Back at the hospital when Adeline was only a day old, the nurse told me that my baby didn’t like her bath at all. That made me feel a little challenged and a little anxious because as a first time mom, the thought of giving my newborn a bath was already daunting so I couldn’t imagine giving a very fussy baby a bath! But a couple weeks after, as soon as her belly button’s all good, my husband and I gave her a proper bath and was pleasantly surprised at how much she loved it! I wonder what the nurses did to her at the hospital. 🤔Read More
If you're a first time mom, or a mom in general, you know the struggle of finding the perfect diaper bag for baby.
There are so many options out there, how can you choose?! Most of the time, we choose the bag that will benefit baby the most ⏤ size, style, color, these all come into play.

No matter how many books or articles you read on babies, child birth, and everything in between, nothing really prepares you for when it actually happens.
The morning of July 12th, stomach pain woke me up, and I immediately thought, "this is it! it is my due date today after all..." Boy was I so wrong.Read More
A few weeks ago, Jorge and I woke up really early for our maternity shoot, and I love how the photos turned out!
We originally planned to shoot the photos at a different location, but the place we had in mind didn't open until 8AM, and we were rooting for a "golden hour" shoot. Because we were already out by 6AM, and there was no way we were going to wait for 8AM because the light will be so different, Jorge took us to a trail where he used to run regularly. It was literally 5 minutes away from our house. Though it wasn't the original location for the vision we had for this shoot, it did not disappoint. :) Enjoy the photos!Read More
We are officially full term!
I cannot believe how quickly time flew by. I cannot believe we get to see our sweet little girl this month. I cannot believe we're almost at the end of my first pregnancy journey. I cannot believe this! The past few weeks have been dedicated to preparation of Baby Suarez's arrival, and is the reason why the bumpdates didn't come as regularly as I had originally planned.Read More
If you are a first time parent, picking the right baby registry for you can be a little daunting.
There's a lot of things to consider, and to be quite honest, I registered at at least 3 websites! YIKES! But I eventually stuck to one, and I'm going to share with you the reasons why I chose it, and share the products I received in my free welcome box.Read More
On May 19, 2018, we had our baby shower and it was the sweetest thing ever!

It's been a hot minute since I updated you on the bump. I am nearing the end of my pregnancy road, and it has been an exciting yet exhausting ride to say the least.
Jorge and I are doing our best to get everything ready for Baby Suarez's arrival, and that's one of the biggest reasons why I've been a little quiet on here. I honestly don't know how the bigger mommy bloggers do it! This past month, I've just felt like a huge cow that can barely move. . .Read More
I'm almost at 32 weeks as I'm writing this blog post, and I know, we are really getting close to meeting our baby girl yet we still have a lot of things we need to get for her arrival. My baby shower is happening a few days from today, and though I'm sure we'll be receiving a lot of gifts from friends, I still wanted to share the top 6 things that I really really REALLY want to get, but not necessarily "need".Read More
I officially said "hello" to my third trimester last week! WOOTWOOT!
It feels like it was only yesterday when I saw those two lines that screamed "you're pregnant", and now, we're more or less three months away to meeting our little angel. I cannot believe how time has quickly flown by, but I am extremely excited to hold Baby Suarez. We still don't have a name for her. 😂
Overall, I feel good. But whenever I get asked how I'm doing, I always answer withRead More
Before we get into my 26 week bumpdate, I wanted to share my not-so pleasant visit to the ER a few nights ago.
Monday night, I experienced the worst chest pain ever. I wasn't exactly sure what I was feeling, but I just assumed it was heartburn. So I let it be, hoping it would just eventually go away. But a couple hours have gone by, the pain has just worsened, and for some reason, my arms started to feel limp and I had trouble breathing. That's when I felt a little alarmed and told Jorge...Read More
