No Spend January is officially NO FUN.
On a side note, I’m pumping under this sweatshirt! Part of the reason I despise pumping so much are all the tubes. @willowpump let’s me move around (or lay down let’s be honest) without getting so tangled!! #willowpump
She started dance today. She’s a natural (of course) and all of her girly princess dreams came true ✨

Bath ✔️ Robes ✔️ Story time ✔️ Snug 😀 🐻 The wind down before bedtime is my favourite. Best little cuddle buddies 👬💙

My friend shared this on Facebook today and I laughed until I cried as I picked up my third child who I will now refer to as my “Back Rub” kid.

This month’s portrait says it all! This little dude is 11 months old and we’re all recovering from the mother of all funks. (Thus explaining why this portrait is so damn late 😷) We had our first scary ER visit last month, and the day after Christmas no less! He’s fine, but a soaring fever we couldn’t get under control, a wet cough and rapid breathing scared the daylights out of us. A few X-rays and some meds took care of it, now we’re all just trying to get back into our normal routines after passing whatever that was around a bit and having to jump on the co-sleeping train for a few weeks. We had an EXCELLENT Christmas with Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle Scot in Indianapolis and this guy aced his first big road trip thanks to lots of puffs and Hotel Transylvania on repeat on the iPad. Plus, he’s added five new states to his visited list. Santa brought him a walker and he’s no longer interested in staying still, which is just 🙄 for Mommy and Daddy and we got the notice this week that our little baby will be transitioning to the toddler room in March. THE TODDLER ROOM. In a few short weeks we won’t have an infant anymore! OH MY GOD how time flies! If you need me, I’ll be sobbing in the corner looking through photos of our labor. Happy 11 months, my sweet boy. You’ll ALWAYS be my baby! #11months
Does anyone else believe kids have this amazing sense of knowing when you need something? Tonight Tré gave me one of his stuffed animals to sleep with😍Although he didn’t really give a reason why, I believe he knew Mommy needed some support. Anyone with a family member that works as a public servant knows the flexibility required as a family. There are often long days, missed dinners, schedule changes, nights of sleeping alone, missed kisses goodnight, and so, so much more. Today we get to go through one of those “changes”. Our daily routine has changed, of course not by choice, and we try our best to make them work. We do extra FaceTime calls at bedtime, and wake up early to give kisses before work. Our communities would not function without their tireless dedication, and I hope each one of them knows their worth as they feel down about missing holidays, and bedtime stories, and those few quiet moments to exist as a married couple without 43,652 questions about garbage trucks🤷🏼♀️It is never easy, nor does it ever seem fair, but I am so grateful for all the small efforts that help get us through the tough nights without (fill in be blank). I love you😘and I hope you know how missed you are. ❤️Z
It started with Jax undoing an entire roll of drawing paper, and ended up with this! Life size coloring pages 🦕🦖 and dino’s, of course! It’s been a couple days and they are still hard at work coloring, like literally right now I can hear scribbling 🤣 check out the blog to see its current “after” photo

mamah muda anak dua #tsaaahelah 💃
dulu klo foto trus diposting gak pernah PD, gak tau kenapa pas punya bayi ngerasa kucel ngerasa dekil walaupun aslinya emang udah butek 😅, ditambah setiap hari “ngutek” bae dirumah, dapur sumur kasur ituuuuh bae saban ari, maklum saya mah IRT
jangan harap ada moment foto cakep pas liburan, atau makan nikmat tanpa diganggu anak pas direstoran, yang ada hanyalah DRAMA alias kaki pegel badan ngerentek klo abis hangout bawa anak bayik usia dibawah 2 tahun, KLO DIRUMAH PENGEN JALAN JALAN, DI TKP buru buru pengen pulang wkwkwkwkw. anak diajak ngeluh capek, ditinggal sama neneknya difikirin, yaah begitulah EMAK EMAK
gw klo diajak hangout sama keluarga berasa kaya suster karna kecil sendiri dan dorong2 bayi dengan segala perabotannya, klo diajak jalan sama temen berasa paling demek sendiri karna boro2 ngalis 2 jam, kelar ngurusin anak bapaknya udah keringetan sampe salin baju dulu klo mau berangkat jadi yawdahlah yaaa emak mah dandan seadanya, klo kata mas Lukman Syah dandan cakep cakep mau diliatin siapa sich? gausah lah cakep2 biasa aja, iyaaa ALIS gw dengdek sebelah juga lu mah cuek aja bukan dikasih tau 😒😒 #sukasebel
setelah gw perhatikan semua ada masanya, buat para mamah muda yang anaknya masih piyik merasa gak PD klo kemana mana, merasa REPOT sendiri, merasa gagal berlibur. tenaaaaang.. sabaaaar... kalian gak sendiri!!
SEMUA ADA MASANYA.. klo cuma GW yang merasakan hal itu, berarti kalian semua cakep botoh inten MANJAAAAAAH 💃
alhamdulillah sekarang AGAK KENDORAN DIKIT urat uratnnya, lebih ringan bebannya sikaka udah bisa diajak kompromi udah bisa sedikit ngerti buat bantu jaga adek klo ibunya lagi ribed, dan pak suami juga udah bisa kontrol sabar nya ❤️
💙💙The men in my life. And what I wish for my son....to live a long, happy and healthy life free from the expectations of always having to be strong. Show your heart, little man!!
Who else is raising a son and wants them to feel ok with feeling!? ✋✋
“Children are great imitators, so give them something great to imitate” 🤙
Ever lost your cool with your kid , and wanted to make them feel so guilty for what they’ve done ? Then realized, hey, he’s not even 2 yet, And felt all that guilt you were moments ago hoping they might feel, pour down on you? 😢
Yeah I’ve been there, and I still go there time to time. But despite how hard it may be, I make sure to apologize to him and forgive myself for my imperfections. 😬
At the end of the day I want him to know that it’s ok to get mad and make mistakes, and it’s also ok to say sorry. We are all human. ✌️ .
Today this little one bit me so hard, I yelped and was so mad 😡, he looked at me with those innocent eyes and said in his 19 month old jabber Sowwy and gave me the biggest hug. Then pulled away for an i wov ou. To come back with another hug 🤗 . I asked was that an accident, and he said yea and we hugged some more and went on about our day. .
It was seriously an amazing moment for me on my parenting journey. So real. So forgiving. So accepting. So trusting. I have never been so proud of myself. I know this little monkey 🐒 picks up on everything I do, and today he showed me that I am doing what I set out to 😍.
Then we went outside and rode scooters 🛴:) life is good ❤️

Несколько лет назад я перестала считать года, месяцы, дни и часы, мне надоело обнадеживаться, ждать надоело ещё сильнее. Вроде думаешь «вот-вот, ну давай же, Время, быстрее!», а потом как бы невзначай удивляешься, какого черта всё так быстро ушло за горизонт воспоминаний.
Вот именно поэтому надо «здесь и сейчас». Ценить каждый момент, каждый случай, каждое слово, мысль.
Признаюсь, в тяжелых моментах я только и думаю, как бы быстрее ускорить день, чтобы всё растворилось в следующем. А за этим не видно радостей; все дни, как один. А ведь однажды ребёнок впервые улыбнулся и взял погремушку, муж прошептал на ухо что-то очень важное и сокровенное, мама призналась в чём-то очень значимом, подруга поделилась секретом, друг показал себя другом. Не запоминается, уходит; абсолютно всё это сливается воедино и превращается в монотонную серость, без разделения на «хорошо» и «плохо».
Именно поэтому даю себе установку запечатлеть глазами всё от и до, малейшие детали, мимику и движения, любые признания, любую думу. Потому что всего этого не повторить, на «репит» не поставить.
Один шанс увидеть и запомнить, а не пропустить мимо.
Just a tip:Never be embarrassed to struggle.There is absolutely no shame in getting where you want to be.Brokenness can turn into beauty💜
🌺 This day was when I had to retake this photo so many times. Took me awhile to realize Emily kept turning her head right before the shot on purpose 😆 So at this point I was over photos ; my face says it all. 🌺
