Happy 1st Birthday

Dear Jayce,

I can't believe you are officially a toddler. I will always remember the first moment I laid my eyes on your sweet face and whispered to you “Welcome home baby. We've waited so long to meet you”.  You were perfect in every way. From that moment I knew you’ll always have my unconditional love.  

The first month of motherhood was an adventure learning to change diaper, figuring out how to breastfeed you and trying to function with just 3-4 hours of sleep. I remember the first time I had to change your diaper without daddy and it was on backward. I laughed so hard when I found out. The first time I had to take you to your doctor’s appointment by myself and I couldn’t open the stroller but was too embarrassed to ask for help. I ended up carrying you inside.

This first year was exhausting yet so rewarding. Before you came into our lives, there was nothing that can wake me up in the wee hours of the night. Now a little movement from you and I would jump out of my bed to run to you. I remember the first time you slept through the night, I woke up multiple times to check on you. 

You've brought so much love and joy into our lives. You make everything in my life more meaningful. I never knew how much I can love until I met you.  Always know that you are also surrounded by so many people that love you. Daddy and I will always be here to guide and support you. We love you so very much, Jayce! Happy first birthday my love!

Thank you so much for visiting!

Summer Picnic

Summer time in the PNW is absolutely beautiful. Our goal for this summer is to do at least one outdoor activity every weekend. Jayce loves the outdoors so no matter how tired or busy we are, we make every effort to get out of the house every weekend.

We took advantage of the beautiful weather and had a family picnic at a nearby park a few weeks ago. We packed up our favorite snacks and drinks, and spent the evening sitting on the picnic blanket, eating our snacks and watching the sunset. Jayce loved watching the birds and rolling on the picnic blanket (we had another big blanket).

Fizzy drinks and fruits are my favorite things to drink and eat during summer. I’m addicted to LaCroix sparkling water. Berry is my all time favorite. They’re 100% natural, zero calorie, zero sugar and zero artificial sweeteners. I live on berries and cherries in the summer because they’re delicious and refreshing. I have hard time eating heavy food during summer because of the heat. With that being said, you’re probably wondering about that big bowl of fried chicken among the healthy light snacks. I love love fried chicken and that’s the one food I can never say no to. On our way to the park, we passed by our favorite chicken place and I just couldn’t resist.

Picnicking is my favorite thing to do during summer. This was our first family picnic and I have a feeling there’ll be more picnics this summer. What’s your favorite summer activity?

Winter Wonderland

 

These photos were taken during last month’s winter storm in Seattle. We woke up to more than 10 inches of snow. It was so beautiful outside that we couldn’t resist but to do an impromptu photo shoot. We don’t get snow in Seattle often so I was giddy with excitement to take Jayce to play outside. Let’s just say he wasn’t as excited about snow as I was. Nevertheless I love these first little moments with him.

Jayce is growing up so fast. He’ll be 7 months soon. He has been rolling over everywhere and grabbing everything he sees. His 2 bottom teeth are already out and oh boy, they’re sharp. He loves to smile and giggle. The best part about coming home is seeing how happy and excited he is to see me.

2016 RECAP

My favorite photo from our maternity photo shoot.

Visited San Francisco!

I was 7 months pregnant with Jayce here. It's amazing how the body heals after having a baby.

I had two baby showers. One with our family because we both have a huge family. Second one was a tea party theme with my close girlfriends. 

This was taken a week before Jayce's arrival. I miss being pregnant sometiems. 

We welcomed Jayce in August. He has brought so much joy and love to our lives. Everyday is an adventure for us. 

This "Moogle" character is from my husband's favorite video game Final Fantasy. We made this costume ourselves because we wanted Jayce's first Halloween to be special and memorable. This was our first sewing project. The costume is a little big on him but we're happy with how it turned out.

This Christmas was extra magical with Jayce. He loved all the sparkly ornaments on the Christmas tree. We helped open all his Christmas presents and he was more interested in the shinny wrapping papers than the presents. 

Our very first Santa photo. Jayce didn't cry but he wasn't very happy either. 

Happy New Year loves! 2016 was an incredible year for both me and Jimmy. We welcomed a healthy beautiful baby boy and it has been an exciting journey for us. We feel so blessed to have Jayce in our lives and he’s the best gift we could have ever asked for.

We’re excited for what 2017 has in store for us. I’m sure it’ll be an adventurous year for us. Thank you all so much for your love and continued support. It means so much to me!! Wishing you a safe and happy New Year!

I want to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. Holidays are my favorite time of the year and even more so this year because of Jayce. Our holiday gatherings are always a lot of fun because we’ve a big family. This year we’ll be at my cousin’s house. We live less than 10 minutes away which is pretty great because Jayce doesn’t sitting in a car seat for long. We do a potluck style so there’s always so many dishes to eat. I always like to try every single dish which is more than what my stomach can handle. That’s why I make sure to dress comfortably, a loose fit sweater like this one I’m wearing is perfect for hiding a full belly.

As you do your Black Friday shopping and early x-mas shopping, I know you’ll want to add a custom design phone case or laptop skin to your list. I recently got this beautiful marble phone case from CaseApp and I can’t get enough of it. The quality is great and it fits my phone like a glove. The custom design tool allows you to put your personal touches to your case or skin. If you don’t want to design it yourself, you can choose from a wide selection of pre-designed cases and skins. Use “BLACK25” to receive 25% off from your order. This code is valid from 11/24 to 11/27.
