luvandkiwi So maybe mommy should brush her teeth? (I haven't seen a mirror in days... Even tomboys have their looking a hot mess thresholds... Luckily I have no shame #AllForDocumenting) 1d

luvandkiwi Life's become this grand blur... Filled with glimpses of the most beautiful eyes I've ever seen, tickling of toes to stir her to keep feeding, diaper changes, short eye rests and tears of joy/fatigue/gratitude/awe. It's like I opened this door into this new world and nothing is the same. I live and breath this kid. It's all I know so forgive me for the next hundred or so pictures I share. I stepped into Dorothy's technicolor Oz, the Pink Floyd "Money" song begun and I accepted my new new and started c walking with the munchkins. Life will never be the same. 3d

  •   mrs_shugar I read somewhere that motherhood changes you at the cellular level. you will never be the same and there are many positives and some negatives to that. It's incredible the love isn't it? All our lives we will now do whatever it takes just to see them smile. the love is a drug and it's boundless. 3d

luvandkiwi Call me bad but could this be Zoey's spirit animal? I saw this fish at the doctor's office and became hypnotized... I floated towards the thing and whispered, "you have my daughter's night eyes... The ones that let me know I shouldn't expect sleep for many, many hours" The Fourth Trimester is no damn joke. I would trade and hustle sleep like a prison inmate would cigarettes. #BabiesAreTheNewBlack 5d
  •   mrs_shugar Sleep deprivation is no joke. Just wait until it lasts for months or even years. It plays tricks on your sanity. But, we all get through it. Actually we all get used to little sleep. It's part of the hazing our babies do and we love them for it no matter what! Best of luck, mommy friend! 5d
  •   luvandkiwi @mrs_shugar sigh lol the dim light at the end of a long, long tunnel 5d
  •   tarapainter Truth. 4d
  •   littlenugget_bignugget Hahahaha!! I'm excited to follow your journey through motherhood. I expect many laughs. 3d
  •   luvandkiwi @littlenugget_bignugget laughter is the best medicine when dealing with a newborn 3d
  •   littlenugget_bignugget Absolutely! Especially when you laugh with those who know e x a c t l y what your talking about! 3d
  •   mrs_shugar @luvandkiwi you've got this, mommy friend. and remember you have a whole tribe of mommies who have been there and can offer a shoulder to cry on. We members of the zombies club stick together! 3d
  •   luvandkiwi @mrs_shugar zombies club lol... Yes. 3:34 am... Yep 3d

luvandkiwi Baby bouquets... Meals... Back rubs... Texts from mamas... Breast feeding coaches... An amazing doula and encouragement that I in fact will be OK and will not suck balls at this thing called motherhood. I cry a lot ya'll. A LOT. Niagara Falls people. 1w
  •   michaelleannadms Did you have the baby?!! Congratulations, girl!!! You will be great! And trust me you will make mistakes ( I still do!) but it's just part of figuring it all out!! Crying is natural, just don't let it take over. You can do this bc you are a Momma Warrior now!! Motherhood is a battle but thankfully, it's one of the few where the rewards far out way the struggle! Just remember to take care of yourself which I know can be hard- eat Lots of healthy fats rich in omegas. Your brain really needs those right now to cope and function properly on top of being able to feed another little human. 7d
  •   fitbottomedmama Crazy hormones and sleep deprivation equal tears. Trust yourself. 7d
  •   soniaperla You're doing great ! Take care of yourself. Sleep when the baby is sleeping. Rest Rest Rest! 7d
  •   fitbottomedgirl One moment at a time ... 😀 you're doing great! 6d
  •   luvandkiwi @michaelleannadms I did and thank you for that 6d
  •   michaelleannadms Ugh, Tish, I am so sorry. it was one of those days here at the Adams household and I think I was trying to convince myself more than anything. (My brain is in desperate need of a recharge.) I hope you are getting some rest and taking deep whiffs of sweet baby breath whenever the fancy strikes. 6d
  •   tarapainter Love you girlfriend, you got this!!! it's dang hard stuff, so yeah, OK to cry!!! 4d

Happy "BIRTH" day to our Zoey Fanshen Arana. She's the best little human being in the world. Tish @luvandkiwi was amazing and it was the wildest thing I've ever witnessed. She has mom and dad's big feet and hands. God is sooooo good to us!!! She weighed in at 7lbs 5oz. and 21in. At 1:16pm. Tish is well and sippin on juice. #ziggystardust2015 #whatAZiggyLooksLike #taxBaby 2w

luvandkiwi Being the oldest in a sibling crew of three meant I always got to bring a bud along on vacations. @fitbottomedgirl was my brilliant partner in crime who all three of us gals now think of as sister #4... Sister friends and sister sisters rock. Ziggy's got some cool aunties. Not our finest group shot but it was the last time we were all together so closed eyes be damned. At least we're not screaming at each other while Jen asks us why we can't just keep our hands to ourselves... #nationalsiblingday #weTerrorizedeachOtherGrowingUp #JenWasThankfulSheWasAnOnlyChild 2w

luvandkiwi I've been obsessed with this breakfast. 1/2 cup almond milk, frozen mango and one banana blended. Grab your favorite granola (I look for ones that pack flax and superfood goodies) and berries and mix it all together. Yum in the tum. 3w

luvandkiwi Cramps and pre-labor pains are easily forgotten when you find out the wonderful @ohjoy sent you a sweet something. I've asked Ziggy if she's jealous that Joy's newest baby is in her toy... We have incentive now kid! Good ole fashion jealousy... Ways to create joy... Whatever gets you out and floating your boat. Thank you Team OhJoy for the wonderful push present #OhJoyBook #lookWhatTheStorkBrought 3w

luvandkiwi The day has come... I was a cocky little effer thinking because I carried so small for so long I'd avoid foot growth, but it's happened. I found THE perfect shoe and I have to return them because size ELEVEN is as high as they run. Mmm hmmm, ya read that right. My how the arches have fallen... Can't a knocked up tomboy catch a break?! And why can't Ash make these damn things for men too?! I actually mourned that little gold zipper. #tomboychic #ashShoes #PregnantProblems #IRockMyHusbandsClothes 3w

luvandkiwi Mark cooked up THE best basil shrimp pasta + homeboy scooped me up a vegan coconut almond milk horchata and vanilla bread pudding from Creme Caramel LA. I know putting his loveliness on blast makes him more desirable to single women who don't mind the challenge of a married man... To those women I say yeah he's awesome and stuff but he makes babies with Herculean fetus strength. The kind of strength that makes you watch Bella from Breaking Dawn's pregnancy of doom and nod your head yes in solidarity. #TheresACatchBoo #MeAndMyBabyThrowSalt 4w

  •   littlenugget_bignugget One more thing to add on the list. I love sushi!!! 4w
  •   fitbottomedgirl I still haven't had any yet. Need to remedy that! Maybe I'll wait for you and we'll have a virtual sushi date. 4w
  •   luvandkiwi @littlenugget_bignugget Favorite in LA?! 4w
  •   luvandkiwi @fitbottomedgirl I dig this idea! I'm serious about chowing down after she pops out 4w
  •   fitbottomedgirl @luvandkiwi for sure!!! 4w
  •   littlenugget_bignugget Mmm. We really liked Little Sisters in the same plaza as Coco's in Tarzana, but they closed down because business was slow. I know that they are related to the owners of Little Brothers in Woodland Hills, but we haven't tried them yet. We also really like So Sushi on Ventura in between Tampa and Corbin. These spots are pricey but WELL WORTH IT. 4w

luvandkiwi This is a lie. This peaceful sign of wedding party life leads you to assume that I was THE coolest pregnant woman at the wedding, but I went out to dance once and lasted about half a Bruno Mars song. Still it was amazing that we were able to get out and celebrate from the comfortableness of table 7 with old friends who I missed. To the happy newlyweds, we love you two and wish you all the happiness and all the tax write off joy two married folks can have. #brissel2015 4w

luvandkiwi I met with my doula today... It was our last meeting before "the big get together". We talked a lot about labor and post birth stuff...I learned that Oxytocin is a shy hormone which makes me quite paranoid that I'm going to tap Mark in the middle of the night that it's time. While she's ripping me to shreds in there; stretching much like a starfish (i.e. All limbs a go!) I'm still not really all the way ready... I know... Who really is. Waiting for the ball to drop. Dang this went by fast! #37WeeksOfZiggy #ZiggyStardust2015 #37Weeks #doulaPower #doula #pregnancy 1mon

luvandkiwi So many reasons why I love living in LA and so many reasons why this city makes my ass twitch. I don't know how these numb nuts found me, but no! I will not be needing birthday plastic surgery to erase the signs of my pregnancy. You're bold, City... So bold. 1mon
