My heart just exploded!! 💙 #DriesLayneMandler
When I was younger I vowed never to visit Paris till I was in love. For years, I said no, declined invitations and skipped out on events and celebrations. The very first time I went to Paris, I went with Anthony. We’ve been back probably two dozen times, this city is like another home for us. This is 👸’s 6th trip to Paris and our first visit as a family of four. I couldn’t be more in love than right here, right now in this moment. I’ll always be grateful that I waited. @anthonymandler we’ll always have Paris! I love you, and us, and our little family!! 🙏🏽💖💙
For me, breastfeeding has been a beautiful way to bond with both of my littles—but it didn’t come as naturally as one might think. Even this second time around! Mamas and even experienced mamas 🙋🏽‍♀️ can have questions when it comes to nursing their newborns. Head to the site (link in bio) to find some answers to those questions. Was breastfeeding challenging for you, too? #maedmama #nationalbreastfeedingweek
We did it! We made it through our first flight as a family of 4 🎉🥳🍾 There were several trialing moments, an argument or two (or maybe three) between mama and papa, a handful of toddler temper tantrums and spit up everywhere! Wasn’t easy but we got through it and we’ll keep on getting better at it each time. Don’t let the chaos of traveling with your children keep you from showing them the world. Practice makes perfect and memories are the best gifts ever!! First stop NYC! Can’t wait for my family to meet 🐬 #DriesLayneMandler #LennoxMaeMandler
Doesn’t get any sweeter than this 💗💙
Now that I’m a mama of two I have a lot less time to get ready so I’ve been working on simplifying my makeup routine. Check out @maed ’s newest post (link in bio) and see how I created this daytime look in 5 minutes with @beautycounter. P.S. Happy #worldbreastfeedingweek 🤱🏽💋
Day 27 of 40 days at home postpartum... We actually had to step out of the house for 2 hours to apply for 🐬’s birth certificate— something you HAVE to do when you have a home birth. It took me forever to figure out how to buckle him in his car seat ( I learned 2 months ago when we had the seat installed but completely forgot! Gotta remove that under 8lbs insert 🤦🏽‍♀️). It was my first drive with both kids in the car so I drove like a snail and I was sweating profusely from a mix of hormones and jittery nerves. Mama was a straight hot mess!! Needless to say it was absolutely exhausting for both of us. Welcome to being a #mamaoftwo P.S. 👸 was a 💎 and I’m so grateful @claudializzani came with me. #DriesLayneMandler #maedmama
Pictures! Pictures! And more pictures! Because these sweet moments won’t last forever. #mamaoftwo P.S. how cute are these mama and mini bassinets from @shoplovedua 🧺 ?💋
On June 28th we welcomed our beautiful, healthy 8lb 8oz baby boy, Dries Layne Mandler into the world. He was born 12 days past his estimated due date (just like 👸). I labored for one incredibly intense hour, Lennox Mae was front and center, and hubby caught his son fully supported by our loving birth team. Our home birth was fast and furious but absolutely magical. We’ve spent the last two weeks (mostly in bed) falling in love with baby 🐬 He’s beyond perfect!! Thank you for picking our family Dries—you are so deeply loved. Mama, Papa and Big Sissy promise to always be there for you. To guide you, protect you and support you for all time. @anthonymandler , another one for the books! Once again, we did it our way! I love you, Papa! Thank you Instafam for riding along and holding our family in your 💙💖s. Love y’all xxDV #drieslaynemandler #vasimandlerbaby2 #homebirth #birthwithoutfear #miv
