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.

Bittersweet

As I get closer and closer to having this little baby... I get more impatient, more nervous, more scared, more excited. It's like a whirlwind of emotions all lumped into one.

I am tired of carrying her in my body. My back ACHES! I feel constant pressure in my tummy that doesn't go away. Makes it hard to walk.

I am actually kinda scared and nervous for this labor. Yes, I know... I've been through it 3 times. But not 3 times without my Mom. I seriously am wondering if Jr and I will panic all alone there in the delivery room. I have expressed to him that I would like to have it just be him and I in the room when I deliver. I know some of my family especially my Dad will be waiting in the waiting room anyway. In a way I feel like I don't want to replace her. She was always the only other person I wanted in the room with me even though at each of my deliveries I did have other people besides her and Jr. But she took over and got me through everything. She held my leg, inspired me to push, yelled at me when I would start to cry with a contraction and tell me to stop crying and breathe! She was also the one who was the first to run to see the baby and count every finger and every toe and tell me how perfect they were. Most of the time with camera in hand. And my Mom was bad with a camera... pictures or videos. But these are the things I remember. But then again, can I get all the support I need from just Jr? I am scared that he won't know what to do and just stand there. I mean my Mom did everything, rubbed my feet when they were swollen, massage my back through the contractions, and make sure I had enough ice chips and my celebratory meal afterward. I mean, who else is going to buy me WHATEVER the heck I want to eat and top it off with a Venti Frap?

But most of all I am excited. I am ready to meet this little girl that had been cooking in my tummy for almost 39 weeks. I have an appointment tomorrow with my Dr. and he said he'll schedule my induction. So I will have this baby pretty soon. I am ready for some sleepless night. Well not that my nights are filled with much sleep these past few weeks anyway. But I am ready.

And for fun... Here's my Mom's videos of when Arielle was born 2 years ago.

I'm excited for Miss Atalie too, mainly cuz her name is freaken awesome. :). You'll be fine though, and I think...I think Jr will be ok. Well honestly, he has no choice and I don't think he'll back down from the challenge. He'll man up and do that WOMANS job without a problem, just you watch!

Take a picture of her and put it next to your bed... It's what I plan to do! Stick the frame in your diaperbag now before you forget. Or the frame I made... Or both? I might do both now that I think about it...

Just remember she's not coming out when WE want her to because Mom is perfecting her...

Hmph... Made my own personal decision to not be induced thinking of it that way... D: that means my WATER is gonna hve to break naturally!!! My worst fear!!! Ahhh!



.... Anyway, cmon Atalie, your mother is ready for you!
