I don’t know about you, but this summer has COMPLETELY thrown me off my game.  I am a girl who functions BEST on routine and needs a schedule or I just won’t DO the things I know I need to do. 😖 
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE long, slow mornings  without rushing out the door to school, packing lunches or a million pickups! 
But now that it’s July, I am READY to at least get my health game back on track.  I wanted to let you know  what I’m doing in case you are as ready as I am (or at least know you need to) focus on your health again. ❤️TODAY I started my exclusive VIP group for our brand new program. Today is DAY 1!  We are doing the BRAND NEW LIIFT and HIIT program (only 4 days/week for 30-40 minutes/day) and we would LOVE to join forces with you, transform with you, and most importantly help YOU feel amazing!

Want in?  Let me know(PM me) or just gimme a ❤️ Below and we can chat to see if this is for you. 💕💕💕

I do it for me yes, but I do it for her too.
-
For her to see you can be healthy and strong. For her to see you can embrace your body and to see how strong your legs and arms can be. To show her moms can haul groceries and lift babies and hike and climb. We can grab the wagon down from the garage and open tomato sauce jars. To show her that she too doesn’t need to strive to be a model on the cover of magazines, but should strive to FEEL GOOD.
-
And we’re all feeling good and proud after day one! -
I do it for me, but I do it for her too.

E V E R M O R E  L I V I N G 🌿 This was the quiet scene in the house after dinner earlier last week. Not tonight though... but that’s another story all together 🤦🏻‍♀️☺️ In other news, Avalee has decided she no longer needs guitar lessons because she ‘already knows all about playing guitars’ .  Kids are funny sometimes. @jjeanettet  you better come visit and help us out. 🙃👏👏

Recently I feel defeated.  It turns out that my #pregnancy hormones are peaking and my body needs shots of insulin to keep my blood sugar levels low— despite my #healthyeating. When my doctor told me this, I felt like I had failed my #babies. And it just added to the frustration I’ve felt throughout this pregnancy. It seems as though my body has completely resisted this pregnancy from the start. I was on bed rest for about 5 months due to #hyperemesis (extreme puking and nausea) and now I’m struggling to manage my gestational diabetes. I know there are a lot of women who love being pregnant, but I am not one of those women. Majority of the time I feel like my body is failing, and there is nothing in my control to stop it. But I have been trying convince myself that maybe this was a #lifelesson - that not much is truly in your control...that maybe control was an illusion. It’s a hard lesson to accept, but maybe these extreme situations are necessary for the lesson to stick. So I decided to celebrate the not so great news by making some non keto sweets - #glutenfree #cupcakes. These are my guilty pleasures!! I hope you get a chance to make this.  Let me know what you think? Also, I plan to continue to eat healthy but I also believe that sometimes you need a good cupcake to cheer you up every once in awhile. Also, I absolutely have to share the frosting recipe!! More to come later...

This is our ‘normal’ at the moment. (Well, sort of🙃) Just the three of us. We can both give our attention and energy whenever it is needed to this beautiful little being. But a shift is about to happen, there will soon be another member of our family. 2 babies to love. 2 mouths to feed. 2 bodies to bathe. 2 bums to wipe. 2 souls to comfort. 2. It’s amazingly terrifying how much life has changed in just 2 short years. There are hard days, scary realizations and overwhelming thoughts of how it’s all about to change again. The only way to push through it all is the love. The mind-blowing, life-altering, soul-expanding LOVE ❤️ #34weekspregnant

Another photo from our trip to the petting zoo on his birthday. This little dude is currently sick with a fever and has been throwing up/napping on and off all day. Must have partied too hard yesterday at his birthday party. .

Sometimes as parents, or as teachers, we say things to children with the best of intentions. Phrases that we think will help them, or teach them an important message. But sometimes those phrases backfire. They have the opposite effect to the one intended. This post is the first in what will be a series about communicating more mindfully with children, so we can avoid unintentionally ‘fueling the fire’ with our words.

First up, is “calm down”! I’m guilty of saying this to my children too. It tends to come out automatically when we’re faced with a distressed child doesn’t it?! It’s natural for us to want them to stop crying. We don’t like hearing or seeing our children upset. This is a normal response! But what’s the problem with “Calm down”? Well, a lot of the time, a child is simply unable to do it. We’re setting them up for failure. Young children in particular, simply don’t know how to calm themselves down. Their brains aren’t capable of this kind of self regulation yet. They need help from us. They need us to show them how to calm down - this is how they learn to do it.

The other unintentional message we can send children when we tell them to calm down, especially if the message is “talk to me once you’ve calmed down!”, is that we don’t want to see them when they are feeling sad - that we can’t handle these big feelings of theirs and we only want to see them happy. They learn that feeling sad is a bad thing. And that big feelings are scary and unmanageable. The grown ups don’t like it.

In reality, if we want to teach a child how to regulate their emotions effectively, the message they need to hear from us is that all emotions are ok. That they can come to us with whatever they are feeling. That the feeling will pass and they have the skills to manage it.

So next time your child is distressed, try to fight the urge to tell them to calm down, and instead, offer to help them. Try something like, “I can see you’re upset and you want to tell me what’s wrong. Let’s take a big breath together and see if it helps you to calm down.” What do you think? Is this something you could try? Let me know if you do!

After a little hiatus, due to life getting so crazy, I'm jumping back in with a new program that only requires 4 days of the week and 30-40 minutes of my time! 
It is everything for this busy mama! Today was the first day, and though I nearly died. I made it through! With my niece intensely watching lol! 
I know I am going  to be so sore tomorrow!

My name is Christie I’m a married to a lineman and hunter/outdoors man, girl mom of a careful 3 year old and reckless 1 year old and I prefer to stay behind the camera rather than in front of it.⠀
⠀
I’m living my dream as a newborn and family photographer in northeast Ohio all because of my husband, Drew, pushed and believed in me.⠀
⠀
Navigating motherhood after baby number two was a pretty rocky road. All the signs of life were screaming at me to slow down, but I didn’t see that until my he sat me down and told me our life couldn’t continue down this path.⠀
⠀
I [very] reluctantly left my day job to focus on our family and my business. At this point, we are both questioning why it took so long for us to take that leap! It’s not been an easy path by any means, but life has been so much sweeter. For the first time in my life, my work/life balance has more life than work and being present with my girls and having so much more time together as a family is the biggest blessing I could have hoped for.⠀
⠀
Today, I’m not a “photographer, but...” or a “photographer and...”. I’ve [officially] been a Newborn and Family Photographer for SIX whole months.⠀
⠀
Dreams do come true! ✨⠀

Iris had her two month checkup today. She is in the 50th percentile for weight and in the 95th percentile for height! She also had to get shots :( But she was so tough! And afterwards, Hazel gave her a hug and said “It’s ok Iris”. 💗 // @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/2wAnS #liketkit @liketoknow.it.family #LTKfamily  #LTKkids

Well bedtime can’t go smoothly every night so I’m over here with a glass of wine like, “it’s @amazon #PrimeDay, but that site is down so what do I still need from @nordstrom!? Shopping will make everything better!” 😂🍷

Meal plan going well so far! We grilled lots of extra chicken last night to have for the week and it was just as delicious today. Fresh grilled balsamic chicken is probably one of my favorite foods ever.

On another note - switched up my usual LaCroix for @bublywater and actually really liking it! Has anyone ever tried it? What are your favorite flavors?💧

They are always holding hands, playing and giving kisses. I love their bond. 
I always worried the more children I have, if there would be less love for each of them.... boy was I wrong. 
The love just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

I grew up with just my brother and having an extremely small distant family. I always knew I wanted to have lots of babies because I wanted to have a big family reunions and have my babies around the table with their babies ✨

I got a little emotional today after my workout, and it caught me off guard. I started this journey by myself (and along with my semi- willing husband) 3.5 years ago. Today in my group, I watched as woman after woman commented on how much they loved day 1, how excited they were to only workout 4 days a week, and it just made my heart so full. People have this idea that doing at home workouts must be lonely, but that can’t be further from the truth in my experience. When you are in the group, you are family. It doesn’t matter that I’ve never met some of these women in person, we are in this together!

Ice cream for three. I bought these vintage amber bowls to add to the shop. I washed them yesterday and had them drying on a towel on the kitchen counter. This afternoon, my six year old daughter picked one up and talked about how beautiful it was. I put their ice cream in them tonight and their hands held them so carefully. I want to trust their tiny hands with delicate little bowls more often ✨

The queen is 3! Thank you so much to everyone that came and celebrated our sweet girl! It was such a fun day! .. I'm definitely paying for it today. 35 weeks and throwing a party in this heat.. not my smartest idea.

I choose to share my wellness journey but I don’t share my entire life here. The last 16 months have been an incredibly challenging season for me. I landed at the light at the end of the tunnel of a hard and emotionally draining season in my life. I wanted to at least share these thoughts. If you are going through an incredibly difficult time, I want to encourage you to keep going. To keep taking things day by day and step by step. There have been moments where I really did not understand this hard season but I am so glad that I have trusted the process . I am incredibly grateful for the love and support of those around me most especially my husband, family and close friends. Not every season of life is easy, but I promise you you’ll see the worth in sticking through it. I promise you there will be a light at the end of the tunnel and I am sending you positive thoughts ❤️Happy Monday IG friends. I hope that you are living a life of intent and purpose and remember that “this too shall pass” it may just take a little more time than you expected.

Have you ever had one of those days where you just feel like a failure? Literally like a crappy parent? 👋🏼😕 Today is that day for this momma. From feeling guilty for letting her skip a nap to feeling even SHITTIER for not being able to console her after 45 minutes of crying and literally just walking out of her room mid-meltdown because I was just at a loss of what to do. 🤷🏻‍♀️ The mom-guilt is insane and HEAVY. . .
I’ve never felt like a “bad mom” or like I’ve “half-assed”anything since my daughter was born, so I’m not sure why today is weighing on me particularly heavy, but it just is. 😔I know we strive for perfection or as close to it as possible as parents, but damn, when we fail (or at least feel like we’re failing)it hurts. It hurts and sucks worse when I feel I can’t fix what’s wrong or make her immediately feel better. 😞 Anyone less deal with this? .

This week I am hitting the pause button. .
.
This past week was so busy I finally hit a wall last night. Today I stayed home all day in my glasses and pajamas and just loved on my kids. There were lots of hugs, kisses, painting, reading, playing, being outside, and then we all took a 3 hour nap! Not so bad for a lazy summer Monday! .
.
For my own physical, emotional, nutritional, and mental health I’ll be doing more of the same all week. Except for work that I can’t miss, I have cancelled everything else on my schedule. I typically thrive on being busy but this week I’m slowing down and focusing on the family!

Teach your kids the things you think may be too difficult for them to grasp. 
Like how to poach an egg or engage in genuine conversation with someone 8 times their age. Or the right way to inquire about someone’s differences while still making sure they know that those differences are just another way to celebrate God’s creativity. 
Or to understand the difference between financial assets and liabilities long before they reach high school. 
Or how to read Shakespeare in 2nd grade. 
Or how to take pictures with a camera on the manual setting and make their mama feel like the most beautiful woman in the world because they looked you right in the eyes and told you so. 
Teach them the hard stuff. It’ll be well worth your time. 
PS the second picture has been deemed his “creme de la creme”.
I’m going to print and frame it for him so he’ll always remember that on most days his mom is pretty awesome.

To say I’m thankful for these AMAZING people is an understatement!
.
Sometimes I can’t believe that ALL of us have built successful business from the ground up!🙌🙌
.
Never in the world did I think I would be an entrepreneur, let alone one on social media!!! Seriously, I was the SHYEST of shy’s growing up!
.
Plus, I followed all the rules...I went to college TWICE! Graduated with TWO degrees, did everything right, got an amazing nursing job, but I still just wasn’t fully happy. I felt like something was missing...
.
So I took a leap of faith, and when I say a leap of faith, I jumped in eyes closed, totally shaking because I was terrified!!! But I knew I had to follow my PASSION and help people live happier and healthier lives like this had helped me.💕
.
Nope, people didn’t get it in the beginning...but I did!!!! I knew what this business could be, what this community could be...everything I had been looking for!
.
So today I have to reflect on how far I’ve come, from BEYOND terrified to  the mom I never dreamed I could be! From the girl with a few friends to the girl with an AMAZING community of women to support me everyday!!!
.
This business is REAL and if you let it, it can change EVERY aspect of your life! You interested???
.
Want to learn about joining our amazing tribe?? Looking for a community to support you??

We have a sitting baby! 😍🙌🏼
.
Jo has refused to sit up by herself for several months now, so I pretty much gave up trying to make her and hoped she would figure it out in her own time. Within the past couple of days, she has started going from her stomach into a sitting position all by herself, and while there has been quite a bit of leaning on her arms, she has started using her core muscles for several seconds at a time yesterday and today! It is seriously so crazy, exciting, and a little scary to look over and see my baby sitting up! It’s convinced me, once again, how important her independent floor playtime really is! 💪🏼💃🏻

It’s convinced me, once again, how important her independent floor playtime really is! 💪🏼💃🏻 . . . . . #thatplacewecallhome  #babyphotoshoot  #joyfulmamas  #legitmomstyle  #motherhoodinspired  #motherhoodco  #motherhoodinstyle  #momliferocks  #inspirationintheeveryday  #dailymotherhood  #rawmotherhood  #candidmotherhood  #momsirl  #thisismotherhood  #unitedmotherhood  #slowmotherhood  #bloggermom  #modernmom  #candidchildhood  #littleandbrave  #letthembelittle  #childhoodunplugged  #thehappynow  #mytinymoments  #acupofmotherhood  #mynameismama  #lifeasmama  #myhonestmotherhood  #motherhoodthroughig  #littlepiecesofchildhood 
Every detail of this little guy’s nursery is just flawless. It’s a peaceful bohemian haven and I can’t wait to watch the memories he makes here! .

How many of you have toddlers or children that just do not seem to listen to you even though you have told them the same thing more then 4 times in one hour?  It is one of the challenges that triggers me like no other, especially when my child is going through a testing boundary phase.  I recently went on a journey to find parenting techniques that resonate with me that I could look to when I had no idea how to shift a cycle that was not working.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I realize that there are many different ways to parent out there and that not everything works for every parent or child.  This is a simple practice that works for us and I notice a difference right away.  I was not aware of the fact that when I was asking kids to do something… or not do something, I was not communicating in a way that caters to the way a child’s brain works.  I would say things like “We don’t hit other people” or “Let’s get ready for bed, ok?” Seems harmless right?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Well, a good friend turned me onto @janetlansbury.  She suggests using clearly defined statements such as “I want you to /I don’t want you to” or “I need you to/I can’t let you” or “I won’t let you”. As soon as I change my communication to the above examples, the listening shifts. I go from feeling like I am not being heard, to my kiddo being willing to follow my directions.  It literally blows my mind every time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I still catch myself using my old ways of saying things and a lot of times I will change the statement right then.  Like if I say, “Let’s get your shoes on, ok?” I will say, “Let me rephrase that, I need you to put your shoes on”. It is always a work in progress, right?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Finding support and ways of parenting that resonate with me has saved my life through this parenting journey and has given me hope during times of frustration.  Who are the people, books, etc that you turn to during these times?

The best things in life are the people we love, the places we’ve been, and the memories we make along the way 💕

This weekend was filled with lots of plans and so many memories. Yesterday, we got to take Graham to his first water park. These precious memories with him are everything to me and I LOVE watching these two together. My #mancrusheveryday is the best daddy to our little G! And One of my favorite things about having our son is that we get to act like kids again!! .
How about you?! What fun things do you get to do with your kids that you secretly enjoy just as much?? 😉

This week a bunch of my friends that like to work out, stay connected and motivated, eat healthy, and grow on a personal level started this amazing 8 week journey! I was missing my creative teacher personality so I mentioned we should do a spirit week to get things rolling!
Do you remember the days in elementary and high school of dressing up during the fun festivities?! Well that’s exactly what I wanted the kick off week to be! So today was wear your favorite tank top that has a motivational quote on it!
This is by far my most favorite quote! “success is not above you!” There could not be a more true statement! 
Feeling successful is not out of your reach! The only thing that makes it out of reach is by not taking action sitting on the sidelines!
I have been there before, so i know how it feels! But as soon as I took that initial step i knew this is what I wanted my life to be! 
You don’t have to be alone taking that initial step! There are about 180 other women doing it too!

It’s been one heck of a day over here.

Trace left for the airport before the sun was up and he’ll be gone for the week. Of course, Michael picked last night to start uncontrollably crying and hasn’t really stopped since. (Hungry? teething? gassy? tired? all of the above?) Neither me nor Michael have slept, and none of the usual things were working- wasn’t hungry, didn’t want his pacifier, gripe water isn’t working, teethers weren’t cutting it, teething gel wasn’t helping, diaper changes made it worse, the swing made him scream... all he wanted was to be strapped to my chest while I paced back and forth.

I finally gave him some infant Tylenol and he calmed down enough to nurse and take a nap (without me wearing him). All this to say, I don’t know how mamas did it before modern medicine and I am so impressed by single mamas who do it all themselves (to say y’all are strong is an understatement). I was just about at wits end over here and it hasn’t even been a full day since Trace left. AND I only have one baby.

Now to sit in a corner and cry for a few minutes and try to catch my breath over some hot coffee. #deepbreathsmama #michaelthefourth #thisismotherhood

Currently helping him thoroughly clean his room and quickly realizing... 🅰️ I should stick to cleaning his room when he isn’t home. 🅱️ I deeply regret explaining what sentimental means. 😏#butMomItsSENTIMENTAL 😫 #ohBenny #according2Benny .

Some of us wear high tech running gear, others wear fleece sweatshirts and skirts. Who's to say who's right and who's wrong about what's the best running gear out there? The world may never know....

It’s been a while since I did a #ThrowbackThursday but o saw this picture of my son and I can’t believe he doesn’t need his Bumbo seat to help him sit up anymore! I don’t even remember how we went from this to where he is now! We still use this seat for feeding, especially on the go since it’s smaller than our high chair. 
Just look at that face! He was like “mom, I’ll sit up when I’m ready!” And that he did.
