Quarantine activities! I want to catch up on some reading, too, but hooray for kids books and my brother @brandoheath’s follow up book to Jungle Voice is here! (Not a sequel but from the same universe.) It’s called THE HIPPO AND THE FLAMGINGO and it’s about friendship transcending differences to find what we (they) have in common. Another great message. I’ll put the link in my bio. Pick one up and settle in. #linkinbio #quarantine 💚 🦛 🦩💚

I tried to post less than 10 and gave up. My girls. Valentine’s is about love. It should be about any and every form and expression of it! Romantic love, sure. (I lovvve you, my Love!) But! Also: love for yourself, your siblings, for your your kids, your parents, your chosen family, your work-friends, your favorite coffee shop, your time alone at the gym, your secret paint-by-numbers hobby??? Anything. LOVE. Love for every stranger who exists. Love for those who don’t know much in the way of love. Love of learning. Love of writing. Love of cooking! Love of reading! Love of animals. Love of love... #happyvalentinesday ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

What an enjoyable thought process I’ve been set on by @americanair, who has started a campaign to support women in entertainment, and sent me this pin, “WOMEN FLY BEYOND”. They asked me who I admire, and there are so many hard-working women I admire from afar, (@alma.harel made a humdinger of an artwork — did you see Honey Boy??) but here are a few I’ve had the pleasure of knowing, in order in which I met them: @sophiabanksc is a director who I admire for her passion. She’s got one kid and one helluva lot of hustle. @rmorrison is — obviously? — the first and only female cinematographer to be nominated for an Oscar. She is unbelievably talented and ridiculously humble. And is normalizing working while pregnant and breastfeeding in an environment that’s not only male-dominant but wherein work days run 16+ hours on the regular @sumnermickey is a bad mother——, a dope actress, a dedicated mother and activist. @the_elle_key is an incredible writer-director who everyone wants to work with and everyone is smart for that! Endless ideas and charm, you can count on her to get shit done. There you have it. #weflybeyond 💙 Thanks for adding your voice to the conversation, @americanair

This is the raddest of dads. This guy took the first pic on a self-timer out in the flippin wilderness alone with both children. (Me and my milk-makers miles away.) Bold move! One of many. You know he delivered Polly. While distracting Shane with a dvd of The Lion King. And not even freaking out about it. And that, of course, was only the beginning. The creativity (epic forts from cardboard boxes) and humor every day impress me and makes me so happy. @coelmaness you make the our girls happy! And you make me so happy. Thank you for everything. ♥️♥️♥️

First of all, Toy Story 4 is yet another masterpiece. Secondly, the premiere was as much fun for the grownups as it was for the kids and it was A LOT of fun for the kids. We went in support of our buddy @keeganmichaelkey who slays in it.

As a #fabfitfunpartner I just got this new Swell bottle in my Spring #fabfitfun box. (If you’re not already subscribed you can get $10 off your first box with code ERIKA at fabfitfun.com.) Props to @Swellbottle for making the reusable water bottle a real part of everyday life for so many people. I used to fill up and carry around a glass liter bottle everywhere. (You remember that @giovannireda??) Many movie/tv sets have transitioned to water coolers at which everyone fills their own container instead of providing plastic bottles of water. It’s all still in transition, of course, but it’s cool that so many are working hard to cut back on waste. Anyway, you can get this and so many more products in the @fabfitfun Spring box!

It’s a good thing parenting isn’t a competition because this guy would put us all to shame on tv and in real life. His special skills should include making people happy, bringing unexpected coffee, wry jokes, being earnest, making smoking look cool (on screen), allowing you to think and express deeply held beliefs and ideas, and making cute kids with his wife (in real life). Happy birthday to the best person. ♥️ to Joel...from...‘ia.

Very cool that the teachers strike has come to a resolution (out here — LAUSD, and they got some good improvements and a small raise). However, I recommend all negotiations done anywhere, ever should be conducted by two-year-olds. The reasoning is impressive, the tenacity unmatched.

Breaking the rules now! I want to comment upon them now. Day 6/10 of the #filmchallenge. This frame is from The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. It’s a true story, and one that easily falls into the category of “the triumph of the human spirit” / “restore your faith in humanity”, a commonality it shares with he first one I posted, The Intouchables (though I don’t think that’s a true story). (Someone has now informed me that it IS a true story too!) The imagery is groundbreaking. The story is moving and true to the letter, based upon the protagonist’s autobiography. If you haven’t seen it, see it sixth in your lineup of movies I recommend. 😉

It happened! It happened this morning. And it will go down in family history because babygirl’s own, incredible Dad delivered her all by himself. My fault, as I didnt know she would come so quickly and didn’t call the doc until far too late. He came straight over and arrived about one minute after she joined us in the world. Haha! My Mom too. You should’ve seen their faces when they walked in to hear her little wail. Mom immediately took this picture. So epic. 9:21a (we think) at 7lbs 8oz (we think). 😆 Doc didn’t have time to grab the baby scale in his rush. Meet Ms. Polly. She’s chubby-cheeked and rosy and so beautiful. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

I’d like to think we were just too busy celebrating for me to assemble this post yesterday. It was Dada’s birthday! And not to be shared with his new daughter I guess, though we were hoping... (Pretty sure in the second pic, @dizmihok is distracting him and making him laugh from off camera. Also, we have so many family bath/shower pics. Also, go all the way to the last pic because that sh*t is cute.) Babe — thank you for being so fun and loving and inspiring. Happy birthday week! ♥️♥️♥️

This looks like a Dali painting, where I’m melting. My belly is melting off my body. Right? Hahaha. Perhaps both the most intimate and yet the most foreign thing to occur to my body. So, I’m due THURSDAY. Still hoping for sooner, not because I’m over being pregnant but because, knowing what I’m getting into this time, I’d like to get on with it! Days spent pre-cooking meals and refamiliarizing myself with nursing accouterments and planning for this laying-in phase make me want to start! Meanwhile, the problem with finding a new show to binge is that I care more about Bosch’s cases than I do about my own life. I’m only watching at a reasonable pace to save some for recovering from delivery! #bingelife @boschamazon

Naps on naps! Made one last beach day before baby. I do assume it’s any day now. Felt so awesome to get in the ocean, and Shane had a great time. (Knocked OUT now!) ☺️😄🌊

Last night’s premiere of @spywhodumpedme proved a few things to me: that Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon are already, at their young ages, legendary; that it’s a real adventure going out when you’re pregnant AF; and that I am, in fact, pregnant AF. Modeling the dress at home and then out. Feeling all the preggo ladies. S/o to @hilaryduff for her post about how hard it can actually be. Truly, I believe the demands of nursing a newborn and being up every couple hours during the night is more taxing, nutritionally speaking, but dang, fam, get those #napsandsnacks

Years later I still marvel at the honor of having worked with @therealpeterlindbergh. Hopefully I can again someday! One of my favorite pictures I’ve had published (for the @pirelli calendar) by one of my favorite photographers. It’s so rad and I’m so grateful that I also got to work with @herbritts and #bobrichardson while they were around. #tbt #2000

#tbt — NYC, a @dolcegabbana event. I loved this scarf so much. It was treasured! And lost. 💔 Also, wish me luck getting done the stuff I need to get done today. Before I get to go chat with @themichaelrosenbaum on @insideofyoupodcast. 👏🏼👏🏼

Mexico trip continues! What an interesting time to be here. Their general elections last Sunday elected not only president but literally — I think — thousands of public positions. And then the World Cup! And the border crisis. Meanwhile, everyone we’ve met has been lovely; we’ve been enjoying hanging out with other families and kids. Lots of love for 🇲🇽

These days with the melon, naps are realll appealing (and taken) so when inspiration strikes I have to jump on it. I think I got more exercise with Shane. Gotta get some good hikes in! #sevenmonths (34 weeks for those who have had babies and actually count in weeks!)

Some #tbt action but mostly just pictures of this little person who I love so much. She was born 2 years ago, about this time of night. (Happy “birth”-day to me, too!) There’s nothing better than cracking each other up. There’s nothing more gratifying than seeing her learn. There’s kind of nothing more satisfying than getting her to eat, especially if it’s something healthy. And there’s nothing more intoxicating than a good hug when she really nestles into my neck. Also, on a non-political note, extra prompted by these feelings for Shane, let’s #keepfamiliestogether. Utterly regardless of how we got here, and who did what, with recent surge of separated families, let’s work to reunite them. If you have children you know! Link in bio. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

Read below & act. 2300 children torn from their parents’ arms. Babies. #Repost @together.rising・・・Here’s what the executive order does & doesn’t do: The executive order stops the new bleeding. But it does not address the blood on their hands. The president has just signed an executive order reversing his own policy of mass family separation at the border. This executive order was signed because OF YOU. This administration took a bet that America had no more unifying non-negotiables – that there was nothing we wouldn’t tolerate – that we wouldn’t care enough to keep fighting. They lost that bet. We cared enough. When it came to the babies we, the people, came together and said: NOT THIS. We need to take a moment to acknowledge your victory. Okay that moment is over. Because this remains a national crisis and atrocity. This order does not change the President’s zero-tolerance regime. Every unauthorized border crossing (even those who may be seeking asylum legally) will continue to be treated as a federal crime. Families may be detained by indefinitely while the adults face federal prosecution. IT DOES NOTHING WITH RESPECT TO THE THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN ALREADY FORCIBLY REMOVED FROM THEIR FAMILIES through this barbaric policy. NOTHING ABOUT THEM. We have learned today that children have been flown all over the country – hundreds of miles from their parents, and authorities have said there is a high probability that many will never be reunited. We learned today that several of the for-profit companies that house unaccompanied children have histories of sexual misconduct and other abuse. ORPHANED & ABUSED BY OUR GOVERNMENT. TOGETHER RISING WILL NOT REST UNTIL THESE CHILDREN ARE BACK IN THEIR PARENTS’ ARMS. We will not forget about these thousands of terrified children. We will reunify these families. Every boots on the ground organization with which are in daily contact tells us this: These babies need advocates to help get them reunified with their families. We are going

My Dad! Cool as a cucumber, great sense of humor, musically gifted and exposed me and my brothers to a lot of great music...patient, hardworking, creative, and super smart. And this photo doesn’t do him justice! #happyfathersday

This guy shows her the world through his eyes, which I would wish upon anyone. The world as you see it has so much beauty in it and curiosity and playfulness and cool music and things to learn. Thanks for being the most considerate and loving person to do this with. Thanks for making us cooler! And congratulations on your upcoming double-fatherhood. ☺️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

This was going to be a #tbt to 2016 when the Shane bump first debuted, but then let’s focus on how 2006 @kerrywashington and Erika have these awesome pictures spanning the years! We aren’t close friends, just mutual admirers. She is a hard-working, incredibly caring kick ass lady. ❤️ #whoruntheworld

Ok, first of all, I’m a little further along then I let on. Bumpin for real. And secondly, I have never done this in my life. My friends practice acro-yoga and convinced me I’d be totally fine. They were right. Super fun, easier than it looks, and why not make a spectacle at the beach? #pregnant #AF

She’s really into peeing on the potty and then getting up and saying, “yayyy!” and clapping at it. And also singing the ABC’s over and over and saying, “yayyy!” and clapping after each “Next time won’t you sing with me?” which makes me cry. I can’t believe how happy it makes me.

Joelia strikes again! So, a reminder to cop a Red Nose and contribute to the motion. (Duane Reade + Walgreens carry them and also a chic new work-friendly version of a pin.) @rednosedayusa is a huge, joyous drive to fund SEVERAL brilliantly effective children’s charities. Sam (Joel/@samjaeger) and I went up to Seattle to see first-hand some of the awesome work of a nation-wide group called City Year that helps kids stay in school — in areas that statistically have higher drop-out rates. Video to come. And we visited the local Walgreens that is winning the race to sell the most noses in their region. It all culminates in a huge drive / night of fun on @nbc with a bunch of celebrities come together on May 24th to raise as celebrate that giving spirit. (You may have seen the episode of @ninjawarrior I got to participate in for last year’s Red Nose Day...madness and the most fun.) Sooo the noses are sparkly this year and the organizations will warm your dang heart. Get on it. #joelia ♥️ #rednoseday 🔴

One or two of the many times we’ve existed in the same dimension. ♥️ 🙌🏼 #tbt (I didn’t make these, but to whomever did, they’re pretty great. And I’m aware these aren’t the only ones.) P.S. Okay guys, no more choosing favorites please. We’ll both take the, “talented, gorgeous, etc.” comments. 😉

A private moment from the beginning of this relationship that’s still in its beginnings. Today I definitely focused on my gratitude for my mom, who did and does so much to teach me not THAT the seemingly impossible is possible, but HOW. She taught me to break the mountain down into step after step. I hope I can teach the same invaluable lesson. And now a moment of gratitude to my girl for swooping in and bringing her infectious joy and curiosity into our family, and for helping me learn how to be a mama. Happy Mother’s Day to all the teachers and the lovers and leaders who are helping wear that mother hat whether they even realize it or not. #mothersday P.S. See latest post from @yourzenmama, quoting incredible statistics from @unicef on the benefits of breastfeeding.

Guys. I’m smiling REAL hard. This is about two different days — first, I got to spend a whole 24 hours with Sam. (You know his name is Sam, right?) And second, it’s about @rednosedayusa which is why we went to Seattle for 24 hours. I’ll explain more. #joelia ♥️ #rednoseday 🔴

I’ll just say this: if you ever live with me you’ll discover I am the recycling enforcer. I will take sh*t out of your trash and re-sort it. Or I will carry it home with me if you won’t recycle it. It’s a good baseline for environmental responsibility for me! This beautiful 🌍 is like everything else — if you want it to remain, you have to contribute to it. I try to save energy and water and to bring my own bags to the grocery store and get closer to zero waste. Lots of car-less commuting, granted, mostly before 👶🏼. But! Even small things push in the right direction, right?? Mad love, 🌏! 💚💙 ♻️ #EarthDay ♻️ P.s. I just followed @greenmatters + @theearthorganization and their feeds are awesome! Sustainable tips and good news.
