I love being a mom, but sometimes that means everything I do is for my children and I don't spend a lot of time on myself. I'm long over due for a hair cut and finally was able to break away friday night for an hour to myself. I love getting my hair cut, having my hair washed and styled by someone else make me feel so pampered, it was like therapy to me! The one thing I love about getting my hair cut is that its such a big change in my apperance and makes me feel like a new person! I don't like to have my picture taken but I thought I'd do it for something to blog about so I also added a picture of my girlies to end on a good note haha
Having a baby has its tough moments adjusting to a new routine and all. I think the hardest thing to adjust to is making dinner again! LOL I've been spoiled the last three weeks, we've had meals brought into us by my family, Jethro's family, friends and ward members! Its been so nice to have home cooked meals that I didn't have to slave over LOL but now we have to adjust to cooking again. I want to thank everybody who has been so generous and kind to bring meals to us and helped us out after I had the baby!! We had a lot of yummy meals and a few new dishes that were surprisingly good, so I'm asking you, as my friend Angie would say, BLEADERS (blog readers), to tell me what your favorite meal was that you cooked this past week, I need new menu ideas and healthy ones too. If you have time to post the recipe please do, I want main dishes, side dishes and dessert details even if its just as simple as adding frozen veggies to a pot of rice please share I need all the help I can get and the simpler the better LOL!!
I love this picture! When we first found out I was pregnant we were hoping for a boy, but I'm soooo glad we got another girl! I'm so excited for Ana to have a little sister, I think these two are gonna be best friends. Ana has just grown up so fast since having Penina, she is such a good helper and is always there by Penina's side when she is crying. Ana loves to sing to her, she sings "Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam" and "I Am A Child Of God". Penina is starting to focus more on sounds around her and will turn her head and look at Ana while she sings. Its the cutest thing!! I'm so in love with my two girls, I feel so blessed my heart feels like its going to explode when I look at my two girlies!!
This post is for those of you who have kids in diapers, no matter what age but most especially new babys. I have found the most incredible diaper, Pampers Swaddlers! If you have never tried these I HIGHLY recommend you TRY them. They are the most amazing diapers. They have a mesh lining that keeps the poop away from your babys skin and it makes it sooooo much easier to clean them up! I love this most especially for new babies since you have to change them every hour or two and sometimes 3 times in 10 minutes. You just get your baby changed and their clothes back on and they poop again!! I love these diapers, I haven't yet compared prices with the other diapers but I assume since they are Pampers they cost more then the other diapers BUT its sooo worth it for now until she is a little older and won't require so many diaper changes!!!
