insta-life

Little moments I don't want to forget: her obsession with the outdoors and the twirling gameThe way she loves to mimick us. Her newest trick she learned from me? Licking her fingers clean after putting food in her mouthThe feeling of her arms wrapped around my leg. She has started doing this in the past few weeks and while it can be stressful as I'm trying to make dinner and she's hanging on my leg, begging to eat what I'm cooking... I know what a treasure it is to have tiny arms and hands wrapped around me, either begging to be held, needing to be near me, or loving me... It is a treasure that I will miss someday! 

 Celebrating 6 years of marriage ;)

 Proof that we had the craziest snow storm on Mother's Day, we got close to a foot of snow!

 "Seriously, mom? You're seriously taking my picture right now?"

 Mia girl was finally upgraded from her infant seat to a big girl seat at 17 months... such a peanut :) As you can see... she either loves it or is totally freaked out by it ;) ha ha!

 Bahaha! Love this sweet girl! Headband c/o Sweet Angel Kreations Shorts c/o Dainty and Lion Moccs c/o Freshly Picked

 Mia fell asleep on the way home from the gym/store. I pulled her out to get some snuggles before I woke her up (so that she'd nap later) but after scrolling IG? I think I'll stay here awhile. Despite my sweaty stink, the groceries that could spoil on my counter, dinner that needs to get in the crockpot and the endless house chores.... I am once again reminded how blessed beyond belief I am to hold my sweet sleeping babe. My heart goes out to all angel mommies. I know that you will hold your baby's in your arms again someday, and until then, I promise to cherish every moment I can with my own little one. Praying for everyone who is need of love and comfort, especially Ryan's parents right now. (I posted this right after I learned of Ryan's passing. What an incredible support system IG can be!) #redballoonsforryan 

Mia's been showin' off some pretty cute stuff for the camera these days, so I've got some fun little videos on my Instagram as well! You can find us at courtbrink to follow along!
