Bear is five.

It’s crazy to think five years ago, I won the lottery.

That’s exactly how I felt when Is aw Bear for the very first time. It honestly felt like I won the lottery. Life couldn’t have gotten any better.

I just love this little boy so much. He’s my world, my encourager, my coach, one of my best friends, and he’s just an amazing kid.

I love him so.


I can’t wait to see what his future will bring.

Happy Birthday, Bear. I wish you love, success, happiness, and a wonderful life. My beautiful child.


Today I have a four-year old


It’s crazy to think four years ago, I gave birth to one of the most amazing persons ever. Like ever.

Motherhood has been a challenge, no doubt. A lot of ups and quite a few downs. But I can’t imagine my life without him.

He brings a smile to my face when I’m down. He makes me see the bright side of things. He’s my inspiration when I don’t have any. He’s the reason I keep going and want to do better.

To My Beautiful Bear, Happy Birthday. I love you always.

Father and Son

I took these pictures of Bae and Baby Bae over a week ago. I’m not a professional photographer by any means, but hey, I’m rather impressed by how they turned out!

Feeling a tad bit better. 
Up we go!
A bit higher! 
And down we go! 

I really love capturing moments like this. I used my hubby’s camera, a Fuji, if anyone’s wondering. Shout-out to the hubs, for the awesome editing he put into the pics!

Bear the Supermodel

Well, no, not really. But you have to admit my kid is pretty photogenic.

Last weekend during #streetmeetLA, Bear was photographed by child photographer, Tina Clara. She took so many amazing shots of him, I honestly don’t have a single favorite. Here are some samples of her wonderful work:

School Pictures

It’s occurred to me that I’ll never really posted Bear’s school pictures before. These came out pretty good! But honey, let me tell you…getting this kid to keep still and smile took a lot more effort than I expected it to!

People keep telling me and Maks to put Bear into modeling. We are contemplating it when he’s older and he wants to do it (I honestly don’t have time or the want to be a stage mom right now). After trying to coax my kid into staying still and smiling, I’m not sure if that’s a path I want to take! LOL

But for now, check out Bear’s school pics! So bae.
