Friday Favorites

This week has been a quiet one.  I gladly welcomed the scheduled routine and slowness after the adventures of last week.  Little R felt the same.  It seems like the 5-month switch (if there is such a thing) turned on overnight.  He dropped a feeding this week, shifted from eating every 2.5 hours to 3 hours, and he is sleeping 7.5-8hour stretches at night.  After a week in NYC, I prepared myself for a transition back to our normal routine but thankfully there wasn't much of one.  We simply stayed indoors enjoying the comfort of our own home.  I spent a lot of time thinking about how I want to create little R's play space that I'll start on after the holidays pass.  We will rearrange my office to where half of the room is his space where he can safely play while I am working.  I'm determined to figure out a functional, creative way to make it work!  Here's a rundown of our favorites... For Little R (21 weeks)... celebrating 5 months old! jumping in his Graco Jump N Jive Doorway Jumper loving his elephant ornament from his bff Levi;)

For myself... getting our Christmas cards in the mail being inspired by these work spaces: 1, 2, & 3 reading French Women Don't Get Fat

For all the mamas & mamas-to-be... resharing these gift ideas for little ones loving these play spaces: 1, 2 & thinking every child needs a day in the life documented

And a little more sweetness from my session with baby Eli in NYC... If you are a stay at home/work from home mama, how do you make it work with you and your little ones?  I'd love to hear your thoughts.  Enjoy the weekend.  xoxo...*holly
