They Grow Up So Fast

Daniel-Wellington-Watch-Review-Baby-MomI’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “they grow up so fast” a billion times. I, myself, have said it repeatedly since we had our first born. But it wasn’t until recently that this statement really hit home.

While looking over a roll of photos from a recent trip to the happiest place on Earth, Disneyland; I stopped everything I was doing and stared at this photo for a good fifteen minutes. In complete disbelief, I began to question why our little kindergartner looked so grown up here. Isn’t it interesting that as parents we see our kids daily yet we can’t grasp just how fast they’re really growing physically?Kids-black-halloween-sweater-ghost-taty-kids

According to KidsHealth.org, children grow the fastest during their first year.  “After age 1, a baby’s growth in length slows considerably, and by 2 years, growth in height usually continues at a fairly steady rate of approximately 2½ inches (6 centimeters) per year until adolescence. Weeks or months of slightly slower growth alternate with mini “growth spurts.” And interestingly enough, “Kids actually tend to grow a bit faster in the spring than during other times of the year!” So I guess Mia had that growth spurt this past Spring.

I wish I could keep both of our little ones little forever. Perhaps we could somehow invent a way to just freeze time? In the meantime, we’ll just be trying our best to create as many memories with our girls as they grow up.             

And speaking of time, this Daniel Wellington watch will not be coming off of my hand anytime soon. It’s now one of my favorite timeless wardrobe pieces. This classic style is part of Daniel Wellington’s Sheffield Collection.Daniel-Wellington-Watch-Disneyland-Walt Disney-Mickey Mouse-castle

After 7yrs of owning our home, saving up and doing some research this past year, we’re finally starting our kitchen renovation this week!! To say I’m excited and stressed is an understatement. Excited to see the end result but stressed about the mess and being kitchen-less with kids. 🙈😆 For those who have done it, any tips? For those who haven’t, what would you change in your kitchen if you could? 📸 @lin_marty .

  • This little nugget is almost 7 and already started 2nd grade this week. Someone pass me a box of tissues. When did she get so big? 😢

This year, she put together her own outfits with @ChildrensPlace. I'm loving that she added a touch of her favorite things - animals and sequins. 😊 Swipe to see! Even her awesome rose gold boots have flip sequins on them. Anyone else have kids that are obsessed with flip sequins?

  • Mia picked out this big girl outfit for 2nd grade. And after snapping these pics I came to the realization that my baby girl is not so little anymore. It's like she grew over summer. 
She's obsessed with this @ChildrensPlace outfit. Picked everything out from head (cat ears) to toe (flip sequins rose gold boots). 😍🙌🏼 The Children's Place is going back to school with a positive, new attitude - to #AlwaysBU ✌️ They're encouraging kids to always be themselves, to embrace their individuality, and stay true to themselves as they walk through the halls this year.

Don’t get it twisted. We’re an imperfect family. We have our fair share of tantrums, and disagreements but we also love each other hard, lift each other up, celebrate our successes and push each other forward when we fail. For that, never taking US for granted. .
