We made the leap and got ourselves an annual pass to the San Francisco Zoo. Its ten minutes from our home, has an amazing playground, and paid for itself in two visits (so we couldn’t go wrong!).

I’ll just go ahead and warn you now, its most likely you will be seeing a lot of images from the zoo, so prepare yourself now…

Also, please check out my guest post over at Dani + Lola. Berlin and I did a little style post in our skinny jeans & hi-tops.

While you’re there, please stay and check out Dani’s blog; she has a real sense of style and her daughter’s adorable.

Berlin turned eleven months a few days ago, its unbelievable that she is almost a year old already!  It’s funny, but in my mind I pictured her running around, talking, and {basically} being a little adult all by the age of one.  I guess this is reality for some one year olds, but for my little Berlin this is not so true.

She is still resisting the whole crawling thing.  She scoots on her booty and pushes herself around backwards while on her belly, but refuses to get up on all fours.  She recently learned to sit herself up while in crawl position by hunching on her back legs like a frog and sitting back up. She does this every time I put her on her belly, basically refusing to crawl.  Let’s just call her stubborn.

In other news, Berlin (finally) got her first tooth last week-woot woot!  She was a bit fussy and would do this weird moan during the middle of the night (poor thing), but all in all she was a trooper.  Now only 19 more to go!

BTW-Zara is having their end of season sale right now, so if you love their baby clothes like I do, get on over!

How We Wear It: Jenna and Anika

I’m happy to introduce my guest mama this month; Jenna and her sweet daughter Anika

JennaAnika.7

What’s keeping you busy lately?

We are moving to New York in a few weeks, and have a lot to accomplish before we leave. Packing has been a great way to really reassess the things we are carrying around with us. It is so refreshing to give away as much as we can and downsize, we are only keeping the things we need and love. We will miss San Francisco and all the amazing people we have met here. We look forward to our next adventure…raising a toddler in New York City!

What’s the latest with your little one?

Anika is on the verge of walking, she is full of energy and loves to talk! The best part of my day is when I walk through the door and see her smiling face, she is old enough now to bounce up and down and say “Mama, Mama”! It is just the best.

What do you wish you could accomplish that you never seem to get done?

Yoga. I really miss it and hope to start practicing again-as soon as I clear away the boxes and have some floor space! I also wish I spent more time cooking healthy meals for my family. There was a time, that feels too long ago, when I explored Indian cooking, joined a CSA and experimented with new veggies and really switched up our menu. Things have become much more simplified, quick, and a bit boring to say the least. Anika and I don’t eat meat, so we are a bit limited and need some creative thinking to keep things exciting. The new challenge is to make fresh, healthy meals become fast and simple. There must be a way!!

How would you describe your fashion style?  Would you say it differs from pre-baby?

Not really. I have always admired women who exude a strong and unique sense of style. I tend not to be so exciting. My personal style has had many many incarnations, when I was pregnant I pretty much lived in black leggings, black tops, and combat boots. If I had to describe my style, I would say classic (read: black basics) with a boho, vintage, or feminine twist depending on my mood.

Is Motherhood what you thought it would be?

Motherhood is incredible. I so completely adore my daughter, and enjoy her more and more every day…I now understand why my friends have said that motherhood just gets better and better. Getting to know this little girl is so much fun! I have been so lucky to have an amazing husband to help care for her while I am at the office, it has been a balancing act that I could never have done without him!

I had the pleasure of working with Jenna at my last company.  She is a joy to be around, always wearing a great big smile and possessing a great attitude.

I’ll be sad to see her leave San Francisco, but she is on to great things and I’m so very happy for her!  Congrats on the new job and big move Jenna, we will miss you guys much!

I was able to convince Ryan to indulge me in “daddy style” posts.  I bribed him by allowing him to dress Berlin in whatever he wants.  So get ready for some interesting (but awesome) outfits!

I couldn’t reist adding this last one, just too cute!

On Sunday I decided to take on way too much. For some reason I think I’m Supermom and try to juggle five things at once. Not only did I want to take photos that day, but I also decided simultaneously to have friends and family over for a BBQ. So I was cleaning, preparing the food, and racing to get everything done before Berlin’s insanely early bedtime of 6:30 PM.  Sadly the only door to our back patio is through Berlin’s room, so all had to be wrapped up before the witching hour. I will proudly say I accomplished it all, but it was not without stress and some running around (and I only partly completed my outfit-but that’s how moms roll!). But it was all worth it in the end because I got some adorable shots of Berlin-she is such the perfect subject.
