Kylee’s breakfast. There’s another half that’s hopefully in the garbage, but in reality it’s probably way under the couch or behind some weird shelf somewhere and I’ll find it petrified in a few months 😂 Kids I tell ya...
S E V E N months. Mr. cheeks is 7 months old today! The time just keeps flying by with this sweet boy. He is officially sitting up unassisted with only the occasional wobble over. He is a mama’s boy through and through and I wouldn’t have it any other way!! Those cheeks are as kissable as they look too 😏😘 I am behind on his update on the blog and determined to write both his 6&7 month entries. Mostly because I have yet to get my act together and make baby books so this helps me look back and when I do get around to it I can use those to reference 🙈
I was telling a friend recently that Shaylin has gotten to the point where I can no longer carry her. And it’s true, I can’t lift her at all. But if she goes on a step behind me, I can carry her on my back...for oh about 2.5 seconds. Just long enough to snap this picture before we fall to the ground! 😂 Happy Friday everyone! #firstborn#toobigtocarry#fridayfunnies
Couldn't be more chuffed to be working for a company that understands how important it is to PAY IT FORWARD into local communities!
On Thursday all the crew at @uonptyltd gathered for our Secret Santa with a twist! We all received a gift in the form of something for a child and had the delight in opening it, but then got to donate these gifts back into the community with a donation to Starting Over Support (SOS) a community initiative that helps families escaping crisis situations in Perth. Inner Child got a revisit and actual families will benefit!
That very first look ✨
I don’t remember a whole lot about those newborn months (thanks to sleep deprivation), but I do oh so clearly remember this moment. I remember you being placed on my chest, I looked at your dad in disbelief that you were actually here, I remember your grandmother crying and saying to me “you did it, look at what you did, she is here”. And then I stared at you. Doctors, midwives, paediatricians rushing around us, checking on you and fixing me. But in that moment, it felt like none of it mattered and all I needed to do was look at you, looking at me. Trying to figure each other out, studying each other’s faces. In that moment, I knew I was meant to be your mother. There have been many moments since then, that I have doubted my abilities and questioned so many things. But whenever we have a quiet moment and I look at you, it reminds me that we have made it already made it through 9 very long months of pregnancy together and almost 15 months of navigating through so many firsts and unknown moments. I am so glad I have got to do it all with you by my side, Audrey girl ♥️
The middle journal says, "Peace begins with me." ✌🏼 I'm learning that if we choose to be at peace (which takes work, prayer, and patience), others around us start to feel calm as well, and the chaos fades away. I reviewed these three beautiful devotional journals on my blog today - they're full of Scripture and space to write - and I can't wait to start one in the New Year! #newyearnewdevo#ellieclairegifts
We had the best day today, doing nothing at all together. There weren’t nearly as many arguments today as most days , I got all my work done, we made cookies and we went for a long bike ride to the park.
This year we expanded our family...so we had to expand our ride as well! (AD)
In 2019 we’ll probably have to expand our living arrangements too...we’ve pretty much outgrown our current house! 🏡😮
Soooo obviously we will need to save quite a bit in 2019...and quickly! 💰💰💰
Today on the blog we’re talking ways to save money faster - click link in bio for ways to meet your goals this year with @regionsbank 👈🏻
Hi friends! It’s been a while since I’ve done a #fridayintroductions !
Hi! I’m Piper! I’m married to my main squeeze Wyatt. We grew up together and now live “happily ever after”, of course we’ve had our raw moments of grief and growth, but overall, he’s the one my soul loves. Opal, if you’ve seen her cute face on here, she’s 19 months old and pure spunk and shine! I adore her and feel so grateful to be her mama (even amidst the sleepless nights and tantrums we’re entering- there’s nothing quite like this kind of love). I’m a firm believer in speaking truth over being a people pleaser and honestly I really don’t like sugary treats, I’d much rather something salty! I have a #youtube channel aimed toward lifestyle and heart to hearts. I am going to be attending Nutritional Therapy School beginning, February (SURPRISE!), to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. I’m learning so much about health through having type 1 diabetes. I’m sure that nothing can be done in fulfillment outside of God. All to Him I owe. This is bits and pieces of the life we live and the life we aim to build! Now, I’d love to know about YOU. Tell me something very few people know about you!
Exactly a year ago from today. This is the same outfit I wore when I was full term pregnant. (Except the pants, because those were maternity pants before). A year ago today, I was crazy to work 3 days before I gave birth. Did I regret it? No. Would I do it again? Probably yes. Lol. @hula.girl.at.heart stopped me from going to work the next day, because I was too optimistic thinking it's only ONE day.
Well that ONE day changed my life. I've been doing my labor mostly at home, and when it's night time, time to admit myself to the hospital! It's crazy that so much had happened in such an instant, that a year today, I have a happy, active and energetic boy @itsmr.luke!
Now, I can't believe my baby boy is becoming a toddler! In 3 days, he'll be ONE and man, motherhood is a trip. At first it is hard, but now, both @hugaso7 and I are enjoying every minute, every second of it! I cannot wait to see what our family has to offer in the next years!
Happy early birthday, my lil nugget! 😘👩👦🎂💖 #oneyearagotoday
P.S: Holy cow, I never realized how huge I was. Lmao
I hope things are Merry and Bright around your house today! I’m 34 today, and for my birthday we’re skipping school, watching the Great British Baking Holiday Show, and making brownies.😊 Thanks to @savspald for this beautiful picture, lots of mommy-and-me cuteness over there!❄️💙
Yesterday, I was holding this sweet boy on my lap by the Christmas tree and listening to worship music. And he would just sit on my lap for hours and be content. And he does this thing where he turns his little head as much as he can just so he could see me. And every time he does he grins the cutest grin. Now that little grin is a toothy grin, he has one baby tooth and it’s the cutest thing ever. So I just turned him towards me and wrapped him up in the biggest hug and planted kisses all over his sweet face and the whole time he just squealed in delight. It made my heart feel like it’ll explode. In one moment, when I was feeling worn out, sad, lonely and all the exhausted mom feelings, he managed to simply just smile and I couldn’t help but feel so much joy and love from that face so I started to cry ugly tears but they weren’t sad, they were so stinkin happy. So crazy happy because this little boy wasn’t planned and I remember being terrified of having a baby so soon after my last but God has such huge plans with this one and I couldn’t imagine my day without him. He’s my sunshine every day, rain or shine. And I can’t wait to see him grow into the most amazing man❤️ •
I was so stocked when @DockATot sent over one of their baby loungers, we have been using it a ton for James and he loves it! It’s so nice to have a portable place to put him down around our apartment, the handles help when my hands are full and the fact that it’s been tested for breathability lets my mind rest easier when his big sister steals me away (which is often). If you’re interested in getting one, use code JESSICAG10 for 10% off! #DockATot#BabyMustHaves#ForMaxBabyLounging#HiJamesBeau
