15 months

Really can't believe that 15 months has come and gone. I remember Faith at 15 months and I just felt like she was so grown up. Maybe because Noah is our last baby, I don't feel like 15 months is grown up at all. He is still very much a baby. He is my baby and I am holding onto every last ounce of him being a baby. Never the less he is growing up, and here is what is going on with my Squish... Noah, You are 15 months old and weigh about 26-27lbs ( we will find out on Jan 2nd ) You wear 18-24 month clothes. Some 2t also. You have a whole mouth full of teeth. Seriously! A freaking mouth full. You are still a biter, but are getting a lot better about not biting. ( please note, you do not bite while nursing. You just bite everything else) You wear a size 6.5 extra wide shoe. Finding shoes for you is a nightmare. You are obsessed with cars. All kinds of cars. They are overtaking my house. But I don't mind because I adore the way you make your little car noises when you play with them. You are one tough cookie. Since you are such a dare devil, and have no fear, you fall A LOT! But you usually don't cry, and if you do it is for a second and then you are off again. You are still nursing and I don't think we will be stopping anytime soon. :) You are sleeping through the night still. You are showing interest in going potty on the potty chair. You even pooped in the potty the other day. I was so proud. But not as proud as your big sissy was. She adores you. You have already had two hair cuts since you turned one. And you barely have any hair. As soon as one curl pops up or one piece of hair touches your ears it is time for a cut. You still don't really care for veggies and or fruits. The only way I can get you to eat anything like that is in those stupid little pouches. UGGH. You climb onto everything. I spend most of my day chasing you and trying to keep you out of trouble. You really enjoyed Christmas this year. You LOVED opening gifts and signed please over and over wanting us to take everything out of the box right away. You are saying a handful of words and still signing. I am really working on saying more words though. You love reading yours books that make noises. You are a complete and total HAM. You have the cheesiest smile and it makes me laugh every single time you do it. We love you so much baby brother....

14 months old

Noah James, You my son, make my heart so happy. You are a Momma's boy to the MAX. But you are slowing starting to go with other people. You still cry every time I drop you off at MOPS. And you are usually crying when I pick you up. You are walking everywhere. You can't stand for me to carry you. You are a climber. You would climb up the walls if you could. You can sign " More, all done, milk, water, eat, night night, and up " You can say " momma, dada, sis, this, TuTu, touchdown, ball, and Book " ( There could possibly be a couple more things, but I am forgetting right now. Oh wait, You can also say NO. ;) You are wearing a size 5 diaper. I am scared that you will be in depends before you are potty trained. YIKES! You LOVE your big sister, but lately the two of you have been bickering. You are wearing a size 6 xw shoe.You are wearing 18- 24 month clothes, and some 2T. You are still nursing a couple times a day. You sleep in your own room still, but every morning you wake up around 7am, and get back in bed with me. You nurse and then fall back asleep. Those are my favorite moments. You are into everything. You can open the doors in our house, you can turn the bathtubs on, you play in the toilet, and you try to climb up the stove. You are trouble with a capital T!!!! You are seriously adorable. I am not just saying this because I am your mom, but we can't go anywhere without people stopping us to tell us how cute you are. You Bite. But we are slowly working on it, and I think it has gotten a little better. You are finally starting to like it when I read you books. You are obsessed with cars, and balls. You have had two hair cuts now, even though you don't have a lot of hair. I can't stand when little boys hair touches their ears.You weigh about 27lbs, and I am not sure how long you are. I know that you are growing though because we aren't having to roll your pants legs as often. You can't stand if someone else is getting my attention. If one of the dogs even sits in my lap, you feel the need to come over and take over. We love you sweet baby boy....
There are so many days where I hate being a stay at home mom. No joke, I really do. I miss the adult interaction. I miss not financially contributing to my family, I miss my friends, and I miss just having a little bit of "me time" But at the end of each and every day, I quickly change my mind and realize how blessed I am to have these two beautiful children in my life. I am so lucky to be able to stay at home with them and help and watch them grow. They drive me absolutely crazy, but they are my everything.

Instagram hump day dump day

I am really liking Instagram, and since I suck majorly at taking pics with my Nikon and blogging I thought I would post some pics from my iPhone. ( how about that for a run on sentence? )

Happy birthday to my sweet baby boy

Noah James,
You are a year old. Time went by so quickly. I look at you and I still still a newborn baby. You have been such a blessing to our family. We are all in love with you.
You are such a happy, funny little guy. You didn't start out like that, and boy oh boy I remember the first couple if months where I thought that nothing made you happy. You cried all the time. You hated the car, you hated the swing, you hated bottles, you pretty much were unhappy in general. I felt like because you we're such a high maintenance little guy everyone was really stand offish to you. Leaving me, to be your everything. I won't lie, sometimes it is very overwhelming to be the only person who can do anything for you. But other times I kinda like it. ;) I had a really hard time adjusting to life with two kids, staying at home and having a fuss bucket of a baby. But now here we are a year later, and I am so happy. You are so funny. I love watching you learn and grow. I am so thankful that I get to be with you and your sister now.
You are wearing 18-24 month clothes.
You wear a 5.5 xw shoe ( baby Shaq)
You wear a size 4 diaper
You are still nursing like a champ, with no end in sight right now( that is another post for another day )
You can say a couple words like "momma, dada, sis, this, book, "
You can sign a couple things, but defiantly don't sign as much as Faith did.
You are a dare devil. You will climb up on anything and it scares me! I am pretty sure you will give me my first grey hair.
You are such a good eater. You love to eat meat. You will get fruits and veggies, but not as good as meat.
You are starting to walk. You took your first steps for your daddy and then it seems like everyone saw it before I did.
You still crawl more than walk,but it won't be long until you are walking full time.
You are sleeping in your own crib in your own room finally!!!!!
You sleep 12-14 hours!
You take one 2-3 hour nap during the day.
You weigh 24lbs15 oz (90%) and are 30 inches (75%)
You have nine teeth now. One of your molars just popped through. We are now waiting for five other teeth that look like they are coming any day now.
You got your first hair cut on your birthday. It looks so cute!
You have a thing for cars and trucks. You even push them around and make car noises. It is so cute.
If I ask you for a hug or a kiss, you will do it. I love your open mouth slobbery kisses.
You love wrestling with your daddy.
Your sister can make you laugh harder than anyone else can.
This year has been a tough one for us, but one of the best years because of you sweet boy.
You are my Squishy Pot Pie... I love you baby boy.....

Love, mommy

I promise one day I will be a better blogger

We have a lot of stuff going on right now. My grandma is not doing good at all and we are trying to spend as much time with her before she passes. Faith and I are having a pretty hard time dealing with this. Faith started her fall dance class, and will also be starting tball in the next few weeks. I am busy planning Noah's first birthday party, and I am doing a crappy job planning. I am just so overwhelmed with everything else that is happening.... But I will leave yall with some pictures of my super cute kiddos

11 freaking months

Say it aint so. There is no way that my sweet baby boy is 11 months old. The time has flown by, and it hurts my heart. :( Noah James, You are 11 months old. You still sleep in our bed. We are ok with that. You are actually getting better about falling asleep for your Daddy instead of just me. YAY! You still wake up a couple times a night to nurse. You are into everything. You can crawl up the stairs, and are trying to crawl on the couch. You are standing unassisted sometimes, but I honestly don't think that you will be walking before your first birthday. You wear size 18-24 month clothes. Your foot is a 5.5 extra wide. You wear a size 4 diaper. You LOVE to eat meat. I mean LOVE it! You are my free spirit. You have no fear. You weigh about 25 1/2 lbs You bite all the time and think it is so funny. You don't bite my boobs, just anything and everything else. You still only have 8 teeth, but your molars are coming in. You are really a funny little guy, and make us laugh all the time. We love you so much Noah James

10 year high school reunion

I am getting old! Ten years have passed since I graduated high school. I didn't know if I actually wanted to go to the reunion or not . Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed high school, but I moved out of Bastrop two weeks after I graduated and I haven't been back. I grew up and made new friends. I keep up with people from high school on Facebook, but it isn't the same as some of the people there that still live in Bastrop and still hang out with their high school friends all the time.
Well, I had a couple people FB me and ask me to please go, so I decided that I would go to one of the events that my class was hosting. I am really glad that I went. I had a great time and saw some old friends. Here are a couple picks that I took with my phone that night. On the way home I got pulled over for having my high beam lights on. I got away with just a warning, but I so glad that I didn't drink at all!

Summer dance performance 2012

Faith had her summer dance performance this evening. I can't believe this is her second summer in dance. She really loves dancing, and it makes my heart happy to see her dance. I only took pics with my iPhone, because Damian said they would be good enough. ( I don't think they are )

You are such a blessing to our family. We are already planning your first birthday party with your PoPo.
Here is what is going on with you this month.

-you are such a snuggler. I love it.
- you still are nursing at least twice during the night.
- you are about 24lbs and about 29inches long

- you wear 18-24 month clothes.
- you still wear a size 4xw shoe.

- you are into everything. You even try to pick the outlet covers off!
- you crawl, pull up on everything and a couple times I have seen you stand unassisted.

- you love to go swimming.
- you have started crawling up the stairs.

Happy birthday Emilio

Today is Emilio's second birthday. He is such a pain in the butt, but Faith is head over heals in love with this dog. And he loves our kids, and is so good with them. We are so lucky to have this sweet goofy boy

Look alikes

Faith is a spitting imagine of her dad. Yea, as she gets older you can see some of my features coming out in her, but for the most part she looks just like Damian. Noah on the other hand looks so much like my side of the family. His skin is pretty pale considering he is 1/2 Hispanic, and his hair is a little lighter. He looks a lot like my Poppa as a little boy. Check out the resemblance.

I am still alive

I was doing good with my blogging, but have slipped up again. I have pretty much been a single mom for the past four days and it is kicking my butt. Damian has been up and out of the house working before we get up and working until after I put the kids to bed. I am tired, and grouchy. It isn't that I don't love my kids or enjoy staying home with them. It is just that I never get just a few minutes to myself. I try to tell myself that it won't be like this forever, but it doesn't work. Damian thinks that me going to the grocery store at 11pm at night is me time. I think that is what annoys me the most. When Damian is home, I still am the one doing almost everything. I feel bad for him because he works so much. So I let him just do his own thing. But it starts to bother me later. I know he works hard, but so do I. I can't keep up. I am drowning in this cluttered house and it seems like I just can't stay on top of it. Ok, vent over. Instead of blogging I could have probably done the dishes.

Penny update

Well, Faith pooped the penny out tonight. ;) Just thought I would share.. I wouldn't share the picture that we took of it. You better believe that we are keeping that penny!

9 months old

Nine months is always the hardest for me. I feel like at nine months you are teetering on the cusp of a year. My baby will be one in just three short months. It went by way to fast. It makes me so sad to think that Noah is my last baby. Never again will I experience all the things I am getting to experience with him now. TEAR......... Noah James, - You have been a BUSY boy this past month. - You started crawling on June 1st. You army crawled for one day and then took off on all fours after that. You are so cute when you crawl. It doesn't seem like you are all that fast, but you get to where you need to go. One minute you are in the living room and the next minute you are in the kitchen. So clearly you can book it when you need to. - You have also started pulling up and standing on everything. You even let go for a split second. - You are still wearing size 4 diapers. I am really starting to think I don't want to cloth diaper you. I know that it would save us so much money, but I feel like I save so much money not using formula, or feeding jarred baby foods. So give me a break. ;) - You still sleep in our bed, and we don't see you leaving anytime soon. It works for all of us, and I really don't care what other people say. - You drink out of your sippy like a PRO. Still no bottle. - You have also given up your Paci. You never really liked it. You have been without it for almost a month now. - If I had to guess I would say you weigh about 24lbs. We will see at your 9 month check up on Monday. - Your hair is really growing in. It is going to be thick like your daddy's. - You are still very much a momma's boy, but you will settle for your daddy or your PoPo. - You are an amazing eater just like your sissy. I really believe that has to do with not feeding any jarred baby foods. - You wear 18 month cloths - You love story time at the library, and are super outgoing when we are around all the other little kids. - You have also learned how to clap this month. It is so cute. - You have learned to sign "milk", "up" and "more" this month. I am so proud. - You say Dada all the time. Your daddy thinks that it is because you love him best, but we all know you are just trying to make him feel better. ;) - You think Sissy is so funny. You laugh and laugh at her. Dance class is almost as much fun for you as it is for her. - You are so strong. You can throw things across the room. So far it is always with your left hand. We will see how that changes. - You are such an angel. I am so in love with you little boy. We all are.

My piggy bank

Faith swallowed a penny today. Most people I tell this to can't believe that Faith actually did this. But, she did. I spent a good chunk of my afternoon in the pediatrician's office. Dr. C said we could go get an xray to be sure she ate it, and to see where it was at. I opted out of the xray. I know she ate it, and I didn't want to stress her out anymore than she already was. So we got sent home with a bucket, some gloves and some tounge depressors. So, for the next week we will be sifting through Faith's poop to see if we find the penny. If for some reason it doesn't come out, we will go back to the doctor and see what our next step is. I seriously, can't believe she swallowed a penny.

I wish he would slow down

I really wish that Noah would slow down just a little. He is growing up so fast. He has been crawling for about three weeks now, and today he started pulling all the way up. Look how proud he is of himself!

My baby girl is growing up

We didn't pierce Faith's ears when she was a baby because I always wanted her to make that choice. I figured that she would probably be 7 years old when she wanted it done. BUT, oh no! Faith has been talking about getting her ears pierced for a couple weeks now. So tonight, we decided to take her to get them done.
She of course picked out ”diamonds”. She climbed up the chair like a big girl and really did pretty well. She did so good with the first ear, and was a little nervous about the second one, but did great.
When we were checking out, she was looking in mirror, smiling and dancing. She was so happy she got her ears pierced. The girl who did them was so sweet and patient. When we left Faith said ” thank you for piercing my ears”.
We celebrated with a yummy cupcake from Hey Cupcake.
  I am so happy that we made a special memory for my baby girl today.

Rub a dub dub

Three little Cuellar's in a tub

Blogging from my phone

Hells yeah! I might actually blog more now that I have the blogger app on my phone. This is awesome. Right at this very second I am nursing Noah, and blogging from my phone.
  We are headed out to Movie in the Park in a bit. Tonight is Puss n Boots. I really wanted to see this movie, but right now I am wishing I was going to bed early....

Please say a prayer

Please say a prayer for this beautiful little boy. Our friends/ neighbors welcomed this sweet baby boy into the world yesterday and he is now at Dell Children's Hospital having a procedure on his heart. He will undergo open heart surgery in a couple weeks to fix his little heart. He has transposition of the great vessels. Everyone knows how heart issues in babies are very near and dear to me. I have just been sick, worried about this sweet angel.

Wish List Wednesday

Today there is only one thing that I really wish for, and that is a MAID.
