These two miracle babies. My heart is torn when I think of the physical and emotional pain of going through IVF again in the future, but I would go through a thousand more injections for these two precious ones. ♥️♥️♥️
.
Many are making statuses right now talking about miscarriages, rainbow babies 🌈, and perinatal support. What they don’t often mention is that even years later a mama’s heart aches for the babies she lost. My arms are full and I could use a few more hands these days, but it doesn’t mean that my heart doesn’t know that two are missing. Two are waiting. Two are miracles unseen and unheld.
.
But they were miracles still. Even if just for mere weeks versus years. Always loved. 😭 Always remembered.

Me vs. also me
—
I used to glance at photos of fit girls online and think gosh how do they not have ANY rolls?
—
Then...I also learned the beauty of angles and lighting.
—
I went through the miracle of pregnancy. I gave birth to this rambunctious toddler. My body has endured amazing things and MY SKIN will forever be changed!
—
Am I appreciative and grateful of how far I’ve come?
Am I still pushing myself to reach new goals?
Can I desire to be STRONGER day after day?
—
YES!! And girlfriend, so can you! 😘 We all have skin and we all have different bodies! Let’s embrace that together and help each other reach new limits. 🎉30 mins at a time! One day at a time!

👉🏻OCTOBER 1st 👈🏻 starts my next online bootcamp! AND...in honor of my bday month 😏...the next 5️⃣ people get samples of my all natural, plant-based “get yo butt moving” MAGIC JUICE!!

A little #throwbackthursday to when we had the opportunity to visit a school at a local village in Fiji!
.
It was such a special afternoon as we experienced their culture and the joy beaming from the locals. Our hearts were full from our time there and further confirmed our quest to take strides to live a life focused more on experiences rather than things.
.
There’s so much beauty out there, different cultures to explore and new things to learn when you get out of your comfort zone.
.
So thankful for the reminder for our family to serve in different ways, that we are in this world but not of it, to appreciate the little things, and to always count our blessings.
.
Life is too short to spend it focused on things that don’t last. Less is truly more when all we need is founded on Jesus.
.

29 weeks today and feeling it. So tired. So sore. So grateful. Keeping up with my chores and responsibilities leaves my body feeling exhausted and in pain. Holding on tight to the fact that this is my last baby and cherishing the time. Only 11 weeks left my dude

Going out for coffee with kids: instagram vs reality ☕ . . . The past few posts have been a slew of plandid photos, so here's a nice dose of #realtalk. I received a work call while Isla was just waking up from her nap and needed lunch. They asked if it was an OK time, and I was like, "Oh, sure! I'm just out for lunch with my kids." (Narrator: "It was not, in fact, a good time.") William was tired because he woke up early and didn't nap (normally he naps in the car when we drive out to Surrey), so he decided that my being on the phone was the *perfect time* to start rolling all over the floor. I love working from home, because I'm just not ready to leave Isla quite yet, but boy, do I ever miss being able to have a conversation with adults sans kids (ok, I work with kids; sans *my* kids, I guess 😂). Fellow SAHP and WAHP: what are your tricks for regaining your sanity?! . . . 📸: @vanessafromvancouver

HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY KARAH! I’m usually pretty average when it comes to mommin not gonna lie( 3 kids within 4 years has drained the heck out of me) I’m definitely not a over the top, my life is a Pinterest board mom, but also not like here the tv is your mother now kinda mom. Today I needed to be the over the top mom and make my girl feel special. Last night I went to the store bought her balloons and a few presents so that when she woke up this morning she would be surprised & let me tell you she was nothing short of that! Her heart was so full and you could tell. She just kept telling me how much she loved me and kept putting her hands over her heart and staring up at us with her beautiful hazel eyes. When I think of all the times I’ve failed as mom, it’s times like these that push me to keep going and never give up.. to raise these kids to love Jesus and give them the best childhood we can possibly give. These are the moments I live for and when I’m having a hard day, I have these moments to look back on.  I’ve been on the struggle bus with her lately BUT she will always be my special girl who has been nothing short of a blessing in our lives. 🖤 #birthdaygirl #thisis5 #honestmotherhood

Yesterday the temperature dropped a bit and rained all day. Cam was so interested and was glued to the window. I took him outside under the patio to get a better look and he kept reaching for the rain. I love rainy days! Everything seems to slow down and it’s the perfect excuse to cuddle up with a good book or watch a movie.
What is your favorite thing about rainy days? 🌧

I’ve been reflecting on how parenting challenges you first, as a person! And second, as a partner/spouse! Both physically & mentally! My role as a mom is always on the “go, go,” and planning things beforehand, which is who I’m all about! I am a planner, a control freak, a little possessive at times, but you are challenged to the core 🙌 but so much stronger for it! I feel that I am becoming a much better person, wiser, and more confident! And I’m learning to let things go! ✨

Spending some time reflecting on this little life growing in my belly. It's hard to believe that in 4 weeks (or less) I'll be meeting them face to face. Discovering if I'll have another son to equal out the team or another little girl. I am doing my best to soak it up while I can, and often find when I have a nice hot cup of @earthmamaorganics Third Trimester Tea in hand I realize just how fast time is flying. #thefinalbernhardt #mamasbumpsquad

You win some you lose some. I lost when it came to having the sheets dried in time for nap time. But I’m winning when it comes to naps! 
This past week I’ve been focusing on having both girls take their nap together at the same time. Well yesterday I saw both of them ready for their nap. 
Now we have to move on to bedtime routine!

This morning Jackson helped mommy make pancakes. I turned around to help Luca and he had poured the entire bowl of batter onto the griddle. I wanted to scream and laugh, but before I knew it I had managed to scoop the entire batch back into the bowl. He just kept saying, “I help you mommy! Yay! I help!” He knows the drill with our homemade pancakes and it’s one of his favorite activities. How could I be mad when he was just trying to make my life easier. • 1 C Whole Wheat Flour
• 1 C Milk
• 3 Tbs Honey
• 1 Tbs Olive Oil
• 1 Tbs Baking Powder
• 1 Egg
• Handful of Hemp Seeds

I find self portraits to be one of the absolute hardest things to do and this has got to be one of the best I have seen!  I love the lighting and the symmetry is just perfect. Though it’s not quite as perfect as that bubblegum bubble. @landoflockhart what kind of gum are you chewing because my bubbles are never that good!!!

I’ve been pouring every extra ounce of what’s left of me at the end of the day to publish my very first “book” on Amazon for printing. It is an all inclusive monthly/weekly meal planner. It includes full monthly calendars, a weekly meal plan layout, 6 recipe cards per week, and a weekly grocery list layout. It’s 260 pages or so long. It’s in review, but should be available to purchase in a few days. Thank you all for your love and support!

My 'mental health' day off yesterday was 👌 (let's be real tho, it was just a few hours!😆) With kids, and activities, and a traveling husband, my biz, keeping up with workouts, and trying not to eat an entire container of the soft, bite-sized brownies from @target 's bakery for dinner 🤦🤦🤦.... My head gets a little messy. Sure I like pretty pictures on my IG feed like anyone else, but that is not usually real life. I want to own that, instead of ignore it. And sometimes your girl just has to check out and reset. I have learned this about myself.... That is my BEST practice for not falling too far off course. In health. In relationships. In business. In life. To just turn it ALL off for a while and allow myself to come back to center. The laundry, the dishes, the emails, the rest of the items on the to-do list... They're all still there today. The house did not implode. The kids are still happy. And most importantly, I feel better. Life shouldn't overhwlem you all the time. Recognize the overwhelm, and check out for a bit! It'll all be ok, Mama! Go ahead, enjoy that book or TV show. Have that indulgent meal. Enjoy that time to do nothing. And do it without the Mom guilt that often tries to tag along. Just know that you can't live there. You HAVE to come back up for air, and start anew. Ok?❤️❤️

Holy sweat balls! MMA Power is DONE! Even my abs are covered is sweat. I am definitely seeing more results in my core which is my problem area (who's isn't?) and I'm excited to see that all the sweat and hard work is paying off!

I love words and I think I’ve narrowed it down. My favourite word is.... WONDER. Children are naturally filled with it, taking in the beautiful world around them with wide eyes and eager hearts. “Wonder” has become personified to me... she has wild strawberry curls and freckles speckle her nose. She dances in the wind and she changes everything... an everyday experience becomes magical with her by your side.

Do you have a favourite word?

I’m tired. I’ve been averaging about 3 hours of sleep a night. It’s safe to say that I’m in the midst of sleep deprivation. I know this because I have zero motivation to do all of the things that I love. My nutrition has suffered and I’m snacking more, I haven’t practiced yoga in weeks (and you know how much yoga means to me), and I’m struggling to find motivation to much else than change diapers and breathe. I want to feel the healthy vibrancy again. This is my turning point. This is my wake up call to care for myself.

I’m tired. I’ve been averaging about 3 hours of sleep a night. It’s safe to say that I’m in the midst of sleep deprivation. I know this because I have zero motivation to do all of the things that I love. My nutrition has suffered and I’m snacking more, I haven’t practiced yoga in weeks (and you know how much yoga means to me), and I’m struggling to find motivation to much else than change diapers and breathe. I want to feel the healthy vibrancy again. This is my turning point. This is my wake up call to care for myself.

sometimes I take for granted how beautiful this city is and everything it has to offer. we are always talking about how amazing it would be to start a new life somewhere else, for Jude to have different experiences than we did, and to be more in touch with nature. but then it’s pictures like these, and moments like this, that remind me that I’m proud to be from Chicago. and I’ll be proud to raise my son here. #sweethomechicago

It’s week one for a new batch of my #VirtualGymGirls. Their intentions have been set. Their goals have been laid out. And their plans have been scribbled down. And they’re all showing up… for themselves ❤️.
.
It got me thinking about whether I’ve been showing up in every way I’ve promised. And nope, I haven’t. In July, I vowed to become an early riser. I told the world—well, Instagram—that I’d get my butt moving at 5:30 am most days.
.
I wanted to start my days off right. 
I wanted to get back an hour that was just for me. 
I wanted to ensure my workouts happened before the craziness of the day took over. 
I wanted to feel ENERGIZED, ACCOMPLISHED, STRONG and HAPPY all day long.
.
But did it happen? Well, maybe like 4 times.
.
Why will we bend over backwards to keep our word to everyone else, yet continually break the promises we make to ourselves? I don't want to make those promises lightly. Because before you know it, I’ll get a little too comfortable with giving up, throwing in the towel and letting myself down. I know better. So, when am I going to start doing better?
.
Well, tomorrow.
.
Listen, it’s not going to be pretty or perfect (at 5:30 am, it’s DEFINITELY NOT going to be pretty 😳 haha) At first, it’s going to be hard (in fact, I’m half-changing my mind as I type this… 🤷🏻‍♀️ just being real!!!). It’s going to be messy, and I’ll probably screw up a time or two. But, in time, hopefully it’ll become a habit, hopefully I’ll reap all the benefits I know are waiting for me, hopefully it’ll all be worth it.
.
Wish me luck!!! 🤞🏼 And if you wanna JOIN ME, let me know… seriously. We can get some serious morning accountability happening up in here… I may need it.

Motherhood—-it’s such a beautiful gift and it’s so sanctifying!
.
Nothing has shown me how much grace and surrender I need in my life quite like motherhood.
.
This sweet girl is so full of joy and has the biggest servant heart. I hope she never loses her enthusiasm for helping others (and doing chores😉). But truly, she really does remind me of what’s most important and where my focus needs to be.
.
She drives me to be more carefree and intentional and I’m so thankful for her little joyful, tender heart.
.
What is something you are thankful for today? It’s amazing what a little gratitude will do for your heart and perspective. Never stop counting your blessings—a little gratitude goes a long way! ♥️♥️♥️ #shetakesstrides #delightintherace

And just like that, I’m processing what it means to be a mama and an entrepreneur all over again. After having a conversation earlier today with a woman who seemed like a much younger version of myself before babies, I wanted to take her under my wing. Mother her a bit. And tell her that she too would give up much one day in order to love her babies and give them the life they need. ✨♥️✨
.
A once driven journalist becomes a stay at home mama with entrepreneurial dream who also applies at Starbucks to make ends meet in the meantime. A woman who wrote K-12 curriculum with her masters becomes the woman responsible for all the laundry on her kitchen table. 🙈
.
And, yes, it is hard. And no, I don’t do it with grace every day. But, always, I would make this choice. Transform with motherhood into someone new. Learn to recognize her all over again. ♥️

Dining in style with their @everydaybaby_official shatterproof glass sippy cups (and no clothes, because toddler sass 🤣)
.
.
Completely unrelated (well kinda related bc lunch 🤷🏻‍♀️) I’ve just packed the boys first ever packed lunch to bring to nursery tomorrow and realised that it’s super boring and I have no idea what I’m doing 😅 Hunter dislikes sandwiches, wraps.. basically anything that’s carbs and not toasted he won’t eat. I’m stumped! What are some fun packed lunch ideas your littles love?

Mama Said I’m a handful!! Swipe for proof ➡️ But a ridiculously cute handful 😆

Working with small companies is the absolute best!! Not only is the quality on point but getting to know the story behind the products means so much to me 🧡 @the_simple_folk was started as a way for a mama to stay at home while fostering and finalizing the adoption of their forth child. They now are providing necessities to foster children and families in need. We’re definitely going to be adding to our @the_simple_folk collection 🧡
