She was as tiny as a poppy seed when we found out we were pregnant and now she’s as big as an avocado! Growing growing growing 💕
When I was potty training Lennox so many years ago, I was totally convinced that something was wrong with ME because he wasn’t out of diapers before his third birthday. I had read every book, blog, and article on potty training, and nothing was working, especially those “easy” one-step methods. Fast forward to today, now that I have successfully potty trained three of our babies, I look back on those days with Lennox and realize that there were SO many things that I wish someone had told me about the entire process (like how rompers and toddlers don’t mix)! 😳😂
So, I’m super proud to partner with @kandookids to give you guys my latest blog post, “Ten Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me About Potty Training!”. It’s full of tips, tricks, and hope that, even though potty training isn’t “easy”, it’s definitely something that you and your toddler can conquer together! What are YOUR best potty training tips? 🙌🏼❤️
Halloween party last nite for hazels 2nd birthday • little Cinderella and Cruz asked for weeks to be a vampire 🧛🏾♀️👸🏻 • getting in the Halloween spirit • .
A few trees finally started turning reds, yellows, & oranges around here 🍁 Collected some pretty fallen leaves with the kiddos on our walk this evening (Esme kept turning hers backwards for the pic ☺️)
Absolute stunner of a Labour day. So went our for a little walk and a play at the beach. ☀️ Hope everyone is having a relaxing day 😘
👩👧👦Laura, could be like many Moms out there.
As a Mom of 5 who has dropped 50 pounds, I’d like to share what that means for me, beyond the scale. ⚖️ 👈The mom on the left: hiding behind a handbag. 🚫
👉The mom on the right: no longer feel the need to hide behind handbags, kids, family members, or friends. 😁 👈The mom on the left: low energy, feeling too tired to take the kids to the park, much less play with them. 🚫
👉The mom on the right: more energy to keep up with my kids. No longer wiped out by participating in one activity or outing. 😁 👈The mom on the left: constantly self conscious. 🚫
👉The mom on the right: happier and more self confident. 😁 👈The mom on the left: uncomfortable in the clothes I wore, had a hard time finding something that fit right. 🚫
👉The mom on the right: feel good in my clothes and it no longer takes me forever to find something that I love. 😁
Let’s celebrate Laura’s healthy lifestyle! 🎊🎉
Sheet pan teriyaki chicken. So easy for me and the kiddos while Rand is away. Easy to prep, run kids around, then pop it in the oven. Could even set a timer so it’s ready when you walk in the door. We ate it just as is but, would be nice with cauliflower rice or regular rice 🍚😉 Chicken (3-4 breasts) cut in half, lengthwise
2c Snap peas
2 Carrots, sliced on the diagonal
4c Broccoli florets
1 small red onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1/4 c coconut aminos
1/4 c raw honey
1/4 c rice vinegar
2 tbsp fresh orange juice
1 tbsp minced garlic (1-2cloves)
1 tbsp grated ginger (1”knob)
Brush chicken with teriyaki sauce, place on lined sheet pan. Toss veggies in 1/4c of the sauce. Add to the pan. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
Serve over cauliflower rice, add more sauce to taste.
Almost four years ago I remember staring into your brother’s sleepy face the night before his birthday, with tears in my eyes, thinking of how quickly he had grown. Tonight is no different, as I put you to sleep I think about how bittersweet it is to watch you grow so quickly. With every toy or outfit I fold away for good, I’m sad for the tiny baby who is no longer here but I am happy to see you change, learn and grow. You are such a special little lady and you have made our lives complete. I love you ladybug. #happybirthday#firstbirthday#1stbirthday

I’ve been enjoying some much needed family time this weekend, but I didn’t want the weekend to end without showing you a sneak peek. 🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼
We are one week away from the biggest launch I’ve had since I started this crazy fun ride on December 3rd. Swipe 👈🏼 so you can see last year’s Christmas collection. I’ve come a looong way since that pic was taken. It’s been a blessed year. I’m so grateful. ♥️
These beauties will be available on 10.28 at 7pm EST.
With the #weather starting to slowly change 🍁 , I’m realizing just how different life will be now that I can’t spend hours #outside each day with my baby. 👶🏼 🎀
🌧 , 🌧 go away!!

Even though our annual family picture at the farm looks different this year our fall tradition continues. It’s our 5th year going & Southern Belle Farm never disappoints! God gave us a beautiful day on the farm filled with fun & friends. ❤️

Who else loves the free ultrasound pictures you constantly get when pregnant?
Been feeling as sparkly as a fairy lately, minus the part where Finley wakes me up all through the night, wakes up at 5am, refuses to nap, go to bed, eat meals, eats my snacks and kicks anyone who is in close proximity of her while strapped in her car seat while simultaneously screaming “GET ME OUT OF HEREEEE.” Oh, I’m sorry, am I complaining? I have a two year old who acts like a threenager going on 16. I also miss her right now even though she finally went to sleep at 8:04pm after doing all of these things today. Love her so much. Oh, the endless pulling of trying to hold it all together and wanting a nap while also being so in love with such a little person.
