Mama Knows Best

Good morning, lovelies! Our oldest, Savannah, has been the hot commodity since being home from school. We’ve found our groove to these summer days. Savannah is 6 years old and can pull out all the belly giggles from our baby Avery. I think that’s a specialty of big siblings. They love to act silly and they know how to get a baby laughing their little head off. I’m SO grateful for Savannah’s sweet and nurturing spirit.

Years ago when the twins were born, Savannah hadn’t even turned 2 years old. It seemed as though she was a baby herself. I came home from the hospital with 2 car seats with 2 brand new babies. I have that moment on video but it’s forever burned in my heart. View Post

12 MONTH UPDATE

T W E L V E months… of you becoming the most social and sweet baby. Your entire body still shows all that you feel in your heart. We love that about you. And teeth, girl!!! For alllll of last month you had the silliest snaggle tooth grin. Seeing your wide-mouth grin made me laugh out loud every single day. You’re such a ball of joy. Happy 12 months, baby girl.

I’ve been getting a lot of DM’s on my instagram from you girls who are feeling super lost which I can obviously relate to since I’ve been sharing my own feelings in these last few blog posts HERE + HEREMaybe you’re stuck in funk, too? I’ll dive in to those feeling in this post AND in another one coming later this week! Especially the struggle to commit to self-care through exercise and what makes success happen even with my crazy + busy + mom life. It’s important to plan your day with purpose and I’ll share how I do mine. Want to change your behavior, too? Then change your mindset and perspective. View Post

Happy With a Miserable Baby

Good morning, friends! We’re over halfway through our week and things are looking bright! Avery has had the sniffles + teething for what feels like months! It’s been exhausting for the two of us. When my babies are sick or teething, they don’t sleep or feed well. The extra congestion bothers her and she hasn’t been very happy about it. And the thing about being a mother is we feel their pain. If they’re miserable, we’re miserable. It’s easy to mirror their emotions and it always takes a toll on me until I realize View Post
