the time.
I am starting to love dressing her up now that she's a little more active, and not just laying around sleeping. I love me some Baby Gap (like that onesie above - heart eyes) and I just placed my first Zara Kids order. I've also done a lot of Instagram stalking on small biz baby shops over the past few weeks and can't wait to pick up a few things in the next size up. I'll be sure to share my favorites soon! Honestly, I'll dress her in anything that does not have a million buttons. DESPISE the buttons.
One of my goals for the new year is to really start working on my photos. I want to document Hadley's childhood in the best possible way that I can, and that means properly learning how to use my camera. I downloaded the app 'Collect' which gently reminds you to take a picture each day and upload it to your calendar in the app - it's pretty cool.
Speaking of apps, my phone storage situation is awful. Mainly because I take like 50 pictures of the baby a day and can't bring myself to delete a single one. I was trying to make space on my phone the other night by getting rid of things I don't use, when I realized that I still had the 'Full Term' contraction tracker app that I downloaded that early morning that I went into labor - and I seriously cannot bring myself to delete it. I love that it has all of my contractions saved and how cool to be able to look at it still. ALSO (this is embarrassing, and gross) I still have all of the positive pregnancy tests that I took saved under my bathroom sink. What is wrong with me?!
Anyway, I think that was enough for one day. Now I'm off to try and put together a tablescape for this weekend - Hadley is getting baptized on Sunday and we're doing a big celebration meal here afterwards! I picked up these plaid candles today, how freaking cute are they?
Or maybe I should go make us some dinner...
