double posting today because I’m feeling all fallish even though it’s 90 outside. #putthataconblast
Sometimes I feel like this Physio office is a second home and our therapist has almost achieved "aunty" status. Today we were told that our chunkster is about 3 months behind his peers in the motor development area. No mom wants to hear that her child isn't keeping up with normal developmental milestones. Oliver has a friend who is 10 days younger than him and it is SO hard for me to watch him stand, crawl and walk along furniture when my own baby is just learning to sit and can't bear any weight in his knees or feet. I have spent much time learning that babies develop at drastically different rates and just because they 'missed a milestone' doesn't mean that it won't be met. We are grateful and confident that Oliver will catch up to other children his age and in the meantime we are accepting and loving each child we meet, just as they are. .

“We belong together
We belong together
Oh, it's true
It's gonna stay this way forever
Me and you” 💛
3.5 years ago, this little was three years old. 😭😭😭 Time, you’re a dirty thief.
When I say these little bottles of plants have changed our lives, I’m not blowing smoke up your butt. They have actually totally changed the course of our family’s health history.
She has a family history of childhood cancer on one side and of cancer of female reproductive organs on both sides of her family tree. I get to use safe, clean, nontoxic products that don’t screw up her hormones or cause a bioaccumulation of toxic chemicals in her body. That is a gift, friends!
She does not remember how she was sick all the time before we started using oils. She doesn’t remember the amount of sleep we all lost because everybody was sick and coughing and sneezing all night long. She doesn’t remember how many days of stuff we missed because we were sick. She doesn’t remember how stressed out her mother was. 😬🤦♀️
All she remembers is being well - being healthy, being happy because she’s getting great emotional support from oils, being well-rested, and being able to clearly articulate what she needs to express. That is a gift.
You need these plants in your life. You need them before the season of winter ickiness happens and Young Living is making it EASY for you today. Through midnight tonight, all Premium Starter Kits are 10% off. They are a STEAL and you’re getting 11 bottles of the highest quality oils that WORK, plus a diffuser. Maggie is holding one of her favorites- the Dewdrop. We also love the Desert Mist Diffuser!
I have an audio class I will send you to help answer any questions you have. Let me know you want it and it’s YOURS!
What’s holding you back today? Tell me 👉🏻👉🏻👉🏻 I am here to help you and your family take charge of your health and wellness. 💗

When I first became a stepmom seven years ago, I thought "Wow, this will be fun to have two daughters!" What I didn't realize was how much of an affect divorce can have on kids. What I didn't realize was the anger, jealousy, bitterness and resentment that came with it. The sleepless nights. The anxiety. Sadness. Tears. The confusion. .
I did the best I knew how to as a new stepmom to a 6 and 8 year old. I don't regret anything, as I feel God worked everything out for good. But I will say it's been a long, hard road to travel. I've learned when and how to pick my battles, I've learned to become their friend first then to be a parent, and I've learned my insecurities play a big part of my stepmom role (God's still helping me with this one!)
Being a stepmom has led me to help other children going through a divorce. My struggles and experiences have helped them understand more of their feelings and what their parents are going through. I love being a part of the DC4K ministry and giving other children hope in such a dark time during their lives. .
My girls are now 13 and 15 years old, and while our relationship is not a typical mother/daughter relationship, I do feel we have grown to love and respect each other and continue to strengthen our relationship each day. ❤

READ UNTIL THE END: To say I’m having a rough day would be an understatement... I’ve had a tough 48 hours with a sick baby and no sleep. Amelia finally fell asleep for a little bit (after hours of crying... BOTH of us). I decided to make a cup of coffee, and treat myself to @nutella
, strawberries and @msrachelhollis
‘Girl, Wash Your Face.” I’m already starting to relax and feel a bit better.... .

(There will also be a $100 PayPal cash option). Good luck & keep your heads up ladies!
✨Wake Up. Be Fabulous. Repeat.✨
I’ve always been a bit of a crunchy gal but being a mama kicked me into high gear. When I started doing my research and realizing how many “reputable” baby products contain synthetic fragrance and toxins banned in so many other countries... I threw up all the flags. Formaldehyde? In baby stuff? In consumables? Not in this house 🙅🏻♀️
Do your research, friends! Do any of your products contain these highly toxic ingredients?
Bisphenol-A (BPA) You've probably heard of the hormone-disrupting chemical BPA. ...
Propylene Glycol. ...
Flame Retardant Chemicals. ...
Kick those products to the curb. Forget how pretty the bottle is or misleading words like natural, pure, or organic. If they contain these chemicals they are not safe🌿
the ultimate mom-shield 🛡: that "go to" pair of oversized shades 🕶 to hide the bags, the wrinkles, the shadows, the puffiness, the overall exhaustion... ...some might think i'm more put together than usual 💃, with blowdried hair and lack of yoga pants. really though, i'm a hot freaking mess,🤤. but i survive my day, protected by my shield, from all the ass holes, waiting to ask if I'm sick because i, "look so tired". 🖕😎

We’re going to pretend it’s still summer until the clock hits October 1. After which, we’re going to pretend the only thing that exists is falllll and Halloween. 🤗 Do people live any other way though?

You guyyyyys 😭😭 I actually cannot with this 😩😍 I took Tatum’s 7 month pictures today, only 10 days late 🤦🏻♀️ #momlife
, right? 😐 and since Hailey is her favorite member in this household, I knew she had to be a part of them. It’s been so fun to see Hailey grow more comfortable with Tatum, and though I wouldn’t go right to like, she tolerates her much better these days 😅
Yes, she does!! 🙋🏾♀️ What's your favorite football team?

“We have a secret in our culture, and it’s not that birth is painful. It’s that women are strong.” ✨
Here I am 9 months pregnant, five months ago. This is me at my biggest, puffiest, but most excited. This honestly feels like it was forever ago...it almost makes me forget about all the symptoms I had...almost 😂
Probably the worst symptom I had was the “morning” sickness (more like all day). I spent a good 60% of my pregnancy nauseas and vomiting. I got SO swollen from my hands, feet, and face. I had skin discoloration, lower back pain, I got super clumsy, and I gained 50 pounds in total (still have 9-10 pounds to lose, but I’m in no rush). 😬
At the time that this picture was taken I wanted nothing more than to meet him. I kept thinking, “how could I possibly get any bigger?!”. Writing it out makes it seem like it was a lot, but I’d say that overall it was a healthy and happy pregnancy. Feeling him move inside of me was unreal and made me so excited to meet him. ✨
Pregnancy taught me that I’m so much stronger than I thought. Pregnancy and labor can be such a challenge, and honestly it’s what I’m most proud of! Every pregnancy is different, what was your pregnancy like? Was it what you expected? ✨
Lately I've been feeling more tired, no idea why. Maybe it was from being out of town for two weeks🤷🏻♀️. I'll tell you one thing, traveling is definitely different and from now on (planes only) at least for now ha.
Am I the only one who feels exhausted!? I just woke up this way. And what to do?
Happy Tuesday!! Anyone else in the mood for a nap?! The terrible twos are draining the life out of me today and the rainy day doesn’t help. if only toddlers had lazy days 😂 On a brighter note- the 90 degree weather is finally gone! I’m so sick of sweating [boob sweat and pit stains you won’t be missed] I’m thinking about baking some goodies this afternoon, since it’s so gloomy out. Does anyone have any go to recipes?! // this is my son during his newborn pics. As of yesterday he turned 2 months old. Oh my gosh where does the time go? 😭
Can we just talk about how perfect our mustard sidecars are for Autumn 😍🍂 <>
Pretty much everything we’ve done in the past few days has been followed up by “the kids would love this.” We keep joking about how we can’t not act and think like parents, even without them here with us. Here’s Jon, just being a dad, missing his babies.
Dream big little one, the world is yours! Good morning sweet friends!Remember when you were a kid and you dreamed you could be anything? A ballerina, a firefighter, an artist, a marine biologist by day/ninja crime fighter by night — anything and everything seemed possible. Now the tables have turned and you see that same free spirit in your children.
Imagine how much better a place the world would be if we all dreamed like kids again. If instead of completely growing out of our childhood, we embraced our every passion . Good news — it’s possible. And it starts by raising children who value the importance of their very own dreams. #childhoodunplugged
