The 1 year old

Like almost every mom out there, I couldn’t believe how fast time just FLEW by and now my precious little Chichi is 1 year old.

The entire week I had been so busy planning a birthday party, that the realization that SHE IS NOW 1!! didn’t hit me until a few days after. (more…)

First date night since baby

So lately, I’ve been thinking about how to best get baby and grandma to hang out more so that things would be easier when I go back to work.

While they do see each other every few days, they never get the opportunity to REALLY hang out.

It’s been a while since my mom’s taken care of a baby, so I thought, what better way to get them to get to get really know each other than a date night for me and hubby! (more…)

Phantom baby kicks

Chichi’s almost 9 months old now.  I guess now’s as good of a time as any to tell you about something that’s as weird as it sounds- Phantom baby kicks. (more…)

The introduction of solid foods

So about a month ago, I decided to start Chichi on solids.

I’d actually started about 2 months ago, but after a few tries, decided to delay it for a few more weeks because I didn’t think she was quite ready yet. She still kept thrusting her tongue out and pushing everything out. (more…)

Mother’s Day 2014

So, yesterday was Mother’s day-Happy belated Mother’s day to mothers everywhere!

I spent the day with my parents and my grandma who came to visit this month. Its such a blessing to have four generations dine together on Mother’s day.


Sleep Regression

It would appear that I am currently right smack in the middle of the 6/7 month sleep regression.

Chichi had previously been really good at sleeping all night.


The different types of baby boogers

Honestly, I never thought I would be one of those people to find something as gross as digging for gold so entertaining.

One reason for that is just…there are so many different types. Plus, it’s almost like a game. Am I gonna get it? Am I not? Wait…almost….ALMOST….GOT IT!…oh…no lost it again.

Besides, there’s the instant gratification when you finally get that particularly stubborn booger out of your baby’s nose and they can suddenly breath better.

I have even begun to name the different kinds of boogers I have been digging up in Chichi’s little nose. So…here we go:

1. The Not-worth-mentioning: So I’m not going to mention it. This is the boring typical booger. Nothing special. Moving on.

2. The Bomb: This one is pretty self explanatory. (more…)

Baby Acne

Chichi was born with flawless skin. Then, some time around the 2-3 month mark, she suddenly developed a bad case of baby acne across her forehead and eyebrows. It was like baby puberty.

Apparently, this is a rather common condition due to the change in hormones after a baby’s birth. (more…)
