Kinder brauchen Bewegung und warum sollte man sie dann in unbequeme Kleidung quetschen? .
Meine Kinder mögen’s bequem. Natürlich darf bei den Mädchen manchmal auch nicht das Kleid oder der Rock fehlen, aber wenn’s im Alltag drauf ankommt, darf es einfach nicht zwicken und nicht zwacken. Selbst das Haargummi nicht 🤪🙈🤷🏼♀️ ihr seht! Wir legen wert auf Details 😂 .
Aber das kennt ihr doch auch! Oder?!Enttäuscht mich nicht! Sagt mir bitte ich bin mit diesen ‚Zimperleins‘ nicht allein... 🤓 .
Naht drückt, Zettel juckt, ist zu eng, ist zu weit, ist zu lang oder ist gar zu kurz 🙃 . [Werbung unbezahlt]

18 weeks of you + me 🖤 We get to find out if this baby is a girl or a boy next Wednesday and I am SO excited 🙊 I think finding out the gender is my favorite part of the whole pregnancy 🤣 I love learning more about who this little human is going to be. And I love that we can finally pick a name ✨
I was 100% convinced this baby was a boy because I wasn’t getting headaches like I did with Liv, but then from week 13-17 I got headaches every single day. So now I have NO IDEA what to think! Either way, Locke still wants to name this baby Home Depot...so 🤷🏽♀️🤣

You may have already seen this clip but in light of the recent news we want to remind our Mumz that whether or not you follow strict family traditions or are parenting independently, it’s ok not to be ok!
Tag a mum who needs to hear this 🙌🏻
📷 @itvnews .
The clip shows Bradby asking what the impact had been “on your physical and mental health of all the pressure that you clearly feel under?”
Appearing nervous, Meghan replies: “Look, any woman — especially when they’re pregnant — you’re really vulnerable, so that was made really challenging and when you have a newborn, you know... It’s really… It’s a lot. So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed and it’s...yeah.”
She then adds: “Thank you for asking, ‘cause not many people have asked if I’m OK, but it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”
Her sisters are driving me wild this afternoon, but look at her... so damn perfect even though she 💩 all through the bouncer. Luckily it wasn’t in this gorgeous new white romper from @lasiennacouture 😂😂 #sadiespam#loveshersisters
Over the holidays we were swimming so much and the kids loved it. My biggest thing with swimming is that horrible chlorine smell that you get after being in the water. Even after showering you can still smell it sometimes. ⠀
When I was introduced to @swim.skin.spray and was told about how it neutralises the chlorine smell, I was so excited to try it, but thought surely it will still leave some chlorine smell? ⠀
Nope!!! It gets rid of the smell completely. It was amazing and leaves the skin soft too. ⠀
I definitely recommend getting this, especially if you go swimming indoors where chlorine can be the strongest. ⠀
Not missing Chicago right now. At. All. ☀️🌴On our flight out yesterday, our airline offered $1,000 travel vouchers per volunteer willing to take a later flight, as they were oversold and needed 4 seats. 😳 Any other time, I might’ve considered it (that’s $3K in flight money) but we for sure would have never gotten out and would be enjoying 10 degrees instead of 80! 🥶#whydoweliveinchicago #averyleonorvelez

She makes the world a brighter place and I’m so grateful to be her momma. 🥰 .
At my first OB appointment a few weeks ago, I was juggling all the things... a toddler, a diaper bag, TWO Minnie mouses because one wasn’t enough, Mickey Mouse of course, papers of what to do and don’t do during pregnancy, my next appointment card, and 2 coats! We had about a mile walk to get back to the car so we had to get situated. We stopped right before the exit. I plopped all the stuff down and began to wrestle Ellie’s coat on her wiggly body while she tries to hold all the mouses and climb a window seal at the same time. I felt myself getting frustrated and had to take ALL the deep breaths. 😂 But at the same exact time I noticed an elderly man in a wheel chair notice Ellie. I could see his smile out of the corner of my eye. .
And that’s when I saw it! The happiness that she transfers onto people. How she brightens the room just by being in it. It’s a beautiful thing to watch. .
So as I’m doing my toddler wrangling, I could feel the elderly man’s energy like he was saying... you are a good mom, you are blessed, I wish I could get these moments back. They are hard moments, but beautiful moments. 😢❤️
And... I’m just in shock/ denial over here that she’s about to be TWO in just a few weeks!! 😭

Some days are really hard, and I long for just five minutes of peace and quiet. I go so many days with dry shampoo that I forget the last time I washed my hair 🤷🏼♀️😂
It’s a daily sacrifice of my own needs in order to keep our household surviving. My brain is literally like an internet browser with 100 tabs open at each moment - grocery lists, kids schedules, husband commitments, my commitments, obligations, plans for the near and far future.... juggling IT ALL.
I find myself going through the day counting down the minutes until the kids go to bed. And when I lay down at night - I’m frequently exhausted to the very core of my bones.
And then it happens.
I see my daughter carrying an armful of her many stuffed animals down the stairs as she loudly & excitedly exclaims “Mom! I brought SEVEN friends downstairs today!”
I watch my son line up his toy cars every single morning and then storm through the house like a hurricane smiling and laughing and screaming “Come get me mama!!!”
We come home from a night out with friends and the babysitter tells us that Callen cried during the whole bed time routine because he just wanted one more hug from Mom.
Or, the mornings I go in to wake Celine up for school and she crawls in my lap, gives me a hug and says “I missed you mama!”
Lately - these moments have hit me as little reminders. Reminders that someday, the stuffed animals will be gone. The toy cars will be given away. Our floors will remain clean, and there won’t be anyone small enough to sit in my lap for a hug.
People tell me all the time that they miss the toddler days.
I think I finally know what they mean. They miss these little moments. The moments of pure innocence, joy, and wonder. The moments that remind you that you are your children’s entire world 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
It humbles me to my core. I’m really trying to work on not wishing the days away, finding time to just sit and play without worrying about the to do list, and giving as many hugs as I can.... Finding gratitude for the “little” things, for the moments I KNOW I will want back someday❤️❤️❤️
Heading to the gym on this rainy Saturday morning! 🌧💕 Thea was so mad when I told her she couldn’t wear dress up clothes to the gym today. I said, “sorry, but this is the vibe today.” She replies, “No me like dat vibe!” 😅 We finished Yellowstone, so now what show should we watch? Keep in mind I don’t like anything too violent or scary. 🙅🏼♀️

Let’s talk about 𝘮𝘰𝘮𝘮𝘺 𝘨𝘶𝘪𝘭𝘵
We spend all day with our kids, catering to their every need; yet when we get some time away there’s a part of us that feels we don’t deserve it.
That’s the dreaded 𝘮𝘰𝘮𝘮𝘺 𝘨𝘶𝘪𝘭𝘵. We all feel it. It’s normal but we need to work through it!
I have to constantly remind myself that it’s okay to take care of myself. In order for me to be 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐬𝐭 mommy I can be to my tiny humans I need to feel 𝐦𝐲 𝐛𝐞𝐬𝐭.
Go out, have fun, enjoy yourself. Recharge and get in tune with who you are outside of being a 𝘮𝘰𝘮. You DESERVE it!

Gio had his second gymnastics showcase today! He had 14 family members in attendance to cheer him on. We pretty much filled a whole bleacher section. So thankful for all the people who love my kids so well! ❤️ #giorgioharris

7 months of Stella and Beau! •Stella has learned to sit independently (for a bit). She LOVES solids and continues to make pretty unnerving demon growls as her primary form of communication. She’s flat out obsessed with her big brothers, who never fail to get a laugh out of her. •Beau loves crawling and being on the move. He’s already living up to his role of littlest brother by stealing everyone’s toys. I can’t even tell you how many times a day I hear “no Beau no!”. He want to keep up with his big bro’s so badly.
Love these two little munchkins so much 🥰
Picture inspo goes to @kendrums !
Look who started taking steps on their own now last night!! She took three steps by herself before I started recording!! My baby is growing up!!

You're not quite what I pictured you would be, you're better than my wildest dreams
I’ve been on the hunt for a good baby monitor ever since Remi came along, so I was thrilled when the team at @lollipopbabycamera reached out! I love how easy it is to move around the house, I can use it in the nursery, in our room near the bassinet and even in the lounge when I’m doing housework and want to keep an eye on her. The picture quality is amazing and there’s even a crying detection feature so I know if Remi is awake even if I can’t hear her from the other room. I can’t wait to see how we go once she moves into her nursery🥰 #lollipopbabymonitor#lollipopbabycamera#lollipopbabycam#gifted

T O D A Y we celebrated 2 years of survival in Parenthood. Oh, and Teddy's 2nd birthday! It was a day of cake, cheezles, Frozen, pouring rain, extreme humidity, a cheeky wine for mum and Connor McGregor attempting to upstage Teddy. McGregor had no chance! .
Cheers to 2 years as this awesome threesome!🥂🎉
Scarred, stretched, bruised and battled. Beautiful, warm, safe, strong, empowered, created, nourished, housed, loved and changed. All because of you 🖤 These are the things that made us, that made THEM. Love and cherish every ounce of who you are and what your body has been able to do. No matter the size or shape or story, you’re a freaking bad ass superwomen + BEAUTIFUL!! 📸: Lennon, while we were dancing to the Frozen soundtrack. Messy house and pants unbuttoned from eating grilled cheese and tomato soup. Real life 🖤
I don’t think we need studies to prove that grandparents have an enormous positive impact on children.
🟧 But the research is there. Grandparents help children emotionally both in the short and long term. They decrease depressive symptoms and increase happiness and emotional intelligence, and so much more . . .
What else should we put on the list? It should be a very long list!

Low quality pic, high quality memory.
Me & nick sent the kids to bed before us tonight cause we had some housework to do. Well, Raiden is the child that cannot fall asleep without snuggling someone & feeling safe. So since I wasn’t able to lay with him, maya told him to come lay by her & asked him if he wanted her to put her arm around him & protect him. Y’all, my mama heart is in a puddle right now. They may fight like crazy sometimes, but they really do love each other so much.
Happy birthday Gavin 🎂🎉!!!
#SiennaSkyler had a bouncing good time at ur birthday party with all of Skyler's classmates...
The fun didn't stop there...
We then headed to @bowlerobowl for more fun!
Arcade games and Bowling 🎳
This momma surprised myself by scoring 113 with 4 spares
(I switched name places with Skyler on the scoreboard)...
Not bad for someone that doesn't really like bowling! 😅
Fun day with the fam bam...
Now where's my coffee? ☕🤔

Two of my favourite things:
A sleeping baby, and this @status_anxiety bag. ☾
When I was pregnant I spent so much time researching what i imagined my new babies “Montessori Play Space” would look like... wooden toys, puzzles, and activities that promote creative/ independent play and develop gross motor skills. I pinned my dream play rooms and researched why each toy was a good buy (I was obsessed 🙈). Time really does fly. I am almost 1.5 years into this motherhood life and I STILL get tears in my eyes seeing my baby enjoy these toys that not too long ago were just a thing on my Pinterest board. Seeing Oakley develop skills above her age range makes every penny worth it. I feel EXTRA grateful to have these pieces right here from @wiwiurka_toys ... we haven’t had them for long but Oakley has already mastered the ability to climb and it melts my heart. Kids these days don’t get outside enough, what used to be climbing trees, riding bikes, etc... are filled with many indoor activities, most of which are built around the TV.. so to give O the opportunity to climb and laugh and play inside AND outside is so magical to me. ANYWAYS! @wiwiurka_toys just restocked their inventory!! So don’t walk, RUN, and get your babes a piece from their Collection, they offer so many amazing items and color ways to match any room and they are WELL worth it!!
A new year and new room! The start of a new year is a great time to update and refresh our homes. Updating this space was so fun. One of my favorite pieces in the room is this gorgeous throw blanket from @kathykuohome If you are looking for high quality artisan furniture and decor pieces head to @kathykuohome they are having their Winter Sale Use code WISH20 for 20% off!!

Today we celebrated Gab’s 1st birthday. It has been incredible to watch her from when she was in her mama’s belly, being present at her birth, until now. My how time flies, our love for you only seems to grow more each and every day. Dakota is so protective of Gabby and it’s the absolute cutest thing. Happy birthday sweet girl ♥️
Tax season is upon us and Trevor will begin to work weekends starting next weekend. The next few months always feel like a long marathon and I’m not sure I’m ready. But today was wonderful and we had the best time together ❤️
Snowy day snuggles!
