Frances: 5 Months






Well hello there. I’m back with an update on our five month old girl. We’ve been having so much fun with this little baby that we skipped her four month old pictures (terrible parents already…), but for five months we made it happen.

In the last couple of months she’s started doing some new things – the best are her making raspberries and her giggles. She especially loves to do raspberries with her dad. They go back and forth with each other, blowing bubbles and probably spitting all over each other’s faces. Her laughs are less frequent, but when they happen, they are beyond adorable.

She hasn’t really rolled over yet on her own. Two times she’s rolled from back to front but she had a little help because she rolled off her mat and the rug, onto the floor – so there was a little incline to help out. She is grabbing everything in sight though and putting it in her mouth. I’m wondering if a tooth will be popping through soon.

She’s still sleeping through the night, but right at four months when I read she may start to experience the ‘four month sleep regression’ she did. Basically now she’s going into deep REM sleeps, so when she wakes from one she has a harder time getting herself back to sleep. During this time she also loves to maneuver herself up to the top of her crib and then start crying because her head is hitting the crib. Chris has been awesome at going into her room when she’s crying in the middle of the night. He usually just has to move her back down and put her pacifier in her mouth and back to sleep she goes.

We couldn’t love her any more and we couldn’t be any more thankful for such a sweet girl.

Now I’m going to go cry that she’ll be six months old in a few weeks…

First Halloween




We dressed up baby girl for her first Halloween. She was all ready to greet the trick or treaters with three giant bags of candy. And then we only got on trick or treater. We just moved to this house in March and while the neighborhood definitely has a lot more kids, around us the kids are a little too young. The quieter than expected night gave us more time to take pictures of our sweet little bunny rabbit. And to eat as much candy as we wanted…


Summer to Fall Maxi Dress




Maxi Dress (similar)  //  Sweater Cardigan (similar)  //  Scarf (similar)  //  Parallel Face & Body Tinted Lip Balm  // Flats (similar)

This is the dress I wore to my baby shower and I’ve been wanting to wear it again but haven’t had a proper occasion. Then I saw how Christine styled a summer maxi dress for Fall and had to try it myself. It’s fun carrying certain favorite or lesser worn pieces into other seasons with the addition of a few layers.

Warm Living Room


Danish Teak Lounge Chair  //  Leather Couch  //  Black & White Pillow  //  Red, Yellow & Black Pillow  //  Coffee Table  //  Floor Lamp  //  Gold Bowl  //  Side Table  // Orange Planter

I’ve always thought I leaned more towards cool colors, but I realized recently that when it comes to our house I’m the complete opposite. In our living room you’ll find lots of warm colors – oranges, reds, yellows. These colors do exactly what they say – they warm the house. Especially in the living room, it makes for a cozy and cheerful setting that’s perfect for our family to hang out in.

Chairish reached out to me recently and asked me to create a styleboard around a chair and its color scheme. Of course my eyes were immediately drawn to the warm red of this midcentury modern chair. To complete the living room inspiration I gravitated toward lots of neutrals with just a few extra added pops of color.
