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…)
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…)
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…)
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…)
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.
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 Angelcare movement monitor is one of those things I recommended in my can’t-live-without but optional baby items post.
As promised, here’s my review of the Angelcare movement monitor. (more…)
I was really excited because we’d made plans to spend the weekend down in Seattle this week.
We were going to take Chichi and do some shopping, visit Pike Place Market, maybe the aquarium. Hubby already requested day off from work, hotel is booked.
And then this happened.
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…)
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…)
