“Every brunette needs a blonde best friend.” 👧🏽💕👱🏻♀️ Does anyone else have kiddos that look like complete opposites? I love the differences between the girls!
Chloe just wanted to sit in the slide tonight. And she refuses to smile for pictures. 💁🏻♀️
ФосецА 👼🏻 9 месяцев мальцу 🎉😅
Даже не верится 😁
Стоит ли говорить про зубы? 😂 их уже и так видно невооруженным глазом 👀😊
За этот месяц малыш, по мимо «ма-ма» и редко «па-па», научился говорить «мням-мням» 😋 ну и «да-да-да-да» и «я-я-я-я», когда гневИтся 😂
Ползает со скоростью света и ходит возле опоры 🙃
Ржёт до слёз над старшими 😆 и переходит на общий стол 🍲🍚
Умеет целоваться 💋 и делать 😝 со слюнями в разные стороны 😆🤗
Поднашивает одежду старшего брата, которую тот носил в 1-2 🙈
Любимые игрушки: ложки, поварёшки, кастрюли, целлофановый пакет 😂
У вас так же, да? 😂😂😂
Целлофановый пакет мне ни одну минуту спокойствия подарил 😅🙏🏻 😆
Офигенская вещь 😄👍🏻
Про то, что это наш всеобщий любимчик 🧡, думаю говорить не стоит 😉
Фиг знает че ещё сказать 🤷🏼♀️ А! Спонсор нашего третьего комплекта постельного белья - @marusik78
😋 спасибо, Марин, за такой чудесный подарок на годовщину 😘

Trying to savor every last moment with this boy before he goes back to schools. #GDClivethegood
We’ll just go ahead and add this adorable hooded towel from @swaddlez
to the list of worlds softest towels. And we’ll add this fluffy cheeked sister to the list of worlds most adorable four year olds. ✨
You can go ahead and snag yourself one of these post bathtub treasure via the link on their page btw! And yes it does come with an equally magical wash cloth. 👌🏾
This little boy:
-Is extremely excited about spaghetti.
-Attempted to stand without any support at all tonight... in the bathtub of all places... and succeeded for just a quick moment.
-very sweetly took the washcloth from me to wash my face 😍
Love our neighborhood and neighbors so much! So grateful we stumbled upon this gem a little over 6 years ago since moving from Florida. Glad we got outside to catch this beautiful 🌈. #blessed #balancedfamily #letthembelittle
favourite activity: Bathing 🛁
New mummies who is afraid of bathing your lil one at a start because they are so fragile, consider getting this: Simply Good bath floaty from @miniandtot
! Floating on this pillow feels just like in the womb so your baby will be relaxed during every bath! The floaty’s special design fits all babies’ bodies and keeps their heads out of the water. No more stress, mummies!
🌞 I’m trying H A R D to be present and enjoy these last few days of summer break. .
I keep looking at my kids and imagining that they’re 5 or 10 years older. My youngest will probably tower above his sisters, and I bet they won’t want to just go on the slide a million times, and cover themselves in sand. .
Being with these kids 24/7 can take its toll (#soloparenting
up in here for a bit), but I’ve found myself telling them “yes” more than “no” lately, and it’s bringing more joy and less fighting/yelling during our days. Go figure. .
Let them be little is what I keep telling myself. Because these babies certainly don’t keep. .

The moments unexpected are the best ones yet! Today it hit me that I am going to be able to actually be a yes mom! I cannot wait to surprise her with beast in person! Since I am finally able to physically be able to be the mom I’ve been wanting to be for years. Health issues, are no joke! I am so beyond grateful for all that gods given me and the changes he has brought into my life this year! The little moments are the best moments.
I’ve been realizing lately that I haven’t been taking care of myself in the name of taking care of my family, which in the end really means I’m not taking care of them as well as I could be! I’m trying to admit to myself that it’s ok to take time for myself, to be alone, to ask for help, etc. Tonight that looked like wandering the aisles of Target by myself! Is taking time for yourself easy for you? Or hard? What do you do to recharge? (Photo from this past weekend... Nathan’s jumping attempt was admirable!)
My daughter and I created @beetlebottoms
to celebrate the magic of childhood - we have had such a beautiful journey and now it is time to move onto new adventures .
Keep sharing the magic!
You can shop our closing down sale till September 1st 💞
Mum and I started Beetle Bottoms with the dream of sharing fun and love with children, we wanted to encourage children to explore the outdoors, use their imaginations and love who they were.
We have been so blessed to share this amazing journey with all of you and from the bottom of our hearts thank you for helping us make our dream a reality.
Your photos and stories of your children enjoying the Beetle Bottoms have brightened our days.
We love our Beetle Bottoms but feel like we have reached the end of our journey with them for now so will be closing the doors on the first day of spring 2018.
Spring is a time of new beginnings and we have many magical plans and projects brewing happily away ready to be birthed in the coming months and years.
Until then we want to spread as much fun around the world and give you all one more chance to buy our books, games and decals in our closing down sale.
Until 1 September you will be able to buy everything for $5 after that we will be donating the remaining books and games and they will no longer be available for purchase.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Each and everyone of you have been apart of our dream coming to life.
Happy girls after bath time! I must have thousands of pictures of my baby girls. I wish I could live in these moments forever but pictures will have to do!
Nana and Vivian are getting along pretty well 🐾🍼
Soaking in all the snuggles. 😌 20 weeks pregnant today meaning we are halfway there! 🌱 Also, a few people have asked how homeschool was going. It has been going great! Today after we were finished with our core subjects, we researched George Washington (Mason’s choice). Did you know George Washington was homeschooled too? He was also the only president to be unanimously elected. I did not know this! The quote “When one teaches, two learn” couldn’t be more true. So blessed to be able to teach and learn with my kiddos. 🙏🏼 #20weekspregnant #momofthree #homeschoolmom
This little one loving the swing!!
Between the mom guilt of am I doing enough, the daily anxiety of everything 😆 and the near head lock to get teeth brushed at night I’m soaking up every day of cuddles, hugs and “luv oo mommy” before crashing on the couch each night before bed. ❤️☀️❤️☀️
One year ago today when my baby was a groovy, cool and chubba 6month old! He still is all those things but now a toddler running around, chatting and keeping everyone very busy. What a year! Best time ever! 💙☺️ It’s crazy looking back on photos and seeing how much they have changed in such a short amount of time. It’s a bittersweet feeling. What are your feelings when old photos come up?

This little boy, y’all 😍 He drives me absolutely bonkers sometimes, but he’s sweeter than a 25lb bag of pure sugar.
All she ever wants to do is dance, especially if it’s with her dad, and especially if she can wear a princess dress. One thing that I’m really glad we have done since she was itty bitty is daddy date nights. They usually consists of chikfila and cupcakes, or popcorn and a movie, but she never gets tired of dressing up for him, and I’ll never get tired of seeing that sleepy fulfilled smile when she gets home.
Today it was simple and consisted of “tea time” and a dance party, but I have to say, I think it was one of the best. (Watch my stories 😍) we have definitely seen how investing in her and getting to know her better plays into her attitude and behavior. They are just people too and really just want to feel known and understood, and the only way we can do that is by creating space and making time.
Let’s talk about opportunity and setting goals to reach your fullest potential. I really love this quote by Barbara Corcoran. I work my mama hustle every night. I look left and right (and up and down, and then zig-zag all over the place) to meet and work with so many other amazing mom-owned and handmade businesses, strengthen friendships, and think outside of the box. I truly believe finding opportunity is a matter of believing it is there! This amazing woman and entrepreneur is the queen of it all. That is why she is my choice for #altdreamkeynote
. She had more than 20 jobs before she turned 23! 20!! If that is not impressive drive, I don’t know what is. It has taken 10 years for me to get my business in a place where I am truly providing for my family and enjoying every moment of what I do (sometimes I question that at 3am when I am still working). If you have never read about her journey, seen her speak in person (I have yet to), or learned about the many businesses and makers she has supported and took under her arm, I encourage you to look her up. It would be a dream to hear @barbaracorcoran
speak in person and I hope one day I will get the chance to see her face-to-face. Who is your inspiration ? What drives you? Do you find comfort in this quote?
When all else fails take a nap ☾
Last night at 11:59pm, Nathan asked me to dance as the clock turned over to our 9th anniversary ❤️❤️
Nine years ago, on a very warm Friday night in West Virginia, I walked down the aisle with wildflowers in hand to marry my dearest, best friend!!! We celebrated with our closest friends and family on the lawn that evening with funfetti cake by the light of the moon, tiki torches, evergreens covered in twinkly lights ✨!!!
As we danced in the kitchen, we both were just in awe of all that has come to pass in these few short years — the good, the beautiful, the tender mercies, the holy hard 😭🙌🏻
God has blessed us greatly and our hearts are full of joy!!! THIS IS US!!! Love you forever, Nathan Vail!!! XO.
