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.

Decorating for Christmas

I could hardly wait to put up our new tree and decorations in our apartment. So the second we got our first free chance Diego, Alayna, and I got to work. Jr assembled the tree and we did everything else... while Arielle napped of course!

They were so proud when we were all done!

Then Arielle woke up and we got her into the fun too:

Door Wreath I made:

More decorations:

I LOVE it!

20 Weeks - Weekly Update - The Cantaloupe

Baby's digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, speaking of the diaper situation... baby's genitals are now fully formed!

How far along? 20 weeks

Total Weight Gain: I don't own a scale so I don't weigh myself weekly... Up 5lbs until my next appointment.

Maternity Clothes? All the time!

Stretch Marks? None new

Sleep? Other than waking up with a backache sometimes I am still sleeping good. Hopefully this lasts as long as possible.

Best Moment This Week: Finally looking pregnant to myself instead of just fat.

Movement: I am feeling a lot more movement now but no one else can feel it yet.

Food Cravings: Still hot wings... Mmm... Man have I been eating hot wings.

Gender: It's a Girl... Miss Atalie Belle!

Labor Signs: None yet... Way too early

Belly Button - In but wide.

What I miss: Breathing normal

What I am looking forward to: Decorating for Xmas... not baby related but that's what I am looking forward to.

Weekly Wisdom: Pace yourself with holiday food! I totally didn't over eat!

Milestones: Halfway through this pregnancy!

Thanksgiving Memories 2009

(Diego made this turkey at school for us)

The things I have to be the most grateful for in this world:

Me and the Love of my life:

Me and my Daddy:

Me and my Brother:

Then... The REAL us:

He's so beautiful!

Work it!


Then it was time for group pictures and Kika liked that idea.

That is until Matthew decided not to cooperate and she slapped him...

Just kidding! But it looks believable no? She was fixing his hair!

And this is a typical family picture for me... Alayna won't look cuz she's in a bad mood... Arielle is a ham... Diego thinks he's a stud... and Jr looks bored. Yup that sums up every family picture we have together.

My parents with their kids and in-laws:

And then we attempt a WHOLE family photo:
But before you can have a decent shot... there's a LOT of this...

But alas we have something useable...

And after dinner the rest of the night was spent playing board games and goofing off...

And Loyiel did a photoshoot with me and Jr:

And we had tons of fun!
