Kitty Cat Birthday Party

This summer Tenley has loved all things “kee kats” a.k.a kitty cats so I knew she had to have a kitty cat birthday party. At first I had not planned on having a party for her since her baby brother was due mid-August and her birthday is mid-September. However, I got really antsy the last few weeks of my pregnancy so party planning actually helped keep my mind off of how miserable/uncomfortable I was feeling. Thank goodness I did everything before Everett got here since I ended up having to have a c-section near the end of August. I definitely wouldn’t have been able to make all of this after he was born! All of the party decor was super easy to make and very affordable. I was able to purchase all my materials from Hobby Lobby which was great since I was shopping with a busy toddler. Most of the decorations consist of yarn and bells to play off of the kitten theme. I wrapped paper mache letters with yarn, added kitty ears and whiskers (pipe cleaners) to the plates to make cat heads, and made yarn balls by wrapping yarn around different sizes of styrofoam balls. I really love how it turned out especially since I had to work with the bright yellow party room at the bouncy house venue. Comment below if you want a tutorial for anything!   xoxo, Carrie

Tenley Turns Two!

How is my baby girl turning two already?! Cue the tears! This girl brings so much love and laughter to our lives. She has such a funny personality and loves to make us laugh everyday. She has been such a good big sister these past 3 weeks and loves to kiss on her baby brother every chance she gets. Tenley Grace, I can’t wait to see what this next year has in store for you! We love you!  xoxo, Mama & Dada

Everett’s Arrival!

I can’t believe it’s already been over a week since Everett was born! Tenley loved meeting her baby brother, but we definitely had to bribe her with a lollipop to be still enough for photos. #lifewithatoddler I’m so glad I had Megan Wallach Photography stop by to capture these sweet images. She is amazing and I will cherish these forever!

Toddler Fall Wardrobe Wish List

I’m currently 39 weeks pregnant and can’t take anymore of this Georgia summer heat! So I’m dreaming of cooler temps and planning Tenley’s fall wardrobe. I try to pick pieces I can mix and match when I shop for her. I like to get more bang for my buck since they will only last one season. The tops I picked out can easily be paired with the leggings or layered over the dresses (which is my favorite look). Can’t wait to order all of these! What are your toddler fall favorites??
