The best gifts I could ever see under the tree! 😍🤣
Took this picture last year! Check out my blog if you want to see other photoshoots I did! I had all these ideas for cute photoshoots to do this year, but I’ve just been so tired 😩 It’s such a fun time of year, but hard as well. Not sure why I haven’t felt as motivated to do things. Not sure if it’s the weather or missing Justin around the Holidays, but it’s been hard. I wish I didn’t feel this way because I love this month and I usually love doing photoshoots. So I’m happy I can at least look back on these cute pics!

This denim head wrap has been rocking since Riley was 2 years old.. 🗣 if it still fits, she’s wearing it! Lol
*The one where Ryan builds a hot cocoa stand.* Cause who doesn’t need one of these bad boys layin’ around their house?! •
My husband doesn’t get enough credit around here for all the pieces he builds for me.. he’s always up for my crazy ideas any day of the week, and his talent never ceases to amaze me. Get you a man who can build you whatever you want... and if not, I will share mine. Maybe.

I saw Lemmon kissing Santa Clause and a Honey bee so excited she got to see the big man so up close and personal 😂
🌲In a bid to be super green, plastic free, sustainable and on trend...🌲(hemp twine)
...🎄we made these babies🎄....
...by this I mean; I
...I...walked the hills and climbed trees to collected aesthetically pleasing pine cones
...I....dried them out for days (living in Wellington -keeping dry is a task🌧🌦🌧)
...I...went to two different shops to find spray paint (apparently these days the fun police keep them locked away)🔞
...I....got super anxious about the children inhaling fumes♨️ and considered detoxing them (tick....good naturopath)✅
...and I...finished them off because apparently children don’t need to finish what they start theses days....
....green parenting and all...😏
And of course
...the children stole all the glory hanging them🐒🐒
Very tricky to get a good shot together these days, let alone with Chris too!
With Linc nearly 2.5 we are seeing sooo many different little sides to his personality emerge.🙄
They say 'terrible 2's,' well yep I could agree at times but it's normal with them pushing the boundaries, right? 🤷♀️ Learning what can and can't be done?
But then there is this incredible, soft and compassionate side we see that involves compliments to others, being helpful and really starting to empathize and connect with the world around him.
I've got to start writing down these cute little moments as time goes fast and you forget. But a couple of recent examples are:
'Grandma, I'm too little now but when I'm older I'll help you.' 〰️ when my mum was moving things at home last week.❤
'No mummy you are not a horse, you are a beautiful girl.' 〰️ when I compared my hair being in a pony tail like his toy horse. 😜
'Shhh guys be quiet the baby is sleeping.' 〰️ when my niece or nephew are sleeping or he thinks they might be. 🤫
Really melts your ❤.
Always an adventure with these little munchkins, but at any moment the tables can turn if they are tired, hungry, or just want things their way. Like adults I suppose!
We have moments where we want things a certain way, right?
I'm finding the best thing I can do is try to let Linc have his moments without getting too crazy myself, then trying to calm right down myself, voice lowered and try asking him what's wrong. This works sometimes, but not always. No 'tactic' is perfect, right?!
Just keep doing the best you can and enjoy the variety in your day 👌
What cute things is your child or baby doing right now that makes your day?
