This little guy is 11 months old! I can’t believe how much time has flown! He’s going to be ONE next month! His favorite things right now are smoothies (apple + pb + yogurt), french fries and my parents cat. His new word is ‘cat’ and he tries so hard to be her friend but she isn’t interested, lol. He loves crawling everywhere, can stand and squat (so so close to walking) and LOVES other babies and kids! One of my favorite things he does is kiss me when I look sad, with his mouth open and everything. He has a huge personality. I wish I could say I’ve taught him a lot but he’s taught me so much more. 💙#ThisIsGettingSappyQuick#11MonthsOld#ImALittleLateWithPosting#RaisingRafee
I love showing him the world! His new thing is saying “Hi” and “Hello!” (All in a British accent, lol) At first I thought it was a coincidence but nope- pretty sure he was saying hi to everyone in Baščaršija the other day! 🌍🇧🇦💙👋🏽#OhThePlacesYoullGo#RaisingRafee#Sarajevo#Bosnia
Time is a thief. 🕰 Rafee is 8 months old today! I bought this matching shirt and onesie set when I was pregnant and I’ve been counting down days to wear them! He finally fits 💙 even when he flies the nest one day he’ll still be my baby bird 🐣
P.S. working late tonight so extending the Waterwipes giveaway until Friday!
P.P.S. Anyone else note the collection of baby drool on the 0 block? #DroolEverywhere#RaisingRafee
The last six months with you, my baby boy, have been the most blessed days of my entire life and I cannot even remember how my life was before you. I never in my wildest dreams thought that I would transform so much for the better.
Having you has changed who I am. I am at peace, more patient, probably friendlier and definitely the best version of myself. Happy half birthday to you, my son. You are so valuable to me. More than diamonds and gold. More than anything I own. Mama loves you. #RaisingRafee#MashAllah#HalfBirthday
I love the little quirks my life now has. The three of us live through a living musical everyday...Raf’s diaper changing song, nap time song (I need to get my neighbor beats by Dre’s), there’s a blow out every morning like clockwork (any tips for that mamas? 🙈) and I’ve been more scattered than ever. I love it. I love this new normal and I always always want to be around this little human. I don’t mind the scattered-ness. I don’t mind the blow outs. I don’t mind the new musical me. I love it all. (Except when we’re driving alone and he cries in the car seat cuz omg that is the worst) 🚙🎵 #RaisingRafee MashAllah 💙
Rafee is five months old today 🎂Slow down man! I wanna soak in all the snuggles and you falling asleep in my arms as much as I can. Mama and Dada love you so much. Don’t ever forget ❤️ MashAllah #RaisingRafee
A highlight from yesterday was Solly asking me to take a picture of him and Rafee. Let me tell you guys- my husband doesn’t ASK to get his photos taken. He doesn’t pose, doesn’t really have a morning routine aside from brushing his teeth and spraying a dash of cologne, his instagram has like 50 posts... he’s a pretty simple guy. You see the professional pictures I post of us sometimes? It’s me making him do it 90% of the time. But he asked for these pictures, because both of them matched, and that to me is priceless. 👪❤️ #IWantAMatchingPhotoshootToo#DadsOfInstagram#RaisingRafee
Happy two month birthday to this little who isn’t so little anymore (wearing 3-6 month clothing now mA mA mA) my mini me, the Houdini of swaddle escaping and to the smiliest little boy I’ve ever met. Mommy and daddy love you so much ❤️😭 #RaisingRafee#GodBlessHisLittleHeart#MashAllah
