My eldest. My girl. The one that made me a mummy. The one that is giving me all my firsts for this journey along motherhood. She may give me grief, and is starting to chat back and push boundaries like I’ve never known, but I wouldn’t change her for the world. She’s growing up to be a strong, warrior princess and it’s our job as parents to nurture it not push it down 😍💕🎀#mummytoaprincess#firstborn#lovemychildren#motherandaughter
13 jaar geleden werd ik voor het eerst mama van een dochter, ze kreeg de naam Anaïs. Ondertussen is ze uitgegroeid tot een hele jongedame en ik ben ontzettend trots op haar! Gelukkige verjaardag Anaïs, love you very much ❤😘🍀 #firstborn#birthdaywishes 🎂 #sweetthirteen
This little princess just wanted to party all night. Mummy doesn’t party anymore though. Feed at 12. Wide awake from 2-530. Woke up at 7. Send help and some dip and crisps. I really need that right now 🌻
These two melt my heart. The way they laugh together, fight lol (yes Zaki beats naya up 😩 and naya the big sis doesn’t hit him back ) can’t wait to see what they have in store for me and @missyasmineponle . See you guys in few months 💃🏾 #firstborn#siblings#otherfirstborn#love#kids
Happy birthday to the best daddy in the whole wide world!!!!!
He is my rock, my mentor, my motivator, my first love😘 One of the coolest dad ever, peace loving and can smile for africa. He hates pictures but will always obliges us whenever we want to take a picture with him😍😍. I want to first of all say Thank you Dad for showing me and my siblings unconditional love, for your devotion, selflessness and attention to us. You have always encouraged us to be the best we can be, to love God and put family above all things. As you add a year to your age, may God bless you with long life, good health and prosperity, may you live to see your great great-grand children, you shall know peace on all sides as you are a peace loving person. As you have provided and taken care of us, may we grow to take care of you and mum in Jesus name...Amen
Happy birthday once again Daddy...Love you loads
Omg this young woman has my ❤️ Her heart is like pure gold. She loves Jesus with her whole being. Gives to others before herself. She is the hardest worker in the room. She will make you laugh till ur cheeks and belly hurt. Best big sister. Loyal. Faithful. Beautiful inside and out. And one day soon you will be buying a movie ticket to see her on the big screen. I am so proud of her. My first baby. And to think everyone wanted me to abort her?! Crazy crazy no thank you! Love you Angel 😘🤩😎 @angelica_thompson #daughter#firstborn#beautiful#proudmama#loveher#christians#moviestar
The days are long but the years are short. I had a tough #momlife day today. My patience was not abundant and I lost it a few times. It’s crazy how you can go from “yay let’s sit and read together” to “stop touching me right this second” in five minutes. Tonight I looked at the clock and realized it was already 8pm and we hadn’t even started bedtime. I don’t know how it got that late. Baby D was an hour last his bedtime. It was a mess. C wanted to test out his new scissors and cut out a heart. I grabbed him a piece of paper before I went to put Baby D down and by the time I joined in helping with bedtime for the big kids, I completely forgot about his art project. When I went to tidy the island before heading to bed, I saw this perfect example of a child’s love for his Momma. I’m not touching it. He can finish it tomorrow. It’s a fantastic reminder that kids desire love - to receive it and to give it. C gave me four hugs at bedtime. Goodness I love that kid. I conflict with him the most as he’s the most emotional (like me) of the crew but man alive do I love him. 💙
My cesarean incision is hurting, itchy, and somehow also numb. My nipples resemble hamburger meat, which hurts way more than my incision right now. I’m actually dreading tonight’s feedings and can’t even manage to pump right now for Steve to supplement with a syringe later to give me a break. I’ve hit an all new level of exhaustion I never imagined was possible. But one glance at this perfect little boy, and I know I’m the luckiest mama in the world. I’m so sore and tired, and already it pains my heart that he’s going to grow up too fast. But I know I’m blessed to get to experience these pains, and I’m not taking it for granted. #awe#ebfbaby#newborn#breastfeeding#snoogle#firstborn
The closer I get to my due date the more and more sad I get. My dadas time as an only child is coming to an end in less than 2 months. You’re going to make the greatest big brother for your sister, Aniyah. I thank god everyday for putting you in my life and giving me a reason to live and do good for. Thank you for showing me what unconditional painful love truly feels like. Thank you for never ending hugs and kisses. Thank you for guiding me and showing me the light to every situation. You’ll always be my baby no matter how old you are my chonchi feo. Mommy loves you to infinity. 💛🦁

Love being able to be home with my sweet baby girl 🙋🏻♀️🙌🏼 the first three years of life are so crucial!!! The more I learn, the more I realize that I wouldn’t have it any other way👌🏻 I never imagined myself working from home, but the opportunity presented itself and I can’t wait to see where it takes me and my family ♥️ Here’s your chance to join me; to start being the best version of you, to dream bigger, aim higher and realize that the perfect time is now. No more excuses!

I think I need to make cooking + baking with my oils more of a thing. 😍
We've been celebrating Elend for the past week and a half, and this mama wanted to make something extra to celebrate a special birthing day. 🍑: @masumoto_family_farm + @cqbeer what a treat!💕
34 weeks- Coming home to this seriously just melts my heart. I can’t believe that in a matter of weeks our little princes will be making an appearance. I can’t wait to looks into her eyes, kiss her little cheeks, and just hold her. I can’t believe that I’m actually having my own baby💕We are completely prepared for her arrival! We have the car seat in the car, one hospital bag in the car, as well as one hospital bag by her crib. Mommy and daddy are now just playing the waiting game. My hubby hung the mosquito net my grandmother made years ago. I wanted to hang it, because even though she is gone I want my baby girl to have a little piece of her great grandmother with her. What else can I say besides it’s amazing to see how much our little girl has changed my husband and I. Everything we do from this moment on is for you! You have brought so much joy into our lives!You have changed both of our lives since the day we got that big fat positive pregnancy test💕 We love you to the moon and back kida Jillene Rich#firstborn#34weekspregnant 🤰🏻#daddyslittlegirl 👨👧#allreadytogo#anxiouslywaitingforyou#princesskida #
