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="">

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!
