Wishing this handsome man a happy Fatherโ€™s Day ๐Ÿ’•
.
From gym partner to best friend to love of my life to best Daddy in the world ... you have been many things in the past few years to me, and now to Fenley. ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ง
.
You make her laugh the hardest, youโ€™re the person she asks for most often, whenever my phone rings she says โ€œDada?!โ€ and gets a look of excitement in her eyes. She sleeps the most soundly on your chest. She is so incredibly lucky to have you in her life, babe. Happy 2nd Fatherโ€™s Day. ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ”’

Yesterday Fenley & I had a mommy-daughter date. We just went for a walk and sat by the water watching the little birds and the ripples in the water. ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿ’ฆ
.
Fen had never been directly on grass before (we always lay out a sheet in the backyard) and was fascinated by the blades of grass, of course she wanted to yank it all out lol ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฌ
.
Anyways, we were having a lovely time and I got a bunch of cute pictures and we were walking back to the car, and a bird pooped in my eye. YES you read that correctly. I got bird poop in my eyeball. ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ’ฉ I wish there was a seagull emoji because Iโ€™m pretty sure that was the a-hole responsible for the heinous act. ๐Ÿ˜ก
.
I will spare you the disgusting details but letโ€™s just say it was not a great day after that. My eye still hurts today, but itโ€™s much better than it was. Itโ€™s a fresh, new morning ... so Iโ€™m planning on taking Fen for another walk today and praying I donโ€™t come across any animals with a grudge against me ๐Ÿ˜‚โœŒ๐Ÿผ

My little beauty was absolutely exhausted after todayโ€™s activities! She was a trooper and missed her a.m. crib nap so we could get to the ALS walk in time. She only car napped for 20ish mind ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ดโ˜•๏ธ

Now sheโ€™s zonked hard ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’•

Time for this mama to clean up the dinner mess, do dishes, water plants, wash floors, laundry, shower, and then relax before bed ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ‘ฝ

Love that Young Living has some oils specifically diluted for children so they are safe to use directly on skin or if you have a crazy oil sniffer like Fenley ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿคฃ

This little babe & I went on a very windy walk today and got rained on ๐ŸŒง๏ธ
.
I was ready to turn around & go back inside as soon as I realized how gloomy it was outside but to my surprise, Fen loved it! Being cooped up inside has us both going a little bonkers, so out we went โ˜บ๏ธ
.
She cracked little smiles in between mean mugginโ€™ and we sang and walked around the block. I may have gotten a few strange looks from people driving by. (โ€œWhy is this crazy lady laughing hysterically and talking to herself, and why is she walking her little baby out in the rain?!โ€) ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜œ
.
I love my little adventures with Fen. She makes my life brighter, my days better, and my rainy walks more memorable. โค๏ธ

Behind every perfectly posed Instagram picture is the mess. The clutter that you donโ€™t want the world to see. Donโ€™t be fooled by the highlight reel that you see when youโ€™re scrolling through your newsfeed ... ๐Ÿ˜‰
.
Every morning I clean up a huge breakfast mess, and itโ€™s perfectly clean for about 3 hours until lunch. The toy room is organized every night and a disaster zone by 8 am. My child sometimes has food on her face, or uneven pigtails ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ณ
.
Do I want to showcase this stuff all the time? No. Does it happen everyday? Yep. Am I okay with it? Yep. This is real life! Arranged pictures of food, and perfect shots of Fenley that take 20393725282 tries to get are great - but I also like these pics. The mess. The clutter. The real. โค๏ธ

Hi guys! Id like to tell you a bit about these two besties right here ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ•
.
Little miss Fenley is almost 14 months old. She has two teeth, can almost walk (she has taken 3 steps before falling), loves food, and weighs 21+ lbs. Shes in 12-18 months clothing and sleeps like a champ through the night. That being said, she thinks 6 am is the perfect wake up time, so mama is usually a zombie ๐ŸงŸโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ด .
Kaden is 13 years old and livinโ€™ his best life. He gets lots of people food every day ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ”๐Ÿฅ“๐Ÿฅž๐Ÿง€๐Ÿณ, gets walks sometimes when his hips are feeling okay, and sleeps about 18 hours a day ๐Ÿ’ค heโ€™s extremely patient with Fen, and puts up with getting his lips yanked, ears twisted, skin pinched, hair pulled etc. He wants to be in the nursery with her at bedtime while we read stories and lay with her whenever he can๐Ÿ’• .
There is so much love between them, and Iโ€™m extremely grateful Fenley has this time with him. Heโ€™s such a beautiful soul. There will never be another dog like Kaden โœจ

I want to remember this moment. Insanely tired & emotionally drained. She woke me up early & was being difficult this morning, pulling my hair and pressing on my boobs as she climbed all over me, hurting me over and over. Screeching and whining, which aggravated my headache. Then when I was at my wits end of frustration & ready to burst into tears, this happened. She passed out on me. Safe & relaxed in my arms. This is sooooo rare, Iโ€™m extremely grateful that sheโ€™s sleeping on me right now. Always a silver lining ๐Ÿ’• itโ€™s going to be a hard day today, but Iโ€™m going to search for the little positive things & hold on to the love. Sometimes, thatโ€™s all you can do. #fenleyarya

Sheโ€™s such a little Daddyโ€™s girl lately, it melts my heart ๐Ÿง”๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป

The second she woke up this morning, her eyes snapped open and she said โ€œDada!โ€ then she proceeded to sit up in the crib and say โ€œDada Dada Dadaโ€ for the next few minutes until I went in and got her. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’•
.
He is the best at making her fluffy scrambled eggs, he tosses her the highest, he dances the funniest. No wonder sheโ€™s obsessed with him ๐Ÿ˜ @richierage ๐Ÿ˜

itโ€™s been an exhausting, incredibly stressful past 2 days with this little one ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
.
Yesterday we had to do infant X-rays to check for a foreign object in her lung. If youโ€™ve never had to go through that with your baby count yourself blessed โค๏ธ
.
Today we had a follow up with the Paediatrician and he said it doesnโ€™t look like there is any foreign objects in her lung, however she does have a lung infection and borderline pneumonia. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ’”
.
This took 4 Doctor visits, 3 calls to 811, and us pushing to be seen by a different Paediatrician to get diagnosed. ๐Ÿคฏ what the heck. Seriously, what the heck?๐Ÿคฌ
.
Advocate for your babies. Be pushy. Demand to see a specialist. You know when something isnโ€™t right with your little and when it doesnโ€™t seem to be improving ... and the Doctors donโ€™t seem worried BUT YOU ARE, keep pushing. So glad we know what we are dealing with now and can get her the proper treatment. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
.
Side note - look how happy she was today at the Paediatricianโ€™s office ๐Ÿ˜‚ loving life holding my coffee & babbling to herself while we waited to be seen. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป

My love for her is all consuming and overwhelming. It causes everything else to pale in comparison, the light shines brightest when Iโ€™m with her. What was black & white before, now sparkles in technicolor ~ a 3D dreamworld of fierce love and fragile moments. โœจ .

Choosing to focus on her cuteness this morning, and not the fact that she woke me up so flippinโ€™ early for the second day in a row (before 6 am) ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ต

My eyes burn, Iโ€™m stumbling around, and my brain feels fuzzy like itโ€™s on โ€œsleep modeโ€ and canโ€™t properly function. ๐Ÿ˜”

But sheโ€™s playing next to me, passing me toys & books, grinning up at me... so proud of herself. How can I be mad?! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป

When you spend 5 minutes blocking the fresh blooms, trying to get a cute picture of your baby... you must post at least one ๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’ .

These are a few of my favourite things ๐Ÿ˜
.
1)Fenleyโ€™s new sleeping position. Like what is this?! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป
.
2) Thieves all star line-up for dental health. Plant based, essential oil infused, flouride free, chemical and toxic crap free. If you donโ€™t understand why these things would be necessary - google whatโ€™s in your toothpaste & mouthwash right now ๐Ÿคข. Some of the ingredients are scary, & youโ€™re putting that in your mouth, multiple times a day.๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

3) Fur baby ๐Ÿ•
Heโ€™s been such a suck lately, wanting all the cuddles and needing to be right near me. Not that Iโ€™m complaining ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

She loves nature, animals, food, and water. ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ•๐ŸŒฎ๐ŸŒŠ

Sheโ€™s not a fan of mommy being out of her sight (lol๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ), loud & unexpected noises, baby food & prepackaged baby snacks, sunglasses, and being trapped in her car seat. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿ•ถ๏ธ .

Iโ€™m 99.9% sure I enjoyed Fenleyโ€™s cake smash more than she did ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŽ‚

She was dainty, using one little finger to gently dip in the icing and taste it. She didnโ€™t end up doing any actual โ€œcake smashingโ€ haha. ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ€

The beautiful decorations were handmade by my lovely friend Perrine, @perrines.design.studio . She is so talented, and I was floored by the way the paper flowers turned out, they are just gorgeous.๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒบ

1) extremely high antioxidant count to help us fight free radicals ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ
2)tastes flippinโ€™ amazing ๐Ÿ˜

This morning when Fen started stirring and fussing at 6:30 am I thought it was the middle of the night still. Iโ€™m so tired, I feel it in my bones. Going through the motions, cooking, cleaning, working, socializing. I feel as though I could just lay down on the floor at any given time and sleep for 24 hours straight.๐Ÿ˜ด
.
Motherhood is magical, beautiful, difficult, impossible, possible, messy, emotional, eye-opening, otherworldly and EXHAUSTING. You canโ€™t explain to someone how utterly drained you are until they have children. And then, unfortunately, they just get it. ๐Ÿ˜”
.
I hauled my butt out of bed and half asleep, I threw clothes on, took a quick sip of water and zombie walked to her nursery. We sat in the rocker and I nursed her. My eyes were closed and I was wishing I was still asleep. Itโ€™s hard not to resent waking up between 5:45-6:30 every single day. No sleeping in. Always up from a dead sleep to immediately jump into action tending to a baby. No leisurely reading in bed. No cup of coffee before I have to function.โ˜•๏ธ
.
She is ready to play when sheโ€™s awake. She doesnโ€™t want to cuddle and read stories. She wants to slap me and pull my hair and be bounced up and down and interacted with. I spent a while doing these things, and then cuddled her closer and we started watching Facebook videos on my phone. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ“ฑ
.
Her little body relaxed and I carefully peeked at her eyes, gently closed and completely content. I am now wide awake as I lay in this chair, cradling my sleeping babe and savouring it. Not because she is sleeping again(my original wish), but because she is here. She is healthy. She is little, and perfect, and mine.๐Ÿ’•
.
She is already one, and before I know it sheโ€™ll be two and we wonโ€™t have morning nursing sessions. Then sheโ€™ll be 10 and wonโ€™t want to be bounced up and down and she wonโ€™t think Iโ€™m the bees knees.๐Ÿ’”
.
As I type this, Iโ€™m in wonder of this love I have for her. Horribly broken hearted that sheโ€™s growing up and I wonโ€™t always have these moments, and incredibly grateful to have them right now. Tears are streaming guys, Iโ€™m feeling all the feels right now. This is a whole new depth of love and emotion. .

My Birthday Bunny ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ’•
.
This beautiful little babe is 1 year old today. Last year on this day, we were not expecting our baby for another 6 weeks! I was having some mild cramping, and taking a bath at this time. Little did I know, a few hours later I would be at the hospital for a โ€œcheckโ€ where my midwife would tell me I was already in active labour ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคฃ
.
Fenley was 6 weeks early, but right on time. Does that make sense? It does to meโค๏ธ
.
The first few months were pretty rough, I scraped by on 2 hours of sleep most nights and felt like I was in a perpetual battle to stay alive & also keep her alive. ๐ŸงŸโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ด
.
Breastfeeding was a huge challenge. Painful, frustrating for both of us, we almost gave up multiple times(basically every day I would tell myself if I still feel this horrible tomorrow I will quit ... but never did because Iโ€™m stubborn AF) ๐Ÿคฑ๐Ÿปโ˜ ๏ธ
.
Amongst the many tears and moments of doubt, we had moments of beauty and I finally felt alive! She was my purpose, I was meant to be a mama๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป
.
As the months went on, things slowly got easier. Breastfeeding was manageable. We met awesome mommy friends and became more social. She FINALLY napped in the swing so I would get about 1 hour to myself per day without her attached to me. I usually spent that hour eating or cleaning ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
After we sleep trained her, life became much easier for everyone. She was much more rested than ever before, and suddenly my colicky baby was happy! Giggling, playing, sleeping. I was getting more sleep and felt like a human being again.๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜ญ
.
Fast forward to now and she is crawling, standing unassisted, furniture walking, saying mama & Dada & yeah yeah yeah, copying our laughs, clapping and so many more fun things ๐Ÿ˜Š
.
Sheโ€™s a blast and I love spending time with her. A few days ago she started dancing and itโ€™s legit the cutest thing I have ever witnessed. Thank you Fenley, for giving me life one year ago today (or did I give you life...?๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜) .

Fen is not usually a cuddly baby, so I soak it up every time she wants snuggles๐Ÿ’•
.
Savouring my last week with her as a โ€œbabyโ€ before she turns 1 and is a โ€œtoddlerโ€๐Ÿ˜ญ
.
Side note- Am I the only one who feels like the weekend flew by?! Like for real.. how is it Monday? ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Fenleyโ€™s last weekly update ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป
.
Sheโ€™s teething and feeling slightly under the weather so she is my little cling on today ๐Ÿ’•
.
Fen - I love the way you need me, and Iโ€™m choosing to see you as a blessing, not a burden. Today, and every day.๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
.
I love the way you try to peel off my freckles, and donโ€™t understand why you canโ€™t.๐Ÿ˜‚
.
I love how you light up when you are playing with the dogs and how you love animals.๐Ÿ•
.
I love how you suck your little thumb and it becomes wrinkly and looks weathered like a little old ladyโ€™s thumb.๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿผ
.
I love how you are fearless, and enjoy being tossed in the air and hung upside down.๐Ÿ™ˆ
.
I love how you wave at everyone, and sometimes inanimate objects, such as the fans in Costco.๐Ÿ˜Š
.
I love you more than anything else in the Universe, and if youโ€™re a mother youโ€™ll understand this. If youโ€™re not a mother, Iโ€™m sure this comes off cliche and cheesy. I promise you itโ€™s true though. My love for this little girl is indescribable and I wouldnโ€™t change it for anything, ever. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒŽ .

Look at this cute little babe crawling all over the place ๐Ÿ’•
.
I blinked and sheโ€™s suddenly a tiny person. Like an actual person who waves and claps and does this funky โ€œET fingerโ€ thing.
.
So in love ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

When your baby has tons of toys, and prefers to play with your shoe ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ .
As long as sheโ€™s happy, Iโ€™m happy! Haha๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•

Fenley is 50 weeks old as of yesterday. Every week that passes, it hits me how close we are getting to 52 weeks/1 year old!๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป
.
I am so close to having a toddler and it definitely feels that way. She is trying to take steps, waving hello & buh-bye, wants to do some things herself like a big girl, and is nonstop active & exploring.๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜…
.
My crazy little Princess has some Irish in her DNA, but only has this one green shirt. So yeah, St.Pattyโ€™s day-ish? Sorta? Haha! #itried #momlife #weeklyfen #fenleyarya #stpatricksday #almostayear #green

We had so much fun playing with our friends yesterday ๐Ÿ’š
.
Fenโ€™s fave part was the ball pit for sure. I love watching her try new things, have difference experiences and jump right in without fear.๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•
.
Sheโ€™s been having some pretty intense โ€œstranger dangerโ€ lately and seems to want to be my cling on most of the time. Iโ€™m okay with this for the most part, but donโ€™t ever want her to miss out on anything due to fear. I was pleasantly surprised at how content she was to play on her own yesterday...with me close by of course. โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ

What I am trying to capture: serene, awesome, baby-wearing adventure where mom & baby are simultaneously (yet casually) smiling for a picture.
.
What I actually capture: fake smile thatโ€™s been plastered on my face for about 5 mins already, while trying to get Fenley to a) look at the camera, b) not look absolutely appalled by the experience.
.
๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚ you win some, you lose some. At least we had a good walk, haha.

These two ๐Ÿ˜
.
Took an impromptu walk near the river valley yesterday on the way home from the farmers market.
.
I need more of this in my life ๐ŸŒฒโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ง More walks, laughs, sunshine, handholding, baby wearing, market going. Less scrolling through social media, silently watching tv, junk food eating, indoor time.
.
What are you planning on doing more of now that spring is almost here ?! .

Fenley is 49 weeks old today guys!
.
Sheโ€™s officially sick of bananas, raspberries, and baby cereal. She is NOT at all sick of eggs(especially when Daddy makes them!), pasta, blueberries, or watermelon. ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ .
She is standing unassisted for 5+ seconds, and very proud of herself haha.
.
Fen is obsessed with โ€œPat-a-cakeโ€ and โ€œthe wheels on the busโ€ and any interactive songs we do together.
.
Spit bubbles are fun to blow, and itโ€™s also fun to try to take her diaper off, apparently ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™ˆ.
.
Love you, baby girl. Youโ€™re my whole world ๐ŸŒŽ ๐Ÿ’•

Baby girl can EAT! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

2 prices of toast, blueberries & ๐Ÿ‡ .

Note: she snatched a piece of jam toast off the plate before I could snap a pic ๐Ÿ˜‚ hence the missing piece and jam on her tummy!
