I have a few very specific moments in my life where I can remember, even a a very young age, thinking- I need to freeze this. I need to freeze how I feel and put it somewhere deep inside me forever. The first time I ever did this, I was 5 years old and it was the day of my very first gymnastics meet. We were at the swimming pool and I had about an hour before we were going to leave and go get ready for the meet. I was in a lawn chair beside the pool, beads of water were beginning to slowly dry up from the hot sun blazing down on me. Not a cloud in the sky. I can remember looking down at my toes, dangling over the edge of the chair & thinking “I want to remember this moment for the rest of my life.” I wanted to remember the nerves, the excitement, the pride- I wanted to freeze a piece of it and carry it always.

DB Style: Sunshine Girl.

I have called both of my girls my “sunshine girls” since they were born. They represent such light in my life! Disney Baby has such an amazing variety of clothes that all of my kiddos adore. Lately, with spring & summer approaching I have been especially drawn to bright spring colors! So in honor of my sunshine girls, a fun Disney Baby slideshow!

Spring Break Favorites.

Spring break changes a bit when you become a parent. Lounging at the beach becomes a little more adventurous with a little one around! But making these sweet memories with our little ones is such a treasure and the time is fleeting! Some of my all time favorite road trips and spring break memories include my babies! Here is a journey through my favorite spring break memories with a baby!

L.A.U.G.H.T.E.R.

When I think about my childhood or when I think about my own children, one of the first words that comes to mind is LAUGHTER! Sweet giggles with our babies, innocence, happiness, pure delight. Some moments my stomach hurts from all the giggling! Little ones will do that to us won’t they? It’s nearly impossible to not break into a gigantic smile when you meet a baby eye to eye! Especially if it’s your own!

I thought it would be fun to journey through a few words that I would use to describe motherhood, babies and this amazing journey we are all on!

an afternoon outside.

Sometimes a day outside is just what you need. For me, with three little ones, many days an afternoon outside is like balm for my mind and heart. It breathes life and refreshment at just the right moment. We pack everything we need, grab our stroller and head out. We head away from responsibilities for a few hours. We leave the phone in the bottom of the stroller and step away to clear our minds and soak in our little ones. Being a parent is a big job! And sometimes a nice afternoon in the beautiful sunshine is just what you need.
