Party Planning in February!

So I recently started to look into birthday themes for Kason’s first birthday. Its months away by the way……with that being said my Tee thinks im starting way to early. I on the other hand think im being super smart about it because Kason turns  1 on June and Noah turns 6 on August. So basically I will only have a month to plan Noahs. Well I have come to a conclusion why not plan ahead of time so everything just wont be done last minute. Now I am not getting anything yet. I just want to have a theme picked out and have an idea of the decorations that I am going to do and all that. Noah will be 6 so I will let him pick out the theme for his. I already have an idea of what he wants maybe ninja turtles and if he does pick that then I have the cutest idea for the balloons and goodie bags!!!Now if he chooses like say spiderman I may struggle. Kason is too little to pick out his theme so me being the awesome mom that I am I will be choosing for him. At first I was set on Mickey Mouse because I just know I can do so much with that theme. Then I thought about it everybody does Mickey Mouse and any other cartoon character. I want to do something different and cute. I went online and found so many ideas! So this is my list for Kasons themes well at least my top choices

  1. Balloons (like the movie Up) but instead of having the characters I can just make a bunch of balloons decorations
  2. Little Man (ties/bowties and mustaches!) Now this is my ultimate favorite!
  3. Owls (I have an obsession with owls) but I think this will be a bit tricky
  4. Prince Kason (basically a bunch of crowns)
  5. Blue (exactly what it sounds like just all blue decorations)

So this are my top 5 there is one problem well not such a problem but a big deal kind of Kason was born on my dads birthday and Tees birthday (I know this is like  so weird to me but it has convinced me that me and Tee are totally made for each other lol) so I will have to kind of convince my dad to make his birthday party if he is having one some other day. Kasons party falls on a Sunday and Noah’s on a Thursday which means I will be making his on Saturday.

I am so excited to plan the kids birthday party!!!!!!!!

what do you guys think? suggestions are welcome…

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.

On the bright side….

Well as yall know i am out of school amd i said i was going to start writting (more like typing) but guess what my computer crashed… yeah so i am using Noahs Nabi that i gave him for Christmas. Anyways to my surprise my mom got me a new laptop!!!!! And you may be asking yourself “why are you using Noahs Nabi?” weeelllll if you must know i still havent installed an antivirus on my laptop and i dont want to ruin it. I will be uploading pictures of our Christmas day! It was awesome. The kids got so many gifts, Kason was just interested in the wrapping paper and bows. I just recently made a trip to Ross (today actually) and bought some stuff for my restroom. As i said before i was going to start decorating my apartment because when we moved in we didvnt have much and we were just focused on getting things ready for Kasons arrival. I finally have the chance to decorate my house!!! I will start out with the bathroom then move myself to the living room and the kitchen and dinning room. Then Noahs room and finally my room. I will also be updating on mn my breastfeeding experience can you believe its almost half a year?!?! I cant. 

Anyways ill be typing soon hope you all had an amazing Christmas!
