Baby Kayla is here! Born on September 9, 2016

I haven’t written anything here for a while now and there’s a good reason for it…I had the baby! She was born on Friday 9/9 at the Mary Birch hospital here in San Diego. Her name is Kayla and she’s as healthy and beautiful as can be. I couldn’t be happier! Kayla made a big and quite unexpected entrance into this world, because she wasn’t due until the end of the month. I’d been having painful cramps for a couple of days, but when I went to see my doctor that Wednesday before she was born and he had told...

My baby bump at 36 weeks

Hi everyone! I’m here with another baby update! I’m 37 weeks pregnant now, which means that the baby is now full term. She is the size of a winter melon and theoretically I still have less than 3 weeks to go. A little voice inside of me is telling me that she’ll probably show up sooner… Honestly, I’m not quite ready yet, so I hope she’ll stay inside a little bit longer. πŸ˜€ These pictures were taken last week when my baby bump was 36 weeks! Also, click here to see pics of my first pregnancy when I was 36...

We celebrated our toddler’s 4th birthday at LEGOLAND California Resort!

This past Sunday it was finally the day! The day our baby boy turned 4 years old. Woohoo! I still can’t believe I’m the mom of a 4-year-old. Not that long ago I was holding a tiny, little newborn in my hands…where did the time go? Mason had been looking forward to his birthday for weeks. I’ve literally lost count of the amount of times I had to hear: ‘is it my birthday yet?’ πŸ˜€ For his birthday we went to LEGOLAND California Resort in Carlsbad. None of us had ever been there, so this seemed like a great opportunity....

Summer fun! My toddler is taking swim lessons at SafeSplash #IAmSafeSplash

One of our Summer activities has been going to the pool. There are multiple pools at our apartment complex that we’re gladly taking advantage of. Why not, right? My toddler loves to swim! If it were up to him, he would be in the pool literally every single day. And whenever we want to switch it up, there’s always the beach. There are so many nice beaches here in San Diego. It’s been almost a year that we moved (back) from Vegas to California and living by the coast is definitely something I appreciate. πŸ™‚ Being surrounded by water means...

My wedding anniversary makeup and 29 week baby bump

Happy humpday! We’re halfway through the week, yes! I’m already looking forward to the weekend. πŸ™‚ Hopefully it will be as good as last weekend: last Sunday my husband and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary and the fact that our baby bump is now 29 weeks old! Hard to believe that in about 11 weeks, we’ll have not 1 but 2 kids! It honestly STILL feels a little surreal… Babygirl is now 29 weeks! Celebrating our 7 year wedding anniversary (how handsome is my husband?!) On Sunday I wore ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in Mess Around (my hubby loves...

My 25 weeks baby bump! And all about yesterday’s makeup

Happy Monday! πŸ™‚ A while back I promised to post some baby bump shots, which I finally got around to doing. During my first pregnancy we took a lot of ‘progress’ pictures and I have to admit: with this baby we’ve been slacking a little bit. A big part of it was me not feeling all that well. I mean…who wants to take pictures if you’re feeling sick? Luckily, my nausea has calmed down a bit. Besides the heartburn, body aches and fatigue, I’m doing pretty well. I had my ‘glucose tolerance test’ the other day and the results were...

Mommy review: how to turn brush time into playtime with Firefly!

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a ‘mommy’ review, huh? Well, we’re still here! My toddler is doing great. He’s almost 4 years old now and a very happy, curious boy. Now that my baby bump is clearly showing, he’s been asking a lot more questions about the baby and I can tell that he’s looking forward to becoming a big brother! I’m now almost 25 weeks pregnant: the baby is the size of a soccer ball and is due at the end of September. To prepare our firstborn for his sister’s arrival, we’ve been talking a lot to him...

How having my son changed my makeup routine…Hello, Mommy Makeup!

Since I became a mommy a lot of things have changed. I could definitely do a separate post on it sharing all the ways in which my life has changed, if anybody is interested. There were major changes, but also a bunch of little things that just ‘aren’t the way they used to be’. One thing that is totally different for me now is my makeup routine. It sounds cliche, but it’s true: when you’re a mom, the time you have to make yourself look better in the morning diminishes quite a bit! There’s a whole other person now that...
