I seriously can’t believe it! My sweet, sweet baby! Where has the time gone. Everyone always say they grow up too fast. Soon he’ll be driving and you wont even know what happened! Ugh! I believe that can be so true! Its so easy for that to happen! I have periods of this year that seem longer and like wonderful pleasant memories and others that seem rushed and like I was just holding on going through the routine of it all! Now of course I’m not claiming to be a parenting expert but please please please SLOW DOWN! Live in the moment, soak it all in, the sleepless nights, the crying, the boredom at times. Believe me it will be gone so fast and you’ll wish you would have been in the moment more, soaking it all in, remembering every last second! Babies are so special. My heart just melts going over the last year in my head!
But anyway on to the fun stuff! Parker’s Very Hungry Caterpillar Party! I was so lucky I found a free printable online and was able to custom create his invitations. They are so divine with his little face on there!!
Dear Moms, We all are beautiful. We are all important. As mother’s we have a very special role to play. Unfortunately a lot of us get so caught up in this role that we forget about us and become only artist, writer, rock climber, yogi, MOM. Let me re-instill a fact, that I’m sure we all know deep down to be true. That our most important gift to our children is sharing with them our lives and our love. A happy fulfilled role model is better than an unsatisfied mother who feels resentment for giving up her dreams. Juggling children and hobbies, isn’t always easy but we don’t have to feel guilty. You can still be that fun loving person you were before baby. So you were a wild and crazy party girl?? Okay, so you may need to put away the sequin mini skirts and keg stands every night 😛 But you can still be your care-free, energetic self. Just a more kid friendly version of it. If you love to paint or write. Invite your children to join you. Never give up on your dreams. Never give up on who you are. Share your interest and hobbies with your children. Share your love. Mother will always be your number one title, but remember you can also be artist, writer, rock climber, yogi, whatever your heart desires….. ❤
Being a mom doesn’t have to mean saying goodbye to style! The easiest way to look put together in a flash is just to make your wardrobe simple! Don’t get me wrong I love shiny details, beading and embroidering on my clothes. My go to shoes use to be gold glitter flats!! But now a […]
So here are some rough pictures of our baby boys nursery. Its definitely not ready yet. I feel like I’m way behind. He could practically come at anytime, and I just got this all done yesterday. I’m currently prewashing all his clothes for him as I’m writing this. Hopefully I can get some better pictures soon. But the “theme” if there is one, is woodland creatures/white with gold accents. I didnt want anything that was super boyish. We are currently renting and unable to paint so I knew the walls would be staying white and I’m a momma on a budget so everything is handmade/painted by me and lovely friend Victoria. She made the three going down the right hand side of the closet. Everything else is hand me down furniture that we are making work! And I’m perfectly okay with that, I dont mind recycling as long as its in safe working condition!
