Oh man!! That was brutal! Even trying to go in with a game plan, it was an intense 12 mins! // @streetparkingmembers @streetparking

The reality of #motherhood is needing to take breaks from the wedding festivities to pump and feed your baby. Still, the best & most magical day ever ❤️
.
My definition of glamour & “magic” has definitely changed with motherhood- can’t wait to talk to you guys more about it over at @freecitizenco 💕

More city exploring today! We ventured into downtown and it’s official, @palacecoffee is our favorite shop in town. •
Also, I’m extra pregnant these days. In about a month and a half we’ll be welcoming our second son to the world which means my mind is in restless transition mode trying to mentally prepare us all for the days my attention is split in two.

I’m so excited to meet Charlie, but I will definitely miss these days of just me and Oliver having all the time in the world to ourselves.

Literally documenting each nap because Rainer is just two months old, and already fighting naps like the pro his sister is 😅 #maxandmoosesnuggles

Look at this little cutie I got to meet over Christmas break!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. What was the best part about 2018? Did you make any New Year's resolutions?

Was one to get your family photos taken more often? ;) baileyeiland.com

At the beginning of January we started having Jasper take skating lessons with the hope that in the next couple of years he can begin to play hockey. It was a rocky start because he had never been on skates before. However, just a few lessons later he can stand up by himself, skate a good distance, pick things up off the ground without falling, and even skate with these cones between his feet! He seems to be really enjoying learning to skate!

snow in zermatt, and i am writing from a glowy café window looking out on the heartbeat of town. which is to say: indulging in a breath of self-care while chris walks our sleepy little travel companion into his dreams. backpacking switzerland with a little one isn’t so different than life at home with a little one: an hourly dance of tag-teaming and turn-taking and selflessness, everything requiring a bit more strategy, everything delivering unspeakably more joy, as we learn it: the art of partnership. #travelersbrown #brownsinswitzerland

Mr. Busy ... I love that the kitchens come with a cell phone 😂 bc who cooks without talking on the phone??.. I organize this kitchen every single day (no joke) and it takes .2 seconds for it to become a disaster - just like my kitchen when he cooks!

Calling this blend “be the calm,” inspired by a quote that has been living in my head for weeks: “When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, it’s our job to share our calm, not join their chaos.” LR Knost

Sometimes (all the time) it’s difficult for me to not take tantrums and fighting naps really hard. I get so sucked into the baby needing to nap NOW and why the heck is she smiling at me instead of closing her eyes and what could Hart possibly be doing that’s making THAT noise and if I go check will it undo all the rocking I’ve already done and I swear if she giggles one more time instead of even pretending to be sleepy I’m going to leave her in here and she can just cryyyy and cryyyy and cryyyy. Anyone else, or just me? 😅
+++
I’m hoping this blend reminds me it is my job to be present and consistent and calm. That I can make the conscious choice to get over myself and get over the perfect schedule and show them how to feel their emotions rather than be consumed by them. I’m a work in progress, a mess from the minute I wake up. But isn’t that the beauty of it? My kids can grow seeing me trying to better myself, to find my faults and discover healthy ways to push through them. For them, I’ll be living proof that there is no end to second chances, humble apologies, and trying harder. 💖

“No one has yet fully realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure.”

My guide to selfie-ing with babies: if at first you don’t succeed, try try again. And again. And just keep pushing that button cuz eventually you’ll get a couple good ones. (Hopefully.)

First-borns are the living embodiment of new frontiers. Every new phase, fever, television show, and piece of homework—it’s all new terrority to the first-time parent. Exhilirating and nerve-wracking, it’s hard to know if you’re doing the right thing with your child’s tender soul. But you aren’t the only one navigating these unchartered waters. Your child, is too! And you’re exploring, learning, together.
🎓
The most important thing Juan José and I are learning together is how to separate our achievements from our self-worth, grounding our identities in God’s love instead. For him, I tell him how much I love him, how much God loves him, no matter what he does, no matter what he says. Whether he’s kind or mean to his friends, whether he runs fast or slow, I will always love him. God will always love him. And for me, I tell myself all of that, too, with something extra added in: no matter how hard I try to be a great mom for my children, God’s love for me and for them will fill in my gaps. I can trust God with my parenting, with my family, with *all of it*.

Swipe to hear a bit of episode 2 of the Kin podcast where I talk a little about my own journey with how achievements impacted my self-worth. You can listen to the full episode at www.kinpodcast.com
