6 Years and Counting

Thursday, May 28, 2015

Today Luis and I are celebrating our 6 year wedding anniversary! We have been together a total of 11 years and I couldn't be happier! I am a women in love with my husband and the life we have made together. Luis makes me laugh every day and we literally talk about everything. Over the years we have learned that laughing and communicating is the key to maintaining our marriage so great. I can honestly say he is the one person in the world I never get tired of being around and in fact never get enough of. He really goes above and beyond for me and shows me daily how much he loves me. I know our future together is going to be filled with even more love and adventure. He is such a wonderful father to our boys and an example of what a true man should be. I am so proud to call him my husband . I pray that our marriage continue to be blessed and we continue to bring out the best in each other. I want us to raise our boys setting the example of what a real marriage is all about. We have never given up on each other, even in the worst moments of our marriage we have stood by each other knowing that our vows were stronger than any issue we've encountered. I know being married to this man has made me grow in so many ways and I believe that that is how you know you are with the person you're truly meant to be with, you just become better without even realizing it! I'm so glad I met him when I did, although sometimes I wish it would have been sooner. 
To Luis, you are the best part of my day, Thank you for 6 wonderful years of marriage. I love you beyond words and look forward to the rest of our lives together! 


Times Flying!

Monday, May 25, 2015

Josiah turned 2 weeks yesterday and I can't even believe it! When I was waiting for him to get here it literally felt like FOREVER until that special day. Now it feels like he was born forever ago and time is flying by. I am trying to keep up with time, but everyday feels like it ends too quickly. He is growing so quickly and  all of us love him to death! Abram and Eli can't get enough. Unfortunately I've been having them keep their distance because they both have been sick this week. Abram picked up a bug at school and brought it home. Its horrible timing! I feel so bad because they love kissing him and hugging him, it's so tough on them to stay away. I constantly have to remind them they're sick and they have to wait to get better. So sad.  Today I started coughing and feeling sick too! Ugh, I can't stand being sick! Luckily Josiah nurses all day and breast milk has great antibodies so I really hope and pray he does not get sick. 

Yesterday we had a family get together because my mom's sister in Honduras passed away. We all went to show our support to my momma and spend time mourning with her. She was very grateful to have us there. 
My niece had a baby in February and she had yet to meet Josiah so they had their first little encounter. Its so cute to see how a 3 month old can be so observant. Her name is Kalypso, and she was very impressed with Josiah. It was really cute! At times I can't wait for Josiah to be that age, but at the same time I want him to stay a little newb! I love him so much! I really didn't realize how much love a mother's heart can hold. My boys are my world and I couldn't be more happy with my life at this time.
Happy Memorial Day!

My little angel

Mother's Day was a seriously memorable day for me. I woke up at 6 am to my water breaking! My original scheduled date was May 11th, but Josiah couldn't wait one more day. I was so surprised and I was even hesitant to call the Dr since I had 3 false alarms already! However after an hour of waiting I was certain my water had broken and this baby was in fact coming! 

We headed to the hospital, after my best friend got there to stay with our boys. I felt anxious to leave my boys, I hugged and kissed them as much as I could before leaving. Abram was really worried about me, he kept telling me he hoped I was ok. I felt so bad to leave him with that worry. Eli was fine, he was his normal happy self. My sister was going to stop and pick them up on the way to the hospital, so they could meet Josiah right after birth as well. 

After arriving, I met the the Dr who would be doing my c- section, since my regular Dr was not on call. It kinda made me sad that both Abram and Eli had been delivered by the same Dr and Josiah would not be. She was great though, I loved her personality and did not make me feel uneasy at all. 

Time seemed to go by quickly and before I knew it I was in the operating room. My nightmare began at this point. The anesthesiologist doing my spinal tap had to insert the needle in 3 different places of my spine because he could not get to the right area. It was so painful, I was in tears. When I had it done for Abram and Eli it was a breeze and went by so fast, but this time it felt like forever! It was such a bad experience, my back still feels bruised. To top it off the anesthesia took so long to actually kick in I could feel everything the Dr was doing, but i did not want to get put to sleep so I dealt with the pain until I got to see my beautiful baby. He was perfect! I absolutely loved him! After I saw he was safe and healthy I told them I could no longer handle the pain and the anesthesiologist put something in my IV to make me feel like I was somewhere else other than an operating table until they were done.

 They wheeled me to recovery where my family was visiting Josiah. It was so wonderful to see my 3 boys right after going through all that pain. Abram and Eli were happy that Josiah was finally here. They stared at him and asked so many questions. It was awesome to see my boys so interested in what was going on.  I couldn't believe the day I anticipated for so long was finally here, though I went through a lot of pain that day, it really was worth it! 

We have been home for  a week now and I do get tired and at times the noise is a bit overwhelming, but I wouldn't have it any other way. This will be my last baby so I am soaking in every minute of his little antics. In fact he has been a really good baby so far. He loves nursing and sleeping and hates his diaper being dirty. Haha. I love him and am really glad we are all adjusting pretty well to our little angel.
