{November 7, 2013}   9 Months- 11 Months

I’m have been soooooo Busy lately I haven’t got to catch up on my blog really at all lately, So let me say sorry to my viewers that have been wondering why they haven’t saw nothing in a while. Have tons to say though lol….First lets say that Ariella my Beautiful baby is growing like a Ivy…And I mean the Ivy’s that grow up trees around houses lmao….She is know 11 months and 2 days old, Next month I cant believe I will be singing Happy Birthday to her, Its going to be the many journeys as a parent. That are Happy one as well as very sad ones Knowing she is growing so fast. I really never could believe anyone when they say “Trust me she will be growing quick, RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES” …When I hold her in my arms know her legs dangle cause she is starting to get so tall, she even stands and is very close to walking now. I could probley say within the week of her birthday she will be walking, she cruises holding onto things know and also has started climbing, which has me on edge every min lol. So just by the little ive said im sure you all have a great idea why I haven’t been on here for a bit. This Halloween she was A Ladybug, Reason being is because when I found out I was pregnant A ladybug was in my bathroom and there was one every week till I had her, So one of her nicknames is ladybug so I thought It would fit, How we found out she was here, to me that ladybug was a symbol of her saying mom you will meet me real soon. 

Wooooweeee Just paused writing this to clean as much as possible got alot done Thank God, Hopefully it stays clean,,,Please oh Please TEHEHEHE…Well a Little more new things about my daughter she know has 8 teeth, she just had 2 pop out on the bottom , so by her first birthday she should actually have those pretty showing pretty good in all her Birthday Pictures. And when I was giving her some teething Gel the other day you can actually feel there will be 2 new one soon but not sure, im thinking after her birthday cause it takes a while for them too show really good.But if your a parent that is going through painful teething problems, The Best stuff that works within 4 minutes is (Little Remedies for teethers) and also to give Motrin 1.25 every 6 hours Just a tip. Also one of my online friends had sent me a ( Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether) and she uses it so much . The older she gets the worse it gets but as a mom you learn what your baby likes the best and you stick with it =)

Oh ya almost forgot I got her saying Baba know so she tells me when she wants one, or if I say ” You want a BABA she has the cutest face when she is saying it back to me..I love her so much, I never thought I would love something so much. But she has made my beliefs change in so many ways. She also follows me everywhere, and will stand up holding on to my leg and give my leg the Biggest of hugs its sweet. And she is a Big hugger, every time I pick her up out of bed or just out of anywhere if im holding her she will. And even beyond that she comes close to momma’s Lips and opens her mouth to kiss…It melts my heart. My husband and I have celebrated our 2nd Anniversary also, and to this day and forever He hold the key to my heart also,  as well as my Doggie Candy she has turned 7 Years old, and still looking Chic for her age. Theres so much to say im going to have to split this into two chapters lmao…. Well I have lots of pictures I will be adding to this to catch you all up with , also will be posting Videos so you can see her adorable personally, also tons of Family pictures, and also pictures of the Homemade food I still make her….. And you all will See a post again on Her birthday….Love you all and Thank you for Viewing…..Love always Christina Cruzpagan..



Hello All, as you all have noticed Ive been on a break from my blog entry’s lately, I need to catch back up on things again. As my Daughters 6th month is Finally here,Cant believe in another 6 months starting the 4th she will be 1 YEAR OLD. Cant believe it ! I’m already in the process of figuring out what all I will be doing for her First Birthday. This is where Pinterest comes into play, my oh oh my I love that web sight. Well where shall I start hmmmmmm, Well new foods I have given her since the last update.. I have made Watermelon which she loves but oh boy is it messy lol, and also Made Peaches and Pears mixed together, what can I say But she loves that mix a lot…Much more than any of the fruits ive made by far already. Also I recently made Acorn Squash she loves that one also. as well as today I made Apples and Pears and than also Nectarines So my Making homemade baby food is going great. I will post some pictures of all the foods Ive made so far so you all could judge yourself how ive been doing.Also she has been using a sippy cup know, =( Too soon… Besides that about 3 weeks ago my hubs and I went to target and we came across this cute Play mat and My hub said I should get it at first I thought where would we have space for it, than once I opened it. It was too cute to put back so it was Ariella’s from that point on lol. Well the next day my husband went off to work and I decided to put her down on it, not thinking she would sit up right away, But she did. A couple times she layied back and messed up but she was siting correctly for 30 mins as I sat on the floor, know she is up to a good 45 mins. I gave her A new Minney Mouse Learning toy as well and a cute Purse that makes sounds for her Easter. And I think I went through about 40 pics before really paying attention and starting to have tears roll down my face of what A special moment this was. I called my husband quickly to tell him the news and sent him pictures as soon as he came home I showed him and he was in awwww taking pictures also as he could believe it either. I think it was much of a shocker to the both of us. She was sitting up little by little in her car seat when we went out and about but always holding on to something we weren’t sure she could do it 100 percent by her self. But boy did she show us..=) Ever since that which was about a week ago, ever since she has been sitting up so perfect. 2 Weekends ago we took Ariella to the zoo for the first time, she had fun as well as us too, her favorite animal though was a Hog lmao…How I know was because she was starring at them so much and she made the same high pitch sound as she does with Candy my pup to get her attention as she smiles. They kept getting closer and closer, Also she looked at it a lot more at other animals but at first she wasn’t sure were we took her cause she was looking at the plants the trees and all, her daddy thinks she would do good at the Botanical Garden’s lol. But she got the idea after a while. On another subject ! Ariella has cut Two of her bottom teeth, I keep feeling too see if any other ones have poped out but just for know there is two. She isnt doing that bad at teething she does have her moments.She has also got into this grabbing stage where anything you have in your hand she wants to grab away from you and if you pull her away she gets mad hehe…I think its cute. She has also hit her 6 month marker which we had a pre celebration for her, so we got her some toys and it was nice because she understood that they were toys for her, and she started playing with them right away. I love all the new things she has been doing like a lot she has this thing she does too get her sister’s attention A.K.A my pup Candy. She does a loud high pitched squeal which sounds so adorable to get her attention, and when Candy looks she Smiles so Big and giggles at her, and if she by chance doesn’t pay attention at that moment when she does it she will go and go at it till she has got at least a side way look from candy to her lol, Than she is satisfied. Than also last night my pup was curled up with me and than my husband put Ariella next to me on the couch while he went into the kitchen and she was such in a deep sleep, candy licked her hand to make sure she was okay and than after that curled herself right up beside her, yup you all no I took more pictures, will post more asap….
P.S Our 1ST Mothers and Fathers Day both were Amazing also we both made them as special as can be….
Thanks for enjoying our Blog xoxooxox to you all

Just had gotten done cleaning my little girl was trying to keep her entertained lol….

{September 20, 2012}   28-29 week Update, on my Pregnancy

Well  sorry Ive been MIA lately in my own little world counting the weeks down to the T. An have so many emotions running through my mind. I want her here so bad, and at the same time Im wanting her to stay in because feeling her inside of me moving around and looking at my tummy and seeing her, touching her with her having reaction to me and my husband hands on my belly she loves, When we have the doppler out listening to her She always makes herself known by kicking it lol, its so adorable. Im just going to have such a missing piece inside me when she is born but I no that when she is here all of that will be great memories as we are trying for our next one and taking care of her and watching her grow to be a beautiful woman.Well Im right now going to stick to a plan of having her natural with a epidural and any thing else I need for pain, if worse comes to worse than I will opt for a C-section. But Im going to try to do what a woman’s role is at least try my hardest too. Just so I can say That I tried with all my might. My Tears are going to be going as soon as we hit that last week and I don’t even no if im going to be able to sleep that week leading up to her birth. This is something I have dreamed about all my life and to have it come true, god has answered all my prayers as well as my grandfather up above and my husband. I love you 3 very much for making this happen. Also my Obgyn  for sure cant forget her she has lead us down a good patch and helped in alot of ways. I have started on our suitcase already packed all the baby’s clothes as well as all matching headbands and Beanies and socks, And her first coming home outfit. I still have so much to get ready to put in there but as time draws nearer than I can wash the clothes we are taking along ect. Well as for the 28 visit to my Obgyn went really good, prior to that I had to drink a Oral Glucose Tolerance Drink, Fruit punch a 10 ounce bottle, which I wasnt looking forward to that just cause drinks ive had to drink in the past for other tests that I could never hold down. Well this was actually good and I got it down within 10 mins. Do you all remember those Popsicles back in the day called outter pops with the bears on them, its taste just like the juice before you frezze them lol. Well a hour later my husband left work came home to get me and we went down to the doctors office, first off my fav doc came in and talked to us and couldnt believe how big I was her exact words were,(Christina I didnt even notice it was you I had to look twice because from the last time you were here you belly exploded lol) I was looking at here like really ,hehehe but knew she was just in shock how much progress ive made in so less of the time of getting pregnant, and than my husband goes well honey your belly is just going to get larger, I told him be quite in a joking way…But she measured me and to find out at 28 weeks im actually measuring at 29 weeks. So the baby is a week more than what she should be. Which probley means she is going to be a bigger baby. Im hoping not that big, I want all my stuff to go back normal again lol. And she told me after we got done talking about what things have been happening new symptoms in all. She told me as of today every 2 weeks I see you till you hit im 38 wks and than at 39 wks I see her every week till the baby is born…And than I said my goodbyes till next time and went to the lab to get my blood drawn by my favorite phlebotomy tech, she is always so gentle and has never messed up once on me..Well today its in my 29 week, and I called for the results and I dont have gestational diabetes at all, this baby is doing so good..Im so happy…Well on my husband and I first wedding anniversary I got surprised the 3 days before with being able to go see the baby on our last 4D ultrasound, it was extra special because know we have a closer image of what she is going too look like when she comes out, they say at this time its best to see what she will look like when she is born. And all I got to say is WOW. She couldn’t be as perfect as I ever thought in my life. The first Image we saw was her foot right on top of her head, lol. Theres a pic for you all to see. We had got 48 pics in all done. Which Im glad cause they have captured her smiling, yawning her feet, her girl parts, her profile, her daddy’s lips and nose lol. We also got a DVD and a bag of goodies lots of mags in some breastfeeding things. Im highly recommending Peek a BOO 3D in Fredericksburg there Websight is

The lady who does the ultrasounds actually is the one who owns the place and she is so sweet and takes the extra time out for you to make sure you get the best pictures and experience as possible.Well after that my husband and I went to go eat at Longhorn Steakhouse and to starbucks, was a really nice day we had together. As midnight stricks on the 17th we gave each other our anniversary gifts, For paper Gifts we he had made me real prudy origami  Red Roses and put some rose oil on them so they smelled real it was really romantic and they came out so fancy looking. As for my paper Gift for him I had made a Scrapbook that I have been saying I was going to make forever lol, but finally did to make it extra special when I did give it to him. Than we each had got each other one real nice gift, He got me a real expensive set of ear rings from zales which match a Heart Bracelet he had got for me on Valentines Day, it melted my heart, But at the same time I was thinking omg cause we had both got each other something from zales on the same holidays as before this would be the second time we did this. But I got him a really nice watch from zales to and he actually loved it, I was kinda nervous to give it to him, cause its hard to make sure you got the right thing for a man. But I did good YAY… And for our Anniversary which was September 17th, we went to the Baltimore Aquarium was really kool we looked through through the whole thing and took lots of pictures it was close to a pier which was beautiful. After spending a wonderful Day we ended it with a special dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, Was so good. And than we drove home and watched our baby’s dvd on TV And Unwrapped our top layer of our wedding cake. And how everyone says it taste horrible I found out a way to do it where it was in the freezer for a month and It came out tasting like the day that we had got it for our wedding..I will post step by step in a blog on its own…So you soon to be married couples have this to use, I cant believe how long this butter cream lasted. Plus there’s pictures of my cake also so you can see how perfect it was when my husband cut into it.Well as I bring this to a end wanted to update you with my side effects as of know. Just been having hot and cold flashes really bad, feeling like my stomach is stretching more than ever, which makes my stomach so sore, and Leg cramps real bad, and my normal back and leg related stuff from before the pregnancy. As of that Ariella has so close to being here so you all as well as us welcoming her into the world….
