My little cupid came to visit me on Valentines Day. Description of Photo Description of Photo Description of Photo and last but not least Description of Photo

I know I've been so quiet over here, but honestly I'm just tired. James isn't the greatest sleeper which in code mean (he sucks at sleeping!) So that means I'm not getting great rest over here. It's terrible. I'm reading a good book tho which I hope will help us! I know this too shall pass, I just wish it passed quicker and with more sleep involved!


Oreos:: Valentine's Day Edition

Description of Photo Valentine's Day is on Saturday so naturally Oreos had to come out with something red! I present to you Red Velvet Oreo cookies with cream cheese cream. These were very good, not too sweet but I did enjoy the cream cheese cream. The cookie itself just tasted a little different than a regular Oreo, you could tell there was extra flavor but not much. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I don't know what I was expecting but I really enjoyed them. I think I enjoyed the most because they were freeeeeeeeeee. My sister entered a giveaway to get a free pack of the limited edition cookies. She had completely forgotten she entered and then before they came in stores they were delivered to her house! Is there anything more thrilling than getting cookies delivered? I don't think so either!
Description of Photo Sidenote:: As you can see I've slowed down a bit on my challenge and the reason is I need to lose this baby weight! I suddenly got into a funk of just wanting at least 10 more pounds gone. I have a problem of having a lot of cookies in the house and not eating every single one. :(


rice cereal

I'm in no hurry with James. That little guy is the one in a hurry. We had his 6 month well baby check up a few days ago and I was so happy with the report the pediatrician gave us. James is on the smaller side but growing at a pace that's good for him. Our pediatrician was impressed with how on target James was in his development. I am too because I told myself I was going to push him like I did with Ardo and I was going to let James develop when he was ready with just guidance from me. It's probably a second child thing because James is right on target. We started Ardo on rice cereal probably the exact day he became 6 months but with James I was much more concerned with his breastmilk intake. So I've waited. But with the advice of his pediatrician iron fortified rice cereal is the first food added to his diet. I'll probably give him rice cereal for about a week or two and then add a veggie. I haven't decided which veggie but I have a feeling it will either be sweet potato or avocado. Oh wait avocado is a fruit isn't it? Well we might just start with a fruit then! Description of Photo


super bowl & baby polka dot

Description of Photo Yesterday was the Super Bowl. I'm not a huge fan of football. My sport is basketball and right now my team isn't doing so well, but nevertheless, that's my sport. Football...eh. Ardo is getting to the point where whenever we are anywhere he just wants to play. Jerry's family and my dad were all going to Jerry parents house for the Super Bowl we normally would go with Ardo and stay until it was over but this year I thought maybe I could take the boys to go play first, and then we could just join them after. I'm so glad we did. I took the boys to Baby Polka Dot in Paseo (Pasadena) with no restrictions. Do you ever feel as a parent, you say the word no about a billion times a day? I wanted a moment where he could just do whatever he wants and we could just be. My sisters came with me and I was able to play with Ardo just one on one while they watched James a little bit on the baby side of Baby Polka Dot. I always have James with me, I almost always have him in the ergo so it was a little freeing being able to carry Ardo and run and chase him. We left and joined everyone at the Super Bowl party in the 3rd quarter. It was perfect. Ardo was great, it was James that was giving me a hard time. He was fighting his sleep so as my mom says, he was a "bear". He hasn't been nursing great in public because he doesn't want to be covered and he doesn't understand I'd rather not show everything, he's also teething and he's 6 months, so its just everything. But when our baby bear falls asleep it's like nothing every happened isn't it? Can't wait for Super Bowl next year! Description of Photo Description of Photo
