The Nail Files

Got my nails done just in time for this link up!

The Nail Files

 I had them painted a pretty red BUT my friend sent out a text saying she was doing her gel nails for way cheap, so my mom, sister & sister in law figured what the heck, lets get them done.



They're like a black/gray glitter and a pinky purple glitter, we were trying something new. I love gel nails. These ones are a little longer than  I wanted them BUT I can always file them down.

I was hoping to have bought a pretty polish for my toes, but I didn't get there. Maybe next week! 

P.S. I loved this link-up it was perfect for my busy Friday!

10 months.

My sweet baby A you are now 10 months old.

This past month has been full of fun!

You are still crawling, and getting crazy fast at it!
You are 19 lbs & 29" long still.

You wear 12 months clothes, size 3 shoes are a little big but work fine. Size 3 diapers still! You look chubby in that first picture but you're pretty skinny looking to us! 

You started to refuse baby food and will only eat what we are eating. 
Today you had french toast for your Happy 10 months breakfast.


You posed for this picture. You didn't even eat that piece you have in your hand. You tossed it as soon as this picture was taken.  
You thought you were just SO funny! You kinda were. 

You had your first ear infection this month.

Your cousin Stinky came to live with us for about 6 weeks.


You had your first Oreo.
You went and saw Christmas lights.

With this stud.

We went to see your Grandma's side of the family, to make Biscochitos, which you love.


You had your second Oreo.


You learned to take your diaper off.


You got a letter from Santa, with some cute snowmen stickers.


You opened your first Christmas Eve Present



You celebrated Christmas

And relaxed on the couch after a busy morning opening presents.


Xmas with Mom.

Sticking my tongue out.

I wanted to play princess ALL day.

Angry about mom trying to get a picture of us together.


So I whacked us both in the face with a bracelet. 

Last picture being 9 months old.

It's been a wonderful 10 months. I love this little girl more every day!

Baby #2.

Baby #2.
When are you coming? 
What will you be like?
How will A respond to being a big sister?

I always ask myself these things. No, we're not currently back in the TTC group. We're waiting till A is at least 1 if not 1 1/2. I want to make sure she has enough time to be a baby. Enough just one on one time with me and SJ but, at the same time I don't want them so far apart that it's hard for her to get used to a new baby. So I figured starting to talk about baby #2 after A's birthday is the best option. 

What will I like as a mom to 2 babies?
Will I be able to handle it? 
Heck most days it still amazes me that Miss A is mine. Would it be weird for you to hear that, it still hasn't clicked that A is mine, that I've had a baby? I mean yes I do everything and more for her and love her more than anything, but I still feel like I'm in a dream.

Sometimes I wonder if I'll be able to handle two babies. Sometimes I wonder when we'll actually get pregnant. Will it happen quickly, or will it take a while like it did with A. Can I handle it taking a while if it does? I think I can. I know I can with Miss A by my side. Of course she won't know what's going on, but seeing her beautiful smile will help. Every time I see her my heart is healed just a little bit more, from all the pain it endured waiting for her. Hoping, wishing she'd come.

She came when God knew I needed her most. This is her time. She came when she was ready.  I know the same is to be said about Baby #2. He or she will come when they are ready. I know it will be more of a challenge with two kids, verses just Miss A. I'm up for that challenge. I know it will be worth it. And just knowing that, I'm ready now. I'm ready, like yesterday.

So for now I'll look back at A's baby pictures. I'll fold her little clothes and pack them up. I'll let my excitement and curiosity build, and remember that it'll happen when it's supposed to happen. Though if anyone were to tell me that outside of you blogging buddies, I would probably stab them. HA!


I'm linking this post up with Shell over at Things I Can't Say.

My Ring!


Ya, look at that nasty hand, but look a beautiful ring! 
The middle part is my engagement ring, one of the bands is my wedding band and the other was bought for me just because. 

When SJ and I were dating we talked about getting married, ALL the time. He asked about rings, asked if I wanted to go look at them or if I wanted someone to just pick it out for me. I said I'd rather the guy go and pick out the ring for me. That I wanted him to find the ring that looked like me. He said he looked for days at different stores and finally found this one. I haven't seen any like it. The jeweler of course said there weren't many if any like it. (Who knows.) I love my ring. I love that SJ picked it out because it reminded him  of my smile. I wouldn't trade my ring for another. 

I'm a little late linking up over here. but I really wanted to show off my ring!
