Baby Magic is 8 Weeks Old!

Baby Magic turned 8 weeks this past Sunday. I know, this kid has too many nicknames! I'm trying to figure out what works. I generally find myself calling her "Booga" which I'm sure she will not appreciate later LOL. Anyway, I digress.

When I called to make her 2 month appointment I was informed that she would be getting immunized (unless I didn't want her to). I'm not that mom though. She is getting her shots! If you don't believe in immunizations, your prerogative. Parents do what they feel is right for their family. Getting her immunized is right for us.

I get her to the doctor's office and she gets weighed. She now weighs 8 pounds 15 ounces! YAY! I'm proud of my little stinker, and proud of myself. She has doubled her birth weight! And I love her new doctor! I had to switch because the last one was a little insensitive and kept trying to convince me that I didn't know when I got pregnant...yada yada. So I had to switch to doctor that would work for us. She is meeting all of her milestones and doing great! She finally smiled at me yesterday and I almost cried! I was beginning to think she didn't like me!

Dairy isn't agreeing with her little system so I have to switch her to Soy formula. **Wishing my boobs would have cooperated and I had been a bit more determined to breastfeed.** After seeing the doctor, we went back to the waiting room to wait for the immunizations. My stomach was in knots like I was about to get 3 shots. I put her on the table and tried to kiss her and love her up to distract her, to no avail. I have never heard my little darling cry so loud and hard! Nor has she ever had a face full of tears! This broke my heart! I wish I could take the pain for her! Her little eyes were looking at me like "WHY ARE YOU LETTING THEM DO THIS TO ME?!" I didn't cry, but I wanted to!

She slept most of the day and night, only waking up to eat. She did not want to be bothered and her frowning face let me know every time that I woke her up. She had a low grade fever, so I gave her some Infant's Ibuprofen. I wish I had known the dosage for her age before getting there, but now I know for the next time. We get to do it all over again in two months. Mommy might need a Valium!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities. If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome. Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you s
