Four Months Old

You are 4 months old today! Wow, seriously, my lady, where is time going?

You are still as sweet as ever. You laugh quite a bit now and you really enjoy your big sister playing with you. We have to watch her because she thinks she is stronger than she is and likes to pick you up and carry you!


You babble so much and you are constantly chewing on your hands and anything else that you can get your hands on.


Your hair is so wild and out of control, it is so cute! You got your first “pony tail” this month. You are not very interested in tummy time or rolling… You are perfectly content in the bouncer or bumbo watching everybody around you.


You still spit up often, you bathe Daddy and me quite often! You once spit up right as I was kissing your lovely lips. Yum!


You are growing too fast, my little lumpia…. I am trying to live every moment and enjoy your most precious and fleeting times.

Love, Mama.



2 Months

Today, Granola, you turned two months old. Sometimes I feel like I am swimming against the current, trying to reach the unreachable goal of slowing down time. I want to smell your sweet, milky breath and your soft, baby scent forever. 2months9406

I dream an impossible dream of being able to hold your squishy self on my chest and feel your gentle steady breathing for eternity.


You started smiling this month and my heart burst with an uncontainable love every time you show your toothless grins. I have been on a mission to capture it to no avail.


Your chunky rolls are “coming in”, and I cannot wait to kiss them more and more. I am in love with your flat little nose bridge and your eyebrows.


As you become more aware of the world around you, we fall more and more for you.


You have completed my motherly love in an unimaginable way. I love you, you sweet little thing.


18 Months and Catch-up

The little Pumpkin will be two next month, I can’t believe it! Time has a way of quietly escaping our grasp and before we know it, we find ourselves looking back in amazement.

Almost a half a year ago, we celebrated her half birthday. Just The Pumpkin, her big sister and I. We made chocolate coconut flour cupcakes and enjoyed her one a half years of life.


The cupcakes were an experimentation of mine. They looked better than they tasted.

The Pumpkin seemed to enjoy them though.

So much has been going on in our lives that it’s hard to think of where to begin catching you up on it! We are impending a big move. We knew it was going to happen sometime, we just didn’t know the exact timing. Our rental is being foreclosed, so we have to find a new living space. It’s a bit overwhelming, trying to find an affordable house in a short amount of time, all while 30 weeks pregnant and planning a homebirth! We are trusting in the Lord for His provision and His perfect timing.
We also have not had an internet connection at our house for about a month now, which was one major contributing factor to my absence.

I don’t expect to be able to post regularly until we have moved, but I will try. I have been wanting to share about our first “real” camping trip we took a week ago! It was so much fun!
