2nd "Fix"

 Well you guys, Sitch Fix KILLED it for my 2nd fix. They sent me exactly what I asked for: modest skirts for church, blouses, and accessories.

It's like Christmas opening a Stitch Fix box!

 Item #1: Blue Blouse. Absolutely lovely. I love the modest v neck and flowy feel around the waist. BUT I can find something just like it for a lot cheaper somewhere else.

 Item #2: You can't see it well, but its a fitted brown pencil skirt. This was Brandon's favorite item but I decided Kim, my MIL, could easily make something like this for me (she's a sewing genius).

 Item #3: Leopard Print Eternity Scarf. WINNER. I definitely kept this one.

 Item #4: Multi-Colored Chevron Print Maxi Skirt. Oh my heck, I absolutely loved it AND it was long enough (WHAT?) but I just couldn't get myself to spend 60 bucks on a cotton maxi. Again, Kim could make that for me for a fraction of the cost.

 Item #5: Black European Jacket. This was absolutely fabulous but unfortunately it was too short in the arms (I had pulled them down for the picture) and a little too snug around the chest (holy nursing boobs!) so I sent this back as well.
I ended up only keeping this scarf but boy, do I love this scarf. It is SO, as I always say, yummy (it's really soft).

I feel like Stitch Fix is really hit or miss with the pricing of their items. This scarf was really reasonable but 60 bucks for a cotton maxi? C'mon now! One thing is for sure though, it gives me ideas of what to look for in the stores on my own (or ideas for what I could ask Kim to sew for me. haha). I was really grateful that they went to my Pinterest style board to really get a sense of what I like. Thanks Stitch Fix!

Seis Meses!

 Another month has flown by. The biggest development this month is that Ander is sitting up like a pro. It's funny because he started sitting so suddenly. I would always set him down and seconds later he would flop over. Then one day he decided he could do it and within 3 days, he was awesome at it. ha ha. What a big boy!

 He tried solid foods for the first time this month. He loves rice cereal, sweet potato and pears. He is not so sure about oatmeal and green beans. Ha ha. I'm excited to start making his baby food tomorrow! :)

 Valentines Day was lots of fun. I had TWO Valentines AND I got an awesome blender to make his baby food! Woot!

He has changed so much in 6 months...

 He loves to "fly". If he is on his tummy, you can bet all his limbs are in the air. Ha ha. I have a feeling it's gonna take him ages to figure out crawling. I'm okay with that. ;)

 He is such  cheese ball. ha ha. He knows how adorable he is.

 We FINALLY had a couple days of glorious sunshine! We went to the park every day it was warm and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. :)

He has lost most of his newborn hair (sad face) but he is getting in new baby hair. It will be interesting to see what happens to his dark brown mullet hair at the back of his head. lol. His McCloskey grandparents are SURE he is going to be blonde (as a kid) so we will see...
Like I said, major cheese... haha

 Look mom, giraffe legs!
