Happy 2nd Birthday Beautiful Niece

On a day like today 2 years ago my beautiful niece was born and I became an aunt.
 It's crazy how fast time is gong by, I remember being in the hospital  room and seeing her come into the world and now she's a toddler.
Wishing my beautiful baby girl the happiest of birthdays. So excited to see all the things you will do and all the places you will go. Wishing you the most magical year ever. 
We love you Frida!!

While my babies are asleep..

There are no words to explain what I feel when I see my babies together. The love that my munchkin and Jellybean share is beautiful. My heart feels like it's going to burst when I see baby girl  look at her big brother. The bond that they share is so strong already. There was a time when I felt bad about waiting so long to have baby girl but now that he is here I know that it was the right thing to do. Miguel will always remember the day his baby sister came into this world and the moment he became a big brother, he will remember the special moments that they already share and he will remember how special it was to become a big brother. I'm truly one blessed momma.

Baby Milestone - Independence

Baby girl is trying to eat by herself. She now wants us to put the food in her hand or cut it up into tiny pieces that she can put in her mouth by herself. It's really hard when she sees you eating something and she wants to taste it but it's either too hard or too full of spices. Try explaining to a learning baby that they can't eat it. It's not easy.
So bittersweet experiencing all these baby milestones because they mean that baby girl is growing up and she won't be a "baby" anymore. In my heart she will always be my baby :)

Excited for jellybeans next milestone.

Babys 1st Cold

This is something that baby girl did during her time being sick. She loved being rocked in the rocker and listening to children music on the Kurio tablet. Jellybean got her 2nd booster flu shot last monday on the 5th of January and everything went down hill from there. She woke up on Tuesday with a runny nose and Wednesday it was a full blown congested cough. It only kept getting worse to the point that she stopped eating completely and there were no wet diapers. I was already crying because I didn't want to take baby girl to the ER, it can be a very tramuatizing experience. 
Things finally started looking up on Sunday, she slowly started eating and being herself again. The cough is still there, that's always the hardest thing from a cold to go away and theres a slight runny nose but baby girl is already eating more and she's walking/speed walking. We are trying our best to try and kick this cold in the butt. The irony is that the day she got the booster shot I was telling my mom how lucky we were that baby girl had not been sick since being born and boom the next day and almost a month before her 1 year birthday she had to go get sick :(
But things can only get better and I'm happy to say we survived jellybeans 1st cold. Heres hoping it's her last one this winter!

Now for some fun news :) I'm trying to vlog again and I uploaded a new video! The last video I uploaded to YouTube was when I was pregnant with Jellybean. Fun part is watching my munchkin being shy and thinking "Oh God what is my momma doing?!' lol.
I'd love the love and subscribers - You can find me under Runchiquitarun
Hope you'll follow me and my family on our adventures this 2015

Question: I'm debating how to do my Youtube channel. Should I name it after this blog? C'est La vie
Should it be called after my username RunChiquitaRun?
Or should I name it something like Love, Kary?
Ahhhhh.. I'm lost and I'd love any input!

Cheers to 2015 and Atkins

I'm half lactose intolerant, half not. Say what? Yes, I'm not lying. There are certain milk products that I can eat and I won't feel a thing and there are others that I will eat or drink and the pain is so bad it feels like I want to roll over on the floor in pain. That's why I was especially excited to try the Atkins Shakes, I'm not a masochist but I love when I can find something that has lactose and it doesn't bring on pain. I love Ice Cream and I'm not such a crazy fan of the soy ones. Ok, but getting back on track. Just looking at the picture on the shake of the chocolate one, your mouth will drool. It really does look and sound yummy, not only that but it's packed with protein and only has 1g of sugar. Can't beat that! It also smells good, me being a picky eater means I rely a lot on scent and look. So I like to smell things (don't judge me, please) The shake smells delicious, it's smooth and really chocolaty. It's Chocolaty Delicious!
I was sent two flavors to try out and the other one was vanilla but my son snatched that one away and drank it all by himself. Yep, family friendly again. I'm happy to report that the shakes can also be found at Target, they are budget friendly and perfect for snack on the go. My son has been really bad with eating lately and these shakes have really come in hand with helping him get a good dose of protein.
As the new year kicks in and I make resolutions, plans & goals. This momma will be getting herself mentally and physically ready for the NYC Marathon of 2016, first I need to get my 9 +1 done (more on that later) I think about that week that I started the atkins way of eating. At first I called it a diet. That's what it's technically called, but after trying it out I realized it's a way of eating healthy and making healthy decisions. Diets are when you restrict yourself from eating something and with Atkins you are really just watching what you are eating and down sizing portions. One of this years resolutions is to keep the Atkins way of eating, I've lost 10lbs so far, healthy weight lose for this breastfeeding momma. The good thing is that my body feels lighter and healthier and as I start to train these coming months I'll be more than happy to carry around some Atkins bars in my pockets :)
Cheers to a new year with Atkins and a most fit 2015!

Catching up & life..

Life, its been a hectic one this past month. There was a very tramautizing event that happened to Miguel during the month of November. I've only told a few of my closest friends and I chose to keep it out of my media outlets for his sake and ours. The healing process has been a very rough and hard one but we've received so much love from so many people its amazing. I'm happy to see him smile more and even though he does have his days, things are starting to look up again. Just when I thought I was going to break, husband had an accident at work. He cut his finger and sliced it open, he ended up with 6 stitches and one week off from work. The one week off from work was good for our family & for him, even though we rely on his work income. We had family by our side to help, & savings. Before I knew it, it was already the beginning of December and we are now getting ready for Christmas, New Years Eve & Valentina's big 1 year birthday. We started this year full of so much excitement & blessings but now it seems like we get to end it with nothing but bad memories. I promise you that I'm trying my best for it not to be that way. I will make these last 2 weeks of 2014 the best ones possible! I'm also planning to get back to more life updates. I'm sorry for those of you who have come and it seems like all you see are reviews & what not but this momma has been giving her little family some much needed attention! I'm also hoping to get some vlogs done, so I hope you stick around and join us. Hope you all have been good. Love, Kary xoxo P.S. this blog was done on my phone so the text might be all over the place.
