This post is inspired by an article I recently read in British Vogue on Victoria Beckham and the letter she wrote to her 18 year old self (Link here). It made me think about me at 18 and the journey that life has brought me since, 10 years after.
This is my first entry for 2017 and I thought, what better way to start the year by reflecting on the past year and planning for the year ahead. As I am sitting here on my kitchen island, I look around me and I see so many blessings. First of all, my playful and happy baby boy, Alden, sitting down in his Bumbo seat, sucking and reaching out for his toys while watching Daniel the Tiger on the television.
I never thought I’d ever write a diaper review but since I’ve had my fair share of diapering, and after trying multiple brands out there, I have now found my favorite. I am not getting paid to write this (but when did i get paid for writing reviews anyways) – However, I just wanted to share my own unsolicited feedback to see if you all agree with me and honestly, just to share my experience.
I cannot believe that I haven’t given an update on Alden for nearly 2 months now! The last time I wrote one was when he turned 3 months! Truth is, we have been so incredibly busy with having events and guests coming to visit back to back. However, it has all been such a great pleasure to hang out with our families & friends that are near and dear to our hearts the last few weeks.
I can’t believe that this year went by in a whim! So many new and great things went by and I cannot be thankful enough for not just the love & laughter, but also for the tears as they have made me stronger in this pursuit to life. I’m really glad to share my life with a wonderful & loving partner, and now with our beautiful son- It seems like life cannot get any better than this and I hope we continue to flourish to the end of time.
When I was pregnant, I read a bunch of pregnancy books just to familiarize myself with this whole new world I’m about to be a part of and I came across a few stories that discuss motherhood and existing friendships. Almost all of them explained how everything is going to change; from existing friendships to new ones. I was blessed in my pregnancy to get the support from my close friends when I first told them the news, except for one. However, I am a firm believer that each individual has the right to their own opinion and it was up to me to take it or leave it, and I usually leave it.
I feel like I’ve been slacking these past few weeks. My house is not nearly as spotless as it usually is and to top it off, my hair is falling in chunks! Welcome to the glamorous postpartum life. I also feel like I am not doing this mom thing as great as other mothers are […]
Hi Loves, It feels like a Tuesday today since I worked from home yesterday because my mom was ill on Monday so she couldn’t take care of the baby. Funnily enough, if you follow me on Instagram, you can see that my brain was totally out of whack when I posted a #mcm post on a […]
Time doesn’t play. My baby boy is shy from being 4 months old in a week’s time. It felt like it was just yesterday I gave birth to him, it felt like it was yesterday I learned the ropes to breastfeeding, it felt like yesterday he would fall asleep on my chest.. Now, he is […]
Mommy is super overdue on this update but our little chunky is three months old! I am not sure how much he weighs officially now because there isn’t a wellness checkup this month but I am guessing he is about 15 pounds. That boy is getting super heavy! Alden has learned to track movements with […]
