Today we are talking all about my babies. WOW, look at them in the above picture. I cannot believe how much they have grown! Noelia is blossoming into a young lady before my eyes and Miss Reina is already 7 months old. Time is a thief…truly! Along with today’s motherhood update I wanted to share some little styles that I have been loving lately. Weather wise, this is my least favorite time of year but retail wise…I dig it! All the stores and brands are gearing up for Spring and swimwear is on racks in most stores. It is a sweet reminder that the dreariness of Midwest Winters is SOON OVER. I love shopping for myself but I love shopping for my girls MORE. I am living every little girls dream…playing dress up every day! #GIRLMOM
These two girlies truly rock my world. I cant imagine my life without them nor do I want my life before them. They have brought me so much joy and meaning to my life. I have learned so many life lessons after becoming a mother and realized/uncovered my own path after having them. I talk more about this HERE in THIS post but essentially I would not have Vida Noel without Noelia. I would not have quit my 8-4 job if weren’t for Reina. They have both been the little engines that have pushed me forward and I could not be more grateful for them!
I saw this quote the other day that said…
“You don’t realize when you’re growing up that you are also watching your parents grow up”
How true is that? I was only 23 when I had Noelia. I definitely was not ready for that pregnancy (nor is anyone ever) but it made me mature in such a beautiful way. I will be the first to admit that Noelia has seen the worst of me. She has seen me be a bad mom many days, make mistakes, fights with Brody, and mini life lessons in-between. I do regret many days where I wasn’t a good mom but I do know that I am human and “growing up” just like she is. There is no life manual for parenthood. There is no right or wrong way to do things outside of morality. You just kind of figure it out. I grow each day with my girls. I grow alongside them and I am very excited that I get to experience life and grow with my forever best friends. I love our girl gang!
I will cherish these sweet moments forever
Toddler Styles // Loving Lately
Shopping for Noelia is oh so fun but also challenging. She is her own little person and knows what she likes. She loves wearing tutus, headbands (‘lots of them!), sparkles, and above all else…DRESSES. That girl would wear a dress everyday if she could. She is my mini Fashion Queen and she glows because of it! I have to take a step back when it comes to dressing her and allow her to be her own person. To my surprise…she actually can put a dang good outfit together! Ive said this a million times but I will say it again…watching her grow up has confirmed in me that she will be someone someday. A planet shaker, a world changer, a LIGHT. She has big things coming and I cannot wait to see what God has in store for our Noelia Nicole.
Forever and always my baby you’ll be
Baby Finds // Loving Lately
My Roo Roooooo!! Gosh I love this girl so much. Staying home with her is something I will never, ever regret doing. I am so thankful that I get to. Spending all my days with her has given so much LIFE to my everyday. It is exhausting, but so rewarding. I get to witness all her little milestones and really see that spunky personality. She is my wild baby. My smiley, happy, rambunctious Reina Roo. She is so full of spirit! Her smile is infectious and her giggle is what makes all the hard days worth it. I am so happy God blessed me with another girl. Although I was scared at first, I already know Noelia and Reina will be attached at the hip. Their relationship is already so sweet to watch.

All of God’s Grace in that tiny face!
The days may be long but the love is strong. Remember that, Mama’s! The love and precious moments will always outweigh the bad days. Cherish those precious babies every second that you can. Tomorrow is never promised.
