Some days, you actually feel human. Some days, you actually feel pretty and not where you are just dark circles and baby routines. Today, I feel good which has been something I've struggled with due to having a child with health issues. I think parents sometimes get so caught up in their children, we forget that we are human and more than a Mommy Machine on auto pilot. lol
Lately, I've been that Mom. Surviving hard days with little sleep and struggling with a little one going through a growth spurt on top of sleep regression. I am so proud of the Mom that I am but I am also aware that a Mom Burnout is a thing. lol I've run myself ragged needing a mental break.
I seriously suggest anyone with children or without, find a passion. Find a safe space where you get to relax and let go of daily stress. Find a happy place. Mine lately has been painting and books. Find 30 minutes a day to check in with yourself. Pay attention to your needs. You are more than a super hero, you are human. You need to take care of yourself so you can take care of them!! So take a second when you are struggling and remember, you got this! You're doing an amazing job! You are brave and stronger than sleep deprivation and temper tantrums! Hahaha 💙💙 #selfcare#takeamoment#superheroes#momlife#happyplace#momburnout#parenthood#boymom#mommy#momandson#cuddles#smile
I made up pretty much every excuse in the book today why I didn’t need to workout. But excuses don’t get you anywhere. 🤷♀️ .
The truth is you won’t always be motivated to get shit done. You have to learn to be disciplined. Excuses or results? I’m choosing results. Summer bodies are made during the winter. 😜💃 #onedayatatime#oneworkoutatatime#accountability

She’s small but fierce and her smile can light up a room. How could this little human be 10 months already 😩

Today my son had a long day at Children's Hospital. He had a checkup with his gastro specialist and hasn't gained much weight in 2 months but went through a big growth spurt with length. Little guy needs more calories and have to push to get him to eat more. Can I just say severe milk/soy allergies suck!!!!! Sigh. While it sucks and he has struggled a lot in his 9 months of life, he is so very loved and I'll do whatever I have to for his comfort. For now, that is extra snuggles and an extra nap after being checked over so much today.
Sweet boy, I hope you never forget how loved you are!! You are my heart.. my world. I'm so blessed to have you be mine, even with being extra cranky and throwing up lol I love you little bug! We will get you where you need to be!!! 💙💙💙💙 #milkallergies#boymom#momlife#mommy#momandson#naptime#momstruggles#happyplace#cuddles#babyboy#9monthsold#sweetboy#unconditionallove
Zene moje, moram da podelim sa vama jednu cinjenicu :) Moj sin ima 14 meseci i tek sad je zvanicno prohodao (jeeeeej❤️). Nikada ga nisam forsirala da nesto radi, kada je sa nepunih 4 meseca hteo da sedi, posavetovala sam se sa pedijatrom koji mi je rekao "sve sto sam zeli da radi, pustite ga, nemojte vi da forsirate nesto", i ja sam ga pustila. To nesigurno sedenje je trajalo sigurno do 6 meseca. I iskreno, mislila sam da ce on sve to brze odraditi, medjutim tu je stao. Propuzao je tek sa 9 meseci (ni to nisam forsirala, pokusala sam jednom da ga stavim u taj polozaj, on je pao i udario nosem u pod). Sa 13 meseci poceo je da ustaje uz namestaj, mada se nikad nije pustio niti je hodao, samo ustane i drzi se tu gde jeste. Kada smo bili da primi MMR, pitala sam doktora da li on mozda kasni sa prohodavanjem i tada mi je rekao ono cime cu se sigurno voditi i ubuduce, "Svako dete oseti kada je spremno za nesto. Isto kao i mi, ako nismo sigurni da nesto mozemo da uradimo do kraja, necemo ni pocinjati. Pustite dete da bude dete. Ima vremena kada ce hodati, trcati i padati." Do 22 meseca se TOLERISE neprohodavanje ukoliko pedijatar utvrdi da je sa detetom sve u redu. I evo ga sada, leti po kuci 😂 verujte mi da ga ne stizem 😂
Zato drage moje mame, ne brinite. Svako dete je prica za sebe. Nemojte forsirati nesto ukoliko dete nije spremno za to. Volite ga i mazite, dovoljno je :) ❤️
Da li su vase bebe prohodale i sa koliko meseci?
Da li koristite mozda dubak ili ovu guralicu sa slike?
Da li pomaze ukoliko koristite? . . .
I am packing and going through Jordan’s baby stuff and found this picture. I was only 19 years old and he was about 8 months old. I’m getting baby fever BAD! 🥰 -
✖️Mamas milk bar is closed 🥛✖️
Today marks our last day of breastfeeding. I am SO thankful I have been able to give him premium nutrition 😂 for the last -almost- 11 months. The beginning was rough...but overall such an amazing experience. The connection we’ve made through those special moments together is something I would not trade for the world. I joked before, but being able to breastfeed for this long is something I didn’t know if I was going to be able to do. There are so many emotions that go along with it, especially at first...As new mamas we set our intentions for breastfeeding for as long as possible right? My goal was a year. And my body did it! These beautiful bodies of ours are straight kick ass! Birthing humans, and feeding them...it sure takes the life out of you some days. But it’s such a miracle ✨
Our reasons for closing the milk bar are because he doesn’t seem that interest anymore. We introduced him to formula a couple months ago, he’s been having about 1-2 bottles a day. He seems to be getting more “milk” from the bottle. Cause this mama was done pumping a long time ago! He gets distracted so easily on the boob. He’s more interested in playing and being on the move 🚼
We will focus on giving him lots of food and formula until he’s 1. This is what’s best for us right now in this moment. As I write this I get emotional at the thought of us not having those moments together anymore and that this stage of our lives has come to an end. But I am so grateful for the mama and son connection that we have made. Our bond is strong and our love is stronger ♥️
Made a smoothie bowl with my superfood shake, frozen banana and spinach🥣with my homemade granola on top! And let me just say it was so good!!😋 My superfoods give me my chocolate fix🍫I’ve been wanting today and now I don’t crave any of that!🚫It has supported me and my weight loss over the past year! And had decreased my cravings of high sugary things!👌🏻❤️
