Chasing Davies: Pretending it is Spring!

Pretending it is Spring!

We are so ready for spring over here - definitely have the case of cabin fever with these still well-below freezing temps (and worse - horrid wind!).  But we had a day (still stuck inside) dreaming of spring this past weekend, trying on some fresh new clothes from Gymboree! Sometimes, you just have to turn up the heat and put on short sleeves.  And for a bit, it actually felt like maybe spring was here - at least the kids looked like it!

I even let Liam jump on the downstairs couch - who has boundless energy.  Both kids are still wearing their activity trackers, so they are really working on getting their goal steps and activity minutes. If they do, they get to play a special game within the parent's app, so it's a big deal. ;) And they might be a little competitive between each other, too.  Besides jumping all over the place - he is still very into legos, so thankfully that has gotten us through winer.

Liam is very specific about the waistbands on any bottoms he wears. He doesn't like them to feel too big (always worried they are going to fall down!  I do know have that same problem...), so his favorite are pull on with drawstring ties - and bonus if the waistband is soft. He loves these chino pull-on shorts, it was hard to get him to change out of them to put on pants when we did finally have to leave the house and out into the cold.

Nora has really taken up singing and, really, any kind of performing - sometimes one-actress monologue type episodes.  She loves picking out her own outfits to go along with her staring personality - and comfort is her first priority. Leggings have always been a go to for her so she can still move around, like kicking her legs up (constantly), and feel comfortable no matter what.  So, I love when I can find a really cute prints on leggings for a win-win for us both! These floral ones are perfect for spring, and the Smile tee was the perfect top for her performance of a many silly "smiley" faces!

These slip on sneakers for both the kids are a parent's dream, by the way. They just slip them on and go - so easy! Not fussing with ties and even velcro. And I love all the designs how cute they are. Kids are starting to wear these already - I had to give them something! - and they love them!  Nora's metallic ones here and Liam's paint splatter ones here!

How are you all staying creative at the end of this cold winer and/or getting read for spring?  Whatever you guys are doing, you'll love (but more importantly, your kids will love) the new Gymboree Spring collection! #followyourart
