It’s my first Mommy + me post of the year and I am kind of excited about it! 🙂 For this look, we went with matching stripes in a casual look. I’m wearing a striped turtleneck, that is SOO good for layering with a chunky cardigan over it with jeans and boots. And a fabulous statement necklace, because even casual outfits need a little fab, yea? 😉
For Vivian, she is wearing a super comfy romper with a intricate jacket over it. If you haven’t heard of Brass Razoo before, it’s one of those shops that has releases twice a year and sells out in like 20 minutes!!! So this mama was happy to be able to FINALLY score a few pieces, some people try for years and never get a thing!!! :/
I have a new resolution to these posts for this year, for every Mommy + me post, I will also share a little story about something Mom related that I am going through. It could be a success or something I’m struggling with, either way, I would love your feedback or comments on it and let me know if you want me to keep posting these little conversations here!

For this week’s Mom related talk, let’s talk about SLEEP. I posted over on Instagram but our kids are not the best sleepers. Our bedtime routine with 2 kids takes 2 hours and my husband and I barely have time to ourselves at night, or else I find myself staying up until 2-3AM doing stuff, no joke. With my 4 year old son, we did do CIO and sleep trained him around 9 months and everything was great. His schedule has been good and bad, it varies like every 6 months. Currently he starts his routine at 8PM… brush teeth, bath, books, talk about his day, songs and we leave. But he gets out of his bed or wants us to stay by the door until he is asleep. It’s tiring and NOT productive…
Our daughter (who is now 15 months), before I had her, I swore that I would put her down awake and let her fall asleep on her own from an early age. We tried that, didn’t work, she would always fall asleep at the bottle or breast and no chance of putting her down awake. Before our current vacation that we are taking, we would put her down asleep around 8:30PM and she would wake up around 12-1AM, and me and my husband would alternate going into sleep with her on the bed in her room. Mostly we did this in fear that her crying would wake up her brother. And now we are on vacation, we are just straight up co-sleeping with her since she is not used to this “new place”. BUT, I am determined to sleep train her once we get back.. with CIO or Ferber method, one of them will have to do. So… wish me luck, and let me know what you did, I want to know!!!

Happy 2016! Whoa..I got most clicked?! Yay…. 🙂 Thanks for the feature. You and Vivian always have the cutest mommy and me outfits, her romper is super adorable.
Your daughter is such a cutie, and I totally hear you on sleep challenges. My three kids were never good sleepers when they were babies up until their late toddler years. It’s tough on the moms. I still find myself stay up late to get my stuff done after they go to bed haha, it became a habit. 🙂 Have a wonderful Tuesday. XOXO, Elif
Always the cutest mommy & baby outfits!
Thank you for hosting and hope you are having a fab week!

Good luck on the sleep thing! It’s all foreign to me, but from what I have seen so unique to each kid and difficult. I love your turtleneck. Like you said, perfect layering piece. Her romper is so cute!

You both look so adorable! Vivian’s outfit is just so awesome!
I’m loving the stripes with the chunky knit, another great Mommy and Me look! Also loving the mom talk! I got lucky with two great sleepers. I did the CIO method. It took about two weeks but my boys go right to bed and have been sleeping through the night since they were six months. Good luck!
Love the stripes and color of that cardigan. Your daughter’s outfit is super cute too! Thanks for hosting this linkup!
Both you and Vivian look great! I loveee big comfy cardigans. I think sharing stories of your experience as a mom is a great idea. While I can’t sympathize yet, I certainly hope things start looking up for you soon in terms of her sleep!
First of all, I love this gorgeous casual look–the stripes, the necklace, the burgundy sweater, I love it all! I also love that you’ll be sharing a mom-related story in your mommy + me posts, I love to hear more about your thoughts on motherhood!! I wish I had words of wisdom for you on sleep–Jona’s had his moments but it’s a lot easier to manage with just one so far! I’ll be curious to hear what ends up working for you. Good luck!!
Wonderful photography, as usual! That adorable headband totally makes the little one’s outfit! Happy New Year!
Happy New Year Sandy!
