My son is so beautiful...
Even when he's telling me "no, you will never take a picture of me forever" 😹
The fact that I found a Beatles shirt this tiny makes my soul explode in the best way
Never in a million years did I think I'd be walking around in clothing I designed myself! I'm so blessed to be able to do what I love and get paid for it while also spending time with my babies 🖤
August N E V E R wore hats until we went to #DayOutWithThomas and got this hat for him. Now it's a struggle to get him to take it off sometimes!
It's so funny to watch him develop his own style. So far, it's lost of bright colors and characters!
In love with this print from @bettyratbag! Struggling with PPD is the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with but waking up to this print in the morning makes it a bit easier! 🖤
Current mood 😴
So of course when I'm exhausted, the kids are WIDE AWAKE! Isn't that how it always goes?
I've posted this before, but I love it too much to not put it on my new Instagram feed!
We are so in love with bonnets for Elle for autumn. How sweet does my little honey look?! What's your fall staple for your little wildling?
Brielle is turning EIGHT months old this week. I feel like just a moment ago, I was in my bathroom taking a test way before I was supposed to miss my period just because I had a feeling. Then the shock of seeing the two distinct lines... I couldn't stop myself from crying out, "thank you, God" in between sobs. I was overjoyed that he was giving us another chance to have a baby after our miscarriage, and He guided me through a (mostly) healthy pregnancy into a beautiful Caesarian birth and has given me the gift of being this sweet baby girl's mother. It doesn't seem like it's been so long since we found out we were being blessed with her, or even with August for that matter, but she'll be EIGHT months old. EIGHT. 😳
Lately, all August wants to watch is Tangled. He calls it the princess movie. He's terrified of Flynn for some reason, but that doesn't soften his obsession with Rapunzel. He watches her on repeat all day. Which is fine but I have yet to watch the lantern scene without crying, and again, we watch it on repeat all day. I'm a perpetual emotional mess.
My milk supply has dipped significantly so I'm doing everything I can to get it back up. Mother's Milk Tea, flaxseed, brewers yeast, oatmeal, water, lactation brownies, fenugreek... I'm trying it all. I'm heartbroken at the thought of not having the bond breastfeeding gives us, especially since my plan is full term nursing with Brielle. Please keep us in your prayers that I can get my supply back up and continue this beautiful journey with my daughter!
It must be annoying how much I've been posting autumn leaf and tree photos but I can't help it. I believe with my whole heart that fall is the most beautiful time of the year and I am grateful that I live in Indiana where I get to witness such vibrant autumns.
Their bond is magical to witness. Every time they wake up and see one another, it's a massive celebration. There's hugging and giggling, true and pure Heavenly joy. It's humbling when I think about being pregnant with Brielle and how worried I was that August wouldn't adjust, and to see now how incredible he is at being her brother. He is so helpful, so kind, and so loving toward her.
When I was little, I dreamed about having a daughter. I had this little redhead doll and a baby, and I would always pretend to be a frazzled mama. If only I would've known that 15 years later, here I'd be, with two babies and more frazzled that I ever thought to pretend. This baby girl, my Elle, has exceeded my dreams of what my daughter could be. She is perfect in every single way. I am so blessed and I am so grateful for it.
I must've said something pretty funny for a giggle this cute. He's at the age where he's talking like a real human, having full conversations. I'm so shocked by the things he says sometimes, too. I don't know where he learns the things he knows! Does anyone else feel like that with their wildlings?!
My second favorite time of the year. In Indiana, it's finally starting to feel like it, too. I walk outside my front door and the smell of fallen leaves hits me, the chilly air brings goosebumps to my arms, and there's a feeling of warmth within me despite that. There's always soup or stew in the crockpot, always some new warm cup of coffee or tea ready to sip, and there is a plethora of cuddles ready for me from my sweet babies. The absolute only thing that tops this season is Christmas time.
Lately, August's "thing" has been to tell me he's not a baby anymore, which breaks my heart because I already know he's a big ole toddler. Elle is almost eight months old so before I know it, she'll be telling me the same thing and my heart will break even more. It's like I blinked and they're not newborns anymore!
Oh, my Ellie girl, you have the light of Jesus shining through you. How much Heavenly joy can be contained in one tiny human?
