He's always so excited to do things as a family from little walks to a full on scandia day ❤️ appreciating these years before he's a teenager and rolls his eyes when I say "let's go on a family walk!" 😂
Happy Sunday friends!!

This was her "Thanksgiving dress" that she wore in the ocean on Kiawah Island last fall... now she wore it to church and ended up in Grammy and Papa's pool after 😂. I don't know how this dress still looks so amazing, but thank goodness it does because it's her Fave! 👗
Yesterday we visited Steve's cousins' house- which is on the lot adjacent to where my husband grew up. Seven boy cousins once ran back from house to house on this field. Clark couldn't keep still as he raced all along the open space. And I couldn't help laugh that it's probably exactly how Steve used to be. No posed photos. This space is meant for boys to run 😘💕
The little grump in Barcelona. I was so excited to use this hat my sister bought for him. Unfortunately, Theo's current favorite game is how many things can I chuck out of my stroller to drive my parents crazy. He decided the hat would be one of those things, and got rid of it when we weren't watching.
I hope some other more grateful baby is now donning that cool hat somewhere in Barcelona.
Ok, so it's Monday and the week is off to a start. You have 2 choices,
1. Complain that it's Monday
2. Celebrate that you have another chance to kick butt
I was listening to the venerable Tony Robbins last week and he reminded me of something powerful. If you replace your Expectations for Appreciations, you will start to feel immediately fulfilled.
So, here's a toast to Monday, for giving us another chance 😊😎😉
Bath time makes me sleepy too, kid. This little guy is the noisiest thing - I swear there is always some sort of sound emitting from him. And I've never met a baby who farts as much as he does, you'd think I gave birth to a full grown man if you could hear it 😳 but noisiness aside, he's the cutest thing and he's started giving us his social smile, which is still a hard-won reward so it makes it all the sweeter when he deems us worthy of receiving one. I just LOVE BABIES. 😍
85/365 She commandeered the coffee table to be her stage and performed for over an hour. The show included a velociraptor impression, original songs, and strange phone monologues on a toy car. My girl is amazing.
The boy who made me a mother 💛. He's been a little terror today, but 3 days in a row of no naps and long car journeys (we spent the weekend with Karl's family) will do that to you - poor kid! Hope all the mothers out there have been spoiled rotten today! #happymothersday
I didn't have godparents growing up. It wasn't something I was really very familiar until I married Javi. In his family the kids all have godparents. And all of the adults ARE godparents. So when my nephew and his wife asked me to be the godparent of their sweet baby boy, I was so so honored and excited. This sweet boy gets to live closer for the next few months and I couldn't be more excited to get more time with him (and his mama 😉)
Things have been pretty up and down lately, probably more down than up, which is my reason for my lack of any kind of presence lately. But after everything's said and done I wouldn't be without these two goofballs. Today I got some lovely cards and flowers and sat in my hammock in the sun with the children and the puppy and it was lovely.
Yesterday I went back to the gym after nearly 2 years and it felt good to give my body some much needed love. I think it's time to make some health improvements as a family, so I'm thinking biweekly hikes. Today we conquered our first one.
Who knew the desert could be so beautiful 🌿
Hoping each of you dear mamas in the UK had a wonderful Mother's Day! 💕 (And congratulations to @sallyfazeli on your sweet little man's arrival yesterday, just in time to join in the celebration!) 🎉 LIMERICK pixie shown in "wheat" #mercythreadsbonnet#motheringsunday#mothersday
Church potluck Sunday is probably everyone's favorite. Someone brought half red half green cupcakes. Which reminded me of Christmas. Which reminds me, only nine more months until Christmas!!! Time to start playing the Christmas music classics 🎄
Oyendo cómo llueve por la ventana...
💦 y más agua... 💦
Esta foto es del verano pasado pero sigue siendo mi foto favorita de los dos y una de las playas más bonitas, agua azul muy azul y la Scala dei Turchi en Sicilia, blanca muy blanca.
Scala dei Turchi, Sicily.
One of the most beautiful beaches and my favourite picture from Alba and her dad.
He loves to make "superhero playdoh," which is really just playdoh in the same colors as his favorite superheroes. I like to sneak in some calming oils like Lavender and Peace and Calming - or some Thieves because #germs .
Plus it helps make it a relaxing activity for me later too when I have to clean out all the dried playdoh from his toys. #winwin
