While I was at work yesterday, Christopher sent me this photo! On days when the grandmas aren’t able to watch Willow, Chris bring her to work with him. She gets to hangout with her daddy and all the plants he grows. As you can see, she loves days with daddy ✨ Anyways, my heart was in a puddle when I got this pic and legit got teary eyed at my desk 😅💕

Hey! So I’ve seen so many new followers lately I thought I should give you new guys some deets on myself and the shop☺️
...
I’m a mama of three sweet babies Ira Edward 👼🏼 who got to be with Jesus way sooner than I would have liked but His ways are bigger than mine, Camden Walter, my spunky almost two year old and Anita Mae who’s 6 months and will never do anything wrong 😁 They are my number one fans... more like they’re forced to wear moms knits 😂 My hubs, Jon, and I love playing instruments and singing on our church’s worship team regularly and adventuring around our gorgeous town of Missoula MT! ...
...
I opened this little shop of mine about two months before Cam was born and man was it a struggle 😩 It’s not easy finding your place sometimes but I just stuck to the things I loved all the while building some really amazing relationships that are honestly more valuable than the shop itself. Also, meeting all these other moms helped with finding my groove as a mom too! So there’s a few little tidbits about myself and the shop. Now for some really great news! ...
...
I’m flying through these orders and will be sending them out this coming week! So that means a new drop date will be scheduled for Nov. 2nd at 6pm MST!! Wahooo! If you’re still reading thank you, and tell me about yourself! I’d love to meet some new friends ☺️

Мне кажется мы собрали достаточно яблок, достаточно чтобы испечь как минимум 100 яблочных пирогов....осталось только найти кого-то, кто любит печь 😂
А вообще мы участвуем в конкурсе «ОченьОсень» от @affelandra и @love_enot

Just love this time of year.....There is nothing better than a day off with the kiddies to go pumpkin picking and have a pub lunch ☺️. Quality family time before I leave them again Sunday for a trip to China. 🇨🇳 😢

There’s something about going from two people to three that makes a house a home 🏡💛

If you've followed me for a while, you might remember that we stopped going to any structured classes when the twiglets were about 18 months old, because they'd be so feral it was just too stressful for me to manage them both 🙈 Now that they're a bit older and have been going to nursery etc, I figured we'd try again... They love dancing so I chose a @diddidancecrew class near us. I was quite nervous as to whether they'd listen/join in etc, especially as when we arrived, they started by tearing round the hall like complete maniacs, slamming into the walls and shouting 'Lady Gaga' at the tops of their voices 😳😩 But actually, they did brilliantly once it started - they listened and joined in the majority of the time and most importantly, they LOVED it 😊 I was so proud of them 😍 It's nice when they surprise you isn't it 🤣😊 We also had a really lovely park afternoon in the gorgeous autumn sunshine so all in all a pretty fab day 😁 I hope Friday has been as kind to everyone else - weekend now yay👍🏻😘

and to this little guy 💙 a year ago we were only a few weeks away from the beginning of when things started to get real and I was scared beyond belief. From the moment I stepped out on PICU at Glenfield I knew I wanted to do something positive from our experience, to fundraise, raise awareness of CHD and to give hope to other families about to head into the unknown. almost a year on, thank you for inspiring me to do good things each and everyday my little love... we’ve nearly made it to a year (how has that happened!) 💙

My poor little man is teething. He's chewing on everything, cheeks all rosy red and it is definitely making me feel useless in helping him. Luckily I don't  have to be! So thankful for these rollers that can help him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌿 Copaiba and Lavender on his little jaw
🌿 Gentle Baby on those little feet day and night! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Check out my wellness account @courageouslynavigatingoils for more of our wellness journey! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

it definitely helps this mama feel a little less useless.

You ever get in a funk? Feel frustrated, cranky, indifferent, drained — just tired of everything, but not even really sure why? I woke up Monday feeling all this, emotions everywhere. I felt this weird frustration with life in general, like I’d hit a wall and was blocked — I was getting annoyed and angry with Kinsley and my husband over the smallest of things for no reason. I couldn’t pin point where it was coming from, which was even more frustrating.
...
To be honest, I think it was a combination of factors such as a needy baby, dreary weather, lack of seeing my husband much, lack of self care, but the main culprit behind this “mood,” was my hormones.
...
Too often, I feel like as women we forget that HORMONES AND EMOTIONS ARE REAL and they do, in fact, effect us. Up until Wednesday night this mood just took over me, so I turned to some oily friends for help and stumbled across an oil called •Northern Lights Black Spruce.• This is the description I found on it:
“It can be used to release emotional blocks and can bring about feelings of balance — it actually has the capacity to make you feel grounded and elevated all at the same time.”
...
Well guess what, they were right! I’ve been diffusing this oil for the past two days straight now and I was in shock at the difference in how I felt. My emotions haven’t felt like they were stuffed in a bottle about to explode, I’ve felt calm, relieved, grounded. 2.5 years of using oils and they still blow my mind.
...
So here’s to looking forward to a great weekend, with emotions in check! Happy Friday friends!

Being in nature is definitely a Site of Mutual Fulfillment for us. Have you heard of this concept? It’s a bit of a gamechanger. @lulasticblog coined it: “An SMF is a place where both child and parent have a great time.” Simple but powerful. Building as many SMFs as possible into our rhythms is such a big act of self-care. These activities help fill me up rather than leaving me depleted the way some of overcrowded, chaotic play groups do. Our local cafe. The walled garden. The park. Nature Club. These woods. @clarejasminebeloved’s studio. Lazy mornings reading books and drinking tea (me) on the sofa. These are all SMFs for our family. What are some of yours? ✨

P.S. I have never had as many comments on a garment as we have on this bunny hat from @leopardspotsbaby. You can get 10% off her Etsy shop using the code PETER10

New mom tip: it should be your babe's own job to put themselves to sleep. It is important to not let your little one become overly dependent on nursing, bottles and constant physical contact to put them to sleep. While swaddling and shushing are fine, try to refrain from holding, rocking or feeding as a tactic to get your little one to sleep. 💤 #WeeSleep101 #WeeSleep⠀

We had ourselves a little 1/2 birthday for our sissy girl yesterday. She is seriously the ham of all hams. I can’t believe we’ve been loving on her for an entire 6 months now. We love you baby girl, even when we make you eat those awful green beans and go to bed at a decent hour. (You’ll thank us one day 🤪) #ourislamae #growingisla #gerberphotosearch2018

Parenthood is an amazing lesson in what we’re capable of. Most days I scarcely feel like an adult. And yet, when I’m woken in the middle of the night by my sick baby, I will shake off the exhaustion and my own aches, catch as much throw up as my hands can hold, and sing “Silent Night” five-hundred times if that’s what it takes to help him sleep. There’s coffee on the other side, but more than that, there’s the incredible realization that we are capable of giving our precious little ones exactly what they need when they need it most: comfort, sacrifice, and love. Weary parents, you’re doing the good, good work. Keep it up.

Authenticity attracts authenticity. You’d be surprised at how many people share the exact same struggles that you do. But when you keep “faking fine,” you rob yourself and others of the opportunity to connect in a genuine way. To say “me too.” To feel less alone in a world full of pretense. To be vulnerable. To say that life is hard and I’m struggling too, but let’s love and support each other through it and hold each other accountable for making ourselves priorities in our own lives. YOUR TRUTH could set someone else free. But first, you’ve got to FREE YOURSELF.

It was a play date. Our guests (and myself) were immediately informed upon arrival that they’d be watching a performance and seats were provided in a perfect semi circle. I respectfully asked Harper if I could film this improv experience and she said “yes”. Enjoy... #arianagrande

Is it weird that she only will wear shoes inside, but wants them off as soon as she hits grass/dirt? Because if it is, oh well. I was barefoot most of my childhood, and actually have several memories of my dad telling me I needed to wear shoes outside, especially when it's cold. Guess she takes after me that way. Which probably means she'll never have soft girlie feet 😂💁🏻‍♀️

Annie 23 meses, como o tempo passa rápido, daqui a um mês são 2 anos... 2 anos! Ontem revi todas as roupinhas que eram dela e que vão passar para o irmão. Chorei, devem ser das hormonas da gravidez 😅 ❤️ #23monthsold #maededois

Motherhood has a way of making you feel a little, well....frumpy. 😬

Yesterday, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and buy an outfit I would usually pass right over. Not because I didn’t like it, but because I didn’t have the courage to wear it. 
Today, I found that courage and wore it. (Awkwardly, but courageously 😜😂)

“If you call me, need me!”
During potty training, I’d always tell Ryah, “If you need me, call me” and this is her attempt at saying it 😜 Whenever she walks away from me, she says this and it’s seriously the cutest thing ever. ☺️

You know all those funny, cute things your kids do?  It’s kind of sad that one day, they’ll do it for the last time but you won’t know it until months later, when you think, “remember when she used to ____?” 😭 It just makes me when to bottle up every cute moment I have with my kids (and trust me, there are a lot of them) 🤗

We meet our son in less than 5 weeks, and I hope he’s just like you. Just as kind, just as centered, just as selfless. So thankful for a partner who will raise our boy to be strong but gentle, to seek love and equality, and who will never tell him “boys don’t cry.” Thankful for you today and every day. 📷: @nurseclara

I wanted Apple pie then saw pumpkin pie at the store. I went back to that pie stand three times trying to decide if I really wanted the pumpkin pie or if I should stick to my original craving of apple pie. Then I got tired and wanted to cry and a cheeseburger. 🤷🏻‍♀️ being pregnant with a girl is WAY different than with my boys. Sometimes Eric finds me eating in bed and I’ll say don’t hug me I’ll cry and of course being the sweet husband he is he’ll hug me and then I’ll cry. Most times I’m crying because of silly things and my logical side knows they’re silly but damn do these hormones think the world is ending. Also I hate pie. 🙃

So we finally bought an oil diffuser last night! Ellie has been suffering and miserable from a stuffy nose that she hasn’t been sleeping well. I never really thought much about essential oils cause it was relevant to me. At least until now. We used the peppermint oil last night and I’m happy to report that Ellie finally slept through the night! I actually even put one in our room too cause I’ve been stuffy as well and it was heaven 😌 we currently just have a small spa room diffuser but can not wait to invest in something bigger! Comment your favorite essential oil blend that I need to try! .

Sweet baby girl Mara is nine months old today! She is the spunkiest little girl, with the cutest personality. She LOVES to eat and is getting pretty good at feeding herself. Not crawling yet, but she is starting to get there and wanting to go places! She grabs everything in her sight, and she probably loves her brother’s toys more than her own. She loves to be held and is always so friendly to everyone she sees. She is a happy little girl! We love you so much sweet Mimi 💜

Finished off Maths Week at school with dress up day today. With the change in seasons Norah’s been asking a lot of questions and I’ve been teaching her about temperature so I thought a thermometer would make a good ‘wear lots of numbers’ costume....turned out ok I guess but definitely more phallic than I intended 😂 🌡 #diycostumefail #mathsweek #shellkillmewhenshesolder #mumlife #instamum #myhappycature #littlesquaresofourlife #honestmotherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodalive

The joy of half term! This girl is one happy bunny that she’s gets a week with her mama.... I mean I can’t blame her (🤣) and whilst I used to dread holidays with a special needs child, generally life is much easier than when she’s at school as her anxiety is less prominent. Did anyone get a chance to watch There She Goes on BBC4? It was fantastic... so accurate to our life except for the eating... made me laugh and cry in equal measures 💕💕💕💕well done @bbc for highlighting the reality of special needs lives and raising awareness #mylife #reality #mynameismama #honestmotherhood #halfterm #joy #specialneeds #angelmansyndrome #specialneedslife #anxiety #mama #thereshegoes #bbc #drama #chromosomedisorder #rare

Opowiem Wam jak wyglądał backstage powstania tego zdjęcia 📸 Bo to nie tak, że ktoś nam je zrobił, to by było za proste 😜 Aparat leżał na konarze drzewa, przytrzymywany przez gałęzie. Sterowanie aparatu telefonem odpadało, bo wyczerpała mi się bareria. Dlatego pozostała opcja samowyzwalacza i moje bieganie od aparatu do tego budynku 🙈 Kilka przebieżek, masa śmiechu i już 💁🏼😜
A jak u Was wygląda robienie rodzinnych zdjeć? 😉

If you live in California, don’t be duped by our sneaky politicians who manipulated the title of Prop. 6! Voting YES on 6 REPEALS the gas tax and higher car registration fees. I don't really see myself riding my bike with two toddlers on the handlebars anytime soon. #vote #YESon6 #repealthegastax

I just read the boys a story about a dragon who was looking for a pumpkin “as big as a house” to make the scariest jack-o’-lantern. But there were only 6 small pumpkins so he brought them home. His friend laughed at him and told him he couldn’t make a scary jack-o’-lantern out of a small pumpkin. The dragon said, “just wait.” His friend saw the dragon’s progress and laughed. Dragon said, “just wait.” His friend saw small holes carved in the small pumpkins and laughed. The dragon said, “just wait.” And then the dragon stacked the pumpkins to make a stack of jack-o’-lanterns so scary he scared himself! He knew he could do it, but didn’t know how or what it would look like!
🎃 
We strive for the perfect giant pumpkin in life. Our dreams are big! We want the perfect ending all wrapped in one nice efficient package. We picture it to be like someone else’s (but bigger!) and we don’t feel successful unless it is shaping up to be just how it appears in our mind.
🎃
We’re going along and then something changes and we have to adjust. This happens constantly, it seems! It takes longer than we hoped. We have to recommit. It’s harder than we thought. We doubt ourselves. People don’t understand or support us like we want. We have to keep going. 🎃
You hear, “believe in the process” but how can you when you can’t even picture it?! What will it all look like?! Will you ever get “there?!” You have to keep going! 🎃
Get back up. Be flexible. Trust. Be grateful. Keep pushing. And most of all, believe you can do it! You are worth it. It will be worth it. Even though you can’t picture it now. Just wait.

We’ve been thinking about this post from @sondermama and wanted to share it, directly in her own words, “I see so many posts about raising girls to be strong women. Women who will make a difference, women with a voice and I want to high five those parents and cheer on those girls. Part of me is a little sad I won’t have the opportunity to raise a girl as I was blessed with boys. However, I’m beginning to realize how we raise our sons is just as important. So here is to raising boys that respect women and embrace their sensitive side. That aren’t taught to man up but that showing emotion is ok for boys too. Because having a world full of strong women only solves half the problem.” Beautifully said @sondermama. Thank you for sharing 💕 #repost

This is me. Always talking, wildly gesticulating, bright lipstick, #messyhairdontcare, mother of lions, lover of colour and noise and sparkle. Wanting attention but always listening, wanting silence but needing music, wanting to take and shake you (very gently) by the shoulders, to hug you tight and look you in the eyes and say:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
THE RIGHT TIME ISN'T COMING.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stop waiting and wondering. Stop dreaming and finding reasons not to and "maybe tomorrow" and "women like ME don't do things like YOU."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I see your fire, I see you matter. I see your fear that your world might shatter if you try something new, if you take a big step, if you open your heart to the big what's next and say:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"I'm ready."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I also inadvertently seem to have written a weak rap. Happy to go live on stories with a backing track and say this out loud if demand is such.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There's a link to book a call with me in my bio. If you're interested, do it now and start the change now. (also my prices are going up so I'd get in there now).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Sir, that is a great look for an old-timey detective. But it’s 81 degrees and you’re creeping out the other customers. So take your cauliflower pizza crust, untwist your mustache and go home. Oh, and you dropped your monocle. .

What a day!!!! Thank you so much to everyone who joined us for the coffee & sensory morning today and for making it such a special morning! We raised £650 (whoop!!!!)for @tinytickers and @heartlinkglenfield which is pretty amazing for a morning of doing all the things we love with our little ones - drinking coffee, eating cake, shopping and singing! ✨🧡 Thanks to the amazing Helen from @sparksensory for bringing her sparkle & magic to the day, everyone old and young loved the singing and music! Thanks to all of the wonderful stall holders @lilypad_designs @stelladotuk @sensoryplayboxuk @littlejemsphotography @babytreebabies for bringing their gorgeous products for sale and thanks to everyone who donated a raffle prize, it is much appreciated and we’re delighted to have raised so much!

And big thanks to @bk_nottingham for letting us transform your wonderful restaurant into a kiddies paradise for the morning and to @mothers_meetup for supporting the event and just generally being ace! I really appreciate it 😍
She looks the most like me when she's giving a meanmug face... Is that bad?

Good morning, I had some extra time to edit some pictures and came across these gems. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Photo bombing is their specialty and they do it quite well. 📸👀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Kiwi (her cat) clearly makes her happy lol and I’m pretty sure the picture that Buddah (her pup) photobombed would have been an amazing picture, but it’s a perfect representation of mom life over here lol the battle between fur babies and human baby.

In other news, Rhea became an official Brand Rep for @ilanielyse and we can’t wait to get our order and add to my ridiculous plethora of Rhea pictures 💕

On the rough days & long nights, she can scream for an hour and then suddenly smile at us. And we melt, every single time. In an instant I forget that she was only moments ago a Jack-Jack impersonator, and suddenly she’s worlds cutest baby again. •

I have been really frustrated lately with my lack of progress (or rather, what I feel has been a lack of progress). But instead of putting myself down and getting in my head, I’m choosing to focus on area that I do feel I’ve made a lot of progress in and that I can be proud about: my back and arms 💪🏻 It helps that I have an almost 23 lb toddler to carry around, too 😉

#fullbodyfriday is done and I’m looking forward to the weekend! Happy Friday, loves! 💜

Brothers but that doesn’t mean that they are best friends. These two fight like cat and dog. It’s a lie when people say that they will be best friends 💔😂

Do you take regular family vacations?
I’m trying to be better at planning quality family time away from home. We get so caught up in our busy lives, we forget that vacations are (much) needed!

Come find out what we did on our last mini vacation, up on the blog today! #linkinbio
