Happy Friday my gorgeous friends!

I hope you all had a great week and are ready to enjoy the long holiday weekend! I don't remember the last time Christmas fell on a Monday, giving us a 3 day weekend, so I'm pretty excited! Today's outfit is one that I hope inspires you, particularly if you want to get a bit dressed up for the holiday and add some slight festive touches. I totally get that going all out with red or green may not be everyone's cup of tea, but that doesn't necessarily mean the desire to be festive isn't there. The easiest way I feel to add a nice festive touch is with your accessories. I opted for a check blanket scarf that has some red in it, but you can also go for a red beanie or pair of shoes. If you're not feeling those ideas, you can always go for a red lip, which has a festive vibe this time of year.

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

I hope you're all having a great week so far! So, to give you a little update on Aviah's sleep training, these past couple of nights, she's been sleeping in her crib at night! This is a huge victory for us because like I mentioned on Monday, it's been such an arduous task to sleep train her. With much persistence and consistency, we're making strides, what a sigh of relief! It was really getting to met that she wasn't sleeping as much as she should be before, so I feel so alleviated that she's catching up on much needed rest! A huge thank you to all of your words of encouragement, you're all awesome!

Happy Monday my gorgeous friends!

I hope you all had a great weekend! As mentioned in my previous post last week, I have been working really hard on sleep training Aviah. It was real tough the first few days, but as I persisted in spite of all the crying, we've been making some huge improvements! We've decided to start the process of gradually, so I've been focusing on having her sleep in her crib during her daytime naps first. Prior to her napping in her crib, she'd nap in one of her swings we have set up in our living room. When she was a newborn, she'd be able to sleep for hours in it with no problem. Now, as she's gotten bigger and is more alert and attentive, any little noise wakes her, which has been causing her to get less sleep during the day. So, I figured it was time to transition her into her room. I mean, we did purchase a gorgeous crib for her, so she should be sleeping in it, right? Lol.
