  •   ashleegadd @leebrownphotos He totally does. His new thing is asking for daddy when I'm holding him and asking for me when Brett holds him. He gets passed back and forth and bedtime takes an extra 10 minutes. Little manipulator that one 1w
  •   littlecraigclan This is a really sweet capture! 1w
  •   backroadbaby I'm getting good at it too. The worst is when their tiny little hand grabs the mascara wand 1w

ashleegadd Not even a tiny bit scared, this one. 2w
  •   jjac02 There is an awesome wave-less kiddie beach right outside of Lahaina. Our kids LOVED it& keep talking about it, even a full year later. My parents are @ the Whaler on Kaanapali right now. And although sort of creepy, they BBQ there almost every night (the place closest to the Hula Grill). If you guys are staying near there & happen to see a crowd of people sitting around with tablecloths strapped to picnics tables & a WHOLELOTTAWINE, ask them for directions to the kid beach. It will be worth your trip!! (They also might steal your kids, so be warned) 2w
  •   ashleegadd @jjac02 Ha! We are doing family photos tomorrow morning and I think that's the beach we are going to! (Wholelottawine LOL). 2w
  •   leebrownphotos None of these pics show you working on your computer and having zero fun. For the record. GOOD LUCK TOMORROW! Can't wait to see the beautiful pics. 2w

  •   donab I totally did not believe that 🏻about the baby powder until I tried it and I wouldn't put it on my kid for any other reason, but for sand removal it is some kind of magic. 2w

ashleegadd One hour to get ready for the beach, one hour to clean up from the beach, one hour at the actual beach. And so it goes. Worth it for this moment. 2w

ashleegadd Four years ago today, I heard a baby cry and it was the greatest sound these ears have ever heard. Everett Hudson Gadd was placed on my chest, we both cried our eyes out, and I would never be the same. Motherhood has ruined me and made me whole; it has broken my heart and healed it ten times over. Everett, to know you is to love you. Ask anyone. You light up every room you walk into, you say hi to everyone you meet, and you smile all day long. I have never met anyone as happy as you, your joy is contagious and undoubtedly your greatest gift. You are bright and generous and thoughtful, and I love watching you grow into the sweet boy that God made you to be. It's only been four years, but I can barely remember a life before you existed. Every day I wake up grateful to be your mom. Happy 4th birthday, my sweet boy! 3w

ashleegadd Bounce house, cheeseburgers, cupcakes, and good friends. We do simple birthdays around here, but they're always a hit. I can't believe my boy will be FOUR tomorrow! 3w

ashleegadd "They'll be best friends," everyone said. "Just wait and see," they told me. So I waited, and waited, and waited some more. And sure enough, 18 months later, I woke up one day and heard giggles from morning till night. I heard them playing tag, and hide-and-seek. I heard them zooming cars and roaring like dinosaurs and building block towers together. When Everett comes home from preschool, he drops his backpack on the floor and rushes to hug his brother. "I missed you, Carson!" It's not perfect of course. They struggle to share sometimes, as all kids do. But we're turning a corner. And I really love what's on the other side. 3w
  •   ashleegadd @jenrussum Just a few months ago, things were different. It happened out of nowhere. There's light at the end of the tunnel! 3w
  •   mothermanifesto Thank ya momma!! @ashleegadd 3w
  •   thecatharticblend My kiddos are right on the cusp of this, too. It's so fun to watch (and, to experience the moments where they go off and play by themselves and it's quite for a whole 5 consecutive minutes...hallelujah!) 3w
  •   ashleegadd @thecatharticblend 5 minutes = 1 hour in mom world 3w

ashleegadd I haven't been a great mom this week. Sometimes it feels like I've got this work/life/motherhood thing down and other times it feels like I'm being buried alive. But Fridays are for us. Friday mornings are slow and lazy and it's the one day of the week that I give myself permission not to work during nap time. Fridays are my reset. The day I take a breath. The day I forgive myself and ask my kids to forgive me too. Fridays are for fresh air, and strawberry stains, and adventures, and sunshine. And leftover pizza for lunch. Inhale. Exhale. Gratitude. 4w
