Waiting for doctor... she is here, calm, playing with toys while other children cry all tears of their body... I have always been proud of my daughters for that, the doctor always told me that’s because they are in confidence, because they know that i am there, whatever what happened
En attendant le docteur ... elle est là, calme, jouant avec des jouets pendant que d'autres enfants pleurent toutes les larmes de leur corps ... J'ai toujours été fière de mes filles pour ça, le médecin m'a toujours dit que c'est parce qu'elles sont en confiance, parce qu’elles savent que je suis là, quoi qu'il arrive

Last night I shared about my personal journey in slowly weaning Isla from breastfeeding. I don’t usually share that sort of thing and am painstakingly guarded when it comes to my personal life and being vulnerable around others. It’s a defense mechanism I learned over the years to protect myself from getting hurt; it’s nothing to brag about. I’m sharing that about myself so that you can understand how far out of my comfort zone I went to share my thoughts with you guys last night.
It’s so easy to share pretty pictures, but an entirely different thing to authentically show up in this space, or any space for that matter.
I felt a desire to say what I was going through out loud, and not just out loud in a quiet room- out loud to listening ears. Sometimes you don’t realize how just saying something out loud can relieve the insurmountable pressure you’ve put on yourself, even if by just a tiny bit. I was half expecting at least one person to DM me about how if I’m not 100% ready then I shouldn’t do it, because there’s usually that one person. Instead, I was met with so much love and support, and really good tips to keep me comfortable. I can’t express my gratitude for that enough!
Thank you guys for listening to me and taking the time to offer your words of encouragement- way to lift a mama up! We should all do that more often ❤️
So ready for some fall magic. 🍂✨

We are having a blast on Vacation and I’m enjoying some time away from the computer! This recharge has Me super excited for the fall minis coming up! I have a couple slots left on Oct. 27th if you haven’t booked yet! #goldenhour #fallminis #aidenandgigi
There are so many things about parenting that make me uncertain. Am I disciplining them right? Am I being to strict on them? Are they going to grow up to resent us? If I really start to think about it, it begins to make me so anxious. I want to do everything in my power to mold them into beautiful young girls, and if I just stay focused on God's plan for my family instead of my own, it always brings me reassurance and works out perfectly... because, well, that's God. And on those days or weeks that, no matter what I'm doing, just isn't perfect.. God is still good. Photography: @lsuttonphoto
A lot of you know that my husband is a medical fellow-so we have finished 7/10 years of his medical training. I’ve been with him from the very beginning and honestly guys is has just been such a grueling process. His work ethic astounds me. Every step of the way he has poured himself into learning to care for patients that are angry at him and blame him for the faults of a broken system. There are bad doctors out there, but most of the issues you encounter have nothing to do with the doctors-they are as trapped and restricted by a crappy system as you are. Did you know that doctors as a profession have the highest suicide rate in our country? Their sacrifice is so under appreciated. I’m sick of memes that hate on doctors. There are bad eggs in every profession, but there are also so many people giving as much of themselves as they can to make a difference.
Happy Thursday IG friends... tomorrow I will have a teenager, I seriously cannot believe it. It’s true what they say, you blink and they grow up 💕
When I see this I want to sing "amber waves of grain" 😍
Asher Michael is 2 weeks old today🐾 He is an absolute dream, and currently my favorite child because he can’t talk. Sleeps 3-4 hours at a time, except on the days where he thinks it’s cool to stay awake ALL day without napping. Or when he sleeps for 6 hours straight in the evening, and then has to make up for it by eating every 6 minutes during the night. At his very first pediatrician appointment, at 6 days old, he weighed 7oz more than his birth weight. He is an excellent eater to say the least, which is great and wonderful, but my wallet cries a little with each purchase of formula (that sh* is expensive right?)😅 •••
I am so in love with this little guy. He reminds me a lot of Harper when she was an infant. Motherhood is definitely easier for me the second time around. Instead of questioning my every move and monitoring the baby like a hawk, I know to just trust my instincts and listen to my baby. Newborns are cool like that- they’ll let you know if they need something. Loudly. This little guy seems to be a mama’s boy already, but it has yet to be determined if that’s just due to the fact that he is a newborn & hasn’t realized how crazy his mom is yet🤷🏻♀️ In any case, I’m enjoying the leach like attachment while it lasts. •••
Ash, you’re a dream baby. I can’t get enough of you. #harperandasher #tylkapartyoffour #ashermichaeltylka
Weekend is coming soon, and we are pretty happy, that we can take her to her grandpa again, but at the same time, we know we will miss her really bad! I guess that’s what happens when your family becomes a part of you!
to the first day this little lady sat up on her own ❤️ .
Why is time going so fast?
Here’s to strong women.
Today I feel stronger in me. Tomorrow I might not and that’s ok. But today I do. We don’t always have to love everything about ourselves however never loose sight of your truth. Whatever your true you is focus on that until you feel like a stronger you again.
