She’s only in school half of the day and I feel like I don’t see her nearly enough. I can’t even imagine how much I’m going to miss her next year. This adjustment into school-aged children has been tough for me. Beyond getting used to the routine and the constant drop-off/pick-up, I find myself struggling with her being outside my reach. The influence of the world now a bigger presence in her life. I know this is good for her. I know that the world needs her light; her goodness, and her strength, but that doesn’t make my heart feel less longing for the simpler days when all my babies were mine, all day. Selfishly I want to keep her all to myself, and she’s the one always reassuring me how ready she is to fly 💛
The biggest debate we have with each new video we make is which one is our favorite. I love seeing you vote for your favorite and hearing your feedback and your texts and messages. It all means a lot to us and we love each of you for taking the time to watch our videos and we hope you enjoy watching them!
well, suffice it to say that our second annual trip to the pumpkin festival was waaaay less chill than our first. a rollercoaster of emotions, if you will. we laughed, we cried, one of us threw dirt onto a stranger’s shoe (not naming any names) then ran away screaming. oh, and we also forgot to actually buy pumpkins there so here we are with some corn. 19 months is not for the faint of heart. haaaappy fall, ya’ll! 🍂🎃🌾👒🌽🦇 #milojamespope #toddlerlife
t e x a s | Our five day adventure at the ranch has come to a close. A beautiful wedding and all the family time with aunts and uncles we haven’t seen in years. Plus, all my favorite cousins! Practically a family reunion that created so much goodness in my heart it feels as though it’ll burst. That or all the tears are going to fall like Niagra Falls. You know that sad feeling when Christmas vacation came to an end as a kid? Yeah, that’s where I’m at right now with the feels. The old saying is true though. Good things always come to an end. Until next time, fam! Us Coopers love you all dearly.
Strike me down and I will become more powerful than you can possibly imagine 🐻
I’m not the biggest fan of Halloween but when I saw this ADORABLE banner I thought twice. I definitely have a different appreciation for the holiday because of my boys. I’m not into the creepy stuff, I don’t like being scared, but I love watching my boys get excited for the costumes and candy. #momlife
Been trying o practice more drawing lately. 🤷🏼♀️
Just in case you were wondering what it looks like for a slightly overweight middle aged couple to rekindle their romance after 3 kids....
Marriage is something I’ve wanted to talk about on here for a long time but to be honest I couldn’t because our marriage was on the struggle bus. Sam and I have been married almost 9 years and we are just beginning to really see how good marriage can be. We sucked at being married in our early years and fought over stupid stuff like organic blueberries (but really everything always came down to money and unmet expectations). •
We’re sharing about how we failed at marriage and how we created a safe haven in our marriage on my podcast Sure Babe. (Link In Stories and Highlights). 📷 @risephoto.co
I asked Violet to smile and this was the outcome 🤣 ahhhh, kids.... #SillyKid #LoveHer
Year number two with these adorable horse boots! This little girl has the cutest fall wardrobe 😍
Pfeiffer had the time of her life at @daveandbusters last night! She was running all over the place and touching every button and light she could find! #pfeifferbenirose
Sweet dreams, little one. 🌙
My intention for this week: LOVE. Every day there are opportunities to see and feel and be love. Life with little babies is filled with unconditional love. Each diaper change, soothing bounce, and gentle touch are expressions of love.
Motherhood is love and love and more love. The outpouring of love can be exhausting, bewildering, and overwhelming. It can be too much. It can feel like anything but love — survival, anger, pain, and frustration... to name a few.
Can I hold onto love and also welcome all the other feelings that come along? Can I let those emotions flow through me? Feel and surrender and release my grip? And then can I keep on moving forward in love? I think it’s worth a try. #kaileeneliseintentions #growingbabysues
David has these random days off during the week next week so we are deciding if we should go on an adventure....hiking, climbing, backpacking... Got any great suggestions around the North Carolina Virginia areas for a fun outdoor trip? Let's see if you can persuade us!

Such a beautiful night for a photoshoot.😍🙌
Grace ✨ It’s a resounding theme in this season of life. Grace for myself, grace for those around me, grace upon grace. ✨ Our rooms may be messy, the beds may be unmade, but our hearts and home are full of love, sweet snuggles, newborn squeals, and toddler-designed birthday decorations 😍😍 I have a feeling 36 is going to be a great year.
Pro Tip: go to the pumpkin patch on a Monday. We had the whole thing practically to ourselves. 🙌🏼 Pro Tip # 2: Wander off the beaten path and explore on your own. You won’t be sorry. 🍎🍂🍁🌾🎃 #EfrenandEnnis
When I try to get a photo with my kids: 😩
Angry toddler ✔️
Stressed big kid ✔️
I think I might be literally rolling my eyes under those sunglasses ✔️✔️ #proofofmom
My little Goose and Maverick. These shirts are fun for everyday or dressing up for Halloween.
When you accidently, somehow post another photo. I guess that’s three for today. 😆 Why not! I guess it needed to be shared too. Three for the win. Love this image so much from last night’s Simple Sessions.
This little lady slept for 7 hrs straight last night 🙏 feeling very rested ☺️
What started off as a nice family walk, ended with a stupid argument, an emotional toddler + and over tired baby. Sometimes my expectations get the best of me, and it ends up biting me in the ass. Luckily, this afternoon turned out near perfectly. We made no plans, ended up playing mindlessly in the backyard for hours, and had such a nice little family dinner. We are far from perfect, but we do have some remarkable moments. #boymom #momof2 #honestmotherhood
What we do while Mac is on his 2nd week of hunting, hit three pumpkin patches in one day! Last day of Fall break for these girls.
She insisted on giving this pumpkin a bow when she carved it this weekend and... it’s my favorite part.
I need this on my porch ASAP 🧡
Added these little cuties to the entryway bench 🎃
Fall walks with our @uppababy

is one of my favourite things 🍂
I’ve never met a stroller I’ve loved more, and I’ve tried a few over the past 7 years. This stroller is beautiful, the brown leather kind of sold me 🤪 But there is more to love then that. •
It drives like a dream, the piggyback board was the best attachment we could have ever got for our stroller, and I’m always impressed by how good of off roading it can do 👌🏻 The basket is huge. I always get asked if this stroller is worth the investment, and it’s a 💯% yes from us!! #Uppababy #Westcoastkids #UbCRUZ #Uppababycruz
Smiling because my laundry pile is about to be a little smaller for the next ten days 🙌🏻 Have you guys heard of the #fall10x10challenge
? I’ve been fangirl-ing from afar but I’m finally jumping in for this round. 10 pieces, 10 outfits, 10 days! I’m doing it because I think it’ll make getting dressed easier and #momlife
I’m on a never ending quest for more simplicity around here 😜 #stylebee10x10 #fall10x10
Take me back to that newborn smell & those newborn cuddles... 😩 What do you miss most about the newborn stage?! 💕

Pumpkin patch fun with this cutie!!
There aren’t many other moments in life when I’m much happier than when my arms are of full of these boys. 💙💙💙
i wasn’t going to post anything tonight , then i came across these two from yesterday ❤️ i’m in a leadership course for work that involves a personal coaching session, and the coach said to me that she had studied buddhism and gave me a quote along the lines of “ you are exactly where you are supposed to be”... and this week it has really helped ...and i googled... as you do...and i came across this which made my night : “because right where you are in this moment—even in all this imperfection and mess and steps still left to take—is exactly where you’re supposed to be.
Thousands of moments led up to this. Hundreds of decisions and actions. Millions of tiny thoughts and mistakes and blessings have brought you here. And here is good.” have a good night friends, life is really good if you let it. “

. Loving you always.
I will love you through anger.
I will love you through tears.
I will love you through misunderstandings.
I will love you through hurt feelings and broken hearts.
I will love you through tantrums and meltdowns.
I will love you through any discomfort of growing pains.
I will love you through figuring this whole messy, beautiful life out.
I will love you through any joy, I will love you through any pain.
I will love you when we bicker, when we yell, when we argue, when we disagree.
I will love you when we fail. And I will love you when we win.
I will love you when you’re on top of the world. And I will love you when you’re feeling lower than low.
I will love you at your best, I will love you at your worst.
You are part of me. You are an extension of who I am. I am your cheerleader, your supporter, your nurturer, your safe space, your confidant. I will always be here for you for the rest of my days. The good, the bad and the ugly, baby. I will be right here. •
And I will love you through it all. This I can promise you. ❤️
It’s like babies can just smell us moms relaxing 😌 🙄
But being in town with my parents is so blissful. Not only am
I feeling so relaxed but watching Aira spending time and being pampered by her grandma grandpa gives me a warm fuzzy feeling of how special is this bond. Honestly, many lessons can be learnt from forging this relationship but to me it’s the memories that you are creating for your kids to cherish forever ❤️😍💕 .
☝️ my face all weekend! so much joy all around.
i got to celebrate some of my favorite human beings with some of my favorite human beings. 💛

Stroller naps. 💤 Better with Mimos. I remember when the ONLY way my first born would nap was in the stroller for a period of 3-4 months. I was so glad that I had Mimos and didn’t have to worry about his plagiocephaly worsening. His head rounded out quickly and the rest is what you say “history”. 😊
I guess a positive to not having furniture is that it makes renovations super easy to start and clean up. One day....one day, this will all be finished. Until then, here is a video of breaking apart the tile. *** Hey, if anybody is interested in what I want for a Christmas present, my size comes is a Home Depot gift card. 😂
I made a few sets of these cute Halloween notebooks for a client a few weeks back. Perfect for cute little gifts. Which one is YOUR favorite? 🎃👻🦇
AND I can’t wait to share with you the Christmas set!! 3 notebooks complete 1 set. The Christmas ones always sell out quick! Who’s excited!?🙋🏼♀️
we were going to pick out pumpkins but the patch was closed so we got cookies instead 😋
