This week's swim meet was tough for Violet. She had a few mental obstacles to really overcome. First, getting disqualified on her breast stroke. Then second was that it was cold. Unusually cold for this time of year. She is very much like me about getting cold easy and being completely miserable when she's cold. She still had two races to go when she was in tears, shivering and wanting to give up, proclaiming her hatred of swim, and just go home. But I stayed with her. I kept warming her up as best as I could. Gave her my hoodie in between races and kept encouraging her. And through her fit of quitting, and then actually doing, she came out of these last 2 races a new girl. She had more of a confidence to her as she learned she could do hard things. It was such a cool mom moment for me to see her go from the scared, crying, want-to-give-up to this girl who stood up tall and handled it like a little boss. And after saying she wanted to quit the swim team at the meet Monday, she was chomping at the bit to go to practice yesterday! 😂😍#momlife#learningtoovercome#swim

Zoey wants to let everyone know the new Sensory Blanket prototypes are a GO! They CRINKLE now, and are sized perfectly for tiny hands, with a variety of textures for curious fingers to discover, ribbons to play with & a loop to link them to your bag, stroller or baby carrier so they aren't easily dropped! I am taking pre-orders for these while working on a big batch of them this week to debut at @thebigcrafty alongside Mon-stors, stuffies & more!

in so many ways, i want to be like arrow. she is strong and courageous, so fun and silly! she brings laughter + joy to everyone she meets. she is the perfect example of living freely and loving hard, all in or not at all.
in the midst of all the parenting, it is sometimes easy to lose sight of the things we love most about our kids. the struggles and the constant correction can overshadow all of the natural born goodness that God gave them and us through them! so instead of fearing what challenges the day may bring, embrace with gratitude all of the perfect light your babes will bring you today & the rest will come. happy wednesday!
Days are so much more joyful when I start them in God's word! Let Him rejuvenate you and renew your tired mama heart. I have more patience; I have more love; and I have more kindness because HE is patient with me; HE loves me, and HE is kind, even when I'm busy throwing my own toddler tantrums.

Tent camping at 8 months pregnant was a little challenging but absolutely worth it. We spent long days at the beach and this little gal had the time of her life. Our last getaway as a family of three..
My girls. 💜 #eadenkai and #sillylilythegoldendoodle .
Their bond is just the sweetest thing. I love that they're basically the same size right now. 😄 Lily is 5 months old and Eaden is 21 months. Both of them are growing like weeds. 🌱 And both of them, potty training soon I hope! Ha!
UNBOXING! June's Picture Box shipment was a huge hit! A clear favourite was the unique activity book that we included with adorable little pop-outs for hours of fun imagination play! Great lessons about taking care of nature and working hard were prevalent in "Pond" and we thought it was perfect for the summer season. PS. Want to get your hands on one of these boxes? There are a few extra of these available as one-time boxes so be sure to click "shop" and then "one-time boxes".

i am always so amazed by our sweet this little girl can be. i mean, don't get me wrong, she has her bad days just like the rest of us. but for the most part, in any social situation, she simply shines. in waiting rooms, grocery store lines, and just passing by, zola jumps at the opportunity to talk to anyone and everyone! she'll always ask you for your name and then follow with cutest compliment, like, "i like your dress!" or "you have very pretty hair!". i hope she continues to be like that for the rest of her life because that sort of kindness can change the world 🌎💫💓

Lately, he's started to love books! At any given time, we've got a few books and baby magazines out and he will bring me one so I can show him the pictures and read to him. Today, he figured out how to open them on his own and he is truly fascinated! He is definitely my child! #booksarelife
