Rest in Peace, Dr. Khan. 

It was a very selfless act to give your life to help so many people and I hope  others are inspired by your courage. 

Always smiling! He is one of the happiest babies I’ve ever met. Anakin was a grump until he discovered mirrors and would only smile at himself -_-

Archer had to have additional PKU testing today.I think he will be alright. I’m about to steam my placenta and I hope it will help me with my depression and anxiety problems. They seem to have intensified and it’s really sucky. 

I picked up my placenta today! I’m excited to make it into powder. Yeah, yeah, you think it’s gross. bye.

One of the meals I had in the hospital. Remember when I said that Tre and I would get a steak dinner and a cake? Saint Rose stopped doing that two years ago. I was kind of sad, because the best cake is the kind you don’t have to bake. I don’t like eating steak, so I was ok with not having it. Tre was kind of bummed out though. 

This was not enough for me, because I was trying to establish my milk supply. Tre kept going out to get me more food because I was too embarrassed to ask. 

I don’t even know what that is supposed to be. But the veggies were good. I could tell they were previously frozen. I prefer that over canned. We freeze most of our stuff at home. 

Happy to know this sweet little guy ♡ Archie is 2 weeks old today. He still doesn’t fit in newborn clothes. But, he eats a lot. He will be newborn sized soon. 

Archer hasn’t cried since the day he was born. If he needs something he just does one loud shout. It’s the opposite of Anakin, who cries for silly reasons STILL. I’m glad Anakin is a crybaby, because it means that I know something is wrong and I can help him. Even if it’s trivial. 

Archer is so sweet, and I imagine he is going to be a very loving person. He does a lot of “smiles”, but I think it means he farts a lot.  (;

We had a Skype session with his grandparents, and they were really happy. They’re coming here in September. We’re all very excited. 

The boxes in the back are dialysis stuff. There’s nothing I can do about that. They’ll be gone when Tre gets his transplant. 

I’d like to apologize for the post that I made earlier. It’s deleted now. I was taking hydrocodone for post partum pain. I took it at the wrong time because I set my clock wrong. I’m allergic to codine, and this was not a great way to find that out!   I wasn’t in my right mind when I made that post. I also got lost driving home and ended up at my dad’s old house, where the even happened. So I was also really upset about that to begin with. 

I don’t like responding to anonymous hate, because it usually does not bother me. I’ll try to keep my blog a positive place for now on. I will also remember to tag my triggering posts. I’m really sorry to the people that I upset. I am very and truly sorry, it really upsets me when people post disturbing things and don’t say that it can upset people. I am very ashamed I did that and won’t again. 

I do think it’s important to mention that I was sexually assaulted as a teen and am happy as an adult. I don’t think it was necessary to pretty much out the person that did it. I do think he deserved to go to jail, but there isn’t much I can do now.

I feel like an old person because I think Seinfield is funny now. When I was like 6 or 7, my dad was obsessed with the show and would watch it all the time. He lived with a roommate that had a scary dog, so I would stay in my dad’s room and watch Seinfied with him. I thought the show was for ~old people~ and so boring. I guess I’m old and boring now. 

Lauren Conrad vs Allure Magazine

image

For years teens and twenty somethings have been keeping up with Lauren Conrad. In 2004, she was best known as the star of the reality show “Laguna Beach”. Later, she would go on to star in the pseudo reality show “The Hills”. Now, she is an entrepreneur with trades like fashion design, author of both fiction and nonfiction, and many philanthropic efforts. 

Conrad recently took to twitter and shared that Allure magazine has recently referred to her as “basic”.image

With the success of colombusing musicians like Kreyshawn and Miley Cyrus, basic is not something a woman wants to be called. However, I think there is NOTHING wrong with being basic. I actually think it’s a good thing.

We need basic girls to get some shine. Without basic girls, how would anyone now that Essie’s Ballet Slipper looks good on every skin tone? Would anyone but a basic girl tell you to put cucumbers in water to enhance the taste? This is my message to the Lauren Conrads of the world. Continue quoting Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and keep on having sleepovers and cookie baking parties if it makes you happy! Also, at the end of the day, everyone needs something from us basics .

Also, not every single girl wants to be on the cutting edge of fashion. Not every girl wants to be boho-chic. Some girls like having style that is timeless and classic. I am disappointed in Allure because Lauren has been on the cover of their magazine more that once and still thought it would be cool to be snarky about someone that has made them money.

I know Allure isn’t necessarily a fashion magazine, but I believe that “basics” should not be ridiculed in magazines. Anyone that knows anything about fashion had to learn “the basics” first. Sure, there are people in the fashion world that will be remembered for being offbeat, like Talitha Getty and the risk taking Rihanna. But, people like Audrey Hepburn and Donna Karan do have their place in fashion history and they’re known for their “basic” style. Also, can we talk about the nerve of a women’s magazine publishing an article that literally breaks women down into four groups? Gross.

Do you think Allure should apologize to Lauren? 

PS: Vanilla bath products are the whiz! Remember when Sephora used to give birthday cake bubble bath to the birthday girl?

Still pretty fat after baby haha
