Should I make this my holiday card this year? Also, @insta2yearold tried to take a pic but Jane said, "You never take a photo of a lady from below." Point taken, @janelynchofficial! Thanks for the holiday party invite, Febreze. #12stinks

Harlow likes to nickname everything with an "ie" at the end. So that pink dolphin? His name is "Dolphinie".
mannlymama : LANDON DOES THIS. Crocy. Sharky. Tigy. All of them. Ollie? Does the opposite and names them totally different animals. A bison named Piggy. A cougar named Kangaroo. Couldn't make this shit up if I tried.
jesscoleman : My sons favorite bed buddy at the moment is a fluffy grey dolphin called "Dolphie"!!
globetrottingmommy : So funny my daughter named her stuffed dolphin Dolphina!!!
travelwewill : We have a Dolphinie too! We also have Lionie πŸ˜€
madwanders : We have a Penguinie, Green Sheetie (as in a blankie), Wolfie, Pinkie... the list goes on. My 5-year-old is yet to outgrow this naming technique.
georgimichelle : @kellykaayy the shoes
mizsweets76 : We have an owlie

Last year, Harlow pulled the classic "scream and go straight as a board" technique when meeting Santa. Do you have a classic family holiday photo fail? Crying Santa photos, family photos with toddlers who won't stop moving, husbands who just want to get back to the game, moms who look like they want to run away, etc. Hashtag it #familyfotofails and you could win a $250 @munchkininc gift card + prize pack. You must tag and follow both @mommyshorts and @munchkininc to win. Full details at the link in my bio.

kerrimarieeee : @allisonjoy1 submit Madison Santa picture.

Fast asleep in the car, clutching her bouquet of leaves.
rangersgirl6 : hate to be the crazy car seat lady, but she is very unsafe as pictured...those straps wouldn't hold her in place in the case of an accident. They need to me "snug as a hug" and no fabric should be able to be pinched at her shoulder level. I very much enjoy watching her grow along with my son who is only 3 days older than miss Harlow and I would hate to see something happen to her ☺
catastrophicfairytale : @mommyshorts my little girl calls them leabs too! 😍
mrsiannuzzi : @rangersgirl6 sorry to hijack he post here, but my seats do that when one side is looser than the other. It's very frustrating. Any ideas?
rangersgirl6 : @mrsiannuzzi sorry I don't have any ides because I don't have that brand of seat. Best I can say is to get them as even as possible before strapping in? I have an Evenflo and this doesn't happen. Maybe contact the manufacturer?
mrsiannuzzi : @rangersgirl6 that's ok. Thanks. :)
karethebear7 : I know that @mommyshorts is good about car saftey & I can't imagine being scrutinized for everything I did if it wasn't perfect everytime! She's transparent & real and I'm sure she'll fix the issue w/the left side being loose that day. She could have just parked & loosened her while she slept 😜
rangersgirl6 : totally @karethebear7 but if I didn't say something and Harlow was hurt I would feel terrible. I can't not say something when it comes to anyone's little person's saftety!
kellyolson : @rangersgirl6 I am the same way anytime my friends post a car seat picture and I see something wrong I let them know. I just do it in a private message (Facebook or email) rather than posting publicly just something to think about, because then you also know they have read and received it as well since I'm sure some people miss some comments on their pictures. That being said Harlow you are such a beautiful little girl!

I did a little summer house tour on Snapchat if you'd like to check it out (ilanawiles). A lot of people have been asking me to put this stuff on YouTube... but Snapchat is SO EASY (no uploading or editing) and much less pressure since it disappears. I'm not trying to leave anybody out and I'll still post other YouTube videos, I've just found something that makes video less intimidating for me, so I can do it more regularly.
mommyshorts : @jenniferdifolco The sofa is from Room and Board. Sunbrella fabric so we can clean it!
arrowsandespresso : I loooove your summer house. The white with splashes of color is πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
tiffymcgraw : πŸ‘πŸ½ Thank you. I think I like it better horizontal. But it's great either way.
lexxingtonave : Your Snapchat story is typically the highlight of my day, especially when there is dancing and/or singing Harlow. Love it!
nestingstory : @the_actual_factual_dad
snadraw : Thanks for the tour! So much fun!
jenniferdifolco : Thanks so much @mommyshorts
youampersandme : You can download your snapstory and upload that onto YouTube! Just an idea

That doll is almost as big as Harlow.
mommyshorts : @shana_flower I know. Mike thinks it's a money pit and told Grammy not to get them the dolls. Grammy insisted and said she will be responsible for all American Girl gifts. We'll see how that goes!
shana_flower : You will cave very soon! Just warning you😜 @mommyshorts
housegypsy : I agree with Mike! @mommyshorts
partyofsix_04 : @mommyshorts we have over 15 dolls and boxes of clothes. Love them!!
aablythe04 : @mommyshorts during a recent shopping excursion for a trip to DC, the girls showed up at my side with piles of baby clothes... For their AG dolls.
daniellerobbins380 : @jerseygirl223
megbed07 : Just watched your house tour on snapchat. It is gorgeous!! I love that house!!
mangomomma216 : My dd is getting her first American Girl Doll from Santa this year. I'm so excited! I bought it used on EBay, so less that half of retail and I fixed it up. I must say though I think Madame Alexander's 18" dolls are way prettier, and cost much less, double score!

Every year on Thanksgiving, Mazzy and Maia (my stepbrother's daughter) pick up right where they left off. This year Harlow joined right in. #cousins πŸ™ŒπŸ»
cousins -
memccall : Sweet girls!!
mommyshorts : @kellykels06 Maia is six, about nine months older than Mazzy.
jhhensley : Cutest kids ever, except for my grands, of course.
mlporter1017 : πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ it was like this with my cousins and myself. I am an only child and it was the best time with them :)
georgimichelle : @kellykaayy perfection
travelwewill : How fun!!!
misslechuck : She looks super grown up here!
reasonable_expectations : Beautiful kids

For the past few years, my mom has been throwing Friday Thanksgiving, which lets everyone do separate things on Thursday and still be able to come together the next day. She always includes a birthday cake for me as part of Thanksgiving dessert. Tonight, I shared that honor with Mazzy and Harlow since all our birthdays are within the month! It's been ice cream cake since I was little. That's our tradition.
_chroniclesofus_ : We do the same thing! But ours is on Saturday and since everyone is turkey'd out by then we choose a different country to celebrate each year and cook its authentic dishes. This year- Spain! Complete with a giant bull piñata for the kids to demolish after. πŸ˜„πŸŽ‰
megsanz : I love the expression on your mom's face 😍 Her heart is full ❀️
mountaingirl24 : Adorable!
oryanng : That's à precious image...
jenpoff : That is great!
karina.jay : Kuddos to your Mom for being understanding and unselfish about sharing the holiday. It is a rarity amongst older relatives and parents.
mperlman : We do a Friday thanksgiving too and call it Franksgiving 😊
julibluemoon : @mommyshorts , did I see Harlow shopping in Soho on Friday? If so she would be on my "celebs spotted in Soho" list, along with Nichole Kidman and Jerry Garcia.

Sometimes I wish we had introduced Mazzy and Harlow to a kid's tablet instead of an adult tablet, but they weren't around when Mazzy was little and now my girls have been spoiled by adult technology. When @vtechtoys asked me to try out their InnoTab Max tablet, I asked my sister (the school psychologist) if she wanted to test out the device on her two-year-old. My sister has always been anti-screen time for toddlers under two, but now needs something to help occupy Jack while she takes care of their new baby. In other words, the perfect candidate to test out the benefits of a learning tablet. Read all about her experience on the blog. Link in bio. #sp

mamaprice14 : @smilliecharlotte no what you always get are a few "trolls" commenting negativity about your posts just looking for attention or to start up a debate so they can focus attention onto themselves. True it is a down side to social media if you want to be one of those people have at it. By the way I trolled on over to your insta ya know the one you post you're life on, well any who if you have children and a neice and you're a nanny for two families why are the only babies you have on your insta your dogs? I call bs on you and this will be the last time I respond.
cucumberjuice : @smilliecharlotte Well said...both times.
smilliecharlotte : @mamaprice14 .. Not that I have to justify anything or try to prove anything about the young family that I love and treasure, but I have two Instagram accounts, a private account where I post photos of my favourite memories with my children (mostly) but as well as my niece and my other children that I look after. I use my Instagram account as well as my FB account where I have only family and close friends on there to also post pictures of my children; most of my family are in UK, so it's a nice way for them to see what's happening in my life and so they don't feel they miss as much. I also don't like posting pictures of my children on public social media, they're too precious and you can't be too careful nowadays. So, I'd say you're the "troll" if anything. Have a good day!
smilliecharlotte : @mamaprice14 I also consider my dogs my babies too, if you want to go down that track πŸ˜‰
mamaprice14 : @smilliecharlotte lol so this is your TROLL account enough said! #pointproven
smilliecharlotte : I would say more like my account where I follow friends and other people, but if you want to call it TROLL account, that's your opinion and I'm not going to get my knickers in a twist over it. If it makes you feel better that you think you've proven a point, then I'll let you have this one. :) @mamaprice14 #endofconvo
arilgax : Gotta admit tablets are waaaay useful when you have children at home, but my little cousins (2, 3 and almost 4 y/o) can entertain themselves very well with their toys!!!! On the other side, my sister and two other cousins are 9 and I think you can't expect they to not go all curious about technology. By this time the three of them own their tablet and use them for games and homework :) My opinion is that you must introduce your children to technology, because that's how the world is nowadays, just with moderation and not using it just for keeping them 'away' πŸ˜€ there are plenty of things one can do with an ipad :)
foodiegirl77 : I have a three year old who started reading at two, has mastered all of our states preschool standards, most of the kindergarten standards and some of first grade standards. She has an incredibly vibrant, active imagination, is a social butterfly and the joy of our lives. She gets screen time. And it has had no negative effect on her. I say, you know your children, better than any "specialist" or mommy guilter out there. Be confident in your decisions and ignore everyone else.
