Oh Santa

Thursday, December 7, 2017

A few days before I set date for pictures with Santa, I started to try to get Lucas to warm up to Santa. I took him to the mall to see him, we watched movies with him, I showed him his first picture with Santa. We even saw Santa at his Christmas Party, and at the Scenic Conway train.

Celebrating Thanksgiving with Christmas Cheer

If you asked me last year when we put up our Christmas tree, I’d say the day after Thanksgiving... no way we are decorating before Thanksgiving is over. This year, we decorated early, here’s why: we were going away for Thanksgiving weekend and wanted to come back to “Christmas” and this year felt different. It felt like we could and should celebrate Thanksgiving and being thankful with Christmas music and Christmas decor. 

A Toddler Clark Kent on Halloween 2017

Thursday, November 30, 2017

Another one I never got around to finishing... How adorable is our Clark Kent!? The best part about this costume is that everyone knew exactly who he was, so stinkin' cute. 

Baby Boy Nursery

Looking through some very weird and not very well put together posts, I came across this edit of Lucas' nursery before we actually started to "live" in it. He's 15 months now and it looks way different but I thought it would be nice to have on this corner of my internet space. 

When thinking about what I wanted Lucas' nursery to look like, I always thought green or gray on the walls, I never wanted blue, never mind a baby blue color. What ended up being on the walls? A baby blue color, and I actually love it. The first photos are from before Lucas was here. The room naturally looks a bit different now that he's actually here and we have had time to "live" in it and see what works and what doesn't. 

Lucas is O N E

Happy birthday to my big guy! You're O N E!! 

Lucas' First Haircut

Saturday, July 29, 2017

We were planning on waiting for Lucas to be the big O N E, to get him his first haircut, but the other day we went for it. A quick little trim. He had a piece of hair that would get in his face all the time. We got rid of that and trimmed around the ears. He looks A D O R A B L E!! 

You make me smile Lucas Oliver! How did I ever not know you? 

Let me know in he comments when you got your first haircut or your baby's first haircut. In our family it is "tradition" to wait until their first birthday. 

We have a video of Lucas' first haircut!

Stay at home mom

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

The days are long, but the years are short.. Lucas will be one next month! Seriously feeling so blessed and thankful to my husband for "bringing home the bacon". It's not an easy thing in today's world to live off of one income. We are making it work and I've been able to be home with both Emily and Lucas. 

Summer Mom Dress

Friday, July 14, 2017

Being able to play with my little guy is probably the most important thing to me when it comes to deciding what I'm going to wear for the day. It has to be comfortable and I have to be able to get down on the ground with him. He's 11 months tomorrow and he's definitely on the go, nothing stops him except when it's breastfeeding time. 

Baby not sleeping through the night...

Saturday, July 8, 2017

Last night was tough... I am trying to cut one of Lucas' feeding sessions (yes, he nurses a few times at night) and it's not going so well. To be honest, it doesn't bother me that he's not sleeping through the night like other babies his age. Yes, more sleep would be nice, but I'll never get this time back with him. So, I haven't made it a priority to "sleep train" him. 

Quiet Summer Mornings

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

There's something relaxing about quiet Summer mornings at home with a cup of coffee. Add a little coloring with your eight year old stepdaughter and she calls it quality time. 

I remember when I was a child I would read to myself in my bedroom for hours. When it came to coloring, I really loved coloring with my mom. Not only was she really good at coloring, I always felt like it was just her and I. Mostly because my brothers would be off playing video games or testing out some new moves from wrestling. The point is, it gave me a sweet feeling inside to color with my mom. 

Quick post just to remind everyone to take a step back and color!

On My First Mother's Day

Sunday, May 14, 2017

A Mother's First Mother's Day

Sunday, May 7, 2017

With Mother's Day around the corner and it being my very first Mother's Day, I am of course feeling all sorts of emotional and loving on my baby a little extra (if that's even possible). My entry into this motherhood journey, my son, Lucas. Not a day goes by that I don't think about how blessed and thankful I feel to have you. 

Almost nine months have gone by since you took that first breath and with it took mine away! Nine months of making me smile and cry, sometimes at the same time. Nine months of nourishing you, nine months of you loving breastfeeding. What a beautiful bond. Nine months of seeing your milestones, watching you grow, seeing all of your firsts. You're learning everyday. 

I love you son, thank you for making me a mother, thank you for making me your mother. 


**Thank you to my amazing husband who took these photos and thank you PinkBlush for sending me a few nursing friendly tops I could wear for all of the upcoming Mother's Day celebrations. I especially loved this one I wore over the weekend to a family BBQ because it's perfect for breastfeeding my son with the very convenient zipper on the front.

Baby's First Time On a Swing

Monday, April 3, 2017

I have been waiting for a nice day in Boston to take Lucas to the park.

I'm Rich.

Monday, March 27, 2017

These are the days, they say. My grandmother always says "estas rica" it means "you're rich" to moms who have young kids.

I never really got it until now that I have my Lucas! She means, we're rich in love, he wants to be held, you know exactly what he's doing, who he's with... one day, they grow up and they want to be on their own and eventually they do go out on their own... woah! That's scary to think about. 

Lucas is watching us all of the time now, and he's learning, I can see it. One specific example is when he sees me getting toys from the drawer under his crib, he's seen me pull it open and get the toys so many times now. He now does this on his own! It's amazing until he jams his fingers trying to close it back. 

He's also doing things, we call them mañas, these aren't necessarily good things haha! For the past week or so he's been spitting at us. We are thinking the vibration he makes with his lips while spitting might help him soothe his teething pains. Not sure though. Look at that face, I thank God for my healthy and happy baby everyday.

There's a new vlog on our channel, it's a chatty one! How was your weekend? What's new? Today, I'm linking up for Weekending with Biana! Happy Monday!! 


One Second Everyday in January

Friday, February 17, 2017

When I saw Macy posting these videos I knew I wanted to do the same. We already post vlog style videos at least three times a week, but this was such a cool idea. One second of every day! It would capture our month in a different way than dictating what we are doing. Here is our first month, don't forget to SUBSCRIBE to our channel by clicking on the red SUBSCRIBE button so you could keep watching our other videos!

Food Before One is Just For Fun

Thursday, February 16, 2017

With Lucas turning six months, I'm feeling more confident giving him more fresh foods to try! I'm not pushing him to eat as he is still nursing and that is and will hopefully continue to be his primary source of food.

Lucas Is Six Months

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Happy 6 months to my little guy! He is getting so active these days! He wants everything in his mouth and is not afraid to take it! We had his appointment today
