"'Now Stop!' Nolie said and sent the wild things off to bed without their supper. And Nolie the queen of all wild things... wanted to be where someone loved her best of all." Ten months have raced by in a blur of fighting naps and so many kisses. Nolie is taking steps occasionally, talking from the time she wakes until she goes to sleep, and has recently become very good at vocalizing her opinions (read: she's learning the fine art of kicking her feet and screaming when she's displeased quite early.😑). She loves her family and asks for her Dada and Bruhber (brother) all the time.

This sweet girl turned “3” today! I can’t believe how quickly the last three years have gone by. Ella, its been such a blessing watching you grow from our tiny little bundle of joy into a smart, silly, independent, sassy, adventurous and beautiful little girl. We adore you and appreciate all that you have taught us thus far in our parenting journey. We can’t wait to see you change the world, Ella! Happiest of birthdays baby girl! We love you so much Elizabeth Ann Markey 💗😭😍! #thisis3#elizabethannmarkey#timepleaseslowdown
At first we had each other, then we had you and now we have EVERYTHING! ✨Happy 1/2 birthday sweet pea!✨ Ella Marie has 1 tooth, can sit up on her own, does not object to any type food you feed her, discovered a love of Harris Teeter donuts, already poses for the camera, adores her fur sister and has definitely discovered her voice! We love you!! #EllaMarie#6month 🎂 ❤️ 🎈 birthday #babygirl#milestones#timepleaseslowdown#birthday
To you, she’s just opening and closing the freezer, but to me she’s not supposed to be able to do this. My tiny little baby turned toddler is so independent and capable (especially if she wants a popsicle) and it’s just hard to even fathom how we got here and that in the blink of an eye she will be starting school, etc. So, yeah, it’s just a door that she’s opened, but just a few months ago she couldn’t do that and to me it’s just another stark reminder of how fast time flies and how helplessly I’m trying to hold onto and soak in every single minute while I still can. #JayceElizabeth#growingup#mybaby#missindependent#simplemoments#timepleaseslowdown
1 year ago today God gave me my biggest blessing, my purpose, my reason WHY. As sad as it makes me to see you grow so fast, I love watching you gain your independence. Can’t wait to show you the world 💙 Happy birthday baby!! #timepleaseslowdown
With 4 kiddos all in sports or some kind of activity it gets really crazy but watching my kids try new things and find what they are good at is so fun to watch!
Today Ayriana got 2 goals and Kristopher played his first game ever and scored 1 goal! Let me tell you, watching 4 years old play soccer is stink’n hilarious!
Trying my best to enjoy these moments because they are flying by!
As you can see, I smile lots.
I'm 18.5 kissable pounds.
I love watching sissy sing and dance, and I'm really good at babbling! I can roll over halfway and I love sitting and standing.
I'm getting a lot better at sleeping!
My favourite places are mum's arms, dad's lap & car rides.
You can say I'm pretty darn perfect!
She said let’s take a picture Whitney! Cheese!! 😁How does she even know you can take pics on FT. We took like 20 then she started taking pics on her end. I can’t with this kid! But wouldn’t trade her for the world!😘😘 #shylaboo#timepleaseslowdown#thing1 baby sister always misses out on the fun, she always taking a “nap” 😣

He definitely a momma's boy but get so excited when daddy comes home.
It feels just like yesterday when the doctor told me it was time to go to the hospital. My miracle baby, my fighter, you are living proof God answers prayers.
I realized I'm super behind on the #HereIsOurHomeschool challenge- oops. Wednesday's topic was your daily routine, and our routine has been all sorts of wacky this week due to having to replace our vehicle. My husband was rear ended and our single family car was totaled. 😩 Such is life.
Anyway, our routine is pretty locked in and revolves around meals and nap times. Life with littles is so challenging and yet so simple in some ways. My day always begins with solitude- some time with breakfast and my Bible, and, if I'm being honest, sometimes it's time on social media or the news, getting a glimpse of the outside world before I launch into kiddyland. And then we're off!
The beauty of the curriculum I chose for this year is it's extremely flexible, and we can do it in any order we want, whenever it fits in. We usually start with history and some Scripture memory. We revolve during the week between an art or science project, and sometimes dramatic play and thinking games. Then we take a break and after lunch we do some language arts and a read aloud, and after another break we finish with math and fine motor skill work- handwriting or some coloring/cutting/pasting, depending on the day.
Most importantly, at the end of 12 hours of teaching, feeding, disciplining, diapering, cleaning up, bathing, songs and bedtime prayers, this mama puts her feet up with a hot cup of chamomile tea while I wait for my husband to get home. (He works very late). This is my time to prep for tomorrow's school work, pay the bills, or, if I'm lucky, get some #masterpiecetheatre going on the TV. (Where's my fellow #downtonabbey fans?)
Lately I've taken to adding a hefty scoop of integral collagen to my tea for bone, hair, and nail health. But that's a topic for another day.
The many faces of
Jaxon Daniel Hernandez! 💙
