Transparency is difficult some times, especially when you worry about judgement, but I always want to keep it real here so here goes. We're weaning this week. It's not what I had planned. Half of me doesn't want to. BUT I know deep down, it's what we need to do, even if it is hard for me physically and mentally (because drying up with oversupply has currently been no fun). Bodhi on the other hand could care less, he has no preference between his mama's milk or formula. He weaned himself from nursing on May 29. He hasn't nursed since, no matter how many times I've tried. To say it breaks my heart would be an understatement, I loved that bond of feeding my even if he didn't nurse often. I decided this week that it was time for the pump to go too. Watching my baby cry while I was pumping, wishing he would nurse and that I could hold him, but I couldn't because I was stuck hooked up to the pump just to be able to feed him breastmilk it was too much. I've pumped over 411 hours since he was born, which roughly translates to a little over 17 days. 17 ENTIRE DAYS I missed out on cuddles and snuggles with my baby. My baby who isn't staying the same very age long and is growing faster than I ever remember Bella growing. It's not worth it to miss out on that much time that I could have held him to just feed him breastmilk in every single bottle until he's a year old. Yes, breastmilk is AMAZING, scientifically I know formula doesn't come close, BUT breastmilk however miraculous it may be, is also no substitute for a mama's arms and for keeping her baby close and enjoying every moment of their littleness. That's why I'm stopping. Almost 2,000 ounces donated, uncounted thousands more fed to him, and 700-ish ounces in the freezer to hopefully last him awhile to be able to feed him at least one bottle a day of my milk until he's a year old (which is in only 171 days). Even though I didn't make it to my goal of a year of breastfeeding, I'm so stinking proud of myself for everything I've accomplished. 💪🏻💕 Also, in the spirit of transparency, I thought about cropping this photo to not include my mama tummy, but the real me carried and continued in comments

I sometimes joke our might think only daddy held them, snuggled them, played with them as I’m usually the one behind the camera. I love capturing shots of them together (so I can scroll through them and cry ten minutes after they go to bed 😂). Every once in a while I wake up to a picture on my phone from Matt’s perspective. My goodness, I love being their mommy. 💕

Sisters 💖 . These two are the best of friends, even though some days they can’t seem to get along at all! 😜 . Ellie wants to do everything her big sis is doing and Isabella loves playing with her little sis ❤️ . Their bond is one that won’t break and I will forever be grateful for that!

Today’s the day! It’s bittersweet to think this is the last of the Toy Story series. I cried at the end of Toy Story 3 so I know for a fact I am going to cry for this one! 😭 I know I’ve said this before but Bo Peep has always been my favorite, and I can not wait to hear her story. 💕🐑🐑🐑💕 We will be watching the movie later today, who else is seeing it today?!?☁️☁️☁️

We absolutely love PampersUS and they have been the best diaper choice for our family. We have been a PampersPartner family since the triplets were first born, and I love that the Cruisers 360 Fit diaper is made with the same Pampers protection that I have always trusted. Pampers Cruisers 360 Fit diapers have an ultra-stretchy waistband that adjusts & adapt with my triplets every move. These Pampers cruisers360 Fit diapers provide up to 12hrs of protection and keeps my toddlers comfortable and dry. They are super easy to remove because they tear off and make diaper changes super-fast and easy. If you want to unleash your WildChild with Cruisers360 Fit diapers, check out my stories!

🛁Baths and story time • Whenever I get your bath ready, I always find my way telling you a story or commenting on how wonderful our lives our ever since you came into our little family. You’ll smile and I’ll pretend you understood every bit of what I shared. Of course, I’d have to add a little bit of the baby coos to kinda relate to you😉. But at the end of each bath, we have shared something so wonderful and effortless that I cry at the thought that this may end too. Your toes now hit the edge of the baby tub and you kick freely while splashing water at me. You enjoy your baths and rarely cry. I appreciate every bit of the time we have. It’s kinda like our mother-daughter moment. May it be making you laugh, or telling you stories about your big brother or just singing nursery rhymes. These little bits of memories I will share with you when you grow up Gab. For sure🖤 Z motherhoodunplugged motherhoodjourney uniteinmotherhood documentlife parenthoodlife thehappynow motherhoodthroughinstagram momlife preciousmoments livethelittlethings thatsdarling darlingmovent candidchildhood motherhoodstories

"While articles or sermons telling women that we are enough are intended to vanquish self-doubt, perhaps they are misguided. “You are enough” puts the onus back on “you.” It’s a me-centric idea, where we’re called to scrape out every last bit of our so-called inner strength. But pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps is not how we tend to our souls. The more liberating and empowering message we need to hear is this: Christ in you is more than enough. It’s a message that doesn’t hinge on self-reliance, but on God-dependence. It gives us room to discover that he is an all-sufficient God." -Susan Narjala 💓Tag a homeschool mama and shop this wall banner for her 💓at the link in the bio⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️

Our 3 year old is a picky eater, which is tough when we go camping. This last camping trip though we tried something a little different to keep him happy and fed! Not a sponsored post, but I have some totally useful information on cooking up some dino chicken nuggets camp side for those chili dislikingeh hmm, my 3 year old. I also included some other simple kid favorites that go great with camping.

I experienced all of this as a . And in my career. I was emotional. Loud. And all the things women are where men are “assertive and passionate leaders” for the exact same behavior. I thought we’d be past it by now. Yet my son has been called an “instigator” (for looking under rocks and other then doing the same) and he’s not even three years-old yet. We need to change the script. It’s gone on too long. This amazing meme was created by thenyamproject — someone I met recently who has become a true, good friend. We text. We laugh. She is there for me when I’m not doing so good. She’s a wonderful human, and I think you’d love her page thenyamproject

I always tell my how important it is to be protected from the ☀️ and set a good example by always using sunscreen myself! [ ad] Thank you dermae for gifting me these awesome sunscreens! My absolute favorite is the ultra sheer mineral body sunscreen mist. It is super lightweight and the antioxidant-rich formula helps fight free radicals and nourish the skin. Check it out in the links section in my bio! sprouts dermae

Have you ever thought you’d be really good at something then try it and realize you have some serious work to do? 😂 - That was me this morning. I enjoy running a few times a week and I wouldn’t say I’m a fast runner but I can run a good 3 miles without stopping so that’s good in my book. 😛So after dropping the boys off at ocean camp today I thought it would be a good idea to run on the beach. Like in the sand. You guysthat was TORTUROUS 😂 Five minutes in I almost turned around and decided to quitBut I didn’t! - Our body always wants to stay in it’s comfort zone but the truth is- nothing happens there. - You have to push yourself past that point to GROW. - That moment you want to give up and throw your hands in the air is where you have to fight and push through. Business, relationships, fitnessTHATS where the GROWTH happens. - Is this business for everyone? No nothing is for everyone But one thing I always say is ”no great story begins with staying in the same place”. - Get uncomfortable my friends. It is easy? Nope. Worth it? YES!

Getting derailed always starts with something SMALL for me… 💗 Missing one workout 💗 Too much wine or carbs 💗 One day of feeling slightly off Next thing I know, I fall off the wagon and back in my same habits. My idea of “perfection” has always held me back BUT I can honestly say my BALANCE is so much better since finding these programs and I realize that while I may veer off a bit here and there, I can easily (like 21 days easily) get back to where I want to be 🙌🏻 I desperately needed a program with flexibility, and I found it. 💕 No more needing to workout for more than an hour a day (it just doesn’t happen with my schedule) 💕 No more cutting out food groups (yay for built-in “cheat days” for those fun events!) The most amazing part? It feels sustainable. I feel like I can finally just enjoy what's to come without all the guilt and self-sabotage. This isn’t complicated. And it shouldn’t be. This isn’t crazy restrictive. And it shouldn’t be. And this actually feels good. As it should.
