I posted a five month pic the other day, but I really wasn't a fan. They're getting harder and harder to take the more mobile this kid becomes. Anytime he sees these blocks, he gets so excited! It has been a wonderful sleep-deprived few months of baby snuggles and love. I am amazed at the perfection, beauty, intelligence, and joy of this kid. I am so in love. . . . #daxtonscottappell #magicofmotherhood #magicofchildhood #uniteinmotherhood #momsunite #momstrong #momstruggles #momsofig #momsofinstagram #cameramama #momtogs #mommasboy #momblogger #momlife #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #motherhoodsimplified #smallshoplove #etsyshop #ageblocks #honestlyparents #honestmotherhood

Nothing so fun as pillows on a couch that's just the right height for an adventurous baby girl! #mostlyalice
I posted this almost exactly a year ago, and it's as true today as it was then...only, I have both hands free a little more often now (but not for much longer)! Any other moms out there know what it's like to be one-handed (as in, your baby wants to be held ALL the time...)? πŸ€— . Life is SO good with these two. But lately it's been so overwhelming at the same time. Some days it's just tears and tantrums and timeouts and teething all day long, and trying to do everything + serving 3 meals a day with only one hand, while my toddler attempts to "help" (bless his heart). It's all I can do to hang in there until bedtime, when Daddy finally comes home exhausted after working 12 hours. Then after the kids are in bed, there's the heaps of dishes and laundry waiting for us that even my best one-handed efforts can't always keep up with. I'm learning to accept that this is our reality, that we're making the best of it, and not let the stress and exhaustion take away from all the sweet, joyful moments. Because really, it's so worth it, and I never want to lose sight of that, no matter how desperate I am to sleep-in or go somewhere, anywhere without two tots in tow. It's not going to last forever--a reason to both savor it and have hope. One day I'll sleep and shop alone again, but I know I'll miss this. Just them and me, together all day long. And that's why I needed to write what's in my heart today, because one day I'll see this picture and wish I could go back. In the meantime, I'm writing this one-handed and trying to enjoy each and every interruption. πŸ‘
We never want to leave πŸŒŠβ˜€οΈ
Favorite spring activity.. catching ladybugs! 🐞 #stellabellagrace #ruthdanielle #ruthandstella
Home safe and sound. I'm glad I get the job of feeding this babe because otherwise these two wouldn't need me for anything! The sweetest father daughter bond Ive ever seen. I love them both so much harder than I thought I ever could.
9. M O N T H S. .. & still going strong.. we have dropped a couple of feeds in lieu of food but boob is still her fav & I can't see her giving it up anytime soon.. so funny as I said I would wearn her at 6 months.. all this shit you talk until you get to that point πŸ˜† she is cutting her first tooth now tho so it will be interesting to see if she behaves as this mumma won't tolerate no biting!! #wanttokeepmynipplesthanks πŸ˜‚ #averiemmersynyoung #9months #breastfed #fedisbest #freethenipple #normalizebreastfeeding #breastfeedingwithoutfear #breastisbest

Today I got a glimpse of myself as I walked past a mirror in our house. Black leggings that I slept in, yesterday's black tee, unbrushed hair and bare face. I had a baby on my hip and was picking up the trail of stuff my toddler had left behind him while calling out to my 4 year old. I looked at myself in that mirror and wondered if this is what people see when they look at me. This mess of a mom trying to run in 3 different directions and praying to God I'm doing something right. The truth is, my life is so far from perfect, and definitely NOT glamorous. 3 kids is a game changer, and it's amazing and hard all at the same time. But the good kind of hard... that stretches you and grows you. Julisabel interrupted my thoughts as she came down the hallway and stopped in front of me. She looked at me and gasped and said "mommy, you look beaaaaaautiful!" And suddenly, i was reminded that it's much more important what my kids see when they look at me, then that darn judgemental mirror. So I think I'll stand a little taller, and rock these leggings and messy hair. ❀️

Real life right here. πŸ‘†πŸΌ Emilia had a touch of a cold for the past few days, but now that she's back to her playful, spritely self I've seemed to have caught what she had. πŸ€’ So here's a grainy snapshot of what my day has looked like thus far. I've been in bed practically all day, and not just because I wanted to snuggle this squishy girl all day like you might have perceived from my last post. But instead, because my head feels like a volcano right now. 🀧 Tissues have been my best friend these last few hours, and now every last one of them is strewn across my bed. At least it's keeping her entertained. . .

Ours lives are a grand mountain of what seems like one we are ever climbing. There are stationary moments where we look around and see the concreteness and then the theoretical version. Wear your rose colored glasses but with the brass and tacks in place. All the beautiful moments in your life are real and all the rainy days will be filled with sunshine once again. Take it all in❀️ . . . . . #sunny #isitsummeryet #childhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #letthekids #letthembelittle #livinglifesmoments #lifeunscripted #littleandbrave #littlefierceones #simplychildren #simpleliving #our_everyday_moments #onedayatatime #dailyparenting #darlingmovement #wildflowers #wildandfreechildren #thehappynow #thepursuitofjoyproject #nothingisordinary #uniteinmotherhood #momsoninstagram #honestmotherhood #farmgirl #upstate #nykids #upstatenewyork #upstateny #thousandislands

@tinyrainkids has arrived @heylittle_store - check it before it's gone! How cute are those check shorts?! 😍
This is what dinner looks like when you've been dealing with sick babies all day.... πŸ˜‚ - A shirt covered in spit up, spilled milk, dirt and snot... and Shakeology for dinner. (Twice in one day is happening quite frequently these days πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) - I have to say, these shakes give me the energy I need to make it through the tough days and fill me up so I'm not over snacking all day (since we all know you barely have time to actually sit down and eat a meal when the babes are whiney) - Another benefit? Mom brain makes me forget EVERYTHING these days, so you can just throw the idea of taking my "I'm getting old" vitamins out the window. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Luckily, this replaces all of those so it's one less thing to worry about! πŸ’ͺ - I had such good feedback on giving away a *FREE* year long membership with the purchase of Shakeology that I decided to open up 3 more spots. Comment below or send me a message to grab these spots before the end of the week! They will go fast and you don't want to miss this opportunity!❀❀
Rainy days: Why are rainy days so special to me? Cause I cannot get one thing done. Meaning we all get to turn the couch into a giant bed, snuggle up with endless movies, bottles of almond milk, bags of veggie chips and turn on the heater. Since becoming a mum of 2, I've realised I have less time to spend snuggling my first born, less time to smother him in kisses, less time to play games and less time to sleep next to him. So rainy days provide me all the time I need to smoother the crap outta him. He spends the day telling me "no more kisses mum!" Like in some uncool adults he dosnt wanna be seen with 😜 . . . . . #momlife #bloggingmum #mumblogger #littleandbrave #instababy #uniteinmotherhood #doonco #beauty #candidchildhood #momwithcameras #simplychildren #facemask #bump #clay #momof2 #motherhood #newborn #breastfeeding #beach #bikini #coffee #tea #friends #family #plantbased #organic #baby #fitness #weightloss

~ T H E P A C I F I E R ~ If only she actually knew how to use the darn thing! I guess in a way I'm happy she doesn't use it. But in another way, I think my life would've be been that much easier if she did. Then maybe I wouldn't have been used as a human pacifier... Most of the day... NOTE TO SELF: If and when I decide to have a second child, please use a pacifier 😊
I'm so thankful that this guy is on paternity leave πŸ™ŒπŸΌ It's made the transition from 1 baby to 2 so much easier. Ellana is enjoying the extra attention and Mira loves the cozy place to nap 😊
How cute is this little babe 😍 keeping warm wearing our Cub Beanie ✨ thankyou for sharing @mytribe_myvibe ❀️
Stuffed full of pizza and lemonade and frozen ice and couldn't be happier. My how I love my little crew. 🌸🌸🌸 #gabrielleelisegrace #michaeljamesgrace
"After almost a year of classes, home studies and paper work we were finally certified to be a foster family. β € She was 7 days old and 4lb 4oz. She was perfect and we were immediately in love. β € The nurses called her Gracie while we waited for her to be named. Brian said he thought she looked like a Savannah. β € Because she was having trouble feeding and other medical needs she was moved to a new hospital. β € I was able to visit with her everyday. β € I would hold her and we'd listen to lullabies together. Those times were some of the most precious moments I've ever had. β € After a slow and steady weight gain she was finally able to come home. β € I was overwhelmed with emotions. I was shocked by how easily I loved her as if I had birthed her myself. β € The first time I met her birth mom I was so desperate for her to feel my love. I wanted her to know I was on her team and that her baby was safe. β € She was a sweet girl with lots of struggles. She just didn't feel like she could take care of baby girl. My heart was broken for her. β € Baby girl's birth mom was not able to name her and so her social worker would. β € The name they decided was Savannah Grace! I was speechless. Brian had named her! I should have known then this was a sign she would be ours. β € Birth mom didn't come to court and her lawyer told the judge that she definitely wanted to put Savannah up for adoption. β € I was shocked when our social worker pulled us aside and asked if we would consider adoption. β € We spent the next few weeks praying hard. I was scared and overwhelmed. Could I handle 6 kids? Slowly my fear moved to the side and I wanted her more then words could express. β € It was a Wednesday morning when I got a text from the social worker. Can you meet today at 2.30pm? Ummm yes! β € The next step would be making her officially ours. I felt like I was in shock, in a dream. β € Exactly ten months after she was born into the complete opposite situation that any child should be born into, she legally became our number six. β € It is true that we "rescued" her, but it's even more true that she rescued us. β € She brings our family together in the most beautiful way. She is a gift, every child is a gift."

A year ago today my sweet girl you finally got to come home πŸ’• #hometime
Today was one of those days where it took us literally 5 hours to leave the house. Nora has been nursing about every 45 minutes for a month and a half😧 which means after each feed I have like 20 minutes to get stuff done but not even because she's also going through this phase where she has to be able to see me/touch me or a meltdown ensues.... And I thought nursing every 2-3 hours when she was a newborn was challenging haha πŸ˜‚ Breastfeeding can be so so hard some days. But when she looks at me with a full belly and smiles, it makes it all worth while. But please tell me these feeding frenzies are just a phase and that I will survive🀞🏻
A little gettin' real, a little la vie en rose on ze bloggy today, because April, you did a number on us, but next week.... #itsgonnabemay πŸŒΈπŸ’•πŸ’ƒπŸ»

Because life's not all cupcakes and rainbows. We almost had her with the cow wagon thing... almost.
"Adoption is beautiful, but not perfect. As we navigate each age there are awesome days and there are dark days. She hurts, I hurt. I love Chloe with every ounce of my heart. We struggle, she still has pain and questions. Some days I'm great at being her mom, other days are hard and I fail. β € β € Grace seeps in and we grow." β € Today on the blog we're continuing our conversation with @ujfam about her adoption journey. Read Part 2 at the link in profile! β € Have questions or thoughts for Sandy? Reach out and let us know what you're thinking! ❀️ #adoptalovestory

Our children have loved seeing all of the geese and ducks we've come across at some of the different rv parks. πŸ¦† Watching these goslings grow over the last month though? That has probably been their favorite! 🌳 #GetOutsideAndPlay #HomeschoolInRealLife
