some days are all about papa. While others are for only mama. And some are about papa and mama.
And this day was all about her mama.
Mama needs to hold her,
Mama need to carry her,
Mama need to feed her,
Mama needs to give her all the attention,
Mama needs to talk to her,
Mama needs to look at her,
Mama needs to cuddle her,
Mama needs to hold her hand.
No one can look at her while she’s with me, and no one can take her away. Even papa gets the cold shoulder. Because today was all about mama
… and that’s just fine with me
Being national nutrition month I thought I’d share a breakfast idea that I’ve been loving for Victoria lately.
At a recent trip to whole foods, I finally found these Earths Best Organic Mini Waffles. I’ve been hunting these down and I was so exciting to finally get my hands on them. Plus they were buy one get one free which was the icing on the cake. I picked out the home style and blueberry packs. I put them into the toaster, and paired her waffles with stonyfield blueberry yogurt, and diced mangos.
Victoria isn’t much of a picky eater and will try just about anything on her plate. And as a mommy on the go, I love these quick to grab and make waffles for breakfast. They’re made with 100% whole grains, and are USDA organic which is extremely important to me. I reccomend these to all mommies!

Thank you 💕
Some of the best Sunday’s are spent in bed watching friends and sharing giggles with my best gal
As a first time mommy, I go through a lot of first.
And taking Victoria to a night lite Drs office for an emergency was a first.
I know I’m mentioned before about Victoria having sensitive skin. We came to realize this after using johnson and johnsons baby powder. She got a bunch of red dots but very mild. At the moment I didn’t know what it was, so when I took her to her first dr visit I asked her and she told me it was just a heat rash. ( we changed Drs office soon after). We came to realize she only got the red dots when we used baby powder on her. We used only up and up baby powder by target and it worked great with her skin. A few days ago we went ahead and bought publix brand rushing and didn’t notice the bottom said ‘ingredients similar to johnsons and johnsons’. I noticed the red dots at night before her shower which I found very weird. I decided to not put the baby powder just because it was the only ‘new’ product we had used. The following morning they weren’t as bad, but as mid day came they began to spread into her face and became larger and brighter. Her father was at work, and we decided to take her to night lite, which is 10 minutes from our house. My sister came with me for moral support. It took about 20-30 minutes to go into the room. And Victoria was just fine until she saw the nurses and doctor. She scream, and yelled and cried and clamped onto me. The doctor recommended a medicine to help her sleep, he said it would make her dizzy but it won’t be a problem. Which really annoyed me. He left the room and a nurse came in with a shot, and said if she’s ready. I asked what it was and she used a big word which I didn’t understand, and the she said “it’s a steroid” which was a huge red flag and I said “I’m not giving my daughter a steroid”. She looked at me crazy and then left the room to get the doctor. When he came in he had the same crazy look on his face and asked how come I didn’t want to give her the steroid, and I told him exactly why. He said the steroid was to help control her itching. Which annoyed be because I specifically said she had no itching. My daughter rubs her tummy when she’s hungry, she pats her pamper when she does a number 2, and she rubs her arm or leg when she had a booboo. I know if my daughter was itching because she would have been itching. I knew she did NOT need no steroid nor medicine to make her drowsy. While leaving everyone looked at me all crazy. My sister read up on other mothers who’s children had the same thing and said calamine lotion did the trick! I took Victoria home and showered her in plain warm water, no soap. And then I put the lotion all over until it dried off, then put on her pajamas and by the next morning the rash was down 50%. By bed time it was 100% clear.
Always do your own research, you don’t have to do exactly what the doctors tell you. It’s your child and you know best!

I’m so excited about sharing this outfit, because I am obsessed !
Sunday was a family FUNDAY for us, and we went to fun spot ! If you don’t know what fun spot is, it’s some what like a carnival with rides and funnel cake but all year round. They have a children’s ride area, and we were hoping Victoria would be able to ride a few things. But once we actually got there I got nervous. I felt like she would try to get off the rides in the middle of the cars moving, so the only ride she actually went on what the tall big slides. She went once with me on my lap, and then once with her father. Surprisingly she wasn’t a tad bit scared, and really enjoyed it and cracked up once we got to the bottom! It was so precious to see her excitement.
This day was a little bit chilly, with a little bit of sun. I knew I wanted to put her new kitty ears headband on, so I revolved her outfit around it. Her scarf is actually one of mines, it’s really old. I don’t get much use out of it so I cut it to a size that fit V. And I love how she actually kept it on the whole time, didn’t even noticed she had it on. It was too cute!
I love dressing V up, it’s so much fun having a little girl !
Dress: Jillians Closet – Sandals: Gymboree
Another hot winter day in Florida ( hot and winter shouldn’t go together ). This night we were on our way to dinner, and wanted to dress her up a bit. I dressed Victoria in this beautiful lace pastel dress, which was a gift to V for her first birthday by her auntie KiKi. I love how light weight the dress it, and the detail on the neck and shoulder is gorgeous. Her shoes are by Gymboree, a gold flat. Which reminds me so much of Cinderella for some reason. But I love them, and they fit just right, so I want to get as much use as I can !
Growing up as a child, the most exciting thing for me was eating a huge feast and then getting to open our gives on Christmas Eve (a Hispanic thing). We waiting until real late to begin to open gift, and I remember being so happy and my heart racing of excitement to know what I received !
But now that I have my daughter, it’s stopped being about gifts. It’s stopped being about how many things I received and if I was given all the things I had asked for. It’s become more about lighting up my daughter faces. Last year she was a month and a half so we opened everything up. This year she was much more involved, ripping her gifts up and having joy written all over her face. The holidays to me means much more, it’s about teaching my daughter the importance of family, love, and appreciating everything you had before you opened gifts. About coming together for family traditions. I could never receive a gift again for Christmas, because all that matters to me is begin able to create a memorable, loving, and blessed childhood for my daughter.
I’m extremely happy to say this Christmas was a success, and I’m already looking forward to next year to see much how Victoria has grown, and being able to continue and maybe even start new traditions. I hope everyone had a safe holiday season, your healthy is well, and your stomachs are full. Xo Jesse
