Living their life. Their way. Capturing memories for their storybook.
Anyone else threatening to chop off their three year olds tongue 100 times a day? Just me then? 🤦🏻♀️ #luckyhescute
Breakfast is the only meal that’s “easy” in our whare! Tillie wakes up every day screaming TOASTTTT! She loves breakfast! However, she won’t eat anything for lunch at daycare, and seldom eats the same dinner twice. You can almost guarantee that if she liked peas yesterday she will hate them today! Thank goodness for breakfast!

• Chocolate Strawberry Muffins, recipe by @inspiredtaste
These muffins almost didn't make it into the oven yesterday. I spooned the batter into the tins, got distracted, and found them on the table 5 minutes later. So I moved them to the stove (?), got distracted, and found them there another 5 minutes later. I really, really need some sleep! 😅
Thankfully I did make them, because this morning was one of those "give me all the chocolate and all the (cold) coffee" kind of mornings, and they are delicious. So chocolatey and the perfect muffin texture, definitely worth a try.
Also packed full of strawberries, which may be my favourite fruit. I cannot believe all the strawberry news this week, just awful. We'll be buying just as many as usual, and cutting them up just to be safe! 💛 •

Do you believe in special energy coming from big old trees?
I heard there is an old lady who comes to charge up from this tree. It seems standing here forever. It was as big as now when I was her age too🌳
Вы верите в особую силу больших и старых деревьев?
Оно было таким же большим и старым, когда я еще была маленькой девочкой. Интересно сколько ему лет. Я слышала, есть одна бабушка в соседнем селе, которая приходит сюда заряжаться энергией от него 🤔🌳
Cam aceasta este in ultima vreme expresia Antoniei. Se enerveaza repede cand nu ii iese ceva, se supara pana la planset si cu aruncari pe spate cand nu o las sa faca ce vrea (cum ar fi sa traga firele din priza); e o perioada foarte greu de gestionat si pentru mine, nu am mai trecut prin asta pana acum. Mamici, help me!
To all you mamas of baby boys...cherish these days of soft snuggles and sweet little coos! I’m currently in the armpit-fart-wrestle-non-stop-break-anything-remotely-fragile days and WOAH. I love it all, but man oh man it’s like 🌪🌪🌪 over here right now! 💙 #sendhelp #orwine

Last Day of holidaying today. So making the most of it. We even got a sleep in till 9am. (If you look closely you can see her top tooth)
We sit in mommy's tray and eat our toys. Sometimes we don't like the taste but we are determined to not let any toy feel left out. Mommy doesn't mind because honestly she is too exhausted to even care 😅
Okay not really but there is only so much that you can do to stop a baby from putting everything in his mouth. Germs are good. They build their inmune system. Too much care may lead to sensitive adults and I don't want that obviously. I think he is doing great and I am too 😎
Oh on another note, he is way cranky today and I don't know how am I going to get things done with that mood of his. How is your kid doing today?

Thank you September for summerlike weather 🚴
THIS IS SEVEN! This not so little boy has taught me far more than I could of ever imagined I would learn from him. I am forever grateful that he chose me to be his mum ❤
Doubled the definition of love 💕
Recently they’ve become a little more independent with sleeping. Before it was Brae always sleeping on my arm and Rou thinking of my tummy as his pillow but now for the most part, they just need my presence and a @slumberkin.
I’m sure this is just the beginning but it’s bittersweet having them grow so quick. I’m going to soak in as much babying I can get with them. And enjoy this freedom on days like this! 🙌🏻

Day 19: Knowledge Hub... I am a self-taught sewist, so I have learned from many sources (i.e. books, blogs, YouTube). But I feel like I’ve learned the most by testing patterns. I have tried new techniques and challenged myself in ways I never would on my own. Sooo... I went back and found the very first pattern I tested. I remember being completely giddy when I got the email from @jennuinedesign
letting me know I was chosen to help test the Verona Dress. That was almost 3 1/2 years ago!! Look at cute baby Everly ❤️ @houseofpinheiro #patterntesting #sewingpatterns #jennuinedesign #handmadeisbest #isewmyownclothes

I’m tired. I’ve been averaging about 3 hours of sleep a night. It’s safe to say that I’m in the midst of sleep deprivation. I know this because I have zero motivation to do all of the things that I love. My nutrition has suffered and I’m snacking more, I haven’t practiced yoga in weeks (and you know how much yoga means to me), and I’m struggling to find motivation to much else than change diapers and breathe. I want to feel the healthy vibrancy again. This is my turning point. This is my wake up call to care for myself.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY OUR CHARLIE GIRL!
Alina and Aunty Em love you so much!

Let the fall days consume us. 🙌🏻🍂 we had so much fun at greenbluff today with friends apple picking. Also, last year Rory was terrified of these sheep and this year he could not get enough! I was so proud of him for feeding them and getting that close to them. He was loving on them and kept saying “sheep” “sheep” “food!” I think that made his whole day.
A daughter is God’s way of saying, “thought you could use a life long friend.”
Oh this sweet soul! Her smile, her laugh, her heart, it’s all good. I remind myself of this several times as a day as she’s been challenging me in the toughest ways lately.
Sass and all, she’s definitely one of God’s greatest gifts He’s ever entrusted to me.
Soaking up these fall nights before they get too chilly! No pants necessary.🙅🏻♀️
Oliver is at this stage where he likes to stay between David and I. O doesn’t want to see any holding hands, no hugs, no touching for David and I. And of course we think it’s hilarious and continue to do it anyway, which gets O all in a tizzy.
But Oliver did tell us today he wants a baby sister. So I guess the stork will someday stop at our house. 😂 (and no, we are no way pregnant.)
She made the long drive here just for a couple days visit to surprise Hunter for his birthday (she even climbed inside a Tupperware bin on our driveway and Hunter was told he had a “special birthday delivery”. ☺️) My sister, best friend, and incredible auntie Lulu. The bond her and Hunter have is something else (and Tundra the husky too!). 💛🍂🌾🐕🎃
My 11 month old 💙 like how, when, how did this happen?? - Aiden you have the sweetest soul and whenever you see something you love especially food you let out the cutest little giggles. - You can easily say mama, da da, and bub bub bub.
- You shake your head no when you don’t want something and find it funny when we shake our heads back
- Your 3 favourite things are = your big sister, the dog and the vacuum cleaner (hopefully this sticks) - you love to pretty much eat everything like everything including shoes 🙈(let’s hope he grows out of this) - your smile lights up when you see something new and exciting and you completely rock our world. Love you baby boy!!! .

263/365 “Wherever you are be all there.” Today was a beautiful day to have off work, so we did important things like snuggle in bed, have a picnic lunch at the playground, pick apples, run around the park, and meet friends for ice cream. We’ll eventually get around to unpacking boxes, cleaning, and organizing!
Whenever I open the mail box it’s filled with sticks 😳
If you could stop being so darn handsome that would be great! Playing with our oily blends! #mamasboy
I sneak these pictures every time we walk into church. 😝😍
Yesterday morning Ryan had PT with his company at Waimea Bay. When this happens I take this opportunity to let the girls enjoy the sunrise at the beach themselves. This time I tried giving Bella (now 2 years old) some surfing lessons on her custom board made by Joshuay Bowles @lyric_woodworking
for her first birthday’s cakesmash. The waves were pretty strong and it was such a rush getting a taste out of surfing myself 🌊 🏄♀️ Camera: #Canon

We made the street extra happy tonight!! 🙂
I always loved bath time as a kid and I vividly remember doing just this. Laying back enough so your ears were under the water and things sounded funny. It was my happy place. This brought me back, and now watching him is my new happy place. #bathtime #kidsbeingkids #stopgrowingup
There’s not many people i’d live and die for, but you’re one of them. 🦀 #boilingcrab
Another photo from the weekend because we’ve hardly left the house this week. Highly anticipating @joemonbro
’s arrival home tonight & for my solo parenting stint to come to an end (he’s been gone since Sunday) but mostly looking forward to him making my coffee in the morning again ☕️ (& I guess I miss him a little, too... 😉) 💕#justmomlife #momconfessions #mamastakenote
