You know that “pregnancy glow” that everyone raves about.
Well, I never got that. I didn’t get any beautiful, thick hair or glowing skin. My hair remained limp as before, and my complexion was terrible due to my horrid morning sickness. I looked quite ghastly, if I do say so myself.
Somehow, I got myself to believe that because I never reaped the hair benefits of pregnancy, that I wouldn’t be affected by post pregnancy hair loss. (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.

Apparently, this is a rather common condition due to the change in hormones after a baby’s birth. (more…)
So it’s been 6 months since I’ve been a mommy. I figured now is a good time to share with you my thoughts on which baby items I think is super useful and nice to have, but not essential.

So, here we go: (more…)
You know what’s funny? Baby logic.
Or rather, lack of.
Sometimes, I wish I could just tie/tape my baby to my boobs.

Today is day 8 of Chichi not pooping.
While I have to admit that it’s a lot easier to change pee diapers, this no pooping business is starting to freak me out. (more…)
Found some pretty good deals at Target today (in the baby clearance section)
Check it out!
A new bundle of joy comes with the expected sleepless nights, lots of dirty diapers and exhaustion. Here’s my top ten list of things that you may not expect to happen once the baby comes! (more…)
