Where has the time gone?

I know, I know...it has been a while since I have blogged. But, as some of you may know, with to small children it is not often that I get to sit down alone without having anything to do (technically I have a load of laundry that I have to fold *sigh*).

So, since I have a little bit of spare time in my hands I decided to catch up.

To start the update, I have say that Andy is already 14 months old. Yes, you read correctly..14 months old!!! He started walking the past week and now wants to be on the floor and running around basically all.the.time! Also, he started sleeping more and some nights will sleep through the night, although he has nights where he wakes up once. Nonetheless, that is a huge improvement for how little he was sleeping.

As for Eli, she is almost three years old and with that comes all the *normal* things of a two-almost-three year old girl. She is talking a loooot, started recently on an English school so now she also has phrases in English and is sometimes defiant. Now she thinks that she can count me to time out (a la una...a las dos..!).

The best thing of being a mom of two: seeing how much love these kiddos have for each other! So, even though being a full-time working mom and wife is hard, I wouldn't change it for the world. As cliché as it may sound, it is very difficult for me to imagine my life without them.

Now I need to get back to my mom duties, as tomorrow starts a new week!



P.S. Blogger or my Internet is not letting me upload pics, but as soon as I am able I will update the post. Thanks!

2 months...into 2 under 2!

Baby E turned 2 months on the 4th of this month.

They have been 2 quite...interesting months! We have shared some exciting moments as E hits some milestones, as well as some disappointments, tears, changes, sleep deprivation and some hard times as parents to 2 under 2. But, all in all, I wouldn't change this time for anything in the world!

I am a firm believer in that things happen for a reason and that our circumstances and experiences make us who we are. Even when change makes me afraid before it happens, I am truly grateful for all of the changes I have undergone in my life, especially since I got married. My views of the world have definitely changed over the years.

As for baby E, by 2 months he is already an avid roller from belly to back (cannot leave him alone for even 1sec!), he smiles frequently, he focuses on objects, pushes up from the floor and can hit toys hanging above him! It feels like he is growing up way too fast. Maybe is the fact that he has been wearing 3 month clothes since about 5 weeks old!!

On the other hand, Eli will be 22 months in a few days and she has been talking up a storm.  Around the time baby E was born, she had quite a few words, but nowhere near as to where she is now.  She is starting to put phrases and sentences together, such as "donde está bobo?" (where is paci?), can identify at least 7 body parts and knows at least 7 signs. Sometimes I feel like I don't have a baby anymore.  However, we still need to work on her skills with utensils, social skills and the oh-so-dreaded potty training. 

Can't wait to see what else is in store with these two! :)

Lent {Cuaresma} - time for reflection

This year, Lent started on February 13th with Ash Wednesday, which seemed kind of early. Anyway, being a practicing Catholic I have always kept the no meat on Friday rule during lent, but this year I decided that I wanted to do more.

With that in mind, I decided to give something up as means of reflection and preparation for Holy Week and Easter Sunday. So I chose to give up chocolate, and for those that know me, they know that I truly LOVE chocolate! But that is the point of giving/sacrificing something up.

What are you giving up for Lent, if anything? Or maybe, will you be doing something during Lent that you don't normally do?

I saw this on Facebook and might give it a try. Is something different for the 40 days of Lent to help you get closer to God during this time.  The first day was "Pequeña Renuncia" (Giving something up that you have no use for).  Want to follow this? If you do, let me know how it goes!
