Baby Steps with Baby Food

I've been a little hesitant with introducing my daughter to solids. It's my first time being a mom and I've been really trying to listen to my daughter's pediatrician. I was told to start feeding her cereal at four months. There's a few of them to choose from, so I stood in the baby food… Continue reading Baby Steps with Baby Food

April, The Little Faker

Let me tell you guys how my daughter is already playing with me. She's going to be just like her father. Anyway, this morning, I came to a realization that April purposely wakes me up. Because I don't automatically run to her when she starts crying, she knows that she won't get an instant reaction… Continue reading April, The Little Faker

Starting a Sleeping Schedule

I think this was the most important aspect for me when it came to adjusting to a little one in the house. I am infatuated with sleep. Before becoming a mom, I had to go to sleep for a full eight hours straight in order for me to feel well rested in the morning. After… Continue reading Starting a Sleeping Schedule

I think that's the best way I can describe it.… Continue reading My Little One is Active

The Conversation Starter

"Omg, you're so big!" "You're pregnant? Well it's clear as day now, but I had no idea." "Let me see your stomach. Oh you look big for seven months." Those are just a few of the very many comments I have received this past month. But who can blame them? I mean my daughter enters… Continue reading The Conversation Starter

Baby Shower Vibes

My baby shower is less than a month away, and now that I have all but 2 RSVPS, I cannot help but want to start buying all of my baby shower decorations. At first, I wanted to have a Monsters Inc themed baby shower (my boyfriend and I both love that movie), however when reviewing… Continue reading Baby Shower Vibes

Expecting? Stay Moisturized

Probably one of the first things that I thought about when I found out that I was pregnant was how I was going to bounce back after. I hope I'm not alone in this. I thought about all of the changes that my body was going to go through within the nine months, including the… Continue reading Expecting? Stay Moisturized

The Secret is Out!

I haven't posted in a while because I have been preparing myself to become a first time mom. I will officially be five months pregnant in three days and I am overjoyed, excited and nervous all at the same time. Is there a word for all of these  simultaneous emotions?  I think the most amazing… Continue reading The Secret is Out!
