Goodnight, friends! 💕 we are all settling down for an early bedtime today. Big day at the zoo coming up tomorrow. 🦍🐘🐻 PS - I'm loving all of our new bonnets from @littleluccalove!! PERFECT for keeping precious ears cozy this spring, and so sooooo cute. I'm obsessed. #lucymichele #tenmonths

Lazy morning getting ready for library day, our favorite day of the week. The hard part = collecting all six trillion library books that are under the couches, in the cars, and otherwise scattered through the whole house. 📚📚😪 #samandlulu #bigbrother #babysister #siblings

An evening jog with this cute little elf-ette was a double whammy. I got my workout, and she fell adorably sound asleep in the stroller, so bedtime was a cinch. 💪🏻💯💯 #lucymichele #tenmonths #momlife #babysister

This is just way too cute not to try for... 💁🏼 I'm entering ten month old baby Lucy! She would be absolutely precious in these clothes. She's the most delightful little thing. Loves cottage cheese, yogurt, her brother, and bath time. She's a sweet American beauty :) thanks for considering us! #lunaenthusiast

This is my self-pity face. Both kids are snoozing, and I think I've earned myself a nap too. Samuel has been absolutely putting me through the wringer for the last few days. If the answer is no, he immediately bursts into full-blown sobbing tears and takes like 20 minutes to put himself back together. Then 3 minutes later, he asks for chocolate for lunch, and we start all over. He really thinks this should be Sam's world, and no one else's. He's spent 90% of the weekend and today reluctantly sitting in time out. I'm wiped. Surely this is not forever... right?! 😫😫😫🍷🙏🏻 #momlife #toddlerlife #dead #killinme

I enjoyed a girls' day with Lu today while Sam played at grandma's. I gave her belly some extra tickles, spun her around in circles with me, and quickly answered her beckoned calls. She ate it up! 👸🏼💕 Life is so much different for a second baby. I love it when I get some special alone time with either of my darlings. #lucymichele #tenmonths

Been trying to vacuum the rug for half an hour. Gonna have to wait until Miss Curiosity takes her afternoon nap because she's ALL UP IN MY BUSINESS! Kind of her jam, being up in business. 🙌🏻🙃 #lucymichele #tenmonths #sahm

Bedroom redo #sneakpeek! It's coming along.... our furniture is set to arrive on Friday. Seems like ages! Can't wait to put it all together. 😘 #samuelscott #redo #remodel #thelesserfour #cleanstart #newyear

Saturday, and the livin's easy in the Lesser household... unless you're over the age of two. In which case, you've been HUSTLING your tail off on some spring cleaning all day long. Garage is mostly cleaned out. House is spotless. Mom and dad are wiped out. Bedtime, a cold drink, and some binge-y tv is going to go hard tonight. 😪😪😪 #samuelscott

Over the last week, this girl has become desperately attached to mama! I can't leave a room without hearing little palms slapping the ground behind me as she crawls as fast as her chubby legs can take her after me. And if I ever stop for an instant, she's pulled up to stand on my leg. She's also become very skilled at saying "mama, mama" in a pathetic/adorable voice. After months of being sure this social butterfly wouldn't be able to pick me out of a lineup, I kind of love it. 💕#lucymichele #tenmonths

Well, last night was one I won't soon forget. Samuel took a shower with me before bed, as he often does. When we went to get out of the shower, by some unfortunate stroke of terrible luck, he started to grab something that was near the metal shower door hinge at the same moment that I cracked it open, and his entire fingernail (and a fair bit more) was torn from his left index finger. I can't explain exactly how it all happened, although @okcscott and I have tried to recreate it. Sam was extraordinarily tough. He only cried for a few minutes, and continued to play after we got him cleaned and bandaged up. I, on the other hand, have been a bit of a basket case - wracked with guilt and grief. I have shed many tears behind closed doors, and even woke in the middle of the night last night so haunted by the bloody scene replaying in my mind that I didn't go back to sleep. 😭 To involuntarily injure your child is probably the worst feeling I've ever felt. So, tonight, we are at @sarasaracupcakes eating our feelings (or rather, my feelings) with cupcakes the size of our heads! Please say a prayer for my baby's finger, and for mama too! 🙏🏻😫 #samuelscott #ouch #reallife

Poor little Lulu doesn't know how to be unpleasant. She has to work SO. HARD. to force a little whine out. Kills me every time. 😂 #lucymichele #ninemonths #happybaby

It's beautiful weather for cracking open some new sidewalk chalk we bought on clearance months ago. 🎈 🎈 later tonight, a family dinner out. These are the best days! #samuelscott #sidewalkchalk #family

One more in this most precious little dress, because how can I resist?! 💕 #lucymichele #ninemonths

I remember last year when the Easter attire started showing up in stores, I was great big pregnant. I admired all the dresses and mused that "this time next year" I'd be shopping for girly Easter dresses for my baby girl who, I could hardly believe, would be almost a year old on Easter. 🐥🐰 Turns out, it's just as much fun as I dreamed. So fun, in fact, that we had to try everything on today just to play dress up. So, here's a sneak peek at (one part of) Lu Chele's 2017 Easter wardrobe. Guys, she's so sweet and precious I can't believe I haven't eaten her up yet. 💕💕💕💕 #lucymichele #ninemonths #easterdress #easter #babysfirsteaster

My sunshine. My argumentative, stubborn, smart, independent, often aggravating, always beloved sunshine. ☀️ #samuelscott #bigbrother #youaremysunshine #sunshine

britneemichele (@britneemichele)

Sweetest little thing. She's getting so big! Just this morning, she let go of the couch and stood for a few seconds unsupported, then lowered herself down and sat! 😱 Sam walked pretty much exactly on his first birthday. I wonder when Lu will take those brave first steps. Honestly, I've been so overwhelmed with the daily hubbub of child-rearing that I've barely imagined her actually growing up. It's going to break my heart a teeny bit when she does take off! 😩😩 #lucymichele #babysister #ninemonths

Ahhh, Valentine's Day. I've always loved it. The colors, the mood, the excuse to eat chocolates, the opportunity to reflect on all of the people and things I love and imagine ways to love them even more extravagantly. What a blessing, amidst all the turmoil in the world today, and all the things that aren't going just right, to spend one day counting our blessings. 💕❤️💕❤️ I hope everyone enjoys this special day, and finds someone, be it romantic or not, who you can uplift with some extra love today. ☺️ I have one little sweetheart who is sleeping her first Valentine's Day away because she didn't sleep at all last night. 😜 #Valentinesday #happyvalentinesday #valentine #lucymichele #ninemonths #babysfirstvalentines 💝

Rainy, blissfully boring, productive Monday under out belts. Sometimes, Sam has to play someplace that's out of his bothersome baby sister's reach. Tonight, after she'd pulled the trailer off his tractor for the final time, he threw his hands up so exasperated, and said in his little two-year-old voice, "No Wucy!!! Has she done that THREE TIMES?!" 🤣🤣 #samuelscott #bigbrother #babysister #siblings #legacylearningacademy
