So much love in one tiny square! When did you feel like your siblings began to interact with each other more? Archie’s at the crawling stage now so lily loves that he chases her around! #catchmeeeee
We stayed in our jammies today, watched too much tv and played marvel action figures 👌🏻
So even though I'm an idiot and dressed her back to front (even though the day before I did a flat lay with it the RIGHT way) I still this she looks amazing which makes me think that this romper can just be turned around if it gets dirty right? 🤔
Shark bait! Shark Week starts on 7/22, are you ready?
~ 12 weeks ~ Halle Bear. My beautiful newborn, you are no longer. The days where I could curl you up in a ball and hug you close to my chest, are gone. The days where you love sleeping, feeds and more sleeping, are gone. The swift, startling responses, are slowly going. Instead these days, I have to use both arms and my chest to hold you still and snug, my baby. These days, you love to stay awake after a feed and watch me, your sisters or play on your mat, my baby. Your movements are more precise, you are reaching for what you want and becoming every bit more a baby, my baby, our forever baby, no matter the size or age. You will always be our baby, the perfect completeness, our lovely little Halle 💖
Big dressing little. Once Gus put that Spider-Man jacket on him, the tot didn’t want to take it off even though it’s 103 degrees. He just kept saying, “I can’t take it off—Gus made it for me.”
From her tiny little button nose to her chubby toes, I am obsessed with her. ♡ I still look at her sometimes and can’t believe she’s mine!
If I could just photograph all the babies that would be wonderful. 😍
When Luna is teething all schedules are thrown out the window. She tends to be grumpy all day, doesn’t seem interested in food, and naps/night sleep are all over the place. Fortunately after 10 months of being her mama, I’ve learned that “this too shall pass” and that as long as she’s happy then we can get back on schedule in a couple days once she feels better. Today, she decided she didn’t want to take a morning nap 🤦🏻♀️ She finally took one about 2 hours later though and hoping we can squeeze in one more before bedtime lol!

Dress by @kidsdreamus #gifted
Because it’s winter in the Southern Hemisphere my mom thinks this is acceptable attire 😂 #toocute
My kids love to see their baby photos and videos. They love to hear stories about them told over and over again. These are precious memories that I don't want to forget. How about your kids? Do they love to hear their baby stories? Watch their silly baby videos?
I love that gummy little smile! Enjoying I while I can because she is teething and we have a few trying to pop through 💗
On the blog today a family photo shoot in a eucalyptus forest. I didn't know a forest like that existed in the US. It was a cool new experience, plus it smelled so good!
Taking full advantage of this middle of the week rest day on our #liift4life
calendar and got my nails done for @sarrwarr
wedding this weekend!!
Waking up crazy sore from the first two workouts made it SO much easier to actually rest today! Next week I think i will do one of the foam rolling videos to lengthen my muscles back out, but today YEP I'm just resting!!! Do you struggle to take rest days and want to fill your calendar with activities that push you every day? Ya I've been there and felt like if I wasn't pushing hard 6 days a week I would lose progress!! Our bodies need time to rebuild so resting doesn't mean weakness! •
Our bodies don't respond well to stress!!! The more strict we get on our nutrition, the more we worry about when our workout will happen and stopping family activities or making them wait for our workout. The more rigid we get in our approach the more stress our body feels and adds unnecessary worry to living a healthy life! •
Listen to your body, train hard while you train, fuel your body with what it needs to continue to train like an athlete (yes that includes cookies 🍪 and ice cream 🍨sometimes) but most importantly RELAX and LIVE while you are not training! It's meant to add more to your life not stress you beyond belief and take you out of the present. @joelfreemanfitness
I am loving LIIFT4 already!

“There’s no business like monkey business...” just ask these two. They would know!
Glad to have made an overnight visit to Bruton again. Breakfast, lunch and dinner from @at_the_chapel
Hi there I’m Tami, the mom behind The Authentic Life. I love Jesus & my family and my passions are photography, art & writing. I also have bipolar, anxiety and depression but this does not define me, however it has made life a little tough recently. I’ve felt myself slipping for a while now, just slowly sinking into myself. See I’m always up for a good laugh and I have a huge smile that I wear very well, it helps me hide when things aren’t ok. I struggle to say it out aloud so maybe saying it on here will help me. I am not ok right now... but that’s ok. It’s ok to not be ok. This is not a pity party & I don’t want attention from it, I just needed to get it out and I’m not ready to do that verbally yet.
Motherhood is one big balancing act isn't it
Between being cook, cleaner, teacher and making sure I spend quality time with Jack & V - it doesn't leave much time for me (let alone me & Martin)
I'm looking forward to the six week break to take things a bit easier, most our home ed groups & activities aren't running through the holidays so it'll be really nice to be able to explore at slower pace ...and I'm going to *try* and read a book or two
Side by side or miles apart, Sister's will always be connected by heart❤
Waiting for our next adventure
Just a girl eating an apple. I always find that pockets of light give just the right amount of details in black & white. Snuck this shot of a friend's daughter eating her apple the other day 🍎😍
