6 months today. 😍 have to admit, I haven't gotten round to taking her 6 month photos yet. Will have to do it soon! But she still fits in this dress & I love this pic. So... She is such a huge source of joy. She hardly cries and she loves her sisters. Sits beautifully. She rolls to get to where she wants to be, seems to want to crawl but not there yet. Just a pleasure to be her mother. ♡ #MyMooieAtarah @christoharms

It’s Friday! Friday! Gonna get down on Friday! . Actually to be truthful, the only “getting down” I will be doing tonight will be my head falling unconscious style down onto the pillow as I go to bed. #AndICantBloodyWaitGirlfriend . And this is because I am a parent. And even “easy days” (of which today was NOT one of those) have the potential to drive you to utter exhaustion. Yes sir, they do. And because of that, there is nothing that I love more than seeing my husband walk through that door at the end of a long week, so he can entertain the kids for a bit so I can just Get. Some. Shit. Done. 🙌🏻 #MummasAreBasicallyMultiTaskingOctopuses . I mean take this pic for example. I am pretty sure that I am telling my son to go the f@ck to bed already and that I’m trying to thrust our daughter into my husbands arms so I can go and have a rare poo in peace at the end of a long day. #JokesButSoSeriousAtTheSameTime Or maybe I just realised that I lost track of time pretending to be a transformer with the boy, and that I only have ten minutes to prepare and eat dinner and make ALL the meals for the following day. Coz it happens. . Gulp. No matter what I’m thinking about in this pic, I am ordering everybody about with clenched teeth and a raging soul. That much I DO know lol. 😂 . Who else is like this on a Friday night? Who wants to just tap the heck out and switch off once the partner comes home? 🙋🏻‍♀️ . Leave a comment below and tell me that you are JUST as tappy-outty-let-me-poo-in-peacey as me lol. 🙌🏻❤️ . Ps Rad pic by the bet-she-gets-to-poo-on-her-own @jessworrallphotography . The boy wears @threadsforboys_ . The sweet babe wears @jamiekaystore and @luluandmilly . Mumma wears @forevernew_official . Daddy wears... all the rest of us. I honestly think we are sitting completely on top of him. Poor guy. We aren’t light 😂😂😂 at Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

This cheeky bubba loves messing up his older sister’s holdie house! He rearranges all the furniture (by throwing it on the door and trying to eat the plants) and then decides the house needs some cars parked out front.. but rightly so! We so love our holdie house so much from @olliella and all the amazing furniture you can get... which mimics our own a little bit too much 😂 . . . . . . . #capturingchildhood #thisjoyfulmoment #dailyparenting #documentyourdays #kidsofinsta #momlifestyle #lifeupclose #simplychildhood #thismamaloves #motherhoodalive #simplymotherhood #littlebitsoflife #curiouslittleexplorers #mumlifeisthebestlife #thesearethedays #kidstoys #dollhouse #woodentoys

In a far away city long long from home.. lived a girl. She was born with a birth defect. Some people could never tell. But the ones who did notice, bullied and tormented her for the next 10 years. . Going to school made her sick in the stomach, she had always been a high achiever but as the years went by so did her ambition. She lost interest in her dreams and just spent the time counting down until she could go home and have some peace. . This post goes out to every single one of you who lost the spark in the hands of a bully. . If it one thing I have learn't, it's this. People are going to talk about you even if you do nothing, so you might aswell go out there and capture your dreams because the talk will happen regardless. No matter the circumstances people are always going to have something to say. Why believe the words coming from someone who has no IDEA about who you are? Why do we trust strangers words more then the words of our loved ones? MIND BLOWN. . When you have been bullied about a certain feature and that feature has given you issues all your life it is difficult to let go. Every single day I am reminded of it. Today I am strong, but I am a work in progress. . 📷 @krish_goundar . . . . . . . . . . #thisisme #motherhood #womenempowerment #motherhoodalive #mumbloggers #family #oureverydaymoment #mommyblogger #beingmum #uniteinmotherhood #myhappycapture #rememberingthesedays #dailyparenting #igmoms #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #capturedmoments #parentblogger #parenthood #parenting #parentlife #theordinarymoments #developinglife #documentingmotherhood #lifeskills #rolemodels #mumlife #wife #mother at Sydney, Australia

Yesterday was gorgeous - we pulled the wellies on and walked around the fields, spotted the horses, and Brodie was terrified when the bin truck suddenly roared up to the gate he was standing by!! . I love having so much space and green around us, its creating real little wildlings who love being outdoors. For the record I am not a happy camper, but I love the fresh air and peace. My dream is to live by the sea - but Edi's family are from the Mediterranean so we hope to have a house there one day 🤞🏻 . It's the end if the Half Term week everyone, can you see that school lantern light glowing at the end of the tunnel?!! . . . . . . . . #growingupfast #growingupoutdoors #scarybintruck #raisingwilds #letthemplay #mumoftwo #mumofboys #dailyparenting #documentyourdays #lovelysquares #capturethemoments #littleandbrave #mediteraneandreams #beachhousegoals #halfterm #friday #myhappyviews #inbeautyandchaos #motherhood #livebeautifully #slowliving #morningslikethese #motherhoodalive

✨A friend is born the moment one person says to another “me too” ✨ So much of motherhood is not talked about - you wonder “am I doing this right?” “Is it just me?” This month I hosted two meet ups on the Gold Coast and Brisbane. I watched women arrive nervous and not knowing anyone. Then I watched them find common ground with other women and have their “me too” moments. He’s not sleeping. Me too. I’m winging it. Me too. This is isolating. Me too. This is awesome and messy, and hard and great, and horrible and amazing all at the same time. Me too. I watched them find common ground, swap numbers and Facebook profiles with their new friends, plan movie dates and child free dinners. Who knows where those friendships will lead. Maybe they hit it off and becoming lifelong friends. Maybe they support each other through the joys and challenges of the years ahead. Maybe in years from now they’ll laugh about how they had an arranged mum marriage at a Mama Tribe meet up 😂 There’s power in women coming together and focusing on the “me too” rather than what separates us. So many people want to look for our differences, we’d rather focus on what unites us. #nomumleftbehind 📸 from meetups over the last few weeks 💕 Join the tribe using the link in bio x

Stoked with Grammy this morning and apparently excited for her third week of daycare...😐 That all went out the window the second we pulled into the car park. I don’t think I’ve ever been clung to as tightly as that. Her poor teacher literally had to peel her off me after 20 mins 😰 A follow up call half hour later though and she seemed happy enough playing outside. Whyyyyy does it suck so much at drop off?! I know over time it’ll get better, but I definitely spent the first few hours of my “work day” feeling the wrath of #mumguilt We’ve decided to go ahead with the big girl bed tomorrow and she’s doing so well at toilet training that I think we may even venture out of the house sans nappy 😱😱😱 I really haven’t gone about this whole toilet training gig in any particular way, very much just following her lead with lots of praise and encouragement. She’s only had a few accidents but is sometimes hesitant to get out of her happy after sleep and naps to get back into undies. Baby steps I suppose. We are armed with mattress protectors and I will definitely have an extra coffee tomorrow to prepare for the 1765 get out of beds... 🤦🏼‍♀️ Will try to remember to post progress on stories tomorrow night 😂🙈 #toilettraining #biggirlbed #wheredmybabygo 😭😭😭 at Charlestown, New South Wales

Always Mañana 🌿 Last night at work it was busy. And I was tired. My bed time is usually around 9:30 (go hard or go to bed hey!) so finishing at 12:30 was a challenge. And then someone very special reached out to me and said that thanks to medical staff who work late and crazy hours, her daughter was able to receive life saving treatment. It was a sobering and deeply humbling comment that gave me the little lift I needed to get through the last couple of hours of my shift, and a timely reminder of why I do what I do. Bad days happen, tiring days are abundant and work isn’t always enjoyable. But there’s always tomorrow. at East Victoria Park, Western Australia

* Half Term Spends * Do you get fed up of spending money in half terms and holidays? This week during half term Stacey tried trying out something new. She gave each of her kids £5.00 to spend on whatever they choose over the course of the week. They could spend it on anything that they wanted if we visit a museum, gallery or god forbid we pass by a pound shop 🙈 We get that kids see this plastic rubbish and are immediately drawn to it and ask if they can have it but also get so fed up of saying no all the time that I am going to be handing responsibility to them. They decided, if whatever said item they MUST have, was worth their pennies or not. And when those pennies were gone, they were gone. If you want to get your kids to do the same in school holidays we have just the thing for you. Our coin purse with their initial in glitter and a positive affirmation charm, you can choose, will keep their pennies safe and hopefully we can teach our kids to choose carefully what they spend their precious money on :-) . . . . #wearescamp #motherhoodalive  #our_everyday_moments  #ourchildrenphoto  #thatsdarling  #childofig  #thechildrenoftheworld  #thepursuitofjoyproject  #livethelittlethings  #liveauthentic  #lightinspired  #candidchildhood  #childhoodunplugged  #motherhoodrising  #momdotme  #parenthood  #motherhoodthroughinstagram  #cameramama  #momswithcameras  #pixel_kids  #umh_kids  #livingsimply  #ourfacelessadventure  #simplychildren #clickinmoms #mytinymoments #motherhoodrising #letthembelittle #motherlylove #cameramama

You guys! We have the sweetest neighbors EVER! 😍 . I befriended a sweet couple down the street last spring, and they’ve been so generous and kind. . One of the last times we visited them, baby pulled this chair out of a random cubby. They joked about us taking the chair home so that she could crawl all over it everyday. . When we visited them this week, they presented us with this chair—sanded, and refinished with such care and love...all for baby girl. . I cried! 😭😜 . It’s the sweetest, most thoughtful gift, and I’m so touched! ❤️ I feel so loved and cared for, and am so thankful we have such wonderful people in our lives! ❤️ . She’s had a blast pushing it around, playing with it, and has already figured out that her babies and animals aren’t the only things that can stand on it...or fall off of it! 😱🤦‍♀️😆😍 . . . . . #balancedwifestyle #parenting #mindfulmama #honestmotherhood #motherhoodalive #sahm #momlife #motherhood #parenting #momgoals #toddlermom #girlmom #raisinggirls #newmom #postpartum #toddlerlife #letthembelittle #littleexplorer #lifewithkids #playbasedlearning #letthemplay #bestneighborsever

This afternoon was an adventure. My little one was so tired but he is that kid that can’t miss a thing. Well, this mama was clearing the bed to try for the 3x to put down the little man. It just takes seconds for a disaster to happen. The time it took me to clear the books off the bed my oh so delicious coffee was all over the floor and I even had a broken coffee mug, my favorite one at that. I just share this because mamas, I have been there. I know that every day isn’t easy. I know that there are going to be days that you will want to yell, scream and pull your head out. There are going to be days you will want to just quit. I got my kiddo down, I was his pillow and once I could break free from the most amazing little cuddles I chased my dreams. I didn’t let spilt coffee, an overall tired kiddo and the fact that I was a pillow stop me. Mamas, chase your dreams, follow your heart, make the time, find the time, squeeze it into the pockets that you do have, make another cup of coffee if you need to and show up for you. Do the things that make you happy. Fill your cup! #fillyourcup #tiredbaby #tiredbabyboy #thisismotherhood #motherhoodintheraw #mykidhatesnaps #mybabyhatesnaps #momofaboy #boymama #boymomlife #sahmlife #sahmproblems #embracethechaos #followyourdreams #iamadreamer #motherhoodalive #honestmotherhood #thejoysofmotherhood #motherhoodjourney #mymotherhood #cosleeping #cosleepingmama #motherhoodishard #fueledbycoffee #coffeeismyfriend #mommymoment #sadmoment #naptimehustle #isitnaptimeyet at Cedar Park, Texas

I don’t normally cleanse or do anything to my face except for moisturise and exfoliate a few times a week because so many products I have used in the past made me break out and were to harsh on my skin, but I decided to give @bohemianskin products a go because of the fact they are 100% natural. Been using them for 1 week straight and not one breakout and not one reaction from my skin and that is amazing because my skin reacts when I use new products and I normally break out hence why I never try new products on my face however I am pleased to say I have found my new skin regime using @bohemianskin 🌱

Week 6 Powerful Thursday At the beginning of these 6 weeks Thursday workouts were something I did not look forward to. I couldn't do a lot of the moves. And those that I could do I couldn't do many reps at all. I beat myself up. I cried tears of frustration and disappointment. Today I was able to push myself when I needed to and some of the moves that were once too hard I could do! I still have a long way to go to grow my physical strength. But this ptogram has taught me SO much about my inner power to do hard things. Non scale victory➡️ I did 2 FULL pushups in a move off the step today where before I could only push up my arms and chest off the step. I did not think I would see so many changes in such a short time. I knew my trainer was AMAZING! But I didn't know he worked on helping people create miracles within themselves 💚💛 Tomorrow is a BIG day. I am SO nervous about Cut Friday this week. But I believe in myself that I CAN do it! Day 39 is in the books y'all and I feel AMAZING! **got ahead of myself in my pic 😂** . . . . . #fitbeautyandstrength365 #transform20 #momgoals #honestmotherhood #motherhoodalive #cameramama #motherhoodinspired #literalmomgoals #raisethemright #momstruggle #momwin #uniteinmotherhood #strongmommies #boymom💙 #momlife💕 #postpartum #mamabear #letthembelittle #infantmom #theeverymom #fitmomlifestyle #weightlossjourney #momboss #empoweredmoms #stayathomemomlife #believeinyou

I remember my first this tiny. I remember her falling asleep on me while rocking her in the rocking chair in her bedroom, with nowhere else to be. I’d sing her lullabies as her breath warmed my skin. Sometimes she’d smile as she drifted off. It always put a smile on my own. I dreamed of what her voice would sound like, what she’d look like older, all the fun times we’d have. Time stopped in those moments, just her and me. It’s photos like this, even though not of us, that bring me right back. Back to the beginning. Back to a tiny Natalie and a newborn me. The most precious of moments. Ones I’ll never ever forget. at Minneapolis, Minnesota

I used to get on Instagram daily and check all my stats with a pit in my stomach. How many followers have I gained? How many followers have I lost? How many likes and comments are my photos getting? The cold, hard truth is that I just don’t want to care anymore. I’ve been working on cutting out the things that don’t serve me or bring me joy. And this practice sure doesn’t serve me. But I still fall into the trap. I’ve been sick and haven’t posted in over a week. Thus, I’ve lost followers and my engagement plummeted. But it does not matter. I’m not giving it energy anymore. Y’all, I LOVE social media. I love Instagram. The community and relationships that come from this platform are invaluable. I still want to use this app. But I feel a pull to be more intentional with it. Focusing on the stats and numbers stresses me out and gives me anxiety. Because as soon as I start to analyze them, I doubt. I doubt myself, my worth, and whether or not people like me. My worth lies in Jesus and in myself. Not in notifications on a screen. I’m a mother. I’m a content creator. Im just a regular person on this platform. I like to post things that are authentically, me and inspire me. And if that doesn’t resonate with everyone, that’s okay. I can’t be the person to follow for everyone. If someone unfollows me, that’s okay. Do I want people to follow me and like and comment on my posts? Absolutely. That would be lovely. But I’m not giving this app and its notifications that much weight in my life. And you shouldn’t either. How many times have we been disappointed by a lack of followers, a loss of followers, or less likes on a photo than we’d like? 🙋‍♀️ That’s not what this app wasn’t meant for. It was created for us to share our story. You are enough. Your worth is not based on your notifications. Are you using this app in a way that serves you? If you’re not, it’s time to start ✨ at Fort Worth, Texas

|| these two boys have had the most skin issues in our family. i feel like I tried everything, especially with graham, since he was our first to have these issues. g definitely had it worse than t but still the same issue so trying to find something that worked and was safe has been difficult. many times i would get a product thinking it was safe so it wouldn’t irritate their skin but it actuality it wasn’t. luckily, their skin isn’t as bad as it was in the past but definitely gets worse during these dry winter months. i recently came across an app that helps with finding products that are safe to use. seriously, once I downloaded this app, i have been going through my house scanning everything like a mad woman😂 i want to use safe products for my entire family and i thought i was doing a pretty good job but once i starting checking, i had some very surprising products that scaled high on the chemical list of this app😳 the app is called think dirty and it has been an amazing tool to help me better buy safer products for my entire family. head to my stories to see some products i had in the house and how they scored! . . . . thank you, @baldwin.wellbeing for sharing this app in your stories, it’s been life-changing😊 at Nebraska

Proof that sometimes this girl is more adult than a lot of adults. Every day this week after work she greets us with “how was your day today mommy and daddy?”. A simple and thoughtful gesture (especially because she’s always genuinely interested in the answer). The mark of a great conversationalist. And it sure beats the old greeting of “you got any fruit snacks?” - Are your little ones turning into mini adults too? . . . . #toddlertales #clickinmoms #mommydaughtertime #proudparent #parentinggoals #acupofmotherhood #candidchildhood #umh_kids #takemyheartdear #gowithnugget #parenthood_unveiled #motherhoodalive #thesincerestoryteller #dailyparenting #mynameismama #motherhoodslens #joyfulmama #realmotherhood #thisismotherhood #parentingwin #seekmoments #treasuringlittlemoments #honestlyparents #raisingthefuture #teachthemwell #kindnessmatters at Lisbon, Portugal

Today a good friend of mine invited a few fellow creatives over for lunch in her beautiful home and we all took our cameras out and photographed a few mamas after. After a long couple of weeks it was just what this soul needed. Community. Being in the presence of other like-minded women. Adult conversation. Beautiful light. I drove away feeling full and inspired. Thank you friend for opening your home and inviting us all to be with you today. ✨

Teething and fever? Noooo problem! 😏 Just kidding! Jasper's been a terror these past couple of weeks, and I've been stuck at home with her waaay too much. 😆 I hope flu season and snow days are done with for the year. 🤞 Ready to shed these layers and for outdoor adventure again! 🏞️ at Fort Erie, Ontario

Do you feel that distance between us? You know, like we should be better friends by now?!...Me too!! I’ll take the blame. Here's the thing.... Just recently I’ve had some light bulb moments about how we can use this little platform to foster genuine relationships... and I wanna be friends for real (or you know, insta-friends...but that totally counts!). So I’ll go first. I live somewhere. Not just on Instagram, haha. Did you know I live in Des Moines? Yes, the little city in the middle of the country that many people consider a flyover and few know how to pronounce correctly (allow me to help with that - its Duh-Moyn 🙃). Des Moines has exceeded my expectations in so many ways, and I am thankful to be here! But I haven’t always felt that way. I was super reluctant about moving here 2 and a half years ago because I couldn't imagine finding a community anything like the one I had in KC. Plus, I never envisioned myself living in Iowa. Des Moines seemed so small and insignificant in my mind. But then something happened. I made up my mind to explore the people and places in Des Moines, and get to know it as much as I possibly could. It required putting myself out there again and again, being adventurous when I didn’t feel like it, and a willingness to step up and start conversations with strangers. And truthfully, so many of those initial conversations first started on the 'gram as I explored local hashtags and locations. Those once strangers have grown into valued friends and powerful community. And now, Des Moines actually gives me the warm fuzzies, and I'm thankful to call it home. It has magnified my passion for authentic community, and pushed me out of my comfort bubble in so many ways. What about you? Where do you live? Have you ever had any hesitations about living where you live? What allowed you to overcome that? at Iowa

These wild banshees are at it again! Aven needs a night light, but at a level too bright for Allister 💡 Allister needs to get “one last” snuggle and smoochie 💋every 15 minutes💋and that wakes Aven up. I am THIS close to asking Pat to build a wall in the middle of their room 😂 so we can actually have our bed to ourselves for once. #getyourfootoutofmyback The only other solution is giving into the struggle and buying a California King. Which would you choose? 😫Praise God they’re adorable in the morning! 😍👏🏻✨ at Santa Barbara, California

When I get two napping babies at the same time ..I don’t even know what to do with myself . The bad thing is , I have to stay IN, can’t run to home goods, TJ max and all those fun stores ..do they still exist!? I guess more online shopping it is. . . . #unfilteredparenthood #momtogs #darlingmovement #momswithcameras #unfilteredmotherhood #rawmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #unitedmotherhood #motherhoodalive #ig_motherhood #motherhoodunhinged #benevolentmotherhood #motherhoodintheraw #wildmotherhood #benevolentmotherhood #igmotherhood #boymom #momwithboys #twoundertwo

Ahhhhh ! Life as a second time mom IS SOO MUCH BETTER . Without the stress , without the questioning , without the crazy worry ness, without all that first time mom crap that comes along . AND this time you cherish it soooooo much more . The best way I can describe it is , when you have an orange and you squeeze all the juice out but yet you keep squeezing even tho you know there isn’t anymore , you still get the little drops, that’s how my days with this little one goes. I WANT TO SOAK UP EVERY Drop of my day with him , because although I knew this as a first time mom already , second time mom KNOWWS first hand how fast it really did go #onemonth #twoundertwo #boymom #onemonth #newborn #motherhood . . . #unfilteredparenthood #momtogs #darlingmovement #momswithcameras #unfilteredmotherhood #rawmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #unitedmotherhood #motherhoodalive #ig_motherhood #motherhoodunhinged #benevolentmotherhood #motherhoodintheraw #wildmotherhood #benevolentmotherhood #igmotherhood #boymom #momwithboys #twoundertwo

One whole month since this extra piece of our puzzle 🧩 made it into the world . Our month recap .. he’s not that bad , I think I’ll keep him 😜. Xavier is a fun quiet guy , until you take his pacifier aka mommy away , he’s veryyy awake and very alert def not the newborn I was used to , he’s smaller than his brother and still in newborn clothes when PJ only used newborn for a week n half .. he’s had a super easy transition into the world with no issues of any kind it’s been smooth around here. I’ve had tons of help around the house I have yet to be left alone with two so I can’t tell you how that’s going 😅. PJ has taken this super well , he doesn’t even know or acknowledge him only when you ask how the baby goes he will mimic his cry making fun of him it’s hilarious, other than that baby doesn’t even phase him one bit and thanks to all our family for paying so much attention to him while this mommy has been attending to baby brother . Mentally I’ve been amazing and I wish this is what I felt the first time around , I did find myself missing pj and our time together first few days because I couldn’t spend play time with him but it’s getting better . And for all my worrisome if I could love a second the same , everyone was so right , it’s like your heart just DOES AND KNOWS . Physically, wow second time c section was a breeze . . . . #unfilteredparenthood #momtogs #darlingmovement #momswithcameras #unfilteredmotherhood #rawmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #unitedmotherhood #motherhoodalive #ig_motherhood #motherhoodunhinged #benevolentmotherhood #motherhoodintheraw #wildmotherhood #benevolentmotherhood #igmotherhood #boymom #momwithboys #twoundertwo

You wake up one morning and BAM 💥 you’re 37 weeks #preterm #fullterm #pregnancy #done well almost 🤗 #twoyearspregnant . My little cousin had the funniest thing to say yesterday when we were having a conversation and mentioned “PJ’s Little brother “ she is 6 years old and looked at me and said PJ has a brother ? We all were confused and I giggled and said “yes the one in my tummy “ and her face 😱 . And I told her “did you not know I had a baby in my tummy this whole time? “ (I see her often) She then says “I was wondering why you still had that tummy since after PJ” 😂 😂 LITERALLY dead . Too funny not to share . . . . #unfilteredparenthood #momtogs #darlingmovement #momswithcameras #unfilteredmotherhood #rawmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #unitedmotherhood #motherhoodalive #ig_motherhood #motherhoodunhinged #benevolentmotherhood #motherhoodintheraw #wildmotherhood #benevolentmotherhood #igmotherhood #boymom #momwithboys #twoundertwo
