What are you thankful for? Every night before we go to bed Lydia and I tell each other what we are grateful for. Sometimes it’s something great that happened that day, sometimes it’s a “thumbs down day” 👎🏻 and Our gratitude is about our soft pillow or Babg Baby, her favorite doll.
And then there are times like today when picking Lydia up from school and see this sweet message on the class room door. This is my daughter to a T. Honestly, I’m surprised Strawberries aren’t at the top of the list 😂
Days like these also remind me that when life is hard, as it often is, I’m raising a little human and she watches everything I do.
So today I am thankful for my little. Most days I’m sure she’s not listening, and then I’m reminded that she is.
THIS WEEKS BLOG| A popular blog topic requested by all of you, was the moment we found out we were having twins 💗💗 Stay tuned as I talk about the day I remember so clearly and what was going on for us at that time. #cute
All this wedding work lately is incredible!!! One of my favorite photog things to do to stay in contact with the world (outside of weddings) are family sessions and working with adorable kids. Just like these cute sisters here! 💕💕💕
The other thing I LOVE to do is take a DAY OFF! SO, I will be having date day with my hubby. Lunch and a movie! <3
Be a #Happy#Mama 1). Get yourself dressed! If you are rocking the #mombie look you need to change! When was the last time you wore jeans or a dress? Showered? Start your day off in a clean, outfit! Getting dressed makes you feel polished, and recharged. 2. Master your morning or evening routines! Going to bed at night feeling worn down because you didn’t have time to refuel you know it’s time too change. I know I feel mentally and physically exhausted by 4pm and to make it worse I look around and see a sink full of dishes and of course the washing machine full of clothes it was just a broken record getting the best of me. 3. Move your body! You don’t necessarily have to work out, but take your kids for a short walk, dance to some music in the living room, exercise can release endorphins that get you into a #positive#headspace . 4. Don’t be afraid to ask for help! If you’re overwhelmed ask your relative or a friend to watch the kids for a little while to clear your head, if you can feel yourself running on empty, recognize those signs and reach out. Raising your voice and yelling at the kids can harm their little bodies mentally. 5. Seek out those friendships, it’s time to have adult friendships and make time for yourself. 6. Be prepared for everything, dirty clothes, dishes, laundry, do not ever rush, it will stress you out. 7. MAKE TIME FOR YOU! I do not say this lightly, once your kids are asleep watch a movie, drink some wine, make a hobby, drawing, arts & crafts, as a mother we seem to lose our identities, know your limits and don’t push them. #motherhood#mommyoftwo#instagram_faces#instagramer#stayathomemom#instagood#confessions#myfirststory#instagramaviation#inspirational#loveyourself#mommyofgirls#makemehappy#bestrong#raisingourfuture#littlehumans#losingmymindonekidatatime
La única gente que me interesa es la que está loca, la gente que está loca por vivir, loca por hablar, loca por salvarse, con ganas de todo al mismo tiempo, la gente que nunca bosteza ni habla de lugares comunes, sino que arde, arde como fabulosos cohetes amarillos explotando igual que arañas entre las estrellas.

Mommy BASIC recommends @pienkvoetpretmontana 🍃
Joining a playgroup like @pienkvoetpret is a fun way to get baby to experience new things! In my case it was to get out and make new mommy-friends, since I was one of the firsts to have a child in my circle of friends. This is actually how I became friends with my current bestie @monachechapman .
The Pienkvoet Pret Workshop is a holistic and integrated method of fine and Gross-Motor Education for babies and toddlers! 💕
@pienkvoetpret are “classes” filled with a variety of activities varying from playful music, baby massages, rhymes, sensory activities , messyplay ext.
Afterwards a bunch of parents ( moms, dads, grandparents or even nannies) social over a well deserved cup of coffee. .
This is an awesome way to release some of the stress of new motherhood, but your baby benefits from this amazing class! Win- Win! .
What playgroup do you love? 🌸
One of the only moments Sienna isn’t squirming or on the move. She can’t get enough of bathtime and will gladly patiently wait while mommy fills the water and makes sure it’s juuuussst the right warmth. Maybe she takes a few extra moments to get it ready to steal a couple more seconds of calm.
How beautiful is this @chichiclothing dress on Evelyn? The dresses actually start from age 3... but who says size matters? I personally think it just means she’ll be able to wear this dress until she’s at least 3 and a half... possibly 4 if she’s a little on the short side like her mum.
Lots of time to wear it then (she turns 18 months this week to give you an idea). Chi Chi Clothing have recently started doing these mini dresses to go with their adult range- as a brand they’re my go to for formal events. Scroll back through my feed and you’ll find me wearing one of their dresses at Ascot.
Ps. that blue dress I’m wearing in my Cotswolds stories is also Chi Chi clothing... I’ll of course pop a post up wearing it at some point too 👌🏼 #gifted

We spent the weekend camping out and having an absolute ball at the Blues at Bridgetown. We camped with dear friends, made new ones and reconnected with old ones, some of which we literally first met when they were our camping neighbours at the festival many moons ago, and by chance each year we seem to rock up at the same time and camp alongside each other. They've watched us grow from married with no kids to a family of five.....year by year in Bridgetown. We are constantly reminded how blessed we are with the wide array of people from all walks of life that enrich ours, and our children's lives.
The festival has a wonderfully friendly and relaxed atmosphere; with the entire southwest highway blocked off on the Saturday for the street festival. Blues music is played over the three days across multiple free and ticketed venues - from massive outdoor stages, to any of a number of pubs, to a cidery, and the town hall.
It makes us so happy to see the kids so immersed in live music and able to witness the joy it brings to others, and how that joy is expressed. From subtle toe tapping, to clapping and dancing with absolute reckless abandon. Young and old standing shoulder to shoulder. Seeing our own kids dance like nobody is watching is just the best thing. Seeing how they connect with others and build rapport with our own friends is beautiful. Seeing them engage with street performers and other kids warms your heart. Seeing their wondrous smiles as they point with a finger in the air and plead for "one more" at the end of a set makes the sheer exhaustion worth it. That and the smiles of encouragement and nods from complete strangers
We are thrilled to be having Chelsea Oliver from @_babytalktime featuring on our blog, talking about her fertility journey. Chelsea’s blog will be live in the upcoming weeks, so keep an eye out for a great read.
Two men & a baby
Had a great weekend with amazing people. Was excited I was able to button it by breaking bread with @faithbuiltfitness & family. Congrats on the newest addition my dude!
Finally got to meet baby Mateo. #ladiesman#twomenandababy#258
One of my favorite things about sending out Christmas cards is getting them back from friends and family to hang up for the year. The other thing I love (and hate) is that it forces me to get pictures of us.
One year I got lazy and just shot the kids for our card ...did not go over well. I was surprised that a bunch of people asked where we were. But, y'all. Getting 4 kids ready AND myself presentable is work. Setting up the shot and getting most people looking without some crazy grimace is a Christmas miracle. But, I basically get an adrenaline high once the chaos has ended and I'm sure I got some great shots. .
The cards are made, y'all. 🤗🎄🎉
Tonight I am too exhausted to post product or decor photos. ✨✨✨
Instead I will post a photo of two little humans that don’t care about likes or followers and just care about me being the best Mama I can ❤️
Has anyone else started with the whole Santa bribery? This is the first year the twins have a good understanding of how it all works, so I’m loving being able to use the good old “I’ll call Santa and tell him you’re being naughty”. It’s amazing how quickly they clean up their mess. They’ve been told if they don’t listen they will get a big bucket of dirt for Christmas. Whilst Isla has been telling everyone Santa is bringing her “A dolly, money and all the clothes.” #hermothersdaughter . Flash back to last years Santa photo. The twins were mesmerised whilst Eden had a top knotch meltdown.
Hey son…when I was your age it was early 1982.
Tornados and storms were devastating major cities. The 80s recession had just begun. Wars were erupting around the world.
I don’t remember any of those things..but I do remember feeling safe, secure, and hopeful…thanks to the love of my parents.
I’m going to do the same for you - despite all of the things I am weary of, the things that have me furious, the things that sometimes feel hopeless.
Your life and dreams will shape a new future that I’ll get to grow old in…so I’m going to champion hope, deliver honesty, and leave plenty of room for your joy and imagination.
Because my faith in this planet is represented by you, the little human that we brought to it.
Thank you Renee my love for capturing our long hug that made me cry.
Happy 11 months Osiris
