Everyone is finally feeling better, the temperature is about 0 and the sun is shining. Theodore needed shades it’s so bright! I think it’s going to be a great day here ✨

Last week we learnt about worms but it rained so much it was too wet to make a wormery. So we took the opportunity to get outside in the sunshine ☀️ today and make a wormery using jar filled with sand and soil. Then the children had great fun finding worms to put in it! I'm sure they will enjoy observing the worms over the next couple of days. Have you ever made a wormery?
lately, he has been extremely independent. i swear, if he didn’t need his diaper changed he would have moved out already . . . and while i love seeing him grow, my heart is just a little sad he seems to be “needing” us less and less (except for when we walk out of the room of course 🙄). but then i watch him roll all over the place, attempt to crawl, and grab for the thinnest of things and cheer him on!! *if you’re wondering “is the @dockatot worth it?” check out my post centered on my thoughts on it! link in bio.*
Guess what ? There’s no more snow on the ground ! You know what that means ? Time to go hiking !!! ...ok maybe not just yet bc there’s still snow in the forecast but a girl can dream!!!
Hiking is definitely one of my favourite outdoors activities because you get your exercise in while being surrounded by gorgeous nature #winwin ! I can definitely say getting outdoors all the time helped me achieve my weight loss goals !
We take our kids with us and make it a family outing. Sad I won’t be able to use the baby carrier anymore and will have to transition Safa to a toddler backpack carrier.
Rattlesnake point is our fave hiking spot! Have you been ?

Ellis so badly wants to walk and holds onto everything she can. She just can’t figure out how to consistently move her feet 🙈 Also how cute is this bow!? @noslippyhairclippy sent me some samples and we love them! They keep Ellis’ unruly bangs under control and she doesn’t rip them out 🙌🏼 perfect! They’re so amazing, they’re giving me a coupon code for 20% off site wide (excluding sale) to share with you all. It’s INST34 and ends at the end of the month! Check them out 🖤
Going into pregnancy there were/are 3 things I worried about: Gestational Diabetes, Pre-Eclampsia and Group B Strep.⠀
✔️ Passed my GD test⠀
✔️ No pre-e⠀
✔️ NEGATIVE for group b strep (which was one of my major worries because it could affect Baby and my birth plan)⠀
Anyways! I tried my best to feed my body probiotics, ate all the yogurt and said allllll the prayers. ⠀
I didn’t drink Kombucha (I would have but I stopped drinking it when I got sick and I didn’t want to overload my body but you totally can drink it!) but instead drank sparkling probiotic drinks, ate organic whole fat yogurt and took quality probiotics. *some women eat fermented foods and use a lot of garlic. Both things that make me nauseous.*⠀
Young Living’s Life 9 came in clutch during this time 🙌🏼⠀
A lil about probiotics and why EVERYONE needs them!⠀
Why does taking a probiotic matter? All health starts in the gut. Hands down! A huge overlooked reason that our digestive tracts are critical to our health is because 80 percent of your entire immune system is located in your digestive tract! ⠀
In addition to the impact on our immune systems, our digestive systems are the second largest part of our neurological system. It’s literally our second brains! So, when I say our health begins IN OUR GUTS - I mean it, literally. The many toxins we’re subjected to today decrease digestive function, affecting our ability to utilize nutrients and rid ourselves of yucky stuff, triggering chronic inflammation in the body, which is the cause of many chronic conditions and diseases. Getting a good balance of good bacteria IS ESSENTIAL. Some of the benefits of taking a probiotic include:⠀
-Stronger immune system⠀
-Increased energy from production of vitamin B12⠀
-Better breath because probiotics help destroy candida⠀
-Healing from some gut/digestive issue⠀
It feels like just yesterday we brought our new born home with us and now I have a one year old. Where did the time go?! 😭 I loved the newborn phase. It was filled with so much learning. She was the best baby ever. But this phase right now, the infant phase is my favorite. She’s starting to walk and talk, she’s got the biggest attitude 😩 and the best of all she’s showing us how much she loves us all. I love everything about her. I’m excited to see what each phase has in store for us! Happy Birthday my sweet Oli💘 I love you I love you I love you !
It’s been a day. 🙄 To the sweetest, very pregnant Mama that came up to me at the Green Valley @target after witnessing this shit show happen for over 20+ minutes, asked if she could help and gave me some encouragement with saying, “You’re doing a great job!”... your actions and sweet gesture that made me well up and start crying was so needed! It really does take a village and just taking the time to acknowledge how hard Momming is to another in public needs to happen more often to remind us we aren’t crazy and alone! ❤️❤️ .
Also, for anyone who thinks our Instagram life looks like a dream come true like social media tends to emphasize.... here’s a friendly reminder there’s so much more behind the scenes that makes us not-so put together!😜🤷🏼♀️😩

This boy is going to be a year and a half in a week. 😥 He is quiet, sweet, funny, and definitely can be mischievous.
He loves playing with his sister and Gunnar, watching movies, swings, and going to the aquarium. His favorite food is either strawberries or blueberry waffles!
I have loved every second watching his personality develop and I still can’t believe I have the honor of being his mama. 💓

Irgendwie werd ich das Gefühl nicht los, das jeder den Sonnenschein genießen kann, nur wir nicht 🤔 Zumindest wenn man den Feed und die Stories mancher sieht ☺️ Bei uns stattdessen seit Tagen grauer Himmel und Schnee ☁️🌨 Schnee mögen wir. Die Kälte auch. Aber ein wenig Sonne tagsüber wär schon mal schön ☀️ So genug gejammert, macht euch einen schönen Tag, genießt die Sonne und das Leben 🤗
#littlerascal 💫 out of breath with wild hair, after jumping on the hotel bed :) Anzeige | Achtung Mami-Satz: „Sie ist einfach sooo groß geworden! ☺️“ Ich weiß noch, wie mega mega süß es war, wenn sie mit Windelpo im Bett rumrockte. Hachz! Dabei ist es noch gar nicht so ewig her.
Uns hat jedenfalls Pampers die meiste Zeit durch die Windelzeit begleitet. Deshalb fand ich es auch sehr spannend, dass ich kürzlich das P&G Forschungszentrum besuchen durfte, um mehr über die Forschungstätigkeit von Pampers zu erfahren. 50-100 Testbabys besuchen jede Woche das Zentrum, um die Pampers immer noch besser zu machen. Alles zum Event und Tipps für Babys Schlaf & gesunde Haut -> jetzt auf'm Blog 😘
