This boy is just like his mama! He smiles with his entire face! Let’s talk about JOY for a moment! It can be a noun: a feeling of great pleasure and happiness It can be a verb: rejoice Anytime I am around this sweet boy I get the greatest feeling of pleasure and happiness. Yes, there are moments where it’s difficult. Yes, there are times where I lose my patience. Yes, there are situations where I feel like bursting into tears because I have no idea why he is grunting and dang near crying. Then I remember the other part of joy and that’s to REJOICE! God sent this little boy into our lives for a reason. He knew that Dominic and I needed him during this season of our lives. We have grown so much stronger as a couple in our relationship because we have a reason to be the best we can be. Ramon Jr. deserves to see his mommy and daddy thriving. In times of change where things can feel overwhelming and exhausting we find ourselves praying and smiling at this sweet little boy! In each and every day there is a reason to be filled with joy! It may be obvious and right before your eyes or you may need to seek it out! But it’s there! Thank you God for the sweetest of blessings that you show me through this little boy! Thank you God for Dominic and the opportunity for us to grow through this season of life! #blessingsonblessings#purejoy#babyjoy#smileonbaby#thesweetestgift#smileaway#nogreaterlove#boymama#firsttimeboymom#firsttimemama#sweetestblessing

As Ina May Gaskin says, “There is no other organ quite like the uterus. If men had such an organ they would brag about it. So should we”. Our best gift is truly helping women receive the care they deserve while empowering them, but these uterus cookies are pretty fantastic! A thoughtful treat from one of our strong, birthing mommas today🤗 #thankYOU#cutieutie#uteruscookies#gentlebeginnings#midwifelife#thesweetestgift
“Gratitude is the open door for abundance.” ✨ . Tonight I’m thankful that I get to be a mama. . Even on hard days. . Even when I feel pulled in 1,000 directions. . Even when transition is t-o-u-g-h on their little hearts and minds. . Even when I don’t feel like I deserve their unconditional love. . . .
I can’t believe I haven’t shared this yet! My oldest friend drew this for Joel and myself as a wedding gift. I love it so much; it means so much to me! (I still have a box full of old birthday cards that she made me over the years 💕) I won’t pretend I didn’t shed a tear when we opened it ✨ Happy birthday @carla_mcrae I’m so proud of everything you have, and will, become. And I’m so happy to still call you my friend after all these long years. Love you xx #thesweetestgift#twentytwoyears
