My beautiful wife and my handsome son. If you asked, Iโ€™d tell you I already have it all. God has blessed me with so much, and Iโ€™m forever grateful for it all. I hustle for them, and I grind for them. Parenting has and will continue to test us and truly show us who we are; itโ€™s not easy. Marriage isnโ€™t easy, add children, and that takes it to another level, but through it all, we lean into each other. Marriage has made us stronger and wiser. The tough times have made us better communicators, stronger partners, and better friends. Parenting has shown us what real love is, how to sacrifice, what to value, how to think, and dream bigger. It has shown us what is really important, where and what to give our energy too. It helps us put things into perspective. Being a husband and a father forced me to grow, pushed me out of my comfort zone, filled my heart, and made me a better man, and for that, I will forever be grateful. We spent the weekend celebrating the love of two of our greatest friends @adv_foundry_nyc and @antrichny on their nuptials the whole squad is growing and glowing ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพโœจโ™ฅ๏ธ

Today our big boy turned nine months โ€” just a little impromptu photo shoot with my little man today. My wife said you have a task today get a great nine-month photo of sage; I said babe I got this ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ. You are crawling all over; you have five visible teeth and one on the way, you can clap and raise your arms on command. โ€œSlippery Fishโ€ is still your favorite song; Mama and Papa are your favorite humans, Averyโ€™s your best bud ๐Ÿถ and you get cuter and more awesome by the day. We love you Sage happy 9๏ธโƒฃ months ๐ŸŽ‰ ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพโ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘‘

Unsung, non-praised, and unfortunately sometimes we are still unnoticed. We are people, too, we are valuable, and our presence is a significant asset in our society. Fatherhood is just as important as motherhood. Take it from a man who grew up fatherless, Iโ€™m still growing, Iโ€™m still learning, and Iโ€™m trying to be the best man I can for my son. Thank you to my friend @wesguity for the shirt. I'm so excited for you and where you will take @dadslove_____ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

I canโ€™t forget about my partner in crime, the princess, our first child. The one who showed us how to love and take care of something other than ourselves. You showed us how to sacrifice Avery; You love us unconditionally, you're my favorite cuddle buddy, and you are the most loyal. We love you, princess Avery ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’ž#AveryBrooks #miniatureschnauzer #schnauzer#schnauzer_planet#cute #weeklyfluff #delight_pets #dogsofinstagram #funpetloveclub #dogscorner #dogdailyfeaturesss #inspiredbypets #dachshund #pet #buzzfeed #petbox #dog #dogsandpals #mydogiscutest

This weekend has been one for the books. We ended it surrounded by people who genuinely love us, support us, lift us, and pray for our family daily. Summer, you've been really good to us, but like I always say. โ€It's always summer somewhereโ€ weโ€™ll see you soon peace โœŒ๐Ÿพ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

Mvmt in the new MVT 2.0- I am pulling positive energy and amazing opportunities in my direction. The energy you give in this world is usually the energy you receive. As always, wake up fired up, acknowledging that you are blessed and highly favored and always lead with love and passion. NYC in the early 90โ€™s I grew up in the era where house parties were a thing we danced till the walls sweat, and the floor felt like it might collapse. Iโ€™ve always been a dancer, and I still got the moves. Shout out to the legendary โ€œKid n Playโ€ for the inspo during this shoot! ๐Ÿ—ฃ oh yeah, that last pic is the look I'm giving anyone thinking they can affect my energy, My ๐Ÿ‘‘ is sturdy.

Born in New York, we had to stay fly, we had to do what we said we did, and we were taught to keep our word. As kids we stayed out till the street lights came on I remember it like it was yesterday hearing my grandfather whistle from the window as me and @bambambaklava wheelyโ€™d our bikes in the park. I remember playing skelly, manhunt, hot peas, and butter. As I got older, I got into skateboarding and aggressive inline when it wasn't the thing to do as a black kid eventually getting sponsored. I wasn't big on traditional sports, but I always moved. Skating and biking kept me active and outside; that was my movement practice. Iโ€™m a proud New Yorker, and I am proud New York is still my playground.

The new metal vent hereโ€™s to growth and evolution. Speaking of growth and evolution. Peep game, you will achieve what the mind believes. Five years ago I set a goal to become an ambassador for at @lululemonnyc Iโ€™m proud to embark on my third year and second ambassador term. Yes, that makes me the @barackobama of fitness lmao. All jokes aside during this time Iโ€™ve nurtured some real relationships with some kind and genuine people, that I now call friends and family. I have the opportunity to help many, but Iโ€™ve also leaned into vulnerability by receiving the help of many. Wise ones know It takes a village, and for that, I am grateful, you know who you are. Iโ€™ve been blessed with some fantastic opportunities and supported by people who celebrate me and not tolerate me. Iโ€™ve grown and evolved in many ways, over the years since my first ambassadorship, and I want to thank all who have loved and supported me along the way, hereโ€™s to term two we are just getting started @kristinabkline @sabrinaacruz ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพโœจ. Thank you
@brakethrough_media you create magic behind the lens. Thank you @stephy.leblanc for your curation and vision you are a true storyteller. Thank you

Mr.Brooks

Prince Sage Ryan Brooks today youโ€™ve officially given us a whole new meaning to life for exactly 8 months. Even though youโ€™re our prince, you are the King of commando crawling. I canโ€™t get enough of your laugh and that beautiful smile that lights up me and mommyโ€™s world. Salmon and sweet potato seems to have taken the prize as your favorite meal this month. Reading is still your favorite thing to do and โ€œSlippery Fishโ€ is still your favorite tune. As you get older you seem to not want to move with out Avery by your side. At only 8 months you seem to already attribute all the characteristics of a Brooks. You are strong, independent, and you love and value family above all. Happy 8 months baby boy ,
Love Papa โ™ฅ๏ธ

Iโ€™ve been looking forward to this moment since he was in my wifeโ€™s stomach. The zoo and the circus are two of the most memorable and fun parts of my childhood. Today we took our son to the zoo for the first time. This is one of the places I have always loved as a child. A place my mother used to always take me. Today we got to share a tradition that my mom has now passed on to me. To share this nostalgic moment with a few loved ones really made today magical. To all reading this I hope these photos give you joy ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพโ™ฅ๏ธ

If I had to sum up my life right now in one word it would be โ€œGratefulโ€ I am honored to serve my second term as a lululemon ambassador, I couldnโ€™t wait to hit up @1hotels in BK for this epic onboarding experience. Fresh off a plane slightly hungover and jet lagged AF, but beyond thankful I made it. Because I left with my entire being feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. In a world that takes and takes the vibrations in that room gave to me, I felt motivated to do more. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so many inspiring individuals. Thank you @lululemonnyc for a day well spent. Thank you for the access, community, sweat, and most importantly the support and family ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ–ค #lululemonambassador @lululemon @brakethrough_media

You got to share your knowledge, whatever it is that you can bring to the table. And you have to put people on. When you do good things for people the energy of the universe opens up for you. And gives you the same in return, I win cause I put people on โœŠ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ†

After attending @lululemonnyc ambassador summit I felt inspired to do more. During that time I was surrounded by some very amazing humans, doing very epic shit. It reminded me that your environment is everything. Your thoughts, beliefs, attitude, and even your body are all shaped by your environment.

Just get up and move, the ability to get up and move in some capacity daily is a gift that I will never take for granted. If you wake up and put your toes on the ground daily and have air in your lungs you're already winning. Movement doesn't have to be expensive your body is your machine and this city is your playground.

Happy 7 months to our amazing little guy. I am so grateful to be able to spend so much time with you daily. Especially during these precious and important times. I know how important it is to have a present father from the lack of not having one. I vow to love, protect and support you with everything I have. 7 months already time truly flies, you have developed so much. You almost have your two front teeth, you sit up so well, youโ€™re always laughing and smiling and now you can even dance on command. I love the way you love us, you are the best thing thatโ€™s ever happened to us. Happy 7 months to our darling boy! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพโ™ฅ๏ธ

As an entrepreneur, I keep my business hat on first and my coaching hat on 2nd. Iโ€™m here to win, not look like Iโ€™m winning. These days I have no time for the small talk. If I call you, best believe thereโ€™s usually a bag involved. If you know, you know ๐Ÿ’ฐ

Mr.Brooks

If you asked me if I think Iโ€™d be where I am right now in life you may be surprised at the answer. My answer would be yes, I knew my wife was a beautiful and intelligent woman who was out of my league. She took a chance on me and when she did I invested everything I had into showing her I was worth her time. We dated for a year and I asked her father for his blessings weโ€™ve been married almost 5 years now. Although getting my wife pregnant was a challenge and I hit a low point while trying, I knew it would happen eventually because we leaned further into Jesus and not our own abilities. I always said it will happen when he sees we are ready. My wife has always been my โ€œwhyโ€ but now together we have a whole new meaning to life. Everything we think, say and do will affect this tiny human. We have a whole new perspective and outlook on life. Just when I thought I couldnโ€™t love her anymore I fall in even deeper seeing her as a mother. @sbsinspirations you are the best thing thatโ€™s ever happened to me because you helped me become a man and now a father. Sage papa loves you, I pray that as you grow we can continue to set a great example for what love looks like, by showering you with love and by loving each other! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพโ™ฅ๏ธ thank you @3angelsphotos for capturing these moments a few years ago these photos were just a dream ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Always seeking growth, personally I love change. My life has changed a lot this year. Being an entrepreneur is challenging, doing it successfully while trying to be a present parent that's a whole new level of challenge. I schedule most meetings around nap times. I take most conference calls on mute cause sage feels chatty. I am mastering the one-handed email. Iโ€™m constantly passing on opportunities because they interfere with our time. I canโ€™t be present for every @offthestrength_ taping. I have fully accepted that I canโ€™t be everywhere, doing everything with everyone. Because my family needs me, this is where my life has taken me. I am becoming stronger, more aware, patient, selective and grateful. I am learning a lot about who I am as a man during this time, and applying what I learn to all areas of my life and I wouldnโ€™t change a thing โ™ฅ๏ธ
