Sleepy time

Right now I am babysitting both of the babies and they are both sleeping like peaceful angels. I love moments like this. In case you didn't know my sister had a baby in June and I am helping her while she goes to work. I've been working twice as hard with two little babies but it is totally worth it. I am thankful that I can be at home raising these little angels :) I love the sweet spirits babies bring into the room. I feel so close to my Heavenly Father. Have a great Wednesday. I am so excited for the weekend.

First month with baby

I have a confession. First month with the baby was the hardest experience I've experienced in a while. Let me explain. First off I had to have a C-section and it was tough for me because I have never spent so much time in the hospital nor have I ever had surgery. Not only did I have to recover from major surgery now I had to care for a new life! :) A blessing that I'm very grateful for (we had been praying for a little one ever since we got married). All I'm saying is that having a C-section is a lot of pain and it takes much longer to recover from a vaginal birth. I've heard this from many women I know personally so I'm not just making this up. The next reason why it was so hard is I think the first month you worry so much about the baby and you are new and constantly learning every day. I still am learning but now I'm more in a routine and Timothy has a much better schedule now. I am not complaning I am just being honest because truth be told this is the biggest change that's occured in my life besides getting married. It takes me a while to adjust to change but once I get it down I feel like I accomplished something great. I am so happy and proud of my hubby and I. We are raising a beautiful child, and living in our dream house. I am very thankful and I can't believe Timothy is about to be 4 months old in two weeks. :) We love you so much Timothy and I love seeing your smiley happy face every day. Thanks for being such a good boy.

What a blessing

I am feeling so blessed to be a mother. I absolutely love it so much. Timothy is growing way too fast and I'm extremely happy that he is being such a good boy on most days. I can't believe he weighs around 15 lbs and sleeps through the night. He has been sleeping through the night since he was about 2 1/2 months. I am really lucky that he is such a good happy baby on most days. He brightens my day and gives me a greater purpose on earth. I am so happy that I have a baby to spoil and love unconditionally. I sometimes think that I can't believe Heavenly Father trusted me with such a beautiful child. I continue to be amazed by watching my son grow and learn. I am so thankful that I can stay at home and raise him. I mainly have to thank my husband for that huge blessing. He works so hard for us and is always so loving and understanding to me. I don't think he realizes how much I love and appreciate all he does for us. I love being in love and having a sweet family. Timothy is such a loved little boy and he has two set of grandparents that can't get enough of him. I am a lucky girl and Timothy is a lucky boy. I know every mom says this but I truly mean it. My little son is such a handsome and loving boy. He is photogenic and modeling already at the age of 3 months. Love you BUBS!

Callings in our church

Since Chris and I got released from our calling in nursery back in April we've been calling free! I don't know if that's a good or bad thing but let's just say that I knew it would only be a matter of time before Bishop Clouse gave us a new calling. I am happy to announce that I am a visiting teacher Supervisor. I know it sounds very authoritive but it's quite easy, I'm very excited of what I get to do and how it will help me improve on my visiting teaching. I can honestly say that at first I wasn't very excited but the more I talked to other sisters about it the more I am looking forward to serving the Lord and doing my calling. I need to be better at being positive lately because I feel like I've been grumpy and super sensative. I need to be happy and count my blessing every day. Good night!

Bath Time

You love bath time Timothy. I am so proud of you for being such a good boy and loving the water. Mommy and daddy are very impressed with how well you sit there and enjoy the water. You did not like it for a few weeks. Now you just kick your little feet and sit there loving every minute of it.

Having a baby

Have a baby and it will change your life forever. Seriously. I feel so blessed to have a healthy strong boy home with me. He is my everything and I can't wait for him to call me his momma. But for now him crying to tell me what he wants is just fine. Good night friends. Let's hope the baby sleeps more through the night. He still gets up every four to five hrs. I want him to sleep through the night so bad.

Pregnancy Recap

As I'm sitting here with the baby next to me I couldn't help but think all the hard things I went through in order to have my angel. I'm not writing this so people can think awe poor Perla but I'm doing for myself and for journaling purposes. It's easier for me to type things thant to write them. Yesterday for Fathers Day Timothy and I surprised daddy with a new outfit, a video with our favorite pictures of 2011 and baby pictures, we also made him a book, and breakfast of his choice. It ended up being a 17 minute video because I have so many pictures lucky for me Chris didn't mind because he is just that loving. As I was going through the thousands of pictures I have already taken I couldn't help but realize I can't belive how fast 38 1/2 weeks went by and I am extremly grateful. That's why I'm inspired to write about a recap of the entire 9 months. This had to be one of my biggest trials that I've ever experienced. Let me explain. The first trimester I was feeling nausceous, i throw up many times, and I had a hard time eating good. I was also working and taking classes. I was busy busy and it made it hard for me to get my rest and feel good. I hated how smells made me go crazy and always had the feeling of wanting to barf even though I couldn't. After I got through the first trimester things got better and second trimester was awesome! I wasn't too big and I could eat more things and not feel like throwing up all the time. The weather was beautiful and I was able to sleep normal again. In between second and third trimester I got some pretty upsetting news. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, drs scared me so bad and I had to go on a very depressing hard diet. It's even harder to do it while your pregnant and hormonal. The reason doctors scared me was because they told me I would have to get insulin right away because I had some record highs with the glucose drink test. I had to meet with a diabetes specialist and then do NST tests twice a week, as well as do a fluid check once a week. IT WAS DREADFUL! I hated my doctors office not the first one (Dr. Tutt) but the second one is called PPA (Phoenix Perinatal Associates) I will never go back!!! Hated it with a passion. They were the most unorginized ridiculous place ever. Appointments could take anywhere from an hour to 4 hours. YEAH not even kidding either. Try doing that twice a week I wanted to blow that place up. It was so hard to wake up early on those days and want to go. I have to say I never missed an appointment no matter how tired, or sick I felt. After this experience I felt like never wanting to get pregnant again but then I had my little one and I can tell you that I want lots of little ones because it's totally worth it. They truly are a peace of heaven.
