  • If you've been following us for a little while, you may know that Addi has some hearing loss at the higher decibels.

Because of this, we have worked with an audiologist and speech pathologist to make sure she has everything she needs to be successful and develop her speech as best we can.

So, today I thought I would share 5 things that really have been key to getting this little monkey talking! 
The link is in my bio!

  • The days he chooses not to take a nap are quite the adventure. From singing the song of his people to moments like this. I embrace these days to remember to not take life too seriously, and to not sweat the public meltdowns. It happens. Life with a toddler is never dull! ❤️

  • FRIDGE PURGE

I’m rather far behind on my posts due to being out of town for two weeks now. Where I last left off, we were working on clearing out our fridge and freezer as much as possible in anticipation of being gone for four weeks.

We had a lot of meats in the freezer, as well as misc ingredients in the fridge (ie. pumpkin puree and ricotta) that we had to find ways to use up with buying the minimum to supplement.

The other goal was to spend little time cooking and a lot of timing prepping the suitcases and cleaning the house prior to leaving, so lunches were mostly planned to be quick. I also needed them to be easy for CM to eat unassisted as no2 loooooves being held.

Other than pre-travel stresses, it was a really charming week of CM being really playful with her stuffed animals, books, and baby brother. Meanwhile, no2 is more alert and showing lots of interest in CM’s chatter 🥰. So I let them entertain each other while I prep meals.

SUNDAY’S (January 26th) MEALS
Breakfast: banana, buttered brioche
Lunch: quesadilla, refried beans, rice
Snack: ❄️ spinach muffin 
Dinner: pizza. Apple tart

  • In addition to my side business where I help others achieve their goals and mommin’ it 24/7, I work for a medical device company. Lately it’s been a busy job and not my favorite, but it pays the bills. In turn for everything I just mentioned, my house is an absolute disaster! But that’s what happens with an almost 14-month-old!

I would rather spend the time playing with him and watching him in his glory than constantly having to pick everything up, because we all know it’s just going to look this way again in 5 minutes.

This is life!

  • We love visiting Gabby and Papa! Years ago for the first grandchild my mom turned a walk in closet into a ‘nursery nook’ so the grand babies had a comfy quiet place to call their own. It makes traveling with babies so much easier!

  • How do know when you're ready to change 🤔
You may NEVER be ready friends 🤫
Change isn't something that comes easy to most people.
Some people aren't really EVER ready to change they just know that something isn't working 🤯
They are tired of feeling sluggish 😴
In pain from a few extra pounds🍟🍔🍕
Unable to do the things they used to do 🚲
Not fitting into the clothes they used to wear or 
No longer able to play with their children like they used to 😥

They 👆 weren't necessarily "ready" to change their lives and start a new way of life.... THEY JUST DID IT 😮 and eventually they became willing to change 🙌

You're never going to be ready 😳
Just like I wasn't ready either 🤷‍♀️ but, one day I decided that enough was enough and I decided to do what was working for another Mama I knew  #resultsdontlie 🤗

The time will never be right so, why not start today???
I'm here when you're willing ladies 😘

  • Every day with Mia Mae is beautiful. Goodness she is so smart, fun and funny.  Every day she does something new like how she balances her self,  a new dance or sings a whole nursery rhyme . I think pink and yellow are her favorite colors because she's always asking for pink gelato (pomegranate oh so yummy) or her pink peppa spoon, bowl, fork and cup. Yellow plate, ball and pen. She's got my heart and I love her so much. I'm so proud of her development.

  • Motherhood is messy. And challenging. And crazy. And sleepless. And giving. And still unbelievably beautiful. 💗

This little guy was up extra early since he’s sick with a fever and not feeling well. All he wants is to be held and loved on, do you blame him?! So I’m extremely thankful I was able to take the day off from work, so I can keep loving on this sweet babe while he naps. I’m going to keep soaking in these snuggles and know everything (chores & work) will be waiting for me when he starts to feel better. .
.
.
I was able to lay him down in his crib to get a 35 minute workout in before he wanted to be picked up again. I’m grateful to be able to have these workouts so available to me, to maintain consistency. Plus exercise boosts the immune system to prevent getting sick, which I definitely  want & the added bonus is I don’t have to leave the house!! 🙌🏼💪🏼

  • Happy Friday Y’all!
I took a half day today to take our sweet baby Diesel for his last round of puppy shots.
Sassy and I got home in record time, so I cleaned out my car and organized my bag. 
What’s in your bag?
Today I have, clothes for Scarlett (we’re 3 and sometimes don’t like to stop the fun to make it potty on time), toys, my food journal, body spray, my emergency bag with all the things a lady could need, and a Highlights magazine for Scarlett. So basically it’s Scarlett’s bag and I just get to carry it lol

It’s so quick to make & I know that it has the best organic ingredients for my family💙 Plus the white cheddar flavor is my favorite- and my kid’s love it too! Now how long do you think it will take until my kid’s  realize I’m out here having a mommy time out on the back porch?!😜 #homemadewithannies

  • Hug your little ones that wee bit tighter tonight. Keep them up passed bedtime on occasion so you can eat chocolate & watch movies. Let them tiptoe to your room during the night & squeeze in for a cuddle with Mama because it's where they feel safest. Heck let them sleep there every night for the short period it will be. 
Cuddle your babies and cuddle them even more because nothing makes you feel happier & there's no such thing as "spoiling your baby with love" (🙄) .

Soak up every passing minute before they become their own little character that doesn't depend so much on mama anymore.

Don't be so regimated by a need for structure or the opinions of narrow minded people that you forget to enjoy these little moments you'll crave to relive years from now. .

The hours are long but the days are short 🧡 .

  • Hug your little ones that wee bit tighter tonight. Keep them up passed bedtime on occasion so you can eat chocolate & watch movies. Let them tiptoe to your room during the night & squeeze in for a cuddle with Mama because it's where they feel safest. Heck let them sleep there every night for the short period it will be.

  • Oh my little sweetness- Jovie is a full on 3 year old. She LOVES so hard and FEELS so hard, and gets so MAD. She can be the kindest most thoughtful little girl and then in a split second turn into a gremlin in full on tantrum mode. She makes cry and laugh in the same day and throw my hands up in the air and say Jesus take the wheel.  Then when I finally get her to bed after quite the struggle and check on her sleeping so beautifully I think of how wonderful she is. To all toddler moms out there, we got this!

  • At lunchtime, I was looking everywhere but couldn’t find Violet’s cup. Something yellow caught my eye behind the window curtain, where I found the cup lined up with some other treasures 😂😂😂 #lifewithatoddler #littlemclevy

  • This parenting gig is tough.
Confusing.
Controversial.
Rewarding.
Exhausting.
Frustrating.
Overwhelming.
.
Ok, all of the feels.
.
When I first became a mom, I was so excited to fill Easter baskets, plan outfits for family pictures and give my kids the best life.
.
But a lot of question arose. They still do. I know I’m doing the best I can but can I know more to do better?
.
Parenting doesn’t have to be battles, resistance, unwanted behaviours or feelings of anxiety or frustration. I mean these are also very normal when it comes to providing structure and guiding our children but there are ways to do it easier.
.
It doesn’t have to be labels or be so complicated where you question how you want to parent vs. how you “should” parent.

  • ⚙️This is a challenging one.⚙️

🤱🏼When our son was born, I remember looking at our 2.5 year old daughter’s hands and thinking, “holy crap she’s huge!” And in the weeks that followed, I often (yet unconsciously) communicated unrealistic expectations onto her- thinking she should somehow, magically, suddenly know better.
.
🤭Knowing what your child is capable of is important- because your expectations are born from that knowledge. And these capabilities are dependent on a number of factors, including but not limited to:
-their age
-their developmental stage -changes at home (move, new sibling)
-social exposure (daycare, nanny, play dates, structured activity
-their individual personalities -their communication style
.
➕Additionally, recognizing that our kids are not superhuman and can have their own version of a “bad day”- helps immensely to keep your expectations of them in check. .

Okay, raise your hand if you sang the song! 🙋🏾‍♀️⁣
⁣
Ever since Rylan was able to eat from a pouch she always wanted to hold it by herself and lord knows this mama went through that trial and error. I’m talking pressed fruits and veggies on the walls and the floor, but no fear we are here for you mama! @choomee has truly been our knight in shining armor! Not only are their snack pack designs cute, colorful and fun, they are reusable, dishwasher friendly, and effective in every way.⁣
⁣
Rylan is able to feed herself and mommy is able to not worry about the mess that comes after it. Their softsip pouch tops are easy to attach to any standard pouch, they are soft, durable and they’re truly promoting independence in this little one. That’s a win in itself in my book! ⁣

  • My biggest fear as a parent is that my shortcomings will hurt my son. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I stress about the things I wasn't taught as a child that have caused me turmoil as an adult. I worry that because I wasn't brought up in space that taught me self-discipline or healthy boundary setting that I'll pass that on to Max.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a parent- my biggest fear is that I'll mess up my kid, not because of the things I know, but because of the things I don't know. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you're with me, here are some of the ways I'm working through this:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I may not know the the exact instructions to tell Max about creating healthy boundaries with family and friends, but my hopes are that if I push myself to get better at creating boundaries for myself, even when it's uncomfortable and unnatural to me, he'll have an example to go by. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I didn't grow up with a lot of structure or discipline. If I want that to be a pillar in my son's life, I can do things like be dependable in both love and discipline, and create routine that will show him what consistency and stability look like.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lastly I tell myself that at the end of the day, my biggest job is help him be great by being as great as I can be. By acknowledging the places that can be worked on and by also giving myself credit for all of the wonderful things I will pass down to him, like work-ethic, empathy, ambition and kindness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Not even sure how I managed to look this presentable after the night I had 🙃 I feel like I just had a newborn baby & broke my back 😴 nothing like sleeping on your toddlers floor at 32 weeks pregnant for 5 hours 🙃 transitioning a 2 year old in their own room is hard especially after cosleeping since they were a newborn. Never making that mistake again. 😬 But he slept all night in his crib, wasn’t terrified and anxious of his crib like he used to be, so night 1 was a stride in the right direction to get this boy sleeping on his own before his sibling arrives 🖤🤍 13 more nights to go! 👶🏼 #raisingtinyhumansisexhausting #sleeptraining #momlife #transitioning #toddlermom #boymom #pregnant #lifewithatoddler #momminainteasy

Wer kennt‘s?

Ja, wir sind wieder alle zu 90% gesund und die Party des kleinsten Familienmitgliedes konnte gestern, wie geplant, stattfinden 💛
•
Der kleine Pirat hatte eine Menge Spaß und heute geht’s direkt weiter mit der Feierei 😅
•
Danke für die ganzen Glückwünsche 💛
•
Und jetzt mal zum Bild 😅
Die liebe Jules @babyhitparade hat einen wunderbaren, neuen # ins Leben gerufen #mydetailsunday 👍🏻
•
Und da ich finde, dass Detailbilder hier relativ wenig Beachtung finden, mache ich gerne mit und steuere ein Bild aus der gemütlichen Bettecke bei...
•
Hüpft doch mal zu ihr rüber und schaut euch in ihrem wunderschönen Zuhause um... Definitiv #onetofollow

  • I never take care of myself.

Motherhood has me so bogged down in genuine exhaustion and emotional + mental exhaustion from the monotony of being home constantly that, though my faith is there, I know it is, I don’t remember the last time I turned to God to get ME through the everyday. I see and hear other people’s struggles and instantly ask Him to show them His love, grace and healing but I never ask it for myself.

Even a daily devotional as brief as these isn’t ever high on my to-do list, I can feel life getting harder and I’m wishing for material things, assuming they’ll bring light into my life, when in reality time with God is the only thing that can mend what I’ve been feeling.

Today I opened this guy for the first time in 2020 and turned to today’s date and it just always blows my mind how His presence is so big always.

Sharing this because I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling like I’ve failed at being a daughter of God, and a simple reminder like my devotional today screamed at me that He wants to hear all of it, the big + the small even from little ole me.
