How did you get so big?

It’s a question I ask the kiddos all the time – how did you get SO big? No, but really? I thought it yesterday when Teagan was walking in front of me – seeing how her stride was longer than I remember, because her legs are getting so long and thin now. We’re convinced Gwen grew about an inch one night last week when she demanded to go to bed at 6:00 pm: (um, ok!) “I’m exhausted.” Hudson is a whirling dervish right now, and it’s only when that little human is looking back at me in one of my images that I really get a good look at him. Today was one of those days.

Today we sported super-comfy organic cotton creations from Spiritex, locally made in Asheville, NC. Miss Tea is SUPER picky (hideous understatement as I’m having flashbacks of her thrashing on her bedroom floor, accusing pants of “choking” her legs.”) about her clothing and fits and feels, and I’m 100% happy to report that she was delighted with her Heart’s in My Pocket tunic and Little Leggins. Hint, hint, Valentine’s Day is coming!

Ok, Who’s this KID looking at me? Where’s my baby boy? Why can I picture him at 10 here, not nearly 3? When I ask Hudson how he got “so big” his answer is always the same: “Because I IS.” I can’t go grammar-psycho on him. Just can’t. You keep on with your subject-verb agreement error. It’s way cute. Watch out, pre-k girls, watch out. Stud-muffin is donning his Explorer Hoodie and pants. Uber cozy for a freeeezing cold (insert frozen face emoticon) NJ winter day. PS – He likes warm hugs.





Spiritex Butterfly Dress

Looking for a unique, 100% green option to add to your daughter’s wardrobe? ML Marsh, owner and creative director of Spiritex, based in Asheville, NC, brings more gorgeous design to her children’s line with her monarch butterfly dress. Made of recycled PET blend from recycled plastic bottles and locally grown and in the US, Marsh took inspiration from the beauty of nature and vibrant monarch butterfly wings.


I’m loving the bold oranges contrasting with the strong blacks and whites in this dress that stand out as original compared to the usual pinks, purples and pastels that most girls’ clothing lines carry. Feminine and whimsical with soft lines from the petal-shaped cut on the dress hem, Spiritex’s butterfly dress can also roll down and be worn as a skirt when your daughter outgrows it!

You can find this imaginative piece here , and it’s available in sizes 2T, 3T, 4T, and girls 6 and 8 for $75. Allow 2 weeks for delivery due to the unique nature of this item.
