October is almost over, but not without a visit to the pumpkin patch!

October is not only the time where pumpkin spice everything is in full throttle, but it is also the perfect time to go to the AZ State Fair.

After about 12 hours of labor, baby CJ was born!

Phoenix Zoo is one of the many places that are family friendly in the Phoenix valley area.

Throughout the pregnancy, I researched about everything I could think of, from prenatal diet to how long labor can last. It’s all fun and whatnot until you realize it’s almost time!

The newest attraction in the Phoenix area is the OdySea Aquarium, located on Via De Ventura right off loop 101 in Scottsdale.

After my first official OB/GYN appointment where my pregnancy became official, it was time to get down to business. Being my first pregnancy, I had no idea what was coming ahead.

When husband and I found out I was pregnant, I had been off birth control for 6 months already but we weren’t stressing about it. Needless to say, we couldn’t be happier to be first-time parents!
