9 Months Old

My baby is nine months old!  He is a babbling, crawling, eating, and sleeping machine.  His favorite things to babble are dada and baba.  No mama yet!  He has quite the little personality.  He dislikes when we take anything away from him which is always something that he shouldn't have been playing with in the first place.  To change his clothes and diapers should really be an Olympic sport.  Whoa.  It's a two person job because he is so fidgety and wants to roll and take off.  When he was in the NICU, a nurse told me that he had a spunky personality and boy is he really living up to that!  I absolutely love that he recognizes us and will scream/babble for us to come towards him.  It's still really hard to leave him during the day and especially now that he's on the move but I know this is for the best right now.   I say this all the time, but this is my favorite month yet!

Two Year Blogiversary

Two years ago today I started Dainty & Decadent.  This has been my place to come and vent or have fun after long days at the office.  I truly love blogging.  Even though I've slacked on the posting lately, I'm excited to get more into a consistent routine.  I decided to go back through my archives and...yikes...there are some baaaaad posts!  What was I thinking?!  I love that my pregnant belly was well documented and made me teary looking through those posts.  But the best part of blogging is by far getting to know readers and connecting with bloggers I've been reading years before I started my blog.  I feel like I know some of you even if we've never met.  I still consider you to be my friends, blog friends!  Two years have gone by so quickly!

Easter 2014

Easter 2014 was an event!  I finally got to put on this little outfit my cousin gifted Lucas when he was born.  Two of my sisters came into town for the weekend and while we were expecting one, my other sister surprised us!  She said that there was a package outside for Lucas but when my husband opened the door, she was standing outside.  It was great to see both of my sisters and the last time they saw Lucas was in January so long overdue Auntie playtime was in order.  It was a great day!  Now back to the work grind :-/

Personalized Jewelry

Anyone who knows me is aware of my love of jewelry.  My absolute favorite pieces are those that are personalized.  So I was thrilled when Onenecklace sent me the loveliest personalized necklace!  I chose this necklace with the initials of my hubby and baby boy.  The store has so many pieces to choose from that it was hard just picking one!  I've worn this necklace many times since receiving it and it holds up well so the price is well worth it!  If you are in the market for a beautiful personalized necklace for you or a friend, Onenecklace has great options at an amazing price!

More importantly!!  Onenecklace is graciously providing a 10% off coupon to all Dainty & Decadent readers with code daintyanddecadent

Necklace: Onenecklace c/o  /  Sweater: GAP  /  Skirt: J. Crew Factory  /  Bag: Coach

*I was sent this necklace by the company but the review is 100% my own honest opinion.

Easter Bunny

On Saturday, my friend organized an awesome Easter egg hunt for all the little babies.  The weekend before, we had a play date at a gymnastics center and Lucas was a little hesitant with the other babies.  This weekend, however, it was great to see him socializing with the other babies to even holding hands with my friend's sweet little girl.  Lucas is in stranger danger period so I was sure he would cry when he sat on the Easter Bunny's lap but nope!  Instead he was fascinated by how soft his hands were.  I also didn't think he would keep his glasses on but I guess he's fancy like that and kept them on!  We had an amazing time and look forward to more of these days.

Florals and Grey

After months and months of not buying myself any clothes (pregnancy then post pregnancy weight), I'm finally starting to get the urge to buy a couple pieces to add to my closet.  I've sort of changed my mentality in shopping.  I've never been one to frivolously spend but, now, I'm finding that I only want to buy things if I truly love it and know I can get a lot of use out of it.  99.9% of the time, I shop online and now I triple think before I click the check out button.  If it's not something I love, mother's guilt tells me that I could save the money and put into Lucas' savings account.  Anyways, this rambling is because I saw this shirt at Target and almost didn't buy it but it made me feel happy which is just what I need to get me through long days.  

PS: I'm completely aware that this post is one big rambling hot mess ;-)

Shirt: Target  /  Dress: GAP  /  Shoes: Nine West  /  Bag: Chanel  /  Necklace: Banana Republic (old) {similar}
