  • Oh hey there, handsome. 😍 I seriously can't even belive sometimes that you are mine. How lucky your daddy and I are.
  • Ready for the big SURPRISE?? Our little of family of three has been upgraded to a family of FOUR 👶❤! Bubba number two will be joining us in August and we are oh so very excited! I think a lot of you kind of already knew which is pretty impressive! This pregnancy is FLYING BY and some days I feel like I don't even have time to remember that there is a baby in there! I've been feeling little movements since about 13 weeks and it's so exciting to think about Hudson being a big brother. Our big international move, a new baby, and the start of such an exciting new chapter in our life together awaits! I'm so excited to share this journey with you! I will be posting about the first 16 weeks of my pregnancy on the blog later this week.
  • That moment when you realise your baby is, in fact, your best friend. Oh, and I'm totally not embarrassed because he is way cooler than me. ❤
  • The winter months can be so hard on our babies tiny immune systems which is why I rely on @vitabiotics Wellbaby Liquid to make sure Hudson always has the vitamins and minerals his growing body needs! With 14 vitamins and minerals, I feel confident knowing I'm giving him the best... Especially on days when he won't eat his broccoli! #Vitabiotics #WellBaby #Ad
  • Even though I'm the ONLY one smiling in this pic, I'm just thankful to have one of the three of us together! P. S. Keep your eyes peeled for a special announcement coming soon...big things happening in this little family! ❤
  • Still in our pj's and so unashamed! At 17 months, this is totally my favorite stage! I love that we can lay on the floor and play with blocks and have our own little one word conversations. He knows the words to his favorite books and knows how to make anybody laugh. His little personality is growing everyday. He has such an adventurous soul and is most happy outside! He makes me the happiest and proudest mom in the world.
  • Life is so so so stressful right now and some days I feel like I'm drowning. We're moving to a different country and let me just tell you that it's a lot harder (and pricier) than it looks. I had a bit of a breakdown today. Like a fetal position, ugly-cry type breakdown. I feel like I just need my mom to come wrap me up and rub my back and tell me it's all going to be OK. Of course it will be OK and in two months we will be stateside and life will finally be settling down, but I'm struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel some days. Anyway, we took a long walk as a family somewhere new and by the beach and I was able to bring myself back to some sort of zen and remind myself of the great things I'm still surrounded by. Even in the ugliest of times, I am still so thankful for this little smooth who I may or may not have held a little bit longer and tighter tonight. Life may be hard but I wouldn't change any of the decisions I've made to get here. Sorry to bore you with all the gory details but look at that gorgeous boy.
  • Beach Babes 🌅🌊🐚 another day, another beach!
  • Shameless selfie because I rarely feel "beautiful" anymore. I mean it ultimately goes back to the changes that inevitably happen when you have a baby. You don't always have time to look nice, you and your partner don't always remember that romance is important, and the sexy woman you thought you were has been replaced with a mom who hardly has the energy to take a shower, let alone all the "extras." I need to work on this. I went on a date with just my hubs this weekend and I felt beautiful and I can't tell you (honestly)  the last time I looked in the mirror and thought, Damn girl you've still got it. But turns out with a lot of work and a reason to celebrate, I do still got it.  So, cheers to all of you gorgeous mamas who don't give yourself enough credit. It amazes me how many GORGEOUS women I see doubting their beauty on here. Rock it. You are beautiful, even with that mom bun.  BAM.
