What do 10 month old's eat?

Thursday, March 10, 2011
I dunno. But mine over here eats rice & beans!

We tried for a couple of months to give aaron baby food, but he just wouldn't eat it! He would only eat Gerber's apple, strawberry & banana and that's when the mood striked him. He loved loved Ella's kitchen but it constipated him. 

So Ped told us to just forgo the baby food and start giving him some of our food. I'm a Latina so my food is rice & beans baby, and this little guy loves it!!! We've added eggs, potatoes, oatmeal and a bunch of other fruits & veggies in the mix. Since he is doing so well on our food, I am thinking of transitions to whole milk soon. 

Has anyone transitioned their kids to whole milk before the 1 year mark?

A Challenge for Myself

Thursday, February 10, 2011
Lately I have been feeling discouraged & unmotivated! This is only when I come to work, I don't know if this is something that happens to all moms, or all first time moms, but even though aaron is 9 months, my mind & my heart are not here in the office with me. The only place I want to be is home with my baby. So, I keep searching for things that make me unhappy at the office, and things get negative fast. It is depressing! I am so lucky that my mom is able to watch aaron for me but at the same time, I consumed with jealousy that I am not with my son!

I never imagined myself as a stay at home mom, and it's not even something that is possible for our family at the moment, but I just want to be that mom that is home when my kids get home from school, that has time to sit and do homework & arts and crafts with them. At this point, it would be nice to not get home at 6-7 and not be too tired to cook a meal for my family!

I am surprised that I even feel this way! I never even knew if I wanted kids, aaron was a surprise, a wonderful surprise! but I never saw myself as the women I am becoming today. Motherhood has completely changed me! :)

Anyway, I have given this feeling to God in prayer! and I am challenging myself to only speak positive things that will motivate me! after all, I am working to be able to provide for my family so we can accomplish our goals!

I came across this verse this morning and it was perfect and exactly what I needed!

I am going to have a good day today! and I hope you do too!!! :)

My husband is a shoe collector! what is that?

Well he has over 200 pairs of mostly Nike Shoes: Jordan's, Lebron's, etc....
He has been starting a little collection for the little guy too and even though this habit annoys me sometimes, it is sooo cute to see their shoes together!


By the way I took that pic!!! on semi-manual mode!!! Manual Focus Baby!!! I am getting better at using my camera. I had the blinds all the way open to bring the sun in and that just made it easy! so note to self, let in all light for great pics!

8 months

Wednesday, January 26, 2011
He'll be 9 months next week, but 8 months for my lil guy was a glorious time! He celebrated his first Christmas AND New Years! He crawled and then learned to pull himself up to a standing position, he also got his first 2 bottom teeth at the beginning of his 8th month and his bottom two are now growing.
He also FINALLY said MAMA and learned to wave. It was wonderful to witness it all, I am so proud of my lil man! and so proud to be his mama!

Motherhood: My Seven Month Old Hurt My Feelings!

Wednesday, November 24, 2010
I had a meltdown after my 7 month old said his first word and it was NOT MAMA but dada!!!!!

It was silly, but with my husband just returning from a week long business trip, I was the only one waking up with an infant who still does not sleep thru the night. Waking up 2-3 times a night while working full time SUCKS!

Anyway, I just wanted to hear mama. So I balled my eyes out and told my 7 month old he hurt my feelings! Apparently he didn't care because after a couple hours he had the audacity to say that word again!

I mean I held you under my heart for 10 months, went thru 12 hours of labor only to be cut open to finally have you AND breastfed your little butt for almost 5 months, ME that was all ME!

The husband is  back home now, I have rested and I am now over it! :)

I love my munchkin!
