Love to watch him play. He's come so far. From sitting silently and not sure what to do with toys (other than throwing them) to playing with a big imagination. This boy is a story of God's redemption and goodness and we have had the pleasure to witness it. #fosteringislove#holdyourbabies#loveyourbabies
♥️♥️♥️ I think we sometimes forget that our children are tiny humans that don’t come into this world knowing how to manage their emotions or that they don’t know how to be independent. From the moment they are conceived, they are held for a constant 10 months. It’s not in their scope of knowledge to know how to comfort on their own or even be alone. I promise, you’re not gonna “spoil them”, they will learn independence by their needs being met and knowing you’re there in times of need.♥️♥️♥️ @gentleparenting_memes #gentleparenting_memesbook #gentleparenting#attachmentparenting#holdyourbabies#babywearingmomma#toddlerwearing
I love this and embrace this. One minute my daughter is hugging me and telling me she loves me and the next she is snoring in my ear. I'm going to hold her as long as I can, whispering my love for her and kissing her face. My 4 year old teenager won't always want to be held in my arms . #holdyourbabies
"...and she loved a little boy very, very much, even more than she loved herself." Shel Silverstein Owen. The boy that made me a mommy.....something I wanted from the depths of my soul. He is growing up so fast and as sad as that makes me, it's also very exciting to see him grow. He has every inch of my heart. . . . . . . . . #holdyourbabies#shelsilverstein#boymomquotes#myboyhasmyheart
Mother, oh mother, come shake out your cloth! Empty the dustpan, poison the moth, Hang out the washing and butter the bread, Sew on a button and make up a bed. Where is the mother whose house is so shocking? She's up in the nursery, blissfully rocking! Oh, I've grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby, loo). Dishes are waiting and bills are past due (Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo). The shopping's not done and there's nothing for stew And out in the yard there's a hullabaloo But I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo. Look! Aren't her eyes the most wonderful hue? (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo.) Oh, cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, But children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust, go to sleep. I'm rocking my baby. Babies don't keep.💜 BY Ruth Hulburt Hamilton (song for her 5th child )
I’m the mama that is always taking the photos, never in them. I’m definitely trying to remember these moments, because they are truly fleeting. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t washed your hair in a week or don’t even know where your makeup bag is. Stop what you’re doing and take a picture with your babies. This guys is a stage 5 clinger for sure. But I know one day I will hold him in my arms for the last time. They grow up too fast. 😭 #wearallthebabies#hipbabywrap#holdyourbabies @hipbabywraps
Feeling a little crazed today. This time of year is especially busy for so many of my friends and family...we are right there with ya! Banquets, testing, awards, meetings, games, rescheduled games from rain....forms need filled out, field trips, last-minute schedule changes....it can be overwhelming for anyone. Grace spiked a fever...no one has slept in days. Joel and I are taking shifts sleeping with her, and trying to get as much rest as possible. Work...each running our own businesses...Throw this into the mix...it is only the second day of this May Marathon, and I want to throw in the towel. #vacationpleasecome How do you cope? Today, Grace being sick, I couldn't sign her into the child watch at work, so she sat in class with me. I slathered her and Scarlett with Peace and Claming blend, and they shockingly did really well! Other ways we get through: - Give each other grace to make mistakes. Everyone is doing the best they can. - Everyone is getting in to the chiropractor for adjustments. - Kiddos get 1 ounce of NingXia Red at breakfast. - My NingXia includes Endoflex, Thieves Vitality, Sclaressence #dragonweek, and Orange Vitality - Green Tea with Lemon Vitality and Slique Essence. - Super C tablets. - Diffusing 24/7 with essential oils, known for their health and wellness properties. Everything I have been diffusing, I got in my Starter Kit.
