Review: Boon Squirt Spoon

Review: Boon Squirt Spoon

Ah, the solid food stage! A fun and challenging time for parents and babies alike. BG2 is 8 months old now and we started her on solid foods when she was about 4-5 months. At first it was just the Gerber Rice Cereal, then the Gerber baby food, and now we started making homemade baby food, a mix of rice powder, chicken broth, and veggies (a Vietnamese recipe/style that, thankfully,… Read more »

A year ago, Kina Grannis stole my heart with her hit song “Valentine”, such a sweet melody and a wonderful voice, I was an instant fan. Not only is she super talented, but she’s such a sweetheart, you’d be crazy not to pay attention to this girl!As if this MV wasn’t cute & unique enough! Now, she’s amazed me even more by taking part in this masterpiece of a music video… Read more »

Just Spread Gale on a Cracker for Me, Please!

Movies 2

We FINALLY get a glimpse of The Hunger Games movie. Yay! Definitely one of my favorite books, I was very eager to see how the movie industry would portray this epic series. From what I saw, they seem to be doing a pretty good job. My Reaction Wow! Just wow! That trailer sure stirred up a whole bunch of emotions for me. The sadness, the sacrifice, the action – love… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 36 – They Put Me In a Trash Bag

Project BG2, Week 36 – They Put Me In a Trash Bag

Project BG2 4

I knew it would happen. It’s around that stage where BG2 can’t sit still. Put that girl on any surface and she’ll start grabbing things,  squirming around, reaching for stuff, and just being a busy little bee. She’s definitely mastered the ability to transition from a sitting to a crawling position and has begun the “rocking back and forth” maneuver which usually prefaces crawling. So cute! But she is a lazy little… Read more »

Book Review: The Psychology of Twilight by E. David Klonsky & Alexis Black

Book Review: The Psychology of Twilight by E. David Klonsky & Alexis Black

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

I’m a true sucker for anything Twilight and when I heard about this book coming out, I had to check it out. Psychology has always been an intriguing topic for me and I know everyone wonders why people are so addicted to The Twilight Saga, so it was nice to have actual professionals kind of break it all down for you. There were some very interesting parts, like what people… Read more »

BABY FACTS – Live ’em, Love ’em, Laugh at ’em

BABY FACTS – Live ’em, Love ’em, Laugh at ’em

BG2, Parenting 5

I’ve come to realize quite a few facts about BG2, aged 8 months. I thought I’d share SOME of the many with you: Baby Fact #1: My baby drools like there’s a water hose in her mouth, but instead of spraying cool, refreshing water, it leaks an endless amount of saliva with no way to turn it off. We’ve resorted to layering her bibs and are always at the ready… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 35 – Be Careful! She Bites!

Project BG2 5

BG2 is 8 months old this week!!! How awesome is that?!?! Good & bad I suppose because she’s at that age where she’s learning to crawl, and by crawl I mean doing a 360 on her tummy or sliding herself backwards until she’s found her way under a table or bed. Bad, because she’s growing so fast! How can she be 8 months already?!?! I still remember Labor Day and… Read more »

*EDIT 6/22: I don’t really like the name of this feature anymore so I’m officially changing it to “Love This Cover!” :)* I’ll admit it. The first thing that always attracts to me any book is its cover. I know “you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover” and all that crap, but lets face it: People are visual creatures. If you give them something pretty and eye-catching, chances are… Read more »
