Loves to kick and splash in the pool now! Can roll around like crazy and is allllllmost crawling! Is a fan of purées and wants to put every toy in his mouth. No teeth yet, but working on it! So blessed to have such a happy, growing baby boy.
is there anything better than those baby thighs and the beach?!? 😍
"Dagli altoparlanti del camioncino una musica, in genere di tipo circense, annunciava l’arrivo del gelataio, dando ai bambini il tempo di afferrare tutti gli spiccioli che trovavano in giro per casa e di corrergli incontro. Il gelataio veniva chiamato The Good Humor Man, l’uomo del Buonumore."
14.6.2018 alweer een jaar geleden... We kregen een nieuwe ‘bladderscan’ (blaasvolume meten d.m.v. Echografie) op de afdeling. Om te zien hoe deze werkte keek ik mee met mijn collega’s.. het begon als grapje: “hè! Zou je met dit ding ook de baby kunnen zien?” Na wat gelach en grapjes gaf mijn cliënt de doorslag: probeer eens dan! Misschien kan ik dan eindelijk jouw baby ontmoeten! Even was het stil.. ach laten we maar proberen.. en ja hoor.. na even zoeken (dit apparaat is niet zo sterk en nauwkeurig als dat van een verloskundige) sprong er opeens een boontje door het beeldscherm.. ondanks dat je weinig kon zien was het toch even stil in de slaapkamer.. geweldig!
Het liefst sta je dan de hele dag met dit apparaat in je armen.. maar ik wist maar al te goed dat dat niet kon en niet verstandig was (stel je voor dat je je baby ‘even’ niet kon vinden..)
Een week later had ik mijn laatste nachtdienst.. een rustige nacht.. opeens dacht ik aan de bladderscan.. zal ik het doen? Het was een rustige nacht.. ik besloot het stiekem toch nog even te proberen (voor mijn ex-collega’s.. jaaa sorry 😂 pregnancy Made me do it😂) Duidelijk zijn de beelden niet.. maar daar in die mist bewoog mijn kindje.. Vieve.. kan me niet voorstellen dat ik haar nog maar zo kort ken.. het lijkt wel of ze altijd al bij ons was.. gut wat was ik toen al trots op dit friemelende frutseltje.. ❤️👶🏼
19 weeks and feeling that heat wave ☀️ we’re almost halfway there little man!
Drinking water all day and eating oranges with tajin are my thing right now 🙌🏼 #19weekspregnant #itsaboy💙 #pregnancyjourney

Day 21: We went to Batter and Dough where the kids got to choose all of the toppings on their mini pancakes. lucky for us, they messed up the order and we got an extra set of mini pancakes. we made a mess, then went home and swam. not the most productive day but also not the least!!! we did go through 6 loads of laundry but one really crappy diaper set us back one..... bahahahaah!
I don’t know if it was a blessing or a curse that our WiFi was too slow to upload hardly anything while on vacation. I could still edit, but it seemed useless because nothing would sync to the cloud for safe keeping or posting, so after a couple days I just gave in and relaxed. Since I actually couldn’t get anything done to catch up on my editing, it took some of the stress off my shoulders and we had a fun week. But as soon as we were in the car driving home, the panic and anxiety of all I had to do when we got back took over and I could hardly sit for the drive knowing what I was coming back to. So I’m starting with a few of my loves, then it’s a long week of editing weddings and headshots! At least I have a trip out west in July to meet some awesome insta friends @paintbrushesandpictures and @tracy_twins_and_gingerkids to keep me motivated and productive!
Same place 4 years difference 😮 didnt plan this at all the photo on the left came up in my memories today&I was shocked.
The first thing that hits me is how my sweet kids have grown! So thankful that I have had a front row seat to watch all the ways they have grown and developed over these years. The young years are so formative&important to children. I thank God for the opportunity I’ve been given in being responsible for these little souls. Sometimes I feel like I’m behind the 8 ball in my career since it’s been largely put on hold until my kids were older. While I’ve been working hard on making the strides I can I have chose to foremost do what’s best for my little family. When I feel like this I remind myself these years only happen once! I am so thankful I have been here to bear witness to every success, pitchy fit, stage, and important time for the children. They are all that matters, and the only “job” I’ll have that has eternal consequences.
Now let’s talk about Mama’s changes, the girl on the right was anxious, unsure and striving to be what everyone else wanted her to be. I lived in constant fear of what people thought of me, and struggled with hard things at a young age. The woman on the left? Is glowing and ✨living✨! I still have anxiety but I also have peace of mind that is God given. Through every struggle God has been faithful. In these four years I’ve gotten (almost) two degrees, graduated with my first with a 4.0 GPA and two certificates in my field, I started homeschooling the kids and have been able to discover who I was as a person. And guess what? I’m unapologetic about it! This is who God made me to be&I’m gonna own it! That smile on the left..is genuine! Have things been easy? HECK NO! 😂 but I’m learning to laugh about things that would’ve been a stumbling block to me before.
I feel like having these two photos on my camera roll at the same time was a “God nudge”. Sometimes I can’t see the forest for the trees. This was a visual reminder to me that I have came a long way, praise Jesus! I have a ways to go but glad God holds my hand all the way! Sidenote: one thing that didn’t change was my love of Lilly, wearing in both photos!
Have any of you visited Baltimore? My family and I did a few weeks ago and had so much fun! I wrote a blog post on it - Family-Friendly Travel Guide - Baltimore. It is loaded with family friendly activities you can do, where to eat and stay! Check it out, link in my bio!
When she asks if we can take pictures in her “cute ballet shirt & bathing suit” you make it happen. She is so full of personality and I don’t think I could ever get enough!
Loves Swimming, Pop Babies (popsicles),gymnastics (flips and trampoline are her fav ) , making animal sounds, slides on the playground, bubbles/sand/water play, taking care of her baby, and likes push toys as well and playing chase with Daddy. Favorite foods are plain yogurt, fruit, applesauce, Alfredo noodles. She is doing well using a spoon and her toothbrush and loves bathtime! We also have learned to take care of boo boos and enjoy facials (aka lotion on our face)
Not a fan of puppets, small stuffed unicorns, sticky squish animals. Enjoys her space and doesn’t love to share her babies or mommy or Oma especially ... she learned the word “mine” at daycare and it has become popular. She was very excited to meet her baby Cousin Oaklyn !
Holy photogenic Batman. Went out with this gal a couple weeks back. Shortly after we both got hit with some stupid viruses. What is with the sickness that’s floating around everywhere?! @autumnhope.art and I actually met online through an online group called Social Curators that @jasminestar has created. It’s an amazing community full of wonderful ideas and support. I’m so so thankful I came across that group. Anyway, turns out that autumn and I live in the same city. So obviously we needed to get together, ammiright?! We shared laughs, drinks, and stories about who we are. It was a pretty awesome day. Looking forward to more hangouts, friend 🥰. Also, if you haven’t made it down to @parlouricecreamhouse yet, you should. Like, now.
This pretty much sums up our week away. Rain with a sprinkling of sunny spells. On a side note, 10 minutes after I took this photo, a seagull came and took my burger straight out my hand. I'm still full of rage now 👿
We drove to Colorado early this morning, had an eye doctor appointment, and went to a farm today ❤ Feels so weird not having our little guys here but it is nice being able to spoil our girl before her surgery tomorrow.
Ellie wanted to show off our new reading corner. I painted an old dollhouse bookshelf I found for $20 🙌🏻 Now we have more room for books and toys! I also made the rainbow silk garland. Found the silks on Amazon. Check out my playroom highlights for a full tour ❤️
Diego: Shaaaake dude, they have to be somewhere around here!
Bruno: Are you sure this is the same tree where Santa left the presents last time? 🌲🌲
Привет, меня зовут Роберт, мне полтора года. Я болтун и бегун. Мама не успевает меня ловить и не успевает записывать новые слова, которые я ежедневно запоминаю и пытаюсь произнести 🙂
Исправляюсь, записываю, а то забуду. Герда и Айвор больше молчали в этом возрасте или использовали редкие слоги для обозначения каких-то предметов. Роберт же с выражением лопочет постоянно на все лады: тятя, тотото, тутита, плюс есть конкретные слова, которые он применяет совершенно в нужный момент:
✔️Мама, папа, баба
✔️Ава, Дада - Айвор, Герда
✔️Матя, Лизя - наши друзья: Маша, Лиза
✔️Адай! - Отдай!
✔️Мамета - монета (я разорилась на аппаратах-каталках, куда надо кидать монетку 😂)
✔️Птитя, птити - птица, птицы
✔️Пуу - суп
✔️Кака (ударение на первую а) - каша
✔️Кака (ударение на вторую а) - пока!
✔️Кока - кошка
✔️Сё! - Всё! (когда наелся, отодвигает от себя тарелку: «Сёё!»
✔️Патя - платье или юбка (у мамы)
✔️Цяка - чайка (и обязательно копирует крик чаек: а-а, а-а!
✔️Футь-футь - телефон (умеет набирать сам папе и бабушке)
✔️Гооо! - Гол! (пинает ногой мяч)
✔️Бабой! (ударение на о) - Большой!
✔️Ма-ааиии! - маленький
✔️Гаки - глазки
✔️Нё-о - носик
✔️Фапа - шапка
Вот такие смешные милости, вроде ерунда, а маленький человек уже наладил общение с большим миром 👌🏻🙂
Violet is living her best life this summer. They wake up and get in the pool while I keep them fueled with snacks. Cheese fries are their favorite! #sponsored
I just take some @alexiafoods House Cut Fries with Sea Salt, melt some Parmesan cheese on top and sprinkle a little Parsley. Voila- poolside summer snack! How are you spending your summer?
