Happy Birthday Asha!

Happy Birthday Asha!

Dear 2017- welcome!

And now let me apologize for not posting for the longest time. I was getting caught up with life. So many things have happened in the past few months that I need to write a few posts on those. Stay tuned for a few backlogged posts those are long overdue. Today however I decided to pick up my pen err open my blog to wish my first born a very happy fourth birthday! My little A who is not so little anymore turned four today. Where did the time go?

The whole reason I started this blog on the first place was to document my journey of motherhood. As soon as A was born I felt like I needed to pour my thoughts down somewhere so this blog was discovered. So in honor of her birthday I decided to revisit and post something for you all.

A is my first born. The witty one, the sweet one, the super sensitive one. She is stubborn and very determined but she is so sensible and nurturing that we are always in awe with her antics. This is the girl who stayed in my tummy for almost two extra weeks. This is the girl who did not want to leave my belly and had to be evicted (I say that with utmost love). This is the girl who taught me to put someone else’s needs and wants before putting my own. This is the girl who made me a MOTHER. I am forever grateful to be called “mama” by this little girl and her even little-er sister. My little A is four today. It is incredible to see how far we have come around. From not knowing how to hold a baby to being a mom of two and to have carried two babies back to back, gave birth back to back and breastfed my babies well over 18 months, I think I now have this motherhood thing pat down (if only). Joking aside this little girl has taught me so much in the past 4 years, I am humbled and proud at the same time to be her mother.

A is very determined and also super compromising. She teaches us a lot about perseverance and not to give up- ever! This girl loves her sister more than anything and calls herself M’s best friend forever (melts my heart). A taught me how to be patient (working on that still) and how to be a protective mama bear. Our life is so colorful because of our girls. A is truly an adventurer. This little girl started traveling when she was only 8 months old (first trip Cancun, Mexico). Since then she has about a dozen trips under her belt. She is the happiest when she sits in the plane and go explore new places and new faces. This girl loves to just be out and about. This girl even took on a trip to Dubai (14 hours flight each way) like a piece of cake. No complains, no fuss! Hats off to this explorer. We will try our best to fulfill your life with as much adventures as we can my dear daughter. You deserve nothing but the very best life has to offer. You, my child, are one in a million and we are smitten over you. We love you so much and we wish you a very happy fourth birthday! Love you always!

Birthday, Work and Instagram!

Birthday, Work and Instagram!

Hello my Dear Friends,

I am SO over the winter blues and very ready for the nice and warm sunny rays. Aren’t we all though? Luckily, this week I will be able to enjoy some 60 degrees weather (close to 70s actually) and I am not complaining.

So what is new with me? We recently celebrated baby M’s first birthday. I know we all say it but seriously where did the year go? Just with a blink of an eye miss M is ONE year old and big sis A is now THREE! My girls are getting big and I cannot believe I actually did survive the first year of the second baby while going through the terrible twos of Miss A. I guess that would be my super power lol. What is yours?12322768_1302166389809983_769838979543513551_o

My work has gotten super busy. I worked from home 100% for the past 3.5 years (yep, super lucky there) and now I have just started to go to work 3 days a week and that has been a BIG adjustment for me and my family. I know I am still lucky enough to be able to work from home two days a week and when needed but I almost forgot how much work it is to actually get up at 6 am, take shower, style my hair (styling means blow drying and flat ironing ), to put on makeup, to pick professional clothes, pack some snacks for the road and so on. Phew. Oh the snack packing brings me to my most interesting point, my commute! From zero commute to now one way 50 miles commute is not fun, at all! Yep 50 miles each way. That is a whole lot of gas and mileage on my car and if you know the Capital Beltway, it is not the fun-nest road to drive on 😉 . Anyways- I have been trying to make that commute as my “me” time. I snack on some dry fruits and Kind bars, listen to the Kane show and gather my thoughts. I make ALL my big plans while I drive these days lol. It’s funny you actually start to enjoy the long drive some days (some days).

The other new thing that I have is I have started to use Instagram a LOT lately lol. I mean at least one post a day , which is a BIG deal in my books. I am trying to stay active on social media by putting more pics on IG that way I am still keeping in touch with you all. What? You haven’t followed me on IG yet? You have got to! My IG name is pjmomblog , simple 🙂 . Please follow me as I capture my cuties behind the iphone lenses. I have been trying to use a lot of hash tags to for the sake of visibility in the world of IG as well. So if you are up for keeping up with my babies’ shenanigans follow me right now.

Rest all is well, I will post Miss M’s birthday pics soon. Until then see you on IG.

XoXo

The year 2016 .

Posted on

Every year I make some resolutions for the new year- some I keep (loosely) and some I don’t. Without fail each year my goal has been (like many of yours’) to stay healthy and fit and may be lose a few pounds while I am at it.Well, I still have that goal and a few others. This year my primary focus is “organization”. For the past three years I have been so preoccupied with raising kids and working full time I have let go of a lot of things and things have really “messy”. When I say messy I am not only talking about my house. My house obviously probably will never be Pinterest perfect and clean (with two kids and a dog) but I am finally going to make an effort to take time to get my life a little bit less messy and a whole lot cleaner and organized.

Organized not necessarily mean the clutter in the house but in my life too. My crazy life will stay crazy for a while I am sure but I have decided I am not going to let that control my life. I am going to start prioritizing and following some sort of schedule and pattern for things. I am going to be the me that was before kids. I was much more organized and had time to take care of myself and my hubby. But having kids have taken a toll on me so I am going to work on some of these things.

I want to  try to focus on things that really matters to me. I am not going to wait for the perfect moment instead I will create a perfect moment myself. My focus will be my home, my family and me 🙂 . So I am going to try to stay on top of things. For example: this blog! I wasn’t very active in the last year but my goal is to get back on it and try to post as much as possible. The reason why I started this blog on the first place was to write. This was going to be my escape and somehow I didn’t do that last year. But going forward I want to make an effort of be very active on it.It definitely deserves some loving. So help me achieve that.

Since I just finished talking about my goals , I want to know about yours. What are your 2016 goals?
