breakfast 🍓 I posted about these in stories but they were so easy and delicious that they deserve their own square. Jane and Rose just plunked sliced strawberries inside some popsicle molds and then I added vanilla yogurt 👌🏻

We’re ready for you, baby girl 💕
Sometimes something ridiculous pushes you past your approaching limit. It was bedtime and I was DONE. But they wouldn't stop laughing at all the things. Laughing. Right?? Like HOW DARE THEY. I disciplined as if I had just caught them actively trying to burn our house down or something. I heard myself getting mad that they were laughing and the sane part of me was all "CTFD mama, laughter is ok!". But I didn't and I just let that anger take over. It wasn't a proud parenting moment and I went through the standard mommy self-shaming, wondering how I just irreversibly damaged some part of them, before letting it go. I kissed them goodnight and made a promise to myself to try again tomorrow. Hopefully with a little laughter.
Happy Saturday from Fort Sturgeon!We received the best email ever yesterday. A court date has officially been set to make this girl our daughter forever! Ruth Mercy, we’ve prayed for you and love you for years. Long, long before you were even conceived, you were growing in our hearts. A judge can no more make you my daughter than I can tell the clouds to rain. You’re already our girl. But I’ve always loved rainbows and being on the other side of that judge’s ruling will feel really good. Can’t wait for a lifetime of morning smiles and wrinkled nose giggles!
Its been a whole week with hubby being home and it’s going to be awhile before he’s off again for work. Keira goes into a happy frenzy when daddy walks through the door at the end of the day, and his face lights up when he sees her. Such a beautiful daddy-daughter bond! She is such a daddy’s girl, I get jealous sometimes. It’s okay though... • • • • #adventureswithaginger #exploringnature #ourcandidlife #letthembelittle #realdad #motherhoodslens #mumconfessions #memoirsofmotherhood #dadsofinstagram #cultivatingcuriosity #beach #sunglasses #toddlermama #mytinymoments #netherlands #enchantedchildhood #photography #hobbyphotographer #daddydaughtertime #motherhoodunited #fatherhood #myworldinonepicture
Що я хочу вам сказати: зуби то така штука, що ще не відпочив від одних, як лізуть наступні. Ні, ні, я не жаліюся. То ж добре, що в дитини будуть зуби, бо двома нижніми їй не зовсім зручно мене кусати 😉 #Жюстін

It’s been busy the past few weeks and I didn’t get to give a shout out for Father’s Day to this man on SM. ______ You, my David, are such a unique person. You made my dreams come true by giving me a family and TOGETHER, we have the blessing of raising our three girls in a way that I didn’t have the privilege of growing up in. ______ You truly remind me to be humble and be gracious. I’ve seen your sensitive and teachable heart. You care for and love our girls like no other man could. You are so patient with me, even when I’m difficult to deal with. Thank you for reminding me to enjoy life! ______ Happy Belated Father’s Day! I love you, Babe! All your girls adore you, even Bryn! ______ #fathersday2018 #lovinglifelimitlessly #momsmemorylife #memoirsofmotherhood #momswithcamera #motherhoodslens #parenthood_moments #sandiegomom #sdliving #myhusband ❤️
At 5 weeks Noah received his very first, & much needed chiropractic adjustment. 👶🏼 Many people are shocked when I tell them Noah was adjusted, but a baby’s spine lengthens by 50% in the first year of life alone, so you want to make sure your baby is in proper alignment, ensuring proper nerve function, brain function, and symmetrical growth. Believe me, when it was initially suggested that Noah’s fussiness & discomfort could be due to his aggressive birth & that he may simply need an adjustment, we were hesitant & skeptical. However, after doing some quick research we learned that an adjustment delivered to a baby is much different than an adult. A chiropractor applies pressure to the baby so soft it’s like pressing into a ripe tomato 🍅. . ➡️ What can nerve dysfunction from birth trauma look like? • trouble breathing • reflux/frequent spitting up • irritability/colic • difficulty nursing • difficulty sleeping • ear infections • delayed developmental milestones • balance issues • ....the list could go on & on. . Noah’s birth was traumatic because he came SO quickly - I only had to pushed twice & he came catapulting out! When we met him he was black & blue all over & had extremely bloodshot eyes. 😞 He would cry out when we would lay him on his back, he didn’t sleep for more than 20-30 minutes at a time, he was having trouble latching on the right side & was always full of air bubbles. All indications we assumed were associated with colic. We never imagined his alignment was off until I asked for help and was advised he may simply need an adjustment. . Babies heads are twisted coming out of the birth canal, while getting pulled out with pounds of pressure that can cause damage to their tiny, hardly formed bones, muscles & ligaments! A Harvard University pathologist found evidence of spinal injury causing neurological dysfunction in about 90% of babies as a result of the birthing process. 🍼 90 PERCENT! . So with this information we decided to take Noah to Dr. Nate Coffin (909.798.5433) in Redlands... & it was the best advice we have followed! Noah has been laughing, cooing, laying on his back, sleeping for HOURS, & is now an extremely HAPPY baby 👶🏼😃
Well another Friday Night lounging on the couch has me thinking I’ve hibernated long enough and it’s time to get out for a girls night. I honestly can’t tell you the last time I had a night out with some girlfriends & this momma has the itch to get out. Officially with no kids.😌Hockey and gymnastics officially end this Sunday so that means I’ll have Weekends free! Hallelujah.🙌🏻✨. * * * * * * #momsnightout #whoswithme #fridaynightmomlife #momtogs #momswithcameras #throwback #motherhoodslens #ohheymama #thatsdarling #momlife #igersvancouver #timefordrinks #gymnasticsmom #hockeymom #momsohard #inbeautyandchaos #motherhoodunplugged #momstyle #unitedinmotherhood #motherhoodsimplified #athletelifestyle #momblogs #documentyourdays #momhub #ig_motherhood #ohheymama #lifegivingsquares #momsofig #fridaynightfeels #cocktails
Children are not a distraction from more important work, they are the most important work. - C.S. Lewis Sometimes as a mom it can be easy to fall into a habit of complaining. We miss having time to ourselves, being able to just walk right out the door and hop into the car, a quiet home...and I’m sure the list goes on. But when we are so focused on what is HARD or seemingly INCONVENIENT in motherhood, we miss out on incredibly beautiful opportunities. We miss the little moments throughout our day to parent with JOY. To radiate Jesus. To be a guide that helps display the wonderful qualities of our Savior. May we never grow comfortable in coveting a season of life that isn’t attainable. (Honestly, nothing beats being a momma anyways!💕) Instead, let us put on love, lace up our shoes, and build our homes joyfully. Because within those walls are tiny bodies...desperate for Jesus, and quick to soak in everything they hear and see. Yes, it’ll be tiring. Yes, it will take hard work. But it’s not in vain. So give them Jesus. At every possibility, whenever the moments approach, choose to teach them about God. Choose their well-being over your wants. God is right there beside you. And He will give you the strength to parent with joy, if you’d only just seek Him. 💕 “In Your presence is fullness of joy.” Psalm 16:11 #MeetTheKrabills

There are tens of thousands of synthetic chemicals that have NOT been tested or studied here in the US. The air within our homes are more harmful then some of -or most of the industrialized cities A child's immature blood -brain barrier allows greater exposure to chemicals The systems in a child s body meant to detox and excrete pollutants are not yet mature Or fully functioning

The air within your home is more harmful then most of our industrialized cities? Yup! It's true There was a study done ten years ago...so I am sure the statistics is far worse now There are tens of thousands of synthetic chemicals that have NOT been tested or studied here in the US I know this comment is kinda off my subject BUT remember when kids were dying from synthetic pot?! My hippies know what I'm saying...when I say who on earth would die from smoking herb Apparently if it has synthetics you might! Am I scaring you!? Am I driving you mad?! Is this post annoying? GOOD fantastic It is my responsibility to inform!
