games of make believe


I loved browsing though these images from Waddler.  seeing the kids smiling and laughing while playing instantly brought back memories of my childhood.  the games I used to play and the adventures I would take.   when I was a kid, I loved pretending.  one day I’d be a gymnast, tumbling around my parent’s giant bedroom floor and the next I was a spy on a secret mission, hiding high in the trees in my front yard.  another time I set up a post office in my dining room, using the slatted windows and sill as my work space.  and just like most kids, I’d build massive forts in the living room, with couch cushions and nearly every sheet in the house.  then my best friend and I would pretend we were queens, each from an opposing nation, defending our fort.

it makes me excited for Wolf to grow up.  he’s got lots of games of make believe waiting for him and days where playtime and exploration consume every ounce of his being.

a wolf in stripes

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: there’s nothing cuter than a baby in stripes.  this little one in particular does them quite well.  the kind folks at Polarn O. Pyret sent Wolf a set of the eco-stripe leggings and top in their classic red and white stripes.  and in perfect timing – they are the cutest for the holidays!  yesterday when he had them on I kept thinking he looked like a little Santa and all he needed was a hat and fluffy white beard.  the little clothes from PO.P are so soft and cozy.  is it too much that I’m considering these leggings as pjs for myself?

Wolf has a few pairs of socks from PO.P as well and they are the best.  they actually stay on his busy feet when everything else seems to fall off.

ada ada – nights shining armor

ada ada fall 11

since I first happened upon Ada Ada back in the spring, it’s fast becoming my favorite haunt for baby clothes and outfit inspiration.  in my opinion, you can’t go wrong with grey and navy, just can’t.  I love the way the collection is styled to be used as layering pieces.  I’ve been concerned with how to keep Wolf warm when winter arrives.  the jackets I’ve seen seem so bulky for his long skinny size, so I love the idea of layering him up.

Wolf has a few pieces from Ada Ada, a onesie {which we call his “howl at the moon” onesie}, some leggings and a blanket.  we just love them!
