Since there are many new people following along I thought it was time for an introduction. We are Chris, Amy(me) baby Emerson or Emmy and our dog Ozzie. We live in Southern California! Chris and I have been married for almost 7 years but we met more than 12 years ago. Chris loves baseball, the Cardinals are his team. We both love music but Chris can actually play almost every instrument. I spend most of my spare time hanging with my family, shopping(not much buying), eating/drinking and swimming are our favorites. My parents and 3 siblings all live within 10 minutes of us. Once we were married we decided to save money for a few years before having kids. This was important so that I would be able to stay home with our kids as long as possible. I was a 1st grade teacher before Emmy came along and Chris works for a home builder doing many jobs including working as a realtor. I miss my students but love being with Emmy everyday. When it came time to start a family, it didn’t come easily. After years of trying, many doctors, starting the adoption process, adding our rescue dog Ozzie to the family, countless prayers, acupuncture, chiropractors, our last embryo actually took. We are Catholic and many don’t approve of IVF so it took a lot of prayers and soul searching to start our family in this way. We found out 20 weeks into the pregnancy that our baby would be born with a little extra and then found out our baby is a girl. We did not take the news of her Down syndrome well. We cried more tears than I care to remember. I thought our lives were over and we would never be a “normal” family again. I worried about her happiness and quality of life too. Boy was I wrong. Emmy entered the world 6 weeks early and despite a few small medical challenges she has been rocking this thing called life. She spent 19 days in the NICU before coming home with us. She needed oxygen 24/7 for 9 months but that never slowed her or us down. She is the most joyful and hardworking person I know. Watching someone work so hard for the things we take for granted makes you a better and more appreciative person. This is our journey in raising the most incredible human. We truly are #theluckyfew

Shrimp and Quinoa bowls were a summer dinner staple for us in Northern California last year. The temps were triple digits up until the sun went down 😣 a light, fresh dinner was a MUST if you had any chance of cooling the house down in time for bed. Very minimal stove use, especially if you keep the quinoa in bulk on Sunday 👌 . . . #home #lifestyle #instahome #homemade #homechef #homemaker #interiordesign #myhome #designmylife #interiordecorating #coastalliving  #homedecorating #homedesign #homedeco #decorate #momlife #momswithcameras #mealprep #eatclean #healthy #organic #fitness #fresh #gainz

Einen tollen Sonntag zusammen 🤗☕ . Gestern habe ich auf dem Blog einen Beitrag über das "Weinen" und unsere persönlichen "Do's" und "Don'ts" gepostet gepostet (Link ihr wisst schon wo 😂⤴️) . 🤓 Heute möchte ich euch einpaar Anregungen geben, was man anstatt von "Ist schon gut" "Wird schon wieder" und "Wein doch nicht" dem weinenden Schatz sagen kann. . 💗 Viele von euch werden es eh schon intuitiv machen, aber für alle anderen: . ❤️ Es ist ganz normal traurig zu sein! . 🧡 Ich bin für dich da! . 💛 Ich verstehe dich, dass du traurig (wütend, enttäuscht bist) das wäre ich auch! . 💚 Ich helfe dir, wie ich kann! . 💙 Lass deine Emotionen (Wut, Trauer) raus! . 💜 Lass uns zusammen weinen! . ❤️ Ich bleibe hier und tröste dich! . 🧡 Ich sehe, du möchtest jetzt alleine sein, ich warte auf dich, komm bitte wenn du bereit bist (dabei gehe ich aber nicht aus der Sichtweite) . 💛 Es ist so schwer für dich, ich verstehe dich! . 💚 Es ist sehr ungerecht, ich würde auch weinen! . 💙 Ich bin da und höre zu! . Es sind natürlich wie immer keine Sätze zum auswendig lernen, sondern nur Anregungen 🤗. . Habt einen schönen Tag und bis bald 💓 ________ #bindungsorientiert #verbindung #mutterliebe #kleinkind #momlife #vertrauen #beziehung #mamasein #lebenmitkind

Łatwo ich kochać. Trudniej przetrwać z nimi weekend 🙈 ⠀ Takie chwile jak ta na zdjęciu, to zaledwie symboliczny 1% 😉 Reszta to płacz lub krzyk (najczęściej jedno i drugie) w wykonaniu Romka lub Irki (najczęściej obojga). Mam nadzieję, że w końcu się dotrą, bo póki co iskrzy na maksa! 😱 Ale dziś mam dobry sposób, aby spacyfikować to towarzystwo.

Guten Morgen, besonders an alle #leseratten! Ich habe bei @geliebt_und_durchgeknallt von einer Büchertausch-Aktion gelesen und da muss ich als bekennender #bücherjunkie natürlich mitmachen. Diese Aktion funktioniert wie folgt: Wenn ihr mitmachen wollt hinterlasst ihr mir ein 📖 in den Kommentaren und ihr bekommt als PN eine Adresse an die ihr ein Buch schickt. Es muss nicht neu sein, aber bitte in einem gutem Zustand. Im Gegenzug bekommt ihr auch eines, wenn viele mitmachen sogar mehrere, zugeschickt. Klingt doch super, oder? Also, wer hat auch Lust? #büchertausch #mitmachen #bücherwurm #bücherliebe #leseratte #lesestoff #bookaddict #bookstagram #booklover #bookworm #booksofig #blogger #familienblog #momblog #elternblogger #mom #mamablog #mamablogger #familiencommunity #momlife #momoftwo #momofboys #jungsmama #lebenmitkindern #instamamagang
