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?
I've found it a bit difficult to disassociate myself from just being a mom. 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
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?!
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
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 what pretty much sums it up is this: it is one of the hardest things that I have ever had to adjust to, however, it is the most rewarding. Let's start with the labor. I've NEVER felt pain like that in my entire life. I think I am still traumatized in all honesty.… Continue reading One Month In: My Review on Being a New Mom
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
"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
Crying about it, but not necessarily in that "I should've seen that coming" kind of way but in a way where I finally felt free from trying to be someone that I wasn't. About a year after that, I cut off the majority of my friends, which was one of the hardest things that I… Continue reading My Not-So-Great Teenage Years (Part 2)
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)
