Annie & Sybelle: 10 Months!

Rompers: Wildforest Handmade // Bows: Little Luba

Baby Bear Shirt: The InkPAD // Blanket: Growing A Little Love

These girls are 2 months away from their first birthday! This last month has been a big one, and we've been very busy in this house - hence the update being 2 weeks late... better late than never I suppose! They are busy little bees, and the only way I was getting pictures this month was to hand them a handful of veggie straws... Ah life with twins.

These sweet girlies are 100% on the move, and speedy, too. They crawl everywhere they want to go, and are pulling themselves up onto about everything they can get their little hands on. Baby proofing the house started this month, and now I have to find new homes for all of my plants, since we've already had a few dirty incidents and plant murders, RIP little aloe vera. 

The girls are starting to really interact with each other, and it is my most favourite thing of motherhood yet. They crawl towards each other and laugh as they get closer and closer to each other, they share food, they giggle with each other, it's just the sweetest little relationship I've ever seen. They absolutely love to "dance" (wiggle their middle) to pop songs such as Despacito. I miss country music, but the girls just want to groove, so pop music it is!

Annie has 6 teeth now, and Belle has 5. They are still teeny tiny, and have really slimmed out and lost some of their baby chub now that they're on the move, so a lot of their smaller clothes still fit really well. They can still fit 6 month sleepers, and anything from 3-6 month up, which is awesome to get so much use out of our really cute items. 

These little babes have had a lot of fun firsts this month, and are having such a blast. It's getting easier and easier to get out and about with them, and they're having more fun than ever. This month has been an absolute blast! This is a pretty short update, but we've just been really enjoying life together and spending as much time outside and unplugged as we can. It's also been crazy busy over at the shop, so life has been very full! 

Thanks so much for reading, I hope you're having a beautiful day!

A Memory

all-you-need-is-love.jpg

Childhood brings back so many memories for me. I can remember my big sister and I dressing up my little brother like a girl, putting hair products in his short blonde boy hair, and dressing him in our dresses that our mom made for us... the girls. I can remember my sister and I putting pigtails in my dad's short, military cut hair. I remember him braiding our hair. These memories are so special to me, but there are some that I carry with me every day. One memory I remember the most vividly was when driving in the car with my mom, listening to the radio, I asked, "Momma, why are all the songs about love?" Her response sticks with me every day of my life: "Well, can you think of anything more important?"

I don't remember if I replied or not, but gosh, her answer still gives me chills. When it comes down to it, when there is nothing else left, love is what will bring us all back to life.

Some day when my kids ask me questions like these I will remember my mother's words and let the love flow through me. The most important lesson was taught to me that day with my mother's simple words, and I have been trying to live by those words every day. To grow a little love. To bring love into the little things. To be in love with life.

These are my thoughts today, maybe one day soon I'll get back to posting actual pictures of my life but it's just SO COLD outside that I've been hibernating and just spending time with my thoughts. Anyways, I hope you can find some love in your life today, and that you remember the most important things in life are grown from love.

Take good care, lovelies!
