3 Months


It's been 3 months since this little guy entered our lives and while the days (and some nights) are long, time seems to have flown by! Maybe it's still pregnancy brain, but I feel like I have already forgotten things that have happened since he was born. He's getting too big! I want him to stay small, but yet I can't wait for him to get bigger and hit all the milestones (sleeping through the night, sitting up, etc.) I am looking forward to the warmer weather and can't wait to be outside all summer with Roman.

Roman weighed 13lbs at his 2 month appointment, so he's is really getting big. He has grown out of so many little clothes. I feel sad already packing them up when he only wore them once or twice.

A friend asked me the other day if I loved being a mom and I truly do. I can't even believe I am a mom, but I get it now. I get all the clich├ęs, for sure. I honestly never smiled more in my life. Nothing is cuter than a baby reacting to your smile and voice. It's a happiness I can't describe.  Pure joy. And it gets better and better. While my free time is gone and my life is completely different, it's awesome all the same.

I went back to work at 10 weeks and I am working from home 2 days a week while I care for Roman. It's difficult, to say the least, but it works for now and has turned out to be a great transition period for us. When I am at work, I wish I was with Roman and when I am at home a small part of me wishes I was at my desk. I'm pretty pleased with how it works for us.

Thankfully my mom has made trips up to see us every few weeks allowing Dan and I to go on dinner dates. Some friends even offered to babysit on Valentines day, which was another opportunity for us to get out alone. We have recently been taking Roman with us more to do things, but it always makes us so anxious. I'm sure it will get easier the more we do it. We are currently looking for babysitters in our neighborhood in anticipation of summer weddings and outings.

Overall things couldn't be much better and we are truly smitten with our little guy.

I love this time of year when you can pack your boots away! (Fingers crossed, no more snow!) I'm ready to transition into flats and sandals for the summer.
 
Last year I bought a version of these peep toe ankle boots in nude and I loved them so much that I want a pair of black now too!
 
I really wish I had an occasion to buy and wear these blue fringe heels. They come in black and taupe too. I would take any color!
 
BCBG makes a great knock off version of the Valentino Rockstud pump. Comes in 5 colors from DSW. Great price!
 
I have all the basic (black, nude, gold) flat sandals already so this year I am looking for some pretty colors! I really like the coral Steve Madden ones!
