When Scott, Kendall, my in-laws and I all started singing Happy Birthday to her after dinner last night, Leyna was very suspicious of the sudden group focus on her, it seemed. With a surprised look on her face, she looked behind her left and right (perhaps for an older sibling who she believed was more likely to be the subject of everyone’s gaze), then she looked back at all of us and slowly erupted into cheers, laughter and clapping.

Poor second-born. She’s not used to getting all the attention from everyone in the room at the same time. Of course she was suspicious!

Leyna is 1 year and 1 day old

  1. Happy Belated to Leyna. It’s funny because it’s the opposite in my house. BG2 steals all the attention while BG1 shows off with her cartwheels or plays video games. She is 7 and had 6 years all to herself though, so there’s that! 😉

  • He only likes to nurse in the morning and at night and anytime he sees me sit still or notices I’ve stopped moving for 2 seconds. 😆 #mothernurturemothernature

  • We launched a new YouTube channel, and we kicked it off by making bacon s’mores for the whole family! Looking forward to all the great videos I have planned for the coming weeks, including talking about how my #postpartumanxiety played into our decision to travel fulltime. There’s a link to our first video in my bio, and I would LOVE if you’d subscribe to our brand new channel! #happyloudlife
  • The debate rages on, but that silence is unmistakable. 😅
  • Be bold. Be brave. Be loud if you want. Be bossy. Be un moldable. But most of all, love, be YOU.
  • I would love to know what is one thing your mother taught you that you hope your kids learn from you and teach others? It could be a skill, a craft, a recipe, or just a life lesson! 💖My mom taught me to be empathetic and to encourage others. She has always been my biggest cheerleader, and I strive to model that for my children and others in my life now. It is my greatest hope that my kids will grow up to be compassionate people who truly support others. 💖 Your turn! #happymothersday2018
