As a “Work at Home” Mom – I find myself creating opportunities to tire out the kids. Milena naps for 15 minutes. Alexandria has no idea what the word “Nap” means. Jack needs a good 20 minutes of running from one side of the yard to the other so he leaves the kids alone. I’m […]
Apparently Jack loves bubbles too.
Santa brought us a bubble machine. My secret Mom Motive for that request from the old fat man? The ability to work outside with an entertained 3 year old. I had ZERO idea that my crazy pup would also find it supremely satisfying as well. Just be honest with your inner self for a sec […]
It’s been a great year! Thanks for being a part of it.
It’s been a great year! Thanks for being a part of it. Oh has it? That’s what everyone seems to think – thanks to the automated “Year in Review” Facebook has put together this year. It’s been a crazy year. An incredible year. A stressful year. An emotional year. A challenging year. This time last […]
Getting ready for the Holidays
This holiday season has been such a whirlwind – I don’t even have the words to describe how chaotic these last few weeks have been. I’ve somehow been able to capture a few snapshots of the family time we’ve had – and here are some of my faves. This is the most wonderful time of […]
It’s not even Noon yet.
5:00am *Screams from the Baby Monitor* It’s my turn tonight to get up and cuddle the Milebear when it’s time… It’s time. For the Fourth time since 1am – Because 4 month sleep regression – YAY! Papi has to wake me up because I never hear the baby – and I stumble out of bed. […]
Life is Art.
I would have never imagined that all of the events of my life would lead me to where I am today. Sitting at this dining room table, editing a beautiful family portrait, listening to my “Fiance” talk business on the phone. Following my dreams of working a Photographer – capturing images that mean the most to […]
Time with Chech | Flamingo Road Nursery Pumpkin Patch
I got so lucky today. I got to spend some time with Alexandria while Little Baby Milé took a cozy nap in her stroller. We explored the Flamingo Road Nursery and Farmers Market, hunting for butterflies and counting pumpkins. It was so nice to feel like myself again, and enjoy Chech’s little imagination without a […]
It makes me so happy when Holiday “months” arrive – because that means fun outfits… and more photos to add to the Iglesias Family Yearbook that I’ve decided I’m making every year. I figure if I do it little by little every month, it makes it easier when it’s time to get it printed! Today […]
September via iPhone
September has come and gone. Now, we’re surrounded by Pumpkin everything and we pray for cooler weather. It’s a funny thing, to have the intense need for what you cannot easily have. I wish for temperatures in the 60s and 70s and up north they yearn for the warmth of the 80s… You always want […]
Mrs. Bright Side
So it’s 11pm. Milena’s long stretch of sleep is 8:30pm to about 1:30am… I’m so going to regret staying up to write this – it’s not even funny. But it is what it is I guess. I’m feeling inspired tonight – by so many things in my life. I’m inspired by my amazing hubs – […]
Toddler Stress Relief
Because sometimes, a little cardio is all you need to calm the heck down.
Dear Chechies, We just dropped you off at your Abuela’s house. I stayed in the car so I could calm down your sister and didn’t get to give you a besito before we left. I’m sorry baby girl. Normally, you are SO excited to spend the night with Abuela and eat Arepitas and watch all […]
Adventures in Parenting: Newborn Week 1
Alexandria was a very uncomfortable baby. There were days where I wasn’t sure if I would make it – the crying, the screaming, the poop explosions. I just kept thinking “I knew it would be hard, but not THIS hard”. After months of trial and error with multiple Pediatricians, we finally got a diagnosis – […]
My amazing, Milena
Once you have one child, it’s hard to imagine you could ever love anything else as much, ever. Until you find yourself staring at another vernix covered human being with happy eyes and a funny cry. My beautiful Milena. With your pouty lips and your piercing eyes. They’re a little smaller than your sisters were, […]
Grateful for the summer
I can’t believe in 8 days or less, we will have another princess in our lives to love and cherish. Another little life, depending on us, to guide her through this crazy world. Another delicious munchkin to cuddle, and kiss, and teach Alexandria how to love. They say everything happens for a reason – idk […]
