A new nursing line of apparel, Kinwolfe, has teamed up with bloggers and website to help them spread the word out throughout the breastfeeding community.
So the plan was to have the girls wear these adorable and cool outfits to Disney and take lots of adorable and cool photos with them hugging and holding hands and looking adorable and cool with the Cinderella’s castle in the background.
Just like most everything in motherhood, then real life happened.
Real life means two crabby 2 year olds who either wanted a balloon or nothing to do with each other (hold hands…ha!) or out of the heat or to go ride rides.
Lesson learned, little ones, lesson learned.
I am super excited about getting this series started.
Aside from the fact that we live in Florida with eternal sunshine, UV rays, SPF, UPF and swimsuits, I am just really stoked about the swimsuit companies I have found and have been using that I want to share with you.
This has to be my favorite children’s swimsuit company. I have never seen such unique and colorful designs.
So I have a lot of photos from Lexitwin birthday party.
In order to share some of them, I decided to break the posts down into parts, just like before.

With this part being all about our party outfits which was a big part of party planning.
The other day we visited the library for a petting zoo and some book reading. Lexi wore her pink Nununu dress from the Spring collection and I swear that she has never received as many compliments on a dress as that day.
It really is so unique, so I wanted to share these photos here, since I don’t do Instagram anymore.
Also I have some iPhone photos to share that I really love, because they show a more real side of our lives, because they get snapped at a moment’s notice.
This morning when my daily Zulily email came through, I saw that they are having a RUUM sale. Being one of my favorite and really inexpensive brands, I thought I would give you guys a heads up and post some pics of the two Lexis in their RUUM outfits for Vday this year. Both the heart sweater and the heart t-shirt are available on zulily for 17.99 and 6.99. Aren’t they cute?
The very first post of the Disney recap and series from this year is a very visual one. It’s the very first post in part because it doesn’t require much writing, mostly photography. The other Disney posts will have to do more with tips, ideas on what to ride and what to skip if you’re visiting with a toddler, where to stay, what to take, as well as the photo recap of our annual 2 weeks at Disney.
For those new to the blog, we live three hours away and go to Disney regularly (once a month at least), but every year we also take an extended 2 week stay at Disney to enjoy the parks fully and visit all the attractions. The annual visit always falls on September, the least busy time of the year, so we get to walk onto all ride and really maximize our time there. Read about Disney Trip 2012.
A relatively big part of planning for our trip is always outfit selection. I’m not very good at styling clothes for myself, and it’s too hot in Florida to really style much for a toddler (since you cannot layer or use leggings and other accessories under skirts and dresses), but I always enjoy planning what we’d be wearing for each park and each day. And, of course, having a baby girl is absolutely amazing, because you get to dress her up even more (though I have to admit some of these brand make ADORABLE baby boy clothing, too). And if you’re not interested in clothing, at least you’ll get to enjoy beautiful photography.
This post has been due since Lexi started walking 5 months ago.
Such an important part of a baby’s wardrobe.
Making sure what they are wearing is comfortable, doesn’t rub, lasts through their roughplaying, looks great and is versatile (because at $30-50 per quality pair of shoe, they better last long and look great).
Proper footwear is surprisingly important for your baby’s foot health, their developing walking skills and their comfort.
Here are our favorite shoes and brands:
I am absolutely in love with the Russian trend in baby clothes. This is quite unlike me because I don’t tend to like “Russian things”, but the old Russian style of Matreshkas and roses and fashions of that era agrees with me. The heritage plays a big role, too, of course. I do want Alexis to know where her mom came from and the history of Russia and its rich culture. One day we’ll be sitting next to each each other reading History of Russia together ( as long as her love of reading continues to grow like on steriods).
One of my favorite brands, Polarn O Pyret, surprised me with a release of Russian Rose collection (search for it on their website) this year, which is, mind you, on sale right now. I am in love! They really are masters of prints. Check out this post about their spring pattern on Daily Mom
So one of the cooler spring days, when my mom was still here ( *tear*), we went out for a walk in the park and a little Russian Rose inspired photoshoot.
