Does it Count Yet?

My daughter will be seven months this weekend, and she is pretty much attempting to make full blown conversations through her baby talk. Because the word April hears the most is "Hi," she has pretty much said it a few times. The only thing I wonder is, does that count as a first word? She… Continue reading Does it Count Yet?

“Me” Time, Much Needed Time

My daughter is always my first priority, however, I've noticed that I sometimes forget to take the time out of my day to just have some time to myself. Now that my daughter's sleeping schedule is consistent, I've pretty much made… Continue reading “Me” Time, Much Needed Time

Six Months Already?!

April 27, 2018. My daughter turned six months and I still cannot believe she came out of me. From a little kidney bean to a seven pound baby, I was so excited to meet her. So much so that the last month of my pregnancy, I wanted her out already. That was probably the longest… Continue reading Six Months Already?!

And This is Why Clothes Are a No No

Listen, I love shopping. It's a fun pastime and there's so much baby clothes to choose from. We stand there imagining what outfits in the store look best on our child and are so tempted to buy random things. But I think I'm going to refrain from doing it unless absolutely necessary. I cannot believe… Continue reading And This is Why Clothes Are a No No

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

My Little One is Active

In my earlier post, I talked a little bit about how my daughter does not let me sleep? Let me show you all why. You know those horror movies where some alien-type of being is in someone's stomach trying to take over the human species? I think that's the best way I can describe it.… Continue reading My Little One is Active

My Not-So-Great Teenage Years (Part 1)

It was the second year of college and I always felt so sad; physically present but not there mentally or emotionally. Was it depression? I had no idea, but it was a feeling that suffocated me. I thought it all started during my senior year of high school, however, I realized it started way before that.… Continue reading My Not-So-Great Teenage Years (Part 1)

To the Right (A Poem)

I heard a dream is a wish that your heart makes, But when you dream of a man, that's when your heart breaks. Because the one you dream is right and the live dude looks alike,  But it's too late to erase all that your heart takes. I mean, I never asked for someone who… Continue reading To the Right (A Poem)

Same Ol’ Thing (A Poem)

If it's not men lying,  it's women playing games. If deceit would be a creature,  that beast is one to tame.  I'm not sitting here and saying one sex is who to blame  Like we not guilty for committing the same Exact  Things get too disputable.  Lies make truth refutable,  Makes you turn away from… Continue reading Same Ol’ Thing (A Poem)
