Can I get an “awwwww”?! 💕🌷 ok- first big update and announcement. Charly had her preop appt yesterday for cochlear implants. The date is set, although I am not announcing it, and I am experiencing SO many different emotions. I am just so excited for her but also nervous as heck because she’s my little babe! Our main goal now is to keep her healthy before the big day! In other news, if you have seen my stories over the last few days, then you know I got a new mirrorless camera and I am loving it!!! (@sony #a6000 if you’re curious. This was shot on the kit lens but I did get a 50mm 1.8. I posted some example shots in my stories). Andddd I also got my nursery wall decals but these are just taped up to preview and there are about three more sheets of gorgeous flowers but I can not be trusted to apply alone. I am going to have to wait for a certified adult to help me style them and place them. (They are from @rockymountaindecals and they let me do my own creative twist and I’ll just warn you that his nursery is going to be Ahhhh-mazing. #staytuned) #darlingcharly #charlyshearingjourney .

Good Lord you guys - motherhood is the most satisfying and purpose-giving job I have ever experienced but does it ever get easier?! Every single day I question something on the @peanut app - turning to other moms for support and advice. This week I tried (and failed) to tackle potty-training. I also transitioned Charly to the crib in her room (but I am still sleeping in there with her so technically is that a transition? 🤔). One is deaf, one has tantrums, but both are my world. Since I’ve been using the @peanut app - I’ve been able to connect with other like-minded mamas in my area who understand what I’m going through. The app is a place to meet, chat and share experiences with like-minded mamas. I’ve been posting questions about pretty much everything on my mama mind and all of the women on the app have been amazing! They have offered such supportive advice, without any judgment, and I’d really recommend the app to any women out there - we all need other mamas who get us, accept us and support us. I love it! #peanut #ad

So proud to be the mama of our deaf baby girl who is inspiring people all around the world! 🤟🏻 YOU GUYS ROCK! We are closing down #nationalASLday with a bang and I am so overwhelmed with the love in messages and posts spreading the word with the challenge I mentioned in my stories! Wow- I don’t even think you guys could fully understand the impact you can make. Our family, and more like ours, are so grateful! #darlingcharly #charlyshearingjourney Thank you @twolittleduckies for this adorable onesie! .

You guys- this weekend’s weather has been 🙌🏻💕☀️ and we got to bust out grandma’s handmade bonnet for Charly and our @lark_adventurewear for all the fun in the sun! And I swear one of these days we are going to get our ish together for a decent picture but Cammy is ON-THE-GO at all times and I’m not holding my breath for at least 18 years 🤣. Well at least she’s cool and cute in this dress- Lark uses a special bamboo-cotton fabric not found in any other clothes and they are so darn soft! #gifted #larkadventurewear #darlingcharly #sweetcammy #twolittlebluebirds .

Well this is officially the cutest thing I have ever seen in my life 💕 (and while it’s not #asl I appreciate any character who takes the time to use nonverbal communication. That will definitely make a special kiddos day!) I have been planning this special just Cammy and mama day for a while and when we left she looked at me and said “Best day ever!” 😭😭😭 #sweetcammy #neverchangecammy #dreamscometrue

Oh my goodness- nothing like a clean and dry diaper to get this little squish smiling for pictures! I am so excited to finally share something we have been working on with our friends at @pamperspure . Our little Charly girl has sensitive skin (if you can’t tell by her rosy cheeks in every picture) so we were THRILLED to hear that @pampers released Pure, a new more natural line of diapers and wipes. Same quality of protection, zero fragrance, more stylish prints, and wipes made with 99% water. Pampers knocked it out of the park with this one! http://spr.ly/PureChristy #pamperspurepartner #pamperspure #sponsored #darlingcharly #charlyshearingjourney .

Stop it. Right. Now! I love how sweet and rosy she is in the morning. But let’s talk about that lip. That lip has made me love MYSELF more. You see I used to get made fun of for my bottom lip being so pouty (middle school boys are cruel) and then this little human comes out with my exact bottom lip and it is the most precious and beautiful lip I have ever seen. I gave that to her- how could I ever look at my bottom lip the same? How can I not see it is as anything but beautiful. Same with freckles! I always tried to conceal mine and now I am seeing my oldest with the most gorgeous dusting showing up on her nose and cheeks and I want to kiss each one of them! I would cry if she tried to conceal them the way I do. Gosh dang if being a mother isn’t the most life-changing, eye-opening, humbling, and perspective-giving job in the planet than I don’t know what is! #thesegirlsmakemebetter #darlingcharly #charlyshearingjourney .

So, as I informed you guys last week, I made a promise to take better care of myself. More time moving, more time smiling, & more time nourishing my mind, my body, and my relationships. When I became a mom of two, I found myself skipping breakfast. @Kindsnacks Healthy Grains Bars have been a game changer in giving my body a quick boost of energy and wholesome nutrition on the go with these busy little girls! Plus they are made with 100% whole grains and taste great with my morning coffee. I keep two in my diaper bag and a box in my car just in case (and Cammy loves when I share my “bah” with her). Definitely recommend these to the mamas who reached out and said they were in the same boat as me! 🙌🏻 #RiseandKIND #ad #twolittlebluebirds #darlingcharly #sweetcammy #busymom #handsfullheartfull
