6th & 7th month of life- mother and author combo

He’s 7 months old and is absolutely adorable. ^_^

Let’s see, for the past two months, it’s been a trial. We went on his first vacation. He behaved beautifully! It ended on a sour note, though and you can read here why. There are photos from vacation on my Instagram. ^_^

I didn’t post about his 6th month because it’s been really hectic around here. Work has been busy every day- too many things that had to go out and stuff. There was a couple of bonfires, a couple of new outfits, and a liking to play with those toys that he can reach for. He still doesn’t sit on his own, but he’s trying to get up. Little cutie!

In his 7th month, we had a couple of sad events. Our dear cat passed away. You can read about her here. Then my mother got sick and then me. Yikes!

In his 7th month of life, he started to eat solids- he’s not a fan of squash. He’s okay though when it’s mixed with apples. He’s sometimes okay with banana, oatmeal and peach combo and he tried mixed vegetables. He crawled a little bit and gifted me with many many sweet smiles and chin kisses. ^_^ A life of a new mother is rewarding. Those smiles and laughs are gifts…cheesy but true.

Now onto me being an author/blogger.

The novella is finished and edited! It has an awesome surprise in there and I got to say that this one, you would WANT to BUY in PRINT. 😉 I’ll let you guys know soon about when it’s coming out and the fun Blog party that I’m going to have for it.

Both tours have ended a month ago. You can check them out here:

Seven Hours: Challenge Accepted Virtual Book Tour ended!

Also, I went back and edited a collaboration with my bestie!

You can read the novel at: The Liar’s Blood. A whole novel for free!

It has vampires, romance, idiocy, stalkers, sexy blondes, wild redheads, and more! Leave some comments and let us know how much you guys like it. Book 2 is in the works! I didn’t forget about my flames story, it’s just been hectic. So for now, enjoy this awesome work that has been done in Collaboration and wait for the novella to come out.

Thank you!

5th month of life- mother and author combo

He’s 5 months old and is absolutely adorable. ^_^

Let’s see this month, I was able to take my baths and took him to my friend’s birthday party. We didn’t stay long because my friend invited a reggae musician. He wasn’t bad, he was actually really good but the music was so loud that my son was trying to cover his ears with his hands. Though, his actions were cute, it would have been bad to stay so we left. At least we were able to say – Happy Birthday!

He met a couple more people during his 5th month – including 2 babies. He didn’t care for the first baby that he’d met but maybe it’s because he was sleeping? On his 5th month day, he met the second baby. She’s going to be 1 year old in one week. I already told the mother that our kids will be dance partners because I want my son to study ballroom. She agreed, knowing that when it comes to ballroom dancing, it’s always hard to find dance partners. ^_^

Oh, and he chooses his outfits! Every time, I give him two options between onesies and the one that he grabs is the one that he wears. ^_^ So far, he has two favorites – one with raccoons and one that is yellow with a phrase – Little Genius. Cute!!!

He still can’t sit up on his own but he’s having fun rolling over which is cool to watch. Also, he has a really cute and touching laugh. I hope to remember it, but I’m afraid that because he’s growing so fast that I will forget many cute things he does. Ugh. Problems of a mother!Toys. He’s grabbing on to rattles and small toys. He still likes biting on towels. It’s absolutely adorable. He’s also finding annoying that he can’t sit up. I guess, he’s tired of always being on his back though he does have tummy time. I took some awesome photos but being Russian and believing in superstitions, I think I will not share them yet.

Now onto me being an author/blogger.

I wrote a novella! The only thing that I’m going to say about it is- that it’s finished, went through two rounds of edits, read by two beta readers, edited by two copy editors, and will be sent out to an editor sometime this week! I’m not going to tell you guys on when it will be published, but I’m hoping for August 2017! SURPRISE!

Deity’s Soulmate Virtual Book Tour is going well! Got 2 awesome reviews and checked out a lot of cool bloggers. My pinterest account has a board dedicated just to the tour!

Seven Hours Tour is coming up!

seven hours tour

The author/blogger, who’s in charge is Aimee Brown. Her novel is coming out on August 2nd and I will be blogging about it on the 4th- Little Gray Dress! Here’s the link to the Seven Hours page on her site. Check out it out and explore her website! And here’s Aimee’s author website – http://authoraimeebrown.com/

A little trivia: I started the novella on a whim after reading Aimee’s novel. Her writing made me want to try my hand at more of chick-lit and there you have it…a novella about a Cat. 😉

Anyway, before I go –

Tomorrow is an exciting day for a lot of bloggers! The Launch Party is tomorrow and I’m one of the hosts. It’s one of my longest blog posts and it was very fun helping R&R Book Tours! For more info – go here!

Thank you for reading. I hope that all is well in your lives! What are you guys up to?

 

4th month of life- mother and author combo

He’s 4 months old and still adorable. ^_^

There were a couple more baths for me! Thank you to hubby and grandma for helping out.  It may be trivial, a bath, but seriously to a mother that’s better than buying a pair of sexy high heels.

He met a couple more people during his 4th month and we even went over to my mother’s friends house. She gave us a car seat as a gift before he was born and I wanted to thank her and show her that we’re using it. ^_^ Also, he got to meet one of my urban planning professors from university. The professor was one of the best in my time there and so I invited her over and she could make it. She missed the baby shower due to having a cold. He received a couple of new outfits from her and a bath set. He really liked the frog towel puppet. ^_^

Toys. He’s grabbing on to rattles and small toys. He still likes biting on towels. It’s absolutely adorable. He’s also finding annoying that he can’t sit up. I guess, he’s tired of always being on his back though he does have tummy time. I took some awesome photos but being Russian and believing in superstitions, I think I will not share them yet.

Music. He loves it! Here are his favorite toys:

I ordered yesterday another photo album from Shutterfly. Lots of great memories of his 4th month of life.

Guess what? Guess what? Guess what? Guess what?

….

He laughed!!! He first laughed with hubby and weeks later he laughed with me. He likes the sound – chrum. Like when someone is eating. ^_^ Happy kiddo means a happy mommy. Though this made me think:

We need to learn how to laugh. It’s not something that comes easily. Crying though does. Why?

Also, he doesn’t have much of 3-6 months of age clothing and more of 6-9 months. 6-9 months is okay to wear because of the diaper. He’s comfy and I’m happy. I got 6 pages in the album of just his outfits (of course with him wearing them). I believe that in the future he will say – Mommy! I was your doll!

Now, onto the author portion.

One of the virtual tours is live! Schedule is here.

  2. The Curious tale of Gabrielle (Book 1) by Zachary Chopchinski
  3. Crimes against a Book Club by Kathy Cooperman
  4. Dead Wrong by Lee Dobbs
