It’s october, which is pumpkins month: pumpkin lattes, carved pumpkins, pumpkin spice candles and of course…pumpkin patches… This year is my first year when I got to visit a pumpkin patch. This year is my first year to do a lot of things actually…thanks to Christian… Remember, I was saying that because of him I’m discovering the world again?! So this is true in this case too… A lot of times I think he is too small for stuff and he won’t be interested in like maybe going to the zoo or children’s parks…and I thought that pumpkin patch won’t be interesting for him too.. But we decided to go anyways, just because pumpkin patch is not all year around thing, plus it’s free if he doesn’t like, it’s not a big deal.. Surprisingly, he liked it, he was touching all the pumpkins, he wanted to eat hay (he is putting everything in his mouth)… Continue reading »
This past week was really busy.. Every day we went somewhere..either to the store to get groceries, or to BabiesRUs, pumpkin patch, church, volunteer training, playground, library, dinner with friends… I mean we really did a lot… By the end of the week I was pretty exhausted.. But I want to do so many things with Christian, it’s just so much fun!! He is discovering the world, he’s interested in everything, and the weather is nice… Soon it will be cold and nasty, and I know that I will have to make myself get out of the house and do something…
Another reason why I decided to get out of the house in the mornings is that right now Christian is in the phase when he doesn’t need two naps, but one is not enough.. And when he is in the house he takes only one nap around 12 or 1 pm, but then he gets tired by 6-7 pm, and he doesn’t really want to play or do anything, but it’s too early to put him to bed, and it’s too late to put him for his nap… So when we’re driving somewhere he always falls asleep, and it takes about 15-20 min in average to get to our destination, so it’s like a power nap for him.. If it takes less than 15 min, I just let him sleep in the car a little bit. So this power nap is good for him, it gives him enough energy till 2 pm..sometimes later.. We get home around 1 pm, have lunch, and then I put him for his nap, and he sleeps till 4 pm approximately, and he is in a good mood till it’s time for bed again…
U-N-B-E-L-I-E-V-A-B-L-E … that’s all I can say… It’s been a year… I just..I seriously can’t believe it.. Only a year ago I was pregnant with Christian and then gave birth, and he was so little, and couldn’t do much..and right now look him, he’s walking everywhere and can do so many things.. I really love this time right now, every day he learns something new and he is so smart and so strong..but I really mis that time when I could just hold him and cuddle with him, or lay down with him and just be still…right now it’s possible only for 5 sec or when he’s asleep I love him so much..and it’s different kind of love, different from the love you have for your parents, different from the love you have for your spouse..just totally different. And what’s interesting is that it’s the same word, but emotions and feelings are different… Continue reading »
So as you guys might already know, I was stressing out in preparation for Christian’s birthday party and that’s why I didn’t have time to update my blog or my YT channels… But his bday celebration took place on Wednesday, and it was great..now I have time for my routine again and will update my blog regularly..:-)
We wanted to do a family photoshoot for a while now…since Christian’s birth.. But we either didn’t have time or just didn’t want to spend so much money on this.. (Photo shoots are crazy expensive here in U.S. comparing to prices in my country and then they either give you like 30 photos or you can only choose this many yourself… And photographers in Tashkent give you all photos that they took..If it’s 200, you will get 200..) so it was difficult for me to overcome this difference in prices and etc. But we still needed quality family photos before Christian got too big.. And I definitely didn’t want to regret not having family photos when Christian was just a baby… So we did it.. I found the deal on Groupon, for the price that I was ok to pay… And here is the final result
This photo was taken around 1 am on Saturday night by the club… Yes, club!! I thought my clubbing days were in the past haha… But I guess not… Our friend had a birthday party, so we went to celebrate.. I haven’t been in the club for over 4 years, and that was my first time in the club here in Dallas… We really enjoyed our time, but I can tell that I’m getting older.. I remember before I could party till 5-6 am on Fridays, and then repeat it on Saturdays and sometimes Sundays, and I felt great the next day… This time I was in bed at 3 am, and Christian decided to wake up at 5:30 am, so I was up of course, because no one cancelled my mommy’s duties We missed church on Sunday, and the whole day were just sleepy..I’m not complaining though, we had a great time !!
