So the twins never have been good sleepers, I can count on one hand the nights they slept through the night. Most nights they still wake up at least once or twice.
Well guess what it can be worse, now they are waking up like newborns again, every 2 hours. They arent sick or anything so lets hope that this is short lived, because zombie me is back lol.

Story telling with my big boy by the AC vent while Oliver is sleeping the afternoon away😴. Even though I'm a little bit sad that Matias won't nap anymore (most days at least), I'm enjoying this one on one time so much. He tells the story of the three little piggies and the big bad wolf like no one! 🐷🐷🐷🐺
After a long morning at nursery, Ted couldn’t have been more ready to enjoy his @disney film this afternoon. Super easy to download from Google Play so he didn't have to wait long. Link in bio for more details. #Ad
Give this girl some sunglasses + DNCE on Spotify, and she'll throw a garage party. ⠀
What music are you listening to today? Bonus points if you can recommend a Spotify station for me to follow. 😉
Things I have learned as a new mum returning to the gym: 1) Everything is going to hurt. Like a lot. No matter how active your pregnancy was, going back will hurt everywhere. Sleep will help those sore muscles repair. Good job you get lots of that.🙃🙃 2) You do not need to lift heavy weights. In fact, you shouldn't lift heavy weights. Your baby is a heavy weight. She is clingy and wants carried all the time. You cannot do so when your arms are about to fall off with the DOMS. 3) Your core muscles share the same consistency as mashed potato. Yeah, that's fun. 4) You're making it to the gym. You're doing alright, mama.💪🏼 #NewMum#HonestMotherhood#PostpartumFitness#FitMama ❤
When my wife found out she was pregnant, she opened my eyes to a way of parenthood I've never seen before. It was a level of passion that was beyond anything I've experienced and it made me love her, and parenting even more. Everyday she would show me something new, an article on creativity, a mommy blogger on Instagram to follow, or some baby products like bags and strollers. She was a dedicated student and spent every moment she could on being the best she could be. One of the things that came up a lot was Ju-Ju-Be. The more I looked into it, the more I saw that they had a real culture behind them. One quote on their website describes their culture (and my wife)as having "practicality in her head, confidence and style in her step, and love for others in her heart." Ju-Ju-Be was able to establish such an obsessive following for good reason though, and you can read more on our blog, just follow the link in my bio!
Fall has me getting all emotional😭 Yesterday Ezra played on the swings for the first time and looked so freaking grown up.. I’m gonna soak up every moment of her first fall and pray that she grows to love it as much as I do!
Últimamente me he dado cuenta de que Óliver le encanta que le lean y mirar libros. ¡Menos mal, con lo que nos gustan en casa! A veces es cuestión de suerte, otras veces de trabajarlo... A la mayor siempre le apasionó la lectura al punto de pedir para su cumpleaños de 7 que todo el mundo le regale SOLO libros. La mediana recién ahora parece interesarle el tema, con 8 años, eso si, lee cada día y aún tiene mucho para leer: ¡la enorme biblioteca que le dejó su hermana!. Y ahora Óliver, que parece seguir el camino de la mayor. 📖
In the grand scheme of things. . . How cruel would one Mom be if she told her child that throwing up four fingers is not a nice hand gesture to use in every day life? . . . Simply because it breaks Mom's hearts to be reminded constantly of how old their babies are getting. . . This is that whole, "asking for a friend thing..." but really it's me that needs to know. Like for real, those 4 fingers are killing me.
Homeschooling has given us the freedom to have the kids (especially Olivia) explore their interests without feeling like we're constantly on the go 🙌🏼 Olivia is loving soccer and we're loving watching her grow ⚽️
One from holiday. After weeks of frustration, being helped to walk/bum-shuffling (and finding her wedged in all sorts of awkward positions under the sofa and chairs), she's finally crawling in a bid to catch up with her big sis #uhoh#onthemove
Tiny toes on their adventures today 🖤 we had such a fun day exploring but lost one half of our favourite little moccs in the process 😪 it's always that bit more sad when you know how much time and love has gone in to making them #shopsmall#shophandmade
Our little love is twelve weeks today! Oh Anna, what can I say? You love chomping on your little fists, folding your hands and swiping at toys. It's exciting for us to see you do things intentionally now! You chat chat chat and we love to hear your little voice. Your favourite things to do are make silly sounds with Daddy, cat nap in Mummy's lap and go out to new places. You still don't sleep much during the day, and get up all the time in the night, but you are the happiest little girl and we love you times a billion ❤️ #dearannaliese
We seem to stay really busy in a slow kind of way 🤣. We stop at almost every anthill on our walks, we study rocks to no end, read about 20 books a day, and take time to appreciate anything with wheels! He has taught me more about life than any textbook ever has. One of them being, the raw beauty in simply slowing down and watching the wheels go round and round. In such a busy world, I appreciate more and more that majority of my days are spent right next to this guy. ...🎹🚂 I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go
Ah, people ask me questions
Lost in confusion
Well, I tell them there's no problem
Well, they shake their heads and they look at me, as if I've lost my mind
I tell them there's no hurry, I'm just sitting here doing time🚃🎹... #ksnuggs ❤ #watchingthewheels#johnlennon#yokoono#boyswithcurls#teachyourchildrenwell#letthembelittle#lifelessons#slowdown#onlysolutions#simpledays#extendedsummer

The words ‘stay soft’ keep rolling around in my brain. Almost as a constant reminder to myself. I have a super tender heart and things hit me deeply but I also bought into the lie that being hard was strength. I felt the pull to be strong and to keep my emotions at bay for a long long time. But right now I feel a shift with the seasons and frankly I just can’t keep my emotions suppressed anymore. They just keep spilling out of me- at the most inconvenient of times! I’m learning to feel a lot more again but let me tell you, it hurts so good! Let us be kind! Let us freely give compassion! Let’s stay soft! It looks beautiful on you!
This industry can drain you dry, if you aren't careful. There's always a workshop I need to go to, a new lens I've got to buy, another marketing technique that could really do wonders for me. But really, I just want to take a photo that stops you in your tracks & you know it's gotta go life size over your mantle.
