Sometimes you have to say no to things in life.
This week I said no to an opportunity I had wanted for a while, but I knew that saying no was the right choice for me and my family. I felt that it would interfere with what is most important to me, and I didn't want that happening.
It was a hard call to make, but so worth it!
The relief I felt after saying no was A-maze-ing! (cue: happy dance💃 #forrealthough )
.
Whoever you are out there, don't be afraid to take that step. Whether it's a yes or a no. Do what's best. ALWAYS put Jesus and family first♡

WONDER WEEKS
@livingratefully was talking about the wonder weeks in her last post. Have you heard of them? What stage are your littles at?
.
My babe is 23 weeks, but i think he started entering the 23-26 week period a couple weeks ago. He definately is realizing the world around him! He has major attachment. When I set him on his tummy, he is constantly looking up to make sure I am still there. ...and if i leave for 2 seconds, he: 😭
Hehe, it is sweet though 😘
We get lots of time together ♡
#EnjoyEveryMoment .

Felix loves his @GRACO SnugRide Click Connect 35 carseat! It is extremely lightweight, rates high in safety standards, is compact, comes in 4 colors, and is very affordable!
We couldn't love it more!!

Throwback to when i was nearly 8 months pregnant...
.
"I loved you from the very start
You stole my breath (yes, literally),
Embraced my heart.
Our life together has just begun
You're part of me, my little one."

For those of you who experienced #postpartum hair loss: HOW LONG DID IT LAST?🤷‍♀️
My hair started falling out about a month ago and the game is still strong!

If you are tired, about to colapse, at the end of yourself...
• Remember that "they don't need perfect, they just need YOU!" •
.
At least 15 hours straight every day, with only a couple cat naps in between is the recent schedule for us.
.
And a super new twist to the schedule is that he slept 3 times through the night this past week (mom and dad do a happy dance).
I didn't know it could ever happen (even if he doesn't keep doing it, it was nice!)

Month 4 with my little babe has been challenging and fun!
Still not the best sleeper and going through a "mama don't leave me stage" (so sweet though). Felix is becoming more attentive and learning new things!
The cutest thing he's been doing the past few weeks is getting up on his hands and knees (he tries desperately to go forward😅😘)
▪How old are your babes and what fun new things are they doing?

I want to share with you, that I AM HUMAN TOO.
I face fears of not being the perfect mom, the perfect wife, the right kind of friend. I face fears of my child dying or getting hurt. I face fears of being misunderstood or being rejected by people I love. I am human.
.
I let lies creep in saying, "you are not enough", "you're not doing that right for your baby", "you're not welcome here", "you must 'mom' this way --it's the only right way", "you cannot share that-- what would people think of you then". I am human.
.
I hide behind a "perfect" (fake) me. I'll share the little problems that won't hurt me. But-what is not perfectly real, is fake-
Remember... I am human.
.
I build a shell around me, trying to keep the negativity out.... but soon I will break.
I am human.
.
And instead of letting the shell burst on it's own, I will break out of it!
.
I am human. I get upset. I hurt others. I exhaust myself trying to make a "perfect" life. I get negative. I talk behind people's backs. I let myself become lazy. (and sorry,  I'm losing it now😭).
I am human.
Bullying is real. Hurt is real. Negativity is real. Partiality is real.
You are human. I am human. Let's be kind.
Please stop bullying, stop shaming, stop hurting other humans.

1. I hate spiders seriously hate them. Seeing a big one can actually make me feel nauseous.
2. They brought a mirror in and I watched myself birth Felix. It was magical💕
3. I used to shower twice a day (sometimes 3 times)🤷‍♀️
4. I hoard chocolate covered donuts🍩
.
What's a #reallife fact about you?

And if you don't know who I am, my name is Anna. I love being Isaac's wife❤ @aim_naturephotography and mom to Felix♡
