insta-life

There were times during my pregnancy that I legit feared "it WOULDN'T be worth it" Everyone kept telling me the pains and discomfort would pay off in the end... but I couldn't imagine the end result. So I had doubts (I also thought I would be pregnant for the rest of my life... Discomfort makes me cray) Here's my proof that "it was SO worth it" I grew that... and she couldn't be more perfect!

 Eric has been trying to convince me to buy a hat for the last 6+ years, and I finally took his advice in Boston! I think I kinda like it :)

 Date night at Tuachan in southern Utah... only the most gorgeous outdoor amphitheater! I forgot how much I love musicals! Such a fun night watching Joseph and the Technicolor Dream Coat with Eric (and listening to my dad play the guitar in the live orchestra)!

Family date night has never been sweeter ;)

Eric set up date night with another couple (their adorable daughter is playing in the background) so I had to document this night, but of course this is the only way we could get Mia in the picture! Eric was so proud of himself for setting this up, "so that I can have friends." HA! It's kind of true though... everyone is moving away :(

 D I V A baby!

 This is how we do splash pads, HA!

Poor Mia has been so sick with a crazy high fever (but she's finally on the mend, yay!) and I haven't been able to get on the computer in the last couple of days (sorry, blog!). I'm definitely not complaining that I've been spending my days cuddling my little love bug (but seeing her so sick is awful!) and I've done lots of stalking on Instagram since my phone is easy access, ha ha! If you want to join the party, follow us at courtbrink
Because I love you guys, I thought I would give you a heads up that I'm in the middle of putting together a super amazing giveaway... so keep your eye out on my IG during these next couple of weeks! ;)

How is it possible that Mia gets cuter in every picture?! Your joy and love in being a mother makes me so excited to be one, too, some day!

Cute Mia pictures always make my morning better :) I'm so glad she's starting to feel better!! And I wish we were nearby and could be real-life friends- I need some!

Amanda Klein said...

Adorable pics! My little man does the SAME thing at splash pads!

Lauren said...

all the pictures of her are adorable, but you look fabulous in a hat!

At swim lessons the teacher tells Elyse to blow bubbles and she always licks it instead! silly kids!

When I was pregnant with Olivia I was certain she would be my only one because no way would this be worth it. But it was! I didn't forget how bad it was, but I knew what I was working toward with my second!

Jamie said...

Found you on IG!

Great pictures ! Have a great weekend!

Haha!! That picture of Mia at the splash pad is so cute!! Great shot!!

Tara said...

Mia is sooo adorable and I hope she feels better soon!

I feel like so many of my friends have moved away in the past year too. We live in a college town, so we might have the most transient ward ever. It changes so much every summer and it's always sad to say so many goodbyes!

Glad Mia is feeling better!!! I hate it when kids are sick. So sad!
Love all the Insta pics! My favorite is her eating ice cream! She is SO happy (and so clean???). Mason always has the best time eating ice cream but manages to bite the bottom so it creates a HUGE mess!
