Best moment this week: Max's Grandparents are in town and hopefully i get a lil me time to unwind and finish editing before the madness begins!
Worst moment this week: Going to doc appointments TWICE a week now. Last week when i had a regular routine ultrasound, they found out i had too much fluids around the baby and that he was pretty large..and earlier this week i went in for some testing and making sure baby was moving and checked again for fluids...bahhh... this pregnancy is VERY different from Max. I'm always anxious with this one cause of all the news they tell me...*sigh*
Miss anything: my body. i need it back. 
Movement: he's pretty lazy during the day and very active at night...does that mean we'll be up all night? dahhh!
Cravings: JUNK FOOD! but i can't have any...BOO!
Queasy or sick: nadaaa
Looking forward to: Labor. Kind of. I'm ready to pop him out and nervous to pop him out at the same time! I'm going to try giving birth without epidural this time around~ *YIKES*


Life according to my iPhone: June 2014

Half the year already gone. Geez. It's getting harder and harder to keep up with blogging! I feel like i'm just doing monthly summaries... 
I have about 5-6 weeks left till i get to hold Baby #2! The weather this summer hasn't been too bad. It's manageable. But it is starting to get humid... i'm not complaining tho~ I think i can handle it for a few more weeks and just stay indoors in the AC ;D We just got that shit replaced just in time! Can't believe how much my husband had to pay to replace the whole unit! On a 5 year old house! Good Lord! 

So June.. you've come and gone in a blink of an eye. 

Hello July!

Here's to more ice cream, pool dates, fireworks, baby shower, and NESTING!

Movement: Same as last week~ lots of tossing and turning!
Cravings: fruits, ice cream, and cereal
Queasy or sick: nadaaa
Looking forward to: Relaxing! I have a few more shoots to do and a lots to edit so i can't wait to get those out of the way and just try to relax and not worry about a thing.....except getting ready for baby boy and preparing Max!
My back aches. SO MUCH. I'm trying my best to keep active but not trying to push my limits...cause my back....it really does ache. My heat pad is my best friend right now. *sigh* Just a few more shoots till i take maternity leave..and i can't wait! I have one tomorrow afternoon and the rest of the day and weekend, i'm going to try and relax and even try to pamper my feet...Lord knows i need it. 


Happy weekend, folks! :D


Father's Day 2014

We had a nice lil outing to Fells Point to grab some hotdog and chili from Stuggy's (him, not me :T), watched Max chase around pigeons..lol! A quick walk towards the water to see the boats, pitstop to grab ice cream from Kilwins (i had the Maryland Mud...mmmmmm~), drove back home and took a nap...except for Max. He decided to skip his nap that whole weekend..ugh. I accidentally fell asleep and woke up to Max still yapping away and playing with his ABCs. Hehe. We hurried out the house and went to my baby sister's house for the 1st time and had a nice lil crab dinner with our dad!
It was such a nice lil weekend and spending time with my hubs and family...

Thanks Daddy for always working hard to support your girls. You've never really spent a lot of time with us cause all the free time you had, you spent working. Even on vacations, you'd work. I didn't understand back then. But i do now. And i really appreciate what you had to do to pay the bills, feed the family, made sure we were clothed, had enough to give us lunch money, and everything else you had to do to make everything work out with a single income. I don't know how you did it...but Thank You for all that you did for us.

And THANK YOU, Hubby, for doing the same for Max and I. We appreciate all the hard work you do to keep me home to raise our son..and now another one on the way. You have been the bestest dad to Max! You always step up and do your part without me ever having to ask you. Late nights, feedings, diapers, tantrums, and everything else... we know how lucky we are to have you in our life. I love seeing you as a father and can't wait to see you as a father to TWO boys :) I love you! <3 p="">


Week 31

How far along: 31 Week. 
Gender: BOY!
Weight gain: 30+ ? *YIKES*
Maternity clothes: Yep~ 
Stretch marks: Yes, but from my pregnancy with Max. So far no new ones!
Belly button in or out: Out. 
Sleep: YES!
Best moment this week: Getting some work done. I'm so backed up on editing!
Worst moment this week: RAIN! It's been a gloomy, lazy, tiring week!
Miss anything: I miss energy! lol. i'm feeling so sluggish lately~ Bahhh.
Movement: So much tossing and turning! I can tell he's going to run out of room real soon.. cause i can feel EVERYTHING!
Cravings: fruits, ice cream, and cereal
Queasy or sick: nadaaa
Looking forward to: Max's nap time! when he sleeps, i get in a hour of zzzzz's. :)

Man..I just realized i'll be 32 weeks in a couple days. Time is really flying! Baby boy will be here in no time! Hopefully i'll be ready! I keep looking back at my calendar and reviewing what i did and the past week seemed like a blur~~~ Good God!
And my weekly walks around the mall with Max seems to be slowly drifting away. We usually go in the morning before the stores open and i let him loose so he can burn off some energy and i  don't have to worry about him getting lost in the crowd! I get a good work out trying to keep up with him too, so i gotta make sure i keep it up and not get too lazy to go!
We also got to try out Max's new glider board recently! It attaches right onto our stroller and it only took me less than a min to put on! (which was awesome). At first he was like, "what the heck is this?" and as soon as he found his balance and got a hang of it, he LOVED it!
I like this configuration. I really don't want to spend extra money on a car seat adapter, so i thought this would work for us when i have baby #2 since Max doesn't sit in the seat as much anymore (cause he's too busy running around). So i was thinking of having baby # 2 in the seat while max rides on the glider if he wants me to push him. And when Max does gets tired or if i need a break and need to strap him down, i can put him in the seat and just wear baby #2! I have a 2nd seat but i don't think i'll need it till baby # 2 is a bit older. For now, on our walks, i think this will work for us! Or so i hope! :D We're still practicing! The only sucky part is i have to take my stroller organizer/cup holder off so that Max can stand on the glider board...where am i suppose to put my coffee? dah! And i do hit the board while i'm walking~ which kind of gets annoying but i'm going to try and adjust the board next time and see how that goes. So far i like it! 
Oh and i got the Baby Jogger City Select back in November when they were having a sale wit the 2nd seat included! Cause Baby Jogger was redesigning their logo and the new seat now have a different harness. Which is no big deal! I got it at a good price, so i'm happy! You can still find the 2013 models at a great price! But i don't think it'll come with a 2nd seat. Still, you'll be saving a lot! I loved my Uppababy Vista but the City Select just made sense for my everyday use and growing family! I'm happy with my decision..and wonder why i didn't go with the City Select from the start! I went through so many strollers! Dah. Lessoned learned!


Life according to my iPhone: May 2014

Good God! How is it June already? And where did half the year go? 
May has been amazing! And my baby has been on a learning streak! I couldn't be more proud of him! After so many days worry and stressing about his development, he's picking up thing real FAST! As soon as he turned 2, he learned the alphabets. Then numbers! He's even started counting up to 20 recently! I didn't even teach him~ We taught him 1-10 but nothing more than that! He also knows his shapes (square, triangle, circle, rectangle, oval, heart, diamond)! And just this past week and a half he picked up colors (red, orange, yellow, green, purple, blue, pink, black, and white)! And it literally took me 5 minutes to teach! It's amazing! I've now started to combine both colors and shapes/number/alphabets to the mix! Oh, and he's starting to put 2 words together! He still doesn't use his words on his own but i'm sure we'll get there soon! He's been chatting up a storm lately~ just babbling. And singing! I've noticed singing helps. He LOVES singing ABC~ lol. He skips a few letters here and there but he know the melody. It's so cute! I just want to remember all the times he's sitting in the cart at Target and just busting out his ABCs out loud! :)
But anyways, to recap May... We were busy visiting Grandma in VA and spent a few hours in VA beach (hated the water..guess the tides were too big for him and got scared), also spent my 1st Mother's day with her and went to church with her that day, my lil sister helped me shoot some maternity/family pics (thank you, thank you!), celebrated my niece, Chloe's 3rd birthday (time flies to damn fast~), Max got his 1st pair of Crocs (man~ they're pricey O.O), gave Max his 1st, well 2nd haircut..by me! His hair grows too fast and kids cut ain't cheap~ it adds up, so i gave it another go at it and i must say, i'm not too bad! Lol. I also had my glucose test and passed! And Max's favorite book this month is Little Lost Owl... we read it SOOOO many times! He's even memorized the story. And actually that's the book that helped him put 2 words together. It's about a little owl looking for his Mama. So he'll point at the animal and say "this a mama?" and i reply, "is that his mama?".. Max shakes his head and giggles, "Noooo~"I say "who is it?" And he'll point and say "it's a bear!" Or rabbit, etc. Very cute. I'd definitely add this book to your library! It's short, but fun, and has cute illustrations! 
I think that's about it! I'll try and keep up with blogging~ I just want to write down and keep track of everything this busy boy is getting into lately! 

Hey June, i'm ready for more learning and ice cream! Hehe!

Movement: Lots of squirming and rolling.. i think i can feel elbows and knees.. sometimes it gets uncomfortable when he moves around~
Cravings: fruit bars! since ice cream is fattening..lol

Week 28

How far along: 28 Week. Hello 3rd Trimester!
Gender: BOY!
Weight gain: Oy. I think 20 some pounds so far? 
Maternity clothes: Yep~ 
Stretch marks: Yes, but from my pregnancy with Max. So far no new ones!
Belly button in or out: Out. More like flat. 
Sleep: YES!
Best moment this week: Max all of a sudden can say 2 words together! I almost cried. Especially since i've been trying to get him to talk. He's taking lil baby steps, but at least he's trying!
Worst moment this week: Backaches. Everyone keeps telling me not to lift heavy thing and Max, but when you're a stay at home mom and running errands, you just can't help it...only cause no one else is around to help out. Meh.
Miss anything: I miss laying down on my tummy. I always sleep on my tummy. And i work best laying down on the floor with my laptop to work. Can't wait till i can do it again! lol
Movement: Lots of kicks and rolling! As each week goes by, he just keeps kicking harder and harder!
Cravings: lately it's been strawberries and cereal! and a few chocolate here and there ;)
Queasy or sick: nadaaa
Looking forward to: maternity leave! i scheduled myself to stop working after all the June birthdays! So i can't wait to slow down in July and not worry about working for a bit cause this belly is starting to get heavy! One more month left to work! Hopefully i can keep up! 
2 1/2 month to go till my lil Max is a BIG brother! Makes me all teary thinking about it. And worried at the same time. I really hope he'll adjust to his new baby brother in the house and taking away some of his mommy's time. Lately he's been attached to me. Maybe he senses change is coming? And i know a lot of moms always question if they can love another baby... But really... how do you share the love? Will it be instant? Of course i love baby #2. But will it be like how i love Max? Growing up my parents always seem to favor one or the other and i never want my babies to feel like that...EVER. I just hope i can them all the love they want :)
And just a random thought i had this morning... who is going to photograph the moment when my two boys meet? As a photographer...i can't help it. Especially since the hubs suck at taking pics. He doesn't like to document ANY moment. And if he does, it'll just be Max and my face cut off. Or me doing something stupid. -_- And then there is the money situation. I can't afford a photographer. Unless the hubs wanna give me a push present i can cherish forever? *hint hint* I'm usuall the one just taking everything.. but this time i want to relax and be IN the pics too! No matter how crappy i'll look. I just want to be documented too. I mean it's part of one of MY life changing moments too... Or maybe i'll have to get a camera that my sisters can use? I usually ask them to take some pics for me but they are so intimidated by my camera or some are just out of focus. Eh. I rather put my trust in a photographer that knows what they are doing and get the moments with out me nagging. lol. 
Yea... so that's just one of the 10000000000 things that's going through my head today.. ;P

Big Brother Tee: Carter's


I'm back!

I haven't been able to blog in awhile..pretty bummed about that. But i'm back now! Hopefully i can keep up! :)
So i'm 27 weeks now! A few backaches and sciatic pain here and there.. otherwise i'm good! Not looking forward to the 3rd trimester tho~ I hate feeling sleepy and tired...bahhhh! I need all the energy i can get to keep up with Max, photography sessions, editing, cleaning the house, and preparing for baby #2! Whew. 13 weeks to go! *i can do it. i can do it* 
Oh! And i took some maternity pics last week. I just asked my sister to take a few shots of me and my boys since it's so rare and hard to even take the time for photos... and i think it came out beautiful! We were running a little late to the location since i had to wait for my sister to get to my house from work.. we rushed out of the house and was chasing the light. As soon as we get there, it's a bit chilly and windy..and the light was just perfect! The wind was unexpected and a lil annoying but it added a special touch to the photos ;) 
I can't wait for Max to meet his little brother! Oh..i forgot, We're having a BOY! Yep. Another boy. No girl for me..again. LOL. Guess i gotta try again! ;D But boys are all i know so hopefully i can handle TWO! This shall be interesting... 
I have a name picked out too! But Hubs isn't 100% on it. But i don't care. I already picked it out! Hehe.   I won't share it till he makes his arrival. So tired of hearing other peoples opinion on he names i picked. UGH. Got a lil annoying. Oy. And i got lots of plans for the boys room! They're going to share rooms. And Max is going to get a big boy bed! Hopefully they both sleep in there together...cause i would like to have my bed back! We co-sleep with Max and literally sleeping on the edge while he's doing 360s between us. -_-
Okay. Enough jibberjabbers. I'm all over the place!
I'll be back to blog and keep up with it! :)

Dress: Old Navy // Cardigan: H&M
Shirt & Trousers: Zara // Shoes: Converse


10 minute glimpse of our afternoon

First we decided to chat it up on the stairs drinking our tea and milk (we both got a runny nose today..boo.)
I think i bored him out. He literally placed his head on my tummy and was knocked out instantly! Wish all nap time was that easy!
After finishing my tea on the stair with my baby napping away on my tummy, i finally got up and took him to his bed. I'm going to hold him as long as i can. He's so heavy but so cuddly. 

Love you, buddy! xoxo!

Looking forward to: more movement and ultrasound! 

Is it me or does my stomach seem to be getting higher? Maybe the myths are true? If you're having a girl, you carry higher? For boys, you carry lower? I definitely carried low with Max~ Or maybe i'm just over thinking cause i want a girl so bad. Man. I CAN'T wait for the ultrasound!! I really want to see the baby! And yes... I am tired...as you can tell from my photo x) But how adorable does Max look?! And trust me, this pic was not easy to get. 

Happy Weekend Everybody!


I got a baby in my belly and baby on my mind

I might have gone a lil baby crazy today. And yes, my anatomy scan is in 7 days. So no, i do not know the gender of my baby. I just couldn't help myself! Once i saw all these cute clothes at Gap in the sale section with additional 30% off... can you blame me? I mean, if it happens to be a boy~ all i have to do is return it. hehe. For some reason i've really been drawn to the mint, sea foam, tiffany's color! Maybe it's a sign? When i was pregnant with Max, i just had a feeling i was going to have a boy. And i gravitated towards a light blue color with him. Does that sound weird? And if this baby is a girl..i'm surprised i'm not looking at more pink stuff~ I don't know... but this color keeps calling my name! :P
Maybe i'll just call it out now... I think i'm going to have a GIRL! Even the girl at the register at the mall thought i was going to have a girl. She just randomly came out and said it~ maybe it's another sign?! I even got girl on the Chinese gender predictor. 

We shall find out soon! 7 days and counting!!! :D


Hello Spring Weather!

It's starting to feel like Spring! We've been having amazing weather since the weekend! Crazy to think it was just snowing and crazy cold last week! And others might have a problem adjusting to daylights saving, but i'm loving it! I've been waiting for the day we get more light and go out to play after max's nap! It's always dark when he wakes up so we just stay in and have nothing to do at home~ so happy i can take him outside now! He's happy too! He's been waiting for the day i let him out and run..when i opened the garage door he slowly stepped out to the driveway and looked back at me like "i can go and play"? type of look~ cause usually i say no since it's too cold out to play...hehe. And it's so nice w a l k i n g with him..just holding my hand. No stroller to depend on. Last year he wouldn't hold my hand and would just run (almost ran to the street too O.O). So i'd have to strap him in until we got to the playground.
We stayed at the playground for an hour. Lots of other kids in the neighborhood was out to play too! I guess it's a stay at home mom's paradise~ lol. It was finally good to be out and take in the nice weather~ more days like this please! :)

Queasy or sick: nadaaa
Looking forward to: More kicks! stronger ones! :)


Life according to my iPhone: February 2014

What a month February was. So much junk food and birthdays celebrated! One of them being Max's! He's 2! T W O?! *sigh* Those 2 precious years went by SO quick. I heard other moms say it, but now that i just celebrated my son's 2nd birthday...it really did! The newborn stage, feeding every 2-3 hours, late night feedings, wacky nap schedules....it all flies by. By 2 everything seems to seems more routine and you start to get a hang of things. Of course it comes with more challenges. Terrible twos, temper tantrums, bribes, messy house with toys e v e r y w h e r e. But the naps are better (2-3hr! Yes!), we're communicating better, and i know what he wants. He still doesn't talk yet tho. He says a few words but no sentences.. i'm not sure if i should freak out about that. Cause you know, i've been a worry wart about his development this whole time after he turned one. But somehow he seems to pick it up....just REALLY late. I'll give it a few more months and see if he starts to pick up more words and if not, i'll have to think about taking him to see the speech therapist again. Everyone is telling me not to worry tho..that he'll start talking when he's ready.. and this and that to try and assure me. So i'll try and keep it together for a lil while. Ack. And i'll post some of his birthday pics soon when i get the time to edit them~
*sigh* And now March. This winter has overstayed it's welcome. It snowed the other day (again) and
i'm just really looking forward to Spring! Hopefully by my birthday (spring baby..hehe) the weather will be a lil more nicer. Oh and daylights saving this weekend! We definitely need more daylight! :)

Only when i'm sitting down tho. And it's just a couple kicks~ OH~~how i've been waiting for those kicks! :))
Worst moment this week: Feeling fat? I feel like all the weigh goes everywhere except my tummy. boo.

Worst moment this week: Sciatica. UGH. Getting worse this week. So annoying and painful.
Miss anything: The sun. The warmth. Is it Spring yet??
Movement: I think i felt a few kicks!
Cravings: Not as hungry as i was in the 1st trimester. But crave anything that looks good! hehe.

And thanks Hubs....for taking a pic mid breathing..lol. my nose is all flared and everything! I was probably catching my breath after trying to get Max to stay still on the chair...whew! It's not easy. Boy won't stay still! Ah well...this was the best shot out of 1000000....
I'd recommend gifting or getting these alphabet/number shapes for toddlers! Max has so much fun with them when he takes his bath! :)


Time to nap...

Nap time? No Mommy, I don't feel like napping.

Queasy or sick: None.
Looking forward to: Feeling an actual flutter and kicks! I keep freaking out cause i don't feel like i'm pregnant without all the kicking cause i got a lot of that from Max. lol. It definitely reassured me that he was okay when i was pregnant with him.

And for Valentine's Day, I had a little fun with my sister's Cricut! Hehe. How cute is my lil heart breaker?! *sigh*
And I was craving some fruits this week! MMm~ but lil man ate most of my grapes and all of my blueberries! He's lucky he's cute!
And on Valentine's day we started the day at the PED office for Max's 2 year checkup! We didn't use the baby scale. We used a big boy one, where you stand up and get weighed AND measured! Made me cry a lil. lol. He's growing up so fast! Max weighed in at 34LBS. and 35INCHES. He even had blood drawn like a big boy...from the arm...that kind of freaked me out. And one shot to the thigh. He did good. :)
And my oh so romantic hubby got me a few goodies! He's not so great with surprises.. obviously if you leave the house on V-Day for no reason, I'll know what you're doing...haha.
He tries. And i love him for it! He even took me to the Korean restaurant for dinner! MMM. Man knows what Mama likes! ;D

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! 


Life according to my iPhone: January 2014

January already gone. This winter seems so longgg this year. And c o l d ! Max and I are getting restless and running out of ideas to do at home! We can't wait for warmer weather and fun activities outdoor! 
So far 2014 has been a blessing. With work and with Max. I know he's a little delayed in speech but he has slowly shown lots of improvements! Which i am very relieved about. And even tho he may be delayed in speech and communication, he is very good at sorting colors, shapes, letters, and matching! He's been surprising me lately and i LOVE it! :)
And can you believe my baby boy is turning 2?! I can't!

How far along: 12 Weeks
Gender: Don't know yet! But i have a strange feeling it's a girl *fingers crossed* hehe.
Weight gain: 2-3 lbs.
Maternity clothes: Oh yes! Ever since 5-6 weeks! (yikes!) This week i've definitely grown out of my non preggo pants.. because i was able to kind of zip it up last week!
Stretch marks: Yes, but from my pregnancy with Max.
Belly button in or out: In
Sleep: Ugh. I feel sleepy all the time but i can't seem to take a nap when Max does. I'm just tired and wide awake.
Best moment this week: Max has finally shown some interest in trying to talk on his own without me asking to try and say it!
Worst moment this week: My Husband is the worst when it comes to cleaning. He's actually been stressing me out the most so far. He should at least understand the kitchen will NOT be spotless cause you know..he has a tired, pregnant wife that also takes care of a toddler! *psh*
Miss anything: Coffee!! And drinking as much as i want! Oh and Subway. Hehe.
Movement: Nope! But i swear i can kind of faintly feel a few bumps here and there!
Cravings: Korean food and chocolate!
Queasy or sick: None. Just tired and lazy xD
Looking forward to: 2nd trimester and energy! I really need it!


Is it 2nd Trimester yet?

This pic was taken last week at 9 weeks. I don't know for sure how far along i am until tomorrow when i go see my OB. But i'm definitely ready for 2nd trimester! I don't have morning sickness or anything, but i do get really fatigue and i just need some energy back to keep up with max and work. So far this pregnancy is a bit different from Max's pregnancy. With Max, it was smooth sailing~ except towards the end i started getting sciatic pain. This one, I'm starting to get back pain and my sciatic pain is returning..ugh. Also my dreams are wacky and wakes me up EVERY morning..so i don't get a good night sleep anymore. Had a few things come up on my blood work which is giving me panic attacks.. Hopefully i'll feel a lil better talking to my OB tomorrow about one of my problems :T And once i find out how far along i am, i definitely want to start doing my weekly belly photos with Max! This will be a challenge but i WILL do it! And with my big girl camera! ;D
