Let’s be honest, I’ve tried to REALLY read this book Kaylani chose at a thrift store, about 5 times. I’m not even close to finishing any time soon😳 I really enjoy reading but it’s so near impossible these days! 
______________
On another note, notice Kaylani’s undies? She’s being potty trained🙊 keep a look out for my blog post on it, coming soon☺️ ______________
Ok, on ONE LAST other note, go to @bythebabes for super cute bows (or piggies) like the ones kaylani is rocking. Use code bowsyanitza15 for a percentage off! 🎀

Walking into the Thanksgiving holidays like...I’m still not feeling well 🤕 and this weather is too beautiful to be stuck inside!

Fall or winter? I think the weather is confused 🤪 oddly beautiful nonetheless.

with the holidays suddenly right around the corner, i thought it was the perfect time to share how i survive a day of travel with these two goons. 👩‍👧‍👦🛫 (head over to my stories) .
.
i remember thinking it was SO HARD flying alone with one... and when i finally found the courage to fly with BOTH of them 💪, it took me (more than) a few trips to finally just accept that EVERYONE will be looking 👀 at me with either frustration 😤, disgust 🤮, or pity 😬. .
.
so if you have toddlers, and upcoming travel plans, i wish you good luck, and god's speed. 👊🙏
.
...and to the mom, in the middle of security, getting ALL the looks, and doing it ALL by herself, I 👏 SALUTE 🏆 YOU 🍷. .

Woke up to 62 degree weather this morning (the coolest it’s been all season down here), so my little pumpkin and I enjoyed some time outside together while we waited for big brother to wake up! 🖤 Enjoying the last of our pumpkins before we pull out Christmas decorations this week!! (Also, this outfit is killing me. pom bonnets and deep blue knits on her forever and ever.) #ourabbyrose #7monthsold #timeisathief #babiesdontkeep.

Nie wiem, dlaczego Moje dziecko nie chce jeść kaszek, są całkiem spoko!😬🤪

Sharing this favorite for #fbf 💗
Today, this sweet daughter of mine had almost finished building a tower out of her magnetic blocks when it fell. She started to cry, so I told her: You know what? We can look at this two ways. We can be sad that our tower fell. Or, we can see it as a challenge to try to build it again in a way it will stay. She seemed satisfied and was proud to show me how she rebuilt it. These words are an important reminder for myself. When we feel like we are failing at something it is easy to give up... to be sad... to believe that we can’t do it. But, we can also choose to see it as a challenge and let it motivate us to try a different route! 
So if you are feeling down today or feeling like you could fail, I challenge you to keep pushing! Find another route if you need to, but don’t give up!

If you zoom 🧐 into Rori then you’ll see that she’s throwing a fit and trying to take off her @ugg boots because she wants to run around barefoot 👣. Got me feeling like 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️😫.

Do you ever feel like you’re super hard on your spouse then the second they leave you’re like wow I’m married to the best person ever? We now have 2 wild boys and 3 crawling babies in our household and saying our hands are full is an understatement. We’ve been snapping at each other lately and today I had to remind myself how lucky I am to have this man. A man that deals with mentally ill and dangerous people all day at work, comes home to cook and clean and plays with 5 kids then rushes to serve our community when his Fire Pager goes off. All while fighting a health condition (I’ll share on that another time). My husband is pretty much a badass and today I am feeling extra blessed to have him ✨

She acts like a responsible adult 100% of the time and I generally just expect her to always do the right thing. Sometimes I forget that she’s 8..but then she comes down the stairs wearing cat ears, a turkey trot t-shirt, a skirt and running shoes and I am quickly reminded that my baby is still a baby 💕

I think I’ve aged 20 years these past 7 months with the most worry but also the most joy possible...& so much of the time I don’t know how to sum up motherhood/my current thoughts and feelings in a caption bc it’s so often overwhelmingly overwhelming ...so here is me in faux jacket I really really dig and my fave yoga leggings which I didn’t do yoga in 🤟🏼

The Harbor Half Marathon weekend is here, and I’m loving all the anchors and mermaids everywhere! Who wouldn’t want a mermaid finisher medal?! Managed to sneak out of the expo only spending money on a donation raffle basket, so I call that an extra win! I was also quickly reminded how much colder it is at the waterfront, and will be adjusting my race day layers for sure! #norfolkharborhalf #halfmarathon #jandaracing #fitmom

This one. 18 months and just so funny and sweet I could die. Taking her on coffee dates and treasuring our time together like I dreamed of since I first read “it’s a girl!” 💘

My feed is overloaded with bump pix at the moment but hopefully I only have a two weeks left and it will be newborn overload! 
Note to mums to be - it’s so frustrating when people try give you baby advice, but 99% I’m sure that people are trying to be helpful and mean well! 
Also how do people feel about people wanting to hold there newborn? 
It makes me really anxious when they are brand new, I think as a new mum and all your hormones you shouldn’t get worked up and just be honest with people about how you are feeling, if you don’t feel ready for visitors speak up, if you feel uncomfortable with someone holding your newborn, say it! 
The newborn stage is such a precious time and it honestly goes the fastest, you need to put you and your bond with the baby first and just do what makes you feel most relaxed 🙌🏼 #pregnant #bump - #Reposted From 📷 @almostmrsgray .

Am I allowed to say that most days I’m at odds with this baby?
.
I refuse to call her “the difficult one” because that’s a second-child stereotype I will NOT give power to, but I do have to admit that this go-around has been tougher on me and I can’t read what this girl wants nearly as well as I could with her older sister.
.
I’m just lost. Like REALLY lost. I’m constantly frustrated at HER frustration. And her and I have just been a mess this week especially. Physically AND emotionally. I’m talking: pajamas all day everyday, matching greasy hair, gross crusty faces, and A LOT of fussing and crying. And I’m referring to myself here, too!
.
With so much struggle going on in this house, I’ve been having to fight that voice in my head that says I’m failing. I’m not doing right by her. I’m an unfit mom. Of course I know in my head this is a whole bunch of lies. But it doesn’t mean my heart doesn’t still hurt because of how much I wish I could just be better than this. More put together. More patient. More full of joy. Today my husband said that he was sad to see me looking so “frayed” and I thought to myself what an accurate description. I’m pretty sad about it, too.
.
I’m sad that this is the season I’m in. And I’m sharing these things because somebody’s got to say it. Being a mom is HARD. Especially when you’re having trouble enjoying your baby. And I am one of those moms who is having trouble enjoying her baby. I know my future self would slap myself for saying this, but sometimes I sure do wish she’d just grow up.
.
For now, this is where we’re at and this is what we have to work with. I know it’ll get better. It HAS gotten better. And for that I do give all the praise and thanks to God.
.
I hope you enjoy this pretty photo of her and I because you ain’t getting one of us in our current state. Trust me, NO ONE wants to see our greasy, crusty faces right now. But at least I’m willing to share with you my heart. ❤️

From announcing to staff at Walmart or to random firefighters: “Everyone, I’m a tina! (Can’t say her full name yet) And this is mommy, ivy...” and any other object you feel deserves an intro especially food, to being fearless and tackling every apparatus made, to being so full of life and compassion that it makes my heart hurt. Valentina Rose, you gave this restless heart a calling and a purpose. We love you so very much! #happybirthday little love! No, you can’t put more eyeshadow on, and no you can’t paint Ivy’s face with mommy’s good makeup brushes...but we can decorate cupcakes tonight at your party. 🎂#TGIF

Valentina Rose, you gave this restless heart a calling and a purpose. We love you so very much! #happybirthday little love! No, you can’t put more eyeshadow on, and no you can’t paint Ivy’s face with mommy’s good makeup brushes...but we can decorate cupcakes tonight at your party. 🎂#TGIF

Bit of a different one but we went out!! baby free!! for the first time in 6 months!!
As it’s Jay’s Birthday today, we celebrated by going Go Karting 🥳 I had no idea what to expect but It was such a fun day 🥰
My fastest lap was 32 seconds & Jay’s was 28... 🏎
Even though I was incredibly worried about leaving Theo for the first time, it was so nice just to have some time to ourselves 💗

COUPON CODE ALERT🎉 Use SAGE25LOGANS for 25% off of Sage Spoonfuls ☺️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We have been using these for a few weeks now and have such good things to say about them. First, they’re tough— which is extremely important when you have a toddler that thinks that the proper way to proclaim she is finished with her meal is to toss her dinnerware into the floor. Shock. Resistant. Can I get an amen?! Second, they are so versatile! My two older children are in the “helping mom bake” phase and these tubs are perfect for kid-size banana or pumpkin bread because they are *OVEN SAFE*! They are perfect for any stage really. From baby food to baking to storing your homemade play dough..These definitely fit the bill! #sagespoonfuls

Who ate my week? So much for talking about my weight and someone eats my days??!
This weekend I need to create a dwarf’s hat for Clementine. A red hat. So if you want to give me some ideas, I’d appreciate it. Have a great weekend!

John 4:4-26 is powerful...seriously read it if you can. 💧

I love so much about Jesus, but I’ve always been drawn to this story of when he broke all the rules of society to engage in a deeply spiritual conversation with a “disreputable” non-Jewish woman by the well. As they speak about actual water, Jesus senses her deep longings and offers her “living water.” Through revealing himself to her in a way only himself as the Messiah could, she comes to see Jesus as the one sent by God and hurries with her water jar to tell her community the good news. FREEDOM began for her, that day. #shebelieved #justjesus

Did you know that this story from the Bible is actually what  brought me to name my coaching business “The Well Woman?” You might have thought it simply represented “wellness for women” but it truly is, so much deeper. I’m excited to share with everyone in a few weeks what is coming in 2019! ❤️

Growing up and being the youngest of eight brothers, I thought I was only going to birth boys. But now, two girls later and I can’t imagine it any other way. They have brought out such a girly side of me that I didn’t know I had! Now I think to myself, if I ever have another child.. I would secretly be rooting for a another girl! 😅😂

🌈Building skills for a 5- 6 months young baby🌈
.

#Advik🅰️ is 5 months young now and it’s good to see him developing positively. (Touchwood)
🎯
Infants will learn things on their own, no matter u teach them or not..but it will certainly take time. My friend for example calls up to say that her 8 months young daughter doesn’t sit at all. I first of all calmed her down, saying it’s ok.
🎯
U cannot compare kids, actually u shouldn’t! Just because 🅰️ started sitting at 4.5 months, doesn’t mean she should feel low for her daughter. Parents usually are seen comparing their kids to others. That’s the worst thing u can do. Seriously, what you can do is just help him achieve his milestones.
🎯
The first mantra that I learnt is u should give ample of tummy time to your baby. Parents who skip this , see a delay in their babies achieving their milestones.
🎯

A🅰️ has now started reaching out for the things he feels interesting.
✅To help him I give him a variety of objects to reach for.
✅Offer toys that fit in one hand as well as bigger objects that require a two-handed grip.
✅Also, I look for objects of different shapes -Picking up a ball, for instance, requires different skills than grasping a cube.
✅I usually place both still and moving objects within his reach and sometimes at his side too so he must understand that he can turn his body to grasp them.

You know I love flowers 🌼 It’s been awhile since I included them into photos. I think I made this photo a few weeks ago. I have like this list of drafts that I have and some photos were made a couple months ago and a lot were planned MONTHS in advance. I will post them eventually; like the rest of those Halloween themed photos 😝
