This was a very big week for BG2! Not onli has she been 4 months for a week now, even though it’s officially on Saturday, but BG2 finally got her head shaved. I know you’re wondering, what the?!?! Well, as per Asian tradition, we usually shave a baby’s head after a few months so that they get rid of all that hair while in the womb, and grow a new,… Read more »

Oh Crap, I’m 26 Now?!?!

On My Mind 3

This post is SO overdue, but I thought I’d update you all on how my birthday went this year. I don’t know if it was the stress from school or the new baby, or just the fact that I’m getting older, but I honestly could have just let this birthday pass me by. I really didn’t want to go anywhere or do anything, and since we’re on a budget, I… Read more »

Book Review: Fade by Lisa McMann

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★½

The 2nd book in the Dream Catcher series. I have to say that I enjoyed this book so much more than the first and it’s what kept me going and wanting to read the last book in the series. You get to see Janie and Cabel’s relationship develop more and feel their love for one another and how their lives intertwine. I definitely liked the plot of this book, catching… Read more »

The 3rd book in The Hunger Games trilogy. This book is like a frenzy of action, characters, excitement, sorrow, and mystery. The underlying question is “Who is really the bad guy in all of this?” and Katniss has to discover that on her own because she is the ultimate symbol of this revolution and when you finally see Katniss transform from this simple, clueless girl to a shell of a… Read more »

Project BG2 0

Wow! Lil’ girl is creeping towards 4 months! She is realli getting big so fast, I have to savor every minute of babyhood while it lasts, haha. Even though she’s getting older and “bigger” it still concerns me that she’s not eating more. She’s not gaining the weight that I want her to, but she’s not losing any either so it’s nothing major, just me being worried I guess. I… Read more »

Book Review: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Book Review: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

The 2nd book in The Hunger Games trilogy. After reading the first book I was eager to jump into this book and see the fate of Katniss and her love triangle with Peeta and Gale. Honestly, I was never really a big fan of Peeta. Yes, he loved her from the beginning, but I never really saw that love in the romantic sense. In fact, romance was definitely not a… Read more »

Well, the weeks keep flying by! BG2 is already 15 weeks, which means she’s rounding out the last week of her 3rd month. So amazing! I swear, this girl drives me crazy sometimes, but I can’t get enough of her. She’s definitely not your typical easy baby. She’s often fussy, loves to be held, and spits up A LOT! It takes forever and a day to get this girl to… Read more »
