As I was thinking last night about what I want write my blog post on for today, Claire woke up screaming. Occasionally she will do that whether it is from a nightmare or she is upset and confused from waking up suddenly we aren't sure. Normally we wait to see if she can put herself back to sleep, but I knew that wasn't going to happen this time so I went in to comfort her.
Although we have a bedtime routine to help her go to sleep faster and put herself to sleep (which she is very good at). I just couldn't find it in myself to put her down after a few moments. We rocked and eventually she fell asleep in my arms. I can't remember the last time that happened. I am so glad I took the time to just sit with her. Claire isn't very cuddly at this stage and is constantly on the move, but she just laid there while we rocked. Sometimes I don't take time to enjoy these little moments, but they are what life is all about. God, I love that little girl and will try to take her reminder to heart!

Onto a far less serious topic: my outfit. Kim blogged about her grey skinnies a while ago and I must say I was inclined to agree with her. I am not sure why, but I find them difficult to style. Maybe it is because I feel like they make an outfit much more dreary than a different color pair of bottoms would. Who knows (because I sure don't). I challenged myself to wear them more often and think of more outfits. I even pinned a few outfits on my style board specifically for grey pants inspiration. I really like how this outfit turned out with lighter colors on top and with my shoes. What are your thoughts?
