He’s on the move and there’s no slowing him down now. He scoots the same way Jude used to, with one leg underneath ๐Ÿ˜‚. It’s the cutest thing guys... and he’s so proud of himself .. I mean just look at that grin. โฃ โฃ Want to know what I love most about the retractable binky clip we received this week from @littlebaebaeboutique ? It keeps his pacifier close but out of his way ๐Ÿ™Œ. Every other one we’ve used lately gets caught up underneath him while he’s moving. โฃWhen did your littles start crawling? .โฃ .โฃ .โฃ .โฃ .โฃ .โฃ .โฃ .โฃ #documentyourdays #embracingtheeveryday #dearphotographer #dearestviewfinder #honestmotherhood #babiesofinstagram #our_everyday_moments #motherhoodinspired  #documentyourmemories_ #clickinmoms #momtogs #momswithcameras #ministryofmagic #joyfulmamas #thebloomforum #wildandbravelittles โฃ

I was one of six kids and my parents were and are very hard workers, both with full time jobs. I grew up knowing I could count on them to always work for us, and they did. I learned how to work from them; and I have worked as long as I can remember. Opening your piggy bank to pay the family’s electricity bill as a tween kind of sticks with you. I earned money to pay for my ballet clothes and shoes at age 12 (I was on scholarship so my lessons were taken care of), opened a Christian dance studio when I was 15 and used what I earned to save up for a car and college. When I went to college at age 20 I opened a second studio and continued teaching until we moved to TN to grad school. (Hashtag once an entrepreneur always an entrepreneur). It was super normal for me to work and I’m grateful for my parent’s example in this. Not boasting just saying. Will work for money, am I right? ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ Fast forward 14 years of marriage, 4 sunny kids, and a mystery illness that nearly took my life. God was kind, and He delivered me. When the answers finally came we were $15k in debt due to all the specialists (who didn’t take insurance) plus the two surgeries that saved my life (deemed not medically necessary even though the specimens had to be sent off for biopsy ๐Ÿ˜ฌ). We were thankful, but that’s a TON of money. Especially if you have zero financial margin. So I looked for a job. We felt like if I could even bring in a few hundred a month to put towards the debt, that would be something. And I found jobs. But I still had two babies at home. So when you factor in babysitting, there was nearly nothing left of a paycheck. So that wasn’t going to work.  So I found what I do now that allows me to work from home. And although people told me that I was 1) crazy and that 2) they were embarrassed for me, it was literally the only door still open, so we walked through. (But only after telling God PLEASE no five or six times. ๐Ÿ˜‰) And we work hard. And God was gracious. And

last day of spring break for these two.
This may not look like much, but to me it is everything. I always thought that if I were to have children, I’d want a little boy. My little dream boy was a grubby, happy little boy who filled his pockets with rocks because he loved hunting for treasure in the great outdoors. • Before becoming a mother, I had all kinds of opinions about the way my pregnancy would be, the birth experience, and the type of mother I’d be. Very little, if any, of that went according to my plan for at least the first 18 months of my son’s life. But you know what? I have a happy, grubby little boy who fills his pockets with rocks (or pinecones or whatever he finds that day) because he loves the outdoors and hunting for treasure. He came inside tonight with flushed cheeks, a smile from ear to ear, and bulging pockets. He happily dumped handfuls of pebbles onto the floor so he could show me what he’d found. • My heart has never been so full. #lucienfulloflight

Gosh I think it’s been a good couple years I’ve been using @mustelausa now! And we still love it! And now in honor of Earth Day they have launched their new line of plant-based bath time products AND the bottles are biodegradable (making #earthdayeveryday) ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป. So cool! Makes me love them even more! This version is for sensitive skin for Crew but Jude uses the version for normal skin and Chase and Hudson use for dry skin! And that’s what I love- something for everyone! . . #joyfulmamas #letthembelittle #momcrushmonday #lovethelittlethings #ig_motherhood #mommyhood #thebloomforum #simplychildren #magicofchildhood #motherhoodrising #dailyparenting #lifecloseup #cameramama #writeyouonmyheart #mom_hub #honestmotherhood #everythingtribe #candidchildhood #momswithcameras #childofig #uniteinmotherhood #ohheymama #mytinymoments #cutekidsclub #nothingisordinary #thatsdarling #clickinmoms #momofboys #boymama

For yourself? Your children? Anyone in particular? One of my biggest motivators for staying active and healthy is my children. I refuse to be unable to participate in their play time, chase them, tickle them, play games with them because I feel out of shape. I want them to remember having a mom who would always be beside them instead of behind them, out of breath. . I still have a ways to go to meet my goals but this motivation keeps me from slipping too far backwards. . . . #womenshealth #healthymommy #stayhealthy #ihavegoals #weightlossgoals #nonscalevictory #weightlossjourney #healthandfitness #healthiswealth #healthimprovement #healthyfamily #healthiswealth #womenshealthawareness #preventionisthecure #whoswithme #supermomwannabe #fitnessandhealth #momlifebelike #momlife #parenthood #dadlife #momlifeishard #jugglingact #findyourhealthy #selfcareisimportant #crunchymom #healthymomma #crunchyfamily #familyhealth #honestmotherhood
Loved seeing everyone’s cute Easter pics yesterday. Here’s basically the best we got. She just all of a sudden decided sticking her tongue out was cute. She’s doing it in literally every single photo. — But I’m just glad they were able to capture this, moments before she picked the bunny up and threw it on the ground. My daughter, the delicate lady of the family. ๐Ÿ˜‚ #sloanpartyofthree #ourjourneyofjoy
Being this little boy's momma is a special gift ๐Ÿ’™ But I will never forget what it took to get here: time, energy, money, faith, and persistence โœจ . This week is #nationalinfertilityawarenessweek. 1 in 8 families struggle with infertility, which means it's highly likely you know someone struggling with infertility, either publicly or silently. . IVF was something I never thought we would experience. It was emotionally and physically draining, but my son is worth every moment. I have no idea if we'll need to go the IVF route again when we choose to expand our family. What I do know is finding a support system is crucial, as well as open communication with your partner. It's VERY much a team effort (my husband was the ๐Ÿ’‰administrator and was at most appointments). . I am open about our journey because I am a huge believer in community. I am thankful for the women who reached out and supported me, so I continue to pay it forward. . Sending you love ๐Ÿ’— . xoxo, Erica & Benji
Hiding her own Easter eggs, trying to climb trees, picking flowers, and running around having a good time yesterday! ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿฐ • • And...here is a very #honestmotherhood confession: I must admit I’ve been hesitant to share photos when there are aspects which do not correlate with my core values. Being as it’s Earth Day ๐ŸŒŽ, I’ve realized this is a good opportunity to explain why: first and foremost, I do not like plastic toys. I also do not like plastic or painted items made in shady factories. I strive to be mindful of the items I personally buy for my child, both in terms of toys and clothing, and want to lead a minimalist family life that allows Abbey’s own imagination to guide her. Certainly, children do need toys, but I genuinely feel burdened at times. But I am up against an external situation which deeply contrasts with the values I want to implement. • I also don’t believe that speaking up about this is a first world problem!—it is actually a world wide problem!  For all of these plastic items overload landfills, factories emanate pollution, and further still, our children’s health is at stake.  Do we even really know what these items are made from?  So as much as I would love to post this sweet set of photos without this longer caption, it comes to mind for me either way—due to that Peppa Pig temporary tattoo on her arm!  What is even in these, especially for a child this young?! Anyway, I did not put it on her, and I’ve mostly gotten it off now ••• As for the plastic Easter eggs, if you’ve seen my stories, you see why it was a good thing that we used these ones for the hunt instead ๐Ÿ˜†. However, I have hung onto these since receiving them last year, so when I do have such plastic items, I look to save and re-use. โ™ป๏ธ • Overall, does anyone else feel like their core values—either for yourself and/or your children—are compromised in this way? Let me know in comments โคต๏ธ
When my patience is wearing thin and I’m going to lose it, I need to remind myself of days like today, when at the park Olivia said “mom, I carry Reeva in my heart always” (an old classmate from last year, who’s real name is Reba) or at bedtime when I noticed dry boogies on her blanket “mom, I only do it when you’re not around!” (As if that’s supposed to bring me solace when the Kleenex box is next to her pillow ๐Ÿคจ). She’s only 4 and as much as I can’t wait for her to be just a bit more independent to make life easier, I want her to stay this little and innocent forever. Love you baby girl xoxo ๐Ÿ˜˜
I USE TO NOT WANT TO BE A STAY AT HOME MOM.  I wanted to go to work, make money, come home (exhausted) and spend time with my daughter. All because I thought it was the only way I could support her. IT’S NOT. We can stay at home and be part of something that has meaning and is changing peoples lives! Anyone that feels stuck at a job that they are not making enough money in, or wants a side hustle, or wants to stay home with their kids... there is an answer for you! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ YOU just have to make it happen. . . . #stayathomemom #grateful #blogger#smallblogger #mommydiaries #momlife #entrepreneur #bossbabe #lifestyle #lifestyleblogger #momblogger #miamiblogger #thehappynow #healthyhairrevolution #ladyboss #workfromwifi #thedarlingmovement #travelblogger #influencer #monat #liketkit #discoverunder10k #babies #mamarazzi #mommyblogger #momboss #happyeaster2019 #workfromhome #honestmotherhood #womenempowerment
If you a woman or mum who is feeling like you are needing uplifting, I would love to offer you a  free Intuitive session. If you feel shame and fear with seeking help, allow those feelings, but don’t let them stop you. I know how you feel, I felt shame and fear too. But I knew there was a better way. And I know you know that too. It is the biggest gift you will ever gift yourself. For me it was the biggest blessing of my life when I sought out support. Because not only do I now feel more me, more aligned and at peace, but I get to support women and mums in need and that to me is an honour in itself.

High five to all the mom's doing their best to do all the things ๐Ÿ™Œ I spent the majority of the day with two good friends just visiting, followed by board games, laundry, dinner, and kids bathed & ready for bed. The perfect ending to Easter break! Some days juggling all the hats is overwhelming but when we stop to enjoy the moments we realize they all add up to this beautiful life!

After spring sunshine, budding plant life, bike rides, Easter egg hunts, picnics on the porch, and a little family demo, we are not ready for this long weekend to end. Such sweet weekends together make for some pretty difficult Mondays. But as I reflect on the family-filled days we enjoyed, I’m thankful that time together is what we all crave.  Hope your week is off to a lovely start!  Anyone else already counting the sleeps ‘til the weekend?
Just tried the keto diet and I lasted three hours. Any tips on how to shed this baby weight? Bonus points if it doesn’t include eating right or exercising.

P- Just over a month ago, @_kristinecampbell, @sjed16 and I brought you your first protest, started by 16 yr old @gretathunberg. At the time, I had no idea the impact the event would have on me or the impact you would have on the world, literally. From the students whom you gave high-fives and fist pumps to in Chicago, to โ€ชwhoโ€ฌ-knows-how-many people you’ve inspired by that single photo of you, now reposted more times than I know, even by the great @annehathaway! I never expected the response to be what it was, but I trust you’ll be grateful the attention was for such a crucial cause. . What was most impactful to me, though,  is how much the experience has opened my eyes to the crisis of our climate. Our planet and your future is deteriorating before our eyes. I’m overwhelmed, I’m scared, I don’t sleep well knowing where we need to be and how far we have to go to get there. But as Greta says, there’s still hope. I’m holding on to that hope and will continue making changes, no matter how small, and doing my part in leaving this planet a better place for you and generations to come. . Come on friends, who’s with me?!โœŠ๐Ÿป๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’š#earthday#earthday2019

As mothers we have the gift of not only valuing incredible planet ourselves, but teaching our little ones about their delicate and beautiful home and how to love and protect it. They are looking to us to guide them (literally...they’re ALWAYS watching us! ๐Ÿ‘€), so know mama that every choice you make to be kind to this Earth, from getting them a reusable water bottle to planting a garden with them, will lead to their choices too. So, thank you mamas for your hard work and the wonderful example you set for them. ๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒฟ
๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒฑ Happy Earth Day! ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒŽ โ €โ € I had every intention of planting these lavender plants today. Buuut, in typical Amanda fashion it’ll be tomorrow.๐Ÿ˜‚ โ €โ € I love being outside. I’d rather do yard work than house work and I go stir crazy when I have chores to do inside on a sunny day. It’s a real bubble buster. ๐Ÿ˜ โ €โ € We’ve been slowly putting together our outdoor space so we can soak up as much outside as possible this summer and I’m so excited.  We will be completing the patio spaces soon and then my big goal for this summer is to put up a legit play area for the kids. I’m so stoked about it! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

What you see here is the end result of what I’d consider a successful unboxing by a 6 & 4 year old. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € What you also see here is Crunchi’s conscious packaging thrown around the living room floor. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 100% recyclable boxes & filling {or even reusable for Easter basket filling ๐Ÿ˜œ} โ €โ € Products packaged in sustainable materials like glass & paperboard instead of plastic. โ €โ € Products that are wrapped in paper to eliminate the need for an unnecessary carton box. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € And their continued commitment to be innovative in their packaging to help the environment. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Thank you Crunchi for all that you do not just on Earth Day, but everyday. ๐ŸŒŽ
I haven’t downloaded my easter pics yet, but  she wore this gorgeous dress from @flaxandwoolthreads to celebrate with her grandparents on Saturday. She’s pretty easy-going with clothes, but she always says how soft this dress is and loves wearing it. And it’s the perfect color for spring!!

Please please please get in the pictures with your babies. Even if your front porch is still a train wreck from Easter. You + your little humans will be immeasurably grateful one day. ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค #archeroakley #nixonrogue #romearoha
I am extremely proud of my husband @drterranceruth and his desire to move FORWARD in his running for Wake County School Board. There are so many positive qualities this man possess but the thing that I admire the most is his ability to keep things going FORWARD whether it be in his faith, marriage, fatherhood or his relationship with others. His passion is like no other and Miles and I are fortunate enough to stand alongside him everyday. I am ecstatic and I look FORWARD to walking this journey with him. Congrats babe, I love you! • • • • #drterranceruth #raleighnc #northraleigh #northhills #wcpss #wakecountyschoolboard #blackdad #educator #familyfirst #familyiseverything #thefamilynarrative #thepursuitofjoyproject #honestmotherhood #bedeeplyrooted #momlifestyle #motherhoodintheraw #motherhoodunplugged #mymamahood #unitedinmotherhood #positiveliving #positivevibesonly #selfgrowth #thinkpositive #politics #politician #politicians #ilovemyhusband #ruthforward #terranceruth4wake #ruth4wake
The sun was shinning today, which made me wish I was jumping in rivers and finding all the times that make me remember I’m happy to be alive ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Although the little people at home plus all kinds of other things make me happy. ๐Ÿคฃ But.... sunshine and river jumping, I mean. Yes please.
Sooo, selfie. My fave. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Selfie with ZERO makeup on my face. Awesome.  Why am I sharing this glory with you here on Social Media?  Well … about two years ago I went to see a dermatologist about some crazy red bumps on my face. They were all around my mouth and nose and eyes and eyelids. Eeek! The dermatologist told me that I have perioral dermatitis. He said they don’t know the cause, there is no cure and it usually effects women of “child bearing age”. Awesome. Y’all google image perioral dermatitis if you dare. It’s pretty horrifying to be told that this, what I called “monster face”, could be there forever with no hope of relief. He handed me a prescription for steroid cream and that was that.  Well I wasn’t satisfied with that. I wasn’t going to spend over $100 a pop for a steroid cream and hope that it helps. Nope. I started working on my skin. I started giving it what it needs to heal and thrive. I’m working on my gut and my body as a whole. What do you know? My perioral dermatitis is healing. It’s not perfect and there are times it flares up, but it’s healing.  Our bodies like to heal - they were created to heal. Just like one of my kiddos skinned knees, it heals up over time given what it needs. I’ve been so pleased. Rather than settling for an expensive prescription that *might* help, I’ve started a journey that is healing my whole body. What a joy to see other symptoms disappear as I have gone down this road. It’s been an unexpected blessing and I’m grateful. โค๏ธ
A little adults only fun ๐Ÿ˜ˆ.
Minka is loving her Bubs goat milk and it’s super gentle on her tummy which I am very happy about.  She is such a fussy eater so I worry she isn’t getting all the nutrients she needs!  Knowing Bubs toddler milk is full of so many beneficial ingredients like essential fatty acids, vitamins, amino acids and supplements including Omega 3, DHA, Omega 6 & Prebiotics, it definitely puts my mind at ease!  And it’s now available at Woolworths so I can easily get it on my weekly grocery shop.  #bubsbaby #bubsaustralia #bubsgoatmilk  #bubspartner #woolies #ad
I just bought my oldest new sandals since hers from last year are quite outgrown- she gave herself a blister last week when she refused to acknowledge that they were indeed too small. ๐Ÿ˜ But it’s hard to let go of your favorite shoes! I know the pain, I went from size 6 - size 8 over the course of 3 pregnancies. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผ‍โ™€๏ธ Did your feet grow in adulthood or is it just me? • Nora bows in the shop • . โœจ Engage on my posts for a chance to win - at the end of every month I’ll do a random draw from all the likes and comments and choose a winner for a $20 shop credit! โœจ . . #newbornphotography #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #babyfashion #prettysquares #babymodel #babyootd #vintagebaby  #thatsdarling #darlingmovement #babiesofig #newborn #letthekids #letthembelittle  #babybump #honestmotherhood #livethelittlethings #ohheymama #thehappynow #raisingmytribe #babiesdontkeep #momswithcameras #lucyjaneandco
