My King's First Birthday


Before anything else, I wanted to share some images from our trip to 'Children's Park' last week and how our day went.  As I wasn't hoping, it rained.  We took the high chair anyways because it wasn't raining when we left but it wasn't exactly clear either.  By the time we got there it was already cloudy so we just took the king and the bags to look for a spot to set up the high chair.  I never really took a good look at the park before.  It does have its nice spots.

My One-Year-Mom Anniversary


As of yesterday, October 10 2013 at 1:52pm, I have been a mommy for one year.  I have cried out of happiness, frustration, and anger.  I have laughed out of happiness, bewilderment, and anger (you know, when you're so angry you just laugh - or does that only happen to me?)  It hasn't been all from my king either.  It has been with this whole being a stay-at-home-mom thing.  Truth is, it doesn't get the respect it deserves and after a while, it hits a tipping point.  But, honestly, my son makes everything worthwhile.  I'm still scared, but I am loving every moment even if it doesn't go like I thought it would.

My First Official App!



After days and days and days of figuring out how to work the programs to create the app I wanted, I finally got the hang of it.  I realized there was quite a bit of information I wanted to put in, so I left the app alone.  Then, I used an app to make apps and made a SECOND app...which I liked a bit but it wasn't up to date so I left that, too.  Correction: I didn't leave these apps, I put them on PAUSE.  I wanted to make one I could make easily and that could be at least slightly useful.  I just wanted to see what was the whole process of making and publishing an app.  I was watching Project Runway (Go Justin! Go Braden!) when the idea for my app hit me.

My King Deserves a Crown


The park I wanted to take my king to on his first birthday is closed (it's a national park know...government shutdown?) so we've decided to go to 'Children's Park'.  I've only been to it once some years ago for a Christmas activity.  It has a pond and a fountain, some gazebos, and playground areas.  Basically I just want a place where I can set up his highchair and take some photos.  I also want to be able to play with him.  Maybe swing with him.  I don't know if they have swings, but I hope so.

NaNoWriMo 2013


So NaNoWriMo is coming up.  As you may have read before this is not the first time I'm going to attempt to tackle it.  Still the same plan so there's not much of me trying to come up with an idea.  I want to incorporate a town I used to live in, which actually was always my original idea since I don't know when.  I was having problems before with the names for my characters.  I just couldn't come up with ANY name.  That's too easy and that's  hehehe

Belated Freakout


In a little over a week (eight days to be exact), my king will turn one.  ONE.  I've heard that it is one of the most anticipated milestones a parent has.  I have no idea why.  I feel that it came too fast.  I've heard of parents that get sort of anxious as their due date gets closer.  A lot of ifs ands or buts that creep into their heads.  They start doubting themselves before the baby is born.  Some still have some anxiousness left over once the baby is here, but then it goes away and they look forward to that first birthday.  My baby came and it felt so natural for me.  As if it was something I had been doing forever.  I never felt nervous, or anxious, or worried.  I knew I could take care of my baby.  And yet as I am writing this, I can't help but feel..."OH MY GOD. HE'S TURNING ONE.  WHAT THE HELL DID I GET MYSELF INTO?"
