Lucky little Wren!

Today my Mom hosted a Valentines open house for all our friends and family to meet Wren. It was so wonderful and my Mom did an awesome job with all the food and decor! It was very exciting because Wren got to wear her first dress (which was still a little big, and she wore a shirt and pants under it to keep warm). I told everyone that we do not need anything, we just want to introduce her to everyone, but sure enough we were bombarded by hoards of gifts. The best part was that they were all very thoughtful and heartfelt gifts, which are always the best kind! My favorite part of the day was getting pictures of her with her Great Grandma, who I call the Baby Whisperer. In this shot Wren is being held by her Great Grandma, and her Grandpa is on the far left and her Grandma is on the far right (both in black).
Looks like Wren already has an Easter outfit thanks to her Great Aunt Colleen!

This little guy was freakin adorable!!! His name is Ratos and I am now obsessed with the Deglingos line of stuffed animals, they are hilarious looking (
By the end of the day someone was ready for a nap on her Great Aunt Vicky's shoulder!

I stumbled across your blog somehow and remember you from the Nest. (I'm ChiOcutie). Hello, again :)
First of all, congrats on your baby girl - she's beautiful! And the new always had such amazing style and your new house is just as gorgeous as the one I remember.
I was curious about your wood floors. DH and I have been planning on ripping out our carpet and installing hardwood and wondered if I could pick your brain. Where did you get your wood? How hard was it to DIY?
If you don't mind dropping me an email,, I'd appreciate it!

Looks like a fun time - how special for you guys. Wren is growing fast. What a sweetie. You'll have to start a "what wren wore" so you can brag about her darling outfits and cute accessories. That rat is darling! :)

Every baby needs a party - it's the start of knowing how loved they are. Your daughter is adorable.
PS - I love your headboard! Thanks for the tutorial.

I found your blog this week, and as a newly-wed student on a budget, who is currently unpacking her own new place, I'm having fun reading through your blog for inspiration. (I already commented once, asking about the dew-drop chandelier in your old bedroom).
Anyway, new it weird to ask how you did your hair in these pictures? It looks so pretty, whispy, and romantic! I'm always trying to figure out how to get my longish hair up into something cute like that.
