Baby girl is 1 years old now

Baby girl is 1 years old now

Baby girl turned a year on the 19th, and even tho my husband is against birthday parties because of religious beliefs, I told him we were doing it anyways. He’s always going to his friends birthday gatherings, so there’s no reason we can’t celebrate the birth of our daughter.

If his family knew tho, I’m pretty sure they’d all be upset, which is why I never posted any birthday pics on Facebook. But I can here since it’s my own personal outlet that they don’t really know about. And if they find out, oh well, I’m sorry. My religious beliefs are not the same. Although I believe in god, I think the whole non birthday celebration thing is silly. The reasoning behind it is because 2 celebrations of birthdays in the bible resulted in murder. Unfortunate, but that was a different time period…

Anyways, Arya’s birthday was good even though she was sick and not feeling up for it. We made it work though, and she always enjoys seeing her cousins who are close in age. We ended up bbq’n and enjoying the nice 80 degree weather that day.


She didn’t really want anything to do with the cupcake, but she was sick, so I’m assuming that partially had something to do with her dislike to try her sugary treat.

She still only has 6 teeth.

Is starting to say mama more frequently.

Is walking without us coaxing her, but still enjoys crawling.

She can now say kitty kitty. She recognizes them on TV and will randomly say kitty kitty really fast. It’s so cute!

She also says tickle tickle and will try to tickle us back.

She understands the word clap and will start clapping if I say it.

She also loves patty cake and loves grabbing my hands to make them clap.

She’s been extra clingy lately, not sure if it got worse cause she was sick or what. But I hear separation anxiety starts around this time. I literally can’t go to the bathroom without a freak out. Not sure why babies feel like we’re leaving them but I try to reassure her I’m not going anywhere. Lol its exhausting but part of motherhood.

Even though there are days where I need a break or two, I love this little baby to pieces.

My baby girl is growing up.. she’s so stinking cute

9 Months Old Update

We’ve got a crawler!

She’s been getting around for a while but she just recently (as in a week ago) started crawling forward and FAST, which means I now have to invest in baby gates, outlet plugs and some running shoes!

She’s 9 months now and started to get her 3rd tooth today. She already has 2 on the bottom and now getting 1 on the top. I ended up getting her the banana baby tooth brush so she’ll get used to the idea of brushing.



She actually liked letting me do it today, probably because it felt good on her tooth that’s popping through. My poor little hunny. BTW, while I’m on the topic of teeth, have you ever seen a child’s skull? It will give you nightmares or persuade you to be celibate. But since I already have a kid, it’s like pshh, that ain’t nothin. Love my little tooth face.


She’s said mama a couple times now but Dada is still her main words of choice.

She’s shaking her head no. Not sure where she got that from since we don’t do it to her. But hey, at least she does it when she doesn’t want anymore food. And she’ll do it when it’s bed time and she don’t want to fall asleep, so she’ll shake her head to stay awake. Smart creatures I tell you.

We’re still breastfeeding, but now adding in some goats milk since she don’t want any formula anymore since it tastes like crap. I don’t blame her, I’ve tasted it and agree. So she’ll have an additional 4-8oz of goats milk a day. And holy balls is it expensive! Almost $5 for a quart and $7.50 for the higher end brand.

She’s climbing up on her knees in an attempt to stand. She loves standing up since it makes her feel independent, but her coordination still isn’t 100% there yet, but I’m in no rush.

My babies growing and time is flying.


Love you to pieces Arya Mae.

I Wish The World Wasn’t So Full of Disease and Shitty People

These past few months have been an extremely hard time. My grandpa got lung cancer and ended up dying at the beginning of September. He went downhill pretty quickly but we don’t exactly know when he initially got it. Then my husband’s sister was diagnosed with liver cancer and ended up passing late September. A month before that his grandma passed and on Nov 1st around midnight, his niece was hit by a drunk driver which messed her up pretty badly. She was in the icu for a couple weeks and now she’s in the trauma unit recovering from surgery. Thankfully she survived and is making progress.

On the same night as her accident, my sisters husband decided to leave her for a young girl. It is seriously a shock to us all that he would act out this way considering they’ve been together for 9.5 years and married for 2 with 3 kids and she just found out she’s pregnant again.

I seriously don’t know how much depressing news I can take. This one angers me because we let him into our lives and treated him like family then he goes and does this to our loved one.

I get that people fall out of love all the time and go their separate ways but at least ask for a divorce before you go try to get into someone else’s pants and surely wear a damn condom so you don’t have 4 kids who are now going to be raised in a broken home. I’m upset she is pregnant so soon since she has an almost 9 month old and a 2 year old. So 3 kids under the age of 3…ugh. I seriously don’t know how she’s going to do it all by herself.

I can’t stress myself over it though. I’m already breaking out badly over all of this.

I wish the world wasn’t so full of disease and shitty people.

I would have really liked to get to know both my grandpa and sister in law much better. She was such a great person and didn’t deserve to leave earth this early.


Out on the Town: 5 Best Date Night Cities

Time to woo your special someone? Wherever you live, you’re bound to be able to plan a great night out, but some cities are more suited for romance than others. Where can you go when you want an unforgettable date in an unforgettable setting?

5 best date night cities

Honolulu, Hawaii

The very word “Hawaii” sparks ideas of picturesque sunsets and breathtaking landscapes, but Hawaii’s capital has even more to offer to couples looking for that perfect evening. If you’re downtown, you can head to the First Hawaiian Center and take in some beautiful art before you hop in the glass elevator and get a whole new perspective on the city.

If you’re in the mood for some entertainment, head to one of Oahu’s flavorful local theaters and watch a live show.

Seattle, Washington

For a fantastic date in Seattle, head to the waterfront. There, not only will you catch gorgeous views of the bay and the distant mountains, you’ll also have plenty to do. Browse through Pike Place Market and get something delicious and cheap to eat. Or spend a little more money and enjoy a romantic meal at a place like IL Bistro. After dinner, go for a ride on the Great Wheel, a Ferris wheel that is 175 feet tall.

New York, New York

New York has something for every kind of couple. If art is your thing, catch a Broadway show or take in the wonders of a museum. Like nature? Head to Central Park or the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Even in midtown Manhattan, you can find a couple of beautiful manmade waterfalls where you can enjoy the relaxing music of moving water. In the mood for some excitement? Head to a nightclub like the wild Finale, or get with the Bulgarian vibe at Mehanata.

Atlanta, Georgia

Go to Atlanta to experience the warm glow of Southern hospitality. The Atlanta Botanical Garden comprises more than 30 acres of outdoor beauty and contains gorgeous plant life and artful sculptures. You’ll even find a canopy walk that lets you get an overhead view of the garden.

After your stroll in the garden, go to the Four Seasons Atlanta, a five-diamond, five-star hotel with a fabulous restaurant. Sure, it might cost you some money, but it will make for an evening of romantic luxury that neither you nor your date will soon forget.

Boulder, Colorado

Not only is Boulder one of the best places to live, it is also one of the most romantic. Go to Rocky Mountain National Park, where the mountain lakes and wildlife will have both of you reaching for your cameras. Go hiking and engage in fascinating conversations as you enjoy all that nature has to offer. If you would rather stay indoors, go dine on a fine meal at Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse, an ornate restaurant where they serve mouth-watering Persian dishes.

Whether you are fresh on the dating scene or you just like to take your loved one out for a special evening once in a while, planning an ideal evening out is often challenging. It is easier, however, if you live in a city that is suited for great dates.

I Don’t Know if I Can Watch the #Bachelorette Again…

The only real reason why I started watching this bachelorette season (late, might I add) is that I had nothing better to do or watch on TV. I figured why the hell not… it’s a time killer and I love reality shows. Although this season makes me want to stop watching it altogether. I might watch this coming up Bachelor if Chris (the farmer) is starring, because he’s just a real genuine person.


I am not a believer in love at first sight or love after 10 weeks. I never once said I love you to my now husband until a year after we were dating. It’s not a word I take lightly and it’s something that I was scared and nervous to say and wanted to make sure it was real and right, not only for me, but for him.


When I watched the after show of the finale it made me realize just how fake and obnoxious of a person Andi Dorfman really is. She’s not sweet, innocent, down to earth, nothing. Her final words at the end of the finale when she chose Josh were “I Love You and I have loved you ever since the first time I laid eyes on you”. Gag me with a spoon. Then on the after show, Nick who she dumped had questions… the real kicker is she wouldn’t talk to him outside of the show and he publicly said if you didn’t love me at all then why did you make love to me? A complete and legit question. This is what made me despise her. If she knew she loved Josh from the very first moment he stepped out of the limo, then why did she take Nick back to the suite and have sex with him? Obviously she’s a damn ho bag who wanted to test the goods so to speak before she took the plunge into married ville. Maybe she needed another notch down on her belt? Maybe sleeping with Nick was the final deciding factor? Was he not good enough in bed? Was his package not big enough for her? Either way, she’s a phony and a ho, so I guess she works well with Josh.
