I never said it was easy, but if you never try, you’ll never know🙏
It makes me so happy to see these two finally getting along well. It was not the case with Rio not loving the toe licks & Churro being jealous with all the attention he was used to. Keep introducing baby to pet and eventually they learn to love 👶🏻🐻

If I could give any new mom or mom to be any piece advice it would be this: as hard or trying some days are on this adventure of motherhood, make a point to CARE FOR YOURSELF. whether it’s 15 minutes of a devotional/personal development or 30 minutes exercise, a manicure or a massage, DO IT💗. Whatever your vice maybe be, you deserve it. Fill your cup and in turn you are able to pour into others. It’s going to be hard some days, impossible on the others but it’s the best thing you can do for yourself, your sanity and your family. Need help?

Oh… the things we did when we were little! Do kids have all the fun?! They always find new and unusual fun ways with water - the universal, no cost, fun plaything - it doesn’t need feeding, fixing (usually), batteries, or cleaning (ha ha)!
M O R N I N G 🤪 // Day 2 of our #RealMamaPAD
I opened the pantry this AM and to my utter horror realised we were out of breakfast food 😓
Even my go-to stingy layer of vegemite on a slice of frozen bread wasn't available....
My mini drill sergeant was hitting his 10th minute of constant whining and I didnt know how much longer I could sing "baby shark" on repeat before I succumbed to my own insanity 😳
So in the car we went at 6am to load up on carbs + coffee like a 20 yr old after a big night out (except for the baby part....and the going to bed at 8pm last night part 🙋♀️)
Billy was happy, I was happy and the lady at the café was happy (like I'm talking recreationally happy... seriously woman its 6 AM 🙄) Anyway look, it was bloody bliss and for a whole 15 minutes my baby didn't cry, bite or throw himself out of the carseat 💁♀️ so winnnnning!
PS How was your morning?! 😅 Jump on board my photo-a-day challenge and let me know! Deets in highlights ✌🏻☝🏻
The past year of my life and even more specifically the past few months I have spent feeling uncomfortable and frustrated.
You see I felt stuck and stagnant. I had been doing all the things you're supposed to do.
I got married. I had kids. I got my degree. I bought a house. I had a few really great jobs. I even started my own business. I did all of that quickly.
At the age of 25 I was stuck feeling like, what's next? What do I do next? I did all the things you're supposed to do. And for some reason I wasn't feeling fulfilled.
I felt there was more I was supposed to do, more I was capable of doing. I didn't know what or how.
So I dedicated a year of my life consciously working on me. Discovering me. Realizing my gifts, talents, and passions. Healing things and ridding myself of these weird belief systems and stories I told myself. And let me tell you that growth can be uncomfortable and stretch you until you feel like you can't be stretched anymore.
Deciding that I didn't like being a people pleaser anymore. Deciding that my intuition and my inner knowing had a path for me. Deciding that it's okay to have a truth that other's don't agree with. Deciding that I would never be happy making decisions based on what I thought other people wanted me to do.
I've had people disagree, I've had people be unhappy and uncomfortable with my growth, I've had people question me, and sometimes I have even questioned myself.
But what I decided was that I know what's right for me.
I decided that my truths are MY truths and they may be different from someone elses and that's okay.
I decided that the people who don't support me, were never my people.
I decided that I don't care anymore if anybody likes me or agrees with me, and if I'm being honest about my truth and beliefs, then the right people will.
I decided to be the next level version of myself and I'm not going to let other peoples limitations be placed on to me.
I decided that I don't need to look for validation from others anymore, because I have unshakeable, undeniable belief in MYSELF.

Are you traveling over the holidays with a little one(s)? As I’m sure we all know, bedtime outside of our home can be VERY challenging for kiddos and parents. 😩 I’ve got you covered with suggestions to help you and your little one get a great night sleep when traveling. 1 ~ This Ultra Lite Fisher Price Pack-N-Play is only 15 lbs 😱 and folds up in an easy-to-carry bag. 2 ~ My boys love(d) this Shrunks toddler travel air mattress. This also fits nicely into a little bag when the air is out and uses a crib sheet and also comes with a pump. 3 ~ This Kidco Peapod looks perfect for kids to sleep in while traveling. Love that it zips up and kids think they are ‘camping’ and it keeps them from getting out of bed. Also folds up into a small bag (which in my opinion, is key for travel). 4 ~ These Shrunks Inflatable Bed Rails tuck in under the sheet on any size bed. We actually use these for travel and everyday life for my boy’s beds so that they don’t roll off the bed. Also, folds into a very small bag and comes with a pump. Links in Bio ⬆️
What A week! In A few days Liam Will turn six months already. -
We took him home from the hospital after six weeks NICU, he did great but he needed A heart rate monitor that would registrate 24/7.
HUGE MILESTONE last monday, after almost 6 months, we brought it back to the hospital. The doctors said the results were great and he will do just fine!
Relieved, anxious, happy, always having the above in mind. But so proud how he developed. Now we just have to have some trust.
Scary, being a mother.
Christmas is serious business in this household, Santa is the number one favorite so it’s not surprising that we’ve already started decorating the house in preparation!!
It’s perfect timing because @ALDIAustralia
have released their Christmas trees and decorations! Harvey had a great time selecting what decorations he wanted for the tree and I couldn’t resist the gorgeous wooden Advent Calendar - it even lights up, see my stories!!🎄🎅🏻
So pop in store and stock up before they sell out!

Is it just me, or has raising children turned into a highly stressful, anxiety-ridden process? Our society puts SO MUCH PRESSURE on mothers who, in turn, put an immense amount of pressure on themselves to do ALL THE THINGS and be ALL THE THINGS for the children in their care.
We mothers often feel 100% responsible for our children’s behavior, success (or failure) and happiness (or lack thereof). If they misbehave, we feel guilty. If they do poorly in school, we take it personally. If they succeed, we feel validated. If they are unhappy, we wonder what we have done wrong, and worry about them growing up with psychological damage because of our mistakes.
I have been there, feeling guilty and responsible for my kids’ behavior and emotions. But I decided long ago that was not where I wanted to live. It was not good for me or the kids. Common sense tells me that taking on all that guilt absolved my children from accepting responsibility for their own choices - a NECESSARY part of being a good citizen.
Now, when my kids do something wrong, I let them feel guilty about it so I don’t have to. The responsibility is back on their shoulders where it should be. Mom guilt does not consume me anymore. It feels like freedom! Give it a try!

Day-to-day motherhood snapshot.
I was walking towards the bed to nurse Lydia and honestly stopped in the mirror so I could remember this moment. These moments we don't usually share; the dirty laundry on the floor, water cups I haven't picked up yet from last night, greasy mom buns, the toddler running around in his underwear when it's 40° out, and a baby that won't nap. These are the real motherhood moments, and what 90% of my days look like. Sometimes it feels messy, but I'm not sure there's anything else I'd rather be experiencing.
I'm not saying don't capture the "nice looking" shots, just that sometimes the real moments can be just as beautiful. So take the shot, it doesn't have to be perfect. I guarantee you'll be thankful you did.
Que si ser mamá te cambia la vida?
Obvio que si! Y te la cambia completamente.
1. Tus prioridades cambian 🗓
2. Conoces lo que es el amor más puro y genuino que existe, valoras más a tu mamá y entiendes que la vida es un milagro del cielo ❣️
3. Se te olvida lo que significa la palabra descanso y lo que es dormir 🛌
4. Entiendes en su máximo esplendor lo que es el sacrificio 👩👦
5. Te llenas de fuerza, esperanza, berraquera y ganas de vivir la vida de la mejor manera, por ti y por ellos 💪🏻
Pero en resumen: Es la mejor experiencia de la vida.

It’s pretty crazy how much my life has turned upside down since becoming a mom 😳 15 months ago I was on my schedule (which included doing my hair and makeup almost everyday) and being able to go to the store whenever I felt like it. I could meet my friends for drinks and go on a date night with my husband 👫⠀
Fast forward to now where our days are planned around his nap times and running a brush though my hair is the extent of my beauty routine most days. Plans with friends have to be on the calendar weeks in advance, and feeding him comes way before my hungry stomach. ⠀
I know it may seem like I am complaining, but I’m not. I’m just recognizing that it’s not always glamorous but it is 100% worth it every second of every day. Every time he does something new, or just looks at me with his beautiful smile I am reminded how blessed I am to be his mom, and I promise I don’t take this gift for granted 💝 ⠀
So if you are a mama just remember to stay positive and ask for help when you need it ♥️
Adriana finally gets her ID 😆
I will Love You
