How dapper for your little dude! Available in size 6 month to 3 year. (And would be perfect for Easter 🐣)
My two favorite guys ♡
Our little buddy turned 9 weeks old today! It's been a day of lots of extra snuggles and cuddles, because the poor little guy had his 2 month check up, shots and all... And. Those. Wimpers. Will this ever get easier on my momma heart?? 😣 I'm so grateful for modern medicine and the health it affords us, but man, I may need therapy after this one. But I don't mind the extra snuggles at all ♡
(P.S. I can't stand those little toes!!)
#TBT to the all the wounds nobody saw but that you felt. .
Join me in this “throwback.” Think about the insecurities you have harbored and where they started. The parts of our bodies that have brought quiet tears, been the center of jokes or uncomfortable comments. Stemming from childhood, kids likely pointed these parts out to you (in case you weren’t already aware of them or thought ....gasp....they weren’t a big deal). Somehow adults can also do the same??🤷🏻♀️
You’ve likely, unexplainably, carried the insecurity into adulthood and still cover it, pose against, blend it, whatever despite all the badass growth and accomplishments you have. .
Because we remember those words. .
Maybe it’s your height. Or your eyes. Or your body structure that was commented upon back in the day. I always felt this way about my nose. I became super sensitive about it (and fiercely tried to remain brave when comments surfaced about it) from the moment it became a joke. Told that the size and shape weren’t in line with the standards of beauty, I felt like it entered the room before I even did. I ignored it, but was always ready for another comment. .
But you know what? I’m on a journey to embrace ALL of me and coming to a point where I am seeing the positive side of all the parts that may have been criticized or mocked (by others or even myself) in the past. I stepped back & realized this is the face my husband fell in love with 19 years ago. This is the first face my son saw in this world & the one he kisses goodnight. It’s the face that has seen the obstacles and triumphs in my life & I’m learning to love her more. 🙌🏻🙌🏻
You. Are. Beautiful. You are important. Your worth is not determined by the words of your past, but rather the actions of your present day. And I urge you to take action to LOVE YOURSELF MORE❤️❤️ .
I don’t think the parts of us are the problem, rather I think it’s the words from the people in our past. Let it goooooo and see all that you ARE!! The people in your life today could name 100 beautiful things about you — don’t you deserve to name the same about yourself? TELL ME in the comments what you are learning to love about you 😘😘😘
R had her last dance class tonight at @danceacademyofsr thank you Ms. Marissa for your guidance, fun spirit and inspiration. Guys, I’M NOT READY FOR ALL THIS!!! 😭😭😭
February 22, 2018: the day of “Uh Oh.” She said it to me all day, and sometimes the context was right. Naturally, we listened to “Crazy in Love” so she could sing “uh oh” to her heart’s content! 🤣💃
Can she stay this age forever??
Sadly I know the answer to that. But I’m so thankful for the Internet to connect/share/learn and for Young Living, which empowers me to stay at home with her and still contribute to my family’s income. And as always, I’m thankful to all of you for your friendship and following along as I/we figure this mama thing out. 😊
F I V E M O N T H S • Teagan talks and yells A LOT. • Her hair is so long it falls down now 😭 • Likes to blow raspberries. • Loves when Kuya Emerson talks to her. • Ticklish • Bad at napping. • Hates poopy diapers. • Prefers standing and jumping. • Does not stop rolling (hence picture #2). • Very petite: still fits some 0-3 month clothes.
Eeek the cutest teether ever just arrived on my doorstep! 😍 @littlepineandco have released a new range of items and colours including this beautiful golden colour which I am in love with! Go and check them out if you aren't already following, you won't regret it!!
after a little morning rain, this afternoon it’s all sunshine and rainbows (with a 99.9% chance of puddle jumping) ☔️🌤🌈😍
Nike had it right with their slogan. [Don't over think] 🌟➡just do it
Regrann from @quoteslift - Start walking! Doing things make us feel good... Overthinking stresses us.
Most days and moments feel a bit like a marathon and today has been no exception except for the past 20 minutes when ALL three kiddos have been sleeping at the same time!! This feels a bit like the beer garden at the end of the marathon 👊🏼 I’ve finally been updating my website and found this gem from last summer ❤️
we’re those annoying people in SoCal that get REALLY excited for cool weather so we can actually layer👌🏼😂. (and yes, I know he has one sock on. this is why he usually has bare feet because he kicks everything off!)
I’m currently sitting at the DMV, not my bed, finally taking care of one of those things I mentioned procrastinating about in my stories yesterday. 💪🏽✨ Note to self: next time, just book the next available appointment instead of thinking it’ll take less time if I walk in. (I blame the baby brain) 😂😂 thankfully I have a bunch of podcast episodes on my phone to help pass the time!
My favorite place on earth. 💙 Cloudy and cold today but loving the extra snuggles with this cutie. God has been so very gracious to give us this precious boy. We prayed, we cried, HE answered! Fussiness and all I wouldn’t trade this baby for anything! And when he smiles it melts everything else away... I’m so thankful! #forthischildweprayed#GodisagoodFather#joyfulmamas#theblessedlittlewifey
This beauty is one of the starter kits that gets you your own membership to order what and when you want from the only place we get our household items, toiletries, baby products, and my makeup, as well as the purest essential oils out there. If you’d like to get your membership with this kit or any of the other kits, including makeup, I’ll send $15 back to the first person who signs up with the link in my bio. Today only!
Here’s the thing about oils: you have to be consistent to see the results you want. Just the same as working out/eating good - it takes more than one day to see the benefits. Stick with using oils and you’ll be so glad you did 🌿 #plantpower
We just love these from @darling . Tag someone below who exemplifies this in your life 😘
It is amazing the things our brains choose to remember + what it chooses to “forget”. I will never forget the birth of each of my girls. Their sweet, swollen faces as they were placed on my chest.
Ariya gave us a run for our money. Weeks of prodromal labor + two “false” alarms.. Her birth story is one that will be embedded in my brain for years to come. Her + I worked so hard to have a completely unmedicated birth but that just wasn’t in God’s plans.
I will be posting her birth story on the blog super soon. Please bear with me, as baby girl is just a week old today + I’m still adjusting to being a momma of 3.
I’ve got a wine in my hand and a baby on my hip #momlife
Let’s be real. I wanted a cute shot of her today but this more accurately shows our morning. What is she throwing a fit about? Oh not being able to play outside. Sorry Lyla we got another snow day! But this time it’s ice and that’s not really something we can play in 😬
“If there's love in a house it's a palace for sure.” (Tom Waits)
We live pretty small, saving for our future home and we’re typically all squished together, usually in one area. It’s the happiest and most content time in our whole family. I know that I’ll look back on this season in our little treehouse and have some of the very best memories to look back on. #sosothankful
Hey YOU! You’re incredibly special and irreplaceable and worth more than you know. We promise.
Happy Thursday! ‘Call Your Mother’ and ‘Strong as a Woman’ Tees 💕
Baby bump + oils 😉 For all my praying friends, yoga pals, + meditators — frankincense is the ultimate calming + grounding oil. Most people know of it as the one given to baby Jesus in scripture. This stuff is powerful friends! + I love that God gave it to us in nature for such amazing support. Who’s heard of or used frankincense before ?!?
Apparently this is the place to be...rocking out to some alphabet tunes on her @vtechtoys "computer" 😁🌟
