We finally got orders.. Were moving !!

So happy to announce that we are officially moving back to San Diego, CA. We just got news of this yesterday and I just couldn’t hold it in. This is a bittersweet time for me, because though I am super excited to be closer to my family my brother is currently in San Diego. My heart also hurts for the fact that I know what awaits us. Which is deployments, since we’ve been on shore duty (meaning he doesn’t deploy) hubs has been with us every night. I have forgotten what it’s like to not have him around. So to experice that again, not only with one child but with three now, is just so scary and my heart hurts just thinking about it. I know this is what we signed up to do, it’s just becoming more of a reality again and experienceing these feelings. The last time he was on a deployment Adry was young and though, she knew her daddy she didn’t have a close bond with him, because he was gone most of the time.

This time around we’ve added two more to the mix and by the time we get back they will be old enough to know that daddy won’t be home. I’m just asking God for strength since I know it’s not going to be easy. I am excited to go back to a city and state that we love. We were both born and raised in So Cal and our first duty station was San Diego. I’m also excited about being closer to my parents whom will be my greatest support system. We’ve prayed a lot about our ‘next’ duty station. I asked GOD to take us whenever he thought, we would keep on growing in his word and just where he thought we belonged. So I’m trusting this is where we are meant to be. We will know the official date soon so as of right now were only assuming, will move anytime from feb-April. More to come soon…

You are 2 years old. Wow, where has the time went. Its so amazing to see you growing each and everyday. You bring so much joy and happiness to our hearts. You are such a loving, caring, crazy, energetic, random little kid. Daddy and I totally planned you and God granted our wish, by giving us YOU. We were in such a hard time in our lives, that it was YOU that made it better. You joined daddy and I and I am forever grateful, to GOD for giving us YOU !! 

Nick names: Papi, Ganga, bam bam, son

Favorite Foods: You are super picky with your food, you are, our little vegetarian. You love all things fruit (blueberries, strawberries, bananas, grapes), you LOVE fries.

Words you say: HI!!!, dad, sissy, brotha, mama, I go, no no no no, Dora, daddy, ah go ??, yum yum and some other random things 🙂 

Haircuts: up to this point you’ve only had 2 hair cuts so far, and the only reason we took you to get a trim was because your hair was bothering you, but we want to leave your hair as is because its just so beautiful and epic. You can choose when you want to cut it. 

Things you love: Cars, dora, big legos you are a organized little kid. You line up all your toys in a row, doenst matter what they are. You will still line them up. I think your getting into your terrible 2’s because your getting a little attitude these days. You love blowing us kisses, and if we don’t blow you a kiss back you get mad and frown your face >:( you enjoy your sissy’s company and you love to play with her. When daddy comes home from work, you run up to him and give him besitos and say “daddddd” its the cutest thing ever.

Where do we live? we currently live in Kingsville, Texas. We are stationed here with daddy for the time being, but will be moving within the next few months to who knows where? we are not sure just yet. We have been here for almost 3 years now. It’s a super small town and nothing really to do, but it’s grown on us and the fact that you and brother were born here. It has a special place in my heart.

Daddy, Sissy, Brother and I love you to the moon and back Papi. Enjoying you in the moment and making memories. 

 

Love,

Mommy

A little update on my life.

Life has been a bit hectic, tiresome to say the least. Having two little ones so close in age has taken its tole on me. Too much to do and so little time or no time to do it. I’ve also been trying to lose weight, which is a challenge of its own, trying to coordinate feedings and work outs around Adryana’s school time is hard work. Not to mention once I’m ready and totally into my work out little Edward gets fussy. Which totally sucks because I’m really into it and well he is a baby ‘what do I expect’?? Right ??  I know, trust me – I get it. It’s just a battle I’ve been having to deal with lately. 

Also, our time here in Texas will be coming to an end. My husband will be transitioning back to ‘Sea Duty’ meaning we will be stationed near the ocean and deployments will be on their way. So, we will slowing get things ready to move. It’s going to happen  within the next 4 months, a bit stressful,  but we gotta roll with the punches. 

Am I the only one that feels, like they just can’t catch a break ??

Through it all, I’ve learned to lean on GOD. I get so caught up in my “wants” that i sometimes don’t  see the bigger picture. GOD opened my eyes and just told me to take it easy. Right now my duties are taking care of our little munchkins, once they get a bit older, I will have more time to myself. For now I need to just deal with it as best as I can. {It’s definitely easier said then done} but I’m really trying. Watching them play and giggle seriously makes everything worth it. Right now its all about the special moments, I’ll have the rest of my life to get fit. For now its me and them. 

 

PS: Sorry there is no BittyBentos post today, Adryana is grounded which means ‘no bento’. On a good note here is a couple of pics of the boys.
