Only four days in the office until I take leave to prepare for the role of a lifetime! Shoutout to my #RenewCrew 💟 for the surprise shower on my last Monday at work until I get to waddle around at home, host my own Marvel marathon (#InfinityWar )🍿, pet my cats 🐱🐱, and watch @danilodee try to install a car seat 👨🏻🔬...all of which have the potential to be equally entertaining. Any mamas have tips on how I should spend my last couple weeks before Bronx arrives? 👶🏽 #9monthspregnant
November 17, 2017 • Transfer Day!! This was our first family photo, we all look very exhausted from the trip and Case is picking his nose 😂 I can’t wait to recreate this when baby is here ❤️ The very next morning Jeremy made us pancakes for breakfast and one of them closely resembled our little hatching embaby. So of course we had to document it. 🥞
17 weeks pregnant with TWINS! It still doesn’t seem real. 😱
I’m getting as much use out of my incredibly comfy @todaysmodernbebe Modern Babe sweater as I can while I can still fit into it 🙈 I’m going to be so sad when I can no longer squeeze my big ol’ belly into it 😩• use our code GRIFF15 to save on anything and everything at @todaysmodernbebe 😘 #xolittle
Yesterday, on our way to dinner with some friends, I discovered the first delicate pink flowers unfurling on the tips of the branches outside her door, the first outward sign of new life and growth, of spring. These flowering trees are by far my favorite part of spring and I’ve been waiting to see when they will flower this year since the colder winter seems to be pushing the flowers later this year.
Have you discovered any spring flowers yet?
Baby Leo Judah has been sleeping thru the night for 2 weeks now and last night he slept almost 12 hrs thru😳 So amazing!💙 I miss him when he’s sleeping 😴 but I also don’t mind having some “me” time and a good night sleep.💆🏻♀️ #nofilterneeded#mybabyboy#boymom#momtogs_topdown
[36 WEEKS] You’re kicking me SMALLS!!! • The home stretch has begun, which also means weekly doctors appointments, way too realistic dreams and way too little sleep. With as sick as I have been most of this pregnancy, I have been in survival mode and haven’t been able to dream about the end of pregnancy, but now that’s it’s here, it feels like everything is in hyper speed! • I am no longer fighting morning sickness (AMEN!), but the end of pregnancy aches, pains and fatigue have kicked in. Growing a baby is legit. And as you can guess from my caption, this little wiggle worm is moving around A LOT! • The girls are ready for the baby to come out and ask me everyday if today is the day they get their baby. My 5 year old keeps leaving notes around the house that say, “Come out baby!” - Haha! • I have already had a couple of emotional moments with my hubby and the bump and thinking about how soon our sweet baby will be in our arms and this pregnancy part will be over; such a surreal thought. As hard as it has been, I am sad to see it go. I know it is my third time, but every pregnancy has it’s special moments and I am so grateful to have experienced the range of experiences. We have been praying and dreaming so much for this baby and we feel so blessed. • As these last few weeks race by, I have decided to slooooow it down and simply be more present in the moment. Most of my before-baby to-do’s are done and honestly, since it’s our third, I have decided to not let myself get overwhelmed with having every last detail done on time. I will have plenty of time to create a nursery once the baby arrives. (At least that is what I am telling myself!) 🖤
This sweet customizable bag has proven to be very useful with going back and forth to the house during our renovations. Although today I may find some rocks and grass pieces at the bottom from this little adventurer 😆 You can use the code CUSTOMBAG53 to get free US ground shipping for the next 24 hours!
I’ll be lying if I told you I’m not exhausted because I am! It’s hard to believe my 3rd year is coming up in May. My life changed after having Amelia. The photography dream I once had was getting further away. I still wish for days I can attend fashion week again, or do photo shoots. Never I thought I’d be designing clothes especially children’s. It started out as when my little space in our apartment now to a full master room in the house. I had only plan to create pieces for Amelia but expanded beyond on that. Months of planning and prepping for upcoming seasons. All the deadlines. It’s such an honor to see my designs being worn after it’s all done. It’s a pinch me moment every time. After each releases, I go back to planning the next season. Thank you for those who’s been falling my journey and supporting small shops.
It’s the simple things, a sunny start to the week and a new runner for mama! 💃🏼 Hope you found your reason to dance in the kitchen this Monday! ☀️ . In LOVE w my new rug from @ecarpetgallery . http://liketk.it/2v2OS @liketoknow.it #liketkit
Week 38 #CountdownToAyden this past week I’ve been extremely exhausted but filled with so much energy. It makes absolutely no sense. This week has been filled with my very first pregnancy cravings: just fruit. All Ayden wants is strawberries and Mandarine oranges. He is still kicking and moving around in there which is surprising considering he’s on the bigger side and should be out of womb already. The carpal tunnel in both of my hands is still there and unisom is starting to not help with the insomnia anymore. There are definitely things that I will miss once he decides to make an entrance. #thirtyeightweeks#38weekspregnant#38weeks#pregnancyzone#pregnantandperfect#pregnant#pregnancy#countdown#babyboy#thebump#babycenter @thebump @pregnant.photos @pregnancy.zone @pregnancygram_ @pregnancyguide @pregnancyproblems @pregnantandperfect @inspirepregnancy @cute_pregnancy @babycenter

Officially on maternity leave and nesting from here on out. 🤰🏻My sweet princess 👑 will be arriving soon and I am over the moon in love waiting to meet her, hold her and see that beautiful face. 💗 I’ve longed and dreamed of this moment since forever.
