My Makeup Routine


3 Months & Counting...





I can't believe she growing up so fast. Last night I was looking at her hospital pictures and couldn't believe how small she was....Goodness! Scarlett's accomplishments this month are pretty outstanding. She is reaching for her feet while laying down, but she can't hold them yet. She sucks her thumb while going to sleep. Keeping her hands/toy/blanket in her mouth while awake. She makes short little sounds...I am waiting for the long stretch of noises and laughter! With her eyes she can follow mommy and daddy when they leave the room (that makes it so hard to leave). She goes to bed around 7pm and sleeps ALL night. During the day she is awake 1-2 hours then takes a 30-45min nap. The Bumbo and Peppa Pig is our friend. Of course she can do a lot more, but those are some milestones that we have reached. As for mommy milestones, the list is shorter. I did let my mom keep her for an ENTIRE day while Caleb and I went to eat and shop! That's right, an entire day. That was HUGE for me. I also became a sickly mommy, but still managed to take care of her (she didn't get sick). Breastfeeding is so much easier now, I don't even think about it. 
I love every single moment of this amazing job. My favorite moment so far is at night. Scarlett and I say our bedtime prayers. God has really blessed our little family and I am so excited that my children (speaking about future children there) are my mission. I have to remind myself I am giving birth to unbelievers, and to show her how a women of faith lives.

2013 Goals

My goals for 2013: 
(I haven't thought about these until right now, so let us see what happens...)

1. Start studying scripture on a more "John MacArthur" commentary level, but in chronological order. My husband and I are thinking about buying his New Testament commentaries this year. If you're thinking, "why is she just thinking about it and not just buying it". Well, check the price on that thing. WHEW! $500, but worth it. Bad Allisen knows that could buy a lot of Lush bath bombs, Laura Mercier makeup, and some TopShop clothes too. I have the Bible in Greek/Hebrew so I am working on that as well (you try reading backwards in another language). If I keep writing on that subject we will be here until 2014. Moving on....
2. Make YouTube videos more consistently. I am now a YouTube Partner (YAY) so I really want to get back into the groove. I have so many ideas for videos and I know exactly what I need to do, but I just get a bit lazy (let's be honest here). I am a SCAD (Savannah School of Creative Careers) student, but you wouldn't be able to tell by my lame videos. I do have a camera picked out for videos, and to use as a nice family camera as well. That will really help due to my other camera breaking. Don't worry, I do not plan to become a photographer like everyone else and their mom. I was going for a DSLR type, but I am really going to take a risk with a Sony NEX-5N (AKA: A poor man's Lecia M9). I will be getting the attachable Canon ring to interchange Canon lenses. Snore, number 3...

In case you were getting bored, here is a picture.

3. Breastfeed for no less than 1 YEAR. So that means I need to make it until September 28th! I can do it!
4. Get healthy and fit! (Of course, like everyone else.) I am doing the Color Run (5k) in Atlanta this year. FUN!
5. Really develop some relationships I have made here in my area. Being young and married really separates you from non-married friends. On top of that, I now have a baby...so that really separates me even more. (You married mommies understand, right?) I have met some women around my age with babies, but I really need to work on strengthening those relationships. It is so easy to just sit and home and stare at my beautiful child all day.


I am sure I could think of some more, but ehhh.... How can I really set goals when I don't know what the future holds. I might have some goals I didn't know I was going to achieve.

Run through the woods and sing loud,
Allisen

OOTD

Skinny High-Rise Jeans, Polka Dots, Ring, and Boots. Comfy, but cute. This is also nursing/mom friendly (most of my outfits are now).
