6 Weeks Later

^Scared I was going to drop her^ lol So, 6 weeks later after delivering baby Jacob and I’m alive and well lol. It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, adjusting to having a newborn at home and our new family dynamic but I feel things have settled a bit and we are adjusting well to our new normal. It’s getting easier to go out and enjoy life and do things outside of the house. Callie has adjusted well and is totally in love with Jacob. She kisses him all the time, baby talks him, and always wants to caress him. […]

Callie Turns 3!

Well, my little princess is officially 3 years old! I can’t believe it! She has grown so much and even though I miss her babyness and chubby legs I really am enjoying this stage. She talks so much and the things that come out of her mouth are hilarious. She is so independant and I love being able to just tell her to go get something or do something and she can do it on her own. The night of her official birthday is when it really hit me and I started getting teary eyed. The fact that we won’t […]

Big Girl Room

  Hi There!!! I have been wanting to switch Callie over to the guest room for the longest time now and I finally tackled the project and moved her over. I had taken before pictures but accidentally deleted them on the memory card :/ But just to give you an idea, this room before was a dark navy blue and had a queen bed in it. Callie’s baby room was getting a little small for her and honestly, ever since I switched her to a toddler bed she was waking up a lot in the middle of the night. I […]

Picking Strawberries

Shirt: TJMaxx, Pants: Forever 21 (Old), Sandals: Target, Sunglasses: TJMaxx, Callie’s Outfit: H&M, Callie’s Shoes: Target, Callie’s Bows: Shopmissa Note to self-Don’t wear white pants and sandals-lol! This past weekend we went strawberry picking for the first time! I had a friend stay with us for the weekend so we wanted to get out and do something fun and new. Washington farms has two locations and we actually went to both in the same day! Joshio stayed home studying so he couldn’t go with us (sad face-but I am beyond excited that he graduates in 2 weeks!) I thought the first […]

POTTY PARTY!

I’m excited to finally say that my sweet angel is officially potty trained!!!! This is a huge milestone for us both; I thought I would never get to this point since I had tried so many times in past and failed. I tried last summer when she was 18 months because I had seen online that there were some babies that learned early in age and I thought, “Well heck…why not mine?” Well that didn’t go over so well because of various reasons but the main one was because neither of us was ready. I tried two more times after […]

Just Like That

Just like that!   I remember being so worried on how to wean Callie off of things- Transferring her to a toddler bed, taking her sleep sack away, removing the paci…I would stress so much on what I was going to do and honestly would prepare my self for the worst nights ever.  I really had no clue how to transfer her to a toddler bed. I always read that once they start trying to climb out, that was a good time. The problem was that she always slept in a sleep sack that wouldn’t allow her to climb out-lol. […]

Callie’s 2!

Hi Everyone, It’s been awhile since I’ve shared on here so I wanted to spend some time catching up. I realized I didn’t share the video I made of Callie’s second birthday so here it is (below). I still can’t believe she’s two. Everyone calls them the terrible twos but honestly, that started earlier and ended early with Callie. Her “terrible twos” started  when she was about 18 months. She would through tantrums and have fits when she didn’t get what she wanted. We quickly and continuously corrected and disciplined her. She went through them for a couple of months […]

We Changed Our Minds

Hi Everyone! I wanted to share something that has been on my mind and I think will help someone out there… When I was pregnant with Callie I read soo many articles, like for real, I read everything I got from baby bump, everything I saw shared on FB on how to raise a child and I googled everything I had a question about. I learned a lot of things that helped me when she was born and her first year of life. There was one article in particular I remember reading (but don’t remember the link or name) where the […]

Birthday Planning

Hi! It’s been such a long time since I’ve actually written something. I’ve been so busy with a lot of other things. Life right now is a bit crazy and everyday is a balancing act. The other day I even decided to stay home and sleep! Callie had school and I stayed home and slept! Yes, I’m admitting it. I didn’t clean, wash clothes, run errands, work, or cook. I stayed home and bummed it out. I got up around 12 to get dress to go pick up Callie from school then we came home and we both took naps-haha! […]

Fall Fall Fall!

I was scrolling through my photos and realized that I hadn’t shared the fall mini session we did for Callie! I love everything about fall, the colors, the smells, the candles, the clothes, the trees and so on and so on. It’s a wonderful season 🙂 So I started working with a photographer to help promote and build his business. I do the marketing, scheduling and client interactions and he does the shooting. We offered these fall mini sessions and since we’re just starting and didn’t have any examples we needed to create some and who else to use as […]
