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’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.

How will I ever say no to this face? 😭 I don’t think there is enough room in my heart for all the love I have for this kid.

We made it. ONE YEAR as husband and wife. In the last 18 months, we have bought a house, found out we were going to be parents, gotten engaged, Daniel graduated college, we got married, Emmett was born, Daniel got his first job, I went back to work and we had to wait 3 months before Emmett could come to the daycare here, Daniel got sent to the academy, Emmett started school, I got a promotion, and Daniel graduates the academy this week..... I can’t say that we knew any of this was going to happen. The best and worst thing that Daniel and I have in common is that we are so “go with the flow” and don’t really have set plans for anything. It can be a blessing and a curse at times. BUT HERE WE ARE. One year (yesterday) later and we love each other more than we did a year ago, more than we did last week and more than we did yesterday. Marriage is hard, but marriage is awesome. @23_dco, you and Emmett are my peoples. #blessup #anotherone

“You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own limitations and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you - it’s something inherent. You exist, therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough.” | through various seasons of change, I’ve been feeling the weight of the world these last few weeks. It seems like, no matter what I do, I can’t catch a breath. Yesterday was refreshing. To laugh, and to smile and to breathe and to exist. To be with people who are worth being around. Much love to you, people.

@23_dco is this what I look like when you get on to me for staring at people?? His new thing is turning completely upside down to look at people, what they’re eating, or to be silly so they look at him. It’s so freaking cute, I can’t stand it. @therealmustachecash 📸

If anyone has ever known me in my life, you know that I hate confrontation, have given too many second chances, and have never been one to speak up. I would have rather compromised my own beliefs than hurt someone else’s feelings or make someone mad. And that’s just something that’s always been a part of me.... being a momma is a game changer... loving a baby teaches you how to face your fears. You stick up to people you never have, you voice your opinion because your child’s life matters and it is YOUR choice, you squish bugs because they’re scared, you stand tall so they can watch you be courageous, you speak up so they know they can have a voice. It is incredible how your life changes once you live for something bigger than just yourself and your own wants/needs. Self”less” is the new cool thing. #imnotaregularmomimacoolmom
