My heart is full ❤ So blessed to be @loveforlewiston tonight to celebrate this little man. .
.
I enjoyed my time out and despite my heavy eyelids from staying up last my 10pm bedtime, I secretly hope Baby E wakes up soon and needs his mama. Cuz I have some cuddles that need a home. .
.
Nothing is guaranteed you guys. Love hard. Laugh as much as you can. Find joy in the everyday. Thank you @jsjanzen for sharing your journey and your son. We are better for it.

Do you get to do work you love? I am so thankful this business has given me an outlet to create and connect with amazing people like you. .
.
These custom molded bars for Boss Babe @brazzenbombshell are the perfect example of that. She trusted me to try something totally different than what I usually do. The experience stretched my mind and taught new things and in the end I think they turned out beautifully.
.
.
I hope you seek out something small today that helps you grow and feeds your soul ❤

WOMAN CRUSH WEDNESDAY 💪
This is my great grandma at the turn of the last century. Astride a horse. In pants.
.
.
From what I am told, she was a powerhouse. This epic photo seems to stand as proof. .
.
When you know where you've come from, it helps you to better understand who you are. I love that my maternal bloodline is full of strong, intelligent women who worked hard, raised families full of love and pushed the envelope when it needed a shove. .
.
Now it's your turn... Tell me allll the stories about the fearless women who have inspired you!

I'm clearly late to the party. But just in case you are too, this blanket from Lindsay @thelittlemilkbar_ is my new favourite. Nothing says, "Ima feed my baby where and how I want to" quite like a blanket covered in boobs 😂😂.
.
.
BONUS GAME: find your pre and post-baby boobs in the print. Remember what they used to look like...
.
.
Let's hear it for the innate sense of humour that comes with motherhood!

You guys yesterday was hard. Like, cry in the bathroom when no one was looking hard.
.
.
Mr H decided the best thing ever was to liberally sprinkle blood curdling screams into all of his daily activities. All while while being contrary and laughing like a maniac. That would be challenging enough on its own but with a new baby in the house it made for a bit of a gong show. Sprinkle in a less than desirable amount of sleep from a 4AM wake-up call and VOILA! I'm sure we would have been quite the spectacle 😆.
.
.
I know I'm not special and a lot of parents have these days. The days when you jam what seems like a thousand hours into a single morning. When you look at the clock expecting it be lunchtime and it is only 9AM. It got better but those first few hours had me questioning EVERYTHING about how I parent and just generally feeling inadequate. .
.
That night we put him to bed and a few hours later he woke up with the "sleep sads" as I call it... He was calling out for his mama. So up I went. There he was, standing in his crib with his arms outstretched. I went over and wordlessly picked him up. He wrapped his legs around my waist and his arms around my neck. He nestled his face into my hair and promptly fell asleep. Suddenly my big boy was my sweet tiny baby again. I held him for MUCH longer than I needed to before I reluctantly put him back in his crib. .
.
Today he still screamed and tested limits but my heart was full and I was ready. Our family played and adventured and ran until he was so tired he almost fell asleep in the tub. And my wild, sweet, mischievous, loving boy happily went to bed. I bet if you look, there's probably still some ice cream in his hair lol.
.
.
Some days are really rough. But he is still so little. I'm thankful for the sweet moments where he reminds me of that. He will be grown up before I know it and I want to savour every day I have with him ❤

Our house produces a sh@*tonne of diapers. Literally 💩👶 Our toddler is almost potty trained (cross your fingers for us!!) but still wears diapers to sleep in and to catch accidents and our 4 month old is, well, just at the beginning of his diapering adventure.
.
.
So for the past two weeks, I have been saving up our diapers in compostable bags. Seeing them all piled up like that made me realize just how many we actually use. Eek! Thursday morning @soileddiapers came by to do their first pick-up on the same day the city gets our garbage. It felt so good knowing THAT much waste will be composted instead of adding to the piles at the landfills every two weeks. If you haven't checked them out, do it!
.
.
Have you started doing anything differently to make less waste?

"Belly Birth" is the new term for birth via C-section. I kind of love it. What do you think?
.
.
The term is intended to validate and empower Mamas whose babies had a surgical entry into the world. Especially given there can be a lingering perception that a vaginal birth is something you accomplish whereas a C-section birth is something that is done TO you. .
.
I never felt troubled by how my babies came into this world. Quite the opposite. That said I know it is a difficult pill for many Mamas to swallow. That's maybe one of the reasons why I find this new term so exciting. Because now there are words that accurately reflect the amazing accomplishment that is bringing a baby into the world. .
.
So to my ladies, whether you had a "natural" birth or a belly birth, your story is perfect and so are you ❤

Does anyone else feel obligated to eat leftovers no one wants? The other night, my kids were in bed and hubby was out so I ate cold chicken ragoût straight out of the tupperware. .
.
Today was like that too. Only the leftovers I was FORCED to eat: triple chocolate cheesecake. What can I say? I'm a martyr.

What an amazing Mother's Day treat! Turns out I'm EXCELLENT at eating macarons and meringues. Now to discover if I have a mystical talent for being fabulous at yoga without any practice. I think not, but it will be fun to confirm.
.
.
Thank you to @livyogayyc for the yoga passes and @prettysweetyyc for the delectable sweet treats. And thanks to @whitewillowwearables for the entry ❤.
