I melt.

A smile takes but a moment, but the memory of it lasts forever.

We just started swimming class again. I tried to take True when he was around two years old, but it did not go so well! He wouldn't let go of my neck and would hardly go to the teachers. But now he is the big 4, and lately he has been having a ball in his grandparents spa. I worry that needs proper skills, I think it is very important that his love of water and skills are equal.
Trev and I take him to his lessons together, we watch his every move, we cheer him on and give him direct eye contact when he bursts from the water proudly showing us he can go under for a few moments. It makes us so happy to see his confidence building.
I started to notice today we are one of the few set of parents there and not staring at our phones the entire time. Crazy huh! I am so glad I can set all my attention on True. I love summer days and I love my kid, and I don't want to miss a thing! These moments are so wonderful. He is growing so fast!

Natalie's {Dr. Seuss Inspired} Baby Shower

Natalie is one of the most giving, kind and selfless people I know. She is going to give birth to her son any day now. I wanted to do something special for her to let her know that I truly appreciated how great of a friend she is to me. She is so supportive of me, I am so blessed to have her in my life. Natalie's kids room will be a Dr Seuss theme, so we just went with it! I used an old Dr Seuss book for a streamer, Erika used 3 pages of the book to make the pin that says "Benny's Mama". I designed the cupcake toppers by using images on the web. Everything was very easy to do! Not expensive at all just time consuming. Everything was DIY!
I arranged this suprise baby shower in 4 days, with a lot of help! I wish I could of took more detailed photos but I was trying to be a hostess and enjoy all of our friends who came.
Food was catered by pappadoz pizza in Carson . Can I just say the was AMAZING!! So good! If you haven't tried it. Go! It's fantastic.
My friend (thanks to Nat) Erika Quinones helped me with the decor and baking. We had a fantastic time, Without her I could not have brought my vision to life. Once we get together, we come up with some cool stuff :)
My friend Whitney helped me make the chocolate dipped oreos & marshmallows.
I think Natalie was really surprised when she walked through the door to see all of us! We had an amazing evening.

A few of my favorites of Angel's maternity images. She brought along her beautiful daughter Amara. I was instantly smitten!
