6 months and more

Philip had his 6 Month check up and shots on the 25th of March. He was a trooper with the shots. Cried but he did so well being happy during the day. He weighs 17.4 lbs and is 28 inch long! He is in the 90th percentile! That means only 10% of babies are bigger than him at this age. And the doctor said he is very advanced for his age. Awesome I have a super smart baby! The only bad thing is we found he has another ear infection. :( But this time I never would have known because he doesn't have a temp or screaming when sleeping. So he started on antibiotics. I hate giving them to him because I have to put him in a headlock. Ugh! Then I found out I also had an ear infection! Couldn't believe it! So I also was on antibiotics for awhile. But now we both are better. Thank goodness! He has been doing so well sleeping in his crib. Sometimes ha sleeps through the night and sometimes he wakes up but I really don't care because he is sleeping in his crib! We finally have news for my husband getting here. He has his embassy interview on the 23rd of April and the hopefully he will be here the 3rd or 4th of May! Yay! We are so excited! Well today is my birthday and I've turned 33! Can't believe it! Great start to the day was that Philip didn't wake up at night at slept in till 8! What a great present!

2 months

Well my son is now passed the two month mark. Can't believe how fast he is growing. At his two month check up he weighed 12 lbs 7 oz and was 23 1/4 inches long. He is so big! He is almost rolling over when on his stomach and he can sit up if he is in an inclined position. He coos and talks all the time and loves to be around other kids. He started sleeping through the night which mommy loves. Not even getting up to eat. Everyone asks me what I do and I have to say, nothing. I haven't done a thing. He is just the cutest baby ever and I love him so much! I am very thankful to have him in my life. My husband has been approved in the first step now we are on to the second part. It's just a lot of money but we are doing the best we can. Hopefully he will be here before Philip is 6 weeks old. I love being a mommy.

I love my baby!!

I absolutely LOVE my baby!!! He is the best baby ever!! Yes sometimes he wants to feed every hour or doesnt sleep through the night "normally" but I love him. He hardly ever cries and when he does its during the day and he is just so darn cute. I just wish Daddy was here to enjoy him as much as I do but I know he will be soon!

I am very frustrated with baby #1. Not knowing how having a baby is supposed to be has made things so difficult. Couldn't Heavenly Father implanted in us an inherent knowledge of how it is supposed to be? It might have made things easier. So now I am a week overdue and will be induced on Thursday. I've been to the hospital 3 times thinking "this is it!" only to be sent back. How annoying. I am worried that I will get there to be induced and nothing will progress and I will have to have a c-section. That is one reason I am not having my baby in Guatemala because 90% of the babies born are born by c-section and I don't want to be cut open! I've never had surgery in my life and I don't want to start now. I just hope it all works out and he is born naturally. Also this prolonging has brought people out of the woodwork asking me everyday "is he born yet?" I just want to be left alone. I don't want to answer that question a gazillion times, yes I know "over-exaggeration", but come on people. I want him here just as much as you. But I can't force the hospital to give me the potocin or to pull him out. Everyone actually has been telling me not to be induced because it is bad for the baby. Please people.... I am very grateful to my mom who has been there for me through this. I wish my husband was here to but that is another long post about how slow our government is and really I don't even want to go there. Another issue where everyone knows more than me. Again people: everyone is different! Ugh! I've never received more unsolicited comments or advice in my life. So here I am ready to have this baby and bring him into this wonderful world to gain a body and teach him all that I know and I must wait. Only a few more days!! I pray!!

Good-bye Chapis!

This was back in august but it never got published. So because its been awhile since I´ve blogged I haven´t told anyone the sad news in my family. About a month ago my boyfriend and I had to put down my dog Chapis. He had run out of the house and down the street straight into an oncoming car. We tried to chase him down but this time he was too fast for us. He was hit and it looked like maybe just a broken leg. The vet came and took him back to the office and looked him over and told us we had two choices. He said he could work on him but it was most likely he wouldn´t walk again. It look like his pelvis, back and obviously his leg were broken. Our other choice was to put him down. He was very hard but we didnt feel it was fair to have him there not being able to walk and we decided to put him down. We buried him in an area close to where my boyfriends parents live. It was very hard for my boyfriend. Recently my boyfriends cousin gave us a kitten that we named Alekay because he looks like Alex from the movie Madagascar and so now we are happy with our two cats. We never will forget our cute but troublesome dog and we know he is happy in doggy heaven. We love you Chapis!!

Pregnancy Week 29/30

So the pregnancy is much better now! Although life seems to get in the way of the happiness. My husband and I decided I should go ahead of him back to the states as it would be easier for him to come.....not happening that way. I haven't been able to find a job thanks to the belly and my honesty, I hate lying even to get a job. And that makes it hard to get the money together to get my hubby here which I need so much! I miss him so much and I hope that all will be pulled together and he will be here before the baby is born...September 12th. For those that don't know we are having a boy, Philip Armando Gonzalez. We are super excited and I always wanted a boy first! Yay! Sp hopefully I get a job soon and then I will be able to send his papers and get him here asap.
