Hunter is the kind of baby that makes you think you want to have a thousand more babies 💚 • Prayers and good thoughts for this little man would be greatly appreciated 💖 • And it’s nothing major he is a-okay ❤️
Joy is the smile on your face and the swell in your heart that results when your generosity makes someone else feel enormously loved. She found the special hidden jingle bell and won the privilege of putting the angel on the tree, but gifted that honor to her baby brother because he has never found the bell and wanted so badly to be able put that angel on.
It might be rainy but that doesn’t mean you can’t play outside 🤷🏻♀️ And you definitely don’t need to be a child to splash in puddles 😊 I can’t help but love a rainy day 😍😍 also shoutout to my baby bro who was wearing flip flops when he took this @gabe.zolot
This time last week I was settling in after a weekend with my family. I so rarely get to spend time with my brother, and it was so much fun. Y'all, my mom and I barely even fought, AND I only managed to argue once with my in-laws. I miss my family and wish we spent more time together. _ For what it's worth, i'm pretty sure my brother and I care so much about our fitness because our parents stopped. I'm not sure it was EVER a priority for my mom and once my dad's Parkinson's took over he for sure stopped anything that could help. _ All of this is to say that your health is a gift and YOU are the one responsible for it. Now, let the comments about how cute my BABY BROTHER is and how his arms are so big commence. He's still 5 in my mind.
In 2013 I gave birth to a tiny human who I never thought I could love as much as I do. In 2017 I gave birth to a little energetic soul in which I didn’t think I could love enough due to having already one child- I was wrong. Now, 2018 and I love them more and more each day. Mavin, our first born who loves Pokémon just as much as her moms did growing up. But more. Our strong girl who allows her brother to smack her and yell at her; yet she remains patient and doesn’t get hostile. She has the world at her fingertips and seeing her Grow and accomplish things we weren’t ready for, is breathtaking. You are what we call, beautiful. Echo, our little small child. Our bully of a son who’s smacks Mavin and tries to upsize her, yet he will smoke and laugh because he knows she loves him. The boy who made twi soft momma- into dancing and roughhousing parents we didn’t think we could be. The only boy in our life. And the only man who we love. You are the definition of, laughter. You two are what gave us patience. You taught us how hard it is to not breakdown and cry when you two are crying at 3am. And you guys taught us how to love unconditionally. You both carry a piece of me and your mom, not now but forever. You two will only have each other’s back 110% more than any friend will. You will understand no friend will hold you like your brother/sister. #love#siblinglove#bigsister#littlebrother#family#familia#alwaysandforever#loveeays#loveinallways#kisses#thanksgiving#babybrotherlove#ilovemykidd#babieslfinstagram#loveyou#forever
"Working mothers get backlash from in-laws or parents who can't understand our desire to work, while stay-at-home moms slam us for being away from our children. I'll bet stay-at-home moms feel similarly judged by working women who can't relate to their life choices. It's as though we're all children on a playground trying to say whatever others want to hear, trying to hide all the parts that others might not understand. It makes me wonder how many women are walking around living in half their personality and in doing so, denying who their Creator made them to be. Have you spent a lifetime muting yourself for fear of what others will think? Girl. I believe that you are not a mistake - and feeling guilty about who you are (working, staying at home, overweight, underweight, over-educated, uneducated, emotional, bookish, street-smart, or whatever) does a disservice to yourself and the Creator who made you." ~Rachel Hollis~ I freaking LOVE this chapter in Rachel's book. It speaks so deeply to my soul and to what I've been fighting the past 3 years. Not everyone that knows me supports my choice to be a Coach. I get varying degrees of backlash and underhanded comments surrounding what I do. BUT I persist anyway because I love what I do and I know I'm making a difference. In other women's health. In their family's lives. In my own life. In the health of my family. In my family's finances. I was given a dream and a direction which I'm choosing to acknowledge and work at. And it's okay that not everyone understands....because it's not THEIR path, it's mine. God gave it to me. I've seen His hand in my life over and over. I fight self doubt and I also fight doubt put on me by others, even if they mean well. But I refuse to stop just because of someone else. I refuse to play small just because it makes someone else feel uncomfortable. Mama, don't mute yourself! You are amazing JUST as God made you and you should pursue the dreams He gives you. Play big.
