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.

I'm in Shape. Round is a Shape...

I haven't talked about this pregnancy much and people are starting to question me... cuz I usually can't contain my excitement about my pregnancies. So let me clear the air. I AM VERY EXCITED!

Since October I was already focused on the holidays, and at that point I still didn't know the gender. My holiday christmas gift making was talking up all my time and then we moved.

In November is when we found out it was another girl! Yeah! But again not really anything for me to plan for. I have pretty much everything I need for this new baby except a playpen, high chair, and a carseat. But no big deal I still had a while to get these things. She doesn't need a high chair right away, and the playpen can wait until she's born. We'll be going to California a few weeks after her birth so I'll need it by then but no rush. So my carseat is my only main focus. But it doesn't mean I wasn't excited... it just wasn't like my other pregnancies where I was trying to decide on which travel system, which bedding set, and all that jazz.

Come December I was in the full holiday season mode! I love that time of year it's my favorite. So doing as many holiday activities with the kiddos is what took up my time. Then at the end of December is when we lost my Mama. So that was a major blow. And for the last 4 weeks it's just been a blur.

But I am very excited and now that we're entering February and my baby shower is getting closer I have to think about her more and start getting prepared. She'll be here in no time! April will be just around the corner! I still don't have a lot to prepare other than arranging the girls room and closet to start making room for her. But it will get done.

And it's still kinda hard because I am planning my sister-in-law's baby shower for mid February as well (since she's due just about 3 weeks before me), planning Diego and Arielle's birthday party (which will be joint because their birthdays are 8 days apart... and right before my due date), and plan my sister's baby shower so I don't have so much to do since I'll have a newborn baby by the time I have her shower. Ay yay yay!

So see? It's not that I don't care or that we're not excited. We are! I am just have so much else to do and think about that my time is not all spent planning for baby like usual.

So anyway... here's the evolution of me and Atalie. Don't judge me... I am in shape. Round is a shape.
P.S. I'll give you a better report on me and baby later this week. I have my glucose test on Thursday.
