for mommy or mila. a chic lunch, all the same


in the bag.

the days of packing lunches for our little ones are far ahead but in gold foil seems a great way to get thru the day, don’t you think?

a little fur goes a long way but a touch makes my wild little man all the more, especially in shaggy lion.

happy halloween.

mila photography by heidi geldhauser

i had a little halloween fun earlier this season when i did a shoot for west elm . + mila was included for a teepee shot, so her costume was then inspired.  you can see the rest of the shoot her on babiekins!

happy halloween.

last year’s costume was a tiger, and this year my little lion has stolen my heart again. i figure i have limited time to dress him “cute” before he wants to start wearing the something the cool kids will envy.

toddler bed. tried & true.

we had to take the plunge and move wyatt from his sweet nursery into a big boy room, and boy does he love it already. well, i would too if i had these fab twin bunks to play in all day!

toddler bed. don’t say it’s so.


so it is not so, yet – but i know it is looming at some point in the next year [ maybe pushing it].  but this one sure seems like a little inspiration of dreamy black + white that will translate perfectly into her current nursery scheme.


tiny trousers.

it’s hard finding the perfect pants for wyatt but these tiny trousers can’t be beat with the smart drawstring detailing.

sometimes it’s hard to find cute, neutral kids toys that wyatt will love but this little chalkboard laptop caught my eye immediately! because i’m guilty of being on mine all-too-much during the day, it’s the perfect thing to keep him creative and just like mom.

a mini cloud [+tutu] for the mini


in fashion, there is nothing i love more than pairing a basic with something dressy or unexpected. i love the juxtaposition of the look.  and this look is just the look for little mila.

everything about this clock sings to me. the appearance. the gold little birdie on top. the minimialistic appearance. and its’ name. freebird clock.
