My #wcw goes to this beautiful momma to be @mollymaethomps We loved celebrating lil' #lylamaethompson with you and @mrmollystroud this weekend! Can't wait to spoil her sillyπŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸŽ€πŸŽπŸŽˆ

Lyla Mae Thompson you have my whole heart and I will love you forever! #lylamaethompson

Happy Birthday to this incredible friend and gem @mollymaethomps Your happiness and joy is infectious, for those that surround you only shine brighter because of your light! I'm so lucky to have you in my life! You are one in a million babes!! And speaking of babes, #lylamaethompson is one lucky girl to have a momma like you! Love you girly 😘😘😘

I have a love/hate relationship with technology. Right now, I'm deep in the hate phase. My phone randomly wiped everything. EVERYTHING. Treasured videos of Chris & I talking to Lyla before she was born, us going to the hospital, countless moments when she was just a freshie babe. All gone. I've been pretty devastated while also equal parts kicking myself & wishing so badly I could turn back the clock & just taken the time to back it all up. I put it off because life is busy & there's always one million things going on. Well I sure wish I put off whatever task I did instead that now in retrospect is so inconsequential.

I was in the love phase of technology. I love it because it has the ability to connect people. To bring people all over the world together making this planet seem so small. I love the community it creates. I love sharing things with y'all & feeling such a big bear hug back. I love seeing what everyone is up to & going through. With my phone not working, I missed that. But the flip side is how nice it felt to disconnect. Because with the interconnectedness also comes this pressure to document, to respond back within 10 seconds or else. This feeling of stress if you take too long to answer because everyone knows that we have our phones on us. Which has always been a hard one for me. It’s so important for me to try & be present. Taking time to read & respond takes you out of whatever you're doing. So it's a constant struggle & love/hate relationship.
.
My phone hasn't been working properly, so I know I said this before but I promise it's not me just not responding. I either never received it or got it when I wasn't able to text back & now it's gone & I can't go back to respond. I don't want anyone thinking I just didn’t want to respond - that makes my heart hurt! I *think* my phone is getting texts now, so if I haven't responded about something, no matter how long ago you texted, please reach out again!
.
Anyways, these ramblings are to say 1. Unplug & disconnect from time to time. It's necessary & feels good. 2. BACK UP YOUR PRECIOUS MEMORIES! You never know when they could be completely wiped & of course it would be at the worst possible time.

i promise you she crossed her legs like that on her own. // thanks to @myjoolz + @azionepr for a lovely afternoon! for every stroller sold, a tree is planted and grows as your babe grows. i love that! // #lylamaethompson πŸŒ±πŸŒ²πŸŒΏπŸŒ³πŸƒ

Teething is temporary. Teething is temporary. Teething is temporary. Teething is temporary. Teething is temporary. Teething is temporary. // Some days I just repeat this to myself over and over and over again. IT'S SO IMPORTANT. And so is this photo of Lyla blissing whilst SURROUNDED BY PUPPIES! // #lylamaethompson #teething #teethingistemporary #llyodhair

moms are superheroes. //
I meant to post yesterday & instead the day was filled w/ nursing & exploding diapers & missed naps & running from here to there & by the time we got home I collapsed & totally missed it. But I guess that's appropriate on Mother's Day.
I was super emotional yesterday. Feeling overwhelmed that I get to be her mom. And feeling for those that want to be moms but are struggling to conceive & those that have lost their moms & those that have endured the devastating, unimaginable loss of their own child. Just a whole barrel of emotions. Which I guess is also appropriate because if motherhood is one thing, it’s emotional (at least for me).
It was so surreal that this day included me. She made me a mom. She gave me my first glimpse into the sacrifices my mom’s been making since I was born. Mom, with you as an example, I have big shoes to fill. You are the definition of unconditional love. Thank you for giving us your best every day, for giving up your own wishes to fulfill ours, for showing us the power of kindness & love.
Motherhood is the most spectacular gift. Don't get me wrong, it's a whole lot of work. Like A LOT. But my Meme said something last night that summed it up perfectly. I was thanking her for everything that she does & she said "I got more joy out of it than y'all did!" And isn't that just the craziest, most beautiful thing - a gift that gives to everyone. Everyone feels like THEY are the recipients.Β 
Motherhood is filled with so many ups & downs, our bodies are on the biggest rollercoaster (physically & emotionally). And I've heard we never get off. So cheers to all the mamas out there! The ones who've been there, done that; the ones who are celebrating their very first mother's day; the ones who's hearts hurt as they mourn or long for children. You are ALL superwomen. And I feel lucky, blessed & so humbled & honored to be among you.Β 
I loved reading all the Mother's Day posts because they were so full of love & highlight the world’s true superheroes. A big bear hug & fist pump to all the moms out there who put on their invisible capes every day & go around saving the world one snuggle, one carpool, one life lesson at a time.

this crew is missing two of my kids and my momma but it was still such a special mother's day getting to celebrate my daughter @mollymaethomps being a momma too!!! it's the best to get to watch her do such an amazing job with lyla babe!! thanks @cmstroud @mollymaethomps @mrmollystroud @lanablakely #lylamaethompson for all the love today and every day!!! happy mother's day to all of you momma's!!!

Thank you for being the best mom to Lyla. We love you so much! #lylamaethompson

celebrating cinco de mayo + my auntie's birthday by girl talking + twinning // @ashleylindahall #lylamaethompson

the birthday babe!!!!! // happy surprise celebration you little thirty year old! love you more than I could put into words and beyond thankful to have you in my life. From meeting you at Pepperdine, to living together in London, to your help with Chris's proposal in France, to doing life together as newlyweds, to sister honeymooning together in Mexico. All things are better with Jenna!! // LOVE YOU @j.blackmon!! // #lylamaethompson #lylarippedoffherbow #disclaimer #itsnotaboutlylaitsaboutjenna #butineededyalltoknow

hiiiii eight months πŸ‘‹ // this little eight month old is such a trooper. yesterday was her eight month birthday and her 21st flight. she loves being around people and taking in all the sights and sounds. sometimes she makes you work for a smile or a laugh, but other times she's just the giggliest, smiliest little nugget. she LOVES saying DaDa and couldn't care less about trying to say Mama. she fills our hearts up with more love and joy than I knew existed in the world and makes each day just the best (and most exhausting)! // WE LOVE YOU LITTLE EIGHT MONTH BABY BOO!! // @mrmollystroud #lylamaethompson

Easter was extra special this year! // It's always so wonderful to celebrate this glorious day with family + friends and it felt even more beautiful and miraculous celebrating Easter now that we are parents. Lyla being the cutest little bun was pretty awesome too! // πŸ™Œβœ¨πŸ°πŸŒˆπŸ£πŸ’› // #lylamaethompson
