Little Treasures

I love just because gifts and this was no exception. I found a beautiful card on my side of the bed and I was in tears in a matter of seconds... I love my husband so much! And then I noticed that there was a bump on my side of the bed as well, when I lifted the sheets I found these:


Love and protect thee, forever


Treasuring a Rare, Quiet and Tender Moment of Motherhood

Did I ever mention that I love the Willow Tree collection? My hubby certainly knows this! These statues remind me of the love I have for my children... Izaak and Peanut(until we find out the gender of our baby and determine a name). I am going to be a mommy of two beautiful spirits!

My little monkey

Isn't he the cutest? I may be a little bias but I definitely think he is absolutely adorable. Izaak is my little joy and makes mami happy every single day. He's got the cutest laughter ever and is super sweet too. Here are just a few things I love about my boy:

  • He says bless you anytime he hears someone sneeze and not only does he say it but he comes up to that person and makes sure that they hear him.
  • Randomly he will come up to me and give me a kiss on my arm and lean his head on me. I love this!
  • He is such a big boy and has learned to close the door after he leaves a room.
  • He likes to climb up to his high chair when it is time to eat and don't try to help him, he likes to do this all by himself.
  • He loves to watch Dora the Explorer and will repeat the words out loud. If you have ever watched this show, you know the part that the "map" helps out and mentions where to go... well my little one loves to say all those words out loud. It may not be the best pronunciation, but then again he is just two.
  • He has started to say prayers, with the help of mami or papi of course, and does such a good job at repeating what is said. He tries to maintain his arms crossed and bows his head too.

I love this little boy. I know that he will be a great big brother to Peanut. He is mami's and papi's gift from heaven. It is truly a blessing to be an eternal family!

My love, my hero and my best friend

That's right I have the best husband in the world... I would totally nominate him for that in an instant. He has been so patient with me ever since day one of our wonderful journey.

I love him!
I have been a little spoiled lately, which I cannot deny that it has been great, and I wanted to let my love know how much I appreciate it. I have been extremely tired lately... maybe it is because of the pregnancy, and my hubby has totally been covering for me when it comes to chores around the house. I do silly things sometimes, like not putting away the perishable items in the fridge or not starting the washing machine after loading the dirty clothes... well then my super hero comes to the rescue.

I know that it gets him frustrated but he forgives me very easily.

He is G-R-E-A-T!

He is an awesome father to our Izaak. This morning while I was getting ready for work, he went ahead and got Izaak ready for school. I could hear over the monitor Izaak's great laughter because daddy was being silly in order to get him all ready. It just brightens up my day to think of all the wonderful things my hubby does for our family. He is a great provider, a lovable husband, a wonderful and fun papi to our Izaak

and my best friend!

Love you babe!

Beautiful sound

I am happy to announce that Zak and I are PREGNANT again!! Which means Izaak is going to be a Big Brother. Can you believe it? We are so excited and have been looking forward to this for a few months!

Today we had an appointment and met our new physician, Dr. Lavoie. She is great! She was able to answer all of our questions and she was very informative. I love doctors that take their time to speak to me and show that they care. So after a physical examination (not my favorite part of a doctors visit) we had the wonderful opportunity to listen to "peanuts" (that's our baby's name for now) heartbeat. It was the best part and totally made worth the uncomfortable physical exam. I am happy to know that so far peanut is healthy and that all my tests came back with flying colors! So I will continue taking my prenatal vitamins in hopes that I will have a chunky baby this time around. I love my family so much and I am super excited for this new wonderful spirit to come join us soon. I love peanut so much!

I receive an email every week with an update of how my baby may be growing from here. I am now 9 weeks along and this is how my baby looks... well according to this website:

I know it looks a little weird, but it is amazing how much it will change during a matter of weeks.
