Our welcoming party 🐾
..By far my wildest kiddo 🙄😂😊
Cream or no cream? Either way we got you covered!
My mum hasn’t had time to post lately as unfortunately this month has been crazy.
I lost my bestfriend (kitty cat) in a tragic way, I got post traumatic stress from it and my separation anxiety has become terrible.
Mum has been finding it very hard to deal with as she feels for me and how stressed I get. I got to meet a behaviouralist/vet who believes I’m best on anxiety medication to calm me so then I can focus on my training.
This will be a very long journey but I’ve got my mum by my side every step of the way!

Babies can begin to have teeth as early as 3 months, or as late as 12 months. Most babies start growing their first teeth around 4-7 months, starting with the 2 bottom at the front. Once your baby starts teething, expect more drooling and experimentation with sounds as he gets used to the strange things in his mouth. You can help make him comfortable by giving him something clean and safe to chew, like a rubber teething ring or a cold wash cloth. .
Your baby is becoming more emotional and is starting to show her emotions - she may kiss a familiar person, or show empathy by crying when someone else is crying.
Your baby may now show signs of separation anxiety - not wanting to be separated from you. If you are leaving your baby for a while, leave him with someone familiar and give lots of hugs 🤗 and kisses 😘, telling him you’ll soon be back - he may not understand it but the show of affection should console him until he sees your face again 😃 .
Your baby will start copying you from now till several years ahead. She’ll be watching how you interact with people, how you do things and how you treat people, this is a great time to give her lots of positive behaviours you want her to carry in life. .

Left my girlfriend at the Brisbane airport, can't wait to see her again 😍🤤 #seperationanxiety
Behind the camera is a silly mama, coming to Wellington for a meeting and realising that was the first trip travelled without her daughter since the little girl was born. On the way to the airport it started to rain so she went into the store and bought a rain jacket, of her daughter's but not her size 😂 #sillymama #workingmama #seperationanxiety #babyisprobablyplayinghappilyathome
Pretty sure the guitar player in wild nothing owns that turquoise ric these days. #seperationanxiety
Got My Darkness back a week early! Close to 3 weeks apart, but she looks amazing. 🖤
Daycare all day is exhausting
“getting it right” @mumologist
spoke of this last week during #childmentalhealth
week. Our little one has been struggling with nursery, it’s been upsetting on both accounts. I’ve questioned my reasons for nursery hundreds of times and cried many tears. When talking to people about our nursery settling, I’ve found myself having to justify my daughters unsettling, I have to stand plain face when people tell me she will get over it and will settle soon. Which made me think about @mumologist
post, why must we “get it right?” Is there a time frame we must adhere to? Has my Bebe not reached her nursery milestone in time? isn’t it natural for her to be unsettled when taken away from “her” norm and taken to a different environment? How would we feel if it were to happen to us, now as adults. How would we cope? Would we allow ourselves time to adhere to the situation? Or would we shut down our emotions and tell ourselves that we are silly to feel that way. I think a lot, a hell of a lot and I’ve come to think that I’m happy going at my bebes pace, I’m not going to “rush” her baby steps into nursery, nor try to block her emotions. If it takes seven months to settle, then it takes seven months. I’ve carried her for nine months and held her for twelve. Again I feel it’s another justification we have to secretly whisper to ourselves to allow ourself breathing space at this parenting lark.
I’m happy to break the norm and admit nursery days are shite. Baby steps people baby steps

Not sure if it’s a good or bad thing he doesn’t understand mom is leaving tomorrow for a couple days. I know he’s going to be wondering where I am. 😫 This will be the first time since he was born that I’m going on a trip without him. Already starting to miss him. #seperationanxiety #attachedatthehip
and to see her best friend!!! @alexandra.eason
I’ve used these programs after every pregnancy to get back into to shape, but I don’t think I realized how much of my sanity is tied into my fitness routine until THIS postpartum journey.
(3 time’s the charm, right?) I could depend on a lot of things to make me feel better- but are they MAKING me better?
I’m glad I have the outlet of working out. And I don’t have to haul everyone to the gym with me #germs
or leave my babies #seperationanxiety
❤️ just being real here. I’ve found something that works for me and is good for my soul and maybe you need it too? That’s why I share.
What works for you? Everyone is different and I respect that! You do you ❤️
Mom made a completely unnecessary trip to cvs for DayQuil, leaving me alone for a half hour at least. It was absolutely awful. Upon return she was fully inspected and seems to have no scent of another dog. #seperationanxiety
Spencer's Hike while the first snow hit Eugene. I didn't realize I was actually supposed to be meeting friends at Pisgah, but I was running late. So I told them to go on ahead. Thinking they had already started the hike, turns out they were waiting for me at the bottom of the other mtn. Still, I enjoyed this quiet trek alone. The path was a sheet of ice. But the white on everything was like starting over a new painting.
Being alone and making mistake can have it's rewards.
If I leave one room...they follow me into the next #seperationanxiety
(ps Dani really “loves” my new bean bag 🤷🏻♂️)
dōTERRA everyday - dogs need dōTERRA too!
Those kittens can drive Champion crazy! ❤️🐾 To help, we use copaiba to calm his nerves. He gets a daily dose of 1 drop on his gums in the morning. We also diffuse Balance while I’m gone.
This has really made a big impact on his stress & anxiety. It’s sorta his daily “chill pill” 😂 🗣👇🏻Do you use dōTERRA for your pets? Let me know what you’re using and how!!!
As I listened to the parents on last nights call tell me their ‘wins’ already in the first week of our program, I was eagerly writing ✍️ it all down in my note book and smiling for them.
One Mum said her child was calmer and had a “ I can do this “ attitude and was able to communicate his feelings more with her. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🥰 The words , “ am imagining this change?”were said, along with another lovely woman who shared that her child 🧒🏻 definitely was showing that they were feeling calmer and little things that usually would have been difficult for the child to work through, were now easier for them.
I’ve heard so many stories like this!! I shared a story myself on the call of a parent years ago who learnt with me and within a week her 3 year old was able to come off medication for toileting. He would hold on and cause himself pain and within a week he was going to the 🚽 potty 😀
The children’s nurse that they were seeing at the time said that they may as well now come off the medication.
What i love 🥰 about the things I’ve learnt and have to offer to people are that they are : *natural
*non-invasive *loving *empowering
*simple to implement with consistency *backed up with hundreds and hundreds of similar stories and research
As I logged out of last nights call I felt fulfilled and happy 😀❤️ This current group of women are on fire!!! They turn up to the calls, have lots of questions and are 💯 ready for change and learning.
Looking forward to the next 4 weeks with them 🙌🏻🙌🏻 How is your day going today? Drop me an emoji below to describe your feelings - challenged or happy- all is welcome 🙏🏻 😀❤️
My favorite girl 😌 fun fact: i had to have an emergency surgery when my baby was 2 mos. had to be away from her for 5 days. (Longest days of my life) Fast forward to today almost 7 mos old I haven’t been from my baby for more than 24hrs. But she’ll be by my mom for 2 days because I’ll be going back to work soon & have to get use to being away from her 😫#seperationanxiety #momlife #ilovebeingamom
Moving is damn emotional. I’m excited to go home and visit family this week, but ultimately I’m coming home to pack my stuff up and bring them to my new home which feels really heavy.
Also I miss my dog WAY too much and that’s probably mostly why I’m sad. Leaving him has been the worst part but I can’t wait to see him and play with his big cheeks🥰
