Where did my baby go?! I'm so in love with this little rascal. #wildercobalt Today Wilder and I made a quick stop by my (our) happy place to say hello to a couple of our favorite gals. πŸ’Œ #urbaniclove 🐰🌿🍏

#wildercobalt #cheeksfordays We rode bikes to Whole Foods tonight to take Wilder's new bike seat for a spin! He LOVED it! We didn't capture it here, but he was shrieking in delight and waving at every person we passed. The sweetest! πŸš΄πŸ»πŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸ’• #wildercobalt #babysfirstbikeride #sovenice #90291
@yeppbikeseats #yeppmini One year ago, we were bringing Wilder home from the hospital, and getting the heck out of the NICU. It was such a relief to leave all of THIS craziness and scary stuff for the comfort of our own home. Our struggles weren't over, but thankfully we never had to bring him back to the NICU, despite what the medical professionals were predicting. Our little man was, and still is, a determined little fighter! I am beyond thankful for how far we have come this last year. Watching my beautiful boy grow and learn and do more and more each day is a surreal and mind blowing experience. He is a champion! πŸ†βœ¨
#wildercobalt #instaprompt_thankful #thealbumsco #nicubaby #tbt Yesterday our sweet Wilder Cobalt turned 1. We celebrated with many of our closest friends & beloved family in the brightest and most colorful way we could! We packed a lot of folks + lots of adorable babies into our house and played, ate and celebrated our sweetheart. It was a day for the books! Thank you to all who could make it! πŸŽˆπŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸŒˆπŸŽ‰ [Special shoutout to Wilder's Nona @yrbkladycarla who surprised us!]

#wildercobalt #wildercobaltturnsone One year ago this evening was when I started to feel my first pangs of labor. This sweet boy had decided he was coming a month early no matter what we wanted! That determined spirit has developed more and more through his first year, for better or for worse. ;) Tonight we went to the park for the last time before he's officially 1 year old and laughed and played. My handsome baby. The best. #wildercobalt #mommamusings #11monthsold #almost1yearold Thank you ALL for the birthday wishes today! I'm excited to begin my 31st year. Today I was thinking back to this time last year, unaware that I would become a mother so soon after, clueless to the joy that I would be experiencing day after day in such a short amount of time. That joy expands and fills me more and more each day - this week in particular, the love I feel for my son fills my heart to the point of almost bursting. Never did I think that my 30th year of life could be so full. Of course there have been difficult days, but the good days always wipe out the bad, especially in motherhood. My wonderful husband loves and cares for us beyond what I could even ask for, and my son is the light of my life. If 30 was this amazing, I'm really excited for the adventures 31 is sure to bring! #bringiton #31
#instaprompt_thankful ✨HAPPY✨ birthday to me. Dear husband got me fancy donuts this morning from #bluestardonuts, and the Christmas decorations I told him I wanted from Anthro! ✨🌲 Good thing I went to my morning workout at @deuce_gym - these sweet treats were cancelled out...right? (Or is it my workout that was cancelled...?) 😜 Good thing the Whole Life Challenge starts this weekend!
#happybirthdaytome I love these chilly overcast mornings with my Wilder. 4 days until my boy is 1 year old! βœ§β™‘βœ§
