Our princess is at her lil explorer class right now. The class is 40 minutes only so I have to wait for her. I am glad I have my ipad with me so while waiting I decided to do a blog update. We enrolled Mackenzie in this class and the arts and crafts class for this month and we will see which classes she can do next month. We just want her to have fun and learn something with the other kids. She actually had her other class yesterday and she is very excited about it. She woke up so excited with this class also so let's see.

Last week I had to bring hubby to the urgent care and then to the ER. He had a high fever for 24 hours and he felt horrible which was the very first time that I heard my hubby complained. I knew then that something is wrong and he needed to be seen by a doctor. When we got the the urgent care his oxygen level was below normal so they had to send hubby to the ER. We found out that he has pneumonia on his right lung. Thanks God we went to the ER right away and his doctor prescribed some antibiotic for him to take. Hubby is feeling better now but still taking the antibiotic until he finishes all. We only stayed at the hospital for couple hours just to hydrate hubby and ran some test and went home. I just hate being in a hospital because then we know that most people that stays there are sick. While we were waiting for hubby's name to be called, there was one man who is in a full face respirators. I feel bad when I see people who are in pain. It's heart breaking and all I can do is to pray that everything will be fine.

My husband and I together with our princess are very excited because I am 10 weeks pregnant with our second baby. It is such a wonderful blessing from God. My baby's due is on December 18th which is 6 days after my birthday. Well, guess what? It is possible that I'll have the baby on my birthday. Isn't it exciting? I'll tell you, this pregnancy is way different from my first one because I have been having morning sickness everyday since the first month with this one. I am hoping that it will go away soon as what my ob-gyn told me. It is not easy at all but I know it will be worth it. I can complain about the morning sickness but I'll take it for our little one coming. Anyhow, it's the reason why I have to stop working. Aside from the morning sickness that I am going through right now, the lifting is not a good idea at all for me. I don't think I will be able to do my job as a CNA safely and my safety and my baby's will be at risk.

Ever since we had a baby it’s become more and more important to me that we use natural products. I don’t know why – I think it’s because of this documentary I watched a few months back – but I’m really paranoid about the products my baby is ingesting and breathing in every day. I’ve started making her baby food for her because I think it’s really important for her to get all the nutrients she needs with as few preservatives and chemicals as possible. I also switched to all green products at home because I was worried about the residue of bleach and things like that in the house. We actually changed our water to filtered and I went to www.electriccompaniesindallas.com/green-electricity.html and researched some of the green energy options in our area, too, because it’s not just about my daughter being healthy but also having a healthy world to wake up to in years when she’s older, you know? But I’ve been doing the cloth diaper thing which is good for the environment and also saves us money in the long run – although it is pretty gross! My husband planted a small vegetable garden in the back which should be nice when it warms up because we can grow our own produce and I can start using that to make her baby food. I love my daughter so much and I just want to do everything I can to make sure she has the happiest, healthiest life possible. I want her to grow up to be strong and have a healthy immune system and I know she’ll appreciate all the work I’m putting in now when she gets older, you know? My children are going to be my world and since we’ve started talking about trying for another baby I think it’s more important than ever that my husband and I are on the same page about the wellness of our family. It’s my priority!
Wow! It's been so many months since the last time I updated this blog. My life have been busy but not again. I was working at a hotel for two months and at a nursing facility for four months. I had to stop working though for some reasons which I will share here in my next posts. So anyway, I am back to a stay at home mom and wife again. It will stay like this for a little while and I have no choice. I will just make myself busy with my little princess and by doing the house chores while husband is working, that is if I am not in bed sleeping. For now I have to go watch movie in bed before night night time. Happy Memorial Day everyone!

We are saving like crazy for a house. I’m pregnant with our first child and we’re still in the condo so I want to get out of here and moved in somewhere before the baby’s born. This place is two bedrooms and that’s fine, but it’s not really suitable for raising a family. I love the location because we can walk to so many of Dallas’ best restaurants and stores but you know, we need more space. Anyway, we got some Money Saving Tips from our old Realtor (he helped us find this condo) and we’ve been stashing money away for months. It shouldn’t be too long before we’ve got enough for a sizeable downpayment on a house but first we need to find one we like! I don’t want anything too terribly big because I’m going to be the one cleaning it, not to mention hearing about it when the electric bill is high! I need to focus on taking care of the baby not renovating a house, too, so I don’t want to move into a home that needs too much work. It’s nice to dream about all the great neighborhoods near us but honestly, we’re in such a desirable location it’s going to be too expensive for us to buy a single family home here. I’m really proud of the way my husband and I have been saving money the last few months but I sure wish we’d been doing it for years so we weren’t breaking our necks now! If only we’d had the foresight to figure out that it was going to cost so much to get ready for a baby on top of buying a home, I think we’d be in better financial shape. Who knows exactly where we’ll be a year from now? I sure hope we’re in a new house in a great neighborhood and we’re excited to have a baby that’s about 6 months old!

I am so proud of my daughter because she didn't give my hard time potty training her. She may have peed on her undies but only couple of times. I have tried doing it for days at first and then I stopped and then tried it again until I noticed that she doesn't want to wear diaper anymore. Or most of the time she would tell me to chance her diaper because it's wet or dirty. Sometimes she just remove it by herself. So I decided to really start potty training her for real. One day, I put her on nap and I didn't put any diaper on just undies. She slept for 2 hours and the whole time I was checking her if she's wet or our bed. I started to get excited after an hour past without any accident until another hour and she finally woke up. I was so happy and excited that she slept through her nap for two hours without any accident. I thought that time that she is ready to stop wearing diaper. So the same day at night, I didn't put diaper on her anymore and that was the first day that she wears underwear alone. Now, she would just tell me whenever she wants to go potty and I am happy and proud of her.
