Getting dressed has become a whole different challenge since Athena came along. I'm no longer in pencil skirts and button-downs like I was for work back in Chicago and I'm not in as many dresses like I was when I was pregnant because most aren't nursing or winter friendly. I also am dealing with the dreaded baby weight too (but more on that later) so many of my old clothes don't even fit anymore. So now I'm getting creative with my wardrobe. I've found that the legging and long cardigan combo is great for both nursing and winter. Luckily I was well stocked with my favorite leggings of all time, but have been stocking up on tons of long cardigans. I had my eye on this one but I knew I didn't really need it since my collection is getting pretty big. But then it went on sale for $12 (shipping included!) and I just had to get it.
Even with all the wardrobe frustration, this winter has been the most fun of my life because Athena has been around to share in it! I'm sure that will only get better as she gets older and can really enjoy all the fun, cold-weather activities Utah has to offer.
We try to get her outside at least once a day for a walk of a hike. Most weekends we drive up to one of the Canyons and do a small hike. We want her to appreciate what a beautiful place she lives in and love the outdoors and winter like we do, so we are starting her young. Very young.
