Hi Fam! I have been so bad at blogging since I discovered FB! Fun and easy way to stay connecting with friends and family! I can't write all I want on there so I am going to make a sincere effort to start blogging on a regular basis.

So, Chase is 15 months old and has 5 1/2 teeth (lol). He weighs 26lbs as of yesterday. Maddy will be 3 on the 26th and weighs almost 28lbs. He's going to catch her eventually. She's long and lean and he's short and stout (awww!) I'm busy planning Maddy's 3rd birthday party. I tend to go all out on their birthdays, who knows what I will do when they turn 16, better start saving now, lol.

Poor Chase (In the pic above he is 2 months old at Preston's birthday party). Okay, I'm going to start blogging again, thats just not right that I haven't blogged on him. But I have Facebooked on him, lots and lots, I love you my little cuddle bug!

So, where to begin? I'll start with now, lol. Maddy most likely has asthma. She's on some meds and breathing treatments and I hope she starts to feel some relief. Poor kid sounds awful and is always struggling for air.

Chasey is doing great. He is starting to thin out a bit but he's still my little linebacker! We will know his stats on the 15th when he has his 9 month "well baby" appointment. 9 months already. Where did the time go?? I have no idea. I have TWO kids. One of them is almost 3 and the other is almost 1. Wow. I've been focusing the majority of my energy on raising them, keeping Maddy active and going to playdates. I haven't focused much on my real estate business but I'm going to start and find a happy balance. I really want to move out of Palmdale and to Valencia so that means I need to do something to contribute financially towards that goal.

After Chase's 2nd haircut (yes, Fabian cut it the first time when he was 6 months old, lol. This is on Sunday the 28th of February)

Maddy's pose here was just too cute so I had to catch a pic of her off-guard.

So much has happened! I don't update on here like I should : ( follow us on Twitter: or Facebook...

Maddy is great, really big and busy, Fabian is great too. I'm just getting exhausted fast again but the baby is almost here! The time is really flying! Maddy has 2 playdates this week, a St. Patricks one tomorrow and an open play one at My 1st Gym on Wednesday. She loves her playdates so maybe those days will be good days : )

Happy New Year! Ours was pretty uneventful. Fabian worked and Madison was sleep and so was I until the fireworks started going off : ) We've just been hanging around the house. Fabians off running errands and I'm home with Maddy. I've started trying to potty train her which is a little bit funny, lol. I know she's young but she is pretty smart and I'm hoping she will catch on. I would rather not have 2 little ones in diapers that need changing all day come June. Fabian's birthday is Sunday and although his phone is barely a year old, he wants a touchscreen (and so do I!) so I upgraded him to a Blackberry Storm which should be here next week. Then Sunday we are taking him to Steer n' Stein here in Palmdale for steak because I think thats his favorite meal on earth. They have a 1lb steak which I think is the perfect birthday treat. I want to get him a cake from Coldstone so I probably need to sneak off today and order it. Tomorrow we're going to his parents house and hopefully Madison will warm up and play with them this time. I feel so bad that she's not close to them but they don't see her that often.

So, the holidays are UPON us! Wow, only a few days to go. Not really ready. I just want to enjoy this time of year and focus on the reason for it all, our savior Jesus Christ. The meaning gets lost in all the shopping and fuss. I kind of want to do presents in February or something and focus on Christ in December. Would that be a weird tradition? I just don't want the kids growing up all focused on presents and all of that. I want us all to take in the meaning and meditate on that during the season. I remember when I was a kid I was solely caught up in the gifts and decorations and things. And my little sister is pretty much the same, gimme, gimme, gimme. Christmas is about Jesus Christ, period.

So, as you can see by the little widget, we're expecting! And I only found out about a month ago, we're already 14 weeks! So, I got a root canal and all of that while pregnant! : ( I can't believe I didn't know but I didn't. I just got really sick and was sick 2 weeks with nausea and thought I had the flu, an ulcer or many other ailments I had googled. So, I made a dr appt and the first thing they did was order a pregnancy test. The dr came in the room like, "So, what do you think, pregnant or not?" I said, "Not?" He said, "No, yes you are! Is this a whoops or a congratulations?" I said, "Well, its both!" So, there you have it. We decided to wait this time until we at least got an ultrasound and could see all is well before sharing the news. It was so hard not to tell! The ultrasound was on Monday and at first I thought I was due June 19th but the dr changed the due date based on the baby's measurements to June 10th. At Antelope Valley its an automatic repeat c-section and if I want to try a VBAC I have to go to Panarama City. No thanks, so I'm having a c-section at 39 weeks. I don't have the date scheduled yet but the first week of June, our 2nd little one will be here! Less than 6 months, I guess not knowing your pregnant has its advantages, this time around is going quite fast! : ) Oh and don't laugh, but I thought I saw a tiny penis on the ultrasound screen (If you turn out to be a girl, mommy is sorry! lol)

I have been slacking, okay I'm going to update, at least with our halloween pictures : ) Maddy got sleepy so I ended up just taking pics of her and leaving her at home with her Daddy. I took my little sister Debra to the harvest festival at our church but it turned out to be for really small children. I took her to the mall but it was too late for trick or treating so we came back to our neighborhood and I drove her door to door : ) She got a lot of candy, the good stuff too, and she shared with her sister, good sis.
