Bible Verse of the Day: Keeping God First

Thursday, May 6, 2010

Yeah. We Have Been Away Too Long!

Ever since Zakiah has been walking at the March, our lives have definitely not been the same. Walking brings on a whole new set of adventures for Zakiah, challenges for mommy, and even more opportunities for us both to really get out and do things outside the house.

This girl LOVES to walks and run and walk and run. She loves to chase mommy and daddy and loves when we chase her too. She is so full of giggles and laughter when on her own two feet. She keeps me on edge most times.

I miss blogging and I miss my blogger friends. Life has taken over for the moment so I haven't had as much time to keep my blog updated. I have a million things running through my mind and a girl running a million times back and forth from the kitchen pantry to the couch. I have been really focused on taking better care of myself. I am tired of being heavier than I have ever been so ever since April 1st, I have been exercising at least 5 to 6 times a week and went down from 173 to 165 pounds. My goal is to be at least 160 by my birthday next month. My ultimate goal is to get down to 135-140 by the end of this year.

I also got back into grad school to finish my Masters this fall! So I am mentally preparing for my return.

Still looking for employment. Haven't been as consistent with my search like I want to because of things going on but I have been looking and know I will be employed sometime this year because my God is more than able.

I am looking into day care and it is a tedious process. Plus day care is so friggin expensive. Crazy! But once again, my God is more than able.

Ok, there is so much I want to say but I need to go back to sleep. I miss everyone and want to let you know that we are ok! I am still taking pictures and video clips of Zakiah everyday so I am not missing a beat. Even though Zakiah is my baby, she really acts like a toddler to me ever since she started walking. She is joy to watch grow and I am so grateful to be able to spend the first year of her life with her. I might not get this chance again in the future so I am cherishing this experience to the fullest.

Gosh, time to plan for her first birthday next month! Bananas! Home girl will soon be stuffing cake in her mouth AND saying bye to the booby for ever. Bittersweet.

Happy early first Mother's Day to all the first time mommies and happy early Mother's Day to all the seasoned mommies out there! Hope Sunday will be very special to all of us.

I am not making anymore promises when I will update again but hope not to be away for a whole month again.

Take care!


  1. Yay you're alive! ;) I've missed you!!

  3. Hello there! I just came upon your blog and have become your latest follower! I know it will be a lot with school, but GOOD FOR YOU for wanting to get your Masters! Before you know it you will graduate and you will be so happy you did it. When I went for my Masters it seemed like it took forever, BUT now it has been ten years since my graduation and I am so happy! Good luck to you! Visit me at Mama's Little Chick!

  6. Hello! I'm not sure how I came across your blog - first, Camille is my name too! I've never seen its meaning listed as unblemished - I love that! Your daughter is beautiful. I read a bit of your blog and how/why you started it - I admire your walk, holding your head up high through the ups and downs. You have a strong, beautiful spirit, and God sees all that you're doing in your life and is proud of you. Finally, have you ever read any Anne Lamott? If not, I think you'd love her books! Traveling Mercies, Operating Instructions, Grace (Eventually) and Plan B are some of my favorites!

  7. You have a lovely child and you sound like a great mom!
