Lookin for that peeerrrfect pumpkin 🧐 we spent yesterday at the pumpkin patch, I had an adorable pumpkin patch session in the evening, and guess where we’re heading this morning? Yup...to another pumpkin patch 🎃
I was having to do some little previews to showcase the mini Christmas sessions I will be doing this year. So who best to be my model? Of course my little lamb, he absolutely loves being in the studio, think he likes all the little props he get to play with whilst in there. .
I was setting up Kinlan was just having fun rolling around, and loved the space he had to work on his crawling techniques. .
Which obviously worked because today he is officially crawling, 8 and half months old. .
Can you believe he is actually in a 3 Month outfit here, the straps were still falling off him, he has a little body and arms but longer legs, all his trousers are small but the tops are way too big. .
Знаете, что такое дискриминация по половому признаку?
Когда муж с Соней английский учит, в шахматы играет, считать там, читать писать.
А Макса он научил ссать в раковину и показывать, где у него писюлёк а где пердулёк🤦🏻♀️
У меня всё, товарищи.
Хотя не, не всё. Расскажите, какие бесячие вещи делает ваш муж, а?
Пы.Сы. Дима, единственный читающий меня мужчина - извини😁 если ты отпишешься - я пойму.
Welcome to the jungle 💃🏻 (I can say that Bc they’re my friends and well...I live in a circus as well 😂)
But I love every single thing about this photo- Big brother making baby brother laugh and authentic emotion from everyone. You can’t ask for more....well, maybe the sun to come back. I miss the golden light. Pretty please with a cherry on top???
Maybe I should go to Grandpa’s to see if it’s snowing there too. We live less than a mile apart 😂 Sometimes the first thing he says when he wakes up is can I go to Grandpas? He’s a grandpa’s boy for sure! On another note we are in our first Winter Weather Advisory- yay for fall 😒

So shy but you know she’s had a fabulous day when she won’t stop talking about it afterwards!
She did burst in to song a few times though.. standard Ellie!
I will not talk to anybody but I will sing to you all! 💛
But she has learnt to swing which is cute.
I think Iowa and I are going to have a love/hate relationship this October. SO.MUCH.RAIN. It literally started raining right as we got into our cars when we finished. •
Side note though, I freaking love this mama. She’s a beast, training for a marathon and all ❤️❤️
Jumping into the weekend like... 🎉
Tomorrow we start up our swim lessons at @goldfishswimschool again & we’re so excited! Gio was so close to swimming on his own when we were in Florida, so I can’t wait to see how he progresses! 🐟 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Hey boo, you’re almost 2 and that shit is hard.
It’s a big world. Why shouldn’t we have big emotions? It’s a quality I’ve always admired among toddlers. The vulnerability, the rawness behind expressing exactly how you feel. When you’re happy, your smile eats your face (and my heart). When you’re upset, you cry. When you’re scared, you run to me. When you need reassurance, you reach for my hand, often without even looking. You know I’m always here, love. And yes, when you’re angry, you have a temper. Can some of these moments be hard for me as a mama? Yes. But it’s my job to embrace them because to you, they are very real.
When you fall sometimes you cry and sometimes you get up and keep going. I accept both of these reactions. It’s not my decision to tell you “you’re okay” or “you’re fine”. I relate this to adulthood, I couldn’t imagine having my heart broken and turning to my person for comfort only to hear the words “you’re fine”. That initial pain felt would be multiplied. Instead I hug you and say “oh hunni, that must’ve been scary. Did it hurt?” Usually by the time I’m done that sentence you’re over the pain and moving on to the next piece of chalk.
I will forever encourage you to express your feelings, whatever they may be.
When you’re happy, heck I’m the happiest.
When you’re sad, I will hold you. And my god, do I soak that in.
When you’re scared, I will show you the good.
When you’re angry, I will look for ways it would also frustrate me.
When you’re disappointed, I will encourage you to explain why.
When you’re hurting, I will be your source of calm.
When you need my hand, it will always be there.
When you need me to let go, I’ll watch from a distance.
It’s a damn big world. It’s okay to have damn big emotions. And I’ll be honest with you my little bean sprout, whatever you feel, I deeply feel. Whatever I feel, my mama (your grams) deeply feels. And that’s the way the wheel turns. So in all these ways it seems like you need me, I cross my heart when I say - I will always need you more. You make me a kinder, more patient, more loving, more tired version of myself.
This light I chase, it’s always been you, my boo.

• The Holy Grail of parenting • I have achieved it 💪🏻 • One kid in school all day, the other two started their naps simultaneously. <—🙌🏻🙌🏻
What should I do?? I’ll tell you what I SHOULD do; I should clean my fridge or fold laundry or change the kids’ sheets.
But, I think I’ll make coffee and read my book. 🤫 don’t tell the hubby 😉
