Chilly May Library Attire

I love shopping for Reagan!  Not only are the clothes in her size super cute, but she will pretty much wear anything that I put on her.

Monday’s are library days for Reagan and her cousins.  Comfy clothes are in order, since there is a lot of quiet sitting and not a whole lot of movement…who am I kidding…she is all over every inch of the kids section of the library.  She sits and listens during story time, sings songs, reads books, plays with blocks and puzzles, colors, plays on the computer, climbs stairs to gaze at the beautiful doll house, puts on puppet shows and drenches herself every single time that she attempts to drink out of the water fountain.

It was rather chilly this morning here in Rochester, 46 degrees…perfect jeans weather!


I love this zipper sweat shirt jacket from Gap Kids.  Its super soft and buttons as well as zips.  This double closure is fantastic for Reagan, because she is becoming a pro at unzipping and taking things off, but hasn’t yet figured out buttons.  If she gets the zipper down, I know the jacket will stay on. Unfortunately, I can’t locate the jacket online.  It was purchased in NYC, off of the sales rack, about a month ago.

Reagan’s adorable raspberry colored crocheted hat was purchased at Old Navy back in February. Check out these adorable crocheted hats

Reagan rocks Chucks, just like her daddy! I love this aqua color!

The ‘tu tu cute’ long sleeved  gray shirt is from Old Navy- similar graphic t’s.  These cotton shirts are my go to for Reagan.  The cotton is super soft and cleans fabulously!  The only problem that we have with these shirts, is that I find them to be short in the torso, so I always buy a size up.

These Old Nay colored jeans are a huge hit with Reagan.  Reagan owns  4 different pairs of these jeans.  She’s very proud of herself when she searches through her pants drawer and finds the color that she’s looking for!  These jeans do stretch out, however, it takes several hours for them to do so.

Socks!! It took forever to find the perfect socks for Reagan.  Her feet were growing, but she still needed tread on the bottoms of her socks- We have wood flooring and tile throughout our home, with the exception of Reagan’s room. – These reindeer socks are from Janie and Jack.  Here are the same socks but with kite’s on them- Reagan has these too!

Perfect library outfit for a chilly Rochester day!


Perfect Morning

Bundle up the kiddos it’s time to feed the UCKS! Check out that 55 degree temperature…Woot! Woot! Today was a cloudy Rochester day (not a shocker), but was nice enough for us to be able to spend the late morning and early afternoon outdoors with t he kids! The ‘ucks’ as Reagan calls the ducks were at the top of her to do list, so we met Erin and the boys in Schoen Place for some much-needed uck time.

Reagan feels the need to snack right along with the ucks, which is why we can never bring anything but fresh bread…those lucky little ucks.

When the bread was gone, we headed across the canal to have lunch and dance in the pavilion.  Oh to be a kid again.  These two are hysterical and love to dance to their favorites Justin and Kelis!

After a few falls, it was time to head to the library for a much-needed potty break and a little QT.  Henry gave me a long talk about how important it is for Reagan to have two gloves…his reasons included – only a few fingers being warm, her boo boo on her hand getting cold and not getting better and it looking silly. He’s such a smart kid- I felt like I was getting a lecture from my dad. (only one glove made it into the stroller from the trunk of the car)

The library is a comfortable and familiar place for both kids.  They know their boundaries and enjoy being able to have a bit of freedom to choose what they would like to do. They stuck together today…

Time flies when you’re having fun and before we knew it nap time was quickly approaching.  It was back in the stroller for Reagan and a quick walk to the car for Henry.  Holden was a trooper, like always, and slept the entire time!

How lucky are we to be able to stay home with our kids?  I am so grateful to be able to experience each new adventure with Reagan and fortunate enough to have Erin, Henry and Holden to share the adventures with as well.
