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? .

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?

#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?

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? .

Growing Up With Small Shops [feat. Random Rompers]

The best part of being a part of the small shop community is that the friends that we make, both reps and small shop owners, are watching our little ones grow up through pictures. These people become like long distance family and in some cases, know more about us than our real family.  These Mamas understand us, are there to give advice and want to help each other to succeed whether it’s by purchasing from your shop, helping you perfect your photography skills or just lending an ear when you go through life’s daily struggles.  It’s the people that make this community so strong and such a beautiful thing to be a part of.

Let me take you back to a little over a year ago, when I made my first purchase from Random Rompers.  I had seen so many people in these rompers and I just had to see what the fuss was about.  I mean, it’s a romper… and I had a 3 year old who was newly potty trained.  It wasn’t the ideal time to discover them, but they were so cute and affordable that I just had to try them out.

As soon as that first order arrived, I got it.  Have you ever purchased something and it’s so well made and so comfy that you want to buy it in every color they sell?  That was how I felt.  I finally understood why everyone was wearing them.  The material was SO soft and fit Falynn perfectly.  They were both super easy for her to pull on and off, so the potty training concern was not an issue and best of all, when we needed to get her dressed quickly, when we were running late, her rompers were the most convenient thing to throw on!  I was instantly hooked.   I can’t count how many we’ve owned since then, but I can tell you that Random Rompers is one of the shops that we knew we were going to miss once Falynn outgrew the biggest size. And then, the owner, Krystal, surprised us with matching tops for big kids!

Top: Random Rompers

T-shirts for big kids?! Genius! And she makes them up to size 14Y!  These tees are just as soft and just as beautiful as the rompers. I love that I can still buy Falynn a romper and get her older sisters a matching tee or, I can get a tee for Falynn, like this gorgeous one she’s wearing.

The only problem is that these rompers and tees sell out super quickly so if you want one, you have to be ready on release day to purchase.  This one actually sold out within 2 hours of release.  Random Rompers offers a variety of rompers, in addition to their new tees.  Choose from pull on rompers, raglan pull on rompers, sweater rompers and water rompers (great for water parks). You can even add on convenient snaps if your little one is still in diapers!

There's something so special about small shops. You are purchasing handmade pieces and supporting a family and small business owner. Meet Random Rompers.

    That t-shirt looks so comfortable and stylish! I just checked out the site and the clothes are a lot more affordable than I expected them to be.

    My daughter was lucky enough to get some wonderful hand me downs of clothes similar to that t-shirt. It was always such a treat, and even though she was the 4th one to wear them, they still were beautiful and comfortable.

    Okay so the thing that I think puts this outfit over the top is the seemingly matching floral boots that we barely get a glimpse of in the last image and for that I’m a little sad!

    That is a beautiful handmade shirt. I have never bought a handmade clothing in a while. Maybe because I didn’t know where to shop. I will have to check that store out.
