I have started writing down all my thoughts lately. I started doing this journaling, as you may call it, because I want to find my passion in writing again. I want to spark the joy and life deep inside of me that has been sleeping for some time, now. I want to awaken the side of me that motivates my every being. I want to awaken sides of myself I have yet to discover.
I know it has been life and all the drastic changes we have been through this past year; it has kept me impossibly busy and distracted. However, it has also given me light and a new path of self discovery and love. 
I have slowly built a wall from my emotions and true feelings out of fear of being hurt; being hurt more when I just can’t be hurt any longer. But I play a huge part in my own hurting when I close myself off from the world. 
This community is so wonderful and it has brought amazing people into my life. Women who empower me to speak my truth unapologetically; mothers who encourage me and listen without judgement; women and mothers who are the very essence of love and the universe! 
I feel unmeasurably blessed to have so many of you in my life! And, I’m going to be sharing that and much more from here on out. ❤️

It’s that time of year when the crisp, autumn leaves are falling from trees with every gust of wind and just wearing sweaters for warmth is not wardrobe appropriate. It’s starting to be dry and cold, reminding me winter is coming. It’s time in the season when I reflect and feel grateful for all I’ve been blessed with. And with that, I think about my loved ones and how I want to show them how special they are to me. #ad my @danielwellington watch is one of my favorite brands I have collaborated with over the past couple of years. These watches make great gifts! AND right now you can use my 15% off discount code MOTHEROFBABIES plus the holiday offer right now! That is an additional 10% off any 2 or more products, free gift wrapping and free worldwide shipping! .

Surround yourself with kind, passionate, beautiful, and intelligent souls, my darlings, because you deserve nothing but the best 🌿 / / A long weekend with good company and many adventures has my soul reenergized and motivated. Only a couple of days back home and it’s nearly the weekend again. I say, we’re doing things right.☺️ Seattle was such an amazing time! I had the opportunity to spend quality time with a beautiful friend I continue to get closer with over the last few years. I also finally met a dear friend in person after a year of closely talking on here. What a blessing! And I can’t forget seeing the hilarious @celestebarber preform Monday night! Her show had me crying I was laughing so hard. I only wish we could have met and hugged her after the show because she was amazing! This was only our second time to Seattle but each time I fall more in love with the city. Have you been to Seattle? If so, what’s your favorite part of Seattle? Happy Thursday, beautiful people!

Happy Halloween 2018 🖤🎃👻🧡 / / The scariest thing happened to me yesterday. Two things I dreaded to experience as a mother. Fitting that it would happen the night before Halloween. First, my oldest asked if his friend from school could meet up with us to trick-or-treat and slightly suggested he could just go with his friend and their family if we were going “to be too busy.”😳 Like, excuse me! You are 6! You are too young to leave me!😭 of course you are not going trick-or-treating with someone else and their family - ever!😂😂 Second, one of the most scary things I thought I had at least 10 years until I would hear was my daughter asked to be older because she doesn’t understand why she can’t have a cellphone.😳🙀🙊 And so it begins. We hope you had a safe Halloween ~ from a cute witch, sweet bunny, and cuddly lion.

All the gloomy, rainy days are warmer & brighter with you, my darlings 🍂 / / The day is colder than I wanted for all our Halloween festivities today.

I’ll keep you safe & warm, my darlings; there is nothing to fear 🍂 / / Anyone else feeling rushed today, making sure you have everything for your littles’ costumes? As well as just making sure you get out the door to school, work, and everything else on time this morning? It’s already a super busy day but I think it’s going to be fun?! Tell me, what are your big plans with your kids on Halloween? Do you have special traditions? Are you going track-or-treating in a big group? Do you do the “Witch Switch” with your kids so that they don’t eat too much candy?

You are my muse to my masterpiece and the lyrics to my life melody, my darlings 🍂 / / Happy Monday, beautiful people! Now that I’m finally feeling better after weeks of being sick with the flu, I’ve been feeling rejuvenated and motivated to start some new projects (and complete old ones, too😉). I started my account here on IG a few years ago to share a mission, help find my creative voice again, and it gave me a great excuse to obsessively take photos of my babies. Because I’m human, I have gotten distracted here and there, and let all the stuff that shouldn’t matter get to me. It has caused me to accidentally block my creative side, which weakened my individuality. I overthink a lot of what I put out there and hesitate sharing because I think, “why would anyone want to hear my random and over analyzed thoughts?”. But it is only myself stopping me from being my full potential. 
I have different sides to me, as everyone does, and on this account I have always taken more of a serious and romantic perspective from my soul. That is how I mostly am, but I’m just realizing how much in my everyday life I was shamed or taught to suppress that side of myself from a young age. It was me being “too dramatic” or “high-strung.” I feel deeply and I remember everything, but those are qualities I’m proud of not ashamed of anymore. 
However, I love to laugh and love being super raw about motherhood and all that comes with it. I have often felt conflicted on how I share things on this account, feeling awkward or even guilty if I share something more lighthearted or even just casual because my romantic side wants this forum to be a letter and “baby book,” if you will, for my precious, little souls and my future self to look at.
I want a place where I can share more of my every day life and not think too much about what I want to say every single time I post. I want to share more of “me” and who I am, but also keep a space just for my littles. So, I am going to be announcing a separate account soon that is just dedicated to my babies and where all my poems to them will be. 
This account will still include them (of course!💙💗💙) but I will start sharing more of me here.

I’m so glad I live in a world that has Octobers with YOU, my darlings, because you are the cutest little pumpkins around 🍂 / / Happy Monday, beautiful people!

Your smiles bring me life, my darlings, and without them this world would have no light 🍂 / / This phase of childhood with my littles is such a great and interesting time. Especially with my oldest starting elementary school this year, there are some new things he is taking seriously. You know, because he’s a “big boy” now and he’s at big school. For example, manners and being aware of how we treat others. This is something that’s important to our family and it’s something I have tried to instill from the start with each of them. I’ve been happy to see they are listening and executing these values lately. The other day, I was partially listening to my older two having a heated discussion while on our walk. Brother said, “Sister, don’t stare! Mom, sister is staring and that’s rude.” I nodded, distracted while pushing them in the stroller and said, “sister, please don’t stare you know it’s not nice.” Brother started getting anxious and yelled, “sister, don’t look! It’s disgusting!” This made me stop and ask what she is looking at and why he is getting so upset. Sister pointed and I started to laugh. I look at my oldest and said, “Brother, it is rude to stare but it’s social okay stare at cute babies.” He got upset, tried to cover my daughter’s eyes and said, “No, it’s not! It’s disgusting!” All I could say while holding back my giggles was, “what?!” .

I needed a boy like you, my sweet boy, forever in my life 🍂 / / Happy Monday, beautiful people! I woke up super sick this morning; however, I still managed to get both my two littles to school on time! 🙌🏼 I didn’t shower, do my makeup or take off half of my pjs, but I still consider it a win. Even though I feel awful and have no makeup on, I decided to go to Target to pick up some of the necessities (and more 🤷🏻‍♀️🙈) and two strangers told me I look beautiful today. One was a mom who owns her own yoga studio and fell in love with Baby Brother’s @_quincymae outfit he has on today. The other was the target employee ringing me out, and even said, “your hair looks so nice! Did you just get it done?” My hair looks like a frizzy mess, if you ask me! 😳 Slow it down people! You don’t need to “secret-shopper” me into buying a ton at Target. I already did it on my own. 😂 How’s your Monday going? .

To nourish you, my beautiful, darling, is to nourish my own being 🌿 / / Breastfeeding update: stay away from too much soy! This is a controversial topic in the lactation community and profession. However, I can tell you from personal experience this is 100% true! I know soy is a popular and common protein for vegan and vegetarian people, so I think this is important to keep in mind if you breastfeed. 
Last Tuesday, I went with one of my best friends to a taco shop I love around the corner from my place, and got these delicious soyrizo tacos. The next day I was craving them and wanted them again. I ate one and started to not feel well; one bite into the second one, filled with a ton of undercooked soyrizo, and I felt more sick. I do think the soy was bad, so I know that’s one thing. I didn’t get sick, just didn’t feel well the rest of the day. Seriously, the next day my supply was nearly nothing! Two days before this, on Sunday and Monday I was engorged! My son still nurses every TWO hours, if not more, still. I have successfully breastfed my older two, and my daughter went until she was nearly 3! I had never experienced this kind of dip in my supply before; not even when I’ve been sick with the flu or anything! I immediately got myself on a diet to save my supply; TO SAVE MY SUPPLY! I already drink over the recommendation amount of water for breastfeeding, so I tripled it! I drank 15-20 water bottles and peed more than I ever have (even more than I did in my pregnancies!). I made sure to eat well, eating the right** protein and fats (e.x., avocado, chicken, bone broth, almonds, oats, lactation cookies and granola bars). I nursed him like normal, but added a few more because he’ll nurse 24/7 if I let him. I babywore him majority of the day, like normal; however, I was more intentional and had him nurse every opportunity while wearing him. I did the same thing the next day and started feeling it get better, feeling more of my letdowns. By day three, my supply was back to normal! Other things I was going to try were 24-hour lay in, babywearing topless and stay home, lactation teas, pumping and stimulation, and see my lactation consultant. (CONTINUED 👇🏼)

My darlings, I hope you will always let me hold you close enough to kiss, even when I’m gray and old 🌿 / / Happy last day of International Babywearing Week, beautiful people! I babywear every day, and each and every one of my babies have been babyworn from the beginning. I don’t know how long you have been following, but I started blogging on Instagram 3 years ago to share more about babywearing. I wanted to share that there were more and better options than what was known in mass media. My husband and I wanted to make it more mainstream and normalized it more for dads, as well as focus on the safety and proper education in babywearing. We loved working with, recognizing, and sharing the small (at the time) companies that were making the best carriers, wraps and slings out there. It has all come so far, including making babywearing more mainstream for all parents, siblings, and families. Keeping your babies on you, safe and close enough to kiss is so important for their development. How we receive care and love in the beginning of our lives is so incredibly important for who we shape into as children, teenagers and adults. Also, a mama like me, who’s outnumbered would not be able to survive without these amazing parenting items! A carrier is the number one thing I say to any new parent to invest in. Trust me - it’s worth whatever money! 🧡 what’s your favorite type of carrier? .

My darlings, i hope you will always let me hold you close enough to kiss, even when i’m gray and old 🌿 / / happy last day of international babywearing week, beautiful people! i babywear every day, and each and every one of my babies have been babyworn from the beginning. i don’t know how long you have been following, but i started blogging on instagram 3 years ago to share more about babywearing. i wanted to share that there were more and better options than what was known in mass media. my husband and i wanted to make it more mainstream and normalized it more for dads, as well as focus on the safety and proper education in babywearing. we loved working with, recognizing, and sharing the small (at the time) companies that were making the best carriers, wraps and slings out there. it has all come so far, including making babywearing more mainstream for all parents, siblings, and families. keeping your babies on you, safe and close enough to kiss is so important for their development. how we receive care and love in the beginning of our lives is so incredibly important for who we shape into as children, teenagers and adults. also, a mama like me, who’s outnumbered would not be able to survive without these amazing parenting items! a carrier is the number one thing i say to any new parent to invest in. trust me - it’s worth whatever money! 🧡 what’s your favorite type of carrier? .

So much of life is overwhelming, my darlings, but you, and only you, have the power to decide how you will react to every obstacle and accomplishment 🌿 / / This week has been another emotionally challenging time for the littles and I. Just when I think, “I’ve got this!” that’s when life reminds me to be humble and to constantly be open to change. I have been disappointed in how I have decided to react to the stress of everything a few times; however, I know it’s all an opportunity to learn and grow. I need to forgive myself and move forward. I always apologize to my littles if I think I reacted too harshly, and talk things out with them on how we can all work together better. I pretty much threw a big, grown up-mommy tantrum Tuesday morning because I just couldn’t believe how we were literally 60 seconds late to school, yet AGAIN! It didn’t matter how early I got up or if I gave myself a 20, 35, or 45 minute buffer - we were still pulling up to the school literally a MINUTE past the last bell. How?! Well, we figured out a new routine, added more timers and alarms, and all is going well, so far. 🤞🏼 Between my drop-offs, pick-ups, errand runs, chores, working from home, trying* to have a social life, and trying* to shower and keep other self care routines, days are just not long enough for my sanity. At least I have been caught up on laundry this week - I did SEVEN loads last Friday! 🙌🏼 Our @teddyneedsabath laundry bags and cotton candy dryer sheets have been handy keeping all my littles’ favorite stuffed animals safe while gently cleaning them. Baby brother might have even played dress up the other day, and pretended to be like his stuffed lion, so that he too could feel the comfort of the @teddyneedsabath bag. Of course, all pretend and he was never actually washed in it.☺️ Both these little lions are perfectly clean, now, though! 🦁 Happy Thursday, beautiful people! .

You are the inspiration & muse for the earth’s autumn majestic artistry, my darlings 🍁 / / Happy October, beautiful people!! We enjoyed probably the last sunny fall day yesterday while going apple picking and got excited for all that’s to come for the next few months with holidays and whatnot! The whatnot is what we as parents must do for these precious babes of ours to enjoy these holidays. For example, stress out about buying halloween costumes NOW otherwise they are out of stock. However, they will also change their minds on what they want to be in 2 weeks 😐; how we will plan and slave to make a great Thanksgiving meal for two days, while also trying to do online Black Friday shopping; and of course, spend hours upon hours on wrapping and hiding Christmas gifts for the kids and entire family.😳😂But we all still love the holidays, right? I know I do. .
