I haven’t done an outfit post since AUGUST. I was 8 months pregnant! Needless to say, a lot has happened since then. I’m learning how to re-dress myself with a flabbier-than-I-would-prefer belly and a nursing mom’s somewhat limited wardrobe. It doesn’t seem that difficult but somehow I’m struggling. I tend to fall back on jeans, a comfy shirt, and my leather jacket. Or leggings and one of Mark’s old shirts on slower days. haha. However, Cora’s wardrobe is kicking ass if I do say so myself. I shamelessly have a #whatcorawore hashtag on instagram. Judge away, my friends. Judge away.
blazer :: target.
skull tee :: I literally do not remember and I cut the label out…oops.
jeans :: forever 21.
green flats :: amazon.
necklace :: forever 21.
And yes, I outright refused to go outside so welcome to our living area. ;)
Anytime someone tells you Christmas is way more fun with a kid.. They’re not kidding. Even with an almost 3 month old who had no idea what was happening, it was still so fun. Our little family may or may not have opened presents like, three days early. Zero patience here. But in the end it worked out because Cora caught her first little head cold the day before Christmas Eve. :/
She ended up being a trooper, we just spent a lot of time sucking her brains out with the Nose Frieda. ;) I totally knocked that thing when Mark insisted we register for it and now I’m so glad we did. Lifesaver! But enough about my child’s snot..
We spent Christmas Eve with Mark’s dad’s family (somehow we took no photos), and Christmas morning at Mark’s sister’s house.
This has been a fun little tradition we’ve done the last couple of years.. It’s just us, Mark’s sister Laura and her little family, Mark’s mom, and my almost-brother-in-law’s brother (that’s confusing, sorry). We meet up late in the morning in our jammies, have some brunch (and mimosas and eggnog!), and open gifts. I can’t wait until next year when Cora can enjoy it a bit more!
After we left Laura’s we headed to Duncan to have Christmas with my mom and brother.
Mom completely spoiled all of us, per usual, and we ate Mexican food. I’m glad Cora got to spend her first Christmas night with her Meme. She was a little grumpy in the photo but I swear she had fun. haha!
Also, before Christmas Mark and I had convinced ourselves that Cora wouldn’t get much because I mean…how much does a 3 month old need?
Yeah. We need to make a toy box for her and our front room is currently overtaken by baby things because her room is too tiny. ;) She is one loved little Biscuit and I’m so glad she’s ours.
