First hurdle of his first year had been met. He’s 3 months old and still adorable. ^_^
Let’s see, as a mother, I was finally able to take a bath! Though, I fell asleep. The moment my body relaxed, so did my mind and I slept. That was an hour bath! Now, I know that Gardenia from Deity’s Soulmate loves baths and fell asleep in one scene, that doesn’t mean that I need to follow in her footsteps. 😉
He also became responsive to my friends. The first person to see his smile was Al, my editor. It was surprising. He showed up to pick up printed copies of my novels for an event and I showed Al to my son. My son smiled and laughed!!! What a memory. Every month, I create an album with Shutterfly and 3rd month of life has lots of photos of him smiling. I’m very happy and he smiles at everyone.
He also has an angry face! The angry face comes out before a bath when its absolutely naked. We try to show him that it’s okay to go to the bathroom when he’s not inside a diaper and he actually peas into the toilet before each bath. I heard that babies in US spend so much time in diapers that when they’re without diapers, they’re afraid to go to the bathroom so I make sure that he spends time naked for a bit before a feeding and after. He kicks my stomach a lot when hes that way but he’s happy. Anyway, he looks adorable when he’s angry. ^_^
Also, he outgrew his clothing of newborn and 0-3 months of age so I have to open the box that I have at the back of the closet to take out clothing for 3-6 month of age. Perfect timing. He’s growing well.
Now, onto the author portion. Virtual tours of my work is in the future! Did some editing of Into the Flames– finally started editing it again.
I’m hoping to get back to finishing the last short story. I’m really sorry for taking so long but between work, the baby, and promoting, it was hard to write it. Now, I got some inspiration for it so will be posting it soon.
I did do more reading. This month, I won an ARC by my favorite author and was super excited to read, provide feedback, and write the review. I’m also helping out with Dead Over Heels By Theresa Braun Book Blog Tour with R&R Book Tours. It’s a short story and so I thought to give something back to the community. The Tour can be found at R&R Book Tours.
Also, I’m part of the Launch Party Mega Blitz! Go here for more info!
My Deity’s Soulmate is going on tour with RABT Tours from June 12-July 21. 17 spots are still open. I’m super excited! Will post more in the future.
Also, back to Al. He went to the Silicon Valley Comic Con and showed off my books at a booth. 1 copy of each was sold and he sent me a photo of a fairy holding Deity’s Soulmate. There will be a guest post by Al in the future about the Con. ^_^ I’m hoping that I would be able to be at the next event. Couldn’t go myself because my son wouldn’t let me go. He loves his mommy. Super proud!
So yeah. Been one busy month. Me trying to catch my son’s beautiful smile. Working my day job. Promoting my novels, helping out with tours and emailing bloggers to say thank you for being part of the RABT Book Tours!
