#tbt because my little chunky baby is getting taller and his dimples are going away. 😭😭😭
Remember that one time we went to the Zoo and drove around for 30+ minutes looking for a parking spot because it was so nice outside, but so did everyone else and then we got there and Emmett didn’t care about one animal and only wanted dipndots so we got them and left?? 🦓 🦒 😅😅 #ZooAtlanta@23_dco
These two. These the best two Valentines a girl could ask for. They spent 3 days decorating, shopping, and wrapping presents for me while I was out of town for work. It was the first time I had ever left Emmett and Daniel has never had Emmett duties day and night by himself. Especially not 4 days in a row with no help. Let’s just say... he gets dad of the year and Emmett still wins cutest ever. My heart is happy to be home and beyond thankful for these two. @23_dco 🤦🏻♀️ sorry I’m so sappy! I’m just happy to be reunited with my people!
Brb crying because I’m leaving my baby for the first time ever. 😭😭😭😭 y’all.. pray for @23_dco - he’s a single parent for the next 3 nights. 😅🙀
@marisaisaisa said it was national women in sports day. So that means it’s true. ❤️❤️ If it weren’t for sports, for the mental toughness, for the failure, for the relationships and bonds that have formed... I wouldn’t be halfway near where I am today. Hard work, people. Sweat. Grit. Dedication. Nothing beautiful in life comes easy.
SHOUTOUT TO @chickfila for giving us the COOLEST work cafe ever. Give me all of the subway tiles, wooden beams, concrete floors and coffee (even though I don’t even like it). I can’t wait to collaborate and create here more often. Big thanks to @rachellynnn1991 for having a mid-afternoon date with me!! #chickfila#thrivecoffee#workcafe
Well, I think I have stopped crying long enough to finally shout that my baby is ONE. The best part of this year has been watching Emmett grow up. His cute laugh (that sounds like a grown man), his facial expressions, his pouty lip, when he hugs me tight and licks me all over, the way he tilts his head when he’s trying to be cute, the way he shouts and yells when i one is looking at him, the way he spits out his food and thinks it’s funny, the way he hits me really hard and then gets sad and comes to kiss me... this kid wins. He wins at life. Never ever ever did I imagine I’d be so obsessed with someone (besides Daniel). I am SO honored that God chose us to be his parents. HBD, Emmett. #nomorecake#stopwiththesugar#hatedeverysecond#EllenRateMyBaby
As I sit here tonight thinking of something super inspirational (eye roll) to post.. my mind is blank. Because while I am so confident that 2018 will bring some huge blessings, I’m still trying to grow out of this place of limbo I lived in for 2017. It has been the most challenging and the most rewarding year I’ve ever experienced. Physically, mentally, spiritually.. I’ve been at a disciplined place and a completely broken place. I’ve been proud of myself and I’ve asked myself what I’m even doing. And as I’ve been going through my thoughts on the year, all I can do is be thankful for the growth that it brought. Being a wife and being a mother are two of the greatest gifts I could have ever been given. And it seems like God knew I needed them to experience these growing pains with. Last week, I felt like a rebel and decided I wasn’t waiting until 2018 to start a new season. I ordered some books, started a new prayer journal and have genuinely felt a huge peace in my heart. Solely for starting. For not putting it off, for not choosing tired as my excuse, for not needing that extra 30 minutes of sleep. Y’all.. there are so many things we need to do and have to do everyday... but your self-growth and development should be just as important as anything else. It’s a choice. An intentional choice to just make it happen. If you’re waiting on it, you’re just going to keep waiting. Make things happen.
We knew he was being too quiet. Turned around and found him licking the bottom of @23_dco chili bowl. #facepalm 😂😂 hopefully the hot sauce doesn’t come back to haunt us tomorrow? 🤷🏻♀️
I feel like I need to share this cuteness with everyone! 😂😂 #soundon@23_dco
I’ve officially become “that mom.” My entire social media consists of photos of my child. Big thanks to @23_dco and @therealmustachecash for trying to entertain Emmett so I could have at least one Christmas photo of him.
