“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” Anne of Green Gables

Cheers-ing | A few things: Fall and Phoenix’s first holiday season, the safe arrival of friend’s babies and a development I’ll share very soon!

Organizing | My closet! I packed away my maternity clothes and weeded out the pieces that no longer fit or aren’t practical for my life anymore. Breastfeeding changes what I wear on a day-to-day basis.

Dreaming | What Phoenix will be for Halloween. I’m not sure if I’ll buy a costume or piece meal one together. Originally, Jordan was flying out for work that evening but the dates moved! I’m excited to trick-or-treat with our friends again. I didn’t know it, but last year I was pregnant!

Buying | New Jeans. My bones shifted during pregnancy and even though I’ve lost most of the baby weight, my hips are wider. During Levi’s sale, I ordered several and found the perfect pair of jeans. The high rise offers the perfect coverage for breastfeeding!

Listening | Podcasts, always and the new Bon Iver album. It’s delicious and perfect for a cozy fall evening.

Don’t forget to join in with Anne’s currently challenge next month. I’m the co-host!

Linking with Anne and Jacqui.

  1. Nice! I really need to weed through my closet. I’ve been hanging onto way too many clothes that just don’t fit anymore. I’m also super excited about Halloween. I bought all my boys’ costumes on clearance last year, so they’re ready. Now, just have to find something for me!

  2. I know it must be so fun to get to have your baby experiencing his first of all the different seasons. Even though he is young, I know it is enjoyable for you for him to be “participating” with you 🙂

  3. Cleaning my closet out was a little sad (mostly because I went on a shopping spree and bought myself an entire new wardrobe just a month before I found out I was pregnant that will just never fit me again), but it’s SO nice having a closet of only things that fit you and your current season of life!

    1. Oh no!! I mostly stopped purchasing clothes the last year before I got pregnant since I was doing fertility treatments. I was down to 3 pairs of pants so I don’t feel bad if I never fit in them again.

  4. Ohhhh I bet it’s so fun to look at different baby costumes. Have you seen the little skunk ones? SO adorable on babies in the crawling stage. As Chelsea said, it really is so nice to have a closet of clothes that fit you in the life-season you’re in. I recently discovered Old Navy jeggings and though I was reluctant at first, I’m quite sure they’re the non-pregnant equivalent of maternity jeans. Love them.

  5. Baby’s first holiday season is so fun – can’t wait to see what you dress up your little munchkin as too 🙂 And I didn’t know about the new Bon Iver album – PERFECT as it gets colder outside and cozier inside!

  6. I’m still figuring out my new body after baby…but you look great and I’m loving the new hair! I have to book myself something soon because I can’t decide whether to chop it off or try to grow it out 😉

    1. Thanks, Kelly! I think the biggest surprise is, despite breastfeeding, my chest only went up one size. I expected to gain more up top. It’s interesting what changes and what doesn’t.

      I think you look great with short hair but I know the desire to grow out ones hair. I’ve had it short several times!
