It Feels Much Longer, But The Calendar Says Layla Is Two Months Old!

Layla is 2 months! Everyone says they grow up fast, and now I see why. She has changed so much already. Her hair is lighter, her eyes bigger, and she has learned how to smile! Which, I must say is the best thing ever. She has also learned that she has hands, and that they … Read More

Layla’s 1st Valentine’s Day

Layla’s 1st Valentine’s Day

My husband asked Layla to be his Valentine. I’m pretty sure I heard a yes, or some sort of squirrel noise, come out of her. To commemorate this event, I asked my husband to do a quick photo shoot with Layla this morning. He said no. Why would he say no? Well last night my … Read More

Was I Just Weight Shamed By My Doctor?

Hello! I did not mean to abandon my blog, but taking care of a baby, (especially when solely breastfeeding), is crazy time consuming and exhausting!

Meet Layla!

Meet Layla. The love of my life. The hungriest human I know. And the youngest and cutest model ever. I wanted to do some newborn photos of her, but didn’t want to spend a lot of money.

Well Hello Hormones!

Hormones. A word that has been prevalent in my vocabulary for about 10 months now. I am lucky though. I don’t have huge PMS mood swings or cramps, and I really didn’t see much of a shift in my mood when I was pregnant. Now, there were a few times that I may have been … Read More

Chicken Adobo Enchiladas

I love this time of year! It’s crock pot season! For this recipe, I am going to cook the chicken in the slow cooker first. Why? Because I love cooking chicken in the slow cooker!
