June 17th...

Yay! I finally got a letter in the mail from US Citizenship and Immigration...I go in for my citizenship ceremony on June 17th in Salt Lake!
It has taken us almost 6 years for this day to arrive so I couldn't be happier! Now our next step after that is for all of us to get passports so we can travel...

Did I mention I love America? I really do!

2 weeks...

We took Anna to her 2 week appt today (although she's not officially 2 weeks until 1:23 am tomorrow morning) and here are her stats:

Height- 21.75inches (she was 20.5 inches at birth)
Weight- 8lbs 2oz (she was 7.7 at birth and 7.5 last week)
Head circ- 35.5cm

She is growing well and slowly adjusting to life outside the womb. Jacob has become very loving towards her and will run to wherever she is when she cries. Randy and I are still zombies because of our lack of sleep, but we wouldn't trade it for anything!
My mom has been down here with us this week and will be here next week too. It's been fun seeing Jacob get to know his grandma Rojas, and it's been nice being able to take naps during the day while she watches the baby and Jacob naps.

The Wait is Over.....

This is going to be short and sweet (It's too early in the morning for fancy writing:) - Baby Anna was born this morning at 1:23am! She weighs in at 7lbs 7oz and is 20 1/2 inches long. Our day started pretty early on Thursday morning and ended really early Friday morning. She is beautiful like her mom and both baby and mom are happy and healthy. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers. Here are a few pictures.

Super Quick Update...

We had our Doctor's appt today and I am now dilated to a 4! The Doctor wants to see me again on monday instead of wednesday to check on my swelling (aka monster foot and swollen hands now) He said there's a 70% chance I'll have the baby before monday...but then again, last week he said there was a 50% chance I would have her before today. So I guess we wait...wish me luck! :)

It's not every day... get a round of applause when you clean! I was remembering how cute Jacob was the other day and thought I'd share the story...

We were both in the kitchen on thursday morning. He was playing with his toys and I was loading the dishwasher. I dropped one of the plates and it broke as it hit the ground...Jacob came running in and said "uh-oh what you do?" So as I was cleaning up I was all stressed trying to make sure he wasn't getting near any of the little broken pieces. I don't know if I had a scared or stressed look on my face or what...but he came up to me, gave me a hug and said "oh...Momma..." I thought that was so sweet of him. Then when I was all done cleaning he clapped and said "yay!"

He totally just made my day!
I'm so lucky to have him, and to be able to be a stay at home mom so I can have little cute moments like that with him.
