Progress Report - Three months!

It was my first week back to work and it has been a crazy busy week both at work and at home. J & I are both trying to get our routine down and so far, so good. I missed JOE so much each day when I left home but she was in good hands during the day. Also, her dad took such great care of her and got her ready for the day before heading to work. He also gets a chance to have some bonding time with her.

Our little girl turned 3-months yesterday. JOE has continued to make lots of milestone progress in the last month. She truly is our pride & joy!

Months 2 - 3: (Height: TBD, Weight: TBD @ next appointment)
1. JOE is almost rolling over. She gets to the tilting point when she rolls to her side but then falls back. We figured sometime in the next couple of weeks, she'll be rolling over.

2. JOE can now laugh out loud! She's been smiling for a while but then she started laughing this past Wednesday. I was hoping to capture it on video but every time I put up my camera or cell phone to get it, she stops and gets a quizzical look on her face

3. JOE is starting to have better eye hand coordination. She can put her own binky in her mouth (when she is not sleeping).

In other news, I got my hair done last night. It took almost 3-hours to get it done. Time away from my daughter but I needed to get this taken care of. Happy mom = better mom.
Why did it take so long? Because 2 of those hours was spent taking out the knots in my hair. I am not sure what happened but my hair suddenly started matting up last week. I tried everything to smooth it out. From washing, blow drying and using lots and lots of conditioner. I lost a lot of strands in the process.
Finally on Tuesday, I got in touch with my hair dresser who asked me to come in. Here's the finished product. I didn't lose too much length but lost quite a bit of volume.
I texlax my hair every 16-18 weeks (only lasted 16-weeks this time) so I am hoping it doesn't start knotting up again.

Have a fabulous weekend!


  1. Your hair looks so healthy! i like. What does 'texlax' mean?

    1. Thank you. Texlax is just a milder relaxer that allows me to maintain the texture of my hair without straightening it completely. I think its a mild relaxer mixed with different essential oils to slow down the processing.

  2. Oh wow, JOE has changed so much in three months. She is super adorable. Sounds like u coped pretty well on your first week. Happy for you.
    Your hair looks amazing!!!!!!!!

    1. Thank you! I lost quite a bit of hair yesterday but I figured it could have been worse so I am trying to count my blessings.

      She sure has. We are very happy with her progress. Thank you!

  3. Happy 3-month JOE. She is doing so many fun things.
    Your hair looks so beautiful and so long. Keep doing what you are doing.
