Who does your baby look more like? I've been told I look like my son's nanny. And one time when I was in Vegas a foreign tourist asked to take a picture of me and my white blue-eyed baby.๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ So yeah...my son looks just like his dad. . . . #saltlakecityphotographer #utahphotographer #familyphotographer #maternityphotography #newbornphotography #fresh48 #utahnewbornphotographer #pregnantandperfect #TheBump #pregnancydiary #inspirepregnancy #bumpsociety #motherhoodrising #pregnancyzone #momblogger #pregnancystyle #stylethebump #ig_maternity #honestmotherhood #themotherhoodcorner #maternityfashion #mamaswithstyle #stylethebump #joyfulmamas #bumpbirthandbeyond #ohheymama #bundleofjoy

What I remember more then anything else about her birth is this moment right here. Of course nothing can beat that first time your beautiful babe is placed on your deflated belly and you canโ€™t take your eyes off them as you study every little detail; but when the adrenaline is pumping it all goes by so fast that itโ€™s a blur. This moment right here is when it all hit me, and time stood still. All was calm and quiet as I stood at my bedside in my (stylish ๐Ÿ˜‰) mesh panties and nursing bra after having a quick rinse in the shower while the midwives changed the sheets and cleaned up. I looked over to see our beautiful baby girl swaddled so contently at the end of our bed, Aaron joined me and we stared at her together as we embraced. A wave of emotion came over me and tears started pouring down my face as I played the whole thing over in my mind and soaked it all in. We did it; I did it; and she was perfect โค๏ธ Nothing else mattered and no one else existed in this moment except him and I and our beautiful baby.โค๏ธ Kyla thank you for not only capturing those big moments that were all a blur to me, but also for capturing these quiet moments that are just as much a part of the story I will tell her one day about the day she was born. You are truly a storyteller and an amazing friend ๐Ÿ’• ๐Ÿ“ท: @aspect.natural.photography . . . . . . . . #ajoygreater #dearestviewfinder #dearphotographer #mytinymoments #documentyourdays #momtogs #momswithcameras #cameramama #dailyparenting #uniteinmotherhood #my_magical_moments #runwildmychild #ourweekendstories #our_everyday_moments #38weeks2days #pregnant #momtobe #birthphotos #motherhoood #memoirsofmotherhood #bumpbirthandbeyond #honestmotherhood #bumpsociety #normalizebirth #candidchildhood #6lbs8oz #collinsjoy #letthekids #birthwithoutfear #takebackpostpartum
This moment is EVERYTHING. She told me when we meet months ago that she was thinking about catching her own baby. I really can't think of anything else more empowering that that right there. She delivered her baby with minimal help but so much support.

Not going to lie, things have been stressful lately but this. Feeding, snuggling and smelling my baby in my pjs at home. This is what life is all about. All the other stuff is just noise. Noise that keeps me from enjoying whatโ€™s really important.
Her husband never left her side and was her rock. From the moment I walked in to the moment I left he was right by her side. His movements and soft touches did most of the talking for him but when he spoke it was all the right things at the right time. #huckleberrycloudphotography #boisephotographer #boisebirthphotographer #boisenewbornphotographer #ohheymama #birthwithoutfear #babiesofinstagram #birth #birthphotographer #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherly #postpartum #smalpresets #thatsdarling #birthphotographer #thebirthcollective #bumpbirthandbeyond #boisedoula #birthphotography #birthphotos #ipreview #dontforgetaboutdads
Ever since Iโ€™ve gone blond my hair has been a chronic tangle zone. (Thatโ€™s what I get for bleaching it, I know.๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ) Iโ€™ve tried all of the hair brushes. ALL OF THEM, Yโ€™ALL. After much frustration I finally found a winner. The Bathpack is where itโ€™s at! My hair is SO much easier to comb and has wayyy less breakage. The best part? Itโ€™s only $5! I even ordered Charlotte her own Mini Bathpack because sheโ€™s been stealing mine to brush her hair (or lack of) too!๐Ÿ˜†
Supplemental nursing system (SNS) More like a breastfeed than cup or bottle feeding, it can help a baby to use the correct technique for #breastfeeding . There can be situations where a breastfed baby must be separated from their mother but wonโ€™t take a bottle. Short term alternatives such as cup feeding or syringe feeding are possible, but finger feeding could be another short term solution.
Your nurses love you. Everyone deserves to be loved - especially a woman in labor. And you always remember how you are treated during your birth. What was the name of your L&D nurse? Mine was Jill. ๐Ÿ’• ............................................................... #seattlebirthphotographer #northwesthospital #nursing #nurselife #yournurselovesyou #birthphotographer #birthphotography #childbirth #seattlebirthphotography #birth #birthsupport #birthworkers #birthmatters #epiduralbirth #birthwithoutfear #optionssupportrespect #birthstory #thebirthhour #birthisbeautiful #push #yougotthis #bumpbirthandbeyond #birthisforfamilies #hospitalbirth #birth_photography #bumpnbub

Back when we could all breathe and sleep.. momma didnโ€™t have a sinus infection. Little miss Winter has basically been crying the last 24 hours.. and I feel so bad for her.. more cuddles, humidifiers and nose drops it is..

This little chunk is 8 weeks old! . . At his check up this week Baby Bo hit 12lbs! How crazy is that?! Bring on the baby rolls, my favourite! ๐Ÿฅฐ . . Our Dr. suggested now that heโ€™s hit a good weight that we start sleep training and doing some โ€œdream feedsโ€ to get him sleeping longer through the night. Any suggestions on good sleep training books, tips or tricks?

Hey yโ€™all! Several months ago I started using a new beauty line, Maskcara. โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข Never heard of it? I hadnโ€™t either! โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข Now, I use their ENTIRE collection of products - makeup, facial products & cleansers, brushes, etc. I AM OBSESSED. So obsessed that I decided I wanted to share these amazing products with you too! โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข 1. Iโ€™m not doing this to quit my day job. (I worked way too hard for that MBA.๐Ÿ˜…) โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข 2. Iโ€™m not going to be a pusher. Iโ€™ll simply just share why I love these products & my use of them! (With SO MANY opportunities for you to win & earn FREE products along the way.) โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข 3. I will share with you all that I can because this brand and these products are LIFE. โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข Since Iโ€™ve transitioned my entire makeup and skincare routine to Maskcara products my skin has cleared up, it feels better than it ever has & I leave the house looking like I ACTUALLY know how to do my makeup (even contour!). โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข Maskcara is known for their IIID foundation & HAC method. I am so excited to share all of these products with you in hopes you love them as much as I do! (Because letโ€™s be serious, my husband is sick of listening to me rant and rave about it & would kill for me to have someone else to share these things with!) โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข If youโ€™re familiar with the products & have considered joining the Maskcara team, today is literally the best day of the year to do it (and Iโ€™m not just saying that) โ€” itโ€™s their 2 year anniversary! Let me know if youโ€™d like info! โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€œYouโ€™re not one dimensional and your makeup shouldnโ€™t be either.โ€๐Ÿ’—

Ah, honestly as much as I am loving getting a bath lately cos it soothes my achey back...I am now like a turtle on their back, the struggle of getting out the bath by myself is real!

Our 4 month appointment went great we are 14lbs 12oz and still negative for microscopic blood ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ So now I get to start adding foods back into my diet one at a time a few weeks apart to find the true culprits! . As exciting as it is to be making progress I am actually extremely apprehensive to start eating foods again. Knowing that something I add in is probably going to upset her again definitely plays tricks on your mind. . However the pediatrician is very optimistic that she will outgrow most if not all of these allergies considering itโ€™s all G.I. upset and she doesnโ€™t break out in hives or have any other type of symptomatic reaction so fingers crossed for future!!! And thank you Jesus for a healthy baby girl ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ€. โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #unitedinmotherhood #momlife #ig_motherhood #momlifebelike #parenthood #newparents #thebump #motherhoodmoments #thisismotherhood #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodthroughig #beautifulbabygirl #mamalife #postpartumjourney #bumpbirthandbeyond #inspirepregnancy #babylove #mommyandme #breastfeedingmama #normalizebreastfeeding #parenting #parentlife #babiesofinstagram #raisingthefuture #motherhoodrising #momswithcameras #letthembelittle #mamahoodinsquares #babiesofinstagram

Our blessing box features our hamsa teether, a white sage bundle, and a beautiful hand lettered verse by my talented friend @quickquillnotes โ€ข I recited this verse over my growing belly so frequently during my pregnancy with Gabriel. Each time I pack up one of these blessing boxes, it feels as if Iโ€™m sharing a piece of this little light of mine with the world. โค Blessed be this baby This baby is love This baby is light May this baby know love May this baby have wisdom May this baby have strength of body, of mind, and of spirit. May this baby know thyself. May this baby have awareness and be awake. Blessed be this baby. May this baby's life be filled with all good things.
They were learning right away that their beautiful baby born at 38.4 weeks, weighed 10 pounds/ 4.6kg. I love the expression of their faces.
The placenta is no longer there! This vascularized organ that has controlled all the hormonal systems of the maternal body during the last six months of pregnancy suddenly disappears. BOOM. This abrupt loss completely transforms the natural feedback bonds of the hormones between them. This drop in the hormones of pregnancy is one of the reasons for the emotional lability that the new mother experiences in the days following a delivery. Donโ€™t neglect the 4th trimester.
Deep sleep between contractions, cuddled by her love. An endorphin lullaby... Donโ€™t forget that the baby also benefits from his mother's endorphins. ๐Ÿ™

Madison, you are outgoing and strong willed. You know what you want and you go and get it. You are hilarious and have such a great little personality about you, not to mention the most hilarious laugh. You are so incredibly smart and learn so fast. You are tall just like your brother and you look just like your Nana, redish hair and all. Your eyes are just like Daddy's and your hair is crazy like mine. You are my little porcelain doll and I adore everything about you, especially when you play with your piggies. You have grown and changed so fast this year and it has been amazing to watch.

You guys supported it immensely & now we have ~30k insta followers & a few thousand subscribers. โ€ข โ€ข We have recently dipped into the online boutique business selling baby apparel + accessories. Since you guys are AMAZING that is doing well too! โ€ข โ€ข That success is giving us the opportunity to start offering kids + womenโ€™s clothing starting February 1.

Me today.
Parenting can be messy (see exhibit Aโ˜๏ธ), exhausting and a total time stealer. We all want to find "me" time in our busy lives, but putting self-care into action is a whole other ball game. We asked our community of mamas how they self-care, and heard from @meghanjoytoday @slduke & @alliedarr on ways they make it happen. Head to our story to check out their advice! Spoiler alert: a daily shower = serious self-care. -โ € -โ € -โ € -โ € #nomoreoldbabyfood #thepursuitofjoyproject #momsofinstagram #mommyhood #momlifeisthebestlife #mommylife #simplychildren #childofig #our_everyday_moments #mytinymoments #itsfreshbaby #babyblends #babybump #bumpbirthandbeyond #justpregnant #expectingmoms #firsttrimester #secondtrimester #thirdtrimester #momlife #newbaby #maternity #heymama #cozyandpregnant #healthypregnancy #theartofpregnancy #pregnantwithstyle #countingtheweeks #firstthousanddays #firstbitesmatter

We are finally learning to celebrate our postpartum bodies. In this instagram community, Moms are sharing their stretch marks and saggy skin with pride. The movement is powerful. When I got pregnant with Ryder, I said I wasnโ€™t going to body shame my own body. That I was going to remember how hard the fourth trimester is, remember that breastfeeding is a long exhausting journey and understand the intense thought process, care, and navigating it takes to manage two children, and here I am feeling proud of all that my body has accomplished. Proud that my body is solely responsible for feeding my baby. Its amazing. BUT the process is not easy. Its incredibly hard to feel like you aren't meeting societyโ€™s expectations. Messages about what you are supposed to look like everywhere, from images of celebs bouncing back, the bootcamp testimonials with before and afters, to people on here trying to sell you their workout routines, products, etc. Iโ€™m trying my best to adjust to this new life - a mom of TWO and thatโ€™s hard enough right now. Iโ€™m remembering to be kind to myself and to embrace my body for what it is right now. Its NOT easy and if any other mamas are out there feeling the same way, you are NOT alone. We got this.
Our (sometimes) Happy Babe ๐Ÿƒ . . Someone slept in their crib for the first time last night! He still woke up every 3 hours to feed and be changed but he was in bed from 9pm to 9am ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป . . Having a colicky babe, I canโ€™t say heโ€™s always happy like this, so I take the smiles where I get em ๐Ÿฅฐ
