Yes that's what I am! I thought I would be going back to work sometime in January, but I just can't leave my little baby. And plus, childcare is expensive! We're also probably moving by Oct 2010 so I think it's better for me to stay home and take care of Kailee.
It's completely new to me. Of course being a new mom but also not "working". I feel guilty almost, for not "working". I also feel kinda guilty when I spend our money, it's almost like I shouldn't be touching the money since I'm not making any anymore. I know I've gotta get these thoughts outta my head. I do get more things done than before. The house is cleaner than it's ever been and errands get done sooner. So I think it makes my husbands life a lot easier.
Well I'm not completely stopping working. I still am a Pure Romance consultant. I never had a lot of parties booked but since I can start doing them again I'm really gonna push it. I gotta get some parties booked. Parties are a ton of fun, and it really isn't working, it's more fun than anything. It would be nice to get out of the house and have "adult conversation" for a few hours. If anyone in the Honolulu area want to book a party please contact me. And if anyone would like to order something please go through my website: KristinaSwitzer.PureRomance.com
I also am open to do outcall massage. Probably a few clients a week. Oh yeah! I recently got my certification to teach Infant massage classes, so I'll be having a class sometime in January. So I guess I'll still be "working", just not the traditional 9 to 5.

Not too shabby!
And here's us after:
Hmmm... cute family pic? I don't think so. 1st of all my boobs are up to my neck! I try to keep the girls under control, but man its hard to find a top to wear nowadays! And that shirt my husband is wearing, it's on of the 4 shirts my husband alternates wearing cuz none of his other shirts fit anymore.
So I'm motivated... just gotta find time to workout. Him? Not so much. I try to motivate him but I don't think he's that motivated when he says, "yeah yeah, I know" and then I he's addicted to playing Modern Warfare:
Well anyways this post was just to vent... hopefully I'll have before "after" pictures in a few months. =)
So Troy (the hubby) has been sick for the past 2 days. Stuffy nose and grumpy attitude. And my poor baby Kailee has a stuffy nose too! He's been keeping his distance from her but she still got a little bit of a stuffy nose. I've been using that bulb syringe on her, sucking those boogies out!
I'm starting to get a little stuffy nose too, I better drink another "EmergenC".
I realized that I havent posted any pictures of my beautiful baby girl... I'm not just saying she's beautiful cuz I'm her mom, but she really is! lols Every one says she looks like my hubby Troy and I see it. But I dont see any of me in her, yet. She's got these crazy eyes! They are Greyish Blue, but sometimes they look Greyish Green. She has a little brownish green/hazel in the center. So we're curious to see what her eye color will end up being. Troy and I have dark brown eyes so it would be neat if she has "colored" eyes. So here's a recent pic of her:
She's looking at her daddy... aww so sweet.

I am in love with my Moby Wrap. I'm telling you it's the best baby carrier out there. I can go on and on about how I love it and how I think all moms should have one but better yet let me just direct you to my article that I published on Squidoo.com. Please take a look at it and tell me what you think or go and get your self a Moby Wrap 100% cotton baby carrier
Here's my article
I am excited though because I finished my 1st workout w/ my new EA Active workout game on the Wii. I've started the 30day challenge... it's on easy though but I'm not finding it as easy. I guess it's from not really working out for 9 months! But I have got to get my butt in gear! So we'll see how this goes.
So this Saturday is my 27th birthday. And guess what I get for my bday? My mother in law arrives that day... woop di doo! <---- sarcastic tone... lols So since Troys birthday was on Friday we'll be having a nice dinner sometime this week. we usually do something in the middle for our bdays. My mommy and little bro are coming the 17th. So at least they come to rescue me after 5 days with the MIL. I cant wait! Well better be going now, the little one is waking up!

Well I'm here and gonna give this a shot. Just gonna blog about everyday "adventures". Whether it be about my baby's poopie diaper, my husbands recent addiction to the video game Call of Duty Modern Warfare, or about my flabby post baby belly and how I'm gonna get rid of it.
A little bit about myself: I'm Kristina. Married to my (mostly) wonderful husband Troy for 4 yrs. We just had our beautiful baby girl Kailee Moon on Oct 30th. Her name is pronounced like "KYLEE" not "KAYLEE"! Think of the hospital Kaiser and how you pronounce that. Kai is Hawaiian for Sea/Ocean. So anyways... We live in Hawaii, beautiful!... yet very expensive. So we may move to "the mainland" at the end of next year. I'm a Licensed Massage Therapist and my husband is in the US Navy. I said I would go back to work in January... but I really don't want to go back to work... so that's still up for discussion later with the hubby. I do have a side business, I'm a Pure Romance consultant (I'll blog about that later). Well it's almost 10:30pm and Kailee is still up but looking like she'll drift to sleep soon. I better get going!
