Mama + Mini Monday: Owl Sweaters

| Leave a comment

Like all children, Ada loves animals and her favorite toys are all her stuffed animals. And like most, her favorites are dogs, cats, and bunnies. But then she has a few that she loves that are a little out of the ordinary. And those animals are sheep, goats, and owls. She lights up the most when she sees these three animals and always loudly says the animal noise when she sees them. So when I came across this owl sweatshirt for her at OldNavy, I just knew I had to get it for her.

She loves this sweatshirt! Whenever she wears it she scoots around the house saying, “Who! Who!”; over and over again! Not to mention it is very soft and warm. Perfect for these cold, rainy days; like we had this weekend. And Ada loves when I wear my owl sweater, too.

She points at my sweater and says, “Who! Who!” and is fascinated with the beaded eyes. As you can tell, this is her favorite game. She enjoys finding animals everywhere and saying what they say. She loves going to Target because of the big dog that they have all over the store. She just sits in the buggy, points at every dog she sees, and barks.

My owl sweater is from WallisFashion. I bought this sweater several years ago when owls were big. It is hard to find an owl sweater now. But J.Crew, Anthropologie, and ModCloth have been known to have some. So this poses a question – are owls sweaters out of style now? Oh well if they are, I like mine and Ada’s too much to care if it is or not! 😉 My jeggings are from No Nonsense and are perfect for wearing with boots. Not to mention, they feel like you are wearing yoga pants!

Please excuse my very tired eyes, I haven’t slept well in about a week and I am feeling it! Ada has been working on so many teeth here lately and has been crazy fussy. I mean, scream at the top of her lungs just out of the blue, fussy! Her temper tantrums are pretty hard core, too. Last night, she got mad at me when I took her out of her bubble bath, for bed time, and she clawed my face and neck. Needless to say, it has been a rough week in our house. And to finish up our weekend, we stayed up late wrapping Christmas presents! I love making Christmas special for Ada, but dang I am tired! #momlife

But you can’t tell in this picture that Ada has been screaming and just down right mean this week. She looks like a perfect little angel here.

She makes the funniest faces! And as you can tell, she did not want to hold still. For a baby that doesn’t walk, she sure can get around. But good news on the moving – Ada crawled for the first time this weekend! It was slow going and she still scooted on her knees rather than crawl. But this is a big deal for us! The fact that she is even putting herself into a crawling position and trying to move that way is huge! So way to go Ada!

I do love this crazy, sweet little girl. Even when she is a bit unpleasant, I know that she doesn’t mean to be. And most of the time, Ada is a loving, sweet, snuggly baby. I hope that she gets to feeling more herself soon. We all need some sleep around here! Happy Monday ya’ll!
