This girl.
She's spunky and sassy. She loves to help cook and bake, take care of her baby brother, and tell everyone else what to do too. πŸ˜†
One minute she can be calm and cuddly and then next minute she is bouncing off the walls.
She fills our days with plenty of laughter and entertainment for sure.
Thankful I get to be a part of her life and that Trek has a big sis who can make him smile and would give him the world. πŸ’—

Our little Bug is finally poking out enough to see at almost 17 weeksπŸ€— daddy already loves to press on my tummy because he just wants to try feel you every night. (Which I literally cherish) but she gets a little attitude at him when he does because she doesn't have too much room yet! Our little bug makes me super sick some days still, but we already love you so much & cant wait until you get hereπŸ’•

Love our crazy family! Not only did I get a husband but two amazing kids!! #marriedup #wifelife #stepmom #foreverfuelleman PCπŸ“·: @jaysoobs

5 random things about our family:
1. We're blended! I think a lot of you know this but Mara and Wes are my step babies and I'm so thankful for them, love them so much and B is beyond obsessed with them!
2. They all sleep on the floor in our room πŸ˜‚ they go through phases but for the last 3 months no one likes sleeping in their room they all want to be by us. Slumber party 🍿
3. Everyone thinks Wes is the oldest but Mara is actually almost 2 years older. He's super tall for his age.
4. The kids recorded Alvin and the Chipmunks this weekend and have had it on repeat. I think they've seen it 22 times now. Secretly kind of like cause of all the singing 😜
5. I legit can not keep the house clean for more than 5 minutes when we have everyone home. The kids always help clean up (which they hate) but do you have tips to stay more organized??

(Repost from last nightπŸ˜‰) I believe in tiny messages from heaven. The ones you get from the people you love that God seemed to call home far too soon. Little signs that make your heart Lind and eyes water. The kind you find when you expect it the least, but need it the most. I am an open book, I lay my dirty laundry out for all to see, so it is no secret that the past few weeks have been extremely challenging and heartbreaking for me as far as mothering my daughter with Oppositional Defiant Disorder. I have cried more than I'd like to admit, I have doubted my motherhood more than ever and I have fallen to my knees begging God to give me just one ounce of faith that I am the right fit for mothering this little babe.Β Today my cries were not only heard, they were confirmed. I had planned on spending the afternoon picking up the house and folding laundry, but instead I felt pushed to work on my tiny office area. It has fallen to pieces this winter and the unorganized clutter has been driving me crazy. About an hour in I found a plain white binder. I had never seen it before and have no idea how it made its way into my office. When I opened it, the rings were full of empty, clear, paper covers. I carelessly flipped through the empty sleeves and about 3/4 of the way through I found a folded up piece of ivory paper. The edges were torn and the paper was crunchy, clearly warn and ripped from a sketchbook. I opened it up and there on the paper was the most beautiful sketch of a tree. Now some of you might be thinking, ok, so what's the big deal? A sketched tree? Really? But to me this most beautiful hand drawn tree brought me to my knees and pumped life back into my mother heart. At the bottom right corner of the tree was a name and date written in pen. Lisa Kefford 9-10-98. Lisa Kefford, the angel mama of this sweet babe who has led me to doubt my own motherhood calling. A tree, one of my most favorite things in life and a date from the year Sean and I graduated high school. I knew it wasn't coincidence. I knew it was my daughter's mama looking down on me from above saying "You were chosen to raise my baby girl and God makes no mistakes." (Continued in commentsπŸ‘‡πŸ»)

Ula & Lani balancing in their hammock on the beach in Hawaii 6 years ago. Look at them breathing in the air & taking in the moment. I learned so much from my two babies. I still feel them with me even though their furry little bodies are no longer here. 🐾🏝🌈 #pomeranian #soblessed #furbaby #furbabies #blendedfamily #love #family #ohanameansfamily #ohana #hanai #lovingbeyondblood #stepmom #stepfamily #parenting #lovingamanwithkids

when you want to scream bloody murder, but you can't because it ruins the spa vibe

You don't have to bloom where you're planted, but you definitely are shaped by those around you & the experiences you carry. I choose to be carried in the sun and carried on a pool float πŸ₯‚

What is there to say about this special little girl? This is the 4th birthday I've gotten to spend with her, and watching her grow has been such a blessing. She has the funniest personality. She's very particular in what she likes that's for sure! Ha Happy Birthday to the little girl who makes me fix her hair a million times if there is even one little hair out of place. πŸ˜‚ I love you so muchhh Payt baby. ❀️9️⃣ !! @grantryznar
