Why hello there, world!

So my last post was back when it was just J and I at home. My how time has flown and things have changed! There are now 4 of us in the house, J and myself, along with our boys Truck and Coquito. (No, those are not their names. Just giving them some privacy on the internet.) Truck is now 3 (!) and he amazes me on a daily basis. He is such a loving little boy and I absolutely adore his sincerity. He enjoys all things boy (dirt, trucks, playing) and he also enjoys doing art with me. That makes my heart so happy! As days go by I will probably share some of the antics of his life. I just never know what the kid is going to say.

Coquito is our youngest member, he just turned 1 this past week. I gave him the nickname Coquito because it means little frog (roughly) in Spanish. I have always liked frogs, and after my mom passed away, if I was having a bad day, a frog would show up. So I have a connection with them. Then, when I was expecting C, it was very touch and go, not knowing from week to week if we would hear a heartbeat at the next appointment or if we would have to say goodbye before saying hello. I learned I needed to FROG-Fully Rely on God with the situation. Little man arrived and he has been fighting to prove that he was worth it. I am so glad I am able to live in a country that allows me to have faith and believe in a God to give my concerns and cares for. We are slowly working on how to sit independently and hopefully we'll be able to find a way to eat food soon. We knew that having Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) would mean going slowly, but some days, I just forget. I see kids that are younger than him doing the "typical" things kids his age should be doing. It makes me sad. I'll admit it. But, I also know that it will be that much more exciting when he does reach that milestone, because I know how hard he has worked to achieve it. Again, I need to FROG, and not on my own self or knowledge.

Well, I just thought I'd come back with an update and, hopefully, I'll be able to post more soon. I have been receiving some excellent products to review (at a discounted price, in exchange for an honest, unbiased review), and I am looking forward to sharing what they are. You never know what I might have received that might just interest you!
