Mommy + Me Outfits | Faux Fur Vests and Boots






I feel like I post a picture with my kids that looks staged and posed, pretty often, for how crazy they actually act while we try to take pictures. I mean, they're actually some kind of circus act while there's a camera in front of them. I honestly don't know what made me think doing a "Mommy and me" look would be a good idea, but I could not resist, once Lorelai and I had these matching vests! My vest is from Chicwish, and I'm obsessed! Lorelai was not into taking these pictures, but I somehow managed to snag a few with her in the frame, so it is what it is! haha And, I love them anyway! Because I love this girl, and she's the cutest, even if our pictures are crooked and blurry! 

Shop My Look:



I've never talked about this publicly, because I do try to keep my kids lives pretty private on the internet, but Lorelai had a speech delay for much of her life, and is just now starting to talk in sentences. (I feel like I can share it now, because I feel confident that with the intervention she's received she'll be completely "caught-up" to her peers, soon.) It's been one of the hardest challenges on my life, to have a child with a disability. You might think that a language delay doesn't sound like that big of a deal, but after dealing with a child who can't communicate with you through speech, it's been quite a rough road. I guess I'm just saying that I'm so grateful for early intervention within a school setting, I'm grateful for her teachers and her speech therapists, and I'm grateful to God that she's starting to talk more and more, and it looks like she will overcome her delay. And, also, if you have a child with special needs, I can relate. This is hard, and it's not for the faint of heart! You will get through, and we can both smile and be proud of the little humans our kids turn out to be, one day! Thanks for letting me share, sometimes, guys. I feel like sometimes all you see is the highlight reel, and I definitely try to keep it real around here.
Thanks so much for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
Jessica

  12. Love the mommy and me looks! It's so good that you're sharing your family struggles with your daughter's speech delay because you bring awareness to a cause that is not that uncommon, but not everyone shares their struggles with it. I used to work with kids that had development delays as a Behavior Therapist for 9 years, and it was the most rewarding experience. I worked along side speech therapists as well, and know that it can take tons of intervention before you begin to see results. Every accomplishment is a huge win, keep up the hard work you do daily with her, it will all pay off as I'm sure you know!

  15. You both look so cute in your outfits! It's always fun trying to get pics with kids - my two never sit still for photos but they always want to see the result after I take it, so I know they enjoy the process, haha! Even if they do end up as blurs in most of the pics!

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope that you are having a great start to your week :) I've posted my weekday wear linkup, I'd love you to join! :)

  23. Your Lorelai is beautiful, Jessica. I'm so happy to hear she's getting better. It is very courageous of you to share that with us. My best friend's twins were born with autism and with early intervention, one is no longer considered autistic. However, it was over a decade of hard work every single day for her to get to this point. So, the struggle is real and I commend you and your husband for never giving up and making sure Lorelai always has the resources and love to help her persevere through this. :) Love this mommy and me shoot too. You two look so cute! :)
