kiwiikakes All those months I carried him in my womb I knew he'd be beautiful. I knew I'd love him more than anything. But I never REALLY knew how true both of those sentences would be for me. He's the most perfect thing I've ever seen. The way his hair turns golden in the light, the way he bats his long sweet eye lashes at me, the beautiful sound of his laughter.. sometimes it swells my throat and tightens my heart just thinking about every little bit of him. #maddoxzander #motherhoodrising 3d

kiwiikakes Grainy or not, life just doesn't get better than seeing this beautiful smile. I'm finding that the older he gets, the less time I'm spending in this space. He's so fun and playful, it's hard to want to do anything else but laugh and scream silly screams with him all day. Don't get me wrong, we still have our moments.. like our 5am wake up cry for 30mins this morning that was fixed with a single burp but really just mostly fun times these days and two severely sharp teeth that like to nibble on fingers. #sixmonths 2w

kiwiikakes His first basket!! I know Easter is about so much more (Jesus!) than an Easter basket and coloring eggs but this is a sweet tradition my mom has done for us since I was little and I'm excited that I get to do this for Maddox now. #firsteaster 1mon

kiwiikakes Haven't colored my hair since July; the goal is to wait a year. I've never went this long without some sort of coloring on a side note - I really miss having "girl's night". Any of you mamas out there get me? The kind where we have yummy drinks and belly laughs and honest conversations about our lives that social media doesn't depict.. just really missing that sort of sisterhood that seems to have gotten lost under the rug (with a few other things) since starting my family. #motherhoodrising 1mon

kiwiikakes All of his mile stones are coming up faster and faster.. my biggest fear is that I won't remember all the small things like his side smirk or the way he rubs my shirts while he's nursing. Can't we just linger in these moments forever? Expand time in slow-mo? I love you Maddox Zander #everybitofyou 1mon

kiwiikakes Date night last night was paired with the most refreshing grapefruit beer that was the dreamiest shade of pink and a blue-eyed hunk across the table #hubbahubba 1mon

kiwiikakes The most attractive part about my husband is the way he fathers our son ️ gosh they melt my heart. This is how we spend most of our mornings; just the three of us playing in bed. #fatherandson #marriedup 2mon

kiwiikakes His new five month old thing.. grabbing his feet and eating them, always. Oh and cutting his first tooth and eating blended up carrots #ilovebeingamom #heartbreakcity we still can't get him to sleep on his own yet. I really don't mind him being in bed with us but it'd be nice to not have a dead arm half way through the night (lol) any suggestions on how to get him down on his own mamas? 2mon
  •   kiwiikakes @brea.fisher lol we discovered he liked it after he stayed asleep while changing him on it. So funny! I'll have to try getting him down like that. - You would think he'd like those bottle since they're soft silicone. I would try going up a size in the nipple. Maybe the milk flow isn't fast enough for him and he doesn't want to have to work that hard for it? Maddox has used the Avent bottles with a size 1 nipple when I've had to pump since he was about three weeks old. He's never had a problem going back and forth between the two but definitely prefers to nurse directly. I know Maddox had a hard time with pacifiers at first and we went through several until we found one he would take so it could possibly be the same with Quincy and the bottle. 2mon
  •   jades_hot_mama He looks so squishy lol ..I want to squeeze him @kiwiikakes 2mon
  •   kiwiikakes @jades_hot_mama he is so squishy! lol he's a ham 2mon

kiwiikakes Fact: my husband has his degree in culinary arts and does pretty much all the cooking in our household. Except the bacon, I do the bacon this morning he whipped us up blueberry pancakes from scratch as our cheat meal breakfast. #mmm #blueberrypancakes 2mon

kiwiikakes You know that person you grew up fighting with like a sibling and you drove each other nuts but still always stayed at each other's house? And then you got a little older and realized that person is your best friend and you turn to them for everything and they're usually the first person to know any of your secrets? She's my person and we got to shower her today in anticipation for baby boy to be here! I can't wait for the boys to grow up together like we did. #cousins 2mon
  •   chasing.wildflower Awe I love you so much! Stop making me emotional. lol I can't wait for our boys to grow up together just like we did. I'm so blessed to have through everything and I hope they grow up to feel the same. 2mon
  •   kiwiikakes @chasing.wildflower I hope so too! I love you!! 2mon

kiwiikakes He just makes me so happy, you know? Motherhood definitely has it's challenging aspects (I.e. postpartum hair loss so you give yourself baby bangs to hide it.. or the more serious things like baby has been up since 2am and I'm exhausted) but I never knew how much joy Maddox would bring us. He wakes up in the morning, even at 2am, with these sweet flirty eyes and these tiny laughs and I just can't help but kiss him about 200 times. #mysweetboy 2mon
  •   kiwiikakes @slukens7 we do!! I don't have facebook but my mom was showing me all the pictures Spencer just had done is he crawling yet? 2mon

kiwiikakes Really been enjoying this California weather lately also, helped out at the coffee shop for a quick hour today and totally miss making coffee! I need a Nespresso. Plus also.. I worked along side my most favorite friend @rachelspecktacular whom was also just helping out there for the day and I'm totally convinced is my soul sister. Funny enough, the coffee shop is the same place we met pre- babies and marriage lol such a sweet day so far. 2mon

kiwiikakes Yesterday was this handsome guys birthday! Seriously, I am so proud to call him my husband. I could go down the list of all the things he does for us but the biggest thing this year is that he provides for me and Maddox. So much so that I didn't have to go back to work after we had the baby which was huge for us. Gosh I adore this man and the way he loves our son! I hope this year brings so much joy for him #youaremyrock #happybirthday #marriedup 2mon

kiwiikakes I pray I never forget these moments of sweet tender sleep where he still seems so teeny tiny. These moments where I sit and stare at his long beautiful eyelashes and continuously breathe in his sweet milky breath and try to sneak in the softest kisses on his lips even though I know it might wake him and I'll be kicking myself in the butt for it lol #MaddoxZander 3mon
  •   steph__pollock 🏼🏼 so beautiful. I do the same thing with kisses and cross my fingers she doesn't wake! 3mon
  •   kiwiikakes @steph__pollock it's just too irresistible when they're little mouths are open like that and their chubby cheeks hanging 3mon

kiwiikakes At least once a week we tell each other not 'I love you' but, "I'm in love with you" so how fitting is it that today is a day for lovers wish this handsome guy wasn't working all day today but we don't need fancy dinners or chocolates to know it's the real deal (although wouldn't that be nice ) #happyvalentinesday all you lovers out there! 3mon
