Say Hello to my Women Crush o!! That little madam has stolen our hearts mehn! 🤩🥰❤❤💋👸👸Hey Mamas, welcome to #MummyABants sharing the #JoysOfMotherhood is what we do here on wednesdays and I'm glad to be sharing with you mamas.
Today, we are talking about Post Pregnancy Cravings. I honestly didn't think anything like that existed until I experienced it. After I've had a baby I crave beans and Coffee like it's going out of circulation. I eat a lot of beans and it's funny because beans was never really my favourite growing up. Anyways, I'm currently enjoying my beans and plantain affair but other meals that I was craving during pregnancy, I can't seem to stand them now!
So mamas,  did you also have post pregnancy cravings and what did you or are you craving for post pregnancy?

Earlier tonight Landry pushed my buttons. She has a huge imagination that I love. But I was not happy with her insisting on taping pom poms on the wall as part of the decorations for her "party". Then I took a shower and when I came out she had done this. She filled my water bottle with ice water and a lemon, got me an apple, and had the kneeding fingers ready to work on my back.  God bless our little people who can make our hearts bursts just as quickly as they can make them race! Ha

It blows my mind that I used to get up and “get ready” every morning. But honestly I don’t miss it. At first, when I had Connor, and was just in my yoga pants and spit up tinted t shirts all day, I sometimes just really wanted to do my hair and makeup and wear the cute clothes sitting in my closet. But then I started to really appreciate seeing myself so raw. When I spent my whole day in makeup, I hardly ever saw the raw me. Just a quick glance in the morning before I got ready and at night after taking my makeup off (if I remembered). Up until a few months ago, if I’d catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror I’d sigh at what I saw because who says dark circles under your eyes and undone eyebrows are beautiful? Now, I actually smile at myself when I see my new everyday look because it’s me in this season of life. Still tired, still needing a hot shower, and still falling more in love with the face and body that God created for me 💛

18 years ago today this handsome fella made me a mommy.
💙
What a wonderful journey it has been!  It is hard to believe you are officially an adult now.  I look forward to seeing where life takes you.

Happy 18th Birthday Brendan Patrick!
I love you.

Today shaped up to be a beautiful fall day for a photoshoot!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sorting through my frames, I could not resist but to do a few quick edits.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jasper here, was hands down one of the best babies I've photographed. Laid-back, happy and relaxed. Even through the bitter cold wind gusts!  Almost too easy... 😄
That's the way we like it!

Whoever said work wasn’t fun has NOT hung with us yet! 
It’s all about GROWING.

I waited two and a half years. I put the voice deep inside me off. I let fear overtake me and keep me pinned to place in my life I wasn’t happy.

I was convinced life for me was as good as it gets and “as good as it gets” wasn’t good at all. I had conquered a fake smile from my teens years and it was brought out again when I was 27 to cover up the hurt, pain and deep depression I had sunk into. 
Many say I’m “lucky” to be where I am. That it must be “nice” to be where I am enjoying the stay at home life. I’ll be the first to admit I AM AN AMAZING stay at home mama — I enjoy being with my kids, but LUCKY & LUCK have nothing to do with —the story that is my story. 
My story is unveiled in my book I’m currently putting finishing touches on. But my story is one of know luck but of — ALL GOD! 🙌🏽 Luck didn’t bring me here, luck didn’t help me pay off to-date $19,000 in dr bills for myself, luck didn’t whisper for me to trust where I was going to be planted, luck didn’t bring me into a full time online coaching business, luck sure didn’t bring into my life AMAZING WOMEN who are friends, motivate, love, pray and encourage one another through all parts of life - not just health - All in all more of a blessing. Sorry not sorry that luck sure is heck didn’t get me into the best shape of my life today!

It was all God. It was God through me, within me and his strength is what helped pour out of me every step of the way!! My team Fitness by Faith is amazing! Everyone here is all a blessing and friends in my life!! I am honored to mentor the women and men all by Faith everyday! “It wasn’t luck that brought me here and I won’t follow anything less than God Sized Dreams from here on!” I am beyond excited to see my team growing over the past several weeks and I’m very EXCITED to be opening up beside some of these ladies a group for anyone who wants to take a exclusive look and be a part of a week long group with me and my gang! Take a faith step and sit with us starting Monday to see what it is we are truly all about in this family of real people doing life together as coaches. . .

My favorite part of working from home is being able to go to @target on a Wednesday morning and avoid the weekend crowds 👏
.
Seriously! You will NOT catch me at a grocery store on the weekends! I don’t miss the weekend hustle of trying to run all of my errands, fight the crowds, wait in the lines, and never find a good parking spot 😑
.
This week the girls and I got all of our to-do list done (groceries, chores, even Christmas shopping!) ✅✅✅ so that we can spend the weekend relaxing and take some holiday pics!
. 
How are you spending the weekend?! .

Baby’s: fork mashed baked sweet potato and Ramiro peppers, steamed green beans and hard boiled egg yolk 😋
Yummy 
While my eldest hasn’t finished his beef stroganoff as he felt too unwell, baby decided to have a poop while I was feeding him!

This is my oldest. Six years ago he flipped my world upside down. He has taught me so much about motherhood, about what’s important in life, and also about how parenting can be freaking hard! I am so grateful for him and although we argue most days, he has made me a better person for it 💗 I am tested daily and continually reminded that we all do the best that we can as parents and learn from our mistakes. I am forever thankful for this beautiful soul and all of the life lessons he is bringing me. ✨I look forward to what the future has in store for us next!

I loveeee mornings!! But I wasn’t always a morning person! I used to be able to stay up late at night but not wake up early and now it’s the total opposite! Who knew!😄
.
If you’ve been following my insta stories, you probably know I’ve been working on my blog early in the morning! I love that! With a super active infant and household duties, I realized I hardly got time for my work (blogging)😕 and needed to find ways to prioritize and allocate time for all of this 👩🏻‍💻💁🏻‍♀️
.
In my new blog post I share my experience and some tips on how to be productive while working from home with a baby to take care of! Please do check it out 😊

Swipe to play peek-a-boo with this silly little monkey 🙈

Swipe to play peek-a-boo with this silly little monkey 🙈

I’m not going to sugarcoat it... life has been so hard lately. Since having the babies, my life has just felt like it’s in constant upheaval. Adding two babies to an already crazy dynamic was the most I’ve ever been stretched in my life. I daily feel like I’m falling apart, failing in some way, or unable to do what’s expected of me. .
.
I have to, every morning, lay down my anxiety before Jesus and just tell Him that I’m not enough, I’m not strong, and I feel overwhelmed and it’s in those moments that I can rest in His perfect grace. It really is perfect. When you hit a point in your life where you constantly have to lay down yourself, you see it so clear. He’s always present, as long as I’m willing to give it all to Him. The days I do it all in my own strength end up miserable with everyone crying by the end of the day 😆 Like today, I literally took care of everyone, while they screamed at me constantly, and realized just now that all I’ve had to eat this whole day is a smoothie this morning and a couple pieces of nuggets in the afternoon. .
.
I never care for myself!! It’s horrible! But I don’t realize I’m doing it until I’m D O N E !! Anyone else? I need to learn to put my emergency mask on first (like they tell you on an airplane) and THEN help everyone. God is teaching me so much about myself; how I lean on myself too much instead of Him, how I run myself ragged, how I let stress and anxiety rule my day. .
.
Jesus is teaching me to just B E.  S T I L L! The two hardest words a mom can do 😆. .
.
I’m focusing on moments like this... where big brothers love on little brothers and I’m reminded of how much love there is in this home!
.
. 
What about you guys? Do you struggle with this? What have you learned?

Folding clothes = JOYful (I’m officially old and boring!)

Are you a folder, roller or a throw it in and see what happens Mum?

Folding clothes = JOYful (I’m officially old and boring!)

Are you a folder, roller or a throw it in and see what happens Mum?

Hands up if you can't survive without wine and coffee 🙋‍♀️🍷☕ I must admit, as a tired mama of 2, I tend to consume a whole lot of both (coffee to keep me going all day and wine to keep my sanity in check 😂 kidding, not really 🤭). .
#ad Wine and coffee is known to stain our teeth, but thanks to @MintSmileBarOnline's Home Power whitening kit, I can keep my pearly whites WHITE! Their kit causes zero to minimal sensitivity and it's so easy to use. One session is equivalent to using whitening strips for 7 days in a row! #mintsmilebar #mintbabe

Dream big little one ❤️❤️❤️ We asked Oakley what she wanted to be when she grew up... she said MICKEY... Brad and I looked at each other and said OK! You can be whatever you want to be ❤️ I don’t want her to ever think she has to minimize her dreams or change them. I want her to dream big and strive for her Plan A. I want her to be happy and successful... whatever that means to her. Moms and Dads don’t dim their shine and crush their hopes. If your kid wants to be Mickey then let them be Mickey 😉

"Os homens… a única coisa em que estavam interessados era em bebês homens para dar continuidade a seu nome. Mas por acaso uma mulher não precisava trazer ao mundo a mulher-bebê que mais tarde geraria os filhos? “Deus, quando você irá criar uma mulher que se sinta satisfeita com sua própria pessoa, um ser humano pleno, não o apêndice de alguém?”, orava ela em desespero."
📚
"Estava ficando farta daquele comportamento de dois pesos, duas medidas. Quando as crianças se comportavam, pertenciam ao pai; quando não, eram da mãe. "
📚
"Pode ser que você tenha razão de novo, esposa mais velha. Só que quanto mais eu penso no assunto, mais me dou conta de que nós, mulheres, fixamos modelos impossíveis para nós mesmas. Que tornamos a vida intolerável umas para as outras. Não consigo corresponder a nossos modelos, esposa mais velha. Por isso preciso criar os meus próprios."

Saylor is in the "I might take a nap some days but I might not as well" stage.  We have never put toys in her room because we want to treat it as a place of rest but now im starting to wonder if "quiet time" can include toys.  Do you guys put lots of toys in your kids bedrooms?? .

Happy FRIDAY! It’s been a long week with kiddos on the mend and shots and all the fun daily surprises that come with mom life. But, I’m still in the November spirit of remembering how thankful and blessed I am! I want to draw attention to an amazing group of NYC mamas that I am so happy to have connected with! This #FollowFriday goes out to:

@christinacarusostyle who might just be the most glamorous lady on the planet (and quite possibly my spirit animal)

@ariel.loves who is the sweetest soul that is part mother, part teacher, part friend, part wise owl. Just a bunch of good stuff.

@girlgonechildinnyc who is the definition of “I’m not a regular mom, I’m a cool mom.” She’s also the one that put our whole group together so I’ve come to learn that she’s very inclusive, and if someone is her friend, they’re bound to be good people.

@theverybestbabystuff who reallyyy knows her stuff, and is also totally ambitious and inspiring. She would probably be my Phone-a-Friend lifeline.

@itslauranava who has the sweetest, most calming presence (and her son with the same spirit to match!) You just want to hug them both!

@daniladavidson who is the one you want to open a bottle of wine with and chat to about everything. An amazing open and kind woman!

And I can’t forget the lady behind the lens! @michellerosephoto is the real deal in her craft but also as an authentic friend (who shares my love of cats).

eight whole months with you ♡ when people say they couldn’t imagine life before they had their children, it’s true. i have never been so broken, yet so complete at the same time since having this happy boy. his sweet demeanor radiants to everyone around him and i can’t wait to see how he will change this world! this past month he started to say mama (🎉) and now says it on repeat everyday. we still aren’t quite mobile, but i am 100% okay with that. i will take all snuggles i can get! boston allen, mama loves you so!!

#foodiepost | chuleta frita + arroz con gandules 🇵🇷 • my goodness I haven’t had pork chops since I went to visit my FIL in June. it was first time making arroz con gandules (rice with pigeon peas). Let me tell you it is NOT easy lol. this is nothing like Spanish rice like I’m used to making... this rice takes 40+ minutes and you have to make a foil tent inside the pot, I can’t make this up 😂. I was so worried it wouldn’t come out right but it was so good. same with the pork chops, not only are these packed with flavor, but they are sooooo juicy 💦

Do you send your significant other selfies? .
.
If yes, does it make you feel warm and fuzzy when they respond sweetly? Do they respond sweetly? They fucking better! .
.
If no, what is holding you back?
