Family is one of the most important things in the world- right next to O2 and H2O. I’m having a lot of fun being a relatively new mom and raising one of my own, here are some shots from when I took the kids out the other day…

It’s amazing how much one’s world changes when they go from being an only child to living in a house full of people. It took some time adjusting to the constant noise and random sounds arising from other parts of the house but now that I’ve grown accustom to it, I wouldn’t change it for the world. Sure, there are times when I just wish I could run out to the store by myself, or hell even go to the bathroom by myself for once would be nice, but the pros definitely outweigh the cons.
In our family of 4.5 we have a mama & dada, a big sister & one little brother. Until next month that is, when we’ll be welcoming another little brother to our gang. I’m still trying to wrap my head around it, I have no idea how I’ll handle a 4 year old demanding something from me all the time, a 1 year old that still thinks he’s a tiny baby and wants to be held like one all day long, and a newborn crying for milk every couple hours. But like with all things, it will work itself out.
There are days where I just want to check out. Grab my keys and hit the road… Alone. Crank up the volume on my stereo, roll down my windows and fly down the highway at 95mph like I used to do too frequently in my pre-motherhood days. But then there are times where I’ll happily turn down any fun, social event because I’d much rather spoon with my babies on the couch & watch a kiddie movie with popcorn and ice cream on hand. Overall I really enjoy the parenthood life, it comes with days full of surprises and excitement, and of course noise. I might be considered one of those nerdy moms by saying this, but dressing my kids alike and coordinating our outfits is probably one of the smallest yet greatest pleasures being a mom brings me. We are a family, and coming from a home where I was the only kid, I think it’s so much fun to all look alike.
Anytime I dress the kids I try to put them in the same color, and when I saw these statement tees I literally squealed out loud with excitement. Everyone knew we were a family when they saw us out & about that day, it was really cute. I love The Blue Envelope, they have tons of tees like this to chose from and they’re all made of an extremely soft material. They have nurse tees, teacher tees, number tees and so much more that mark a milestone or role you or someone you love can really appreciate. They make the perfect gifts, you can browse they’re entire collection to see what I’m talking about here.
I’m also announcing the winner of my Instagram Giveaway later today so if you entered, keep checking back to see if you won! And just an FYI, I’ll be hosting another Instagram giveaway for a pair of Freshly Picked baby moccasins on June 15th! I hope you all have a nice Thursday, it’s almost Friday folks relax. 😊
