So it's been a while....

Sorry I haven't blogged much, I have been busy. Last week I took Taylor to Milford Beach with my friends Alicia, Alley and Natalie. We had a great time and I was glad to be able to hang out with them a little bit. The next day I took care of my little new guy for the first time, i don't have to do watch him until next week because they are on vacation. It was great we did crafts, we ran around outside and baked a little. He is so well behaved!! I couldn't have asked for a better kid to watch to make it easy to watch him and Tay.

This weekend we went to NY for Martins Birthday and it was great. We bbq'ed, went swimming and just hang out as a family. I love going I always have such a great time. I drove both ways because I never like mom to drive because shes wicked tired from working all of the time and Scott had food poisoning so It was either me or Taylor,...I got chosen.

Taylor got so sick though! He has baddddd diarhea and vomiting I felt so bad for him, I have been cleaning up after him all day long. I left my car keys in my mothers car from driving to NY so i had no car and no way to get pedialite! So i called my sister the life saver and sure enough she brought me some from CVS. *Thank you I owe you

Today is a great day my friends.

Hello loves! Gosh Today is great, but only really for my night but here goes the day..

I woke up at around 5:45 and made my way over to Ana's house to watch her kids until 1030isham. Ben was hilarious as always and very well behaved today. (I didn't mention Belly because shes ALWAYS a good girl)

Me: "Ben you got a haircut? It looks great!!"
Ben: "Yeah! I had to get it because my hair was dirty, nasty and had bugs in it"

Ana wash your son (hahaha im kidding)

After coming home from that I hung out with Licky all day and ate Mac and Cheese. (not all day i was just mentioning what we had lol) THEN Alley came along and we putted around and they told me all about their vaca. I was jealous of course, you can't just pick up and go on vacation with your friends when you have a just doesn't work that way. So then i showered after they left and got ready and went on my interview for Nannying.

I must say I really really like the family. I will be watching a 2 year old boy that is absolutely adorable. Just a few days a week and I have a feeling it is going to work out really good, he seems really mellow! The father is a cop in manchester and the mother works at AAA. All in all we just all got a long so well, It was like we knew each other already because all we were doing was joking around with each other and just had a good time on an interview, who wouldve thought that wouldve been possible? I can't wait, I start July 7th.

Enough about that, tomorrow I'm going to the beach! yayy! With Alicia and Alley, I should probably hang out with Jess this week because I feel bad I haven't hung out with her in a few days. I really like that Alicia always helps me with Taylor when she is around, she plays with him and always wants to hold him. She is very helpful.

Alright goodnight, I'll tell you how the beach goes. OH and by the way its going to be crappy weather other than tomorrow so enjoy it. I feel like we live in seattle lately!

Howdy darlings
Another busy weekend passed..
Sunday=family festitivites.
Sunday we went to Scotts Dad's house for Scott's stepsisters graduation party (from middleschool). He lives in Burlington so it is quite a hike everytime. Scott's Stepmom and Dad bought Taylor something before he was born..they gave it to him yesterday even though they wanted to save it for his first birthday.. check it out

Pretty Neat huh? I wish they made it in my size, it lights up and vibrates like its taking off! So what else I have an interview on Wednesday Night to watch a little boy in South Windsor and I am stoked! I hope that i get it it would be fun and give me some extra cash. Wish me luck

As always heres some pictures of my cutie patooty..


This post is Dedicated to My big brother Martin! Happy Belated Birthday (only on my blog spot because i am not Rob, and i did call you on your day) I guess I should tell you a little bit about Martin since everyone that reads this probably doesn't know him...
Martin is the hardest worker besides Mom that i know. He is a great father and a spectacular Husband (or so I've heard..). He loves cars (in particular BMW's) and cooking. He tries to figure EVERYTHING out, he was taking toy cars apart and putting them back together by age 5. He can entertain himself, you give him something to do he will master it.
Martin and I are approx. 7 years apart whoa you say that's a lot you probably don't have a lot in common huh? WRONG, he is a kid at heart, he can get a long with a 3 year old as well as a 75 year old. He is the funnest guy I know and i love being around him!
Martin often tells me that he would always make sure that my zipper was up on my coat when i was little and it was cold outside, it was like he took care of me and i took care of him. While he would work on cars outside our long island home when we were younger, I would always make sure that he had something to snack on or something to drink. I would walk to 711 and get snacks for us. I think both him and Analia were the only ones that didn't think i was an annoying tag along.
Martin also has a funny sense of humor and a hilarious laugh. (he giggles) He laughs at his joke book in the bathroom and then calls me and tells me the jokes. One day when we all lived together he put saran wrap around the toilet before my sister went to the bathroom and she peed on herself. hahhaha He is always one to crack a joke or make a wise comment. He loves that part in Raising Helen where the little boy says "thats it! HIPPOS GOIN OUT THE WINDOW!" haha, because he is that little boy. lol
Martin is also very helpful, he is the first one to ask if anything needs fixing at moms house. He also helps everyone with their cars since he is an expert. When we found out i was pregnant he was the first one to help me find a car. He called and didn't give me grief or give me a problem just said to me " if your going to make this a habbit should i get you a mini van??" to which of course i replied "no!!" He bought all these things for the car and cleaned it all. He also fixed some things on it and when i came for my birthday and to pick it up he surprised me with it all. I remember Martin doing my math homework when I was young and helping me with projects, he once made this amazing kite that I'm sure my teacher doubted that i had anything to do with. He has always been the first one to defend me in our family squabbles, like literally fight with the rest of the family to defend me.
I think i could go on forever but i would probably bore everyone with my sappy sum it up i love my big brother and im grateful for all the things you do for me. i couldn't have asked for a better brother. Happy Birthday! I can't wait to come celebrate this weekend!

Hello darlings! I have to talk a little about last night before i proceed to today....

Last night Scott went out with his friends like usual (my friends are on vaca so i don't mind) and we went to bed VERY late because Rob was over due to a little squabble with Monica (but that's another story for another day,..we wont go there) I think we went to bed at 3ish. (I go to bed usually at like 9o'clock ha ah, i like sleep) Anywhoo, Scott has a really bad sleep walking/talking problem which most people would find creepy, i usually mess with him and just go along with what he says. WELL..Last night we were sleeping and he JUMPED out of the bed and yelled "THERES A SNAKE IN THE BED!" having Taylor in bed with us, of course my only reaction was to jump out of bed as fast as possible and assess the situation...I didn't realize until today that he was actually sleep walking and i would've been comfortable in bed instead of sleeping on the couch. But after he said that I said "WHERE? AND IS THAT POSSIBLE??" he said "I SWEAR I JUST SAW IT, I THINK IT WAS IN THIS BED.." and that's what got me thinking, and maybe it was because it was the middle of the night that i didn't think about that comment until this morning. Anyway, he searched the bed cautiously and said that he saw it again (i was standing there and he definitely did not see it, but he was throwing the comforter around so i just figured i wouldn't take a risk) After i threatened him that i would stay here because this story was pretty ridiculous he told me to take the chance if i wanted to but he was out of there...(i was scared and too tired to think) Again he insisted that he saw it and so he went to the closest couch to sleep on, and i got stuck with the small couch with the baby and no blanket but he was sleep walking so he wasn't going to be considerate at that point, so i sat there for a few minutes and went to the couch downstairs where Rob was playing video games (it must have been like 430 by then) and so i ignored the stealing of cars video game and went to sleep there and then. You think that this story is over huh? Think again, about an hour later Scottie comes running downstairs looks over at the couch where im sleeping and yells "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" I say "SLEEPING WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE I'M DOING??" and so he walks away and goes and sleeps in the other room. OVERALL the worst night of his sleep walking other then the incidents where he has picked me up while i have been sleeping(while i was pregnant may i add) and dropped me on the other couch.


Today was very very very boring. I should've had a garage sale Ana because i didn't even end up going to Scott's Dads house, we are going tomorrow instead. I cleaned the room since the whole flooding thing happened and that's really about it...we went to Walmart later on after Scott went fishing to buy baby food. We were supposed to go to a party tonight and mom was going to babysit but i got tired, i really have no desire to go to this shindig and i really need to get out of the house but no thanks. I will pass.

i hope everyone had a good weekend!

Fridays are always blahh for me

Last Night Taylor Fell asleep on me like this, It was so funny!
So today, Lets see...Last night Taylor slept pretty good, he woke up once! He cuddled with Scott all night because we have been sleeping in the guestbed due to some flooding in the basement type thing. This morning he woke up around 8ish, had the usual breakfast and then my friend Jess came over so that i could straighten her hair for her sisters graduation and just because she is curly sue and needed some straightening. She ended up looking gorgeous!! I love my straightener, it does wonders. Anyhoo, then we had a quick Dr's appt. and then went to Analias house. Today was our day to make jam, well we farted around on the computer for a little and then Ana left with Scott to do something important so I watched the kids. I have to admit, Ana has a LOT of patience, it must be so incredibly hard to raise a 3 year old. (I am glad to wait) Ben was actually really really good today though, I have to admit I did a lot of bribing haha. What else what else, After Ana got home we made jam and when ben woke up from his name he was a bit cranky... these were some of the quotes hahhaah....
Ben: "My toy is broken mom!!!!!!"
Frustrated Analia: " We have to fix it then Ben, Let me see"
Ben: : "No! Its not broken mom!"
Frustrated Analia: "Yes Ben thats enough, thats what we get for buying it from the 99 cent store if we had bought it from toys r us for 25 dollars it would be working right now and not broken by the first afternoon we bought it!"
Ben: "NO ITS NOT BROKEN MOM! (crying.)
Frustrated Analia: "Yes Ben! Look its made in China! Thats why its broken everything breaks thats from china!"
Ben: " Yeah It's made in china! Its broken!"

It was the funniest conversation , I'ms ure i left something out, I was almost crying.......

Ben after i bribed him....and threatened to take away his chinese toy hahaha

Taylor and Belly playing, they love playing with each other!
And the favorite Niece...
Happy Friday Everyone! P.s. the other sister made a blogspot..check her out!

Thursday, June 19, 2008


Hola! I was a slacker and didn't write anything yesterday but in my defense I was EXHAUSTED from waking up at 5 am to go running...WOAH 5? you ask, correct you read it right. I have been excellent in my eating selections the last 2 days and I am going to go running tonight instead of at 5 am this morning because that kills me to say the least. Yesterday I took Analia up on her offer to go Strawberry picking and it was great! Everyone else was so much better at it but I got delicious strawberries that scott is raving about, and even bragging at work. Taylor and Belly were sitting together eating the grass. After I was done being a farmer I came home and took a well needed nap with my little tot here and after we woke up I met a friend at the park to swing ont he swings, i stayed for like literally 10 minutes because I didnt' want to miss Scott when he came home...So I went home and we ate a healthy healthy dinner together.

Today- Today i was very lazy, I was supposed to go make jam with ana but i totally slept as much as i could with Taylor because we had a ROUGH night last night and the whole 5 am fiasco. Later on my friend kept texting me and begging me to go do errands with her and her baby so I did and then we went to the park and scott met us there. Taylor loves the swing! Thennnn we went to Old Navy to look for something for her baby to wear to her sisters graduation tomorrow. I really like hanging out with Jess because shes my age and I always wanted a friend that i can relate to so bad, and finally i found her! sounds so corny lol. Here are some other pictures of my little munchkin...He has been so out of his routine and i dont know how to put him back into it, its terrible!

Eating my fruits and veggies..

Today was actually quite boring, Tay and I woke up very early after a long night of whining and tossing and turning...I think it was gas. Scott got our early today too so we hung out with him and took a family nap was much needed. Taylor did a lot of walking in the walker and smiling like always. I wish i had more creative ideas of what i should do with him during the day...any ideas anyone? (assuming anyones even reading this other than ana lol) I got pretty hooked on Digital scrapbooking today now I want to print some things out. Around 4ish when we woke up from our naps Scott took Taylor to see his grandmother (scotts mother Dee) and I took a nice long shower without any babies crying or any questions on how to do anything (scott) and then i was off to my moms job to pick up a check and then to pick her Jenny Craig food up. If only I could be on that, I definately need to do something but it is really expensive. *(grr) After that I went to pick my wallet up at Alleys house but nobody was home so that was sucky too. So home I am after we went to stop n shop real quick to get some healthy fruits and veggies because I am going to go on a vegetable and fruit diet for a week before I start eating healthy because I read online thats what your supposed to do first i guess. I wish i was my old size again, it makes me so depressed to look in the mirror and think i could have prevented it by not eating so much during my pregnancy. People say " you are eating for two" but its really not meant to be literally lol. I found out the hard way. Tomorrow morning I am setting my alarm for 5 to go running before the day without Taylor in the jogger because I think i'll run further. Lets cross our fingers that something works.. I have been looking at pictures on my computer to remind me how skinny I was ...i hope that i will get so depressed that i will change hahah.welll.... Wish me luck and any suggestions would be appreciated!

And here are some pictures from that trip..

Grandma Dee's boyfriend gave Taylor a Firefighter Hat! (he is a volunteer)
My sister in law crystal and I

Me and My sister Cecilia..

Taylors first time at the beach!

I'll add more later..

Good Morning

I've noticed that people don't really write in their blogs about everyday, so i guess i will be just about the only one . I think it's really because I'm going to treat this as a journal and ignore that people are going to read it also and then print out the copies to make a book of life after baby. Today Taylor slept until 9:30!!! I was loving it and hoping it would last forever but darn diaper had to leak and cause him to be uncomfortable! (I haven't slept through the whole night since i was about 7 months pregnant..i wake up frequently to feed this little boy) I took some pictures today..I just love his smile! (well and everything else that comes along with him) Well today is Taylor's 8Th month being alive and it is so incredible how time has flew by...4 more months and he will be 1! ..but he will remain my baby until another one comes along which will not be for a very very long time! Last week Taylor and I went to my sister Cecilia's house with my brothers fiance Monica and Matthew (their son) for 3 days and 2 nights and we had such a blast! We spent our days at the beach, and or Cecilia's pool with the babes. Taylor enjoyed the beach but the other babies didn't, i think his favorite part was eating the sand though i served him a cookie and he thought he would add the touch of sand. Dad went with us which was nice because I want him to be in Taylor's life as much as possible, just because things didn't work out for him being dad shouldn't mean that he can't be the best grandfather. I love going to NY except for the drive and that Scott was stuck working which always feels guilty when I'm having a good time. (he assures me that it is my job to have fun with Taylor and enjoy him and that i shouldn't feel guilty) Another really bad part about traveling is that he is so out of his routine that he thinks that when 7pm rolls around that it is NOT bedtime but it is indeed time to play. So this weekend coming up is my big brother Martins birthday, so another trip to NY is in order. (Mom, Scott, Rob and Monica are also coming, ...Scott and Ana? are you coming??) I love visiting the new yorkers though but it is not a time to relax as most vacations are, actually its quite hectic with so many kids around and might i ad VERY loud. I feel like I'm rambling but Taylor is sleeping so I am trying to get as much in as possible.
I just remembered that we had a doctors appointment for him this morning, I called last week and told them that I believe that Taylor has selective hearing (just like most boys) or something going on because I feel like he hears me but ignores me so they insisted on bringing him to make sure that he has no liquid in his ears. (his grandmother is deaf so sometimes i worry) Dr. Bush is so good to get him in , he is my favorite doctor ever and if he could take me i would so be his patient.

Father's Day

Happy Fathers Day! Well today was Scotts 1st fathers day, last year we sort of celebrated but I was 7 months pregnant and I wasn't ready to really celebrate it because I hadn't come to terms that I was going to be a mother which meant that Scott would be a father. We celebrated it nice though, we got him an electric razor and a hat that he has been eyeing, he was very pleased with is gifts.

On most holidays we try to go to Scotts grandmothers house which is like a block away so that everyone can pass Taylor around and visit with Scotts family. Today we had a bunch of fun, Scott was off playing volleyball with most of the men and I sat and chit chatted with Scotts Stepmother and Grandma and Grandpa and we shared stories on how we met our significant others. I want to make sure to write down all of the stories so that I can make some sort of book since scott knows nothing about his family which is sad but hey hes a boy so i shouldnt expect it. I ate so much I think that I look like im 4 months pregnant from all the food lol ... then I got home from eating all that food to my mothers homemade ice cream cake, it was her first time making it and it was absolutely delicious! so now we are just relaxing and tay is sleeping sooo im going to maybe do like a survey type thing....

My first post...

Hello y'all, Today is my first day on this thing and so far it seems pretty neat.
So Analia told me that I write just like I would in my journal, so here I go..

Today Scott, Taylor and I went to the South Windsor Strawberry & Craft festival, it was verrrrrry hot. We got taylors caracature done which looked absolutely nothing like him, i think i could've done a better job.(But we felt bad because nobody visited the artists "booth" the entire time we were there so we said what the hey poor guy). There was a crap load of jewelery (needless to say i wanted it all) and other neat things. What else?... i went to the mall during the crazy storm and I think i stayed like 20 minutes because I carried Taylor the whole time and it was packed and annoying. Then when i got home i gave tay din din and then sleep he went....or so i thought until my brother Rob came to visit with his baby and they woke Taylor up.. bah. Scott got home a little later and stayed while i went to Target. Target is my favorite store EVER, i wish i couldve stayed longer but Taylor gets cranky at night if im not around so i grabbed what i needed and on i went...

I'll write more later i guess.
