Week 13

Get ready for cuteness overload. I have to post all these pictures because they are just too cute. I have started making her a bunch of headbands. Usually after she is dressed, I think a headband would go so good with that. Then I go make one in matching colors. A baby with a big flower headband is really the cutest thing ever. Plus a baby in shoes. I don’t know what it is but boy, is it cute! These boots are from her Auntie Punky and Uncle Adam.
I keep thinking I am going to have all this big news or advice to share but these last few weeks have been pretty uneventful. I have closed all the books, I stopped looking up things on the internet and I really have just started to trust myself in the decisions we make. It feels good. I think we are doing a good job, the best that Kev and I can do. Rowan really is the happiest little baby now. We had a rough start but she just loves to smile and be were all the action is now. Not too much action though. We have realized she definitely knows who she knows and when there is way more people than she is use too (with lots of noise) she just DOES NOT like that at all. It makes me feel good though that she knows our friends and that she loves them as much as they love her. She has started to do this cough laugh. It’s so funny. It’s like she wants to laugh but doesn’t know how and forces it all out in this weird cough. Haha it cracks us up. Except last night when she was on the change table, I was blowing raspberries on her tummy and she definitely made a legitimate giggle. It was only 1 but I heard it.


I am so excited for Christmas with her. I get all emotional just thinking about it. I don’t know why, but I think its because I just have so many childhood memories and traditions that surround Christmas that I want to share with her so badly. Holidays take on a whole new meaning when you have kids I’ve found. They are more special, more magical. We are bringing her to see Santa tonight. I have her outfit all picked out. I will post the picture tomorrow. Maybe when I get to my moms house later this week, I will dig up some of my old santa photos to share. It’s so fun to look back.


Rowan is wearing:

  2. If you could do a little mini tutorial on those headbands I would really appreciate it!! I have twin baby girl nieces and I would LOVE to make one of these for them for Christmas. They are sooo adorable!!

  3. Um, yes!!!! Please make the baby headbands for your shop! I have a little boy, but I would still buy them *just in case*, lol.

  4. Yes, would love to see the headbands on your shop. I have a 5 week old girl and always looking for cute things to put in her hair 🙂

  5. So cute! I love the headbands, they’re adorable. Rowan seems to really like having her picture taken! She’s always smiling in them. 🙂

  6. So cute. 🙂 I’ve made a bunch of felt flowers for headbands for my girl, but haven’t figured out the best ‘band’ option to attach them to – what do you like using?

  7. I would love to buy a headband. I have an 9 week old baby girl with tons of hair. She would look adorable in one. A tutorial is a great idea aswell. Merry Christmas!!!!

  8. WHAT A CUTIE!! I love her headband, you gotta do some sort of tutorial, I love those flowers!!

  9. Rowan is so adorable. I really love this weekly series you’ve been doing — it’s been fun to watch her grow 🙂 Her headband is really cute too.

  10. She is truly adorable and her outfit is very very fashionably! Those boots are killer! My favorite picture is the one where she looks like she’s trying to stick her tongue out. what a ham!

  11. How about adult sized headbands? I would so buy one for myself!

  12. omg. those cheeks are to die for!


  13. So. Freakin. CUTE.
    I hope she had fun with Santa. The Pup had a ball last week–yanked on Santa’s beard and giggled. And I absolutely agree about Christmas being different–everything about it is making me emotional this year. I tear up listening to Christmas music!

    Yes…..when I was looking at thephotos I was saying “what a cute headband”

  15. Chelsea M •

    oooo yes please add those to your shop!! A tutorial is always appreciated as well, I have all this felt lying around my house!!

  16. Love the headbands! I would buy them for sure.

  17. Aww she is just the most adorable little thing! Alyson laughs so much now!! I love it when I hear her laugh, no matter if I’m mad at something if she laughs that changes everything. 🙂

  18. She is just so darn cute!!

  19. she is perfect! and i love the headbands.

  20. Congratulations on getting to the point of trusting yourself. Isn’t it such an amazing feeling just to know that you will be ok? That you with make good parents?

    Your little girl is absolutely stunning. She is just beautiful.

  21. Killer boots little lady!

  22. I’m a brand new reader (I think I found you through tiktokvintage) and I love your style, but I just had to comment because my daughter’s name is Rowan too! I don’t know why I got so excited about that. Maybe because at the doctor’s office they always call her a “he” when they see her name written, and I’m thrilled to stumble across another little girl Rowan. So yeah. Beautiful little girl! Beautiful name. 🙂

  23. Please sell these headbands on your etsy account. They are ADORABLE!!!
