Sensory Seeking Sebastian

Hello all!

For the past year and a half this book has been burning in me. If you’ve followed my posts or videos for a while, you would remember that our oldest son is diagnosed with ADHD and also has some sensory processing struggles. We’ve learned so many strategies over the years, and we wanted to share them with you all.

Sensory Seeking Sebastian is a book that empowers sensory seekers with strategies that help with self regulation. This book is perfect for families who want to equip their sensory seeker to navigate the challenges of ADHD, Autism, and SPD.

I’m a masterpiece!

Say it loud! This has been an anthem in the DeShields’ house for the last few weeks. Our three beautiful boys are each different and special in their own way. They have separate struggles, but we are learning to celebrate their differences and speak truth to their weakness.

3rd Trimester Style Challenge; Staying Fine with Only 9.

Hey guys,

It’s literally been forever since I posted a blog. A year ago this past September to be exact. I think a combination of lack of creativity and time are the culprits, but I never stopped thinking about this blog. I’m almost finished reading a book called the The Artisan Soul, by Erwin McManus and it’s sufficiently set my creative soul on fire! So much so that I had to return to one of my loves, this blog, and talk about one of my favorite topics, fashion.

If you follow my instagram posts, you should be aware that I’m pregnant with baby boy number three (pray for your girl 😂)!

Honestly I love having boys. Heck, I don’t know any different. So as a veteran, I’m not freaking out… well that much!

One of the things I’ve done differently this time around, since it’s my last pregnancy, was enlist the help of a personal trainer. I really wanted to continue to grow in my fitness journey and didn’t want to slow down momentum just because I was pregnant. If Serena Williams can win a grand slam six months pregnant, I can definitely have the fittest pregnancy of my life.

Thank you Jesus that I’m connected with an amazing trainer who has helped me so much. I’m eating clean and training with her twice a week, and I’ve never felt better. At 30 weeks, I have lost a total of 19 inches all over my body while growing baby. I have not experienced pregnancy edema (yet), most of my clothes still fit, and I feel really good! It’s been a great decision.

Although I feel really good, I’m at the stage where I barely want to put on clothes 😂. However, as a working mom I don’t have that luxury. I’ve got a little less than 10 weeks left, so I’ve challenged myself to “stay fine down to the line.” 😂😂😂😂 That’s something my husband would say or this one, “stay fine even with 9… weeks to go”.  I’m also taking the minimalist approach to the challenge. Unless you have an endless supply of maternity clothes, most mommas-to-be are limited to the number of items they fit comfortably in the last trimester. So I’ve styled 25 outfits with 9 items of clothing + 1 scarf.
