Day 7 of picture challenge!

I always forget I have a blog so of course I forget about the challenge...
Day 7 is a pic of my most treasured item...
My wedding ring is my most treasured item because it symbolizes the love and commitment my husband and I have for one another. I would also not have my wonderful baby girl if I had not met the most wonderful guy on earth! <3

Day 6 of picture challenge (which I suck at) (the challenge I mean)

Person I would like to trade places with for the day!
I love my life and wouldn't trade it for the world, but since this is a little challenge game thing I would like to trade places with Kourtney Kardashian. She is such a great mom, has great style, and runs successful businesses! She seems to do it all and much more! :)

Day 5 of picture challenge...

A picture of my favorite memory...
My favorite memory is when I became a mommy. Beside the 21 hour labor I absolutely loved that day! That day will always stay with me because that is the day I stopped being so selfless and started putting others before me!

(I skipped day 4 of picture challenge because my nights start when Brynlee is asleep and I like to take advantage of my nights and not spend them taking pictures)

Brynlee is getting bigger :(

Brynlee is 4 months old and is getting chunkier and growing everyday. She acts like such a big girl sometimes that it makes me sad to think that soon I wont have a baby anymore :( I recently bought her a baby excersaucer and didnt think she would have much use for it yet. Boy was I wrong! She loves it! she already tries to stand up on her own and sometimes even goes all the way around looking at all the toys by herself! It is meant to be for 6 months old but I guess they were wrong!

I am in search of the perfect convertible car seat for her because she is soon going to outgrow her baby car seat. She isnt to the maximum weight but she hates being cooped up in the small seat. Her feet touch the back of the seat in our car so I am hoping a convertible car seat will make her feel more comfortable. I wish they would make car seats that were safe enough for babies to look forward in and now they have changed the law's to not turn the seat around till they are 2 years old! My poor baby girl! I know she would just love it that much more if she would look forward.
Saturday was my little cousin Gustavo's birthday party and I put her next to the pinata and she started grabbing the confetti paper it was way cute to see her reaction to it.

Then my uncle put Brynlee's face next to the cake thinking she wouldnt know what to do but she surprised us all by taking a big bite out of it! How does she even know what a cake is?
awh my baby is growing up! :(

day 3 of picture challenge

a picture of the cast of my favorite show...
One Tree Hill is my all time favorite show, it was a lot better when lucas and peyton were still on the show but I am a true fan no matter what. I have all the seasons on dvd and watch the show on tv as much as possible. I know im a nerd! lol

nurse before or after giving baby puree/cereals?

I have recently started Brynlee on baby foods, cereals and carrot or squash puree, and I was doing my research on line to see other mom's experiences. I was curious to know how much food Brynlee should be eating, and if I should be nursing her before or after giving her food or if I should nurse her at all. 
Well my mommy instinct, my research, and the docs suggestions has led to my decision. I will be giving Brynlee 2 tablespoons of food and nursing after. She seems to be doing really good with this and loves seeing a plate full of food in front of her! She loves squash more than cereal or carrots, which is strange cause I hate the taste of squash and cant imagine what she could possibly like about it.

Hello blog world!

Well I am new to the blogging world, so here i go...
I will start my blogging with a little about my family and who we are.
I am married to, Matias Contreras. We have been married since December 29, 2009. I am so lucky to have found such a wonderful guy, he truly is my other half and everything I could have ever wanted in a husband and much more! On February 3, 2011 we added a little baby girl to our family. Brynlee Maite Contreras is the most wonderful baby in the world. She is beautiful, energetic, happy, and has the cutest smile. She is my EVERYTHING.
I absolutely love being a wife and mother and could not be happier with my life right now! I am a stay at home mommy and co-own a day care with my mother in law. My husband has worked as a granite counter top installer and has been working on cars since he was little and now is working on starting his own shop.
I am excited to see what our future brings us and can only hope that it's as good (if not better) than it is right now.
