Mishika finally turned 11 months old!! 😊🤗🤗 I cant believe how fast time flew by. I remember last year during this time I was heavy and could hardly walk around and eagerly waiting for Mishika to arrive🤰. Fast forward to today, she is soon turning one! 🙈🙈💕 I hope she always remembers that she is so loved by everyone and Mayank & I feel beyond blessed to have her!! ❤️
Biggest milestone this month - She can walk 🤩😁💃🏻💃🏻
Favorite game so far - Throw throw ball
Favorite food 🥘- Anything that her parents are eating 😂
One thing that gets her overly excited - Run towards the stairs and try to climb them when no one is watching 🙈🙈 (we are so behind in baby proofing our home 😅)
One habit that she is determined not to change - Loves her parents bedroom (yeah all sleep training failed 🤫🤫)
Love you dear 😘 , can’t wait to celebrate 🎊 🎉 you turning one this Halloween 🎃 🎂 🎈
Sometimes I wish life would just stand still for a minute.
The one constant in life is change.
It's constantly shifting. Moving. Recreating itself.
There's so much going on in the world today, we have so many more things to respond to.
People wanting things from us.
So many shoulds and big shoes to fill.
Was I just imagining it or did life seem somehow simpler back in the 80's and 90's?? I swear there was less pressure, less shit to keep up with in the era that I grew up in.
In today's age and world, there's so much pressure, to be something, do something, raise kids who fulfill 1000 conditions.
My kids have grown so fast, the last 14 years have flown by in so many ways. I just need time to slow down a little, to stop them from growing so fast, so I have a little more time to enjoy them.
I know it's crazy to want that.
I know it's not possible.
I know we can't turn back the clock.
But I oh so wish it would.
Time moves so fast.
It's a different life to live these days.
I hope we can find ways to slow down time. Go back a little bit to the simpler life.
Where we had friends that were like family.
When we followed our hearts instead of all the shoulds society puts on us.

From the moment I first held my nephew he conquered every corner of my heart ♡
From the moment I took the role of step-mummy to beautiful Amelia I knew I was blessed ♡
I try so hard everyday to be the best role model, inspiration and support for these two... everything I do is to make sure I can give them the best things in life and will show them everyday how much they are loved ♡
Cannot believe how quick they have grown up 😱 time moves fast so take the time to appreciate what you have around you.... everything else can wait 🙏🏼 #proudaunty ❤️ #proudstepmummy#blessed 🙌 #nothingbeatstheseroles#timemovesfast#coparentingatitsfinest#rolemodel#inspiration#buildalegacy#lookathowlittletheywere 😢
Can you believe how fast this year is going? Those of you who have followed us since the start of the year may remember the garden calendars that we brought out, but due to issues with my supplier, we had to temporarily remove them. But fear not, they are coming back soon! Watch this space!
From the moment you hold your baby in your arms,
You will never be the same.
You might long for the person you were before,
When you had freedom and time,
And nothing in particular to worry about.
You will know tiredness like you never knew it before,
And days will run into days that are exactly the same,
Full of feeding and burping,
Whining and fighting,
Naps, or lack of naps. It might seem like a never-ending cycle.
But don't forget... There is a last time for everything.
There will come a time when you will feed your baby
for the very last time.
They will fall asleep on you after a long day
And it will be the last time you ever hold your sleeping child.
One day you will carry them on your hip,
then set them down,
And never pick them up that way again.
You will scrub their hair in the bath one night
And from that day on they will want to bathe alone.
They will hold your hand to cross the road,
Then never reach for it again.
They will creep into your room at midnight for cuddles,
And it will be the last night you ever wake for this.
One afternoon you will sing 'the wheels on the bus'
and do all the actions,
Then you'll never sing that song again.
They will kiss you goodbye at the school gate,
the next day they will ask to walk to the gate alone.
You will read a final bedtime story and wipe your
last dirty face.
They will one day run to you with arms raised,
for the very last time.
The thing is, you won't even know it's the last time
until there are no more times, and even then,
it will take you a while to realise.
So while you are living in these times,
remember there are only so many of them and
when they are gone,
you will yearn for just one more day of them
For one last time.
8 months today, can you believe it?! Now I know she’s not wearing a Bandana Bib for this photo shoot but I had to catch some of these precious moments and she’s still just as cute 😍. I’ve decided that time moves quicker with the second child. Maybe it’s the change of pace (trying to keep up with the first one) or my attention is more spread, but 8 months has gone by so quickly. I try to keep up but no avail.
I told my son, “Sweet Tea is 8 months today!” He says, “I’m still three...” (disappointed).
“Yes, my son, you are still three and enjoy it! Adulting will come soon enough when time passes quickly and life, somehow, gets harder.” Enjoy the moments: the sleepless moments, the cuddle moments, the fits, and everything in between.
When I was a kid the Photographer who shot JFK Jr's wedding to Caroline Bassette Kennedy was on Oprah. He described the intimacy of their small Georgia Chapel ceremony for 40 and the moment that he caught JFK, unexpectedly, take Caroline's hand and kiss it on the stairs. He, the Photographer, said how he knew in that moment the significance of the picture he had caught. Today, after their deaths that image is a defining picture that resonates in 'The Best Celebrity Weddings of All Time' iconography....Caroline's dress and her style helped define the moment. Her gown designed by Narciso Rodriguez at Calvin Klein defined American Style, women in politics, and the luxury it is to be perfectly polished and casual...Our dress, inspired by this moment could not be more than that: Inspired. Whimsy, the juxtaposition of a little girls idea of a wedding, a grown up perspective, and a mature design process allowed for this shoot to happen... We shot at The Carriage Barn at The Frog Pond in Skaneateles, NY. @beccahowlandphotography was the Photographer. @_feepee was our model and did her own hair and MUA. @conicopia provided the handmade bracelet. @terrarosaithaca provided us our invitation suite. @peggysuethorpe supplied us with our cameo wedding ring, and @racquelitarica of Sinfully Delicious made us an awesome cake (elderflower blueberry lemon) with flowers supplied by @flowersmithfarm. The Kennedy Gown is part of our Louisa March Collection. The garter and headpiece was made by us @gee.june.bridal...
