Today’s feature is the gorgeous and glamorous Nicole of Nicole’s Guide to Style and her equally gorgeous brand new little peanut!
Hudson Duke, 4 weeks old and counting (born January 2, 2013)
nicknames; Hudson Boy, Sweetie Pie, Zoolander and The Rock (my Poppy’s nn for me).
favorite toy; My cat, Nala Riggins, and the Cloud B Sleep Giraffe + Sheep.
what I like to do; Eat, sleep, repeat! I also like to make a lot of noise, especially in the night.
what everyone likes best about me: My hair (I was born with all of it!)… Mom likes to style it in a fauxhawk.
other favorite; Little Hip Squeaks hats, having my picture taken, Dr. Brown’s bottles and my Avent pacifier.
best thing about parenting; Being responsible for someone else’s well being and the unconditional love you feel for them. I love waking up to his sweet face everyday (and night) and watching him change from day to day.
hardest part of parenting; Learning how to find balance in your new life and figuring out how to manage your time in a productive way.
advice for other parents; I’m definitely still learning but I think it’s important to go with your gut, Mom and Dad know what’s best for their baby. Also, take pictures everyday, they change too quickly!
favorite item from the LHS shop; We love our hats and blankies from LHS but are looking forward to getting some of the infamous mustache leggings!
Mama & Baby style philosophy; I think it’s important to dress like “your old self” to some extent and take a little time to feel put together each day. Dressing Hudson has been so much fun, it’s like playing dress up everyday! Working in fashion, I like his outfits to coordinate with his accessories for the day (hat, blanket, socks, etc) and I love finding new, up and coming baby lines for him to wear. We love Little Hip Squeaks!
