We are so blessed to have found such a caring young woman to watch over our little man 👶 She is so loving and generous with him (and us) and I can tell he already loves her too! 💕 he smiles when he sees her and laughs like a crazy man when they play...it makes my heart happy!
Our experience with #scoliosis continues and this time we get some very good news and some very annoying, highly irritating. news. Link is in the profile.
If the caption is any indicator, Gwennie is not happy that this #blogpost is not about her.
Always running used to be our normal. But now we are focusing on slowing down and enjoying our time together as a family. I am soaking up these years where the kiddos actually want to be with the hubs and I. 😂
Learn more about how slowing down helped us find peace on the blog.
While Jessie was en route to Austin by plane, and our friends had just gone on to their next destination, and while I was just getting dinner ready, Seva accidentally decided that we’d have a fancy dinner out instead...2 suckers at the Lake After Hours Clinic 😬 Little one was so brave as she got 7 stitches to sew up her cleanly busted open chin #ouch . She fell off of a little chair cuz she stepped on the edge to get down and fell straight onto her chin. So thankful for an After Hours clinic less than 1 minute away! She made it to 3 years old before busting it for real so that’s not too bad, eh? 😅 #obligatorypostaboutstitches
When your lunch break coincides with playtime and your baby boy tries to roll over so he can get to you 💕 Shortly after this he started rolling over from tummy to back like it was no big thang! 🙌 He rolled here and there but hadn’t really mastered it until now. Feeling blessed that I was here to enjoy the moment!!
#mommytip while traveling, if you don’t have baby’s books handy, use any magazine or books with pictures you can get access to. I try to teach baby A colors, names of different objects, sometimes some silly game like opening and shutting the book or even counting the pages. Honestly without realizing and while having fun, as parents we can teach our babies so much . We don’t even realize how and when these little ones starting building their vocabulary and start understanding and also naming different objects and so much more. I’m sure soon enough my little one may surprise me with 2-3 word sentences. #AdventuresinParenting
Throwback Thursday to this sweet little hike in the North Cascades over the summer. 🏔
Our littlest love is under the weather today and is snuggled up next to me on the sofa instead of running around like usual. I do wish I could take her discomfort and take it on myself, it break my heart seeing her so mellow and without her usual spark.
Mom Tip #4 with @babiesrus_canada - Some of my most anxious nights I’ve had as a mom are the first few nights at home with my new babies. The excitement of the day of visitors and settling in come to an end, and night and exhaustion creep in. With the rush of postpartum hormones my mind goes to dark places where I cry and cry, soaking my pillow, over the overwhelming thoughts of SIDS. The only things that help me in those moments are to take physical action over those extreme thoughts, because I’m sure I’m not the only one who has laid there with their mind going to the worst possible situation with their new baby. So what actions do I take? I make sure my baby is physically safe. In her bassinet or crib there are no loose blankets, pillows, strings, curtains, stuffed animals, toys, anything besides her and her secure swaddle/sleep sack. That’s it. Your new baby doesn’t need anything else to sleep safely. The other thing I do is breathe. How blasé? No, I mean breathe so loud you can’t hear the newborn noises your baby makes. Breathe down deep into your stomach and then exhale it all out. All of it. I do this until I fall asleep - it’s my white noise and my calm breathing. It hasn’t failed me with my 3 babies and I plan to use it for our next. How do you combat postpartum anxiety? #AdventuresInParenting#AD

What are your favourite types of toys for your children? 💕 Living in such a small space, we look for toys that aren’t just one and done. Toys that last longer than the flavour of the week. Toys that grow with the girls, and can be used for some time. Most importantly, toys that the girls can play with together. #ad The Fisher-Price 3-in-1 Sit-to-Stand Activity Center (available at @babiesrus_canada) is all of the above. Right now, Berkley can use the floor mat for tummy time, and as she grows, can transition to sitting and playing with all 360 degrees of exciting activities. And when not teaching her little sister how to play, big sister Morley can take advantage of the toddler play table feature. // Check out my stories for more on this multi-functional activity center! #AdventuresinParenting
My favorite little guy used to be the BEST sleeper of all time. A few months before he turned 2 he figured out how to climb out of his crib and had to turn it into a toddler bed, and his sleep has not been the same. He would cry about going to bed and constantly get up. One night I found him asleep under the chair in the living room! We now have a gate on his door so he’s not wandering around, and he will lie on the floor next to it calling for me, telling me he needs something, then take his diaper off and throw it in the hallway 🙈 sometimes it goes on for an hour! we’re trying a few new things to help solidify his bedtime routine and promote calm before sleep. I’ve read some research about the benefits of certain essential oils like lavender and chamomile that can help settle for sleep, so this is one of the new things we’re doing. Do you use essential oils? What do you use them for? How have they helped? ✨
