THIS!! 😍👌🏻⛱ @newyorkermag keep dropping truth bombs please. We don’t change our behavior or our lives while we are on fire, or drowning. It is pretty much impossible to discern what needs to be changed or what is getting in the way of the change in an invalidating environment, or with someone yelling at us from the shore. If the help you’re getting isn’t helpful it may be because it isn’t helpful! Marsha Linehan says, “trying to be skillful while dysregulated is like trying to do your taxes while you’re being chased by a Lion.” This cartoon reminds me of that. If you are struggling, the answer isn’t figure out how to be better and try harder, but rather figure out what’s getting in the way and look at the situation like a problem to be solved not a flawed person who needs to be fixed. But first things first we need to put out the fire or stop drowning! You’re awesome, heatwaves almost over and dogs exist. I have infant spit up in my hair, let’s all keep crushing it! 😍 #nymag#nyctherapist#changeishard#validation#yougotthis#spitupqueen#maternityleave#bebrave#begentle
My Dearest Ava Grace,
If vomiting were a sport, you'd be an Olympic gold medalist. I've never met a baby that can spit up and smile so gracefully... multiple times per hour...every...single...day. 😷
You are definitely living up to your middle name.
Happy Hump Day! I'm going to enjoy this day by washing another load of YOUR laundry. 🤭
Regrann from @kaylamarquet.fit - When a baby spits up more than once in a 30 min time frame you just go bare skin! No one has time for a million wardrobe changes which leads to a million clothes to wash!
Who has time for that?! Not this mama!
My baby girl is 2 months old today! 💜 I don’t know how much she weighs, last I weighed her she was almost 11 lbs. 🤣
💜 She is staying awake more in the day and giving smiles more often. 💜 She lovesssss her baths every night and hates getting out!
💜 She is still the spit up queen 👑
💜 She just gets cuter and cuter every day and we love her so much!
yoga or tumtum time?? always trying to switch things up for this not so anticipated event...today: rolled towels and my Mother's Day card & a crocodile book for entertaining. And of course Adelaide's is folded cause she barfed on her first set up. #spitupqueen#tummytime#grayandadelaide
Some pics & vids from today. We took Miss Ella on a walk around the canal. She loved watching the ducks & laughed every time they flew over us! 🦆 She was super photogenic this morning, & then wouldn’t even look at me while we were at the canal. 🙄🤦🏼♀️ Oh well, at least we got to enjoy the weather! #itsfinallyspring 🌷#wentthrough3dressestoday#spitupqueen
Sometimes, the crazy morning in the house requires a change of scenery for everyone. Notes from this morning: -Unsupervised toddler’s are equivalent to tornadoes of yogurt (but that’s it’s own separate post).
-Babies who have not been eating well the past week are hungrier than usual. I’m super glad she feels better and I can be her human spit-up cloth. -I am a human spit-up cloth. Think about the baby in the carrier, who spat up several times before she fell asleep. ... I can’t wait to take a shower... #HazelFrances#MonetOfYogurt#TornadoOfYogurt#DanielleMarjorie#EaterExtrodinare#SpitUpQueen#EveryoneNeedsAChangeOfScenery
Tummy and story time=spit up all over said books. The twins only want to be on their tummies now so they can scoot backwards around the living room. Which means they leak spit up even more all over the blankets I put down. Anyone have any suggestions how to remedy this?? I guess once they actually go up on their knees to crawl they won’t have the extra pressure on their bellies??
This little ham turned 3 months the other day! She is full of love and surprises. Everything she touches must enter her mouth (including her party dress)! Kicking her legs and swinging her arms around at all times is very entertaining to her. She continues to be the spit up queen and has mastered going through all her bibs in a day...which is very impressive because we own a lot of bibs! Dance parties with Daddy are the best kind of parties. She's started to give Mommy the gummiest of grins over everything and I'm finally feeling a bit more appreciated for my efforts. #staylittlealittlelongerplease#weirdnoisesarefunny#spitupqueen#loveyoualways#haileyelyse#3monthsold
