I've been thinking about transitions a lot lately. Having a baby will do that to a person! After 9 long months, baby Sylvie Dalia transitioned to the outside world, increasing our family head count by 50% and increasing the love exponentially. 'Tis the season of transition: summer is transitioning to autumn, and Aaron and I are transitioning to parenthood (although transition tends to imply a period of time in which one is able to make adjustments; parenthood is quite the opposite...suddenly this little tiny baby's life is thrust into your hands, immediately after a long labor and no sleep!).

I've been thinking about this post for quite some time, but actually finding time to clean up and dress up in the presence of another person (to take photos) has presented itself to be an incredible challenge! I found myself changing a poopy diaper in this white dress right before we shot a few photos...luckily, I (believe) I came out of it unscathed. You'll also notice that we were only able to go as far as my doorstep to take pictures--couldn't leave the bambina on her own! 

I've done a summer-to-fall outfit transition using the same centerpiece (white dress). Though I love colors and patterns, it's nice to have a few neutral pieces in my wardrobe to play with.

I'm learning to dress my post-baby body; please be forgiving, folks! I hope you all are doing well and I cannot tell you how happy I am to be back in the blogosphere!
