This girl lost another tooth last week. I’ve been waiting for this toothless smile since she knocked her other one out last year. Unfortunately, it’s not going to last long because her adult tooth is already growing in 😭. (Zoom in to see) Yesterday I noticed both of her front-bottom teeth are peeking out behind her baby teeth too. Does anyone know how to slow down time. A button? A phone call? Maybe a time machine? My baby isn’t a baby anymore. Cue the tears. Have you celebrated any milestones with your kids recently?

I don’t get bouquets of flowers for no reason…. But I do appreciate the flowers that grow by our mailbox, like this one. And it made me realize something this morning.  I’m over it. 
I’m over comparing my life to other people’s lives on social media.
My house might not be as fancy. 
My wardrobe is not as expensive. 
I don't apply makeup as well or even at all most days.
I don’t have beautiful, long flowing hair.
I don’t drive a car that’s worth bragging about. 
We don’t go on lavish trips around the world. 
I don’t carry loads of money in designer handbags. 
Does that make me less of a person? 
Does that make me less of an influencer? 
No. It makes me a regular 40-something Mom who has chosen to open up and share our lives on social media.  It makes me someone who has built this hobby of photography and writing into a business that has solely supported my family for a year and a half. 
I’m proud of that. 
I’m proud that I’m not a follower.
I’m proud that I have worked hard for what I’ve achieved.
I’m proud of influencers like me who are unapologetically themselves.  What are you proud of? .

What do you give your oldest daughter when she turns 14? Well, when you’re me, you write her a poem and post it on the blog for the world to see. Head over to read it and let me know what you think. Then, help me wish Lucia the best 14th birthday ever 👇🏻👇🏻

It was just after Iyla's third birthday. She seemed to be on track, at least according to the pediatrician's checklist. She could follow instructions, name most familiar things, knew her first name, spoke in sentences and could carry a conversation, though she was hard to understand most of the time. We enrolled her in preschool that year and she was a little social butterfly. But as that school year went on, her teachers started to notice that she was struggling to get her words out. Most people that know Iyla today, have no idea that she was in speech therapy classes for two years. They have no idea that I fought it for almost 6 months and that I felt a tremendous guilt about it, because I thought it was my fault that she was stuttering as badly as she was. Today on the blog, I’m sharing the mistakes I made, in hopes that if you are ever in this situation, you take advantage of early intervention. .

There are two types of kids. 1) The kid who wants to eat the same thing every single day of the week, sometimes more than one time per day and 2) The kid who loves something one day and then hates it the next. #ad Which type of kid do you have? Or, are your kids like mine and bounce back and forth between the two? Either way, there is a way to make lunches more fun for kids. I'll let you in on a little secret... creating fun lunches is more fun for us too! This week, we created our first character, Inspector Caper Eyes. Head to the blog for more details! Plus, learn why we choose @JuicyJuiceUSA new better-for-you options, which are packed with functional benefits with juicy flavor that parents can feel great about serving to their kids.

Remember I told you guys about our day dates now that the girls are #backtoschool? Well, we’ve really been enjoying them. #sponsored We walk, talk and laugh (a lot). Have you seen our IGTV yet? It’s a cheesy, beautiful video of what our relationship is like. I love that we’re able to connect and that we can make the time in our day to focus on our relationship and our health. Since we have three daughters, it’s even more important to go the extra mile when it comes to taking care of ourselves. These awesome @amazfit watches help us with that. I have the Amazfit Verge and Super Dad has the Amazfit Bip. They are lightweight, have app notifications and track your daily activity, your heart rate and so much more. The Amazfit Bip comes with a 30-day battery life and the Verge comes with Alexa built-in and you can make and receive phone calls through the watch. We can track our activity, sleep and heart rate and hold each other accountable for better decisions, when it comes to fitness and health. Visit rcl.ink/UyB to check them out and make sure to take advantage of the sale they’re currently having. No discount code necessary! What are you doing to get back to you? .

Take me back to the time when all I had to do was color in the lines, learn my abc’s and take a long nap everyday. Why didn’t we appreciate what we had back then? .

#AD Our girls love nature, so this weekend, we headed to a local nature preserve for a little animal watching, walking and family time. We always pack the essentials when we're heading out in this Florida heat, including snacks, sunblock and @smartwater, because we know how important it is to stay hydrated. We love smartwater® because it's purified water made using vapor distillation, similar to the way water is purified in nature. It's available in 700mL and 1L bottles. Now through 9/15, you can save $2.75 off at Sam's Club, so stock up!

The girls have been back to school for almost a month already. Can you believe it? #sponsored They love their teachers, are happy to see their friends again after a long summer vacation and are looking forward to a year packed with education, fun and new experiences. While they're at school, Super Dad and I are working hard to make sure they have everything they need. At the top of that list, is a healthy and yummy lunch. When you have three girls with very different tastes, it's important to make sure they are getting what they like, but more importantly, what they need. Our latest creation? This dairy-free rainbow pepper pizza making kit featuring @daiyafoods dairy-free Mozzarella Style Cutting Board Collection Shreds! Today on the blog we’re sharing all the details on Falynn’s lunchbox favorite! #veganrecipes #veganrecipe #veganfoodlovers #dairyfree #dairyfreekids #dairyfreecheese #dairyfreerecipes #rainbowfood #pizzatime #lunchboxideas #lunchboxideasforkids #amazonfinds #foodstyle #foodpassion #foodography  #momblogger  #foodinsta  #foodielife #healthygirl #foodielovers #instafoods  #mytinymoments #kidfriendly  #yummyyummy #foodielife  #ourcandidlife #foodielifestyle #deliciosa #recipeinspo

Almost F O U R T E E N. Where did the time go? I blinked and she’s this beautiful, little lady. She’s so smart, so talented and although she has her teenage girl moments, she is the best first born I could have ever asked for. Less than 2 weeks until she’s officially old enough to get a job. 😳 Where did the time go? .

Outfit of the Week [feat. Rockin Llama Company]

We typically photograph 7-10 outfits each week, depending on the needs of the shops we work with.  As much as I would love to blog about each of them and each of the incredible shops we encounter, I just don’t have the hours in my day (we’ll talk more about that in the next blog post).  Since I’m unable to post each of the outfits Falynn wears, I’ve decided that each week I’m going to be featuring our favorite outfit.

This week, I want to introduce you to Rockin Llama Company and the incredible swimsuit that was handmade especially for Falynn.  I paired it with the newest Riot Shades from our shop, iBetterAccessorize.

Shades: iBetterAccessorize, Swimsuit: Rockin Llama Company

When the owner of Rockin Llama Company, Kristina, messaged me on Instagram and showed me these fabrics, I imagined amazingness! Though, I must be honest, the final swimsuit blew my mind!  So much about this suit screams Falynn.  We all know she has a slight obsession with PPAP (the pen pineapple, apple pen song) so anything with pineapples on them causes her to break out in song.  She LOVES shades and has a bigger collection than anyone I’ve ever met.  And well, if you hang out with her for an hour, you’ll see that she’s a RIOT!  So how Kristina could have found fabric that was anymore perfect for Falynn is beyond me!

We found a spot near our house recently that looks like a deserted island.  While we aren’t super far from the beach, it’s a bit of a drive and with three kids, it’s never an easy task to go anywhere.  Although we can’t swim in this particular spot (there are alligators), it is the perfect spot for pictures because it’s absolutely beautiful and has a fun trail to walk!  Falynn had a blast walking through what she called “the sweet, sweet jungle”.  It’s actually a nature trail, but it was too cute to correct her.

On the trail, we passed two ladies who were commenting on her suit and her beautiful long hair.  She definitely commands attention wherever we go.  While Falynn has lots of swimsuits, this was her first handmade suit.  Rockin Llama Company offers this as a mix and match option, which means that you can choose which print goes where!  And there are so many options with these three fabrics!  I love the concept so much and I love that it’s pretty unlikely that anyone will have this exact suit, no matter where we go!

The highlight of our photoshoot was spotting a baby alligator!  Falynn named him Chomp and had an entire conversation with him (from the deck above), about the animals she encountered on our walk.  There’s actually a live video on our Facebook page if you want to check that out.

Shades: iBetterAccessorize, Swimsuit: Rockin Llama Company, Sneakers: FabKids

If you are in love with this swimsuit as much as we are, I recommend following the shop on Instagram and checking out Rockin Llama Company on Etsy.  Use code MYKIDROCKSRLC for $5 off any purchase of $25+.  Rockin Llama Company offers modern grunge inspired fashion for babies and toddlers.  Whether the items are influenced by lyrics, bands or “rock star attitude”, the items featured in Rockin Llama Company are full of personality, just like you and your littles. Most of the items all match each other as well, so putting outfits together is fun and super easy! The clothing is versatile and comfortable, too! Taking your baby from nap time, to preschool, to playdates, in fabrics that are deigned by artists and printed right here in the U.S.

Love the shades or want to add some awesome accessories to your small shop closet?  Visit our shop, iBetterAccessorize.com and use code FALYNN for a sweet discount!
