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
It’s already going by way too fast 😭, I can’t believe it’s been a month since I became your mommy.
I love you so much

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. 🦄
2018 was the year of growth. ❤️
We purchased our dream home not really knowing exactly how it was going to happen.
🛠 renovated our new home and 2 investment properties all at the same time. (Something I’ve always wanted to do)
🖍 in the midst of everything I decided to homeschool Azella taught her to read 🤗 (very proud of this). Thought it would be good since at the time we were thinking she was our last one. 😂 Come May we are pregnant with another baby girl! 🦄
Nesting kicked in and spent majority of this pregnancy organizing our house 😂 so now we get to start 2019 80% organized 😂
KASE & Project Mindset making tons of noise this year. 💯
Went to a woman’s retreat with our church & got to know such a great community of women. ❤️ @brancheshb
The loss of Grandpa Stirdivant was devastating to say the least but we got to spend a lot of quality time with him in 2018. ❤️
Spent a lot of time with family & hosting endless family events in our dream home. I couldn’t be happier with how 2018 ended.
We are so ready for you 2019 & baby Seven. •
Wishing you all a Happy New Year! ✨
Hope you all had the best Christmas, filled with LOVE. ❤️•
Here is a picture of my Christmas Tree 🌲 b/c apparently I didn’t get any good photos with my fam bam with normal clothes on. 🤷🏻♀️😂 too busy hosting both Christmas Eve & Christmas Day. But we had the best time with family. ❤️#christmastree2018#christmas2018
6 year wedding anniversary & I couldn’t be happier with you! ❤️ We say 15 years together because our kids are old enough to do the math & not in the mood to explain. 😂 🤷🏻♀️ 7 years ago you proposed with the little money we had. (Read screen shot) , 6 years ago your grandpa married us at the Stirdivant cabin that has been in your family for almost 100 years & 1 year ago you asked me to marry you again. 😍
I love you to the moon & back. So excited for what 2019 has to come. Happy anniversary my love. @kevion 🎥: @knowpassion
Running through these last 3 weeks like... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀I wasn’t sure how I was going to like pregnancy this time around but I can honestly say, I enjoyed it. ❤️ I’m going to miss this belly, 3 weeks left.
If you didn’t know I was contracting on Saturday went to the ER and they wanted to do everything to keep baby Seven in my belly. Thankfully contractions stopped, saw my main Doc yesterday & she said she thinks I’m going to have the baby early, & at this point she isn’t going to do anything to stop my contractions b/c the baby is already measuring at 37.5 weeks. 😳 reality check to get everything together. Thankfully my @nuna_usa is coming very soon so I have a car seat to bring her home in & hopefully we could get her nursery together this week. ❤️ we are so ready to meet you! #pregnantbelly#mommylifestyle#momblogger
