What song is running through your head right now? 😏🦁 #lionkingmoment
He may not look very much like us, with his blonde hair and blue eyes, but he’s definitely a foodie like us! Swipe across to see Arlo smash his birthday cake which was nearly too pretty to do so and totally delicious!!! Thanks to @gracepatisserie.nz
#mumlife means less time and money for spa treatments, that’s why I love @essano_beauty new collagen boost range. It has this Mumma’s skin feeling firm and hydrated. See my step by step guide over on my insta-stories 🧖♀️ #gifted #essano #essanobeauty
Arlo turned 1! -- and we didn't throw him a first birthday party. *GASP!* I can hear you saying, WHAT? What is wrong with these parents?! Isn’t Jessie the self-proclaimed Martha Stewart and Pinterest Queen of throwing parties? See why and what we did get up to on www.jessieandjake.com (link in bio)
365 day of you! When I found out I was gonna become a mama, I made a silent promise to myself that I would slow down and give you the time and comfort you needed. Your safe place in this world. I knew that these days would go by so fast and you falling sleep on my chest would become less and less. The dishes could wait, the shower could wait, my little Arlo needed me, my warmth, my heart beat. Every day without fail I would send Daddy selfies of you asleep on my chest. Sure my hair wasn’t done or my makeup but they are some of my most favourite memories.
And just like that the little boy that made us parents turned ONE! Happy Birthday Arlo! I love being your Mumma, watching you grow and learn everything about the world while being your safe place in it.
Kissing my little Arlo with so many feels tonight, for when he wakes he will be one! Jokes....who am I trying to fool, we will be up at least 35 times before sunrise 🤣
Throwback to only days old because we are going to have a one year old soon and I can’t deal 😭
Apologies in advance for all the newborn spam as I take a walk down memory lane in the lead up to Arlo’s first birthday! Feeling all the feels 😭 📷: @candycapcophoto
👆How we feel about @instagram removing likes 👏👏👏

Look at that face!!!! Can you see why it’s smothered in kisses daily?! We brought Arlo a Pikler Traiangle from @havidesign as an early birthday present. Let’s be honest he has no idea when his birthday is anyway 🤷🏻♀️🤣 He loves it and it’s perfect for helping helping him develop his motor skills, strength and build his confidence!
