i was so preoccupied with trying to get darling lark up and running yesterday that i completely forgot about wardrobe wednesday! i guess it's another thoroughly stylish thursday.
TST is a little different this week. instead of an outfit, i am choosing to show off sylvie's halloween costume. i finally got some good pictures of her in it. as in, she's not flailing and/or crying. these were taken at a pumpkin patch the day before halloween. enjoy my little penguin!
the last couple of days have really kicked my butt! sylvie hasn't slept at all for the last two days. she has been awake all night long for two nights now, and keeps refusing to go down for naps. she is fussy, whiney, and all around inconsolable. we took her to the pediatrician this morning and discovered an ear infection. poor girl! i really hope the antibiotics help her quickly.
if there's one thing i've learned about mommyhood so far it's that there is always something. we finally got her tummy issues worked out and now she's sick. it turns out she does have multiple protein intolerances. my intuition was correct after months of doctors trying to convince me it was colic or reflux or just normal behavior. UM excuse me, but watching my baby scream through every feeding for 2 months is NOT "normal" behavior. we switched her to neocate, which is a protein-free, amino acid based formula. she's been on it for 10 days now, and she is a completely different baby. she is smiling consistently for the first time, and is happily engaging with the world around her. it's amazing to be able to put her down in her play gym or swing and have time to brush my teeth or make a sandwich. she seems so much happier. despite being sick and in pain, she's still in better shape than she was 2 weeks ago. amazing.
for obvious reasons, wardrobe wednesday didn't happen yesterday. we are all completely exhausted and my milky moo was not in the mood to tolerate anything other than pajamas. who can blame her? so we'll call this installment thoroughly stylish thursday. this picture and outfit are from a few days ago. i call this look "black and white and cute all over". as my very best friend was kind enough to point out, i am a dork.
fleece peacoat: target (part of a set), striped pants: h&m
i am in love with this outfit. i think we might dress her in it again for our trip to the pumpkin patch this weekend. it matches her new halloween ghost hat perfectly.
well it seems as if my little sylvie has finally allowed her eyes to close. she will only sleep on her daddy's chest, but it's a start. wish us luck for tonight! i have a feeling we're going to need it.

this week sylvie had two awesome outfits. instead of picking one, i'm just going to include both. double the style!
sylvie wore this first outfit yesterday for another trip to the park. it's getting cold quickly and we're soon going to lose our weekly afternoon spent in the park. i'm bummed.
sweater: thrifted, skinny jeans: babies r us, shoes: target
sylvie wore this second outfit today for a trip over to our friends' house to meet their new baby.
headband: target (part of a 2 pack), jean jacket: thrifted, onesie: gerber, customized by my buddy travis (another travis!)polka dot pants: baby gap
the other big news this week is that this happened:
when did my squishy little newborn become a full-fledged baby? oy!
i was thinking about starting a new weekly feature on the blog called wardrobe wednesday. every wednesday i will post a picture of sylvie's cutest outfit from the past week.
yesterday we went on our weekly family outing to the park. fall is in full force here and the days have been chilly but beautifully sunny. here is what sylvie wore:
headband: target (part of a 3 pack), cardigan-style sweatshirt: baby gap (it's reversible!)skinny jeggings and booties: babies r us
i have been waiting for that headband and those jeans to fit her! sylvie's general style is comfortable, a little bit tomboy, a little bit hip, but always with a feminine accessory thrown in.
what do you think of wardrobe wednesday? would you like to see more of sylvie's styles every week?
