She’s staying in for now!
Contractions have nearly completely stopped and I feel so relieved. I can’t imagine what it would feel like to leave a baby behind at the hospital and go home. My hospital check up went well today with all results coming back normal and we even got to see our sweet girl sucking her thumb on the ultrasound screen. I’m just taking it as slow as I can but getting organised in case she tries that again!!
gar nicht so einfach... 😅 .
Einer hat die Augen zu, einer guckt nach links, einer nach rechts, einer gar nicht, weil er keine Lust hat, oder zieht Grimassen...
Am Ende haben wir es doch irgendwie geschafft ❣️
Schönen Start ins Wochenende...
So many of you know I’ve been struggling with chronic migraines since I was pregnant with Louis [basically for the last 3.5 years] every month, twice a month on average 3-5 days at a time I will be in my bedroom, in the dark in absolute agony. ⠀
I’ve recently discovered I had a hormone imbalance + for the last 3 months have been trying to balance that out. While I’ve been excited to find out what I hope to be the cure. My skin has been suffering from my hormones being out of whack!.⠀
I was reluctant to trial any new skincare as I didn’t want to potential activate it + make it worse...but when I trialed some samples I had of the Rodan + Fields skincare I have NEVER EVER, CROSS MY HEART + all that jazz had a product instantly make a difference. I honestly couldn’t believe it. My skin had never felt that soft + after a few days my skin was clearing up + within a week my skin had dramatically improved. ⠀
I instantly went + bought most of the range + had them express posted 🙊 I’ve been using this new skincare now for almost 2 months + I have never been so happy with my skincare range. Not only has my face cleared up, I feel my skin is firmer + more radiant. ⠀
If you’re having trouble with your skin + after new skincare feel free to have a chat to Emma, my Rodan + Fields skincare consultant at @roll.back.time . She has been amazing throughout the last few months. Continually checking in on me ensuring I get the most out of my skincare. I honestly have never been happier with my skincare products. ⠀
If I hadn’t trialed it myself I would never have believed it. I’ve been brave enough to share some before pics in my stories, along with my new skincare routine for you to have a peek. ⠀
Emma is currently offering $15 cash back when you spend over $100 on any products! + $25 cash back paid directly via your PayPal account when you sign up to PC perks subscription [which gives you ongoing discounts + free shipping]. If you had to try just one [although I’m positive you’ll want the whole range too] is the micro-dermabrasion paste. I use it 3 times a week + it’s like a mini facial!. If you want to get your hands on some samples Emma can help you out with
Our little Honey's last day of school for the year! I can't believe it, year 2 next year! For their last day, they are to dress for what they want to be when they grow up..her reply, a Doctor..a VET to be exact 🙊 isn't she the cutest! She has a heart of gold...of course she wants to help others 💕💕💕
Last day of school for 2018! Skylar is having her Christmas party and well... her mama always has to go OTT.... hence her outfit. She was beyond happy with her little rudolf look. I also am so chuffed the shirts I got her last year from @luckylittle_za still fit perfectly (I bought them a size up on purpose).
LIGHT. JOY. EMPOWERING. ✨ Last week I asked you to come up with three power words. I seriously loveeeddd reading all of yours, but some of you said you needed time to find them. Time to think about these words, that described YOU.
So this is me checking in, what are they? What describes you + powers you? Mine are at the beginning + it took me some time to find mine. That’s ok, but if you said you needed to think about it, let’s jump in. Comment below with yours!
We put her little tree in her room the other day (it’s my old American Girl tree from when I was little), and now she keeps saying “I love my Christmas tree!” And just look at that face: it says it all. She is so proud of it. 😍🎄 Oh, Sophie girl, we just love YOU!!! #ohchristmastree ❤️ http://liketk.it/2yP0o #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKkids || prettiest watercolor by the talented @hillaryproctorstudio 💕

S H O P P I N G // with a toddler.
I usually avoid shopping centers like the plague but there is something adorable about your mini pushing a mini toddler.
Not so sure other peoples ankles agree though, right Kari?
Aside from having snacks on hand or leaving them at home - what do you do to make shopping with a toddler easier?
I walked into the living room earlier and he was using his binoculars to stare out our giant window at the geese family by the lake 🦢Or spying on the neighbors 🤔🤣 but the geese thing sounds better. What are some funny things your littles have done? #whilewyattistwo
After a rocky start to Prep (those who have been with me since the start of the year will know we had issues with physical bullying towards Bébé in Term 1) the boy who made us parents learnt to love school again, and flourished. It has been such a joy to watch him grow and learn, Bébé has always loved us to read him books and now he reads them to us and his brother, and writes his own stories as well. Most afternoons he can be found writing love notes to us, or creating detailed drawings. It’s amazing what big changes can happen in such small time frames at this age, swipe to see first day of Prep Vs last day of Prep 😭

Lucia Day - my dad flew in yesterday for the holiday and today we celebrated Lucia with fika and music from the Gothenburg’s cathedral’s Lucia performance. Everyone is happy to have morfar back, especially Enid who is taking advantage of the extra helping hand (and he’s already read about 20 books with her per her request 📖😆), #morfarisback#lucia
Waking up next to him is like Christmas morning everyday. He keeps life exciting, encourages me, loves me, cherishes me, uplifts me, and values me- he’s better than anything I could ever put on a Christmas list and I’m so thankful to get to spend this glorious time of year with him by my side❤️He is the gift that gives back, Just like for every Raw Sugar product sold @RawSugarLiving donates a bar of soap to a family in need.

What are some of your families holiday traditions?
Some of ours (Melissa’s family) are decorating the Christmas tree all together, making gingerbread houses (the girls like to eat the candy 😉), having breakfast with Santa and the girls make a new ornament for the tree.
This year we will hopefully be adding newborn snuggles to the list.
