Awhile back I wrote a post dedicated to my beautiful Mom friends and Yulady was a featured Momma in my post. Click here to read that post. We met at a yoga teacher training at Strala in 2010. Yulady is 32 years young has 3 kids and 3 step-kids making a grand total of 6!!! I have always admired how much she enjoyed her life and her many children. It made me embrace the news of having yet another set of twins. Thanks for that lady. I don’t have many friends with 6 kids like me. Recently my beautiful friend Yulady was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and must undergo a double mastectomy. She will also have chemotherapy and radiation. She is in for a battle but I know this lady is a warrior and will come out kicking this cancer’s ass. You can follow her journey via YouTube videos by clicking here. Please send my friend Yulady lots of healing thoughts and prayers. Love your life and appreciate every minute. Be thankful for good health and don’t sweat the small stuff. You are an inspiration Yulady Sending lots of love and light.

Okay, I lied. I was going to post this monthly but I got a few more photos and was inspired to feature more of my amazing Mommy friends right away. These are ladies inspire me and encourage me to be a better mom. Thanks ladies.
This is the gorgeous Diane and her sweet little flower child Audrey (5yrs). Somehow Diane manages to juggle being a photographer, a hottie wife, a Supermom, and a PTA Vice President. I’m exhausted even listing all the things my dear friend manages to do in a day. You are truly amazing Diane. Audrey is by far the most creative dresser I know. She summons Mick Jagger, Axel Rose, and Stevie Nicks. You are my style icon Audrey. She gets it from her Mommy. Here’s a link to her sites. www.dianevasilphotography.com and www.captureddaydreams.com Check them out she’s crazy talented.
This is my lovely friend Carolyn and her little bean Eloise. Carolyn brought me mountain climbing for the first and only time a few years back. Little did I know I was pregnant with my first set of twins at the time. I’m looking forward to our next lesson when and if we ever have the time. We got to be pregnancy buddies this year and our babies were born 1 month apart. It’s going to be really nice to raise our kids together. Carolyn is intelligent, beautiful, and sarcastic. She’s a triple threat. It’s no wonder why I adore her. Eloise is wearing a top by petit bateau.
Beautiful Shannon and I were friends pre-baby days. Many nights of cocktails and fun at Beauty Bar. She told me she was pregnant and literally days later I found out I was too. We delivered our babies in the same birthing center, in the same room, just 4 days apart. She was my pregnancy twin. My daughter Mia and Shannon’s daughter Gigi (5yrs) have been buddies from day 1. Shannon is a very loving and passionate person. It serves her well in her work as a photographer. You can check out her work at www.shannonsinclair.com She’s also a total stunner. Just saying.
Gigi is wearing sweater by Ralph Lauren, pants/shirt/headband BabyGap & belt 77kids
So this is it for now. I am hoping to do this again when I receive some more pictures from friends. Please e-mail me your submissions at email@example.com.

I was going to title this post MILF but I decided to make it a little more PG. I want to share with you all my awesome mommy friends and their sweet kids. I will try to make mention what brands of clothing the kids have on if I know because I’m always on the hunt for cute kids gear. I will be doing these posts monthly featuring a handful of my lovely and talented friends. If you would like to nominate or submit a mommy please feel free to email me a photo firstname.lastname@example.org Enjoy!
This is my friend Sarah and her handsome little boy Leo. She lights up the room with her beautiful smile. We actually met through our hairdresser Maria at Self Saloon. I had the pleasure of being Sarah’s doula for the birth of this amazing little guy. I love to seeing how fast these little peanuts grow. His outfit is adorable.
Hat- Tane Organics(Pomme)
Jacket- Zara Kids
Sweater- H&M Kids
Leggings- Gap Kids
The most perfect grey socks- unknown from Sweet William
Booties- Boumy(the mini social)
This is my friend Jenn mother of 2, pictured with her oldest daughter Maeve. She’s another Brooklyn Mom. I’ve spent many a day at the park chasing my kids with Jenn. My daughter Mia is in the same kindergarten class with her daughter Maeve and absolutely adores her. I also adore Jenn. So calm and collected. She could teach me a thing or two.
Dress- Olive juice
This is Yulady. She rules. She is pictured here with 3 of her kids Ashlee 12, Holden 5, and Wyatt 3. She has 3 more step-kids. So yes that’s 6 total. A woman after my own heart. I met Yulady at a yoga teacher training at Strala in NYC. She resides in NJ. I was impressed by her rock hard body and the fact that she has 6 kids and loves it. So inspiring. You go momma! She shops at Century 21 for all the kids clothes.
Last but certainly not least is Gina with her son Xavior Sage. I also had the great pleasure of being Gina’s doula very early on in my doula career. I recall Gina insisting on parallel parking her car while in the throes of labor. She’s a rock star. Thanks for letting me be apart of such a beautiful birth. Xavior is wearing thrifted threads. Love his holiday sweater. Too cute.
Until my next batch of awesome mommies…….
