My son’s always been a big fan of a good seek and find book - and they really don’t come any cooler than Mr Tweed and the Band in Need. Well, who doesn’t like searching for the lost members of an animal jazz band in the zoo alongside a dapper chap with an impossibly tall top hat? 🤷🏻‍♀️The quirky, retro illustrations are a delight, and the searching difficulty is perfectly pitched for younger detectives 🕵🏻🕵🏻‍♀️. Oh and as an added bonus, it has even taught my son the names of some new musical instruments 🎷🎺 🎵. All in all - a pretty groovy read. #raisingreaders .... #from_your_perspective #mycolourfulkids #livefolk #simplychildren #yeskidsbookstagram #kidsbookstagram #kidlitart #kidlit #bookish #picturebook #dailyparenting #readaloudrevival #homeschool #momentsofmine #hiyapapayaphotoaday #flashesofdelight #myhappyviews #kidsforreal #childhoodunplugged #mytinymoments #cameramama #motherhoodthroughinstagram #littlefamiliesofig #pbloggers #ourplayfulstyle #motherhoodiscolorful #hurrahforplay #childrenseemagic

Sharing a papaya breakfast boat with my girl. 💛 A breakfast that looks rather fancy but is actually super easy and speedy to put together! Simply cut a papaya into half, scoop out the seeds, fill with muesli and a few spoonfuls of yoghurt and fruits. Then get a spoon and dig in! #yummy #healthyeating

At the airport ✈️ I couldn't have hoped for a better trip with two babes. They were both SO good! My little guy is so grown up! And my girly slept the entire flight. 🤗😍 #blessedparents I'm so glad we all survived! 😜👍🏼 #travelingwithkids #lifewithlittles #michaniefamily #sommersunshinetrip2017 ...... #lifegivingsquares #toddlerlife #ig_kids #motherhoodthroughinstagram #vscocam #momlife #blessedmama #postthepeople #darlingmovement #instabest #mama #babymama #childhoodunplugged #documentyourdays #childrenofinstagram #mytinymoments #motherhoodrising #mylittlehuman #vscodaily #humaneffect #inbeautyandchaos #travel #vacationmode #florida

Today (technically tomorrow but these photos are way too good to wait that long 😜) we celebrate the end of Evie’s fourth trimester and the beginning of the “everything get’s so much easier after the first 3 months” 🤷🏼‍♀️... really? Because I can’t wait! 🤦🏼‍♀️ Don’t get me wrong... I already miss little tiny squishy Evie but mothering a newborn is hard work. 12 weeks of sleep deprivation haven’t been fun at all & having no family close doesn’t help either! BUT to see her each day that passes more awake to this world, discovering her voice with "arghoo", "argha" and "gooooooo”, blowing bubbles with her saliva, touching her face with her little hands, being so sociable and engaging with people... it’s just absolutely magical. She is definitely not a newborn anymore she is becoming a little girl 😢🤷🏼‍♀️ As much as I was looking forward to this day to come, as I dreamt so much about the “it gets so much easier” phase I just want her to continue being that tiny little sweet fairy that I can hold forever in my arms. I love you my Evie Mae 💜 #EvieMaeLloyd #12weeksold #endoffourthtrimester.

The thing about being a mum is just when you think you have got your stuff sorted, when you’re all organised, or your on top of the washing, or the cleaning, or bedtime routines life comes along and messes it all up... Poor lil Isla has been having lots digestive issues of late & that's why we were excited to try @bubsaustralia Goat Toddler Milk 🐐We shared our thoughts on the blog & so they say... link is in profile ✌🏻Emmy Xx #islaoneill #bubspartner #ad

The amount of energy kid's have always amazes me. And when people say "at least they will sleep good" I give them the glair/eye roll 🙄 and think: HA! Not my kid! Any other mamma have a toddler like this?! Energy for days, this girl.

Fresh out the bath, feelin so right, a few books and songs, to finish the night. Some snuggles with mama, moments to keep, she closes her eyes, and drifts off to sleep. #nighttimeroutine

I studied at a specific Starbucks all throughout college & nursing school. I had to have the biggest table, the perfect pen, & an iced coff. When I started bible studying- I followed a pretty similar regimen:Bible ✔️Journal ✔️Highlighters ✔️Headphones ✔️Coff ✔️Perfect pen (so my journal entry & prayers would be pretty 🙄) ✔️OCD much?After having Paige, I soon realized it wasn’t possible to continue this study routine. & to be honest I didn’t adjust well. I told myself I would have all of my materials handy so that when Paige napped I could dive right in. Those moments were far & few between. I was either enjoying some cuddles & catching zzz’s myself or cleaning like crazy. It’s taken me a long time to find a balance in this area of my life. I desired Gods word but could not find a way to merge study time with this little geel that needed me.I’ve learned that God works so differently from this image I had conjured up in my mind. He is WITH us in every season & in every moment. It took a while for the lightbulb to turn on, but I realized I just needed to invite him INTO the busyness. Lately I’ve been taking advantage of the bible app on my phone. Small, meaningful devotionals while in the bathroom for five minutes can go a long way. I may not have my actual bible accessible during naps & I might not have the best bible highlighter but I can listen to a sermon, a podcast or sit & simply pray. & if it’s a no nap day- Paige & I do it together.Try viewing your prayer life as a continuous conversation versus this rigid, structured thing you can’t seem to master. There’s a rhythm of grace that will fit your lifestyle & your season— I’d encourage you to find it. I’m sure enjoying finding mine!P.S. I opened up the Bible app to snap this shot & Paige made her way to Proverbs 14: The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.Committing that one to memory this week because.. I’m trying to be a builder over here. 🙏🏻💛

I’m always wondering what this sweet boy is thinking about. Sometimes I ask, and sometimes I like to just let him be with his thoughts. It’s a beautiful place to explore, and he’s a beautiful soul. #malachikiran

Last night Finn said to us that sometimes it felt like just Chance, Leo and I were a family and not him. When I asked him why he said it was because we always hold and check on Leo and not him.As heartbreaking as it was, I really appreciated him being open and honest with how he was feeling. It allowed me to get down to his level and explain to him why Leo needed that bit of extra attention as a baby and how Finn got that same level but even more so when he was a baby. That Finn was lucky to have us to himself for 4 whole years and Leo won't have that like he did. It allowed me to address his emotions and help him feel better. I love that despite maybe feeling a bit jealous of the attention that he never once has directed any angst towards Leo. His level of maturity astounds me often. I aim to always have honest and open communication with my kids so they can be open and honest gentleman when they're older (and we all know how much we love a man that can communicate right ladies?!?! 😋😋😋🤣🤣🤣)••••#motherhood #mytinymoments #simplychildren #livethelittlethings #childhood #childhoodunplugged #bestofmom #cameramama #momswithcameras #makingmemories #ig_motherhood #mamablogger #honestparenting #brothers #lifewithkids #mummyblogger #mumlife #momlife #thatsdarling #parenthood_unveiled
