The year is almost coming to a close and it’s about to be 2018! These past few months were filled with so many fun firsts for Elle. Today I’m sharing all about what we have been up to this past month. There was lots of festive events and celebrating with family and friends. For more photos + fun, make sure to follow along on Instagram.

So let’s get to it…

We kicked off the month celebrating Elle’s first birthday! After lots of planning, the party was perfect! You can see more photos and read all about the details in this post.

Elle is obsessed with this Broadway & Me music class. It is totally our favorite baby class in Chicago! Last week they performed The Grinch who Stole Christmas. Also you can shop Elle’s faux fur collared sweater here.


Whenever I have bananas to use up, I make this chocolate chip banana bread recipe. Super easy recipe and Elle’s favorite!


Isn’t this rocking horse so cute? Elle got it as a gift from her aunt, uncle, and cousins.


Checked out the new Riley Rose store at Water Tower Place. They have such cute stuff and so many great gifts!


Matching pajama party with the cousins!

    Aww, happy birthday to Elle! She’s such a cutie 🙂 You’re reminding me that I need to make some banana bread–I have some bananas in the freezer I need to use.
