One month

It has been a month since I have not been working, and it feels perfect, I don't have the stress that I had, and I am a more like able person. I do what I like, I cook everyday. Jose likes that he gets home and dinner is done.

Monkey Doodle is doing good, he is very helpful around the house, he put Gaby's diapers in the garbage, he feeds the cat, and even helps me when I am cooking I ask him to bring me something and he gets it for me. We make tents together and study the alphabet. He repeats the letters but I don't think he knows yet what he is doing. Yesterday I was making pizza for lunch and he took the pepperonis and put them all in his mouth, he thought it was hilarious, but I did manage to get some before he ran off for the pizza.

Monkey's Tent. He loved it.

Wannabe Nemo

Last night was my sister High School Graduation, so the whole family was there. My moms mom and her husband,and my step dad's parents. Anyway on the way to the car my grandmother says I have something for Anthony. When it comes to her you have to worry about her giving you things, I am not sure were she gets all this crap, yes crap. She sometimes even picks up stuff from garbages. YUCK! She is a Pack Rat. Anyway Monkey Doodle got the Ugliest Wannabe Nemo, and he is in love with it. I am trying to get rid of stuff and here she is adding to it. I just had to vent.


Quiet Weekend

We had a quiet weekend. Saturday we went to Las Olas Riverfront had pizza at this little pizza place it was so good, then we went Jose's cousins house and watched a movie Children of Men. It was pretty good. Yesterday we stayed home most of the day and Gaby had colic, it was pretty bad. She didn't sleep much during the day only 10 mins at a time then she would wake up screaming, my poor little princess. Last night I found some drops for colic and it worked like a charm. She slept from 8pm-12:30am, she was making up for the time she did not sleep during he day. Today she has been doing great she is taking a nap right now and so is the monkey doodle, we are enjoying the quiet time. That will end pretty soon when the doodle get up.


Pictures of the Princess

I can't wait to play dress up with her.

That's Right.

She's a Little Angel


One Week

My little girl is a week old. She has been great, she wakes up every 3-4 hours to eat. She was a little jaundice but thats going away now, I hate that they have to slice her little foot to get blood, I hate to see my babies in pain, but besides that she has been doing great. When we left the hospital she weight 5lbs 10oz but yesterday she was up to 6lbs 4oz thats a lot. Breastfeeding has been going really well. With Anthony it did not go so well, but this time I think I was more prepared and I have not given her any formula like I did with Monkey Doodle, think that that was a big mistake that I did. Being home has been great I do not miss work at all I love being home cooking and keeping the house clean. I do have to get into a routine, so that I can be more organized.
Monkey Doodle has been doing better than we thought with Gaby, he does try to help. Its very cute, he throws away the diapers in the trash and if he hears her cry he tries to give her the pacifier, its adorable. He gives her kisses and rubs her head. He not comfortable holding her, I have tried to sit him down so he can hold her and he says no, and makes a silly face then runs off.
That has been our first week and it has gone pretty well, I have to say that we are really lucky to have good kids. I am not saying they are perfect because Monkey Doodle does drive me crazy sometimes, like when he found the permanent marker and wrote all over the kitchen cabinets, walls, his high chair and MY D&B Bag. Thats life we can't control everything. I will post more pictures as soon as I upload them to the computer.


I have been tagged

I have never done this before, I have no idea how it will turn out.

Here are the rules

Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Here we go.....

1. We have been home with Gaby for about 24 hours.

2. Anthony is not too happy about the addition to the family, but I am sure he will get used to it. At least he hasn't tried to do anything mean to her.

3. I have bruises on my hands because retarded people tried to put an IV on me, it hurts like hell. On my left hand the front and even my knuckles have bruises, on the right hand they tried to take it from the wrist, and they screwed up that bruise looks really bad my whole wrist is purple. Its nothing like the Mayo Clinic in MN, I guess I was spoiled the first time.

4. I am wondering how I am going to manage this week with two kids and with sleep deprivation.

5. I hope that we can follow our budget so that I don't have to go back to work in three months.

6. I LOVE the show "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", I can not wait till the season starts in the Summer. My supervisor and I would watch the show on Wed. night and talk all morning about it the next day at work and laugh our heads off, it one of those shows you have to watch to understand. Our co-workers used to think we were crazy.

7. I like that most our neighbors are around our age. Jose and I have noticed that they all have dogs and at least one BIG Truck and we have two kids, a cat and a Mazda6. We are the odd balls. lol! But we all get along really well and they all love Anthony to death, and they are very happy about the new baby too.

8. I have to say that I am very happy with my life. I would not change a thing. The only think I have left to accomplish Is finish with my degree, I know that it will be hard with a family but I am determined to do it.

So there it is, I think I have done it. Now I am going to tag Marcela, Jose, Loralee, I know it says eight but I don't know anyone else that I can tag, put I will try to find more people to tag. Sorry..


Home Sweet Home

We have been home for about 2 hours. Gaby ate and is now taking a nap, I wanted to take a nap but can't fall asleep. Jose has been great he won't let me do anything, I could get used to this. Monkey Doodle is at my Godmothers house and he does not miss us at all. He will be going to my moms house later today, and of course my mom is thrilled, I am so happy that we are in Florida and not some other state where no family can help. So maybe Florida is not so bad.
I can't believe that they let us go home so early, but I am glad that I am home. I could not sleep when I finally got Gaby to fall asleep we got company in the next bed at 2:30 A.M. They talked the whole time and did not turn off the light until 6A.M. and at 6:30 A.M. they came in to take blood from me, so I could say that I did not sleep. Well I have to catch up on my shows that I missed yesterday, I am so happy that we have a DVR, it will definitely come in handy now that I have two kids at home.


Gaby is here!!

Yes I am in the hospital, with the laptop. I feel very good, I am walking around as if nothing happened. It all went so fast, really the epidural never even kicked in, it was crazy. I pushed 3 times and she was out, Jose almost missed it. He had gone home to have lunch, and 1 second before he walked in she was out.
6 lb 19 in
We are waiting to be taken to our room, and wait for family members to come see us. I am hoping to be home by Saturday. Well I have to go they might come for us very soon. We'll update later.


It has come and gone..............

My Due date, well not all gone, there is still 3hrs and 10 mins. I went to the Dr yesterday and he'll induce me on Thursday, I have to go in the morning but I am hoping that I do go into labor before then. I have been walking and working around the house I got a lot done. Last Friday was my last day at work it feels great being at home, I hoping that we can stick to our budget so that I don't have to go back at least until Monkey Doodle starts school. We'll see..anyway we are ready for Gaby to come home, I am not even freaking out about the labor I just want to have her in my arms and look at her. I am very excited, the baby shower was great it turned out so nice, lavender and pink my mom made the center pieces, they were made out of baby diapers with bunny's on the top, and the food was good too, scramble eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, and a bunch of different pastries that looked really good, and we also had a chocolate fountain my favorite with strawberries and bananas. Just writing about it makes me hungry. Well I have to go, I am going to check my bag to make sure that I haven't forgotten anything for the hospital.
