I’m one of those Christmas crazy people that puts their tree up in November. Are you a first of December kinda gal or a let’s make the festive season last as long as we can?

Do you remember the last time you let your inner child free? You know that carefree, curious, fearless kid you once were? We get so lost in our thoughts that most of the time we forget to live! Babies/kids in general can teach us how to be present again, just watch them looking at the world with such curiosity and an open mind. ❀

Extended family sessions are chaotic but SO much fun! Amidst the kids running from the camera, babies crying and tired parents, magic happens. I had a blast with these guys this morning, I can't wait to share more from this session! . . . . . . #childhoodunplugged #langleyphotographer #familyphotographer #photobugcommunity #lookslikefilm #postthepeople #chasinglight #thatsdarling #deepfeels #35mm #thehappynow #documentlife #letthembelittle #momswithcameras #clickinmoms #mymamahood #momsofinstagram #thehappynow #motherhoodrising #candid #candidchildhood #tendermoments

Today marks the day I have been a mother for 13 years. Holy shit, I cannot believe it. Thank you for teaching me so much about life. I was only 18 when I had you and I had no idea the roller coaster ride I was in for. You taught me how to care for someone other than myself, to love deeper than I ever had before and to sacrifice parts of my life so that you would never have to. Your attitude drives me crazy a lot of the time, but you're such a good little mate to me. You make me smile because yours is so infectious, you make me so proud even when you don't always get the recognition you deserve, and you will always have my back, my sides and my front πŸ˜‰ through thick and thin... & that is something I am forever grateful for. Your loyalty is your strength. Straight up. You are wonderful and you are capable of anything you want out of this life. Happiest of birthdays Corey James Anderson Richards, I love you more than you know. β€οΈπŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰ #subscribetobananaboy65 πŸ˜‚ Β° Β° Β° Β° Β° Β° Β° Β° Β° Β° Β° Β° Β° #thepursuitofjoyproject #habitandhome #motherhoodunplugged #honestmotherhood #mymamahood #holdthemoments #motherhoodthroughinstagram #bedeeplyrooted #our_everyday_moments #visualscollective #shootandshare #dailydoseofcolor #dearphotographer #momswithcameras #clickinmoms #oneofthebunch #livethelittlethings #momentsofmine #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #thesnapsociety #littlestoriesofmylife #myeverydaymagic #childofig #happybirthday #13thbirthday #magicofchildhood

Our date night consists of door dashing food to our front door and eating it in bed while playing Mario Party because our kid went to bed at 8pm.

[ #Ad ] With only 10 days left before Christmas, we’re finishing up all of our final gifting details πŸ’— . From wrapping presents to adding name tags, we’ve got it all covered! We’ve even included @Duracell batteries in all of our battery powered gifts because there is nothing worse than receiving a toy you can’t play with right after opening on Christmas morning!! . Not all batteries are created equally so, choose @Duracell , the battery you can trust, and pickup the size you need on Amazon.ca using the link in my bio ☝🏻 . #TrustDuracell #PeerCell
It’s the last night in our house... the babies and I fly out tomorrow morning. Im super anxious about flying by myself with them tomorrow, so say a little prayer for me!
Doesn’t get more festive than that ! A Celine Romper paired with @littlepoppyco bow 🌟

year in review : favorite places in Los Angeles to take the kids (toddler age) would be @nhmla , @californiasciencecenter , and @underwoodfamilyfarms ; their first year of life, we barely left the house, it was too overwhelming, then 18-30 months we did a lot of library and playground visits ; now they’re old enough to really engage in activities and it’s been fun exploring the city with them #mlfl54
Want to experience connection? Make eyes with a baby. THAT’S connection. Connection its deepest and most pure form. They’re looking at your eyes, they’re taking all of that in well before you open your mouth. They’re so responsive to facial expressions and cues, they really feed off that! Doesn’t take long to soak up those extra few moments really LOOKING at your little one. Do it now before they understand all the words, before they speak to you in slang, before they send emoji text messages, before they want to look at anything else! Do it while they still think you’re the best thing they’ve ever seen (can guarantee that will change 😳) 😘😘😘 πŸ“· @kikiandbully @spell @ig.motherhood #bestofmom #momlifestyle #momlifeisthebestlife #motherhoodunplugged #ohheymamas #ig_motherhood #teammotherly #mymotherhood #honestmotherhood #slowmotherhood #mymamahood #justmomlife #motherhoodthroughinstagram #mom_hub #ohheymama #holdthemoments #motherhoodintheraw #eternalmotherhood #unitedinmotherhood #motherhoodrising #joyfulmamas #bedeeplyrooted #inbeautyandchaos #our_everyday_moments #letthembelittle #motherhoodsimplified #habitandhome #nestlingly #momsunite
When we first met β€œK”, she wasn’t sure she wanted visits the first year. She was trying to protect her heart in the only way she knew how. I am so grateful that God knew better though. πŸ™ β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Here we are over two years later, celebrating a second Christmas with her family, Mateo’s family. He has a big family that stretches all over the valley. A mama, a grandma, aunts and uncles and soooo many cousins! πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘­ He will always know where he comes from. It’s big and loud and crazy, just like his family here at home. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Every adoption story looks different. Every open adoption looks different. We are grateful for our unique story- created through a miracle that will forever join our families. Because how can more love ever be a bad thing? β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € WE are the lucky ones, friends. β™₯️ (ps i LOVE to talk adoption, so if you have any questions at all, don’t be shy!)
Happy birthday Travis!🎈He chose to celebrate by playing with us at the arcade and bowling, because he’s happiest when we’re all having fun together.β™₯️ You are the most incredible Daddy and love of my life, we all wish you the best birthday ever and a year of all the love, joy, happiness, and snuggles we can tackle you with! 35 looks good on you babe!😘

Last one from my red wall holiday series 🌲 . You know those moments when you look at your kids and it just hits you how big they are getting? That was me today with my big girls, but especially my Ryan Elizabeth. She is really coming into her own. Thoughtful, considerate, kind, altruistic, helpful. And I’m just so proud. So so proud.
Rainy days means playing in the mud! πŸ™Œ

I was there in that place no one likes to be. I don't know if youve seen any of my story, but I'd come home crying every night after work when I'd go to get out of my work clothes. Hated my body. Hated my self. hadn't even had a baby at that point. But then I walked through a long process, of completely healing my mindset with myself, with food, and (later) my postpartum body. I began a nutriton program/group that CHANGED me completely. Needless to say I'm 2 months postpartum with my 2nd baby and lost 33 lbs. no diets. no calorie counting. very little exercise (though I am picking that back up) I love taking pictures now. I feel like a completely different person than I was. I'm running an accountability group for anyone who'd like to do it with me as well starting in Jan. GAME CHANGER, along with my exercise one for those who need that. But just felt like I needed to share this part of my story for anyone new here or for anyone who feels hopeless. It is possible to feel like yourself again, to feel like you can thrive again. Soooo soooo possible.
My sweet babies!! Headed out for my husbands family holiday dinner!! Wearing my new sweater from @Target which is super on sale right now!! Go grab one I’m loving the pink!!

We got into a little road rage dispute today with a legit psychopath and I knew it was bad when David yelled β€œYOU WANNA PULL OVER??” at the guy so I was like holy sh*t and called 911 and my anxiety has been through the roof all day since. Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is for my husband to not be arrested for assault or homicide. 😰 But then we went to Walmart and I bought these reindeer headbands and I feel better. 🦌 How was your day??? #avalondonburton
Sweet Mia in our β€˜Scarlet’ bonnet in Sedum, our most popular style and color this season! Definitely one of my favorites, too ✨
β€œTo be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” Ralph Waldo Emerson . Everyday these girls teach me what it means to do what makes you happy, see life as a gift, and not give a πŸ’© about what anybody else thinks. I thought it was up to me as their mother to teach them what life is all about, when in all actuality, THEY are teaching ME. ❀️

so, this is love πŸ’• ⁣ and, hard work. ⁣ ⁣ i wish more people talked about how hard it is when baby gets here. being pregnant was all over the place but this is an all new adjustment. my mom group decided to discuss it this week. basically, we wished other first-time moms gave us the bad along with the good. ⁣ ⁣ for me: no sleep, no time for anything, recovering body, crying from cannon (and me once or twice). i decided to talk about it on my blog and finally hit publish on it. ⁣ this cute face makes this journey of love, exhaustion, learning moments, and whirlwind of emotions worth it. ya girl will need a month of relaxation when he hits five years old. also, props to all the parents out there. this is a 24/7 career. // #hellobrittnee #cannonalexzander #watchingcannongrow ⁣⁣ .⁣⁣⁣ .⁣⁣⁣ .⁣⁣⁣ .⁣⁣⁣ .⁣⁣⁣ #motherhoodsimplified Β #postthepeople Β #livethelittlethings #documentyourdays Β #motherhoodrising #feelthefeels Β #momswithcameras Β #ig_motherhood #naturallyperfectkids #beautifully_made_babies #joyfulmommas #newmom #parenthoodunlocked #momsquad #uniteinmotherhood #bourgiebabies #frobabies #sharemymotherhood #thingsiwanttoremember #mymamahood #ourtinymoments #mamastakenote
not quite big enough daddy, nice try. 🧑
The new year is only a few days away, with Christmas around the corner. Which for so many people means eating and drinking way too much and "detoxing" in the new year. But why wait for yourself to feel worse before swearing to change things for the better? By including these whole food supplements in my life every day I not only crave healthier food but I also feel better when I do indulge. Because life is too short to be restrictive! Comment below with your fav emoji how you want to feel in the new year?? πŸ™Œ
#brbcrying because our little love is ten months old today! I’m in disbelief that she has entered the double digits in her monthly milestones 😭 just look at how big she’s getting! Vy just learned how to play peek-a-boo and will be getting her four front teeth for Christmas πŸ˜† We love you so much baby girl! πŸ’•
This girlie is a professional tree decorator at this point. She’s decorated at least three this year and while half the ornaments may end up on four branches, she’s wonderfully precise and adorably particular. We survived our flight to the states and the two babies were such fantastic travellers. So grateful for a smooth trip and sweet people around us on the planes. Definitely eased my mind and helped us all relax and enjoy our flight! #christmastree #throughtheeyesofachild #christmastimeishere #toddlersofinstagram #toddlerfashion #toddlerlife #toddler #childhoodunplugged #letthembelittle #honestmotherhood #mytinymoments #classicmotherhood #uniteinmotherhood #our_everyday_moments #candidchildhood #littlepiecesofchildhood #treasuringlittlememories #bestofmom #worldoflittles #ig_motherhood #mymamahood #motherhoodthroughig #thatsdarling #motherhoodsimplified #toddlermom #childhoodmemories #magicofchildhood #christmas #vsco #vscocam

Anyone else despise putting together gingerbread houses?My son wants one every year, and I reluctantly buy one only to end up putting most of it together myself. And this year we had an epic fail! β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Normally we buy the large set, but this year we bought mini houses that didn't come with the plastic piece to build the house on. Well, the houses wouldn't stay together because that plastic piece is the only thing that keeps everything positioned correctly! You had to let all the sides dry (overnight!) before adding the roof or it completely fell apart. I was fit to be tied! My son didn't want to wait that long so he ended up decorating pieces with frosting and just eating them. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Next year I figure it would be easier just to make gingerbread men and let him decorate them with a tube of frosting from the store. Or better yet, we could buy Moravian spice cookies and he could decorate those with a tube of frosting. Sounds like a much better option to me! β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
