Behind.


I’ve been behind on posting on here and I feel so bad. I feel like I could’ve at least put some effort in posting a picture a day or something. However, I’ve just really been busy with this month. There has been tons of birthdays and dinners to go to that I’m still trying to catch up with the pictures. I’ve made tons of effort to take pictures of Ryu every other day or at least a couple days a week. My friends have also taken pictures of Ryu, but of course they lag giving me any pictures since they feel like they have edit it first before anything.

My birthday was last week and I just wanted to share a small outting my friends and I had before my birthday. They took me out to lunch with Ryu and then off we strolled around Chinatown. I didn’t get many pictures throughout the day, but I’ll share with you the pictures I have of Ryu and I. It was such such a nice small birthday lunch that I felt like I got to just spend time with some of my favorite people and of course my one and only love life at the moment.

To be honest I don’t think I could’ve spent my whole birthday week. My friends definitely made it such a great experience for me this year. I also enjoyed the fact that Ryu is more than a year old now and so he can walk and just enjoy life around him with me. I absolutely love that I got to spend my first year without having to go out with just my friends and drink all night for my birthday. I think this is the first year that’s made me truly realize that I’m definitely a mother now and all I want is to spend as much time with my son. Ryu definitely made my life so much more worth living. He’s definitely the apple to my eyes and I don’t think I’ve ever felt so much more blessed in my life.

I had such a good time just just spending quality time with friends and my little man. I can’t wait til next year and I’m hoping to get even better quality pictures by then. I love you little man and than you for making my birthday experience this year much more spiritual and emotionally mind boggling for me.

Nanay’s Birthday (Great Grandmother)


I definitely want to greet my grandmother (Ryu’s great grandmother) a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!! Actually her birthday landed on a Friday evening and she pretty much just wanted a bunch of her church friends to come over our apartment and have a little get together. She wasn’t expecting much really nor did she want much, but to just spend time with her family and close friends. It was actually not bad having a good group of around 20 people over with tons of food and company. Honestly, I didn’t really do much gathering, I ate and then headed for our room. I know I’m probably a party pooper, but I was tired and well it was just getting way too loud for me.

They all absolutely loved Ryu! I’m glad they did because Ryu was literally everywhere trying to talk to everyone (well mostly babble) and just be his sweet, wholesome self. When I was younger I thought to myself I hope that one day I’ll have children while my grandparents are still around. I pray to God everyday for their health, safety, and just for them in general. They’ve been a really big part of my life and I couldn’t ask for better grandparents.  I also want them actively involved in Ryu’s life. They’ve always been involved in my childhood they practically raised me and took care of me which is why I dearly love them. They’re also very good with children and well I trust Ryu with them with all my heart. It’s funny because when Ryu was born and had a couple minor complications they would teach me how to deal with the situation the old school way.

So once again I wanted to greet my grandmother a happy 79th birthday. I’m very thankful for having the family I have in my life. They’re very supportive of me having Ryu at such a young age. I’m fortunate because a lot of parents and grandparents can be difficult in accepting their children or grandchildren having kids at such a young age. They’ve been very supportive since day one and I won’t lie at times they can get difficult and get on my case, but I know it’s because they care about me. I’m also glad that they absolutely love Ryu like no tomorrow. I hope that Ryu gets to truly experience them and their love (understanding who they are really) when he’s much older. I hope that they live long enough to see Ryu really grow up. They’re seriously such a big part of my life and I’d love for them to be a big part of Ryu’s as well. I know Ryu loves them even if he can’t say it just yet.
