On Sunday, I celebrated my 25th birthday. I had no grand plans, wishlist, or annoying countdown and for the first time, I didn’t wake my husband by jumping on the bed, shouting, “it’s my birthday!” Instead, Eli and I sat out in the sun, sipping on tea and reflecting on the year. It all started to dawn on me how unhappy I had become, how frustrated, angry and anxious I had been for the better part of the year, but how all the recent challenges that I continue to face had helped me become more like the mom, wife and person I had dreamt of being. Last night, I wrote a long post about where I am, what I've been doing and how looking back, I'm able to connect the dots and make sense of everything.

Well you can guess by this picture who things she mummy favourite!!! When you have your first baby you fall totally in love, I personally did not know love like it, it felt as if my heart was going to explode! When I was carrying the twins in kept thinking will I love them just much? How can that be possible? But your heart has a great way of making more room, these three are my whole world, and made me such a better person by just been their mummy #mummylove
We made it as a family through the first month! She is so strong! And grew so much! We are amazed every time she does something new we fall in love with her all over again!
She currently loves milk 🥛 (she gets a little milk drunk now & then, bath 🛀 time, sleeping with mommy- at first I was against co-sleeping but that changed very quick after the 3rd-ish day she was home with us 😝(Now we are transitioning back to bassinet), & taking long naps when she can laugh and smile in her dreams. 💕
-[H A P P Y W E E K E N D !]- Back from vacay and straight to laundry day- ughh my least favourite house chore. We wear a lot of whites in this household and things can get pretty messy with Baby Emm around. We’ve only been back a couple of days and I’ve already dealt with 3 POO explosions 🙃🙃🙃
But thanks to White King bleach the mess on our whites are easily manageable. Lesser time on laundry and more time with this cheeky girl ❤️ #mywhitekingmoment

Kommentiere mit 🙋🏻♀️Bitte beachte: Wir lieben Profile die Ihre Kinder zeigen und jeder muss das für sich und sein Kind selbst entscheiden❤️. Wir haben uns aus den oben genannten Gründen dagegen entschieden. Es gibt einige Möglichkeiten sein Kind nicht zu zeigen und das macht es besonders: mit einem Wasserzeichen, mit einem Filter der das Gesicht verschwimmt, nur einen Ausschnitt.
.Hier geht es auch drum neue Profile zufinden und eine Community aufzubauen die genauso denkt wie wir. Der Hashtag wurde am 26.Juni ins Leben gerufen und hat schon über 2.500 Nutzer.

Product Review Friday!
So I've seen alot of adverts about these immune boosters @immunoboosters all over social media and stuff. I thought why not try it out. It's packet with all the vitamins and nutrients your child needs. I know alot of moms who give one to their child everyday and the kids love it, why wouldn't they it's a biscuit chocolate and the mommy is happy because its packed with everything the child needs. However my kids didn't take to it. They found the chocolate too sour & refused to have any more the next day.
But I'm sure alot of kids would love it & moms should try it out for their kids because it's got great ingredients exactly what were always looking for.

On weekdays, I go on a sort-of diet. I say 'sort of' because I'm not on a super strict hardcore diet since I breastfeed, which means: a) I'm always hungry and b) I need to eat (for me and my baby). But the one thing I can't live without and can't give up? SWEETS!!! My compromise is that I don't eat sweets during weekdays EXCEPT for lactation cookies. If I'm going to eat sweets, it might as well be something that's good for my milk supply, right? @mamabeartreats' cookies are made with only brown and coco sugar and contains 20% less sugar than what the recipe originally requires so it's a great choice for mamas (or dadas and non-mamas) who are trying to watch their weight. In that case, I don't feel so bad for indulging! 😊❤ Thank you for sending these over, @mamabeartreats!!!
