First of all, I want to apologize to my followers for the time that’s gone between updates. This is my first blog post in December, which is a little rough. Rest assured that I am not losing interest in this blog at all—I actually have some really exciting plans for it for 2019! By way

Christmas is a very big holiday in my family. For as long as I can remember, my mom has gone above and beyond to make Christmas a magical time of year, and I want to do the same for my daughter. The reality, however, is that when Christmas hits this year, Babyface will be barely

Let’s be real: No matter how many books you read or vlogs you watch, the learning curve for a first-time parent is still steep. While you will ask plenty of questions of your own mother, your mother-in-law, your friends, and your pediatrician, there are other things you want to know the answer to without consulting

Happy 1-Month to my perfect little girl! I’m not sure if it feels more surreal that she’s already a month old, or that she’s only 1 month old. At times when I’m cuddling her on the couch and just enjoying how sweet and perfect she is, I feel like I just stepped out of the

With a high-risk pregnancy, I always knew a C-Section may be a necessity, but neither my doctor nor I wanted to go that route. I have Factor V Leiden Deficiency, a blood clotting disorder that makes major surgeries—like a C-Section—especially dangerous for me. Only after 55 hours of unsuccessful induction—causing contractions and labor pains but

After 55 hours of labor, Babyface was brought into the world via C-Section on October 19th, 2018, at 7:27 a.m. She was 21 ¼ inches long and weighed 7 lbs. 14 oz. at the time of her birth, though as is usual with babies, she has lost a bit of weight since then and we

Though I’ve been freelancing for a little over a year now and have made a pretty good name for myself, it’s no secret that when it comes to both blogging and vlogging, I’m a relative amateur. That’s okay! Everyone starts somewhere, and I, for one, relish the challenge of learning some new crafts. Like anyone

I previously did a video-type post featuring what’s in my daughter’s hospital go bag. Today, I’m adding what’s in my hospital go-bag and what’s in my husband’s go-bag for your viewing pleasure. Interested in seeing my YouTube updates (and watching me progress from definite amateur to something hopefully a little better)?
