Today I wiped more bums then I can count. I yelled, “Stop doing that to Hazel” more times than I can count. I fished more items out of Hazels mouth than I count. I lost my cool more than I’d like to admit. And still, still, at the end of the night Greta wrapped her arms around me and said “I love you mommy.” Thank heaven for forgiving children and their kind little hearts. This momma path can really push my limits some days but I’m so grateful for it. ❤️
We past the 11 month mark with Hazelnut this week and we are over here 🙌🏻🙌🏻 I’m not one of those moms who...let’s say...loves the baby stage? Ha. When people say, “Isn’t this the best? Just holding them and snuggling all day?” I don’t get it 🤣🤣 I usually just politely nod because if I say I don’t enjoy it, I get looks like I just told them “I hate puppies”, which I don’t necessarily love either. 😳😂 So... yep, I’m the crazy lady that doesn’t enjoy babies and puppies. Moving on... Don’t get me wrong, I love this squishy girl more than I can say...I just don’t love the late night hours, the constant crying, the lack of communication, etc. I like watching them grow and be independent and gain personality and we are getting there folks! She is one of the happiest little bugs and I love seeing more and more of her goofy personality come through every day. Also loving the curly hair that’s popping up. 👌🏻 Happy 11 months Hazel! We love you! ❤️#elevenmonthsold
Oh 👋🏻 friends! Happy 2018! I always need the first week of January to kind of get back into routine and recover from the holidays. Anyone else? I usually set a bunch of goals for the New Year but this year I’ve kept it to one simple goal and that’s to be a more active mom. Less time on my phone, more time with my girls. They are only little for so long and I don’t wanna miss it. What are some of your goals? Do you go big? Or do you keep your goals small? I’d love to hear!
Let’s just say that our Christmas vacation has been kind of a bust. I really didn’t have plans for sick children but what do ya do? 🤷🏼♀️ I am looking forward to a New Year, new adventures, and is it too early to look forward to next Christmas? 🤣🤦🏼♀️ Wishing you all a Happy New Year! Here’s to 2018!
My parents are giving us an old fashioned Christmas this year at the cabin and it’s been so fun! They always do the most unique things and I’m so grateful for the memories we are making. Plus, Christmas is just better in the snow. ❄️❄️
You guys! Hazel has slept through the night two nights in a row! Whaaaa?! I really don’t wanna jinx it but 🙌🏻🎉 A week ago we started sleep training and I think she is just about there. Just in time for our holidays travels 🤣🤔 I’m hoping we can keep it up! I’m also hoping she’ll keep it up so we can move Greta back into the room and out of our bed 🤦🏼♀️ How do you guys do kids sharing rooms? Do they just eventually get used to each other or am I crazy for attempting? I shared a room with my sister for a few years and all I remember is her constantly telling me to, “Look the other way” or to, “Please stop breathing.” 🤣😬 Any tips appreciated! #langyladiesdodisney
Where did ten months go? I’m amazed at how Hazels first year of life is flying by but goodness she is becoming so fun. I love when personality starts to shine through and just look at that smile 😍 Killlllllller. It makes those cheeks irresistible. 💋 Happy ten months baby girl!
How is it Wednesday? Where did the week go? I’m knee deep in projects as I’m sure everyone is this time of year. But tonight as a family we are gonna slow down a bit, decorate a gingerbread house, and watch a Christmas movie. I can’t wait! Happy Hump Day!
Happy Birthday to our favorite guy! 🎉🎈He adores his ladies and treats us all with so much love and respect. These little ladies scored a good one and they already know it. He is the favorite adult in the house and when he walks in the door, everyone’s moods instantly change to happiness. Happy 33 love. We sure do ❤️ you.
All I want for Christmas is a baby that sleeps and some miracle eye cream to remove the super scary, dark circles under my eyes. Whoa did those stop me in my tracks today. 😳 🙏🏻🎅🏼 Happy Weekend friends!
I’m answering all the adoption questions you asked ON.MY.BLOG 🤦🏼♀️🙄 Don’t worry, it’s not thaaaaaat kind of blog but I did want a little space on the internet for me. I won’t be giving any fashion tips (obviously) but just want to share a little happiness with my photographs. If you care to look, the link is in my bio. We will see how long this lasts. 🤣🤣Check out my instastory for more info.
Hello Monday, we hear you loud and clear. 👌🏻 I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with family and friends. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I’m just so grateful for these two little ladies right here. Adoption isn’t easy but we lucked out and both babies fell in our laps and I will be forever grateful. It’s still National Adoption Month and the rest of the week I’ll be answering the adoption questions you asked. If you have any, send me a DM! Wishing you all a Happy Monday!
