I'm baaaaaaaaack!

I finally have things together and I can come back actively again. I am so excited, because I missed writing in here. It made me realize how much my blog really is a great thing for me.

Biggest news....I GOT THE JOB!! I am so excited. I am officially a Sales & Marketing Administrative Intern - yes, it is just an internship but a paid one at that :) This will most definitely put my foot in the door in the business world and I am just happy. It is going to be really hard being away from Jaliyah everyday but it is only 4/5 hours a day. I think my biggest fear is that I will miss one of her "firsts". What if I miss her first tooth? or her first time crawling? walking? word?! That kind of discourages me from ever leaving her side lol But I know it's for the best.

I have a list of new posts I am going to be working on. Now that I am working AND in school, I will probably post every other day instead of every day like I used to - but I am back being active - I promise.

WELCOME to the new reader's Baybee Luv has received while I've been out of commission.

Do you miss me?

Hello my dear followers!
I know, I know - you do not have to tell me - I am being quite neglectful lately. I've had a lot going on with school and trying to get a job. So I decided to give you a little update in hopes that you won't leave me :)

I've been going through the interview process for a GREAT corporate job in my area - I am really hoping I get it. I already had my telephone interview and my face-to-face interview. Tomorrow I go to interview with the Human Resource department and then we will see! This will be a great stepping stone for career. By may I will have my associates degree in Business Management (effing finally after 4 years!)! I will, of course, continue on to get my bachelor's. This job is only part-time but it is better then nothing and with all the great experience it will give me, I am glad I found it. I will probably get a second part-time as well.

You know my mommy-do list that I have been doing so well at? ...not...well I have like 400 more things to add to it! I need to make Jaliyah's 6 month check-up and pictures appointments. Can you believe she is about to be 6 months? Because I can't - it's insane. I'll only touch on her update a little bit otherwise I won't have a 6 month update post. But she can sit up on her own!! yay! She's been able to do it for about 4 days, she only falls backwards when she tries to look up at something really high.

I will leave you with a few recent pictures because I suck at project 365 :)

Looping Lullabies

Jaliyah loves music! She loves listening to it or being sung too. I received an e-mail from a group called Lullatone who take traditional lullabies and put their own spin on them with calming womb sounds, soft white noise, and heartbeat sounds. What a great idea! Some of the tracks include Hush Little Baby, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Rock-a-bye Baby. All the songs are popular, familiar songs and would be great to use as simple listening material for your little one, to sing-a-long too, and to help calm your little one to sleep.

I think this is just a GREAT idea. I went to their website and listened to their music and it is very soothing. I am definitely going to buy one or two CDs! I think it would make a great gift, too.

Want to know the best part of it?! When purchasing the album - you name YOUR OWN PRICE! How awesome is that!

I was in no way compensated for this review - I truly love the idea of this CD and think it is a GREAT product for any mother.

What a slackerrrr!

Hi, My name is Elisha - and I am a slacker.

UGH! I am slacking on my Mommy-Do list like..REALLY bad. All that stuff was supposed to be done 2 weeks ago..oops :( I desperately want to start on my scrap-booking and thus start on "Scrap-booking Sunday's".

The past 2 weeks have been full of not-so-fun things. I was supposed to start my online class 2 weeks ago but of course, the book I ordered with over night delivery did not show up until 4 days ago...needless to say, I am VERY behind and I don't think I can get any points/grades for the last 2 weeks assignments. Since it's only a 7 week accelerated class, I pretty much have to get A's on everything else to do good. PLus all the dumb drama relating to my previous post Mother?! You're not a mother..!

On the other side, Jaliyah finally convinced herself to like tummy time enough to learn to roll from her tummy to her back - yipee! This means (possibly) less crying?! haha - we will see. She is scooting like a pro and sitting up on her own for about 40 seconds! WOOO!! She is going to be on the move in no time - that's gunna be fuuuun!

Stay tuned: I am working on a couple reviews right now for Elisha's Essentials. Also working on some haul posts of some winter clothes and things that I have bought recently for Jaliyah - and yes, I know I am far far behind on project 365 - this is due to my dumb camera. I should have the catch-up pictures in one big post in the next few days.

Mother?! You're not a mother..

This is my place to vent, right?

I think being a mother is the most wonderful thing in the world, and there are many people out there who yearn to be called "mommy", who can't have their own children - who deserve their own children more then the world itself. This is why it bugs me when some woman just shouldn't be mothers..

What type of mother doesn't even have their own kids over half of the week so she can be with a man?
What type of mother doesn't put their kids in car seats/booster seats..risking their lives?
What type of mother sends their kids away for the weekend with NO clothes, NO underwear, NO toothbrush?
What type of mother has sex in front of their kids?
What type of mother wishes death upon their childrens father?
What type of mother doesn't like their 4 year old?
What type of mother wants to split their kids up just because of the previous question?
What type of mother chooses other people over their own child?

I could go on and on and on..but I won't, I think you all get the point. This type of person isn't a mother, isn't MEANT to be a mother, she is just an ignorant female who doesn't deserve the little gifts that have been given to her.

This is obviously due to frustration in my personal life with a certain invidual(s), but I will not name names. These statements are just my opinion, if you don't agree with me - don't read it. I am highly frustrated with "mothers" like this. Ugh..I wish I could take those poor children from her. :(

It's Friday!

Hey all new momma's from friday blog hops!! Check out my blog hop page for more hops!

Jaliyah and I are excited for this weekend. Jason is getting the girls (Jaliyah's sisters) and that is always a fun time. Besides having to catch up on school, there is a festival here in my city that we will probably be going to. I love little festivals with fun face painting, food, walking around, art, and all types of things. I am also thinking about taking them to the cider mill. We are for sure going to the cider mill with Chelsea (Dylan Daily) and her LO Dylan on Tuesday.

I love, love, love the fall! I love the feeling you get from the season, the pumpkins, apple cider, caramel apples, Halloween, Thanksgiving, changing leaves...I could go on and on. I am excited for Jaliyah to experience it for the first time.

OH! How could I forget?! Miss Jaliyah sat up on her own last night for about 8 seconds! Wohoo!
Don't forget...

5 Month Update

I can't believe Jaliyah is 5 months old already! That means she is almost 6 months, which means she is almost a year, which means she is almost 16, and then moving out! :( How sad..

Jaliyah can..

  • Push up with straight elbows during tummy time.
  • Rock back and forth and scoot forwards.
  • Sit by herself for about 2.5 seconds (lol).
  • Throw toys across the room/drop things and look for them - She knows they don't just disappear now.

She finally enjoys her bumbo seat now that she can support herself well. She likes to sit in it and watch out the window (Note to self: get bumbo seat tray). She is growing so quick, I need to invest in a scale too, but I think she weighs around 17.5 lbs now.

I am buying some veggies today, we will try them tonight! I think I am going to get squash - how exciting! I know I say this all the time but it is seriously so amazing to see the new things she can do each and every day.

Labor Day :)

I'm sure most new mom's are like this, but this weekend I kept saying "OH! This is Jaliyah's first _____!" Everyone would laugh at me lol But really, it was her first Labor Day, her first boat ride and her first beach trip! So I was quite excited and carried my camera all day.

On Saturday we went up to my dad's cottage for the day with my brother and new niece, Ariana. It was rainy and cold so we couldn't do much but just hang out - but it was still fun!

Sunday we just hung out with daddy and Jaliyah's sisters and went to the park, it was a much needed relaxing day for the both of us.

Monday was the best day by far! We went to my Aunt's cottage, where I grew up, and had a blast. It was kind of cloudy but we still made the best of it. Jason AND Jaliyah had their first boat ride - both of them loved it. The boat ride put Jaliyah to sleep, so cute.

Her first boat ride!

She had fallen asleep so she was zipped into Daddy's jacket to stay away from the wind lol

And it was Jaliyah's 5 month birthday! ♥

The Rattles Review and GIVEAWAY!

I was approached by The Musebox about a new family-friendly band, The Rattles. With a fresh, modern fusion of classic rock and power pop, similar to The Beatles, They Might Be Giants, and The Monkees, this colorful quartet has set themselves apart from the average children's music group by creating a listening experience that parents and adults can enjoy as well. Similar to the music of Yo Gabba Gabba, this project is about creating music EVERYONE can groove out to!

When I got the CD in the mail I was super excited (I love kids music, don't judge lol)! I immediately put it in and loved it. Jaliyah loves listening to music and The Rattles definitely caught her attention; we danced together and now we have "music time" every day after her afternoon nap! I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it as well, it's hard to find music that's equally enjoyable for adults and children.
The website is fun too! I checked it out and not only can you purchase the CD but there is music videos, pictures, printable coloring pages, and games! How cool!

Buy it: The Rattles Website
