Vlog: Park dates + trying to figure out twin toddler discipline

Another vlog! I probably have talked about this in past posts, but Kyle and I wanted to start documenting our days, because there is nothing sweeter in life than looking back at these simple, beautiful days that make up our lives together. The good, the regular, and sometimes the frustrating moments. I want to remember it all, the same reason I started this blog!

I hope you enjoy these little snippits of our life, it’s been so fun for me to document our memories!

Happy weekend!

Two. My sweet baby girls have been blessing our lives with their smiles and sweet souls for two whole years now and while it seems to have flown by, it also feels like they have been in our world forever. There aren’t words to describe how deeply grateful I am for these two amazing humans, there never will be. They have changed me, they have taught me to grow in all ways possibly, and they have made my life so full of love and laughter and more sunshine than I ever thought possible. Being their mother is my dream come true.

Annie, my fire child. You are strong, passionate, and so so loving. Your smile lights up the whole room and your giggles make our home come alive. You protect your sister with all that you have and are the bossiest big sister in town. You are a little chatter box, and I love hearing you try new words. Your favourite thing is reading stories and repeating the words you hear mommy say. You’re starting to say full sentences and it might be the cutest thing I’ve ever heard. Your favourite sentence is “What’s that noise?!” and you love to watch football with dada and yell “TACKLE!” and “TOUCHDOWN!” Your love for your fur siblings is the most endearing thing to watch, you love to feed the dogs cat food, and they love you so much for it. You love to rough house with dada and make him laugh so much. I want to spend every moment with you, my little Annie goose, I love you so much.

Sybelle, my sunshine girl. You are quiet, sweet, independent, yet fierce all at the same time. Your presence is calming and brings us so much joy. You are thoughtful and helpful, and you love to take care of your sister, your dada and I. If we are eating, you always make sure to offer us more food, and insist we eat it when you offer. You remind me of your great grandmother who always made sure everyone had more than enough to eat. You are slowly starting to say more words, and your best word yet has been “Annie!” You love to say sister’s name, but your favourite word to say is “broke” when you furrow your little eyebrows and notice something has been broken, or “moon” when you see the moon in the sky. You are so quiet, yet when you read stories to yourself out loud, you let out this huge reading voice that always makes me laugh. You love when dada is around and always want him to “spin” and dance with you. You make our house so full of sunshine, little Belle, I love you so much.

This year will bring us many more memories, a new baby sister, and lots and lots of learning. I know it will be yet another incredible year of watching you grow, I can’t wait to learn with you. I love you both so so much my sweet baby girls.

Love, your mama.

23 Weeks Pregnant With Baby #3! + a new vlog

Good grief, I actually had to check my app to see how far along I am in this pregnancy! It’s no joke when they say pregnancy while also having other kids goes by SO fast! I am 23 weeks, which is over halfway with this sweet little girl in my belly, I can hardly believe it. The weeks and days are flying by and every day I get more and more excited to meet her and hold her little tiny self.

She is moving SO much lately and it brings me so much joy to feel her wiggles. I have been really anxious throughout this pregnancy and I’m not really sure why, but feeling her move brings me so much peace and reassurance.

She is sitting super low, my belly button has popped! Which makes me laugh so much because I was so huge during my pregnancy with the twins, and my belly button never popped that time around. I’m having a hard time bending over and picking things up already, again, because she’s so low. I also feel so out of breath already! Things this time around seem to just be happening so much earlier than with the twins.

I have had so much more energy over the last few weeks which has made life a lot easier, compared to the first trimester. I still often am not feeling well but am definitely feeling like myself again which makes all the difference.

These photos were taken by my wonderful friend Charlotte, who helped me film our gender reveal as well, the photos of the girls make me smile so much. They’re starting to look like such big kids!

Also, I posted a new vlog on our youtube channel, take a look below if you’re interested!

Happy fall!
