Long week

This past week was so busy! Heres a list of things that happened.
-"Clean" the house(more like push my mess over to a side)
-Wait for our long awaited sofas.
-Celebrate our aniversary.
-Trade babies.
-Go to the gym, scratch that. Play with the baby.
Like I said we finally recieved our sofas. We had to wait 5 weeks for them, even though they were already paid in full. At last our guest dont have to sit on our bed.


The weather here is beautiful!!! I know I said that already, but it was so hot the weekend that I had to repeat it. We spent our sunday afternoon at the park. Isla was her daddys cheerleader. Poor baby she was so hot we had to take all her clothes off. I like to see her in her pamper anyways. lol


My sister in law and I decided(mainly me) to trade babies for a day. A friend of mine and I went to the childrens mueseum I took Anma with me, while Silvia stayed home with Isla.

The slide was a hit she loved it! Besides the plastic balls it was one of the only things she really knew how to play with.Anma and Christiann on the slide together.We had some moments like this.
We ended everything like this. Can you believe that I did not get ONE picture of this little girl smiling or looking at the camera. It as if she has a reflex to turn her head the minute she sees a camera.

The mueseum was a lot of fun, but it was at the children stores near the mueseum where I had the most fun. Left me broke, but I'd do it all over again. With more money ofcourse! :)
When you leave baby with daddy because you want a few minutes alon, these things happen.

As Moose A. Moose says "Spring has definitely sprung". Today the weather was beautiful. Our family enjoyed it. Daddy and Isla. Sadly there isnt to many mommy and Isla moments being that I'm the one behind the camera.Islas dolly. Don't they look alike? Minus the long hair. She came for the ride.Isnt this cute when Bee came home Isla jumped on him. Okay so not exactly but it excites me to know that she will one day. She has a fatty, its mainly her diaper but its still big! She takes after her mom. ;)She tried out one of her toys today. That damn thing almost chocked her. That smile you see there was a lie!At the end of the day Isla shared her stroller with her cousin Anma. We thought it would be cute to put them in together, and no one wanted to carry either one of them.

Thank God


Everyone knows I’m not to religious, I really don’t go to church anymore, I don’t know any scripts from the bible, heck I barely know the story of Adam and eve but I do speak to him on my own time. The past few days I could not stop thanking him for the baby sleeping right next to me. Baby stellan has been in the hospital for the past four weeks, baby Maddie just past**Baby Thalon has also passed away (these are babies from other blogs that I read). You cant help but wonder why was I blessed with this baby girl?

Before I became pregnant with Isla I was pregnant with another child (Jr. as we called it). My mind could not come to terms with the fact that in 9 month I was going to become a mother. I was too young, I had just began going to the clubs, I didn’t want responsibilities. This was coming from the girl that LOVES babies, worked with kids and always hoped to be a mom. Eventually I started to accept it and looked forward to becoming a mother.

And then it all too soon came to an end. I went in for my 3 month check up and saw this lifeless baby floating in the sonogram. I felt as if I had failed the baby and God. I couldn’t believe how selfish I was. And now I had NOTHING!

I thought I was being punished. I thought He didn’t think I was ready to be a mother and took it away from me. And then I became pregnant with Isla two months later. I figured He was giving me another chance. Never in my life was I more grateful than the day she was born. He and I spoke like never before. I couldn’t stop thanking him for the gift He had given me. I promised Him I wasn’t going to let Him down.

I understand now that it wasn’t the baby’s time, for that matter mine either. He knows what he does and why He does it. I don’t know why the baby isn’t with me now. But I’ve learned now that you don’t question those things. He is my father there for He knows what’s best.

I do not know why I was chosen to be her mother but I know not to take it for granted. I have learned from my mistakes, He has forgaven me. I know now to never underapprecitate what is given to you for He know what he does.

My life has changed since the day she was born. Yes I don’t sleep anymore and I barely shower(If you know me, you know I’m not to fond of it anyway) but I’d loose a lifetime of sleep to have her by my side. Thank you God!

As for the babies, please pray for them and their families.

Ps. she’s four month as of Monday.

Fine dining

Liquid gold isn't the only thing she eats.
First was the oatmeal. She didn't like it to much.
*note to self do not feed solids after bathing the baby, and absolutely do not feed the baby when she is sleepy.

Then the carrots. She loved the carrots.

*another note to self take caution when the baby is going to sneeze, do not have food in her mouth. Make sure you clean the inside her nose after each feeding or she will have dry pieces of carrot in her nose!

sweet potatoes next.

Big girl

My computer is done for. so lets recap this week before it shuts off.

When did my baby get so big?

She's 16 lbs 14 oz and 25.3 in in length.

The doctor typed it in, looked at me and said "you know that babies are supposed to double their birth weight at 6 months and triple it at 12" I swear its all breast milk with very few bottles of formula! :)
(a week later when she went in for her secound dose of shots, we chose to spread them out)

Isla got some bling!! On her ears that is. My baby girl is getting so big, yesterday we pierced her ears after chickening out the other day. I think is hurt me more than it hurt her. If it was up to me I would've left her with one earring. Poor thing! But I must admit she looks so cute with earrings. Maybe now people will stop asking me "is it a boy or a girl"!!
Oh and she found her thumb and I think its the cutest thing in the world!

But back to my question..Where did my hairy armed, small belly, skinny legged baby go? I swear it felt like just yesterday she drowned in her coat and now I have to open the bottom so her legs can stretch(I refuse to buy another coat, its spring!!). I knew time would go by fast but never had I imagined that I would be sad to see it go just because I will never be able to go back to this. It is bitter sweet because I make new memories as time goes by, but you cant help but miss the old ones. That is why every chance I get I take pictures. So that I can go back to them and feel those moments all over again. As I do now.

Wheres Isla, bobo thief, and my weight.

Time to play..Where's Waldo (Isla edition)..

Did you find her yet?
Here's a better look..

Oh there she is! Inside of a Home Depot shopping cart.

She was a tad bit offended by the picture taking.
Ladies and gentlemen we have found the bobo thief!
She attempted giving her the bobo..
She contemplated..
She took it!
Off of the baby subject for a bit, I officially joined Weight Watcher and Lucille Robert with a friend today. For breastfeeding a newborn does not make you lose the baby weight(DO NOT BELIEVE THE HYPE), there's a long awaited trip in the summer with too many skinny bitch's, and I need to not lose all my breath before I reach the front door of my building to then go up 3 more flights of stairs! I will try to keep everyone posted as for I know there are family member reading that would like to see if the family tradition will keep on or will my child bearing hips actually stop growing. Stay tuned.
