The Queen: Michelle

The Queen: Michelle
I am 28 years old. Still a princess but the queen of my family. Spoiled beyond belief. Lucky and truely blessed. A lover. A crafter. A mother. A wife. A friend. This is me.

My King: Junior

My King: Junior
The LOVE of my life! He completes me and balances me out in every way. He's a workaholic. He's loud, blunt, and crazy. He drinks Monsters like his life depends on it. Above all he is the greatest Daddy I could ever ask for, for my children. And he treats me like his Queen (and he calls me that too).

The Model Child: Diego Ray

The Model Child: Diego Ray
9 years old. My only boy. He is the epitome of the perfect child. He is so responsible and independent. Wise beyond his years. He is laughter, he is love, he is compassion, he is simply amazing. He keeps me grounded and reminds me always that I am beautiful. He is a natural born leader and takes care of the household and family better than me!

The Diva: Alayna Danae

The Diva: Alayna Danae
7 years old. She is drama. My fashionista for sure with a style all her own. Sensitive and loving when she wants to be. Thumbsucker. My biggest headache because she is the most like me. She is the only one who can cause me to become uncontrollably angry. She loves to dance. She loves to model. My bookworm and most academic.

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace
4 years old. This one is something else. She is pure comedy. Never a dull moment with her crazy antics. She is also the crybaby. She does things her own way. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to be cute to get it. My Disney loving pal. So girly. Her favorite color is pink. Loves Rapunzel. Will wear a dress every single day. Can't leave the house without a bow in her hair. She refuses.

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle
2 years old. My sweet baby. She loves her Mommy above all else. She is a cuddlebug for sure. The calmest most well behaved baby ever! But she has TONS of energy. She is so small and petite. She loves to sing and dance. She so SO ready for ballet and has yet to even step foot in a class. She loves Minnie Mouse and watching Disney Jr. She is hilarious and talks way too much.

15 weeks and 4 days Pregnant

Continuing the march towards normal proportions, baby's legs now outmeasure the arms. And, finally, all four limbs have functional joints. Your fetus is squirming and wiggling like crazy down in the womb, though you probably still can't feel the movements.

So according to my weekly e-mail that comes to my inbox... my little baby is the size of a Naval Orange. I love their comparison to fruits and vegetables. Last week, the baby was a lemon, and now an orange. Way to put things in perspective. I am a visual person so the comparisons help. Of course I look more like I am carrying a melon... but I feel like I am carrying a watermelon. I can't help but think, "When is this gonna be over?!" Oh yeah then reality sets in and I realize I'm not even halfway there yet. Great! I am extremely tired and since this is the third time around... things are getting old. I am done with nausea, back pain, headaches, I am done with all the fatigue, restless nights, and having to pee.

Don't get me wrong.

Being pregnant is a blessing and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I love knowing that my baby is in there and growing more every day. I love the anticipation and joy a new baby brings. But sometimes I feel so overwhelmed. Taking care of two kids at the same time is also no small task. Of course my husband thinks that I sit at home eating, watching tv, and probably have my 2 kids fanning me with giant palm leaves. Oh how I wish! I can't stand when he gets home and sleeps cuz he thinks his day was far worse than mine. Hello get a clue dear husband... live a day in my shoes (pregnancy and all) and you'll be begging to spend a day 9-5 selling cell phones again!

What I would give to have just one day off! Just one whole day to me...

Yes, it was many years ago, but I so remember with the fourth one, just wanting one day off!!! But my last, my Jill...My treasure.
God bless you and your little "orange"

Que te puedo decir mi amor, yo que me volvía un lirón cuando estaba embarazada. Pensé que por fin había conseguido el sueño americano, pues yo siempre tenía mucho sueño.

I love you and your fruit cocktail.
