Weekend vibes. ✌🏻 We've made a grocery run, grabbed a fast food lunch, played with @jess.l.rains and her sweet new puppy, and now the kids are blissfully snoring. I might just join them! 😴☀️ #samandlulu #weekend #babylife #toddlerlife #bigbrother #babysister

It's Wednesday library day for these two cuties, and quite a momentous one for big brother!! He's been attending story time since he was about six months old. But recently, he has become a bit bored with the same little nursery rhymes and lap bounces. They offer a "grown up" class for parents to leave big siblings in at the same time. He's been curious about the big class for weeks, but never had the courage to go inside. Today, he decided he was ready. He walked in the door and stayed the whole time without a tear. He even made a little dinosaur skeleton craft all by himself. 😱😭😭👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 ...and I took "helicopter mom" to a whole new level by skipping Lucy's class and creeping around peeking at him through the bookshelves. To say I was shocked is an understatement. We are only a few short months removed from watching him visibly tremble with nerves any time another child approached the play structure he was playing on at the park, or struggle to make eye contact with an adult. He tells me he doesn't want to go back next week 😂 but that's ok. This is small potatoes to most, but an extremely proud moment for Samuel and our family! Thank you, Jesus, for baby steps and small successes! #samandlulu #samuelscott #busytoddler

Sometimes, you see something and know that you have to have it at any cost. For me, these tiny Harry Potter leggings were that. 😂😍 Seriously, they're my favorite. And so cozy! #obsessed Check out @shoppeakthreads for these and other adorable little wears. #harrypotter #lucymichele #hogwarts #lunalovegood #babystyle #babysister #babylife

Samuel, you outshine the morning sun, my son! ☺️ Enjoying his first snow cone this summer. He thought long and hard about his selection, and settled on Purple Cow. 😘 Sweetest little boy! #hamilton #deartheodosia #samuelscott #twoyearold #bigbrother #babyboy #babystyle #toddlerstyle #toddlerlife

Well, we attended our first graduation for Lulu this morning, and you can see our tiny Kindermusik scholar strutting out the door for the last time, proudly waving her diploma high. 🙌🏻 I can't wait to see all of the musical contributions she makes to the world thanks to her expert shaker-shaking, bell-ringing, drum-tapping and scarf-waving. 🙃 We love Kindermusik! Our second baby graduate of the little program. ❤️💋💋 #lucymichele #babygirl #babysister #kindermusik #babystyle

We took our brood to enjoy their first snow cone of the season this afternoon ... actually the first snow cone ever for baby sister! They were both adorably excited about their selections, and gloriously sticky when we strapped them back into their car seats. I'd call that a success! 👏🏻👏🏻👅 #samandlulu #snowcone #summer #almost #toddlerlife

So many patriotic outfits, so little time. Luckily, we have a couple of holidays coming up. And luckily, Lucy goes through like 4 outfits per day. Also luckily, we are American all year long. Sooooo, looks like it's all gonna be aight! 🇺🇸🇺🇸💋 #americangirl #lucymichele #oneyearold #merica #murica #usa #babygirl #babylife #babystyle

Stopping for some green apples, pretzels and string cheese. Simple lunch at the zoo!! Now, trying to pack a little bag of necessities in case things get crazy around here this afternoon. Praying hard on behalf of our whole Okie family that we all stay safe during severe weather and tornadoes. So much scarier when you have babies to care for! Everyone - make a plan!!! 🌪️🚫 #samandlulu #okwx #lunchbreak #babysister #babystyle #toddlerlife #zoo

What a beautiful day today! ☀️ I gifted my lovely mama with some photos with my babies for Mother's Day. We made the most of it by sharing a picnic in the garden and spending hours "esploring". We broke through all the cobwebs hiding in the rocks, startled a big group of sunning turtles into the stream, spotted some great big fish, marveled at a mother goose with 3 doting goslings, and even shared some peanuts with the squirrels... nevermind the fact that they became extremely emboldened and sort of staged a somewhat terrifying mutiny against us with all of their friends a few minutes later. 😐 We always love spending the day with Emmie, and today was extra special! Can't wait to treat Grammie to her photo day soon. ❤️ #samandlulu #grandma #mothersday #mothernature #grandkids

This is one of my favorite days of the year to celebrate!! God has blessed me with the most amazing and selfless mother who has been a constant source of love, wisdom, support, mentorship and a guiding light in my life. He also granted me a precious gem of a mother-in-love who never ceases to bring joy and gentle kindness to our family. And most of all, I'm extremely honored to be celebrated alongside those who came before me as a mother myself. So eternally thankful for the gift of the two little babies who call me mommy! They fulfill me, refill me, refine me, challenge me, exhaust me, enrapture me, and give me such purpose each new morning. Happy Mother's Day to all the precious mothers out there in the trenches with me, and to those who have forged the path before me. And a special prayer to everyone who is hurting on this day. 🙏🏻❤️👶🏼👦🏼 #samandlulu #mothersday #happymothersday #momlife

Some extra tickle time with daddy before we drop this little guy off for an overnight adventure with his Grammie and Pops! They're taking him to a farm, out to dinner, to buy a new truck at the toy store, and to play at the park for a while. And when he wakes up in the morning, he's requested Pops' famous French toast. ☺️ I guess it's not any wonder the last time we left him with them, he asked, "Mama, why are you leaving?" And when I replied and told him I was going on a date with his daddy, he said, "No, I said why AREN'T you leaving? Why haven't you left yet?" 😐😐😐😂 #samuelscott #busytoddler #toddlerlife #grandmashouse

I'm kinda dying about this little baby in this outfit. She's been shopping today!! 😍😍😍😍 @oldnavy

britneemichele (@britneemichele)

A haircut for my big boy, shopping @oldnavy, and even caught lunch with their daddy on this beautiful, sunshiny Friday!! Now, it's time for naps. 🙌🏻😴 #samandlulu #bigbrother #babylife #babysister #babystyle

Sam had earned three little dollars doing odd jobs for me around the house, and decided he wanted to take them with him to the science museum today. We checked the price of all the dinosaurs, trains, experiment kits and boomerangs we could find, but as you can imagine $3 doesn't go too far in the museum gift shop. Eventually, after much consideration, he chose to spend his money on a rock candy sucker for himself, and asked if he had enough to get one for his sister too. 😍😭😭 proud mama moment. He shaping up to be a pretty delightful young man. •
