She wants to do everything her brothers do, including walking barefoot in the creek. I think she's my hardest kid to keep up with because she's following her brothers ALL the time. Slow down, little lady 🙈 #thirdborn#babyproblems
I just wanted to write a little post to say thank you for all the support. This journey has been really emotional and difficult for me but I am finally in a place where I feel like I can be really confident about my message. I am learning and growing every day and feel so lucky to be able to trial all the things that I am reading with my own family. I have taken a lot of certifications, and a lot of courses to try to put together this very complex world of baby sleep. I started as a very traditional ‘sleep consultant’ using everything that I learned in ‘sleep school’ and not questioning any of it. My path has led me to a beautiful place where I can confidently say that I have a very good understanding of sleep, and that not sleeping has nothing to do with sleep at all. Waking up every two hours is not a behavioural issue, that needs a behavioural intervention, it is a RELATIONSHIP issue (yes, sometimes there are medical reasons as well and feeding related challenges). Moving forward, my focus will not be on behaviour, it will be on improving the relationship (because nothing works outside of that). After over 50 hours of attachment education, I finally feel like I am really understanding baby sleep and how that relates to the relationship (another 50 hours for part 2 coming up as well). We have to remember that if the behaviour is more important that the relationship, and we are willing to damage the relationship to fix the behaviour, we are headed down a dangerous path. If I can ask one thing of all my followers... I know you are here for sleep advice BUT if you can spend two weeks ignoring sleep and instead focusing on your relationship with your child, let’s see what happens. Offer more proximity than what is asked for, when you do not feel the will to connect - give yourself a time out or a night off, reflect on how your relationship with your own parents is impacting you, don’t push your child’s face into separation but instead focus on the next connection, and spend more time connecting than correcting your children. Give it a try and comment below with what happens when you stop focusing on sleep and start focusing on connection.
Years ago I had the pleasure of tasting homemade elderflower cordial in Denmark at the home of the amazing @marinapagh.dk The cordial was incredibly refreshing, floral and citrusy, it was addictive and I’m afraid I nearly drank their whole bottle on my own! Over half a decade later, after trying countless disappointing store-bought elderflower syrups and searching far and wide for the flowers I finally came across a huge tree dense with blossoms only a few doors down from the apartment. Needless to say, I’m over the moon! A few days from now I’ll have my own syrup of summery bliss, packed into bottles and ready to provide that heady taste of summer year long, I can barely wait!
I've been anxiously waiting for sunny weather so I can wear my cool ass shades from @hashtag.sunglasses 😍😍 I adore them! ¥Let's get shady for the summer use code "Nakita14" to get 10% off and free express shipping http://www.hastag-sunglasses.com/

12p: Was originally looking for @jaytaj's "This Is Home To Us" but stumbled on this powerful track instead. Inserting my favourite verse. Listen to "Stumbling" on Spotify too! #repeatonfull
Now can you hear that?
Powerful, drownin' in emotional oceans that's prob'ly shallow
Can you feel that?
The pain of a million bullets
I sing a sad song and forget I've ever been through it.
Can you see that?
Be that I be the one who can be that
One my heart must said I should be if I wish to see that
But the pain is too intense to believe in whatever be past
Suicidal is do or die if I choose to react
Is it worth it?
Or am I thinkin' too much
See, that's my problem
How do I live, I keep thinking too much
And that's exactly what I get 'cuz I keep thinking you lost
How could you love someone like me that isn't thinkin' enough?
Stop it Jay
This monster I become is too familiar
So familiar that you've never seen or heard of it
You feel me?
Every chance I get to be honest
I regret telling the truth because the truth is forgotten
Don't think about it
Ainda bem que a gente não perde nunca essa mania de acreditar. Que amanhã vai ser melhor. Que o próximo amor virá para ficar. Que essa aflição um dia vai passar. Que a distância não pode nos impedir de sonhar. Que o nosso coração errante ainda toma jeito. No fundo a gente acaba acreditando. Por algo ou por alguém. É o que costumamos chamar de fé. Essa certeza de que o pior ficou para trás. Essa confiança de que existe alguém lá em cima observando nossa luta e preparando um belo prêmio. Essa crença de que a vida vai dar certo. E vai mesmo. Porque a mente atrai o clamor da alma. Porque quando a gente acredita, de verdade, as coisas acontecem. Porque o coração é uma fênix que não se cansa de renascer. E o amor não é uma invenção humana. E o bem há de prevalecer. A escuridão da madrugada assusta a tristeza. E amanhã o Sol estará mais uma vez no céu a brilhar. É a vida lhe dizendo na forma de luzes e cores que mais uma chance lhe foi dada. Enxugue o rosto, abra o armário e escolha o seu melhor sorriso. Confie em mim. Não é uma vida ruim. Foi só um dia difícil. E já passou.

One of my most popular pins on Pinterest is the Lilac Press logos that I had created a while back.
It’s funny to me to know that the pins that people are most resonating with are the projects that I do for fun to let off some creative steam! Creative freedom is a beautiful thing people 🙌🏻😊
But for real, I almost want to develop this concept out a bit further because I’m envisioning this beauty in letterpress and the LP monogram in a wax seal 😍
