Happy Birthday Grandma!

I know Im a little late because her birthday was this past Saturday, but better late than never right?..Justin's Grandmother just had her 90th birthday on Saturday and I just wanted to dedicate this post to her.

She is the shortest, sweetest, funniest, loveable, most honest lady you will ever meet. I'm very blessed to have gained her as my grandma and be related to such a wonderful person.

We all had a great dinner with her on Saturday and in addition to the festivities, the whole family got up early sunday morning to go do yard work at her house. Unfortunately I didnt get any pictures of that, but it was quite hilarious seeing me get down and dirty and plant some flowers and small bushes for the first time! yeah, yeah I know I should know all of this stuff by now, but we live in a town house and hubby does all of our yard work!... oh well it was for a great cause and I had a lot of fun doing it!

The simplicities of life entails wonderful memories such as this one that we celebrated, a very Happy 90th Birthday with Grandma. This memorable event is a reflection for all of us to keep close to our hearts what is most meaningful , the gift of life. The gift of life is a blessing and so is sharing our lives with the ones we love.

Cheers to you Grandma and for your loving heart shared with all of us!!!.

9 M0NTHS!!!

YES! our little bundle of teething, pooping, laughing,crawling,standing, falling cutie is 9 months old! her first year is going by so fast! (I know..broken record, but very TRUE)..I cant believe there is 3 more months till her first b-day!, which btw, I already have most of it planned..(but that's another post).
She has been doing so many new things lately and everyday amazes all of us. She is such a joy to be around.

What she's been up to:
. Babbling about everything! she says dada, and mama, but  mainly dada, which of course melts daddy's heart! he is always saying how she is such s daddy's girl (which is very true)
. She loves music and loves to dance, she also tries to snap her finger while dancing (little diva:)
.She puts her hands up if you say "arriba" ("up" in spanish)
.Finally sleeping thru the night again, but I really hope I dont jinx oursleves as Im writting this
. She is wearing pretty much 9-12 month old clothes
. She is still wearing size 3 Diapers but I think we might make the change to size 4 here soon.
. Her appointment is actually tomorrow so I dont know her STATS, but I would say that right now she is probably weighing around 18lbs.
. Eating solids three times a day and breast milk 3-4 times, she has also started eating some table food, like pasta, cheerios, some ripe small pieces of fruit (which she loves)


and here is a picture of Kayla in my belly at 9 months!
just a couple of weeks before I delivered

Happy Mother's Day!

Nothing can be compared to the strong bond between a mother and her children.
There are clearly not enough words to express how much I love my mom and how grateful I'm to have her in my life, I love her today and everyday. I never realized how much a mother could love their children until I became one. Being a mom has tought me so much, specially about all of the unconditional love that you have for your kids. I know sometimes it can be a hard job but its the best job to have! 
Happy Mothers day all the beautiful  Mothers out there

Lions and Tigers and Bears OH MY!

I was a chaperone at Austin's school field trip to the Zoo yesterday and it was so much fun!!! I learned so much from this Field Trip, Like the fact that my little man has a tiny crush on his teacher :) he kept telling me how she is so pretty, it was so sweet. I also  learned that he is already a little heartbreaker!!! One of the other mom Chaperones was telling me how her daughter talks about Austin all the time and how she like him, but apparently Austin likes one of the other girls in his class.. Oh the Drama already at the age of 6!!! heheh

Yes this is a chimp, just hanging :)

New Job & New Shades..

Sooo, after a really long and thoughout decision; Justin and I have decided for many different reason at this time, that I would be staying at home with the kids! Technically my last day of work was last Friday, but since my work and I Love each other so much :) I decided to help them out part-Time until the end of the month.

Im super excited to be able to Stay at home with my kids, but at the same time I'm really sad to stop working. I guess it's bittersweet because I really love my work and all of my co workers.

So at this time my new title will be "mommy" reporting to Miss Kayla and Austin!

P.S check out her new shades:)

                                 Just enjoying the weather at my brothers game!
