Ivan’s 5 Year Update

Ivan James turned five this month! Ivan measured 3.28 feet tall and weighed 31.79 pounds. Hes a little guy like his mom. Ivan wears 3T clothes for the most part still, but is starting to get into some 4T. This fall we will probably have to size up in pants. Ivan’s favorite food is still […]

Noa’s 11 Month Update

Noa is just one month away from her big birthday! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t having a hard time with it. She’s getting so big. She’s basically running everywhere now. She loves peek-a-boo, chase games and music. She’s almost always happy and doesn’t really cry much at all. She still loves any […]

These past couple of weeks have been hard. Motherhood is so hard sometimes. I’m running on little sleep, and my patience bank is in the red. All of the kids have been trying me in their own ways. Work has been stressful with ever-changing COVID procedures too. I’m single parenting most of the time because […]

Chop Chop

Yesterday I chopped off my hair! I’ve wanted a pixie, or any short hair cut, for as long as I can remember. I’ve really wanted one since I entered into motherhood. Before quarantine, I had decided that I was finally going to take the plunge and do it. I got over my fear of looking […]

Noa’s 9 Month Update

Justice for George

Have you ever experienced racism? I am a young white female. I’ve never directly experienced racism, but my family has. My Latinos are technically white. They are white when you check the box on a piece of paper. There isn’t a brown option. Though they’re “white,” brown people still experience racism because of their ethnicity. […]

Noa’s 8 Month Update

Noa is eight months old! I can’t believe that her birthday will be upon us before we know it. Noa doesn’t have an appointment for another month so I don’t know how much she weighs right now. She is in 6 month onsies and I got all of Amalia’s old clothes out and Noa can […]

Captain’s Log Day 2,703

Spring has officially sprung here in this little place we call home. The weather has been hovering in the 60s with the occasional 80 degree day. We are outside every chance we can get. Every afternoon is spent outside. On my days off, we head to the lake to ride bikes and walk around the […]
