Berets for Corduroy! Fun family day for fall break downtown today! They found a penny on the ground and conspiring together on how many Shoppie dolls they could get with it. They poured their own syrup on their waffles and we ALL smiled the whole way through the play- such a GREAT show! 🐻 #dcpa #corduroy #fallbreak
Oh my, those newborn stretches. And with that hair, too!? Can’t. Handle. It. 😍
I was thinking of stairs today... When challenges arise we have two choices: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1️⃣ Get lost in our thoughts and emotions, OR
2️⃣ Look for the little things we can do about our situation and move ahead. One step at a time.
📌 The way we face challenges becomes a model for our children, who are watching and learning from us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👀 And whether we think of ourselves as failures, does show in our non-verbal expressions, our body language, and our emotions. And these are powerful messages to our children too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🙌🏼 We can do it though! All it takes is to watch our thought process and think of challenges as staircases we can climb, rather than walls that stop us from moving forward. 🎯
One. Step. At a time.
You can do it!

“A newborn baby has only three demands. They are warmth in the arms of it’s mother, food from her breasts and security in the knowledge of her presence. Breastfeeding satisfies all three.” Came across this quote today and it filled my heart. Being able to nurse was no joke for me! Talk about hell for weeks, sometimes months. But I have an incredible amount of perseverance (some have called it stubbornness 🙄🤷♀️)... especially when it comes to my babies and something I know the Lord designed me to be able to do. One day I’ll share my story in hopes of helping another mama out there, but for now, just know... I get it. And He sees you. As I was nursing this precious boy today, I glanced down at his chunky little legs in these knee patched pants from @alpinebabyco
and couldn’t help myself 😍 #heaventhrumylens #thosekneepatchestho #kingstonwilder
Happy Monday! Hope your week is full of so much joy 💛
Soaking in her new baby brother ❤️
O que tá acontecendo??? 😂😂😂😂
Amo a espontaneidade das crianças ❤️
ill be sharing a peek of this family session in my stories tonight 🖤 i love this family. their youngest hopped out of the car when they arrived for photos and said “YES!” #attitudeonfleek
Waiting on Monday treats before karate and tumbling. Keep my little people busy.
I am all about capturing real memories with my family because I think family time is important. It’s the glue that holds us all together. I think families need time to sit and talk without distractions. That’s why we make time every week to go out as a family and enjoy a great meal. This Kid loves his pasta, so this week, we headed to @olivegarden
just in time for #NationalPastaDay
! He got the Grilled Chicken Parmigiana With the gluten-free rotini marinara, and I think it’s safe to say he enjoyed it!
National Pasta Day is Wednesday, October 17th. Celebrate it with your family @olivegarden
When was the last time you visited Olive Garden?
Becuase if you can look at this without smiling, I don’t get you😂
Gosh, this girl brings so much joy to our family. Every single day. The boys fight over who gets to get her out of her crib every day (even though she truly only wants it to be mama getting her🤣).
And there’s few things better than when she lays her fat little cheeks down on your shoulder for a snuggle.
Stella shrieked with joy and jumped up and down when she first saw Jack and Sally today and she collected a handful of leaves from the ground while in line just to give to them. Eli was excited until it was our turn, then was shy, and finally he warmed up and went up to Jack. The Nightmare Before Christmas remains a favorite around our house... bet you’ll never guess what our Halloween costumes will be 😂 #eliandstellaa #nightmarebeforechristmas
Don't let what if hold you back!! If I had let it hold me back, my children's book, Books in the Park, wouldn't be coming out in less than 30 days!

Throwback to these cuties! What are your kids dressing as this year?
How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.
At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow.

If you’ve been wanting to purchase an adorable, hand-knit @cuddleandkind
doll (they make the best Christmas gifts) now is the time! For every doll purchased, 20 meals will be donated to children in need! Hurry though because this event ends tomorrow! #doubleyourimpact #cuddleandkind
Discovered that Maddox will walk if I bribe him with veggie sticks soooo...😜🤷🏻♀️
For everyone who put in their guesses, we got a 2018 Highlander and I named her Bianca! 🙌🏻 Anyone else name their cars or am I just a weirdo? 🤣 #drivetoyota #letsgoplaces #highlander
Like is this even for reals?! 😭 I’ve never known a 6 month span of time to fly by, this fast, in my entire life! I love this baby doll so much! She’s such a little mamas girl and nothing could make me happier ☺️ #littlechickwithalittlechick #anitaasshegrows
Seriously, does this cutie pie even need a caption?! Her whole session gives me ALL the heart eyes 😍💕Hope you’re having a wonderful Monday friends!!
Our family has been training hard for the Nap Olympics (which is definitely a thing 💁🏼♀️), but we all know #livabeautifullife
is taking the gold 🥇 for best nap hair.
Just in case anyone was wondering, Bishop’s hair grew back #Swipe
to see what Petsmart did to him when we moved here 😂 They had him looking like an oversized hairless cat 😂 The bottom half of his body looked like a raw chicken wing 😂 OAN: I low key want it cut like that again because vacuuming hair everyday is aggravating 🤷🏽♀️ #GermanShepherd #Petsmart #HaircutGoneWrong
Waiting for baby & ready to PREVENT baby flat head syndrome with Mimos. Use from day 1. 😊 Thanks to @emmabenjamins
