Summer Beginnings

As a person who can't stand the summer heat, I gotta be honest it hasn't been that awful this year. Summer is winning me over so far and I am loving everyday of it. I have been really busy and have a lot of upcoming events so maybe that's why, usually in the winter I have so much free time. Also the weather has been pretty nice lately in NYC it's not as humid as usual and if it is it usually rains the next day which cools it down a lot. The kids have been enjoying the summer. I have been keeping them busy by checking out some local spots in NYC and taking them to ... Read the Post

The Weekly | Spring Time & The Boys

Life has been pretty sweet lately. I got a lot of stuff done that I've been meaning to do and now that it's all done I feel like I'm super mom! Ever get that feeling, like nothing can stop you? I love it! I did a lot of shopping and walking around since the weather was beautiful this week. I'm happy spring is here early, we're enjoying the weather and it feels great to get out the apt with the kids. I have been loving my Britax Affinity stroller. It's so easy to interchange the car seat/bassinet. I just pop it in and go, especially with the car seat. Right ... Read the Post

The Weekly | Goodbye February

I cannot believe February has come to an end, where does the time go. It's kind of crazy because today I was sitting at home just thinking about how fast the time is going and how Drake is going to be 6 and Donovan already 4 months, It's like life feels so fast the older we get. Like there is never enough time to just absorb it all and enjoy it. It's king of scary to me at times, All I keep thinking is one day my boys will be big, I will be old and I worry I might not get to fully enjoy it all like I really should. Life is always rush, rush, rush. Ever think that ... Read the Post

Drake is Four!

Yesterday, just like that, he turned four. These past three years, I've learned so much about being a "mom". I didn't know how hard it would be, how much time and effort, and I especially didn't know the love I would feel for him. Three years, just like that. A blink of an eye. I completely understand what mother's feel, I understand what they mean when they say "they grow so fast", because they really do. He's four years old and so so smart! For those who don't know (and i really never shared the full story), Drake is my second cousin. He came into my life ... Read the Post

7 Spoken Phrases | Drake

Oh my baby bear, how big you are getting :( He is so opinionated, and quick to speak his mind, he's just growing up so quickly, man how time flies by. Here are some sweet phrases Drake like's to say lately ..... "Yaya (that's what he calls me) I am not a baby I'm a big boy!" | There is no calling this kid baby lately. He refuses to allow anyone to call him a baby and even if they do he will stop them mid sentence and tell them exactly like this. "I'm not cute, I'm Handsome! Cute is for girls and Handsome is for boys!" | Same goes for calling him cute, I ... Read the Post

Drake the Bear

Lately Drake has been on an imagination roll. He refuses to be called Drake, his new name is baby bear (yes i'm serious). I think it's quite cute honestly. It all started when my brother gave him an old aviator style hat to try on. He ended up wanting it and now he wears it non stop, even in Pajamas. He won't let it go and he started acting like a bear too crawling (or walking) on all fours. It doesn't help either that i always call my babies my baby bear. It's pretty funny and if anyone says "Hi Drake" he will very seriously look at them and tell them, "I told ... Read the Post

Drake Gets Glasses

Oh the joy, Drake got glasses. He wasn't too thrilled about it at first but we made it into something fun and "cool" for him. He grasped the concept a little and was smooth sailing after that. The only thing though is that he kept fighting me at the store on which glasses he wanted. Obviously i won! He forgot about the pair he wanted (which were blue and too big for his face, otherwise i would of gave in) and anyway this pair looks much better on him. I was surprised he wanted nothing to do with the plastic flex glasses which i thought were cool for kids. He ... Read the Post

Terrible Twos

Ever since we took in Drake we couldn't be happier. He brings life to our home and is the most adorable little boy, honestly he is! But boy is he really testing us lately. I like to call it the terrible twos! Seriously he is on a roll touching things, throwing things, running away from us even when we are in the stores, and of course when you try to tell him no! he looks at you like "stop me". Honestly i give mothers out there with children all under the age of five kudos. It's pretty overwhelming because no matter how much time out you give them sometimes i feel ... Read the Post
