4 Mama + Kiddo Matching Outfits You Need For Spring & Summer

Y’all, I used to say that I would never match my kids. I’m talking literally match every single thing, and I don’t! I have recently found some super sweet outfits from brands I love that I wanted to share that coordinate and in my opinion, are just meant to go together. I posted a photo and had so many questions about where I found my outfit and the kiddos’ outfits and about sizing and what I’m into this season so I figured I’d share! I’m totally feeling the summer and vacation vibes with these so here we go…

Our First Family Photos In Years!

Who here for some unknown reason does the same thing I did and NOT get any family photos for years?  Years?!  Yeah, I’m totally guilty of slacking which is strange since I literally take photos every single day, take photos on the side of clients, and just adore capturing our lives.  One of the big reasons I haven’t wanted family photos is because I’m not secure with the way I look but I’ve had enough of that.

The Truth About Your Second Child

I remember when I was pregnant with Brody and hearing so much that the second time around the baby doesn't get as much attention, parents don't take as many photos, parents put the kiddo in daycare sooner... all kinds of things that people were semi joking about showing how much more protected parents are of their first baby.  There are even those commercials showing the Mom handing her baby to an oil covered mechanic and her toddler standing next to her but showed how spotlessly clean she was with her first baby, haha!

Putting Motherhood First + Slowing Down

Sometimes it's so hard to slow the heck down and take time out for you.  Whether that means you and your babies or you as a person being alone, you need time, we all do!  I know that Brody is our last little one so I've started to have a love/hate relationship with all the new things he's been doing.  I love that he is becoming so independent and expressive but I also hate knowing that all of his firsts are now all of my lasts.  It really makes me want to cry sometimes, just, please time-slow down!

Baby Fever!

Why is it that once you become a parent and your baby is a year or two old, you start wanting another one?!  Is everyone like this?  No, just me?  I know I'm not alone.  Scott and I are extremely fortunate seeing as how we have had two uneventful pregnancies and overall two good births, and two amazing and healthy little ones.  Brody is 15 months old now, Emily is almost three and a half and the baby fever has set in yet again.

A Simple Toddler Snack They'll Love

Fun fact: Did you know September is National Honey  Month?  That's right, an entire month dedicated to this natural yumminess that kiddos love.  Here in the Midwest it's starting to feel a lot like Fall which for me includes lots of chunky sweaters, boots, outdoor fun, cuddling, and lots of golden moments I want to remember forever.

Quality Time Is All They Want

Emily is at the age where she really likes to pretend play.  I just love seeing her imagination at work, it's seriously the sweetest thing.  I asked her if she wanted to have a tea party and of course she said yes.  I love allowing her to "learn by doing" and this was no different.  She chose what plates, bowls, cups, silverware, and what food to have our tea party with.  I told her it was supposed to be with pretend food but she had her own plans for that!
