insta-life

Bow c/o Beck and Belle
"My girly momma dreams came true this morning when I put this dress on Mia and watched as she twirled and told me it was a "'eautifuw dwess!" Then she literally threw herself in my arms and gave me a hug when I told her mommy and daddy picked out this dress on our trip last week Eric lived in Mexico for 2 years so it was his idea to pick out a couple little outfits for Mia. It's SO cute seeing a piece of Eric's past that means so much to him on our daughter!"

Family date night!

"It's like she thinks these appointments are for her :) When I told her we were going to the doctor today she yelled, "YAY!" while fist pumpin' the air I can't say I blame her for getting so excited... I love getting the chance to listen to baby brother's heart beat! Everything checked out and we seem to have a healthy, strong babe in the works!"

Because the babymoon trip that Eric and I got to enjoy together can't go unmentioned on the Instagram round up :) I love this man so much!

When Mia dresses herself then smiles at me like that...  

Little moments I don't want to forget::  
The first time Mia put a towel on her head and walked around the house saying "mommy hair!" Then looking in a princess book and saying "It's 'angled!! That's my mommy!" (How will I ever chop my hair after that cuteness?!)  
The moments I hear her singing to herself after we put her to bed through the monitor. Such a sweet little voice! (I love that the songs we are teaching her bring her comfort!)  
The way everything comes to a halt and she lights UP when daddy gets home! He has the same effect on me too, girlfriend! 

 I spy with my little eye... a tiny little Mia who will change the world! Our last night in Mexico we experienced another incredible sunset complete with cotton candy skies- then woke up to a crazy little storm the next morning. Once the lightning/thunder passed I took her to the beach to run around. The clouds were tumultuous looking, the wind was still raging & we were showered with rain drops... Mia looked so tiny/fragile (on both occasions) for this big, crazy world but I quickly realized that her heart is as soft, big & beautiful as the cotton candy skies! She has a personality so fierce that will help her weather any storm that comes her way with more grace & love than I ever could manage myself! I have so much to learn from her!!

I finally subscribed to Chatbooks (use my code "RUKMQR4C" to get your first book free!) and I'm pretty sure that's the reason I've been on a grammin' spree! I love having the little things (as well as the big things) documented and, well? It's a good thing Mia is as obsessed with looking at herself as I am because I'll be filling up these books like no one's business, ha ha! If you want to follow along you can find us at courtbrink
