It probably comes as no surprise that one of my favorite activities is snapping photos of Emma.

It’s SO MUCH FUN. Maybe it’s because she’s kind of grown up with a camera in her face. ;) But the little girl is such a ham, and she melts my heart and cracks me up.

Some ultimate Emma cuteness as of late:

  • She (as of yesterday in Seattle!) started saying “Mommy” instead of “Mama.” Of course, it happened in a public bathroom, which isn’t exactly the memory I was hoping for. But she’s been saying it non-stop, clear as day, and I’m SO HAPPY. “Mama” was sweet, but “Mommy”? #ohmygoodness
  • She’s fallen in love with my tripod. It’s kind of weird, but she carries the thing around like it’s her best friend, and adjusts it like she knows what she’s doing. My nephew used to adore my sister-in-law’s vacuum, and would give it a hug before bed. So I guess this kind of stuff runs in the family. ;)
  • She loves walking Noodle. This is awesome because I happen to dislike walking Noodle–only because Noodle is a spaz and cannot, for the life of her, walk in a straight line. (We’re tried everything!) She’s Pongo from “101 Dalmatians,” and her goal–as far as I can see it–is to trip me in front of strangers. When Emma’s walking her, though, she’s an angel. Can’t wait until Emma’s older and I can allocate her whole allowance to walking Pongo. I mean Noodle.
  • She turns everything into a telephone. A pad of paper? She holds it up to her ear and says, “Hello?” A book? She presses pretend buttons and then places a call. A television remote? She babbles into it like she’s closing some sort of business deal.
  • She kisses. I can’t with this one. Every once in a while, when I ask for a kiss, she delivers. At first, she did it with her mouth wide open, which was hilarious, haha. Now, she’s much more refined. Sometimes she’ll only offer to blow you a kiss!
  • She breaks the television and feigns innocence. Every. Single. Time. She throws up her hands and asks, “Where did it go?!”  like she has no idea.
  • She loves playing dress up. Seriously: give the girl a pair of heels and she’ll be happy for an hour. And whenever we go shopping or a package comes for her–even if it’s something boring, like a new pair of jeans that actually fits–she gets ridiculously excited. So, as you can imagine, she was ecstatic when this new outfit arrived.

Which brings me to just that. Yes, that’s a quilted Burberry coat you see in these photos. But hear me out. I bought it in a size 4 so she’ll be able to wear it for years, and I simply cuff the sleeves. I love that the sleeves are SO much longer than the ones on all other coats she’s ever owned, and that it’s appropriate for three seasons–making it wearable for far longer!

Okay, fine. The bottom line is this: I’ve also always dreamt of dressing my baby girl in a miniature Burberry coat that matches mine, and this made all my dreams come true, haha! Looking for an alternative? We have this Patagonia jacket and love it!

Next up are the Hunter boots, which also match mine. Emma LOVES shoes, but these, by far, are her favorites. (She wears them around the house on a daily basis.) I bought them for her about a year ago in a size 6, and she’s still wearing them! My best advice would be to order two or three sizes up, that way your toddler doesn’t outgrow them immediately. The size 6’s were a bit large on her at first, but they never fell off her feet. And while Emma’s big for her age, I’m guessing we won’t have to buy another pair of Hunters until next spring!

Finally, the Crewcuts stuff. I was SO excited when I found out that Nordstrom had started carrying Crewcuts! Her jeans (which we buy in a 3T) are without a doubt the softest and most well-made we own, and the turtleneck stops strangers in their tracks, haha! While it looks adorable with denim, it also looks so sweet paired with skirts or worn under dresses.

Everything came from Nordstrom, which is one of our absolute favorite retailers. We love how amazing the customer service is, the fact that the company does “price matching,” and that shipping and returns are free. The selection can’t be beat, either!

Above is what we’re currently eyeing for Emma’s spring and summer wardrobes. :)
