Little Bear has his first cold :( but it was the perfect opportunity to try out our @jjcoleusa shopping cart cover while we picked up some soothing vapour bubble bath & cough drops for mom. Not spreading our germs and not catching anymore!
Superhero Teddy- keeping the streets of Savannah safe and fighting bad guys. Two-year-old boys. They are at once magical and impossible. Sweet and terrifying. Snuggly and energetic. I grew up with 5 sisters and no brothers, so I had no idea what to expect when I found out my second child was a boy. Being a mom to a little boy has been one of the most amazing and exhausting experiences of my life. I look at him eating his breakfast cereal with chubby hands and milk dribbling down his chin and I can’t help but see him as a six-foot-tall football player eating me out of house and home. So I’m treasuring this chapter in our lives. This season where he still clings to my legs in public and asks, “Mommy, carry you?” Where he tells me every day how he was scared of the kids in the masks at Halloween. Soon enough he’ll be towering over me...but for now I get to soak up the snuggles.
My sweet girl.

Her Story | I wake, you are still tucked into the folds of your blanket. I put a kettle on, to make tea, for you and me. You walk into the kitchen. You look older. Every morning I see you, I feel you’ve grown a little older. You wear a frown and wrinkles on your face. You clamber on the couch and face the morning light.... The light is subtle, your frown is fading slowly, replaced by wonder of new day... .

I’m half mom half snowman. Holy moly do I miss the 🌵 and heat of Arizona. I bought the #oakesmonster a @polaroid camera for his birthday and gave it to him early so he could take pictures during this trip. However, I forgot to grab the film 🤦🏻♀️. Major mom fail. Anyone else just fail sometimes? Just me? Bueller? Headed out in the cold to Best Buy to snag that film now. Brb while I explain to my child another lesson in patience.
Hand-crafted with love and with great attention to detail, we're just getting so excited for everyone to meet our slings!

Thinking back to only 2 weeks ago when the sun was shining so brightly on us in Valencia! The season is quickly catching up to where it should be and it's getting cold and dark ☁️🌚. But I have to say, it's nice to use a cozy blanket and wear a jacket! Aaaaaaand, the cold gets me so excited for Christmas in 🇨🇦 with family and friends!! Can't believe we only have 4 weeks left in Spain! 🙀

I've always loved gifting books, but now that I have kids I am even more into it. They don't take up a ton of space, it's pretty easy to guess a general genre of book that a kid will enjoy, and we can always use something new to work into the bedtime rotation because if I have to read Big Red Barn one more time... • This is part of the stash of @usborne_books that arrived this year for holiday gifts, purchased through my friend Natasha. When our babies were just around a month old, @nat owl and I met first at a breastfeeding support group and then a few weeks later found that we had joined the same moms' group. We met during what seemed like a never ending phase of no sleep, all day feedings, and wondering if we'd ever be ourselves again. And here we are nearly three years later, busy moms and business owners. This summer Natasha moved back to her hometown to start her own preschool (long term dream accomplished! ) and has her book side hustle as well. • This is my second post in a series of Friday posts leading up to the holidays where I am sharing mom friends of mine who have businesses. To see the others --> #bethtalksdirectsales I love seeing moms support other moms, so if you need anything they might be offering, links to each of their businesses will be in my link tree (in profile ) though the holidays. And to be clear, I'm not receiving anything in exchange other than possibly some good karma.

I know I harp on this message CONSTANTLY but it is because I know that everyday you are under attack - there is a voice that says you aren't smart enough, pretty enough, a good enough mother, friend, wife... I am here to tell you those are all LIES. Listen to the words of LOVE, words that tell you that you are doing your best, you are a caring mother, a thoughtful friend, a loving spouse. Let LOVE be the loudest voice. . . . #llrgretaiannuccilli #thisismotherhood #letlovebetheloudestvoice #youareenough #dontbelievethelies

Good Monday morning! What’s that? Oh it’s Friday?? Could’ve fooled me this morning! 😆 • • • I took the boys to the library for the first time... pretty sure a chorus of angels descended into that place when we left... Who’s kids are those...? 😒 (mine... they’re mine. ) It’s not like I used the entire 20 minute drive explaining about libraries and being quiet or anything 🙄 Play doh, construction paper thankful turkeys (because we all need to be reminded what we’re thankful for ) and coffee to save the morning! I also got the cutest little book about Chester Chipmunks Thanksgiving that Liam has absolutely no interest in reading! 👍🏼 Wins all around today!! 😬 • • • Ok, back to being thankful! Real quick, 5 (not so typical ) things I’m thankful for... 1. Libraries, where they hand you a card and and give you free reign in a room filled with books! 😍 2. Orange and black paint to mix so you can make a turkey body when the construction paper pack doesn’t have brown and your markers are dry and you don’t have brown paint. 3. That Sid the Science Kid isn’t on public television anymore (there’s that angel chorus again! ) 4. Coffee (ok, that was pretty typical but 🤷🏻♀️ ) 5. Sibling rivalry because at least they’re bonding and they can work out the details later! 😉 • • • If you made it to the end of this, as a reward, I’m sharing these 3 ladies that I love to follow and you will too! @saracozad @iliterallylol @malyn logic

Let’s talk postpartum depression. It can happen to anyone. At this moment I can’t even express into words the love I feel for this guy, BUT this love for him wasn’t instantaneous (it kills me to even say that ). I saw so many moms share these gushing posts about the abundance of love they had for their little babe the moment they came into the world. I didn’t experience that. Amidst the pain of a drug free labor I felt extreme fear and anxiety. I had no clue what I was doing. I pushed a lot of responsibility onto my husband and drowned in non-stop cluster feeding sessions. I pushed help aside due to fear of being judged, and thinking I could do it all. I thought to myself at times maybe I’m not meant to be a mom, what have I done 😢Through all this I internalized it all and finally broke down and opened up to my husband. I realized I needed to reach out for help both professionally and from family and I’m so happy did. - - I’m on the cuff of finishing an 8 week PPD support group. I met some amazing mommas and gained amazing tools to help me be the best mommy and wife I can be. ‼️IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING‼️ reach out for help/support. It doesn’t make you any less of a mom, in fact its quite the opposite. There’s no such thing as a “super mom,” we ALL need help. We ALL need support. YOU CAN NOT DO IT ALL! It truly does take a village. - - #postpartumdepression #postpartum #thisispostpartum #thisismotherhood #postpartumjourney #postpartumsupport #postpartumanxiety

We’ve been exploring in the backyard a lot lately and Naima is learning that sometimes it’s best not to touch certain animals, to just enjoy their beauty with our eyes and let them be 🐞
It rained on and off driving through Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. All throughout the drive we marveled at how bright the yellow leaves looked against the evergreens. We stopped to get out and stretch at the Myrtle Beach river access hike and were rewarded with this view of the river! On a long road trip, isn't it amazing how a stop to walk around changes everyone's attitude?!
#momfuel Have you tried it yet? PM me and I would be happy to send a free sample ❤️
because i love you more than words can ever express. you are my person. we have been through some pretty amazing times, difficult times and loss and heartbreak. but i can’t imagine going through any of it with anyone else. thank you for putting up with me and all my craziness. but most importantly, always believing in me, and in us and our dreams. i can’t believe i almost forgot what today was. that’s what six months of no sleep does and babies that pretty much gave me the biggest mom brain 😜 .. happy five years of marriage love 💛
The Ugliness in Motherhood: In the days and weeks to follow the births of my children, I slept very little, I ate very little. It hurt to pee, it hurt to walk, it hurt to nurse. I could barely get out of bed, and then felt guilty for not getting out of bed. I was happy and unhappy. But I was in love. As a mother, I know well the emotional rollercoaster of learning your new identity, and I consider myself one of the lucky ones to have never suffered from postpartum depression. Baby blues, yes, but PPD, no. But this kind of depression or psychosis effects 1 in 5 women, and can be widely invisible, even to those who suffer. It can be incredibly isolating, confusing and anxiety ridden to become a mother for the first time, and we are told that the baby blues are a normal part of the hormonal fluctuations after birth. But if the baby blues are normal, yet different from ppd, where is the recognizable line to identify something more serious? And how, as fellow mothers, can we support each other instead of assuming that we’re all ok and “this too shall pass?” Follow Link in Profile for More!

Mein lieber Herr Gesangsverein, das war jetzt eine schwere Geburt. Ich habe ja vor ein paar Tagen schon erwähnt, dass ich wieder öfter und mehr Blogposts schreiben muss. ☺️ ⠀ Nicht nur weil mein Blog nach einer Radikal-Diät nur noch 3 Blogposts aufzuweisen hatte, sondern auch weil ich natürlich auf meinem Blog werdenden Mamis und Papis Hilfestellung zu allen Themen im Bereich Babybauch-Fotoshooting bieten möchte. ⠀ Also habe ich heute morgen den Blogposts geschrieben und den restlichen Tag damit verbracht den Blog und die Blogposts optisch auf Vordermann zu bringen. 😇 ⠀ Also falls du meine 7 Tipps für ein gelungenes Babybauch-Fotoshooting wissen möchtest, dann klick auf meinen Link oben in der Bio. ⠀ Happy Wochenende und einen entspannten Feierabend wünscht Dir, Steffi 🎀
It’s funny how different things go when the baby is actually here. We set up a nursery, but probably won’t even use it until she’s one. We set up the pack n play beside our bed, but she sleeps best when she’s with us. We get a cute little baby bathtub, but then realize it’s so much easier taking her in the bath/shower with us! All of this to say, things are much better than I imagined while she was still in my belly. I wouldn’t change a thing.
Guys! I just heard the most alarming statistic of my life that made me so sad! Did you know our kids age expectancy is less than ours?? That seems completely backwards with all the medical advancements that have already happened and will happen in their lifetime. It’s all about the crappy lifestyle a majority live. So to say my passion to bring health in to the home more than quadrupled when I heard that statistic is absolutely true!! I have a fire inside me, a burning desire to help families live healthier, happier, LONGER life’s! I live the lifestyle I live for my family. I work out in the home, a majority of the time when my kids are awake to set an example. I don’t hide the way I eat but encourage my kids to do the same. We all know kids are great imitators. Give them something good to imitate, set an example, help YOUR kids life expectancy to not follow the predicted outcome! . . . #letthembelittle #dailymotherhood #momlife #mamatribevibes #momunity #fitmom #runitfast #runhappy #nurselife #nightshiftnurse #fitnurse #fitfam #fitlife #strongmama #legitmomstyle #holdthemoments #thisismotherhood #momliferocks #rawmotherhood #momitforward #holdthemoments #candidmotherhood #toddlerlife #familyfirst #projectoftheday #pinterestinspired #ukfitness #ukfitfam
Alright parents lets be real here. At what age did your kids start napping and sleeping in their crib? With Jayden it NEVER happened lol He would only sleep on us or in the carrier. Kieran is doing far far more amazing with his naps in the crib so far at almost 3 months. But of course then THIS HAPPENS. Put him down asleep and i glance back 2 mins later to THIS. WIDE AWAKE. Lol What has been ur experience??
I love working out with my little next to me ❤️😍 I’m hoping she can soak up this example and grow up with a mama who is confident, self loving, and can still pour her heart into helping others 😘. **If you want to set the same example for your kiddos follow the link in my bio** I’m here to help 🤙🏻💕 • • • • • • • • • • • • #ilovebeingamom #twoundertwo #mommysbabygirl #momofgirls #mommydaughtertime #mindfulmamas #motherhoodlife #motherhoodrocks #thisismotherhood #joyfulmama #momlifebelike #nursingmama #postpartumjourney #postpartumbody #breastfeedingmom #mombod #postpartumdepression #normalizebreastfeeding #badassbreastfeeder #unconditionalove
❤️ Maybe Its because in a time where racism seems to be as violent and cruel as ever, I get to be a first hand witness to a love that is unconditional and so far beyond skin deep. Maybe its because seeing a smile on his face despite losing SO much is a true miracle. Maybe its because last night he told me and Jacob he loves us. Maybe its because I heard him whisper to God while he was praying “I love you too”. Maybe its because Im scared of what will happen if we lose them and what will happen if we dont. Maybe theres more reasons than I can even process right now. But when I see this picture and think of all the blessed memories my family is going to have because of these kids, my heart overflows with thankfulness. Thankful that God is in control and NOTHING is impossible for him. Thankful that you all have rallied with us to be the hands and feet of Jesus for these kids. Thankful for friends who I will treasure until I die because of their constant love, support, and energy theyve poured into our family. Thankful that God has blessed us with the incredible opportunity to show and receive so much love that I can hardly handle it. Im a blubbering mess but in all the good ways today. 🙌🏻
Looked up to his sweet voice saying, “mumma” to see him walking around with my tote bag 😄. CUTIE

Are you and your family traveling for the Thanksgiving Holiday next week? 🦃 Stay safe and stay hydrated inside and outside during those long travel days - keep a tube of Pleni Naturals Berry + Olive Balm in your bag for a quick dose of luxurious hand cream during those busy travel days!
he has a pretty important show tonight. @hmbsoulmusic celebrates 10 years and what an incredible milestone it is. so proud of the family they are + what they’ve accomplished over these last 10 years + all the future holds 🙌🏻 i remember when we were just kids we’d talk about the future and I’d always say I wanted a baby to keep me company when he went on tour 🙈 would love to be there tonight, but I’ll sure be in great hands ❣️ #honestmotherhood #motherhoodintheraw #maishmb #ultimadecada #viviandmelifestyle
Everything I do, they wanna do! Everything I see, they wanna see! Everything I EAT, THEY wanna eat!! So what would happen if I ate junk all day, drank soda, and ate candy? Yep! That’s what they’d do as well! Just because I am lazy for my breakfast, doesn’t mean I’m lazy for theirs. I made them hard boiled eggs with blueberries and my shake for me (no blender required! ). They ate their breakfast and asked for my shake. I basically had to make a second shake so I could actually drink some. Be the example you want them to follow!
Type YES if you agree!👍✔️ ___ Maybe I'm just an idealist, but I truly believe us mamas all want much of the same things: to be the best moms we can be to our kids, to nurture the other relationships in our lives as well as be nurtured by them, to live a full life that we truly love, and to be joyful and satisfied. It may take a village to raise children, but that village starts with cultivating our #tribe We're all in this together. 💞 Community over competition, peeps. 💯💯 #community

// Back and fourth // I haven’t posted here for a few days because I haven’t had time in between clearing up the 10th pile of sick 🤢. We all have a cold 🤧 again (= bad nights ) and little man took it to the next level by throwing up a lot. We seem to go forward then back but that is life. It feels hard right now. Probably because I’m not well either. The cold ❄️ weather has certainly hit hard. Yet, in between it all, we have fun moments like this and also lots and lots to be thankful for. I know many people have far worse to contend with...
We’re slowly adding more indoor activities to our repertoire as the weather grows colder & wetter each day...yesterday it was homemade playdough, and while it’s probably starting to dry & crumble by this morning, I got to see this kid’s wheels spinning as he squished it between his fingers & worked on molding new shapes.

Do you know who these women are? They are earth-shakers. They are in the trenches, warriors for Love. They are boo boo kissers, wise vested teachers, entrepreneurs, life coaches to Little’s, example-makers. They are problem-solvers, day-in and day-out peacemakers. They nurture, discipline, creating environments where little world changers can thrive. They let love lead, these gutsy givers. Bravery is not foreign to them. Even though they don’t know the outcome of their service, they press on mothering because they trust the one who holds the future in His hands. They balance tasks through sleep depravation, navigate the sometimes tumultuous waters of babyhood and toddlerhood and childhood. They are leaders, teachers, sisters, wives, daughters, friends. These are Moms of Preschoolers. And they are in the business of changing the world. It’s an honor to serve them. #MOPS #Moms #thisismotherhood
