Just because your little people are important, ⁣ ⁣ doesn’t mean that you’re not important too, mama. ⁣ ⁣ I can’t even tell the amount of times I’ve put something off that would make me feel good, for something that could easily wait or wasn’t necessary for my family. ⁣ ⁣ I’ve accepted my split ends, cancelled plans, cold coffee & worn out clothes as my new normal. ⁣ ⁣ But it doesn’t have to be! A lot of us are in this mindset that if we are not wholeheartedly self-sacrificing all day, everyday, than we aren’t doing our job the way we should. We romanticize the mother who gives so much to her family that there is nothing left for herself. How screwed up is that? ⁣ ⁣ Mamas, I’ve internalized this message for a long time. If something didn’t directly benefit my daughter, I didn’t do it. ⁣ ⁣ However what everyone fails to tell you is that when you take care of yourself, YOU DO take care of your family. ⁣ ⁣ Getting your hair done is not selfish. Buying that fancy new blouse isn’t selfish. Turning on the TV for the kid(s) so you can work on that new Pinterest project you’ve been dying to do is not selfish. ⁣ ⁣ Having dreams doesn’t make you a bad mom. ⁣ ⁣ Needing something other than being a mama doesn’t mean you don’t care. ⁣ ⁣ My motherhood is not defined by how much I can give up. It is defined by how much strength, purpose, love, and perseverance I have gained along the way. ⁣ ⁣ That includes all the times I chose to nurture me, too. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #embraceyourmotherhood #bumpdated #momssupportingmoms #momlifeunfiltered #motherhoodintheraw #motherhoodlife #momblogger #theheartproject #bestofmom #realmotherhood #motherhoodlens #microblogger #myhonestmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodthroughinstagram #stayathomemomlife #honestmotherhood #motherhoodrising #modernmom #motherhoodunhinged #teammotherly #mymotherhood #momsofinstagram #mommymode #momitforward #thelittlethings #seekthesimplicity #momentsinmotherhood #thebump #mynameismama

Monday // Shmonday so my days are a blur...& coffee dates in Catalina’s kitchen are my fav! Got dressed today because we all needed it. Let’s help do our part by staying HOME. 🙏🏼 P.S. I’m sure my jeans don’t fit anymore, I promised myself no more making tortillas! Ok, bye! ✌🏼 Happy quarantine!

N I N E M O N T H S/// (two days late) likes: peekaboo, flipping through books, tickles dislikes: diaper changes, shirts, this was a big month! vivi sprouted two bottom teeth and started crawling. she kind of hated it at first (if she was forced to resort to crawling, she complained pretty loudly the whole time) but is now quite the little adventurer! she’s even managed to dive off my bed already. and she’s so SMART! i’ve been telling matthew that she feels less like a baby and more like a toddler every day. she gives kisses and high fives. she taught herself how to drink from a cup (quite messily), loves books, points are what she wants/where she wants to go and imitates us all the time. her dad has been obsessed with his rubik’s cube lately. the other day i found her holding it in her hands and staring at it with her eyebrows all furrowed. after a moment, she started trying to twist the squares around. eventually she gave up and put it in her mouth, but I thought it was the funniest thing!

Quarantine/Social Distancing/Volunteered Isolation... it’s all hard. No one knows how to navigate this. We’re all in this together. Be kind and find the high spots and hold onto them when you’re pushing through the low spots. Reach out, talk to friends, keep going 💪🏻 . . . . #iseeyoumama #mamastrong #strongasamother #goawaycoronavirus #covid19thoughts #staystrong #reachout #mentalhealth #momminainteasy #ohheymama #mynameismama #uniteinmotherhood #momblog #stopdropandmom #teammotherly #bestofmom #busymomlife #honestmothering #acupofmotherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #motherhustler #mompreneurlife #bloggermom #workingmoms

Can you say you’re thankful for the coronavirus? ⁣ ⁣ It’s ok if you can’t. ❤️ So many are suffering with health and income loss and fear and worry - the list goes on.⁣ ⁣ But I want to challenge you today - as I’ve had to challenge myself lately with my own discouraged and depressed attitude and my own anxiety and fear.⁣ ⁣ James 1:2-4 reads: ⁣ ⁣ “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”⁣ ‭‭‬‬⁣ Lacking NOTHING. ⁣ ⁣ That’s pretty clear right?? I mean, I want that, don’t you? And how do we arrive at this place of lacking nothing?? ⁣ ⁣ Guess what. ⁣ ⁣ Through TRIALS. ⁣ ⁣ And on top of that - we can actually CONSIDER IT JOY!! ⁣ ⁣ What?! The coronavirus?? The source of joy??? ⁣ ⁣ Friends I’m telling you it should be. ⁣ ⁣ Because be not mistaken. EVERY difficult thing we walk through can be redeemed for our refinement.⁣ ⁣ We can have the Peace that passes understanding - even when things seem to be falling apart around us - whether that’s with...⁣ ⁣ ...a job⁣ ...an illness⁣ ...a marriage⁣ ...a VIRUS ⁣ It doesn’t matter! ⁣ ⁣ NOTHING is too big for God. And nothing need be wasted if we let the Lord work through it.⁣ ⁣ You guys, it’s so easy to lose sight of this, but The Lord is...⁣ ⁣ ...ALWAYS working⁣ ...ALWAYS going before us. And He ...ALWAYS makes ways for refinement in hard times. ⁣ ⁣ Sometimes our circumstances don’t change. And that is SO hard. SO hard. I know it is. I’ve been there. ⁣ ⁣ But guess what can change? ⁣ ⁣ Our hearts.⁣ ⁣ And THAT, my friends, will make all the difference in the world.⁣ ⁣ ❤️⁣ Em #motherhoodlens #mymamahood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #capturingchildhood #mymagicalmoments #mymotherhood #ourcandidlife #stayhome #mommystyle #teammotherly #writeyouonmyheart #heaventhroughmylens #kidsforreal #inbeautyandchaos #illuminatechildhood #homeschoolmom #homeschoolmama #wildandfreechildren #wildandfreemama #homeschoollife #homeschoolers

✨ EIGHT MONTHS ✨⁣ ⁣ (So I’m definitely 12 days late posting this but I can’t stop now that I’ve done every single month so far)!⁣ ⁣ I can’t believe that this little guy is 8(and a half 🤣) months old. ⁣ ⁣ In these last weeks he’s really ramped things up. A couple of updates from Austin’s World:⁣ - “mama” and “baba” are what he repeats, all day everyday. ⁣ - he’s the king of blowing raspberries. ⁣ - he can damn well throw a tantrum. ⁣ - he’s got 4 toothies.⁣ - he grabs and reaches for EVER-YTHINGGGGGG (as demonstrated in his photo above). ⁣ - the growing of said 4 toothies was (and still is) not the most fun. ⁣ - he now sleeps in Mom & Dads bed and will for the foreseeable future it seems. ⁣ - since changing to HiPP, he’s the king of 💩s too. ⁣ - Teletubbies is his favourite. ⁣ - he’s been in 9-12 month clothes for a few weeks already and it’s killing me. 6-9m was the shortest stage!⁣ - Daddy seems to be his favourite person, you’ll never see him so excited to see anyone else. ⁣ ⁣ It’s absolutely mad how eight months can fly by so fast. With everything that’s been going on, it’s not that I forgot to post this but it’s rather that I didn’t feel in the celebratory mood. I’d rather time pause for a moment, atleast in our household, until the world resumed normality. ⁣ ⁣ Truth is, Austin is the bestest boy and although motherhood can be testing at times, I couldn’t of wished for a happier little boy. ⁣ ⁣ I hope everyone’s keeping positive and making the most of the time, however they see fit. ⁣ ⁣ Happy 8 months my big boy. Here’s to years and years and years more 🖤⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #ukmum #ukmummyblogger #maternity #eightmonthsold #bigboy #babyboy #myson #firsttimemum #momswhoblog #momswithcameras #happiness #staypositive #stayhome #teammotherly #motheringittogether

💤"After sleep training, my daughter sleeps 10-11 hours at night! But some nights she'll wake up and just NEEDS the pacifier - we can't get her to go back to sleep without it. How can I make her sleep through the night without needing it?"⁠ .⁠ ▶️ While it may seem like a good idea at the time, reintroducing any sort of sleep prop during a period of random wake-ups is not the answer we're looking for!⁠ .⁠ ❓What do I mean by a "sleep prop?" The most common ones I see are:⁠ .⁠ 1️⃣ Pacifiers⁠ .⁠ 2️⃣ Nursing to sleep⁠ .⁠ 3️⃣ Rocking or bouncing to sleep⁠ .⁠ If your baby is struggling with night wakings, adding a sleep prop will only make the problem worse!⁠ .⁠ Pulling those aids and reinforcing good sleep habits will ensure your child continues to sleep through the night without needing your help!⁠ .⁠ Comment below if your child has been waking up randomly, I'll answer your sleep questions ASAP!⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #momlife #momspiration #moms #mommyandme #mommeme #momtips #postpartum #pregnancy #newmom #newmomlife #momtruth #momlifebelike #workingmoms #thisismotherhood #momsofinstagram #firsttimemom #teammotherly #scarymommy #momblogger #momtruths #quarantinedwithkids #newmomtips #6monthsold #7monthsold #5monthsold #newmomsurvival

FEAR holds us captive. GRATITUDE sets us free.✨ ⠀⠀ Three years ago, we took the leap. Darren had a great job that he loved, yet we knew he was building someone else’s dream, not ours. ⠀⠀ Three years later, even through this time of uncertainty, we have seen nothing but massive growth in our business & I’m bursting with gratitude!✨ ——————- 👉More families than ever before are taking their health & finances more seriously- realizing they no longer can depend on someone else to help them stay well or “a job” to pay their bills. ⠀⠀ I am SO grateful we discovered RESIDUAL INCOME when we did. (If you don’t know what it is- it’s basically where you build a business so that paychecks keep coming in even if you have to “clock out” for some time). ⠀⠀ ✨Young Living has been our VEHICLE for creating multiple streams of income. ⠀⠀ My heart breaks for all those in physical & financial stress- I want this FREEDOM for everyone! ⠀⠀ 👉If you’re in a spot where you’re in physical or financial stress or in FEAR, it’s time to make a change. ⠀⠀ Change doesn’t happen overnight, it happens one step at a time... ⠀⠀ ✨When you’re ready to take that step, I will be right here ready to walk alongside you! ————————— ✨If you’re wondering just what kind of income is possible, here it is. And YES, that’s MONTHLY! #coronavirus #gratitude #spreadkindness #takethenextstep #residualincome #controlyourthoughts #seizetheday #businesssuccess #entrepreneurmotivation #growthmindset #growyourbusiness #successmindset #dreamersandoers #womensupportingwomen #opportunity #sayyestosuccess #creativesontherise #creativeminds #mompreneurlife #inbeautyandchaos #honestmotherhood #bestofmom #joyfulmamas #motherhoodrising #motherhoodsimplified #teammotherly #ohheymama #successfulminds #mindsetiskey #motivationforlife

I would like to know why my 5 month old is almost the same size as my 2 year old 😂 But y’all, Beckett is FINALLY warming up to Scarlett! 😭🙌🏻 he’s always ignored her for the most part or will try to pull her off my lap lol he’s such a mamas boy! Recently he’s started going up to her on his own and will “pet” her head or just stare and smile at her 😭♥️ I’m loving watching their bond grow! #babiesdontkeep #thebump
