Since baby has arrived I haven’t been able to blog as much as I would like. But lately it’s been pulling on me to really start writing in my blog again. I used to have one, but decided to start a different one since being a new mommy and wife is vastly different than my life 3 years ago.
So who am I and why am I wasting your time? I’m Alex new mommy to Phoenix Alexander Troy (yeah we’re those weird name people). He’s 5 1/2 months old, the light of my life, the cause of my sleep less nights, rumbly baby body, and perma-smile. Phoenix is the cutest baby (my blog, so I get to be totally biased) I’ve ever seen.
Edit: Phoenix is now 2. He still is the cutest toddler … preschooler (what is he anyway?) He’s still the light of my life, but thankfully no longer the cause of sleepless nights. And that body…She’s back.
I’m married to Shawn Campbell, who’s a music producer for major labels. Records of note: Missy Elliott-Ching a ling and Karina Pasian-First Love & Cry. Recently we just found out he was nominated for a Grammy for Karina Pasian. And we are extremely excited about what that could turn in to be. We’ve been together going on 3 years now and married a little over a month. I really love him
Edit: Shawn is now currently working on a new artist who is signed to Atlantic Records. And is at the highest point of his career ever. It is completely amazing. His name is Cody Simpson and if you click this link you can read more about him. Shawn and I have been married now 19 months. I do still really love him. You can read more of our story here.
I stay home with Phoenix AND work from home doing short sales for a real estate company. Working from home is much more challenging then working outside of the house. There are admittedly a lot of days where I don’t get to shower until 2 because work is calling and Phoenix is screaming for break fast. But I do love it because it allows me to be able to feel like a “grown up” and allows me to be able to be with Phoenix every day all day. But thankfully his Yaya lives only a few minutes away and is a life saver when the emails and calls are piling up.
Edit: I still work from home. But because I am focusing so much on blogging its getting harder and harder to work. Most days if I haven’t showered its because I’ve been online trying to be a social media tycoon.
I hope to be able to spend a few minutes blogging before the baby wakes (hehehe) but lets face it when you have an infant who sometimes sleeps in 30 minute intervals and you have to figure out how to fold laundry, cook dinner, pee and try and look some what presentable before hubby arrives home blog ging may not be a top priority. So I apologizes now if a lot of what I say is a ram bling of words that don’t make sense or are even spelled correctly…forgive me…I’m trying
Edit: When I originally titled this blog it was because there is so much stuff that we as mothers try to get done in those few precious nap time moments. Like shower, pee, put makeup on, blog, respond to emails, have a conversation with your husband, have sex! etc. But mid-way into blogging I realized I often screamed at my husband “Turn the music down before the baby wakes!”.
I’m still trying to get it all done though….before the baby wakes!
Until my next 10 minutes!
