Hello there!!

So ive been gone for a couple of months and so much has happened. I am currently waiting for my computer to sync with my phone because there is so many pictures to share!(its done!) I am briefly going to summarize what has been going on.

Okay so Mr. Kason will be 1 this 29th. I can hardly believe that my little baby will be the BIG 1. He took his birthday pictures last month. You may be asking why? well the girl who takes all my pictures was already booked for the whole month of June. So I just went ahead an took them a month earlier! I will be posting some of his pictures once I get them.

Noah will be 6 in August. He gets out of school this Friday! He will also have like a little mini graduation this Thursday. He will be going to 1st grade! He is doing awesome. Him and Kason will be taking pictures together some time in August.

As you can tell I have 2 birthday, well actually 3 because Tee turns 22 on the 9th of this month! Not only that Fathers Day is coming up! So that means I can get CREATIVE. For Kasons pictures I made some of the props! We didn’t use 2 of them but I will be displaying them at his party! With that being said be prepared for som DIY posts! I enjoy watching DIY videos and reading about them as well so its only appropriate that I do some myself!

As far as me and Tee go we are good we hit some bumps not too long ago. But what couple doesn’t. Our relationship has always been a unique one (well I like to think so) I feel that we go trough the bad all at once to get to the good (eventually) We are a working process.

As far as my school goes I am still in school. I just finished 3 classes about a month ago. Can we say stressful! Um yes you can! I will be enrolling AGAIN this July. If all goes good I should graduate this October!! And that is my goal for this year I want to finish school and do what I love!

I have also started working out! I love it!!!!!! It takes so much stress off of me. I can just sweat it off basically. Im not going to the gym to loose weight I am just working on toning my body. My tummy area to be exact.

Anyways I will be posting some pictures of the props I made for Kasons pictures after I publish this post.

Bye.. well see you in a bit

6 Month Breastfeeding Update

So can you believe it has been 6 months? I can’t! 

Let me just say that it has been such a wonderful experience. Its been kind of hard but I love it.

Anyways let’s get to it. 

Kason eats every two-three hours I know maybe he should be eating every four hours or more but this works for us. I have been giving him solids now so sometimes he can go a little longer. My breast no longer get engorge like they use to (thank God) they look like they use to lol. 

When I’m at work I pump every 2-3 hours. I pump about 8 oz both combine. I was given a electric breast pump so I get most of my milk out. Before I was using a manual pump so it was a bit hard to get it out. My left breast gives me less milk when pumping but when Kason is latched on he gets out a lot more. My right one has always been my girl lol to her it does not matter if it’s the pump or Kason she does not discriminate! I have all my stash at my mothers house because she has a refrigerator outside (I forgot what it’s called) 

I’ve been able to eat spicy stuff without bothering Kason. I don’t eat it all the time. I try to stay away from sweets but snickers always call my name along with sodas. I however completely stay away from sodas! I stick to water if I want something sweet to drink I drink orange juice. I have recently started drinking V8 and I like it. I eat veggies a lot for some reason I don’t really eat fruit. I take vitamins as well.

I use to have this huge problem with finding the perfect nursing pads (who would have thought that would be one of my problems right) but I’ve narrowed them down to two, my ultimate favorite one is Well Beginnings Nursing Pads and my second favorite ones are from Lasinoh. I’ve tried Johnson’s, target brand, and this other one I forget the  name but they were not for me. The reason why I love those is because both of them stay in place they are not constantly moving around. The reason being that they have not just one sticky part but two so it really keeps them in place. I wear my regular bras the nurses bras to me were not worth it. 

initially my goal was just to breastfeeding for 6months but that has changed. I will continue to breastfeed him until he can drink whole milk. Now I know some people think it’s best to keep Breastfeeding even after they start to drink whole milk but that’s where I think I will stop unless something changes my kind that’s where I stand. 

I’ve gotten sick a couple of times but I’ve continues to breastfeed him he has gotten sick as well but not for long.

I was told by a couple of people that I would not be able to breastfeed him for long that I was just going to have to give it up. I believe it for a whole but thanks to a couple of people I kept going. It’s hard and painful at first but it gets better.

I think that’s all for this post  said it my last post wether you’re Breastfeeding or not just know that you are doing what you think is best. Don’t let other people tell you otherwise.

Kason’s 3 Month Update

Last time we went to the doctor he was 13 or 14 pounds

He smiles when he sees people period it does not matter if he knows you or not

He is a kicker!

He enjoys staring at people especially his brother, dad, and grandparents

HE GIGGLED FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!

He actually rolled over once but hasn’t done it since

He had his first apple

He loves to play with his toes and suck on his big toe

He has learned to suck on his thumb (cutest thing ever)

He still continues to scream and squeal

We have scream competitions (ofcourse im not actually screaming)

He “talks” way more now

I think he sings along now lol

He DISLIKES tummy time so much

He wore his first cloth diaper!

He actually stays up for maybe 3 hours

I have enjoyed watching him do all this things he is getting so big! Why do they have to grow up??

I felt like a pro

My mom kept taking pictures of me so i covered my eyes

Smile :)

Smile 🙂

Oh yeah I also tried my first frie ever! It was yummy so you're darn skippi I cried when my grandma took away because as she says I'm too small to eat it!

Lost Dogs!

So when i went to drop off Kason my mom was standing outside her house, she had a really weird look on her face. I got out and she said Tatis and Dawson got out. I told her well how long ago and she said she wasn’t sure. I got back in the car and told her to just go inside and that i would look for them.

Yeah they didn’t turn up. My dad even went looking for them and no luck.

I am so sad because we have had this dogs since they were just pups.

What upsets me even more is that Noah will ask for them as soon as he gets home from school :/ i already had to explain to him why Boo wasn’t home. I don’t know what I’m going to tell him when his best friend Dawson (shar-pei) isn’t home either….
