Sharing some outfits I already posted on instagram but not here on the blog. I have been "micro-blogging" on instagram. I post there daily. Since I intend to print my blog posts (publish a book!), I want to share some of those captions and thoughts here.

🦋 The butterfly said to the sun, ☀️ "They can't stop talking about my transformation.
I can only do it once in my lifetime.
If only they know they can do it at any time and in countless ways."

If i didn’t let go of the notion of a perfectly decorated and clean home, I’d never host a #blessedisshebrunch. My house is by no means the way I want it to look. There’s clutter. There’s lots to clean. Our ceiling in our sunroom has a hole (!) and is still not repaired! But I did have a clean dining room and a yummy #eggcroissantcasserole. There’s flowers (thanks @dianastlouis) and lots more food to share (thanks wonderful ladies who made it today). Thanks @derrick49ers for taking 8 kids to the park so we can have a couple of hours of fellowship. Nash and I enjoyed brunch.

I got some airtime on this photo. 😉 photo shoots with my little photographer are so fun. Isabel has the eye. She’s been asking to use my big camera. 📷 Right now, Isabel is killing it with the iPhone cam.

Who would have thunk it? Making #indiana home? I’m an #indianatransplant. I married @derrick49ers who is another Indiana transplant. Now we have made Indiana #ourhome. I’m #bornandbred per se in the #IUfamily attending #iumedicalschool, IU #pediatricresidency and IU #neurologyresidency. I am now an IU #faculty mentoring future #physicians
All of my 6 children are #Hoosiers! Indiana is a great place to raise them. #midwestvalues I just wish Indiana winter is shorter 😓 😝 
Who do I need to thank for transplanting me here? My mamey @spencercali! I would have lived in KY and be a #southerngirl if she didn’t move here ♥️

Voy a reír, voy a bailar
Vivir mi vida, la la la la
Voy a reír, voy a gozar
Vivir mi vida, la la la la
#marcanthony’s song vivir mi vida
🌸🏖♥️ #bittersweet that my favorite season is leaving to make way for autumn. Bittersweet that my maternity leave with my sweet baby Nash is almost over. The song above resonates to me today. 
So I say (to me and to y’all) 
Voy a reír, voy a bailar
Siente y baila y goza
Que la vida es una sola

happy birthday sebastian!

You are now 6 years old! My sweet, serious Sebastian is a big kindergartner!
You have a different kind of smile. You use it to communicate with me. I love capturing your true smile and not just the one for mummy's big camera.  (can you guys tell which smile I am talking about? The one that has several layers of meaning behind the smile?)

You are soft spoken which makes it even sweeter to hear your voice. You love hugs and you tell me you love me, ALL THE TIME.

I felt really bad when I made a bad joke and you took it seriously.
Your sister asked: Mummy, which one do you love more? Your children or your purses?
I answered: Of course.... MY PURSES!
(it was a sarcastic answer!)
 We all just laughed and moved on. 10 minutes later we heard you wailing and sobbing. Oh my poor baby! You took my answer seriously. You truly thought I love my purses more than you.  I apologized and gave you hugs and kisses as soon as we were out of the car.

You teach me to love more and be present. Since you have louder sibs, I make sure I ask you and look at you and wait for YOUR answer. I value your answer, Sebastian. You definitely love the eye contact I give you. Because, I too, have a special smile just for you. With my smile directed towards you, I tell you I love you. With my smile directed towards you, I tell you I cherish you.

I sing you songs and you become bashful. Again, you give me a special smile JUST FOR ME.
Happy birthday, sweet Sebastian! May the Lord continue to bless you everyday.
