10th month of life- mother and author combo

He’s 10 months old and is adorable. ^_^

Let’s see, this month was exciting.

My son tried multi-grain cereal and rice cereal. By themselves, he doesn’t like them so we give him one spoon of cereal, one spoon of fruit puree- usually pears or bananas. We tried giving him potatoes and carrots but since it didn’t have salt or sugar, I don’t think he liked it that much. Need to ask his doc about adding salt or sugar though I don’t think that it’s a good idea.

Still co-sleeping. Hubby sort of accepted it, mainly because now I don’t put my son on his changing pad to sleep and he now sleeps in my arms so hubby got his side of the bed back. There’s a reason for co-sleeping, but it’s private so can’t really share it. For me, it’s because of what happened to me when I was a baby so I want my son to always feel like he’s loved and adored.

He has 5 teeth! I’m still breastfeeding and let me just say – OUCH! I mean most of the time, he’s nice and doesn’t bite but when we play, he sometimes bites me on my fingers, chest, nose….I have sooo many bite marks.

There was a lot more cruising this month!

Oh, a couple of times, he actually fell asleep while I was bouncing him on my knees (during work time). I was like, “you head is tilting.” Looked down. “You’re asleep!” Was interesting and adorable at the same time.

He has a favorite game! He takes a toy- doesn’t matter which and moves it around against the wall. I don’t know why he likes it, but he finds it fun. Him playing below with his car.

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:

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!

My 2017 Reading/Blogging Goals Update

So a couple of updates since my January post about my reading/blogging goals.

A gift of Short Story

Finished!

It took a lot longer than originally planned and I apologize to Nil and the rest. When I created the “A gift of short story,” I was pregnant and excited to be writing because I knew that I wouldn’t be able to read or write as much, but then the last months before my son graced me with his presence, made me very tired. However, all of the short stories have been posted and could be found here.
