Learning to live and love in the beauty of small moments.
As a first time mom I wasn't able to fully appreciate the newborn phase because the days felt so slow and monotonous. This time around, I know she will only be this small for the briefest time so I'm soaking up every second ✨ #babyRoo#newborn#motherhood
This boy has been smitten with his little sister since the first moment he saw her 💘 He always wants to be right by her side, commenting on her "beautiful eyes" and "beautiful feet." This morning, while rocking her in her swing, he said, "Mom, I think Rooney's name is passed. I think she needs a new one. Let's call her Boo Boo." 😆 Also thankful for a toddler who keeps me up to speed on baby name trends. #babyRoo#babyBooBoo#bigbrother#motherhood
A fall-inspired painting session with Ollie. 🍁🍂🌾🍂🍁 After spending time outside yesterday, I suggested we use the pine cones and rocks we collected to paint something we saw in nature. Mom's: fall flowers. Ollie's: a "robot dinosaur" 😂 #myboy
The newborn phase is so sweet and goes by so fast and I've been trying to soak up every second of it. But this afternoon, while my big boy was at school, I was hit with the deepest longing for alone time with him. So once he was home we went off into the woods around our house. Just the two of us. And I felt a renewed appreciation for his curiosity, his humor, and his sense of adventure.
I'm so thankful for little moments like this as I learn how to be a mom to two. #myboy#motherhood
Our first outing as a family of 4 🙌🏼🎉 It's no surprise that this little cuddle bug loves being all wrapped up. And it makes this mama so happy to see the ground covered in those bright yellow leaves 🤗🍂🍁 #favoriteseason#babyRoo#motherhood
Post bath newborn goodness 😍 This little bird wasn't a fan of her first bath at home but we'll make up for it with lots of snuggles. #babyRoo
We are all about holiday weekends over here 🙌🏼 Slept in, went out for breakfast, then stopped by the farm to chase around some cute little animals. After seeing this guy with the 🐷🐴🐮🐔I think we may have a future country boy on our hands.
