insta-life

If you need us, you'll find us here from now until November, ha ha!

This is the outcome when you leave daddy in charge of dressing Mia, and he hands the reigns over to Mia. Those two, oh how I love them :)

We have been blessed in our short two months here in Arizona with some amazing friendships and play dates for Mia. I can't even believe how quickly we are adjusting to this move- all thanks to the amazing people who have taken the time to befriend us and make us feel loved!

This is about as crazy as we got for St. Patrick's day... a special green drink for Mia! She only had a few sips because she's not used to the "bubbles" but man, she loved it!

We have officially phased out of footie pjs because it's just too hot, & will only get hotter, but the cuteness of these pj sets are definitely making the transition on my momma heart easier! Ask me how hard it is to get her to change into real clothes each morning... Or if I can get her to change at all... 

 I promised this girl a day at the pool but Mia woke up too sick to go, so I let her swim in our tub instead. Happy baby = mom win!

 "Mia, do you remember when you used to be mommy's little baby?!" M- "Yeah! I do!" "You do?!" M- "I do! I cry... Wah" (hahaha) I have no idea where she came up with that. I miss my little baby Mia (who actually hardly ever cried) but this toddler Mia is super fun & makes up for growing up too dang fast!

I kind of pulled away from posting a lot on Instagram during the month of March. I'm not really sure I can chalk it up to one specific reason why, but I've moved on and I'll be back to sharing little squares of our life in full force (beware.... ha ha!) I just love having a space to share our happy little moments (as well as the sad or frustrating ones) and the fact that I can have them printed into little books? The best! I don't want to hold back because of a following, or worrying what people will think, or whatever the reason! My Instagram feed will be full of our day to day life and the people I love most, and I'm not going to apologize for it or hold back from sharing what I want to share. So- if you want to follow along, we'd love to share our moments with you! You can find me at courtbrink!

Mia is such a little water baby. And I'm glad you're making friends in your new city!! My mom and I might plan a girl's trip to AZ so I'll have to let you know if we do (although not sure if it's near where you are...) !!

Jealous of all your pool time already!! That's the best!! It's SO great that you're already making friends at your new home - that's one of the bardes parts! Miss Mia is just the cutest!!

I always struggle with what to share on Instagram or on my blog. I always see the comments that are left on celebrities' social media posts. People can be mean on the internet! But I admire that you are going for it. These are memories you will cherish for years.

So much Mia love! I love your Instagram!

I love seeing family pictures and everyday life on IG, I like the artsy ones too, but I like the real life stuff better :)

I think everyone goes through the struggle of thinking that they are posting to much on insta! I feel like I go days with posting nothing and then one day I post like 30 pictures within 10 minutes...I love seeing my feed filled with all my fav bloggers kiddos...you can never post to many cute pictures!

OMG girl, she is such a little water baby! I love it! She is getting so big and pretty! She's such a little cheeser too, adorable! You can never post on Instagram too much. It's YOUR Instagram, if someone doesn't like how much you post well, who cares?

Ha, love when Dad's dress the babes. Conor does a pretty good job, but typically I set out clothes if I'm not going to be the one to dress him! ;-)

I'm sure I am just blind and didn't notice but when did she get that adorable little bob hair cut?!?! I'm LOVING it! And love it pulled back too with those bangs.
You guys are going to have a blast at the pool this summer!!!
