A couple of weeks ago, I challenged you all to be on the look out for magical moments in the midst of the mundane moments of your day. I hosted a challenge on Instagram with the hash tag: #magicinthemundane and I had so much fun seeing what each of you captured. It was so hard to pick my favorites, because there were so many great moments to choose from (there were nearly 400 photos under the hash tag!). Here are 25 of my favorites, but I hope you’ll check out the others under the hash tag over on Instagram, because there really were so many great ones. Thanks to all of you who joined in and made this a fun challenge!

When the newest member of your family arrives, it can be easy to get lost in all the minutiae of caring for your little one – but there are magical moments to be found in all the little details. Each month I feature one mom sharing her magical moment of motherhood. This month, meet Charlotte and her one-year old daughter Lilah as they celebrate a huge milestone they were able to catch on video: baby’s first steps!

A week from now Lola will turn 9 months. 9 months! The day before yesterday I had a moment where my head was racing with all of the things I had to do and then something came over me and said “Stop. Just hold your baby.” So I did. Instead of putting her down after she had fallen asleep in my arms I stared and got lost in her eyelashes, her chubby fingers, and the two top teeth that are on their way down.
I reflected on all of the things Lola has done in the (almost) 9 months she has been with us, each one of them so special given the fact that we still pinch ourselves wondering if this is all real. My little firecracker is on the move; she’s reaching and rolling like crazy. What she isn’t doing is crawling.
