We are lucky enough to still be in contact with one of our amazing midwives! I love that she can watch Noah grow!
She was amazing and so helpful after my emergency c section, helped me with feeds, nappy changes, nothing was too much trouble! These midwives dont get enough appreciation for their hard work in my opinion! We were so lucky to have such amazing ones!
Mommy daughter day shopping + picking flowers while dad is golfing. She’s cute when she wants to be ☺️ #havenmae
Let’s talk about Aloe Vera.
Summer’s almost over, and you need to enjoy this beautiful weather before the cold rolls in. But long days in the sun will leave your skin burnt and feeling dehydrated.
Aloe Vera is a great way to hydrate your skin, treat sunburns, and can even help with irritable bowel disease.
Happy Saturday out there in the sun! ☀️ #MADEOF
DAY 17 •• PARK LIFE #projectbabyandme My other baby haha BUDDY the frenchie! He’s a rescue and he’s bonkers but we love him. He obviously loves the park! But also I don’t have any pictures of Bobbi at the park yet so I’m cheating🙈🦆 PS swipe for a delight
-👶🏼 who else absolutely loved being pregnant?
I absolutely loved my whole pregnancy from start to finish, I suffered from no sickness what so ever apart from in labour! I loved watching my bump get bigger each week and found it simply amazing what my body could do!
Every minute was just amazing and them little kicks, just melted my heart every time! One thing i didnt like was my strech marks, but ive since learnt to embrace them as they arent going anywhere any time soon! I still find it fascinating that my chunky 9lb 5oz baby grew in there!👶🏼🧡 -
Our baby is FOUR! She is wild, fearless, and takes no crap. She’s also the sweetest big sister, a friend who includes others, and has a sharp sense of humor. Basically everything I ever prayed for. Some things I never want to forget:
💫 Her most asked-for birthday gift was a purple skateboard 🛹. 💫 “Can I have onemoregotosleepandnomorethat’sit?” 🎶 💫 She gives no less than 3 goodbye kisses at school drop off 💋. 💫 Her favorite movie is Tangled. 💫 She requests her hairstyles by princess: “Can I have Elsa/Anna/Rapunzel/Ariel hair?” 👑 💫 Her Poppy is her best friend and they go on “rides” almost every night 👴🏽. 💫 Her favorite food is pizza 🍕.
💫 Her (current) favorite book is Green Eggs and Ham 📚. 💫 Before she leaves the house she has to give a kiss and hug to every family member, including Scooter 🐶. #RememberThis#LexieatFOUR
Hakuna Matata, what a wonderful phrase. 🌿 Sophia literally begged me to take a picture here and you guys don’t understand how HARD it is to get her to WANT to take a picture, so of course I did. She didn’t cooperate 100% as I had hoped (she covered half of her face), but I’ll take it. 🤷🏽♀️ I’ve recently been in debate with a few people as to which movie they prefer - Lion King 1 or 2. Lion king 1 is obviously a classic, but one of my all time favorite Disney movies has always been Lion King 2. Plus, Kovu is 🔥 (please tell me I’m not the only who thinks this! lol). What’s your favorite Disney movie?
Running around on a Saturday afternoon in my favorite top of all time 🙌🏻 Not only is it a dream to wear, the compliments I get make me feel so special ❤️ My fiancé may be getting jealous 😆 Get it if you need an automatic boost in your self esteem!! #krbtribe
Everyone asks what it’s like having 3 and usually the quick answer is something about complete chaos ☺️ Today my answer is it is SO special to see these tiny humans form relationships with each sibling and each one being so unique. Especially Collins. How stinking cool is it that she gets to be a little sister AND a big sister? And she is just killing the big sister game these days. Dallas thinks she walks on water (all the while Brooks thinks she is his annoying little sister right now lol). I hope they stay close forever. Annoying or not. #asherbabes#collinsndallas
Because mom and dad need to have photographs together too. A little from last night’s session.
So when’s the last time you had photos taken of just you and your loved one? @maritwilliamsphoto we’re doing this for our family session too because we haven’t had any photos of just us since our wedding five years ago. ;P
One of Madelyn’s favorite things to do: sit in Lucy’s dog bed and read. Here she’s enjoying a @selenaqofficial book!! 🥰
Atlantic waters, purple hair, knobby knees on summer legs.
HOMECOMING FUN!!!!!! 🎠🎡🎢
These sweeties conquered all the rides and had an absolute blast!!
Happy *ALMOST * 8th Birthday AMan!
Having a slow Saturday over here. Just rearranging some things, playing with our girl, and making a Starbucks run. On a side note, Colette is obsessed with that little kitten. Just trying to think of the perfect name of her. Any ideas?
Coco’s adorable romper is from @vasenia.m This shop makes the most lovely vintage looking baby clothes. So sweet. 💕
THIS SUNROOM: I’m exhausted and there’s so much left to be done, but how can I look at this scene without being swelled with pride at all we’ve done here. I’ll try to show more before and after photos soon, but for now- it’s time to go plant shopping. 🌿
Walking into Sunday with a happy heart 💕 thanks for sharing with us @the.oakley.girls x

Настя для Миши сейчас самая лучшая компания, несмотря на 3 года разницы🙌🏻за это время они так сильно сдружились, и все меньше проскакивает колкостей в адрес друг друга, меньше криков, соперничества. Смена обстановки и некоторая изоляция нашей семьи от привычного для них мира с бабушками, друзьями, нашим домом, пошла им на пользу🙌🏻
HEY DADS! You're a part of this too! Being on the same page as your spouse/partner is SO IMPORTANT.

You cannot stop a woman on a mission✨
Who is committed to her RISE, purpose, passion, and abundance, more then she is committed to her fear, struggle and suffering
A woman who knows no boundaries but knows her own, goes DEEP in to the work, the inner work, constantly
Only to continue rising like the queen she is, stripping away any trauma, beliefs, identities, that she is no longer available to carry
A woman who is committed to herself first and foremost
And a woman who has completely and entirely validated herself
I’m feeling more fierce, grounded and complete within myself then I ever have before, with a love for myself and others, stronger then I ever have before
I won’t stop for anything
Tone it down for anything
It’s a powerful place to land
I see you Babes
And I honour you FULLY
May we continue to RISE 🔥🙏👑💎
He’s going to be the BEST BIG BROTHER ever and it absolutely warms my heart 😍
He lights up whenever he sees a baby, he’s always pulling Rowan’s ultrasound picture off my nightstand to give it a kiss, and snuggles with the bump are now a nightly thing. It seems so surreal to think that in a few short months, the world as we know it will be completely flipped on it’s head, but I honestly couldn’t be more excited for this chapter of our lives.

These two cuties had a blast at the Muse today! 👯♀️💕 What a cool place!! #museknox
the last weekend of summer vacation ✨ We’ve spent it doing some last minute school shopping, getting the house cleaned and organized for the week ahead, and 500 loads of laundry 🙃 I can’t believe school is starting already, and that it will only be me and Everly at home during the day. It’s going to be so quiet, I’m not going to know what to do with myself 😬
I love the slow, lazy days of summer but I’m looking forward to being back in a routine, and more than anything, FALL 🍂 Let’s fast forward to October and I’ll be perfectly happy 🎃
This one turns 2 on Monday and low key I am not okay 😥 why is it that your baby’s birthdays make you feel like you’re going to blink and be 90 😣
Отдых с детьми это классно, весело, но почти всегда очень энергозатратно. Сравнивая свой июнь, когда я работала практически без выходных, и свой отпуск, пытаюсь разобраться когда ж я больше уставала, и похоже что именно сейчас, потому что стабильно засыпаю днём вместе с Настей 🙈 работать не выходит вообще, потому что к моменту как укладываю детей спать, нет сил уже ни на что. Не представляю как справляется муж, он то вообще не перестаёт работать 😁 в моих мечтах на сегодня было посещение художественно-исторического музея с большой коллекцией Брейгеля, но так случилось что мы проходили мимо океанариума, и зависли там почти на 2 часа. Погладили рыб, поползали по туннелям под аквариумами, прошлись по навесным мостикам в «тропиках», а потом ещё совершили 4х-часовую прогулку по центру, до которого мы наконец-то добрались на 4-й день)) хорошо иметь в запасе хотя бы 6 дней, и не пытаться увидеть все и сразу. Я уже давно отбросила эту затею. Я конечно повздыхала в квартале музеев, но 2-3 музея это наш предел, в этот раз и в этом составе 😁
Колюнька отметил свой второй летний фестиваль #vetersummerfest ♥️Поплясать под отличную музыку, пообщаться с любимыми мейкерами, напитаться вдохновением и пощелкаться традиционно у фургончика с цветами:) Славное лето! Любовь в воздухе:) #vetersummerfest
3 WAYS TO BUILD A CHRISTIAN HOME
1. Starting from the time your children are small, they should be hearing you talk about God. “Wow, would you look at that sunset? God is such a great artist,” or “Look at how beautiful God made the autumn leaves.” Take the time daily to be pointing God out throughout the day.
2. Have family devotions, a time set aside every day that you read and pray together as a family. It can be as simple as reading through Proverbs, singing a hymn and praying out loud or you could choose to do a Bible study, act out some Bible stories or memorize scripture together. You could do this anytime during the day, but my two favorite times are right before we start school in the morning and after supper is over in the evening.
3. Tuck your children in bed at night and pray with them. You can take this time to ask them how their day was, if anything is bothering them, and then you pray, allow them to pray and then a hug and kiss goodnight.
How are you building your Christian home?
