Accepting the Journey

The past 4 months have been a whirlwind. To be honest it has not been easy. Since having martin & Leia I have had to learn who I am again. The past three years i have been pregnant twice, had 2 c-sections and have nursed both my babies (im currently only nursing leia). So now that im almost 5 months postpartum, and done having babies, i literally have to reset my mind and body. Now that i have a new purpose, I have come to terms with understanding that im not the same person I was before having kids. I have evolved, I have changed, i have become better. My thoughts are different, my responsibilities are different and my life has a whole new meaning. i know that everything i do now will impact who my children become. am i setting a good example? am i being a good teacher? am i being the best version of myself for them?

the crazy thing is life moves so fast and we try to catch up not realizing that if we slow down and take in everything one step at a time we will see more of who we are and only than can we change things and become better. Because I want to be the best version of myself for my kids and my husband, I must take the time to love myself, know who i am and take care of myself. Making the effort to take the time to do these things can seem hard and overwhelming but i know that I am strong and determined.

Everything we do in life is a journey we just have to accept it and keep going. The beauty of a journey is that even though there are bumps along the way and you cant see the road ahead, there is always a refuge, and a strength that only God can give. God has definitely been my help in the time of trouble. When i feel like i cant, God tells me that i can, when i feel alone, God lets me know that he is right there and that he see’s me. God has given me the confidence in accepting who i am and accepting the path he has placed in front me. Im excited to be moving forward and seeing amazing things ahead.

whether your a mom or just on a life journey, i would love to know your experience! Everyone’s journey is not the same… thats the beauty.

Weekend Recap : Mothers Day

Happy Tuesday Mommaz!

I hope you had an amazing Mothers Day! Mine was super chill which i loved. My Husband treated me and I got my nails done and i had to get my eyebrows (they havent been done since having Leia). Of course we celebrated our amazing mom who is the best person in the world.

Honestly im just so thankful to have the life that I have. God has blessed me more than abundantly. He has given me an amazing husband , beautiful children, a wonderful family, and to top it off im able to stay home with my babies and watch them grow.. I wouldnt have it any other way!

Here are a few pics of my weekend.

10 Months: A Little Update

Baby Martin

WOOOOWW!!! How time as flown. I cant believe me and hubby have been parents for 10 whole months to the most beautiful baby boy. Is it crazy that it feels like its been longer?

I feel like at any moment im going to turn around and baby boy will be 18. OH MY! Life has been so busy the past 10 months but a good busy. Little Martin started crawling at 6 months, I completed my nursing journey with him and he is now on organic formula. We started him on baby food at 7 months and he stands on his own but hasn't started walking yet (hes almost there!). 

Little Martin is way over 22 pounds Im sure, he grows out of his clothes daily (LOL, he talks and makes funny noises which is the cutest thing ever... but being able to watch him grow has been the best experience. Im so blessed that im able to be at home with him and watch all of these different processes happen. 

Being a parent and raising a little one isnt easy at times but we have the best family that supports us, babysits, comes over to play (i no longer matter LOL). Seriously i couldnt ask for a better family. My hubby is literally the best and such an incredible DADDY to little Martin. I love seeing Martins eyes light up when Daddy comes home because he knows its time for some serious play time. We were also able to enroll Martin in swimming classes!! He is doing so well and enjoys every minute. Its also fun Daddy and baby time! 

Hope you enjoyed this little update more to come!
