I miss blogging

I have been away for a while trying to keep up with my New Years Resolution … some major de-stressing has been going on, I’m just enjoying life with my baby, hubby and little monster puppy (who is ironically called Angel … more about that later).

Of course some crazy does surface every once in a while … like today when I got upset because my hubby said that if I wanted to exercise so badly I should try to skip a pumping session … needless to say it upset me, I mean pumping becomes a religion  if you want to exclusively breastfeed your baby who would only take the bottle. You try your best to use your pump every two hours, otherwise all your hard work is lost when your milk supply goes down… Thank God again and again for my hands free pump ( I should really make time to write a review about that).

But other than that Life has been good, my bundle of joy is growing so fast, he had his first taste of baby cookies yesterday it was the cutest thing to watch! he would tap on the milk cup when he needed to wash it down.  Just seeing his little mouth moving in a chewing motion yesterday made my day and reminded me again that my baby is growing too fast! We have been introducing sign language recently but it seems like he established his own signs right around the same time. He finds a way to point and reach for the things he wants and its very exciting!

I’ve been meaning to write a post since I got my hands on my new Christmas gift … my Macbook Pro … I’ve been taking my time to get acquainted with it since I’m new to Mac, hence the delay in posting anything new. I didn’t realize how important blogging has become to me, its my outlet to the outside world, my  way to breath, to be myself, to get my thoughts down and make sense of my new life and my new role in this world. I was worried today that I have a few minutes to spare and I couldn’t think of something to write about, I do have some reviews that I would like to get out there but I wanted to post something more personal and I decided to just start typing and just like that I started to feel the tension in my shoulders disappear … I think this blogging thing is becoming a part of me and I have to say I LOVE it!

My very first blog post

Well here it goes my very first post! It’s overdue too…. I have been planning on starting my own blog for a few years now. Never took the initiative until today! I’m holding my baby and rocking him as he sleeps peacefully in my arms. It’s how I spend most of my days now specially that he is teething and getting a little more clingy than usual. Which is no problem since I’m an advocate for attachment parenting (life would be much easier when I get my balboa carrier in the mail) but as much as I like to spend my days (and nights) holding this precious bundle of joy I can’t help but feel that I need to do something besides sitting in my baby blue rocking chair … So here it goes my very first blog written on my husband’s I-pod touch while rocking my son to sleep
the purpose of my blog will be pure fun! Just a way for me to put my thoughts on paper and share My interests and the research resulting from them hoping that they might help someone looking for the same information on the way. Going to attempt putting baby Amir in his bed for the third time … fingers crossed….
