insta-life

Little things I don't want to forget- the way Mia was in total awe of my braids this day. She couldn't stop gasping at them (one of my favorite things she does now!) or touching them! Or the way she holds my phone to her ear then waits for me to say, "hello?!" then laughs so hard in response! Or when Eric is done getting her ready for bed and he tells her, "go find mom" and she comes running, squealing, laughing (usually all of the above) and throws herself into my arms :)

Road trippin' to Arizona!

Swimming. Outside. At 9am? We love you, AZ!

Because tubby time pictures are a necessity!

We aren't ones for celebrating St. Patrick's day, but I made sure to dress Mia in the only green she owns!

I had to share my awesome hair day (minus the fried bangs in front. I got in a fight with the blow dryer, obviously it won) with the IG world because Eric was at work (on a Saturday... yuck!)

Our sweet 15 month old!

Let it be known that my Instagram is fullllllllll of #miagram's. And I've been called out for being selfish because of it..... weird, but true. I don't deny the fact that I'm a proud mommy! This loving girl has a lot of happiness to share and I'm grateful that she touches the lives of many just through a simple photo! So! If you dare to support and follow my selfishness you can find us at courtbrink :)

I have absolutely no idea why posting pictures of your daughter would be considered selfish... because i mean likeeeeee isn't that what Instagram would be for when you have a child? You post pictures of your life... your child is basically your entire life once you're a parent. Those people who said that are psycho!

Caitlin said...

How is posting pictures of your child selfish? If that's the case, I too am pretty selfish, seeing as my girls fill my instagram. Mia is adorable. You're doing us all a favor sharing her cuteness with us.

~Dawn~ said...

Ugh, they are just jealous Courtney!! Your daughter is adorable..and she's your DAUGHTER, why wouldn't you be blowing up your IG feed with her cute face?

Julie said...

You blow up your feed with whatever the heck you want. I'm not a cat fan and two of my friends are doing a picture a day of their cats. I'd rather see kids, ha! :)

Mandie said...

I love this blog. & lil Mia with that adorable lil headband - I want to eat her up! She is so stinkin' cute! :)

Hannah said...

oh, she is so cute! I love those sweet little moments you wrote about, she will love reading that one day I am sure. And it is those little moments that are the sweetest. And I'm not sure how it is selfish for sharing pictures of Mia... I think some might consider it selfish of you not to! :)

Also, thanks for sharing your awesome hair picture. You inspire me to try and make mine half as nice.

Rissi said...

What sweet pictures, Courtney. :)

Sarah said...

love all those little things that our kids do that make our heart melt. I'm always sad to see when something they do that I love goes away, but then it's replaced with something else, so there's that. I need to a)get instagram, b) then follow you so I can see more cute selfish pictures of mia...hehe.

Whatevs it's mostly that you are selfless for letting us all enjoy how cute little Mia is! I love her photos, she has the brightest smile!

Recently Roached said...

She's adorable. Love the little gasps. My babe just started smiling, and I'm pretty sure it's the best thing ever :)

Sara Elizabeth said...

Whoever is hating on you for being such a proud mama needs to stop! Mia is my favorite smile of the day!!

Ech and Will said...

I think it would be selfish of you to not share all those adorable pictures. Your Mia is too cute not to share.

Elizabeth said...

Who ever said you were selfish is crazy. If you didnt share Mia's cuteness, you would be being selfish then!! And I love your hair! Its gorgeous!

Love Always,
Elizabeth

Oh my gosh I can't BELIEVE anyone called you selfish for posting pictures of your daughter! Uh, how about they just don't follow you if it bothers them so much? (Sorry, this makes me feel ranty because I post a photo-a-day of my own daughter on IG!)

Your hair looks fantastic -- didn't even notice the bang whisp until you mentioned it!

Sarah said...

Hope you'll link up Mia's easter basket for the annual blog hop this year!

Taylor Wintle said...

Love all of these pictures! Y'all are the cutest family. :)

Jenny @ Creatively Blooming said...

What would Instagram be without pictures of our kids? I post a whole heck of a lot of pictures of my kidlets too! On another note - where do you get Mia's headbands? They are so cute!

Elizabeth {Chasin' Mason} said...

Almost all my pictures are of my son too! I can't believe someone would insult/comment on that! Keep up the posts girl!

Stacy G said...
