My two favorite people in the whole world. 🌎
Today you are three. ✨ Three years ago you were born in the very early morning & our lives & the people we were changed in an instant. You have filled our hearts & homes with so much joy & growth & love. They’re right when they say, “nothing can prepare you for the love”. I am still beside myself and in awe of the person you are every single day. You are sweet & spirited & smart & picky & hilarious & a little uncoordinated & you have undoubtedly changed our lives for the better. You have taught us so much about what life & love really means in these three short years & I know that this is just a taste of all I have to learn from you. Thank you for making me your mama, I love you O. #happybirthday 📷: @amyfrancesphoto
To this day my grandma calls me the night before my birthday to wish me a happy birthday eve. Tomorrow is Owen's birthday eve (which I know she will also call for). It's the last day he will be two and I'm feeling pretttttty emotional about it.
back home + repeating, I have found that if you love life, life will love you back. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @colleenmwisniewski shared these words by Arthur Rubinstein a couple weeks ago & I haven’t got them out of my head since. 📷: @amyfrancesphoto
“I will not teach or love or show you anything perfectly, but I will let you see me, and I will always hold sacred the gift of seeing you. Truly deeply seeing you.” - Brene Brown, The Wholehearted Parenting Manifesto | I feel like I say this with every age, but this is truly my favorite. Each and every day this kid shows me a little more of who he really is and will be and I’m just doing my best to soak it all up ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know I will never be the perfect mom (and would never strive to be), but it’s important to me that as Owen grows, he learns through my example what it means to give back to those in need. We recently placed our first order with @KIDBOX (a seasonal style box) to prep for fall. As we moved through their super simple ordering process, we were able to choose a charity we’d like to donate to with the click of a button. Being transparent with our little ones and supporting companies who make it a priority to give back is such a simple way to help raise conscious and kind kiddos.

Our last trip with a 2 year old, just 5 days until he's 3 💔😭
This photo is cheesy (according to my sister in law), but I love it anyway. So happy we made this little human & life together, Z.
Palacio Real, taken in the 20 minutes before the tantrum set in & I had to take this kid out kicking and screaming. 🤷🏼♀️ #toddlers
