celebrate. a VLOG.

I am pretty sure this is my first VLOG! Vlogs make me nervous but I just recently did two for babble and it felt good to say my thoughts out loud. Even if I feel like I look silly. Eeeek. Being a mama is the greatest responsibility and not something that I take lightly at all.

Learning to juggle life, housework and a new baby can be a lot to handle — but focusing on the small successes along the way is so important for us new mamas and dads :). You know, I find myself constantly saying and thinking " it was you all along” when I look at my sweet Apple. It was such a crazy pregnancy and there is so much to be celebrated now that she is here and healthy! 

 I’ve put together a vlog for you to share some of the small successes that I celebrated when my third baby was born. From a first date night away to making the bed, these are all important things that we need in order to pat ourselves on the back for bringing in a new life to this world! Each little milestone can breathe such inspiration back into us, a reason to celebrate!

  1. I love your vlog!! I don't know how you do it with 3 little ones. I only have one and I'm exhausted! People always tell me "sleep when the baby sleeps" too and I'm always like "you're nuts. I have dishes, laundry, I have to make diner, I have to cook baby food (I made it myself), I have to wash diapers".......you get it I'm sure. You're such an inspiration mama!! XOXO

  11. I was so excited see you on your vlog!! You are simply as darling as I have pictured you!! Loved hearing your tips! I don't think very many mommas actually "sleep when baby sleeps" ;) There seems to always be something to do especially when you have more than one kid! And LOVED how you emphasized on how important it is to get your own time, especially with your spouse!! Date nights are always important, but they sometimes get lost in the busyness of family life. Thanks for sharing this and loved hearing/seeing your lovely voice/face :) Blessings to you and yours dear friend!!

    xo,

  14. You did awesome! I love your blog. I've been reading your words for so long, so it was cool hearing you speak them! Side note: I know you live in Texas, but for some reason I never imagined you with a southern accent! So cool! Wonderful vlog and blog :)

  17. Enjoyed the video lady ;-) - 3 under 3 is hard! rock on! I think at one point I had 4 under 7, but never 3 under 3 ;-) phew!! Since mine were spread apart a lil more I did nap when baby would nap and would have a friend baby sit my 3rd born who was 2 at the time Reed was born. The older 2 who were 8 and 6 were old enough to do their own thing while I napped. May it be watch TV... play legos... that sorta thing. Reed threw me for a loop and by 7 mo was still not sleeping through the night.. so my body screamed at me if I didnt nap. Thankful for grace and help from a friend during those harder months... My house also went to pot as well as home schooling. We took a 5 mo leave from schooling our kids! thankfully they are totally fine and caught up this year now that Reed is 1 and sleeping haha. Enjoyed the vlog! ;-)

  18. You did really great! It's exciting to hear the voice of someone you feel like you know but have never actually heard speak. You have a beautiful voice and I didn't realize you had a "southern" accent! I loved the vlog! Now when I read your posts I can hear you in my head. Keep up the good work!

  23. You're adorable! And so right! I really love hearing a blogger's voice now and then. Makes them and the experiences they share so real . . . though I should probably start doing them myself if I'm really gonna be fair right? ;) Celebrating the small milestones. So very important! Thanks for that reminder.
