Happy two months, baby girl. You made me a mama, and I'm forever grateful.
I almost "called in sick" today.. just to spend time with her. (JK, I wouldn't do that!) I just wanna squeeze her wittle cheekies!!!
Here's to the men who aren't afraid to be fathers, even if you weren't show the best example. To the men who aren't afraid to encourage their wives, even if it means putting yourself last. Here's to the men that work hard, play hard, love hard, and win at everything. Here's to the men that have been dealt a bad hand or two, and still choose that it won't determine their future. Here's to you, men. You are the fathers and mentors our children need.
P.s. My husband's father is the best! He's an amazing father, and grandfather. #fathers#baby#giselleSophie#mapetitelouve#men

Here's what I've learned about myself since getting back into working out:
1. My muscles aren't what they used to be...and that's ok. They will get there eventually.
2. My form is a little off, because my muscles aren't where they used to be...and that's ok, because I won't stay that way.
3. My pelvic floor is not where it needs to be...and that's ok, because it won't stay that way.
4. I may not be where I want to be "strength wise", but that's ok because I will get there in time. Probably not my timing, but that's ok.
5. MY goal is to be stronger than I was before I was preggo... so here's to stepping into new challenges.
BE PATIENT WITH YOURSELF. BE KIND TO YOURSELF. BE MOTIVATED, NOT HINDERED. . #fitness#postpartum#postpartumbody
I've lived in NYC for close to 7 years, and the one thing I know for sure is that her people are STRONG.
If you want to meet some of the most creative, most resilient, most insanely motivated, most ridiculously dramatic, And wildly fashion-trending (anything goes fashion) people...look no further than NYC. She is beautiful, tragic, and can withstand many a storm. 16 years today, this city chose to stand taller. Even after it was knocked down hard. She is a work in progress, always. Thank you to those who sacrificed... we will always remember those loved and lost on this day. 9/11 #nypd#nyfd
Happy birthday, @jamesondakota !!! I had to use this photo, because it's so flipping cute.
You're one of the best, and we are so grateful for your friendship, encouragement, and fun in our lives! Thanks for being born, Dakota!

Be strong, in Jesus name
We just dropped our wolfie girl off at daycare for the first time.
1. YES, it was the hardest thing for me to walk away and leave her.
2. YES, I know everything is going to be ok.
3. Is it 5pm yet?
4. Do I really NEED to work? 🙄
5. YES, I cried on the train while my amazing husband comforted me.
This image has been etched in my heart tonight. This is my home state and close to my hometown. The loss, the continued rain, the end isn't in site for many still waiting to be rescued... and the sleepless days/nights for our rescue police officers and crew helping to find these displaced people. Jesus please stop this rain, and bring the sun to dry it up! 🏼 I grew up having to evacuate several times during hurricane season, but this is one of the worst. My family was supposed to come visit tomorrow but it's too flooded for them to fly out! #overIt#houston
She finally fell asleep today, and we Finally got her smile on camera. She's probably making a nice little diaper for us to change later.
I'll miss you, Granny. I'm so happy you're breathing heaven air and you are finally healed. I'll see you soon enough. Xx
We are in New Mexico visiting with family because My sweet granny is not well. We are spending whatever time we can that's left, with her. @jeremie_nyc and I wanted her to meet our Giselle, because she was a part of the crowd of prayers that went up for her. I'm convinced my granny saw Giselle years ago... long before I could have imagined her. My Granny has always been a prayer warrior for our family. A quiet and humble one. She's the kind of woman that I'm sure the demons in hell shake when she awakes every morning. She's a legacy I hope to carry on this side of heaven. Yesterday, we decided to take Giselle into her room to touch and hold her, as much as she can right now. You see, My Granny isn't fully herself right now... but she is holding on praying for all of us. For reasons we can't fully understand. Giselle was crying, and we were concerned that it would be too much to bring her in to see My Granny. As soon as we walked into her room, Giselle stopped crying and a peace fell over all of us. We reached out and grabbed our Granny's hand to touch Giselle, and we all felt God's presence so powerfully in that room. These are the moments in life that are the most difficult... the ones where God wants to be most present for us. He is so near to us, and he is so kind. My Granny is still praying... even In her frail state. She is still warring over her babies. This is so personal for us, but I pray this helps some of you experiencing an ache in your soul today. "Peace, peace... such wonderful peace. Flowing down, from the Father Above."
First time traveler... not under the best circumstances.., but this little wolfie girl did sooooo well. One prayer answered! Xx

Sometimes life gets crazy and you're juggling a million balls... you're struggling to keep your own head above water. Our father God is so faithful to never leave us. Especially during these moments. Grateful to have that promise, forever.
A good cuddle with a little princess also helps.
Gigi's 3rd week at church...way to go, girlfriend!

Everything has already been said on social media. I can't say anything here that will be any more impacting than this right here. And yet, it's not about sharing an impacting post. This man lived this message... This is all about DOING something about what's happening in our country. I'm not shocked anymore, I'm ashamed. Im ashamed of what we have allowed to happen for FAR too long. I won't put up with it when I see it... I definitely won't. I'm calling on Jesus more, and I'm placing my hope in Him to lead me to fight this battle in the way he would.
This morning, my husband and I decided to look through his old photos on his phone so he could delete some of them. (What happens when you become a parent and you have no more storage on your phone ). While looking through photos, we reminisced about our first trip as a married couple in Greece. We love to travel together and plan on continuing to with our children. It was the beginning of one of the greatest adventures I've ever taken. Ever. Marriage is the greatest joy and the greatest act of daily humility I've ever experienced. Ever. This man right here has continually shown me how to lay down my life and yet how to dream over and over. I realize that there is no man or woman that could ever take the place of the perfection Jesus takes in our lives, but I believe God gives us people that show us something pretty darn close to His heart. My love sees right into the very core of my heart... something that scares me, challenges me, and makes me fall in love with him over and over. I wish I could do a better job at describing it. He reminds me that God's not done with me, simply by picking up the pieces of the ruins that seem to find their way in his life here and there. Favor follows this man... just like it can for you and I. The difference between him and I is that he chooses to access it more than I would like to admit. God truly has the BEST for us. He really does. My husband is my hero in so many ways. Ha, I have been blessed with some time by myself this morning.. out of the house...and yet, The only thing I can think of is how grateful I am for this giant of a man. Sorry for the book... actually I might write a book on this subject one day. How important it is to find a PARTNER, not just a companion. #partnersChampion#companionsAreSelfish#loveOurTeam#teamCarlson
