You guys, we have a walker!🙌🏻 Ames has been taking steps for two months now, but finally has his balance and confidence😍. Officially saying goodbye to sitting down again....ever😜 #youcantcatchme @liskebra
I sure hope our UPS man loves my new mat! Now he won’t have to feel bad at all because he’s ALWAYS bringing me wine!😍 Now to everyone else who shows up at my door besides Mr UPS man, you better come prepared 🍷🍷🍷 😏#thatisathreat @chalkfulloflove
#tbt to the one of the last times Ames nursed 🐄. This picture is significant to me because with both of my boys, breastfeeding them was a journey. Sometimes blissful, sometimes a warpath. But a piece of our story nonetheless. We made it 15 months together (both of my boys actually). I hung on a little longer than needed I think, but selfishly I needed to give it up just as much as he did. I was hanging onto my baby, when my baby was just wanting more independence. So we closed that chapter with tears and happiness 🤪.
As I reflect on this time, I just wanted to share because I’m very proud of both of my breastfeeding journeys and what my body could provide for my sons. That being said everyone is different and we should all be proud of our journeys whatever they look like! Whether it was no months, 6 months, or 3 years, we all do our best and should OWN our journey. Mamas, we freaking rock and whatever decisions we make to help our babies is the best and we should celebrate it! For now, I’m removing “cow” and “milk making machine” from my many hats collection 😜❤️ #gotmyboobsback
“To live, to TRULY live, we must be willing to RISK. To be nothing in order to find everything. To leap before we look.”
Sometimes I have no freaking clue what I’m doing, or if I’m doing it right, or best. However, I do know that in these moments of not knowing anything, I’m doing whatever I can to be everything. Go out and pretend you’re 4 and take that LEAP! 💫
I’m thankful for so many things this year. My two beautiful boys, my family and friends, a roof over my head, a super fun business where I’m making money from home.....but mostly I’m thankful for this guy.
Thankful that he takes pictures with me that are usually super awkward and we laugh 😂. But seriously, thankful he forgives me when I fail over and over again. Thankful that he is patient with me when I promise to do something and (again) absentmindedly forget. Thankful that he can bring my sometimes crazy, stressed out, anxiety-ridden mind back down to earth and not only tell me it will be ok, but SHOW me. Thankful that despite the last MANY weeks being a family in the throes of sickness just trying to survive daily, he helps me remember what’s important and what matters. US. We are what makes this family work. @liskebra YOU are what makes me so very thankful! ❤️
My first child taught me so much about myself. How much I could love unconditionally no matter what, feel everything another person was feeling-hurt or sad, excited or happy-in my own heart. How much I could worry and stress, yet trust that it would all be okay. It was also SO much learning how to actually be a parent, and care for another life. Total, utter responsibility.
Enter child #2 . Now, I’m no expert in parenting, but this guy has been a lot EASIER. I’m much more relaxed and I’ve been through all this stuff once before. So I am able to EXPERIENCE. Time is faster now, but moments are slower. We’re so much busier now, but he forces us to slow down (literally and figuratively😜). He forces us to LIVE. He is a perfect miracle from God and we could never ever imagine life without him. ❤️😘 #mybaby#pleasedontgrowup
