Taking care of myself, because if I don’t take of myself how am I expected to take care of my children, husband and career.

Baby Development: Yameen is 3 months old

I’m a bit late in doing this because Yameen’s is almost 4 month old again but I figured it would be awesome to check on his development later on, when he is older and I have forgotten everything that’s happened in his first year of his life.
