"Sorry but being a mum isn't a job - its even harder"
I stumbled across an article (see link in stories) and it got me saying yes yes yes to so many points highlighted.
Being a parent is hard work but in no way is it classified as a job. "Calling it such cheapens what we do"
Everytime she sees me,
she starts to smile and coo.❤
I feel like she can recognize my face and voice more now.
Although I'm pretty sure she's known me since life in the womb
and wow, my sister has some skills with that crocheted blanket👍 @lindasheeep
My mom doesn’t want to wake me but it’s 7pm, I just finished feeding after one of the longest naps I’ve had since being born (3hrs 30mins), I’ve got pee and poop in my diaper and I need my clean PJs cause this onesie smells like milk spit-up. On the other hand, her head is spinning cause if she lets me sleep then I might want to party come 1am-2am-3am-4am...Ay yi yi! Just change my diaper, my clothes and try to swaddle me! This bed I’m on is a hot mess so what the hey, go all in and let chance determine whether there’s a messy rest of the night...good night y’all!
I’m told that my husband was an easy baby so we are in agreement that this little dude takes after him. (Crazy Killian takes after me, if you’re wondering. 🤣) #finleybjorn3#mellowfellow#newbornlife @est3p24
Initially I wrote this long post about OCD and how debilitating it can be. But then I decided that would be feeding it more energy, which it DOES NOT deserve. 👋🏻 My kids caught something the doc said is “easily spread” and you’d think it was the fucking plague over here. I looked at Josh and was like, “I’ve never felt more grossed out in my own house before.”😷 His response was “Well, you’ve also never had two kids before.” 😂 Well played, Sir. Touché. #peace#love#momlifeyo
Our week started and is ending with our hearts full of love! Sunday night at 8:51pm we got to meet our new baby girl, Audrey Rose! 💝🌹 The biggest of our little bigs, she started life outside of Momma at 10 pounds and 13 ounces. Nurses and docs got her on air quick but she was able to come off after a few hours. Her blood sugar was low which kept us in the NICU until this morning. We are watching and hoping that she will start to move her right arm over the next couple of weeks. She likely has some nerve damage which is preventing her from using it just yet but is expected to heal on its own for the most part. Thank you to our friends and family for all the prayers this week! Can’t wait to see you all soon!

Can’t believe how much she’s changed since she was born. Clementiny has chunked up nice for us! By 2 months I think technically a baby is no longer a newborn, but since she was born 3 weeks early I’m gonna hold onto #newbornlife until she’s 3 months lol. Time is going by way too fast. #ohmydarlingclementine#darlingdaughter#momlife
Today was all about the booty 🍑. I suffer from #noassatall#forreal 🤣🙋🏽♀️🤣. Do you suffer from it, too😂? I am looking forward to how this program targets the booty 🍑 with toning and giving a much desired lift.
Weekdays are busy for us. I do a lot of driving and running around with my older girls going to different schools for half the day. I am always thankful to be able to squeeze in this workout at home in the morning. I would probably skip today’s workout if I had to go to the gym!
There’s a lot of THIS happening these days — snuggles and naps— just not for extended periods of time in the dark hours of the day. 🤦🏼♀️ I used to be (okay, I still am) Type A, feeling only accomplished in the day if I was very productive. #gogogo 🏃🏼♀️ I’m currently reading my friend @chantalrussell journey in #WildfireWithin and am taking a page on slowing down. 📖 🙏🏼 I’m learning to appreciate the quiet moments, the days with nothing on the calendar, the long naps, and the snuggles that he will soon grow out of. I am listening to my body and honouring its needs. ❤️ #newbornlife#theunhustle#slowdownyoumovetoofast#makethemomentscount
This time last year, we were strolling the streets of Paris, photographing the most romantic surprise engagement. Yesterday, we were strolling the aisles of Target, and it felt like just as much of an adventure 😂 #newbornlife
I have no idea how newborn photographers do it but trying to take pictures of our little girl is challenging! If I wait until she’s tired, her eyes aren’t fully open or she closes them but if I wait until she’s wide awake well then... you can see for yourself lol 😂
Happy 8 WEEKS to our little Maelani Jade 💖👶🏻 🙏🏽 •
It’s been one of those days...you know, the days when your toddler wakes up super early, your newborn is constantly hungry and fussy, and your toddler brings you a handful of her poop and says “uh oh”... but I still find myself feeling so blessed! It could always be worse. I’m so thankful for these two little munchkins! Being a mom is the hardest job in the world but SO rewarding. #butineedwine#toddlerlife#newbornlife#happyFriday
Baby Emma is on her late morning nap, making it the perfect time for coffee and a little skin prep for tomorrow. #BirthdayWeek ! 🤞🏻 Here’s hoping she doesn’t wake up and wonders why a smurf is trying to feed her. 😂 💙
