It was not easy. I could count the peaceful nights on the fingers of one hand. But was worth it. They make me happy.

I’m fairly certain we have a nasty case of RSV running rampant in our house... . It’s been an exhausting two days. Both girls need so much love, cuddles, laundry done, noses wiped, diffusers replenished, remedies administered, temperatures taken frequently, and tucked in...then retucked in 75 million times at night. . Mom and dad are exhausted to say the least. I am nearly 35 weeks pregnant and my poor husband hasn’t caught up on sleep from working several double shifts last week to support our growing family. . Sh*t is REAL and hard right now.. . But God is so good and even in the midst of a really rough few days, I am reminded of how blessed I am to be the one home and taking care care of my babies. It is a blessing to be married to a man who so selflessly steps up to help and care for his girls anytime, anywhere. It is a blessing to have a cozy home for my sick and tired family to rest and relax. . Finding the silver lining isn’t aways easy, but I’ve found that by leaning into God and giving it all to Him and by making sure my house is never short on coffee ☕️😉...we can survive and power through just about anything together as a family. . Has your fam been hit with the respiratory crud yet this year? What are your best remedies?

That’s it, I can’t eat in peace anymore 😫 whenever she spots me chewing, my food is her food now 😂 ⠀ @whoadough_ sent us these cookie dough bars and who even can say no to cookie dough am I right? Except these ones are plant-based and gluten free, designed to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings! My favorite was peanut butter ones (no surprise here, I’m a big peanut butter enthusiast) 😋 ⠀ What is your favorite treat and were you able to find a healthy swap for it? ⠀ #sponsored #hellowhoadough

Thankful God gave us a son with a servant heart. He’s been flipping pancakes for our Church family all morning, setting up chairs and just serving the people around him. Just a heart full of love this morning for the little miracles we get from God. How do you nurture your children to serve?

This seems to happen whenever I have to drive my husband’s car. It drives me nuts and he knows it. 😖 I used to fill up my car whenever it got down to about a quarter tank. I’ve gotten a bit better over the past few years, but I will never let it get this low. Does this picture give anyone else anxiety? • • • • • #drivingonempty #annoying #myhusbandiscrazy #mommysdoingherbest

All my deployment feelings are going in a box in a far away shelf and will be processed a little at a time with my therapist. I’m ordinarily the type to face my feelings no matter how much they hurt but if I do that with this, I will truly be swept under. So in a box they go, and I’m reminding myself of all I have to be happy about. We took this picture in Sister Lakes, MI two summers ago. We’d just found out we were pregnant and were very happy. I will be okay. This will be okay. #momtruth #lifeasamama #motherhoodunited #mynameismama #storytellingmama #mymotherhood #thisismotherhood #momlifebelike #thatmomlife #realmotherhood #motherhoodjourney #motherhoodbliss #postpartumanxiety #deploymentsucks #milspo #postpartumjourney #honestmom #justmomlife #mymamahood #motherhoodintheraw #mamaneedsabreak #honestlymothering #armywife #candidmotherhood #mamalife #realmomlife #momstruggles #milspouse

• C H R I S T M A S I S C O M I N G • I’ve been quite silent on here for a week or so, I’ve just been so tired and needed to concentrate on life! I’m still feeling pretty rubbish l, just getting over a cold and I’m reducing my meds which was always going to be a challenge! We’ve had some challenges as a family unit but hopefully things will only get better now. I’m totally committed to making sure Milo has THE best Christmas! I know it’s not his first Christmas but last year he was a little dot who slept through it! I was dreading putting the tree up but bless him, he’s hardly touched it! What an angel!

Is this you? 🙋🏼‍♀️😅... . . A pregnant woman’s food preferences are at once the most alarming thing in a plate and the most hilarious event in food history. Her pregnancy cravings can have you questioning her sanity. It is simply inexplicable! Even you, the culprit, cannot understand why you want what you want, and why you want it so badly. Studies show, though, that it could be just your body craving a particular nutrient. But how do you put a lid on excessive weight gain?

🎄M a g i c a l🎄 Love these little moments with my Evy❤️As she gets older, these are the moments I’m going to look back on and cherish the most. She had so much fun last week and we can’t wait to take her back so we can explore the rest of the light maze. Maybe this time, she’ll tolerate Santa 😂. I love my girl so much! What moments do you cherish the most? . . @enchantchristmasdc @enchantchristmas @thebrandguild #enchantambassador #enchantchristmasdc #enchantchristmas #dcevents #marylandevents #washingtondc #dmvarea #dcblogger #marylandblogger #mommyblogger #motherhood #canoneosr

We aren’t parade people, but for the last few years we’ve started coming to #theavenueparade because Alex was in it, and now it’s a tradition we look forward to each year! Do you have any traditions that you’ve started unintentionally, but totally love?⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ————————————⁣⁣⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Side note - if you’ve been on the fence about getting #THEjacket, I suggest you do! It’s warm, it keeps me dry in the rain, it feels like I’m wearing a sleeping bag, and it still looks chic. Probs gonna get another! ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ————————————⁣⁣⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #theavenueatwhitemarsh #avenuechristmasparade #founditonamazon ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #momunity #momsquad #realmotherhood #motherhoodthroughig #lifeasamama #mommystatus #motherhoodjourney #mommymode #motherhoodrising #slowmotherhood #messy_motherhood #literalmomgoals #ohheymamas #mamahoodinsquares #honestmomconfessions #mymotherhood #connectingmoms #mamahood #momslivinghappy #Amazonfashion #thatmomlife #dailymotherhood #momsirl #momcrushmonday #theeverymom
