Looking up to big cousin Jakin cause he can read. 😳🙌🏻 #cousinlove #storytime #saturdayvibes
I love how she can sleep anywhere! If only I slept that peacefully in the middle of the living room with a toddler running around playing “garbage man”. We were getting cabin fever something fierce today so off to the library we went and enjoyed every minute of it. Why is it that just getting out of the house is such a welcome relief sometimes? What do you do to fight cabin fever in these cold winter days? #cabinfever #winterdays
Today started out rough - I think everyone woke up on the wrong side of the bed. 😩 But praise the Lord for mid-week Bible study and the opportunity to put my focus back on my God instead of the temporary frustrations of the day. It’s amazing how much my attitude influences my children’s attitudes. In the heat of a battle with my toddler I took a few seconds to regain my focus and approach the issue again with a new attitude and BOY DID THAT HELP! My toddler’s fussy attitude died in an instant and I had a happy giggly boy again who didn’t fight for a minute the food that I had placed in front of him. It’s SO important for me to keep my attitude in check! . . . . . . #motherhoodunplugged #parenting #mothering #joyful #newborn #organiccotton #letthembelittle #ourcandidlife #liveauthentic #momtogs #our_everyday_moments #motherhoodrising #motherhoodsimplified #underthenile
You can see in his eyes how much he loves his little sister. 😍👶🏻 I just love seeing him try to include her in his play, offering her his legos, little people, Cheerios (maybe that one isn’t so good. Ha!), and trucks. They are going to have so much fun when Emmy gets a bit bigger and can actually interact with him. #motherhood #siblinglove
Boy what a weekend - filled with such fun! A trip to the Shedd Aquarium, a bridal shower, visiting with family, and much needed rest on Sunday afternoon. Today turned out to be remarkably warm and rainy so we braved the drizzles and took a walk to the library while splashing in puddles along the way. Now I’m off to hopefully put both kids to nap at the same time and I’ll have a few moments of complete quiet. 🙌🏻 Wish me luck. 😉 #motherhood #toddlerlife #puddles #rainydayvibes
Why is it when my days are super busy I neglect to do the most important things ... read God’s Word. 🤔 Taking this peaceful moment when both kids are sleeping to refresh my heart and soul. How do you stay focused when there are so many things pulling for your attention?
