With Fall upon us I am so excited to dress Mila up in adorable sweaters. Babies look so cute in cardigans and sweaters! Below you can find these sweet sweaters to layer your baby girl in this Fall.

1 Fox Print Sweater

This Fox Print sweater is adorable! I love the knitted fox with flowers in her hair and it totally says Autumn. We need to get this for Mila because she adores her fox stuffed animal.

2 Embroidered Nature Sweater

I love this unique nature sweater! Great for the outdoor enthusiasts with a baby girl who joins them on their fun adventures. There is a little squirrel, leaves, a chickadee bird and flowers beautifully embroidered on it, how cute!

3 Organic Cotton Horse Sweater

A darling red horse knit sweater for the baby who loves horses. Such a sweet sweater and even better it is made of environmentally friendly organic cotton!

4 Fawn Cardigan Sweater

I love everything about this baby cardigan. It is a pretty teal color and has such beautiful embroidered flowers, fawn, bird and little mouse, how sweet!

5 Bird Fair Isle Dress

What a beautiful and unique baby sweater dress. The bird pockets are so pretty, as is the knit design on the top! This is sure to keep your baby girl warm this Fall and into Winter, paired with some leggings.

6 Flower Embroidered Cardigan

Simple, yet classy this mustard cardigan totally reads Fall. The embroidered pink flowers along the edges are really elegant. This is the perfect piece to have as a layer for your baby this season.

 7 Knited Koala Bear Cardigan

This cardigan is gorgeous! It features two knitted koala bears along with other intricate designs that would definitely look cute on any baby wearing it. This could also be worn by a baby boy as it has a neutral design.

8 Cat Knit Sweater

What a cute little cat sweater! I love all of the embroidered flowers on the kitty's head along with variety of colors on the trim and sleeves.

9 Fair Isle Cardigan

I'm a fan of Fair Isle knits and this cute sweater for baby has lots of fun intricate shapes and designs.

10 Floral Embroidered Cardigan

Pretty embroidered flowers stand out on this navy blue cardigan. This is a nice piece to have in baby's fall wardrobe to mix and match with other pieces.

11 Crochet Cardigan

This is a timeless piece that will match with everything in baby's fall wardrobe! The crochet is so pretty and it looks both cute and comfortable.

12 Chevron Lace Sweater

This chevron knit sweater is adorable! I love the pink and orange color combination, the chevron pattern and especially the attached knit flower.

Our new pretty brass hardware!

One of the first updates I was excited to make in the kitchen was to replace the cabinet's hardware. The kitchen was newly remodeled when we bought our home, but the cabinet knobs were dark and not our style. I searched all over the internet to find the right knobs and things actually worked out perfectly by chance when I ordered through The Mine.

The view from Beauty Bay.

My husband had a week long business trip to attend in Couer D'Alene, Idaho (CDA) and fortunately Mila and I were able to come along. Mila and I hung out during the day and went exploring. After the work day was over we all got to spend time together. We stayed with Tom's family and it was a wonderful trip! I have visited CDA Idaho before when Tom and I were on a road trip to Canada, for a week long hiking adventure back in 2012. We had ate lunch and had wine at the Coeur D'Alene Resort that overlooks the lake. The city is really beautiful. I was happy to be able to see the town more this time around and even more excited to be on this trip with our daughter.

Our trip highlights were swimming in Beauty Bay and taking Mila to the lake just the three of us, seeing family, seeing fawns, wild turkeys, seeing Mila spend time with her grandparents, stroller walks to the amazing park, date night, and all of the yummy food we ate.

My husband surprised me with this beautiful Stargazer Lily bouquet last week. It was the best surprise and it definitely made my day! I seriously have the most amazing husband who is so thoughtful. :) I absolutely love flowers and I really love how they look on our dining table arranged in a vase. This is my first Stargazer Lily bouquet and they are definitely gorgeous blooms!

Now that I am a mother and I have given birth, one's birthday has so much more meaning. It is an ABSOLUTELY magical day when your soul chose to enter this life, your parents having created you, and I believe it is always a cause for celebration. From an astrological perspective your soul even chose the exact hour, minute and location of where you were born, all which make up our birth charts which are hugely symbolic and have so much significance.

Giving birth to Mila was one of the most surreal experiences I have ever been through. I gave birth to her naturally, with no pain medication or epidural and after 14 hours of labor our amazing, sweet little girl entered this world, it was an unbelievably beautiful experience. She will forever be our blessing and our pride and joy. :)
