We are park obsessed lately! These girls can go down all the big slides all on their own and I seriously love how fearless they are. They could spend hours there. After this grandma and I took them to get tennis shoes so they won't get black feet anymore #sageandnova
This fall loop is turning me into a cooler mom. Our theme this week was Home Baked. Not only do I bake with my kids when they really should be getting to bed, I even let them touch the dough! These smiles were all worth it. Memories made, they learned to bake AND we got some yummy chocolate chip cookies too! .
Click on the tag to follow our loop to see what we all made this week! Next week’s theme of Faceless Self Portrait is going to be challenging, but that’s what this is all about! .

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places." Magic means something different to everyone. To me it is capturing those little moments in time that may not mean much now but in years to come will mean the world to you and your family. It is why being part of the team @magicofchildhood team is such an honour as I get to share beautiful photos taken by a talented and creative community.
Day 2 for this week's photo project.
Winnie is mostly missing her naps these days, but every third day or so she'll crash like this. 5 pm is not the best time for a child to nap, but it's a good time for the light.
Her: When she gets hurt she runs to Shea to kiss her and make it better. She can't stand if he's asleep so she screams "Bub" over and over trying to wake him up. She can't stand if he's even in a different room than her, I have so many pictures of her fingers under the bathroom door trying to get to him. No one can make her laugh like Shea can. She follows him around to the point of annoyance. She seeks his approval in everything she does. She's constantly watching him, idolizing him. She kisses him minimum 50 times a day.
Him: He takes care of Daisy in a way I didn't think a child was capable of. The second she cries he's running to her to pick her up and make it better. He sings to her and rubs her back. He has to hold her hand every time we're riding in the car. Daisy will grunt and beg Shea for whatever he's eating, so he gently takes a bite small enough for her, takes it out of his mouth and places it in hers. When I tell Daisy no or correct her in any way (and she cries) Shea tells me - demands me - to say sorry to her (will upload that compilation video soon). For the first year of her life he would try to breast feed her (again I'll upload that video soon). He gets her dressed in the morning, including putting on her shoes. He opens doors for her. Shares with her without me asking. He is so patient and gentle with her. He protects her from the big kids at the park, recently bowing up to an 8 year old at Chick Fil A that knocked her down. He worries about her before himself. He encourages her, always telling her what a great job she did or that he's proud of her. Nothing seems to bother him, from her pulling his hair or breaking his toys, it's like he understands she's a baby and gives her grace. He is beyond any hope I had for being a big brother. He is more thoughtful and mindful than most adults I know. He is an old and gentle soul and is so so good to her. #siblinggoalsAF
