@chrissyteigen, Thank you for keeping it real! This is what postpartum really looks like! Hair pulled back; no shirt on because your baby is nursing around the clock; the universal and ridiculously huge mesh panties; baby that likely hates being put down (don’t they all?); and an older sibling playing and running around in the background. Who can relate!?

Behind every young child who believes in themselves, is a parent who believed first 💕 I always tell my daughter she can do whatever she puts her mind to. She’s 3 and learned to ride a bike with no training wheels. You better believe I’m super proud of her! She was determined! I’ll tell you one thing about my daughter, she doesn’t easily give up! At first she couldn’t start on her own we had to hold her up and then she would pedal. Now she can start all on her own! Proud mommy moment! 📸 @alialistone Dress and outfit @oldnavy #oldnavystyle

Our Sunday Testimony ❤️ It’s amazing what can happen with faith, prayerful, and true determination. A couple of years ago I didn’t even know if Noah would ever be able to walk, and now look at him Go! He is busier than ever and I’m proud to say that I’m running just to keep up with him! My Baby Noah has been through two rounds of serial casting with @abilitylab , has seen multiple physical therapists and orthopedic doctors, and has been a patient of the physical therapy programs at both @luriechildrens and @abilitylab for the past three years. And now look at all the progress that he has made in such a short time! Baby Noah is Blessed and I couldn’t be more proud of him❤️ #babynoah #noahthehero #rubinsteintaybisyndrome #specialneedskids #specialneedsmom #specialneedsparents #specialneedsfamily #littlehero #littlewarrior #walk #physicaltherapy #pt #physicaltherapist #abilitylab #chicago #toddlers #boymom #chicagomom #specialneedsadvocate #inspiration #faith #testimony #gonoahgo #luriechildrens #shirleyryanabilitylab #amourgenesis

We are currently living in an in-between season filled with more questions than answers, but our hands are open to whatever God will do. We’ve surrendered it all, including our home. While we’d love to know the exact plan, He hasn’t asked for us to know it all. He’s asked for our yes, and that’s where we are at. - - - - - #authenticadventureco #livepurposefully #liveauthentically #healingjourney #keepthefaith #bedeeplyrooted #belovedlife #givemejesus #christianblogger #latinablogger #latinamom #latinx #calledtobecreative #wahmlife #momlife #momtogirls #seekthesimplicity #chicagomom #browngirlblogger #givemejesus #trustingod #faithblogger #godisgreater #nothingisimpossible #changetheworld #inmybackyard #creativesolutions #mindofchrist #bethechange #surrender

Ok, it’s time to talk about the menstrual cup. I can’t keep quiet about it anymore! I’ve been using it since January and it has been a #gamechanger for reals, my period feels less stressful to me now. I didn’t realize it felt stressful until I was out of town last week and had to use tampons again. The cup is so low maintenance compared to tampons, you put it in, completely forget about it and then change it 12 hours later. No leaking, no moist undies, no carrying pouches with tampons to the bathroom, you can #2 without it popping out (tmi, but so true with tampons), no strings hanging and best of all no pesticides sitting in your hooha. Plus it’s WAY cheaper. Sold?!? Anyone else love the cup? Any questions, comment below.

butternut squash + butter + salt😍 it has been an incredibly long day, still moving into my new home from the condo I was leasing (and bringing stuff from there has been the bane of my existence for the past month 🙄...this combined with leg day today and 3 hours of yard work just made me want to eat a bagel, or pasta, or something not optimal. I’d really like to redistribute my weight a little, so I need to pick better carbs—something I completely struggle with... so here is my small attempt at turning the tide:) #myfitnessjourney #strongnotskinny #momstrong #momswholift #fitmomof4 #momof4 #3girlsandaboy #chicagomom #doctormom #momsinmedicine

Cheers to Memorial Day weekend🍻 • Chicago has amazing parks, but nothing beats any green space right along the lake. Picnic game is strong when you have a view of the @chicago skyline and are steps from a lake so big it feels like an ocean. 🌊 • Recommend stopping off at @marianosmarket for some picnic essentials and then find your perfect spot in the ☀️ • • • • • • • #visitchicago #familyfuntime #citytour #chicagotrip #chicagotourist #chicagofamily #triptochicago #cityguide #chicagolife #summerinchicago #chicagoadventures #chicagoadventure #makethemostofit #makememories #takeatrip #picnicdate #familyfunday #familyouting #findingfun #makingourownfun #chicagocityguide #chicagomom #mominthecity #fulldayoffun #familyfuntime #lincolnparkzoo #planitout #mommaandme #momandme #cheers

Traveling with kids can be tough but it's so worth it to experience a city for the first time all over again through her eyes. If I could live anywhere else, I'd choose San Francsico in a heart beat. 💛

“Kelly has been the best go-to person when we are in need of solid sleep training advice. She gives us practical take-away advice that works every time! She is supportive and was there if I needed encouragement. My 3.5 year old was not able to but herself to sleep so bedtime would always be a struggle. Either my husband or I would need to lay in bed with her til she feel asleep. Kelly helped developed a plan that worked for us and now bed time is so much more enjoyable! Stories, kisses and lights out! She put herself to sleep and I can get to the dishes. I feel like I have my evening back!” 🛌 –Sonia (mom of a 3.5 year old), IL 💎 . . .

A Morning Called Bliss 📖 Obsessed with this first morning hour and setting the tone for myself every day... I used to NOT be a "morning person" but now it's a necessity to spend time in some of my favorite things when I first wake up.

I'm horrible at stretching! I know it's bad yet I still skip it a lot. This morning, I did an ALL STRETCH workout & it felt amazing! I didn't have to think of moves, it was part of my online library of workouts.

V A C A Y. Adaline is loving Mexico. I kid. But she is definitely living her best life. She had so much—too much—fun in Milwaukee, visiting Shammy 👯‍♂️ and it’s been nothing but fun since. Naps and sleep have been a bit elusive but we’re having so much fun it’s hard to get worried (kinda). Speaking of sleep, I JUST learned the sleeping through the night is actually just 6 hours—not 12. Did you moms already know that? •

Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust...is what mamas run on everyday! We have faith, we trust in a higher power and when we are at our wits we pray for magic (pixie dust). Check out my latest blog post. We teamed up with @disney to celebrate the 65th anniversary of Peter Pan! The movie is being re-released with never before seen footage! We decided to use this opportunity to celebrate the end of the school year with a mantra of having faith, trust and loads of Pixie Dust! . .

I made a Ramadan to-do list weeks in advance -action items to tackle before beginning of the month, and ones to follow during Ramadan e.g. fasting, praying, Quran recitation, translation, & Taraweeh (I know these are the basics, but with 20 little wiggling toes to chase, I find hard to keep up “with the basic”) Low and behold, the day Ramadan started I got my period, and came down with one of the absolute worst Sinus infection. Not only was I not able to do any of the things in my Ramadan to-do list. I could barely fulfill my everyday motherly duties. Alhumdullilah I have learned so much, and today is only the 3rd day I have had the opportunity to fast. 1. My body after having 2 kids is no longer the same. I can’t get away with eating a disproportionate meal, I have to get all my macros right. So moms, feed yourselves before the family. 2. I won’t be going to the Masjid for Taraweeh this year yet once again, and that’s OKAY. 3. Not waking up for Suboor, or eating a nutritional meal can make your body suffer, and make you super irritable. 4. This ^ will affect the efficiency and quality of your Ibadah and the way you chose to interact with your family, friends, & colleagues. 5. Fasting during Ramadan is only good for your body and soul if done correctly. 6. SubhanAllah fasting helps you rejuvenate and prepares you to practice more patience and perseverance for the rest of the year. 6. I thought I was going to lose it with my kids, but even in the midst of mad hunger pangs, I find myself to be more calm and collective. Anybody else? 7. There’s more to us than our physical self. Ramadan brings that out in subtle beautiful ways. I was disheartened with how we kicked off Ramadan this year. But, things have shifted to take such a positive turn. If you’re currently struggling as I was or haven’t been able to be 💯 during Ramadan, don’t beat yourself up, specially if you’re a new mom. Things will fall in place for you at the right time. iA . . . . . . . #ramadan2018 #ramadandiaries #ramadanmoments #ramadanreflections #muslimwomen #muslimmom #suhoor #ramadancrafts #pakistanistreetstyle #pakistanimom #pakistaniclothing #minnieminors #ramadankid

Hello Instafam! The saying "Health is wealth" is so true! I was sick since a week and was feeling horrible. My energy levels were so low that I couldn’t function properly 😑. I had to drag myself through the day to get things done. We don’t realize how blessed we are until a small little reminder hits us. Why wait till then , thank your creator now for his countless blessings onto us 🙏🏼 Happy Friday Friends 🤗 #alhumdulillahforeverything - - - - - - - #friday #fridaymood #fridayvibes #ramadan2018 #momblogger #hijaber #hijabchic #hijabista #hijabstyle #instagram #instashare #instafollow #instagirls #girls #followforfollow #likeforfollow #blogger #chicagoblogger #chicagomom #momof3 #healthylifestyle #healthiswealth #positivevibes #instagramhub

When you travel you learn things about yourself. This trip I learned that my bangs are finally long enough to style off my face, making me feel free and able to sport a new look. When I get back I’ll post a tutorial on how to achieve this. Hint-a flatiron was used. This is a great technique for styling hair during awkward grow out phase . . . . . . . #michelledoesgoodhair #mixedcosalon #chicagosalon #rivernorth #rivernorthsalon #rivernorthchicago #chicagolife #coolgirlhair #chicagohairstylists #chicagostyle #rivernorthchicago #rivernorthhair #hairgoalschicago #chicagohairsalon #rivernorthhairsalon #chicagohairstyle #chicagomom #rivernorthmom #chicagomomlife #rivernorthmomlife #rivernorthhairstylist #windycitybloggers #chicagogrammers #wcbcstyle #chicagohair #chicagobloggers #chicagohairstylist #bangsgrowingout #growoutyourhair #awkwardbangstage

Do you hit any big sales over the 3 day weekend usually? We have been known to check out the outlet malls nearby for extra savings. This weekend you don’t even have to leave your house to get some fabulous deals though. Shop from home or baseball games or picnics on my Jamberry website and take 25% off regular priced items and 50% off hair care products. Perfect time to stock up for those summer mani-pedis! Make sure to use the code WEEKENDER25 when you check out to see the extra 25% discount.
