Here’s why mamas need to support mamas. πŸ’• .  So you realize you aren’t the only one messing up! πŸ˜‚ . I’m pretty sure at least once a month I realize something that I’ve messed up on, haven’t done, didn’t know about, or are too scared to try. 🀦‍♀️ . Examples: Cleaning penis post circumcision, amount of tummy time, over feeding🍼, had his sound machine like wayyy too close when little πŸ‘‚πŸ», hit his head on the wall, didn’t wash his clothes before wearing, using the activity gym/walker too much, too afraid to have him try eggs/fish/peanuts πŸ₯šπŸŸπŸ₯œ, is his room too cold at night?, too afraid to try certain solids, haven’t brushed his two new teeth because well, forgot, and there is definitely more to come. 😬 . And guess what? . It’s okay! And he’s okay. And, I’m not alone!! . Mamas, be positive. With life. With each other. With your little ones. It will all work out as it should. ❀️ . . . #motherhood #mamassupportingmamas #mamahood #mom #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodthroughinstagram #love
I mean for real though guys! Anybody else out there have trouble with eating all the produce before it goes bad? Here are a few produce facts to start your Saturday off πŸ‘‡πŸ» . πŸ“In strictly botanical terms, strawberries and raspberries are not actual berries, but bananas and avocados technically are . β €β € 🍎Apples, pears, peaches, and plums, among others, are all members of the rose family. . β €β € πŸ₯¬Speaking of spinach, it’s not as loaded with iron as you might think. A German scientist misplaced a decimal point in his research on spinach’s iron content in 1870, and it took 70 years or so for anyone to notice the mistake. Whoops!🀷‍♀️ . #sharetheverymom #thisismotherhood #theeverymom #myhonestmotherhood #lifeofmom #parentproblems #dailyfoodfeed #mombloggernetwork #sociamediamom #momblogger #southfloridamom #mominfluencer #thatmomlife #momquotes #letterboard #letterboards #letterboardquotes #raisingtinyhumans #momtruth #momsplaining #mamahood #funnymomquotes #instamoms #mommemes #funnymomstuff

My little ham sporting her Cognac Baltic Amber teething necklace from @carehaandco.😍 . . We have been hardcore believers in baltic amber since Lilah started wearing hers at about 8 weeks. I will say I was skeptical, but that didn’t last long. We saw huge improvement with her pain, and drooling from teething. • •• This post isn’t sponsored, but I just wanted to brag on @carehaandco a bit! The mama, and owner of this shop is INCREDIBLE. She works so hard to make sure her products are absolutely the best quality, and safe for our babies. Her customer service is amazing.πŸ™ŒπŸ» I get so excited about ordering from her, and having her products for my family.🧑 🌿 🌿 If you want to support this mama, use code LITTLEHALLS15 for 15% off of your order.☺️
@aliciarassad: “The books suggest I put him down while he is still drowsy so he can learn to self soothe, and it’s sound advice. But my heart demands I hold him just a little longer, because his head fits so perfectly underneath my chin. I can still smell his infant musk underneath the lavender notes that linger from his bath, and I indulge in his sweetness knowing it all will pass. When he’s grown and I’ve slept, I’ll write my own book about the magic of motherhood I’ve found in moments like this. There is no rhyme or reason to passion, no perfect way to love....πŸ’™”
Last Christmas I was 3 months pregnant and as the holiday approaches I’m starting to reflect. I’ve been through so much this last year and it has changed me and challenged me in the best way. Our hope for the future and our greatest joy came to us in 2019. She’s helped me understand my parents love for me, the meaning of sacrifice, pointed out my selfishness and humbled me, showed me how I can overcome great pain and that I am stronger than I ever could have imagined. She’s also made me feel more valued, adored, needed and loved than anyone else, because I am her entire world. It’s a lot of pressure, but such a high honour to be given a daughter to raise. Entering the season with a grateful heart on high. More reflecting to come...🌲
Charlie is exceeding all our expectations. Eating well, gaining an ounce or 2 everyday (he’s 2lbs 11ounces today - up 6 ounces since birth!), breathing great on his own and also super hairy😍. We’re so in love with him and cannot wait for Millie to meet himπŸ’•.
It’s rainy and it’s cold and it’s Friday, what else would I need? Answer could be A. Wine B. Beer C. Both
Out of Instagram jail which means I can post again. So my first post back definitely has to be of this beautiful boy from our first family Christmas photo session with @creationsbehindthelens at Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm . . Christmas photos have come a long way from the Sears studio I remember as a kid . . Oh the horrors of those bright lights, plastered smiles and the inevitable meltdown πŸ˜‚
Watching these two become friends and not just siblings has been such a joy❀️
Lord help me if this dude is our pilot! JJ flying us back home for our family cookie party. Love making memories with the kiddos. Especially those that involve our extended family that we don’t live near. Family is everything! ❀️ • #holidayseason #pilotsofinstagram

TG it’s the weekend to the longest week ever πŸ˜…. I moved our little crock tree in here to finish up decorating the  nursery.... but Christmas is only 11 days away so I’m wondering if it’s worth it. πŸ™ˆ. Anyone else still decking the halls?

This is 12 hours postpartum. Fatigue had not yet set in.  Still running on the adrenaline from just giving birth to my fourth baby at home.  Post-birth contractions coming strong and hard.  Alternating changing my baby’s diaper and my own.  My body going through so many changes in a matter of minutes and preparing myself for the weeks ahead of recovery.  Feelings of thankfulness that my body is allowing myself to breastfeed my fourth baby.  Reliving the birth over and over again in my head.  He is here.  He is safe.  This time is just as important to us mothers as the 9 months of pregnancy were.  The fourth trimester is beautiful, painful, tiresome, blissful and way too quick all wrapped into one.  #realmotherhood #postpartumbody
Baby bun’s first trip to #lakelouise. Still can’t even believe I am carrying baby #3. Another little vegan nugget. That Arrow will be a big brother, that somehow this is my story. Where are you in your journey to becoming a mother? Or how many kids do you have? Share your stories below if you’re comfortable because it helps others on there way there, to read those stories of hope or to connect in the process of waiting. It seriously was the only thing that helped me. My anxiety in the first trimester was pretty high and I think a bit of that is the result of Harlow’s ultrasounds and the “impossible” message we got each after week after IVF, coupled with the fact this pregnancy has been SO different than my other two. And that I mostly still couldn’t believe it. I was under a different doctor so it wasn’t like I was used to either. They didn’t check my betas and I was apparently really unsettled by that even though I tried to trust the process. I thought the gift of Arrow was almost too surreal to believe even though I had heard and followed stories like that ever since the first few months when I had a feeling I couldn’t get pregnant (before Harlow). This community is such a light. You’ve given me hope when I needed it. You’ve given each other hope when you’ve each needed it. You’ve encouraged me through my highs, supported me through some lows. I see you guys interact and comment with each other in everything not just infertility stuff. In #motherhood. #parenting. #life. It’s a gift to be able to connect to people who I otherwise wouldn’t have who can relate to the overwhelm of infertility, the emotions that come in life after that, surviving it while you’re in it, the journey of motherhood and just life in general. It’s hard a lot of the days. It isn’t always easy or perfect. But this is my story of hope. And I’ll speak it forever because I want those of you who can’t stop thinking about it, to never stop fighting for
We need to talk about the elephant in the room... personally I have felt like I had to paint a picture that everything is ‘perfect’ and I’ve definitely felt like I’ve had something to prove, but this week I realised I’m not helping anyone, including myself by not being honest about reality.  What I posted on Instagram this week: 1. Cute photos of Amal’s outfits  2. A tidy kitchen 3. Our christmas tree all sparkly 4. Date night  What happened off of Instagram: 1. Clothes soaking in the sink after a poo explosion (and then re-soaked and washed the next day after I forgot I had been soaking them) 2. Crying because I dropped my cold lunch all over the floor after heating it up twice. 3. Sobbing ‘what’s the matter?’ because Amal was refusing to drink her milk. 4. Eating week old cake for breakfast. 5. Falling asleep myself trying to put Amal down for a nap and waking in a panic realising we were late. 6. Making myself sick to my stomach about feeling judged. 7. Ignoring the clean laundry from 2 weeks ago waiting to be put away. 8. Ignoring the clothes in the ironing basket that have been there for 3 weeks.  9. Curling up in a ball on the floor rocking Amal in her snuzpod promising myself I’ll stop rocking her to sleep from tomorrow - every day. 10. Getting stuck in traffic on the city bypass and crying behind the wheel because I could hear Amal screaming in the backseat and couldn’t do anything about it.  11. Feeling desperate for a break and convincing myself it would be okay to go out for a date night without Amal but spending the whole time wondering whether she was okay, missing me or even worse, not missing me.  It’s okay mamas not to be okay. You’ve GOT THIS. Even when you feel like you’re falling apart ♥️ inspired by @hannahlouisevans #maternalmentalhealth #postpartum #postpartumrecovery #fourthtrimester #postnataldepression #postpartumdepression #postpartumjourney #newmum #firsttimemom #firsttimemum #mummy #mama #motherhood
I want the messy. Just hear me out. I want the imperfect. I want my baby to help decorate my tree and I want all of our sweet memories to be hung. I want the fingerprints on my windows and the crayon even on my wall (nothing a sponge can’t fix). I accept it. I embrace it. These days, these moments, they are all worth living a million times over. And when all of my child(ren) are grown and I’m gray, all I will ever wish for is to be right back here. Here, tired and a lot of times overwhelmed but happier than I ever could have imagined. ✨
this is 32 never in a million years did i think i would have four kids when i turned 32 i never really gave much thought to this point in my life growing up  honestly i never felt like i had a purpose  thankfully God knew  motherhood  these four lovable souls and the man behind the camera have made my life one amazing adventure so cheers to another year
Today we took in Jacq to see what’s going on with her. She has not been feeling well for the passed few days, and it turns out she has Bronchiolitis, and a double ear infection. On top of that her first two teeth made an appearance this week. Triple whammy! Hurts mama’s heart to see her not feel good.  On the bright side I’m getting extra snuggles.πŸ₯° • • • #motherhood#momtog#momcommunity#realparenthood#motherhoodrising#ohheymama#pixel_kids#posttheordinary#inspiremyinstagram#littlestoriesofmylife#livethelittlethings#makeitblissful#makemoments#makemoments#makeyousmile#meetthemoment#momentsofmine#myeverydaylife#mommylife#mamahood#mommylife#watchthemgrow#worldoflittles
The holiday madness has begun! Since mamas are always putting everyone else first. We want to know - what’s on every new mamas’ Christmas list this year? πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸ½πŸ‘‡πŸΎ β € πŸ“Έ @amandafloresphoto via @normalizebreastfeedingofficial •β € •β € •β € •β € #auliquidgold #breastfeedingjourney #trusttheprocess #trustbirth #powerofchoice #empoweredbirthproject #normalizebreastfeeding #breastfeedingsupport #mamabrew #mamahood #mommylifeisthebestlife #birthisbeautiful #positive #bumppositive #honestmotherhood #motherhoodrising #womensupportingwomen
Its weird how one day we have no idea what it’s like to be a mom and then the next day we know exactly what to do. As if these little babies have been there all along. It comes so naturally I’m sure most of us rarely think of what we’re actually doing everyday. Until you’re feeding your sweet baby in the middle of the night and he looks up at you with his big eyes and smiles at you as if nothing else in this world matters but you.  That’s why we do what we do as moms. Motherhood is an emotional roller coaster and I never knew what it means to have your heart walking outside your chest, but now I know. πŸ–€
#ad This time of year can be crazy to say the least. With all the traveling and everything going on, it can be hard to keep up with making homemade baby food. But I have found the biggest life saver ever! β € β € @raisedreal provides super convenient, frozen and prepackaged, nutritionally balanced and organically-sourced meals. You just heat and serve! I’ve been trying to incorporate more of a variety in finger foods and these meals are perfect. You can also purée! Just as good (if not better!) and wholesome as what I make, but without all the time and work πŸ™ŒπŸ»β € β € They have been kind enough to provide a a discount code! Use WHIT20 for $20 off their 24 meal box #raisedreal #realisperfect
I’m just over here swooning over my new stone essential oil diffuser from @vitruvi .😍 . . I don’t post much about essential oils, but they are one of the main things that made me a huge believer in natural remedies. I couldn’t believe the benefits my family experienced, and still do. I am really impressed with @vitruvi oils, and they seriously smell amazing.😍 Next up is diffusing Spruce to get it smelling like Christmas up in the Hall home.πŸ™ŒπŸ»
⁣ ⁣ When you DIY twice a year and have to take a picture or else you’ll forget you can be crafty if you want to. πŸ˜‚ On a more serious note keep reading for some thoughts that have been on my heart lately. πŸ‘‰πŸΌβ£ ⁣ This platform has it positives and one of them for me has been the mama community. Women supporting women, right? Lately I’ve been feeling drained when I get on here because I’ve been seeing a lot of this attitude that’s so disappointing to me. It looks like someone not being able to deal if another mama has a different story than they do and lashing out in negative comments on her personal profile. Just one example of a time I’ve seen this is when a breastfeeding mama is sharing about her story and experiences in her motherhood and she receives comments on how she shouldn’t share because it makes those who weren’t able to breastfeed feel bad about themselves. ⁣ ⁣ Let me break by saying I get it. It’s super shitty when you look around and see other women able to do things you aren’t able to. I get it more than most! I can’t do pregnancy. I cannot grow a baby and come out alive without intense daily medical intervention due to a severe form of a rare condition. Let me tell you, it sucks to put it lightly; that I can’t do something that most women can do without a second thought. And yeah every single time I see a pregnancy announcement it does sting. But this doesn’t mean I’m negative towards women who have a different story or outcome than me or that I feel the need to be hateful, rude or discouraging towards them because they’re able to do something I’m not. ⁣ ⁣ We have the power to choose how we react in any situation. We can choose to be happy for others in what they are able to do or instead choose to be bitter and spread negativity instead of being encouraging. ⁣ ⁣ There will always be others in life who can do something you are unable to, as hard as that is to handle at times. Be a woman who
