All the heart eyes for this one 😍 When I got pregnant with Natalie I worried how hard it would be to have to split my time..I mean this one had me all to herself for almost 4 years! But she’s transitioned so easily into Big Sister mode and just has the biggest heart I’ve ever seen. Love you bigger than the sky Cora Addison! 😘❤️👧🏼.
PREGNANT+ ANGRY+ HUNGRY = PRANGRY Help me, I’m ALWAYS hungry 😩😩😩 I’m at the point in my pregnancy where I’m constantly starving but feel so full all the time. Now top that off with gestational diabetes and cue the “angry” part! Baby wants donuts dammit 🍩 🍩🍩🍩 HOWEVER, I am being really good and watching my glucose levels. When I’ve over done it on the carbs I just do a 20 min prenatal cardio workout and my glucose drops. So, I’m grateful I’m able to manage my GD through diet and exercise cause mama needs to indulge once in awhile 🍰🍪🍦 What’s your favorite pregnancy treat?
Before the night ends I would like y'all to help me wish a happy birthday to the realest nigga I know...My dad! Most daddies teach their daughter to run from the streets, but mine taught me how to survive in them, & I will forever be thankful. I wouldn't have made it out alive if you kept me blinded & gullible to the real world. You whooped all them lies out me & taught me to never tell one. You taught me the responsibilities of being a woman to my family, & how to take care of home. You gave me the game & showed me how niggas play hoes so that it wouldn't happen to me. You blessed me with your crazy attitude & short temper so I'm built Ford tough. Thank you for always being understandstanding & patient with me. You also taught me how to respect others & be respected. When they see me in the streets they know not to try shyt kuz I'm #DonaldDaughter & you comin head first bout me. You raised a real one daddy & ima G by blood bkuz of YOU. We don't always see eye to eye kuz we are EXACTLY just alike, but I wouldn't trade you for the world. I love you with all my heart old man. Thanks for lovin me too! Happy Birthday Big Red you're forever my favorite❗❗❗ #DaddysGirl#FirstBorn#BloodOnHim#BloodOnMe#MyHitta#MyHeart#ToughLove#RaisedMeRight
R E A L (Mom) L I F E || I’d be lying if I said the past few weeks as a new mom have been only magical and blissful. While being with my newborn daughter is nothing short of heaven, there have definitely been some very rough times. Who would’ve thought hives (allergic reaction to medication), major breastfeeding and latch issues, infant jaundice and thrush would be rolled into the first two weeks? Throw in pumping every two hours and you’ve got a pretty big load. 😞
•My husband is such a blessing and is always asking how he can help. Can you just pump for me? Can you buy me a new set of nipples that aren’t sore and cracked? (tmi)
•One day we will look back as mothers and say “wow look what we have survived”. Mamabears out there, you are strong and resilient. Even in the sleepless haze, being a mommy is the best feeling.
|⭐️SHORT STORY⭐️ |- I took this picture of my oldest son tonight. It inspired the #poem that you see next to it. He’s so much more than just these words but my heart feels like it could explode from all the #love I feel while watching him grow into the incredible human his is becoming. |⭐️LONG STORY⭐️ |- This evening I came into the living room and found my sweet Jameson sitting next to the #fire , ready to #play a matching game together and #read his favorite #Christmas#books . He was eagerly waiting to spend some time with his mama. Both of our #love#languages are quality time so it is easy to #connect and unwind together at the end of the day.To say I am #blessed beyond measure as a mother doesn't even seem like enough. Being their Mom is life-giving. I feel so many warm fuzzy feelings when I see my children finding #joy in the things my hands have made; whether it be the quilt he surrounds himself with, the game that we played together, or the wooden snowmen he was playing with before he sat down. ❤️Do you have anything that you regularly do together that has become sacred, special time that you look forward to spending with your child? Does anything give you the warm fuzzy feelings that I mentioned above? Feel free to comment and share! I would love to hear from you.
