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.

Arielle... Oh Arielle

My little baby has turned into a full blown toddler. She just turned 16 months! She had her check up a few days ago and they just couldn't keep up with her. She was everywhere... she was doing things she knew would make everyone laugh... and she threw the biggest tantrum when they tried to examine her. But for the most part she was very happy. Except of course when they tried to examine her,when they tried to settle her down, when they took away her stick, when they tried to give her a shot... Okay so maybe she wasn't as happy as I thought... and she definitely wasn't happy when her goldfish crackers spilled onto the floor and I had to throw them into the garbage. She yelled NO! for 3 minutes straight.

But all in all she's growing VERY well. She's in the 75 percentile for her height... yup tall girl. And she's in the 75 percentile for her weight... which she weighed in at 24lbs 15 oz. (Kinda funny... Diego and Alayna who also had their checkups, weighed 44 and 34 respectively.) But I think the weight is all in her thunder thighs. (And Diego and Layna are in the 45 percentile for both weight and height for their ages.) So when presented with this information I decided to ask the Dr... So what does that all really mean anyway? So she says, "If you put 100 kids their age in a line from the smallest to the biggest they'd be that number in line." So Arielle would be 75! I couldn't help but turn to Jr and laugh my butt off... then proceeded to sing "I like em BIG, I like em chunky..." (If you don't get it... you soooo have to watch Madagascar 2... Moto Moto!)



Anywho... This is an all Arie post... All Arie... All the time.

Boy is that girl getting herself into predicaments these days. She's a ball of laughter. Pure entertainment.

When her Nina was here visiting from California... she got to see a little of her playful and hilarious personality.
video

In this one she was in the car with us and it was a pretty nice night... so we had the windows rolled down and she was so amazed with all the wind on the freeway... it was a riot!
video

Here she climbed on the bed to grab a bottle of soda only to get stuck on her way back down... I found her clinging for dear life screaming her head off for help!


Just the other day after I mopped the kitchen floor she decided to play under the table since the chairs had all been pulled out.

Then this happened and she wasn't so happy...

And of course before I saved her life (again) I HAD to video it... and just to let you know... Alayna was in panic mode. LOL!
video

The same day she showed me her helpful side and assisted me with my laundry. She really does like to help a lot. And she follow direction VERY well. I am surprised.
video

Here she is scooting herself around the kitchen in a box she found. Who needs toys right?!


Now this is rare. Alayna loves Arielle to pieces and smothers her sometimes... but Arielle (since she was very little) has always hated having Alayna around. Alayna couldn't wait for Arie to get bigger so she could play with her and teach her stuff... but now that she's big enough she avoids her at all costs. So to see them playing together is fun!
video

And she talks A LOT! Half the time we can't understand her... but there's a lot of words she puts together. AND she LOVES having conversations with her Daddy. Silly kid!
video

Here she is in more compromising situations...
She was mad because she got her leg tangled in the cord and I wouldn't help her.

And then she was mad cuz after she threw her cup at the floor a few times... I took it away and she couldn't reach it.


And last but not least... here she is SINGING! One of her favorite things to do... but I think she gets this from Alayna who sings all day long even when in conversation.
video
And in case you don't know... she is singing the Alicia Keys song "No One" there's a lot of Uh Oh's in the song. If you youtube the song you can hear that she actually sings it correctly!

All in all this little Chunky Monkey mades me smile!

And without her our family wouldn't be as whole as we are... she adds a little something extra. She's tons of fun but she's also my most cuddliest baby. And I love her!
