coy maverick: one month old

tomorrow my little coy mav will be six weeks old.
you guys, i'm so obsessed with him.. SO OBSESSED.  i just want to bottle him up and keep him little forever.  why do they grow so fast?!

coy maverick

1 month old
8 pounds 15 ounces
22 inches 

-taking baths
-the mamaroo
-wiggle time

-getting dressed
-riding in the car
-poopy diapers
-being swaddled

he is the sweetest little thing and perfect addition to our family.  he is extremely chill, until he's not. hahaha when he wants something he will definitely let you know and has quite the shriek little shrill cry.  brooks and remi absolutely adore him.  every morning they come in and ask if coy is awake and then they take turns talking, cuddling, and holding him in my bed.  they are so helpful and willing to get me diapers, wipes, binky, etc.

for the first month, mr. coy wasn't gaining weight.  when he was born he was 9 pounds 3 ounces  at one week he was 8 pounds 6 ounces, and when we went to his two week check up he had gone down two ounces to 8 pounds 4 ounces.  we started taking him in for weekly weigh ins and i mostly pumped and bottle fed him so i could keep track of how much he was drinking.
3 weeks - 8 pounds 6 ounces
4 weeks - 8 pounds 6 ounces
5 weeks - 8 pounds 15 ounces

he is slowly but surely gaining weight, and he might actually be up to his birth weight now because he seems to be getting chubbier.  my doctor said that he might just be a tall, skinny dude.  we will keep taking him in every two weeks, but he is happy and healthy.

-size 1 diapers
-newborn & 0-3 month clothes
-wakes up once a night
-started smiling right before 4 weeks

i think he's going to have blue eyes and darker hair than my other two.  i sure love my three blue eyed babes.  coy maverick, we sure love you!!nn

own it.

have you ever seen a trend or style that you've wanted to try, but weren't sure if you could pull off?
have you ever felt self conscious wearing something out of the ordinary?

well, i'm here to tell you that you are not alone.
i often times feel this way, but then i remember you just gotta own it.
that's pretty much my fashion mantra.
i've learned that if you are confident in what you are wearing, it's going to show and people will notice... in a good way :)

and that is how i ended up with this awesome jumpsuit from eShakti.

as i was scrolling through all of their lovely pieces, this jumpsuit kept catching my eye.  i've always wanted a jumpsuit, but the wide legs had me like ehhhh.. i don't know.
and then i thought, "what the heck, i'm going to go out of my comfort zone and just own it."
so i pulled the trigger and i got it.  the best part though, is that eShakti will totally tailor all of their pieces to fit your comfort level.  this particular piece you could customize the sleeve length, the pant length, and whether or not you wanted pockets (the answer is yes! always yes!).  another cool feature is that you always put in your height, and they will fit the clothing article to your height.

  this jumpsuit was sleeveless and if there is anything i hate, it is when i have to wear something under or wear something over a piece to make it more modest.  Luckily, eShakti had my back.  i was able to choose to add sleeves at no extra cost and because fall is upon us, i decided to go with long sleeves.


i absolutely love how it turned out. i'm not going to lie, when i first tried it on i was a little iffy about the wide leg pants.  i decided to rock it and own it and i ended up loving it.  the wide leg pants are pretty much the most comfortable thing my body has ever worn.  even though it took me a minute to feel comfortable and confident, i'm so glad i gave them a chance and stepped out of my comfort zone.  i'm totally digging the 70's vibe they give me.

basically, i just wanted to say, step out of your comfort zone and try something new. do it and own it, because confidence is beautiful and so are you :)

also, i wouldn't be mad if these pieces from eShakti made it into my closet

and because every post is better with an awkward photo...

you're welcome :)

{first family outing}

on friday, we decided to venture out into nature and see the beautiful leaves changing up near sundance and aspen grove.  if you haven't been up there yet, GO!  it is the perfect time.  all the colors are so bright and vibrant.  it's gorgeous!! 

it was so nice to get out of the house and have some fresh air.  it was a bit chilly up in the mountains, but coy stayed nice and warm in the stroller, while we all explored some trails.

brooks and remi are quite the little collectors.  brooks always seems to go after the sticks and remi is partial to the rocks.  they both had quite the collection by the time we were done.

snug as a bug, this one hardly made a peep.

we followed our nature adventure up with some pizza pie cafe.  it was the perfect family date.  i'm very much looking forward to all things fall and the different activities we can do as a family.
what is your favorite fall family activity?
