Samantha Rae Garcia

This is Samantha Rae, the newest member of the Quaintly Garcia Family!  She was fashionably late, arriving on January 30th, 2015 at 12:55 pm (12 days past my due date).  She was 7lbs 14oz and 20 inches long.  We are completely in love with her, and look forward to sharing all her milestones and adventures with you!

Matryoshka Doll Nursery

As of today I am 38 weeks and 3 days pregnant, and according to my check-up yesterday our little princess will be here any day now!  

I've been fascinated with Matryoshka Dolls (Russian Nesting Dolls) for a couple years now, so when we found out we were having a girl I thought it would be a perfect theme for her nursery!  It wasn't an easy theme to work with, but I did manage to find some very adorable items...thank you Etsy.

I began working on Samantha's (we had her name picked out before we even knew she was a girl) nursery for a couple months now and although I doubt she'll actually be sleeping in it anytime soon (she has a co-sleeper in our room), it's pretty much ready for her!

How to get a free Breast Pump!

Yes you read that title correctly.  I didn't believe it myself.  I came across this Pin on Pinterest, and after reading the article I decided to check into it, and I was not disappointed.

The first thing I did after reading the article was call my insurance company, I have Blue Shield of California (HMO).  I called the member number on the back of my card and asked customer service representative if breast pumps are covered under my insurance plan. The representative checked my plan and stated that I was covered by my plan for any breast pump up to $169.  She then gave me a list of 5 approved vendors and their phone numbers (a few of them had websites too). 

I did my research and decided to place my order with Yummy Mummy, their website is great and easy to navigate.  I gave them all of my information including my medical insurance information online.  A week later I received an email stating they were processing my order (this happens once your insurance is verified) and about a week after that I received a shipping confirmation and my pump arrived by UPS 4 days later.  So, if you're in need of a breast pump, I highly recommend checking with your insurance company!
