Spur of the Moment – Project Vlogust

Spur of the Moment – Project Vlogust

Family 4

The Challenge: Vlog every day in the month of August. I’ve been wanting to do this for the longest time and I’ve finally decided to start vlogging with my family. I’m still unsure if I’ll upload it to my YouTube channel, which, if that’s the case, Idk if you can call it a vlog, but anyways… I really want to record more moments with the family so I can look… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 49 – Eating Less and Less

Project BG3: Week 49 – Eating Less and Less

BG3, Project BG3 0

Still no signs of walking yet with this girl. She still prefers to be held, especially by me, or else she’s cruising around the living room via the couch and coffee table. She doesn’t seem to like her walker much anymore for some reason. She’s been consistent with the “mama” and “dada” words and I can tell she knows which word refers to which person. Not really sure what will… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 48 – 11 Months Young!

BG3, Project BG3 0

ELEVEN months! Well, it looks like BG3 is breaking the trend of progressively earlier walking that I thought the girls were going to do. But, when I think about it, it honestly doesn’t matter. Since BG3 is my last baby, I’m just cherishing the “baby moments” while they last. Once they start walking they’ll be walking for the rest of their lives pretty much, so why not enjoy it while… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 47 – If You’re Happy & You Know It, Clap Your Hands

Project BG3: Week 47 – If You’re Happy & You Know It, Clap Your Hands

BG3, Project BG3 0

BG3 has mastered the art of hand-clapping now and it is adorable, of course. There’s this little Vietnamese rhyme that I always sing to her that involves clapping and she loves that song. Now whenever I sing it, she claps along happily. She also knows to clap whenever we say “Yayyyy!” We’re letting her eat a wider variety of food nowadays. Basically anything besides honey, nuts, and milk. She seems… Read more »

Let’s Discuss: The Chase

Let’s Discuss: The Chase

Discussions 5

You know what I miss? The chase. I miss reading a book where the actual focus is on a guy chasing after a girl he likes. And I’m not talking about the tried-and-true plot outline that practically every romance author goes for now. I miss the dating, the fun and excitement, the memories, and the good times. Is this something that people don’t care for in books nowadays? I can… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 46 – She Doesn’t Care for Sand

BG3, Project BG3 1

It was so amazing to be back with the family after 3 weeks. It also made me very happy that it didn’t take as long for the baby to warm up to me again. Usually when I leave for a period of time it takes about a day or so for her to cling to me again like she normally does. This time, it happened within a few hours. I… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 45 – Pacifier Preference

Project BG3: Week 45 – Pacifier Preference

BG3, Project BG3 4

We’ve been trying to switch her to a different type of pacifier lately, one that her sister was VERY fond of. But it seems BG3 has her own preference and is sticking to those pacifiers that hospitals give all babies at birth. I guess she’s used to the feel of it. It’s crazy that two out of three of my kids are addicted to pacifiers, as that was never a… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 44 – Standing Baby!

BG3, Project BG3 0

Sure, she wants to cross milestones and make me feel even worse for not being there by standing up on her own this week! BG3!!!!! Yes, she stood up unassisted this week. And for longer than a few seconds. She’s not steady and confident about it yet, obviously, but it shocked me that while she was watching her favorite show one morning she just got up and stood there. She… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 43 – The Climber

BG3, Project BG3 1

So, I think BG3 is going through an episode of teething again this week. She’s been pretty fussy and exhausted. It’s pretty hard for her to nap peacefully, especially if we’re not taking care of her during the day. It can’t be helped though and it’s good that she’s sleeping okay at night. It’s been a pretty long time since those two bottom teeth made their appearance and I have… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 42 – Nooooooo

Project BG3: Week 42 – Nooooooo

BG3, Project BG3 1

Why the title? BG3 has learned the cutest thing this week: How to shake her head “No”. Not a big thing, I know, but it totally surprised me when she did it a few times this week, and actually meant it. I tried to offer her water, head shake. I offered her another bite of food, head shake. Her dad tried to take her from me, head shake. That’s basically… Read more »
