Trying to keep up with all the kids needs has not been an easy job. They are all at different stages in their life and require attention in different ways. My little unicorn has been dying for attention just her and I, she never really says it but I can feel her tugging at me in different ways. She’s been the baby for 7 years so it’s taking time for her to adjust. So I woke up this morning and surprised her to a trip to Disneyland just her and I. ❤️ #momlifebelike
A week behind but Seven is 2 months old, I can’t say this enough but God has really blessed me with an angel baby. 👼🏻She loves her sleep, she brings so much light to our household when she is up! Crossing my fingers 🤞🏼that she won’t switch over night. Not going to lie, it’s still a transition but in the best way possible, adjusting to this new life of craziness but we love her so much! 💛 #sevenizabella#momlifeisthebestlife
I didn’t know how 4 kids would look, nor did I know what it would look like having a newborn, I was scared that it would take away time from my older kids and thought that I would have to give up everything that I loved to do. With this baby, I’ve learned that you don’t have to stop your life If you don’t want to, you can still do the things you love and hang with the people you love, it’s just an adjustment you have to get used to. Maybe it looks like carrying a baby in a Moby wrap while applying vinyl on the staircase or maybe it looks like getting a certain task done in an hour opposed to the 10mins it used to take you. lol whatever it is as long as you are loving your life and having fun doing it, that’s all that matters. Seven is 7 weeks today and we can’t imagine life without her. 🖤 #luckynumber7#sevenizabella#kaserealestate
I love you not only today but every day for the last 15 years.... and SOOO many more years to come. 😍❤️ Thank you for going above and beyond every single day for OUR FAMILY! You are the hardest working man I know, you shine light on everyone you cross paths with & truly want everyone to live the best life they possibly can. I love you for ALL of this. HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! @kevion ❤️😘 📸: @whitneydarling

Last October I made this cute little Fairytale Unicorn cake for my daughters birthday. simple & easy, anyone can do it. ✨& I just wrote all about how I did it on the blog. Link in my profile. 🦄💞✨ #diymom#diycake#unicorncake#unicornparty
Out getting some sunshine ☀️ with my girls ( & daddy too 📸) while Kai Kai has a play date . 😍
btw... TIP: for mommies with newborns. Keep your baby completely covered. I’m seriously loving that this @nuna_usa has a dream shade, & on top of it I cover it again with a @milksnob cover b/c you can never keep your baby safe enough from germs 👾. Lol
You are only 9 days old but I can’t imagine life without you! ❤️
People keep asking how I’m doing & the answer is I’m good! Believe it or not, I’m getting a little more sleep than I did at the end of my pregnancy. My whole 3rd trimester, I could not sleep, could not get comfortable so I would be up for hours.
God blessed me with an angel baby, that LOVES her sleeps much as her sister does. She is seriously perfect, I could not get her up last night for her feedings. 🙏🏼❤️
I do notice that she also sleeps more when her arms are tucked in a blanket. I normally use a zipper one at night & she is loves this one during the day when she is with mama. This pouch is from @milksnob.
Bringing Baby Seven Home ❤️
For some reason I was the most nervous with this birth, maybe because I knew what was to come or maybe b/c Facebook somehow knew I was pregnant & flooded my page with scary birth story articles. (This was it for real, I literally had to tell myself I wasn’t going to die 😏 ) everyday I prayed that my birth would be easy, calm, & quick & God did just that. 🙏🏼
Sunday at 7am I woke up having contractions every 30min that lasted all day, then came 9pm & they were every 5min so @kevion & I decided to go in. I for sure thought I was further along but when I got there I was about 3cm. 🤔
Shout out to all you mamas who give birth with NO epidural. B/c at 4-5cm I couldn’t take it. 😂 I tried to go further but nope, I told them to hit me with that epidural. ( this was actually the worst pain through out the entire process) the anesthesiologists could not find the right spot & poked me with that giant needle at least 4 times! Instead of taking 5 min to do this it took a good 30min 🙄 moving on...
I was comfortable but I did not sleep after that, I sat & stared at her heartbeat on that monitor ALL night. My nurse was the nicest nurse I have ever had, so calming and made me feel assured that everything was going to go perfectly. ❤️
6am I am about 9cm, 6:40am she says you are at a 10, let me get the doctor & we can start pushing! 😳 literally woke keven up, he runs to the bathroom to splash water on his face, comes out, 2 pushes and our Angel was born. 🙏🏼
The next 24 hours was just for kev & I to bond with our new born baby. We told everyone they could come visit when we got home. I think these 1st 24 hours are so important to just be with your baby. We did this with Azella and it just felt so perfect. ❤️
So overwhelmed with gratitude right now, how everything came in perfect timing from our @nuna_usa coming just 2 days before & her nursery being done right on time. & she decides she wants to be born on the 7th. What!!!❤️
Thank you @knowpassion for always capturing are most important memories.
Thank you for all your love/comments/texts. We ❤️ you!
Welcome to the world ❤️
Seven Izabella Stirdivant
Decided to make her debut on the 7th of January, weighing 7lbs 5oz, 19.75 inches long, & born at 6:49am. ❤️
Seven ❤️ The number of spiritual perfection, & the number which is stamped on every work of God.
I love you so much already, I can’t wait for you to meet your brothers & sister. 🦄
