I'm Lorena, a 23 year old stay at home mother to my little girl, Iris Sophia. I'm married to her wonderful father, Ricky who serves in the United States Navy. We're from San Diego, California and currently stationed at NAS Whidbey Island. I blog about my life as a mother, a military family, and my interests which include hair, makeup, nails, and John Mayer.

My husband comes home every night reeking of jet fuel but complains about the smell of bleach when I clean. pft.

I fucking HATE that I was unable to breastfeed. I still want to cry about it sometimes. Please tell me I am not the only one who has/had this problem?

Although our circumstances were probably different I definitely cry over the fact that I couldn’t breastfeed.

Same.

Ricky was feeding Iris brussel sprouts today. And she liked them!

Ninja day? Pshhh . . look closely, and you’ll think twice aboutarguing that ninjas are more covert than our U.S. Navy SEALs.
I literally find her like this every morning and after every nap. Sleeping alone doesn’t phase her.
Anonymous: Would you consider yourself a crunchy mom?

No. I don’t really consider myself to be a certain kind of mom. I’m just a mom! I’m not even completely sure what a ‘crunchy mom’ is. I mean, I tried breastfeeding, that lasted about two months. She was just used to her bottle and would not latch so we gave up. I hate myself everyday for it. We bed shared up until about 8 months but she was going to bed at around 12-1am and waking up at least twice every night. She sleeps in her own room now from 8pm-9am every night. I miss having her in bed with us and sometimes I think about bringing her back but I know that would screw up her schedule which we worked so hard on getting her used to it. I do wear her. We love it! We cloth diaper. We’ve only been doing it for about a month but I love it. I wish I had started sooner. We co-showered for a while but now that she walks, she tries to get up and falls so its hard to get myself clean while keeping an eye on her. 

I just do what works best for us. I don’t label myself to be a certain type of mom.

Anonymous: If you had a son what would you name him?

My husband picked the ugliest boy names but in the end we agreed on Lucas Rei if Iris had been a boy. I also like Ezra, thanks to PLL.

Iris sleeps alone every night. She had more trouble sleeping through the night when she slept in bed with us than sleeping in her crib in her own room. She sleeps from 8-9 every single night. And she has a lot more space to move around because she moves around A LOT.
