god, I love when my hubby is home💥
life is so much more magical when I can experience all of our fave traditions with him. I mean, I’m riding solo and taking the kiddies regardless but it is super special when he joins us❤️... not to mention, 1,000,000x easier for me😉

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around our house! A few things about this photo: Yes it is getting increasingly difficult to wrangle these babies now that they are in the move! Yes Harley has a tiny baby head but perspective is making it look much smaller than in real life 😜 And yes as expected this was a difficult photo to get since the girls wanted nothing more than to eat all of the Christmas lights 😂😂 So much love for these festive little bebes ❤️❤️❤️
While I'm not ready to try for baby number two, I've started wearing the @avawomen bracelet over a month ago while I sleep. It tracks different health parameters like sleep, stress, heart rate, body temperature, etc. I've noticed a significant difference in my hormones after having Piper and they change constantly depending on what time of the month it is. The insight Ava provides tells me when those major changes are coming so can do my best to avoid the awful hormonal migraines I get by staying hydrated, eating well and getting plenty of rest. Whether you're trying to conceive (Ave doubles your chances of conceiving by showing your 5 most fertile days each month!), are pregnant or just want insight into your sleep, stress levels and cycle, use code: CONFETTI20 for $20 off when shopping at avawomen.com! #avawomen#avapartner#avabracelet
Morning coffee & girl talk with my teeny bestie 💗 I already love being this girls mama more than I ever thought was possible 🤗 In other news, we're hosting TWO MORE GIVEAWAYS today in my Stories so be sure to check them out! XO
A lot of people say I’m lucky because I get to see all these babies being born. Yes, I am fortunate for having that space shared with me but I have to disagree a little because to me, the best part of my birth work is being able to witness the strength of a woman giving birth. A complete stranger who trusted me to support her as she transitioned into motherhood and allowing me to be a witness to one of her most vulnerable moments.
I sat in silence while she labored. So tall. So strong. Baby engaged. Cervix fully open and ready to bring a new life forward. All she needed from me was a simple reminder to soften and drop her shoulders during her perfectly controlled breaths. This image is what I’m truly grateful for. 💛

Shortly after we got back Monday afternoon from a quick trip up North, Evie and I got so sick. I am finally feeling more like myself. Today, I'm grateful for being able to eat, and Evie saying"Teddy" for the first time (😭😭😭) and a brother and sister who love to hug each other and sleep at naptime.

This box filled with stale cereal was my saving grace this morning. I was able to get lunch together without a whiny babe clinging to my legs because of this box.
And then the baby tried stand using the box and then the box let me down. We’re talking flipped box, crying baby, and cereal everywhere. But man was it a good 20 minutes before! #reallife
Still calling this a win!
This was us, all 3 of us having a nice midday bath! Then we got out and Poncho ran at me with a plastic thing on his hand and sliced off my mole! It hurt like hell and I wanted to strangle him! He felt bad though, and was crying “mama! Cheek! Water!” And I was all “that’s blood” 😒 #Motherhood
If you’re like me- there’s no time to go to the nail salon. So I thought... why not try some press on nails. How hard can it be?!?! A few pushes here and a little filing here and wahlah.
Let me save you the trouble and the $6.99. Just don’t. Don’t do it.

Raising our vibration takes more than positive thinking and affirmations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There is nothing wrong with either of those tools but to really get the change, so many of us desire we need tangible actions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Join me tomorrow, Thursday 12/13 for kundalini yoga and meditation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The class will be full of quick-fix meditations, perfect for the holiday hustle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You will leave with tools that can change long-held patterns that have left you feeling depleted and stressed out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hope to see you. ❤️

Declan has been battling a cough for a few days, so this afternoon we went to the doctor. After playing "hold me, now put me down", "jump on the chair and slide off" and "rip all the paper", we finally saw the nurse. Then while waiting for the doctor, Declan went on a belly button search which quickly turned into a one sided game of "show mommy's boobs to anyone walking in the door". Not my favorite. One quick visit later and we are diagnosed with a double ear infection and RSV. Merry Christmas!! 🙄

Relax ☕️ I’ve had such a crap day! I woke up at 8:15am after hardly any sleep and had to rush to sort the kids and get Ethan to school, which resulted in forgetting his football kit ⚽️ I was then late for work 🙄 so it’s now time to relax with a cup of tea and Criminal Minds 📺

Meu primeiro domingo foi na Ikea, loja de móveis e decoração no estilo Tok & Stok e Etna, mas com preços super acessíveis. Bernardo já tinha comprado quase tudo mas faltava ainda a mesa e coisas menores do dia a dia.
Duas questões sobre a Ikea: quem retira os móveis do estoque somos nós mesmos e pagamos o frete para que nos entreguem em casa. Além disso, itens menores como a mesa, comodas e o rack, nós mesmos montamos seguindo o manual.
Minhas primeiras semanas foram recebendo e montando móveis por aqui.
Gostei muito da Ikea. Os móveis são simples mas de qualidade. Não vão durar eternamente mas para esse nosso recomeço estão ótimos e nos atendem bem. Há muita variedade em tudo e foi ótimo passar o domingo lá escolhendo coisas pra casa nova.
Enquanto fazíamos compras, Sofia foi passear com a vovó e a amiga Lara no Parque da Costa de Caparica. Ela amou e estamos só esperando um dia bonito pra irmos lá novamente.
Ela fechou o dia com esse pôr do sol lindo, comum por aqui, mas que sempre me impressiona!
