Not Your Average Teen Mom

Hi! My name is Stephanie. I’ve been blogging for 4 years and decided last year during the beginning of my pregnancy to create a blog specifically on my experience with being a pregnant teen and now a teen mom to my daughter Hazel. It’s for others to discover and see from the actual teen parent view. Β My blog consists of Hazel’s development, photos, videos, my pregnancy, answered questions on advice and more. There are various links for you to explore to specifically find what you want to read or look at. Enjoy !

    One of my good friends is the captain of one of the fire stations here in Tucson! So we finally had time to go and check how it all works out!

    I know for me, my allergies have been making me not leave the house,miss out on events, you name it. I’ve even had to double up on my allergy medication!
    Now I think Hazel is getting bothered by our high pollen count as well, she’s getting the runny nose and itchy eyes!
    We went to go play at the park and play in the water splash pad just so we could get out for once since I’ve had to be stuck in the house!
    She was 100% committed to playing and having a good time even with her nose!
    Tonight though as I’m laying her down I applied Vicks and right as I had a wad of it on my hands she hit the glob and smeared it on her lips and cheeks.
    Oh man is it hell right now lol
    I tried getting it all off! But the Vicks helped her breathe so well she’s out!
    For now… 😳

    Here is through the eyes of Hazel,in her bedroom.
    This is what she does when I’m sleeping. I ended up crawling into her bed so I can keep an ear out for her while I napped a little longer.
    I find it so beautiful and different because you don’t realize what they see!

  • HOW IS THERE A BABY IN THERE?!

    OH MAN OH MAN. This was a interesting conversation with hazel. A good friend of mine is pregnant and im trying to teach hazel how to not be as rough when they play. So i decided to say it, there is a baby in her tummy.BOOM! Hazels face explained it all. Ive broken it down to her in the past that she grew inside my stomach and i ended up getting a big big belly! due to my friend not showing yet hazel is super confused and now thinks me her and everyone else in the block has a baby in their tummy. She went to her daycare the other day and when i picked her up the daycare was 50/50 on if i was pregnant or not! had to debunk that myth and explain that i was just trying to make her a little more careful with those who ARE pregnant. PHEW! Here is a throwback thursday of when i was in my last week of pregnancy! *to see more clearly click to see full post*

  • Co sleeping snores

    I don’t know if I’m the only parent that does this but there is something so soothing and relaxing about laying next to them when they are sleeping,it takes me back to when she was a baby and things were so complicated but so much simpler! We would always snuggle,latch,be up in the night with diapers and most of all I loved the little baby smell she had.
    Hazel co sleeps with me on my days off but even though I have a ton of things to finish around the house I just want to stay next to her.
    Part of me loves to just grab her cute hand and hold it near my heart.
    We have such chaos now where I’m always so busy and so is she.
    My whole world stops when I hold her.
    I don’t want this to go away! ❀

    To put some incentive to brushing teeth we got a printable one and added some magnet tape with some foam cut outs!

  • Nothing is more relieving than that Hazel is now fully aware of her lactose/dairy allergy.
    Anywhere we go that involves food(even the store or parties) she lets others know she has a lactose/dairy allergy to make sure she doesn’t get sick! Yay!!!

  • Where is the pause button?

    I don’t know where to begin when it comes to the lovely time I’ve been having with a dash of chaos.
    The three - four year old transition mark is NUTS. Where the hell did all this sass come from? She’s so good at getting out of things and also being sneaky!
    I give her credit in some ways because you know I’m definitely impressed!
    I’ve also noticed she’s enjoying mocking my behavior and habits which is bound to happen.
    She always sees me cleaning so now she’s starting to clean with me (dawn and vinegar).
    Not only mocking and observing me but her older after school program pals.
    Im not ready for the attitude of a elementary school quite yet!!!! 😭
    One thing Hazel has been super prompt about is needing to know the order of things.
    She will always ask me which order we are going to do things and what we will be doing!
    I’m the same way, I need to have a plan!
    But if things go out of plans she’s like WTF?!?!?
    This is where I break down “things happen even when we don’t expect them” talk.
    It’s already April and her FOURTH birthday is in August.
    Where is the pause button?

    Someone is learning how to ride their new bike they got from santa!!!!! 😍

  • Hazel Hazel Hazel,
    She’s already gunna be 3 and a HALF next month.
    She’s learning how to ride her bike and it’s amazing! Teaching the coordination can be tough but we are getting it!
    She also has been even more communicative.
    She’s picking up on things and their uses just by observing.
    For example we were eating out and she saw the use and purpose of a take out box.
    “Mommy can I please have one of those? I need to save my food for later.”
    WHERE DOES THAT COME FROM? Kids are so adaptable it’s scary and amazing!
    Her hair is also starting to change into my original color and it looks so beautiful!!!
    Plus, Hazel is learning it’s of Spanish! Granted it’s choppy but im so proud of her!
    Go Hazel go! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‡
