8 months old (last week) and what a month it’s been! Trips to Fire Island, NJ and MA. ⛴ Lots of time with family, soaking up the summer! ☀️ Noa’s love of food continues to grow and you don’t want to mess with her when she is hangry! 🍠🥝🍌🍓🥑🥦🥕🥯 Her new favorite is Bamba peanut puff snacks. 🥜 It’s been a month of sharing a room with big sister and sleeping in her own crib. 😴 Noa loves to go from sitting up to lying on her belly and reaching or grabbing for everything in sight. Her signature party trick is smiling and giving a big belly laugh whenever someone looks at her! 😆 Blowing raspberries and splashing in the water are close seconds. 💦 Excited for what the new month has in store! #12MonthsOfNoaElla
👉🏼Here we see a rare sighting of a mother, out in the wild, without her cubs.👦🏻🧒🏼
These creatures often wear top knots and can survive on coffee, alone, for 18 years. They require little to no sleep.
They are more commonly found in their natural habitat known as @target.
This species in particular, can be found #doingitforthegram in front of colorful murals or other instagram worthy walls. 🤳🏼
🚫Warning do not approach, talk or make eye contact, until the mother has had her morning coffee.
Happy Wednesday, friends! 😆

I’ve taken a total of 1,573,876 pictures of her - this is my fav. No fancy filters or crazy photoshop edits.. just my girl. I scroll through these pictures on Instagram and sometimes wonder what happened to just a picture being itself.
Golden hour .. it all glows differently when you're here 🌻
The only things left in the garden are the summer loving things sunflowers, zinnias, marigolds, tomatoes, peppers, passion fruit, okra, most of the herbs have flowered and I'm not mad one bit. Some years I'm so motivated to get the garden planted and maybe because they've been on much smaller scales (we went from 40 to 140 square feet of growing space) but I'm in no rush lately to get anything going for fall (besides a few tomato suckers I rooted) I've just been sitting back and letting nature do its thing... enjoying the magic that is still so vibrant and alive. Friends I pray you find a little bit of magic in your day no matter where your feet take you today!! 💖 #glitterinthegarden

This girl is made out of sunshine 🌞 I love getting to know her! It is amazing how much of their personality you can already tell at such a young age. Especially comparing her to Charlie, I can see clearly how much of himself he was showing me at just a few weeks old. Now with her, I’m trying to pick up on any clue she will give me about the amazing little human she is. Sweet natured, go-with-the-flow, super social....I can already tell, if I play my cards right, we’ll be besties for life 👯♀️🥰
Under the Sea 🐠🐳🦀🧜♀️🌊 One of my favourite school holiday activities 💙 So fun seeing how excited the kids get about all the sea creatures and a bonus that the @freedomfairies were there too 🧚♀️

“He’s got the whole 🌎 in his hands”
Isn’t it so incredible that the God who holds our entire universe in his hands so intricately designed these tiny baby hands. Not only to be cute baby hands but to leave a finger print of his Creator everywhere he goes.
The way these hands squeeze my cheeks when he’s so focused on kissing me with one of those classic open mouth baby kisses.
The way these hands squish bananas because he can’t contain how excited he is about his bananas.
The way his hands used to clap with fists but now clap with open hands and every time he claps he claps again because he’s so excited he clapped.
What we know about hands is simple, they can be a weapon for destruction, or they can be catalysts to bring healing.
Hands can help others, or hurt others.
What we see are just tiny hands, but the truth is there is nothing small or insignificant about these hands. They are full of purpose, power, and potential.
The moments they touch my face and stare at me in adoration when I have no makeup on and I’m not feeling my best self. The way he plays with my fingers and holds my hand as if he knows it’s my favorite thing. When he plays on daddy’s piano with such passion and joy. And yes, even squishing bananas and crunching seaweed chips. These moments he is already using those hands to bring love, and spark joy. These moments are healing for us. They are full of potential and I want to be thankful for them every day.
The Wolds will do our best to encourage these hands to move, love, heal, touch, and give. Our prayer is that “EVERYTHING he sets his hands to will prosper.” I mean, if the Creator of the universe handmade these hands, then you know there’s a lot more to them than meets the eyes.

Happy Tuesday friends! How sweet is my little babe!? ☺️ I hope you’re all having a wonderful week; ours is crazy over here! My dad flies in this afternoon & is staying with us so I’ve been busy perfecting my home, getting the guest room all ready, and loving on my babies. Mason had his last swim lesson of the summer yesterday & he had a blast! 🐠 Check our my stories today for some highlights 😉 I’ve been continuing to declutter & get RID of things- bedding, clothes, etc...feels SO good to let things go & move on. I’ve been thinking about posting things here more that I’m selling, but I don’t have a million followers yet, so not sure anyone would see it? 🥴 If you’ve got thoughts I’d love to hear them! ...Also; as you know my grandma passed away & we’ve got all of the funeral stuff coming up this weekend & im so dreading it you guys! Death freaks me out, makes my anxiety sky rocket, just pray for me please! It’s crazy to me how life just keeps moving on; even when someone you care so deeply for passes, it’s like the universe is like “alright keep things moving, let’s go...” and my heart is still crushed 😩 Weird how everyone doesn’t just stop what they’re doing and cry with me...I do have peace though knowing she’s in heaven with Jesus & I have faith that I’ll see her again one day, but that still doesn’t make loosing her any less ❤️ ..if you’re in the midst of grief know that I’m praying for you & God is still so good. His plan is much bigger than ours & that is something to be truly thankful for. 🙌🏽💙

Hello 16 weeks! 👋🏼
Me: “Ella Jane it’s selfie time with Mia.”
Ella: quickly flashes mom the cutest smile then proceeds to eat Mia’s face off (not pictured)
What a ham! Stay tuned for Ella Jane’s 4-month developmental update next week. In the meantime, I’ll be over here wondering how in the world my baby girl got so big. 😫 | doll: @cuddleandkind | #ellajaneandmia
Les nuits sont plus difficiles pour nous depuis quelques jours. 😴 Maïka s'est réveillée aux heures pour boire la nuit dernière et elle avait beaucoup de mal à se rendormir entre les boires. J'imagine que c'est sa poussée de croissance de 3 semaines et que ça va rentrer dans l'ordre très bientôt. Pour l'instant, je vis "de nuit" comme elle et je suis en train de passer au travers de la première saison de Jane the Virgin sur Netflix pendant nos nuits éveillées. 🙈

I’m having a flash forward to their teenage years.
What a cool way to learn about honey bees...seeing them! I grew up with my dad harvesting honey from our hive, dressed in the big sting proof suit and gloves, which is so amazing now that I look back on that! .
Lately we are able to get out and go places with much less effort now that Desmond can walk and the other two are quite independent, can buckle themselves in, carry things, etc. it’s so nice! One reason Im excited about homeschooling kindergarten is that I don’t feel the rush of summer ending. I don’t feel panicky about saying goodbye to my oldest during the days, not yet at least. I know with that can come the stifling feeling of needing a break and fear of being inadequate, but it still feels like from here on out I’m getting extra time with him I hadn’t planned on. And just like any mom my kids drive me crazy sometimes, but I’m embracing the idea that we are going down a little different path and I like it. What are you hoping to get to do the last month of summer? Are you excited for school to start or dreading it or both? #summerwithkids#homeschooling
How is it already Wednesday and already half way through the year? Is it just me or do you also feel like time is going far too quickly? Also I’m turning 30 at the end of the month 😮I still feel 18 though 💃🏻

A little look into our master bathroom 😍 We have two of these @homedynamix Spa Retreat Border bath mats and we love them! The kids are ALWAYS in our room and bathroom when I’m getting ready in the morning and even Reid said “oh mama these are SO nice! Look! You can see my foot print!” Because they are that cozy 😍 Link in stories or head to my “Home Dynamix” highlight and check out our favorite rugs and mats!
Words are so powerful, and many people struggle to know WHAT to say in any given situation. I really relate to this and have felt it myself. ⠀
What I found worked well for me was to learn specific ways of saying things so that I knew that I was confidently conveying my message, whilst feeling empowered and calm. This helped me feel prepared for the situation. 😊⠀
And this is exactly what I want for you when you are dealing with your child. Beacuse of this I created an ebook called A Pocket of Calm and Communication.⠀
Having short and simple phrases prepared gives you something to practice saying to your child so that you are not speaking from a place of fear. Whenever we get angry, we are simply saying that we are out of control and don’t know how to act or what to say. Anger is simply fear. ⠀
The phrases in my e book will help you feel more empowered as a parent, as you keep adding to your toolbox of communication skills. 💭👌🏻⠀

We live in a society that is constantly saying: 🚗💨 Go, go, go! More, more! Produce and create as much as possible!
But is that really beneficial or sustainable? Or are we just getting more and more overcommitted and overwhelmed?
In this episode of #GoingBeyondPodcast 🎧 we interview entrepreneur, author, speaker and mother ⭐️ @KateNorthrup!
Kate’s new book #DoLess : A Revolutionary Approach to Time and Energy Management for Busy Moms is exactly what the title says it is! 📚 This radical and profoundly honest book dives into connecting to what actually matters and what our bodies really want.
Kate explains why sleep is her favorite spiritual practice and how its rejuvenation is essential. 💤 She takes us back to the earth, the stars and the moon, diving into the natural cycles, helping us understand the true feminine rhythm. 🌙 As women we go through powerful physical transitions- from periods, to pregnancy to motherhood.
It’s essential that we LISTEN to what’s going on and allow things to JUST BE and remember everything will get done.
Using her favorite quote: "Nature never rushes, yet everything gets done” she guides us through her research and life-changing principles.
⭐️ Tune in now on iTunes / Spotify to start a life of doing less but having more!

It took entirely too long to actually hang wall decor after we moved.. tell me I’m not alone 😴
But I couldn’t be more please with how my living room is turning out ❤️
"This house only raises strong girls"
In our home this means we are raising our daughters to be courageous. To stand true to their faith and values when others try to sway them. It means we are raising girls who aren't afraid to stand apart of the crowd. Who know who they are and are proud of it. We are raising strong girls who love themselves, flaws and all. Who realizes that it's what is on the inside that matters most of all, and that self love brings forward confidence and strength. We are raising strong daughters who are willing to fight for what they believe in, and to help others when they are in need. Strong girls who are powerful, kind, compassionate, helping, brave, and loyal. Who have integrity, empathy, humility, and who live without fear. Above all we are raising strong girls who know where their true strength comes from, and why they are capable of anything and everything. "Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous hand." - Isaiah 41:10 This is what strong means to us. Not someone who never cries, never needs help, or never fails. Sometimes strong is owning up with an apology. Sometimes strong is letting the tears fall. Sometimes strong is failing. Sometimes strong is being broken, but getting up again against all odds. Strong is beautiful, and in this house we are raising strong daughters.

Enlighten me Wednesday ✨
Today is the day where we post questions from our community of Mums for us all to answer. And who knows, we might learn something too! .
Tonight’s question is about supplements...
”I’m very hit and miss with taking vitamins and supplements. When I do, I think I feel better but I never stick it out long enough. Does anyone have advice on what are the best to take, best brands and how do I remember to take them?!!”
Sempre fico muito atenta ao que leio, pois de passagens simples posso extrair grandes reflexões. Procurarei compartilhar coisas que me tocam na sessão #dolivropravida do #IGpontomaterno . E quando você lê este trecho do livro #alicenopaisdasmaravilhas , algo mexe com você? Para mim retrata como eu era antes de “pensar” a maternidade. Antes só a vivia...identifico-me totalmente com a Alice, perdida, querendo acertar o caminho, mas sem saber para onde ir. Hoje, já tenho uma maior clareza de onde quero chegar: uma maternidade mais parceira e leve. O caminho? Não acho que exista um, o padrão, a fórmula. Para cada família creio que há um jeitinho especial de criar os filhos. Só sei que não basta apenas a boa intenção dos pais...não sei quando se deu “meu encontro com o coelho”...mas certamente esse despertar foi a melhor coisa que me aconteceu na vida.
I could stare at those baby blues all day. Love you sweet girl 💕

Reminiscing of warmer days!! I love so many things about winter. However dealing with the winter bugs is bit tough when caring for sick kids, juggling work, all when not well.
However as my dad says....we are nearly at the shortest day!!! Hope your doing ok whatever weather your facing!

This piano toy also features magic touch technology - there are no buttons or keys. So, next time you’re at @target - go find the @babyeinstein Magic Touch Piano and #ignitecuriosity !

WOW. I don’t even have the words to describe the amount of love I feel from yesterday’s post. THANK YOU. Thank you for trusting me, and sharing your stories with me. I feel so grateful to have this platform to connect with you mamas, and I hope you all know I’m here for you. Whatever you need, anytime. I never started this Instagram journey to make money, but rather to connect with other mamas and talk about what I love- MOTHERHOOD. It’s a hard journey, but we can do this together! Thank you for following me, it means the world. I can’t say thank you enough. ❤️❤️

This was Aus and I on our first date back in September of 2013 (hello fuzzy iPhone 4 quality 😂). I was the starry eyed small town girl who had just moved to the big city...literally the day before! And you were the mature older (lol 19yo) working guy who took me to listen to jazz at the top of the space needle. You told me that night that you were going to marry me and we were inseparable ever since. We’ve been through it all. Literally. And yet we always come out of it more in love. I saw a story today about a couple who had been together since they were 16 & 22 and went to heaven on the same day. I saw so much of you and me in that story. Two teens in an everlasting love story. I’ve always told Austin that this is how our story will go. We’ll go to heaven on the same day. He’ll be 100 and I’ll be 99 and we’ll get 81 years of loving each other. My first and only love. I love you Aus. ❤️
This girl of mine... growing bigger, wiser, sweeter and more beautiful every day.
I love having her home with us in the holidays, she makes us feel whole 🌻

Welcome to the world Daisy Riddell born on the 15th July at 3am, 6lb7.
Wearing her little going home outfit knitted by my nanny and worn by myself and my two sisters when we were babies.
All of us are doing well and enjoying our time together. Currently getting zero hours sleep and labour was much harder than I ever thought it would be, but it's all been worth it! ❤️
