    I’m so excited to finally share my first real home tour post, starting with my absolute favorite room in our home: the living room. It’s been a dream come true to move in to our new home – it was such a perfect blank canvas with lots of charm and amazing original features, like brass sconces and a fabulous white mantle (and that perfect shade of white paint on the walls was already there too.) Our living room is now home to most of my favorite things and my most enjoyable family moments: from cuddling up to watch an afternoon cartoon to having family dance parties. It’s just a room that’s full of life and makes me so happy.

    The room gets the most amazing light thanks to a huge bay window, so I decided to keep the walls white and clean. I added pops of color and played with patterns and textures to make the room warm and happy. Everything on display is very personal and meaningful. The gallery wall holds our wedding polaroid collage from all of our guests, my grandmother’s needlepoint, watercolors collected during our travels (especially from all over Italy & NYC), and photographs of Paris and Italy, where we honeymooned. And wedding and family photos, of course.

    The built-ins are one of my favorite features and hold most of my treasures, like old books, my collections of bottles and mason jars, vintage pottery, and family photos. The mantle has a mix of my favorite modern finds from etsy artists and my special vintage collections: vintage insulators and mason jars (which I collect because they remind me of my dad, who was an excavator and would find them during digs at work and bring them home to me when I was little) and my grandmother’s brass candlesticks.

    And if you loved those photographs of Paris as much as I do you’ll love tomorrow’s giveaway from Hazelnut Photography, the lady responsible for both the photos of Paris in my living room and the gorgeous photos of my living room itself. You can win your choice of her Paris prints from her print shop Wandering Through. So come back tomorrow to enter.

    •  Happy 4 months my chubby bunny! It's crazy to think that 8 years ago today your pops asked me to marry him and now here you are already 4 months old. You are happy and smiling 90% of the time and still screamy 10% of the time. Much better, but your unpredictable screaminess still pops up at the times when I'm trying to get out of the house or eat, usually both at once. I can take a hint. You are 17 lbs and almost 26 inches - putting you in the 90th % for height and 80th for weight. Oh, and your head is in the 94th % - which I'm fine with since it was a nice slightly below average size when you were born. You are hilariously huge  Your daddy says if you keep growing like this people are going to start calling you Hodor You have rolled from belly to back a few times (a small miracle given your size and how little floor time you've been able to have due to your reflux), scoot yourself with your feet when laying on your back, have reached for and grabbed a toy, and are a chatterbox. You like music, like being held in sitting and standing positions, and really wanna eat your hands. You are a champion napper -- usually taking a 2-3 hr one in the morning and a good afternoon one as well. I can even put you down without soothing you to sleep first and you fall asleep on your own - something that your brothers didn't do until at least 6 months old. You're sleeping from around 7:30 pm - 7 am, waking around 3:30 for a snack (you're totally not hungry either, you just miss me). You're just the cutest with your fat rolls and cheek dimps and duck fluff hair and big gummy smiles and you have everyone of us completely smitten.  #quincysmonthbymonth  We didn't remember to take his 4 month photos today (we'll just pretend the 26th is tomorrow ) but we did manage a photo for #rednoseday. Don't forget to donate! @rednosedayusa ❣#doitforthekids
       Temporary post: I'm looking for the cutest non tacky apparel for moms and littles for 4th of July themed blog post. If you have something super cute and available online, shoot me an email to chandra@ohlovelyday.com with subject line "July 4th apparel" and a photo (flat lay preferable but on model ok) at least 600 pixels wide, price, and link to item. I'll choose a variety of my favorite 15 and will email you if yours was chosen. And tag a shop if you have seen something cute that I should check out. TIA (these cute swim shorts are by @trendybubs btw )  Talking about embracing our postpartum bodies on the blog today with photos from my shoot with @sollybabywrap when I was 10 days postpartum. Let's start a movement of embracing our real postpartum mom bods - haven't we earned it after pregnancy, labor, delivery, sleep deprivation, nursing, and everything else we put our bodies through? Head to the blog to read my thoughts on the subject - link in profile or ohlovelyday.com. And share your own postpartum photos proudly with #embraceyourmombod #battlefieldmotherhood  @maxwanger #quincyrhys #sollybaby
