Today is all about you kiddo ✨ We are off to Disney on Ice, Pops is going to her nannies so Ava gets us all to herself, I can’t wait!
Between these two photographers there was a big episode of crying, drama and stress. We are happy that it is done finally.
Like everything since his birth, mundan ceremony has also taught me a lot more things.
The Mundan, is the eighth of the sixteen Hindu saṃskāras, in which a child receives their first haircut. According to the Grhya Sutras, this samskara should take place at the end of first year or before the expiry of the third year.
Don't forget to make sure- 💇♂Ensure that the barber's equipment and tools are sterilised, especially if you are taking your baby to a temple, or a salon. It is best to buy a new pair of scissors and a razor for the mundan.
💇♂Give your baby a bath right after the shaving ceremony. Make sure you wash off any hair trapped between the folds of the skin. Use tap water or lukewarm water, depending on the season and weather conditions. 💇♂Apply some antiseptic cream to heal any cuts on your baby's head. Some mums also apply a paste of turmeric mixed with sandalwood, which is believed to have antiseptic properties. Whatever, you choose to apply, gently dab it on your baby's head and make sure your baby doesn't ingest it.
No matter how traditional it has to be but don't forget to make sure the hygiene and cleanliness during whole process.

we're ready to party, is it Halloween yet!?
Trying to find the perfect pumpkin for Dakota’s first Halloween was such a daunting task! So, we found two instead and checked off all of our criteria. A cute little Dakota sized one, full of character, just like her! And the perfect pumpkin for mom and dad to carve! 🎃
Ohhh my little love bug, my summer girl encountering the cold. 🌬 #dayinthelife
Pumpkin picking with our two little loves.
Seriously....😍😍😍😍 So.much.cuteness. I love how easy this romper is to accessorize!! #babymodel
This pretty little gallery went out last night. It was so nice to catch up with this rad trio again a couple of weeks back. We did a few shots at home and then headed over to the park, (which was essentially their backyard 😻) for a little bit of time in the late light. I think this was the first hot day for Spring this year - Gimme all those delicious Summer vibes! 💘
She is the sunshine on a rainy day ☀️
Her exact words “I’m like a king!” 😂
As most of you have noticed in my stories today... I messed up. Totally had a bad attitude... I'll repeat a bit of what I already said in stories but, here's what happened:
I had a rough day. So, I said to my daughter ( the sweet girl in this photo )
"Emilia, I'm so sorry for my bad attitude, do you forgive me?"
& she said, "of course I do! We should always forgive eachother & remember, God forgives you to, because He never lets go of His loves!"
Gah - I pray she keeps holding on to her First Love & never lets the world blind her to it or tempt her away from it. This sweet innocence is exactly why I said what I did in my post yesterday about my goals in life...
So yeah, I failed today. I own it & I'm glad all that talk about forgiveness last month finally paid off ( if you've been following you've noticed a lot of talk about it ).
We are human. We are painfully flawed. We will make mistakes...& the questions I keep asking myself are:
Am I modeling how to get back up from said mistakes? Am I showing that our mistakes/sin/selfishness is inevitable and that is exactly why we need to remain ( abide ) in Christ? Am I living that?.... or am I living for some perfectionist / unrealistic picture of what I think a mom should be and end up frustrated when it isn't met ... Yeaaah where is the grace in that? You'll hear me ( or see? ) me say this a lot ... Pride . is . a . funny . thing ... it doesn't always pop up the way we anticipate. :| Ouch. I had to check myself today - that is not the woman I want to or was called to be
I had it on my heart to share with you guys - because - I want my friends to know... whether you're a mom, dad, aunt, uncle, grandparent, mentor, etc. if you fall down... get up... say sorry... own it and move forward trying harder next time not to fall into the same trap. Never stop getting up. I learned today that it is in those moments of real life, truth, vulnerability - our kids learn the most about how to live life and grow to be good humans.
Flannel pants, furry hood, background pumpkins—Fall game on point ☑️ #dayinthelife
She’s been up since 4:45am, only slept 10 min all day, had lunch 2 hours later than normal, but the magic of Disney is keeping this kid smiling all day. Dress by @sewmuchcooler.
Basking in the fact that her hair is finally just barely long enough for a clippie. 😍 ...also, this onesie describes our current life while she’s in a growth spurt again. “Up all night? GOOD.”
“Your love is devoted like a ring of solid gold
Like a vow that is tested like a covenant of old
And Your love is enduring through the winter rain
And beyond the horizon with mercy for today
Faithful You have been and faithful you will be.” ✨
The faithfulness of God is written ALL over your life, Bre! These are the moments we have prayed for. You are beautiful, worthy, and so incredibly loved. ✨
Time for a nanny nap 💤🍼 hope you have wonderful weekend 🎉
We were all packed up and ready to go to the pumpkin patch and then our power went out, it started SNOWING and winds were blowing 20-30mph- oh Wisconsin 🤣🤦🏻♀️ See my cute bag though?! That’s a @lilyjadeco
yjadeco diaper bag...YUP! I got tons of questions on it when some of you spotted in my stories the other day. This one is the Madeline and my favorite way to wear is the backpack way-whoever thought “let’s make diaper bags backpacks” is a genius 🤷🏻♀️. Also this bag has a removable/washable organizer/insert - um yes please 🙌🏻 - I’ll show you guys in stories if you want! And the best thing is, @lilyjade

'Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before'. I'm going to put these words up on my wall, it's something I've been struggling with a lot lately. I've heard about the jump from 1-2 kids and how challenging it can be, but you never fully understand until you're right in the thick of it. Ezzy is hitting that 4 month sleep regression period, and Hazel is a busy 2 year with so many emotions. And me? I'm just trying to survive day to day - I am savouring the good days (they do happen!) because when the bad days come, the weight of it all sometimes seems too much for me. Like how I sat in the Costco parking lot for half an hour before going in, because I needed to go to the bathroom, and lugging both of them in the stall with me was an overwhelming thought. But one thing I've learned in my 2 years of motherhood, is that we are FAR more capable than we are think. I don't give myself enough credit. Motherhood is the hardest thing I've ever done, but I'm doing it! And I think I'm doing okay at it too (I did make it into Costco, btw). All this to say - to you mothers feeling the weight of the world today - this won't break you, in fact, it's quite the opposite. It's making you stronger than ever before 💪
We went to the pumpkin patch today 🤗 ALSO Liam wore the little boat shoes that we used for our pregnancy announcement. We vlogged the whole thing. New video is coming soon. ❤️ Link to my YouTube channel is in my bio!
Getting ready for our vacation tomorrow aka just looking through old pictures. I pack well under pressure anyways 😜
When 'mom + dad' are just 'us' for a minute🍎🍃 till miss jellyfish catches wind and wedges her little needle toes through to be in the middle. The funniest is when she gives me that 'you stole my man' look🤨😑🤣 #kidsman #toddlerhood #misslillianblaire #applepicking
