Four years ago I was in the middle of a bunch of medical treatments. More specifically, an 8 month course of IV antibiotics. I would get 3 different antibiotics intravenously, 3 days a week. 2 weeks on 2 weeks off. Before the IVs , they had me on oral antibiotics and other random pharmaceuticals for 1.5 years. It was a fucking brutal experience. Every single part of my life was affected. I lost my job. I lost 75% of my friends. My health deteriorated in a terrifying way and my mind turned to mush. I was reduced to a shell of who I was. Unfortunately at that point in my health journey I wasn't educated enough to know that the antibiotics were destroying me. But I had to go through it to learn it. I lasted through 5 months of the IVs. One day during a session my intuition did something so intense. I can't explain it so I wont try. I left my Doctors and never went back. Within a week I went to Maui. I stayed for 5 weeks. I had some profound experiences and I detoxed from the drugs. It set me on a path of education that has changed my life. But the whole point of this story is that I sat on a certain beach everyday and I prayed to God that I would have a son. 5 months later I got pregnant. And that's my story with Owen. He's my fucking miracle.
This is us, on Maui the following year
How is my little baby 6 months old today? I can’t believe it 😂❤️ I didn’t think I would be feeling emotional but I am. Maci, you’re my best friend, my mini me and I can’t wait to see what other adventures we have coming our way. You’re a little monster, you’re rolling constantly, you have six teeth, you love your dinner but most of all you love bouncing in your jumperoo. Genuinely can’t believe we’ve enjoyed you for 6 months already. #6monthsold#6monthsoldbaby
Everyone loves Yoga at Choklits! It’s a time for getting stretchy & moving our bodies. But we think the best thing about Yoga is that it is EVERY SINGLE FRIDAY at Choklits. That’s definitely something to look forward to!
I’ve received copious amounts of fan mail (one personal friend messaged me) asking for more recipes. And I aim to please the people. Therefore I will now share this intricate, multi-ingredient recipe for Creamy Citrus Salad Dressing:
One glob of hummus
A splatter of lemon juice
A healthy pour of olive oil
A splash of water
A sprinkle of salt
Whisk it all together

I was trying to recreate a pregnancy picture I’d taken and thought this would be a better representation of #mumlife instead 🤦🏻♀️
Ava is obsessed with touching, grabbing and pulling anything! She will literally rip your lip off if you let her (dad copped that one) can’t believe how quickly she’s growing 😱
Can’t get over that little smile 😍
We’ve had a busy couple of weeks with Christmas parties, birthdays and end-of-year events. Time is seriously flying by, this little guy will be six months old next week 😭😭😭

As today is Cayden's first birthday, it also marks the 366th day of my breastfeeding journey. From my initial goal of 6 months breastfeeding to surviving up to now, I am taught of perserverance and love by my son. Breastfeeding might come naturally for some people. That's not the case for me. I've been a low to okay supply mum. I've never been an oversupply one. For some, breastfeeding helps to lose weight. But I couldn't because I've been trying to boost up my yield with whatever milk booster I heard of.
I was diagnosed with difficulty to latch when I was in the hospital. I chose not to give up and continue to give the best for Cayden. I started learning to latch only when he was 2 months old. Went back to exclusive pumping when he was 7 months old as he started growing teeth. No matter how many times a day I pump, my supply has never been fantastic. But again, out of love, I continue giving what I can give.
Breastfeeding has cost me a lot of my time to the toil of my body. It was a journey full of blood and tears and pain. Am I tempted to stop? A lot of times. But my heart says no. Let me breastfeed a little longer, as long as I could for my baby ❤️
Biggest gratitude for daddy who has been supportive of the choice I make, whether to continue or to stop. Thank you!
MOTHERHOOD - Hard to totally define as everyone has their own unique experiences but for me I see it as a STRENGTH and ENERGY you never knew you had. A combination of raw emotions; LOVE, PRIDE, FEAR (mainly from breastfeeding lol). No matter your journey you are one strong mother 💪remember to cherish it, embrace it and to look after yourselves too! What is motherhood for you?
🖌Caro Babbo Natale ✏️
Scusami se ti disturbo in questo periodo in cui sei particolarmente indaffarato a materializzarti in ogni città e centro commerciale del mondo, a scattare foto con ogni singolo bambino del Pianete Terra, a smistare caramelle vegan e all’olio di palma e a leggere letterine di bimbi bravissimi anche se hanno mozzato la coda alla lucertola un minuto prima di scriverti l’elenco telefonico dei giochi che vorrebbero che tu portassi.
Ebbene, anche io avrei qualcosa da chiederti perché a parte l’urlo da orca assassina che puntualmente lancio tutti i giorni alla stessa ora per dividere i miei figli e, a parte l’abuso del tuo nome per ricattare i miei figli negli ultimi due mesi, credo di essere stata abbastanza buona.
Sarò breve. Intanto volevo ricordarti che aspetto ancora, da trent’anni circa, la casa di Barbie, perché ai tempi l’hai confusa con il Castello dei Masters dato che, giustamente, io ero in minoranza essendo l’unica sorella di due fratelli.
Ma passando a tempi più recenti, desidererei...

🌸Summer holidays with Harper Grace where there is sand everywhere, including in the mouth 😋She has become quite the little beach bum these holidays, with her shoes permanently on & running around with a sandy wet bottom. She's damn cute waddling around with water dripping down her legs & her nappy swelling up to three times the size 🍑#yumyum#beachdays#travellingwithkids
Every single day with you is a gift Bentley boy 😍 I hope you read my insta when you're 16. I write you a journal. But your life in pictures is pretty adorable little man. As much as you and brother are twins, equal and one.... you're also each so sweet in your own ways and I celebrate that too.
Once in a great while twins get their own pictures, their own cookie when the other one is busy doing something else, their own story with mama, or their own one-on-one snuggle. It's so rare but that makes it extra sweet❤ even with their seperate rooms they almost always wake up within a minute of each other, but once in a while I get that moment of mommy-and-me time when someone wakes up earlier and no matter what I was getting done during nap time, everything stops.
Love you B Man (Don't worry, I'm totally over the moon crazy about your brother too)
