The Silly Kids

My wonderful mother has been watching my nephew Gabe while my sister and her husband work. Since i see my mother often, i have had the chance to spend more time with Mr. Man (Gabe). That kid is Silly, and add a naughty little girl named Bella in the mix, and your in for a treat. The two of them together are hilarious! The videos are of Gabe and Bella at Target. The funny thing about one is that Bella loves to be affectionate and give lots of kisses. Gabe usually runs away from her, but this time he was chasing after her trying to hug her. And the Pictures of Bella... they speak a thousand words!

Easter #2 at Auntie Natalies!

This was on Easter Sunday, and it was so nice to have dinner with Armando's family. There are now 9 kids (including Bella) and Bella loves to play with all her cousins! She was so funny that day because even though she was not feeling well, she wanted to run around and play with the big kids. It was such a beautiful day, and it was such a blessing to go to church and remember why we celebrate Easter.

Easter #1 at Great Grandmas House

Armando and I are very blessed to have all of our family living close by (on both sides), but one problem with that is finding time during the holidays to visit everyone. Its hard driving back and forth, and finding the time especially on Sundays is tough. So we figured out a solution this year and that was visiting with my Grandma and Grandpa the day before Easter to celebrate with them. My grandmother purchased a beautiful white dress for little Bella that she wore. Bella was feeling a little sick that day, but she was a trooper and made my grandparents laugh with all her silliness. Here are some pics of Bella, and some of her and my wonderful grandparents. We Love you Grandma and Grandpa!

A Day With Gabe

My sister Kim called me up on Tuesday and asked me if I wanted to walk over to the Target by her house with her and Gabe. I was more than happy to go since it gets me out of the house with my crazy daughter. The kids loved the walk, and I got some much needed exercise, and fresh air. Next to the Target there is a little courtyard and a water fountain, so we stopped and let the kids look at the water and walk around. Its so nice to see Bella play with her cousin! As they were side by side in their strollers, they passed toys back and forth, and played peek-a-boo. That was the forst time they consciously played together....I am so happy Bella has so many wonderful cousins to play with. Thanks for such a nice day Gabe! We love you!

My Big Girl

So I was just getting Bella ready for the day and I decided to put her hair in pony tails (which is the first time I have done that). She looked so cute and so big! I took her out side to take pictures, and she was loving it! After I looked at the pictures I realized that although she looks a lot like Armando, there are sometimes that I totally see me and this was one of those times!

Bella's Big Party

On March 1st we had a party for the birthday girl. So the party was fun, but it didn't exactly go as planned. The whole week before it was sunny and warm, Armando and I reserved the Gazebo at McCarthy Park. We were so excited and I woke up extra early to be ready and to decorate the gazebo to look perfect. Well if anyone remembers that day, it was freezing! It didn't warm up like it was supposed it to, and after spending hours decorating, we had to move the party and all the guests from the park to Armando's mothers house. Luckily she lives super close to the park so it wasn't too bad; just a little embarrassing. All our family and friends were so great though and helped us pack up and move the party. On the up side... Bella had a blast! She is such a ham and loves attention... I wonder where she gets that from (Armando of course).
I really want to just say thank you to all of our friends and family who came to celebrate our baby's birthday.
