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.

The Baby and The Crybaby

So I had my first appointment yesterday with my Doctor. I called them monday morning and they got me in right away for Tuesday at 9am. So after we took Diego to school we headed to his office. After filling out all the paperwork I was taken back to pee in a cup. They verified the pregnancy... so in fact I am pregnant. And they estimated my due date at April 7th, 2010. (3 days after Arielle's birthday and 11 days after Diego's) So that puts me at 8 weeks. Give or take.

My Dr was actually out on vacation since Monday and he'll be gone for 3 weeks. So mid September I have my 2nd appointment to have an ultrasound done to get a more accurate due date. They couldn't do one without him there. Boo! I hate that I couldn't even get to hear the heartbeat and I have to wait 3 weeks for that! But I did all my bloodwork so it will be ready for when he returns. I am going to the same Dr that delivered both Diego and Alayna... and who cared for me up until the last month before I had Arielle. So it feels like home there. The same nurses still work there so it's pretty cool.

Here's my (almost) 6 week update: Sweet Pea!

Growing like crazy, baby is starting to sprout eyes, ears, nose, cheeks and chin. Those little hands and feet- still webbed like paddles- might wiggle by week's end, the heart is beating (almost twice as fast as yours!), and blood is starting to circulate.

So many people are pregnant right now that I know...
My sister-in-law Liz is due 11/15/09 and is having a boy. (Her 2nd baby)
My cousin-in-law Sindi is due 12/16/09 and is having a boy. (Her 1st baby)
My sister-in-law Jen is due 03/30/10 and WON'T find out what she's having. (Her 4th and LAST baby)
And me who's due 4/7/10 and I am hoping for another boy... but don't care either way! (My 4th and LAST baby)

And there's 2 more people I know who MIGHT be pregnant but it's not confirmed yet so I won't post anything until they give me the okay!

Other than that...



Today was Alayna's 3rd day of school and she started crying before we even got into the door of her classroom. As I signed her in she held onto my leg for dear life. I was carrying Arielle in my arms so I was having a hard time getting her off so I could say bye to her. But her teacher (which I love them both to pieces... they are so nice) came and gently pulled her away even though she was crying out "Mooooooommmmyyy! I'll miiiiiisssss you.... Nooooooo!" And I slipped out the door. I felt bad but I knew I couldn't linger there... it's only going to make her process harder. So I left.

When I picked her up at 4pm she was as happy as can be sitting on their circle carpet, eating her snack, and singing the "Goodbye" song with her classmates. One of her teacher told me that she literally cried for a minute and was done. She was very sad but she was done. I knew she would so that's why I left quickly.

She actually is really loving school... she just has a problem with me not being there. She's kinda going backwards... but she'll get used to it. After class she was so excited to show me that she drew a picture of her teacher and gave it to her and the teacher put in up on the board so everyone could see it. She was soooooo proud! She giggled while telling me all about it. It was adorable!
