Name change and updates...

I decided to change the name of my blog because life as I know it has changed. I LOVE traveling and don't plan on giving that up entirely but with marriage comes more responsibilities and having a baby adds even more. So now that I have a newborn, we will be traveling as a family. Translation...higher costs which means fewer trips. At least until we become independently wealthy :-).

We will make the most of the trips though. We'll still try to do one family vacation each year but it might be more within the US as opposed to outside of the US.

In anycase, my new blog name says it all.

Without further ado, here are some pics of our little game (or life) changer.

Look at those cheeks! I can't help but kiss them several times each day. I know she likes it though cause I always manage to get a smile out of her when I do.


OK...this is the look on my daughter's face whenever she passes gas. Yup...its a surprised look. Makes me laugh each time cause the expression is saying "wait, who did that???"


My daughter still HATES tummy time. But if back time was an Olympic sport for babies, she'd win gold!!! There is an Nigerian adage about looking up instead of looking down. Since she is part Nigerian, I wonder if that's why she'd rather be looking up than down? I am sure I am reading too much into that but still...



On a not so cool note, postpartum shedding has begun :-(. NOT cool!!! I thought for sure I'd be the exception. I guess not.



On a cooler note, they are making progress on our new home! We hope to be moved in by mid-March. Yay!!! Hurray for more space! I can't wait to spread out! Hubby moved into my condo so we could save up faster for a house. When I bought the condo and lived here alone, it was spacious. When we got married and J moved in, it became cozy. After I had JOE, it became CRAMPED! That girl has more use of the space than we do. But I wouldn't trade it for the world.



So how has your week been so far? I'd love to hear from lurkers as well. Drop me a note to say hello. I promise to visit and comment on your blog.
