HARLEY has Arrived!

It had been a very busy week full of great things! Isaac and Isabella were married Tuesday and their wedding was just beau- tiful!!! Israel's family had a bunch of great relatives in town that we got to spend time with and We got to party at Is and Is's reception on Friday night! We have just been livin' it up! ...This may have been the coolest weekend of my life... (tied with the one when I married Israel!) Israel and I were so happy and surprised when Harley decided to come early! Israel and I spent a few hours after Isaac's reception finishing some midterms, spending time with the Ortegas and eating Menudo. FUN! We got home and I told Israel that I thought my water broke... we thought about it a bit and decided to see how I was feeling after a bit of sleep. Well Saturday morning we woke up and I thought we really should go into the hospital... so we packed up and went to the hospital. They admitted me and the doctor started me on some inducing drugs. I began having contractions real close together. When they were happening about every minute the baby's heart rate was dropping a lot with each one, the nurses and doctors started worrying that something was wrong and they had us sign permission forms to have the baby cesarean. The doctor decided to give us a chance to have him naturally, but if after a certain amount of time it wasn't happening ...then c-section was the way... Luckily it went well, He was born naturally, and when Harley came his umbilical cord was around his neck. They got it off and he was fine! He is so small and sweet! He was born at 10:21 am and weighed 7lbs 8oz he was 21 inches long. He is just so CUTE!!!! he looks so much like Israel it's crazy! We spent a couple days in the hospital and we got home today with our perfect baby boy! It's fun to have him and get to just hold him! I love watching Israel and him together! Israel is a proud papa! I am so grateful for Harley, We are so happy to have him!

Tuesday, Saturday, Happy Days!

So I had a really great week in February! I turned 27 on Tuesday, My future sister in law came in from Brazil, and We had a baby Shower/Bar-B-Q on Saturday. Israel is SO wonderful and just spoiled me rotten on my Birthday!!! He woke me up and gave me a new little camera.... I so wanted one of those! He took me to breakfast at one of my favorite places... The Waffle House. Israel first took me to the waffle house... we have many times returned and I am so used to the place now that I no longer ask for a stack of pancakes! After that he took me shopping and got me a beautiful Purse and Some sun glasses... Love them! My parents were wonderful and took us all out to my favorite Viet- namese restaurant ... YUMMY! Saturday was also a very eventful day! IT rained a bit... so pretty! We went to the airport around noon to meet Isabella... Isaac's fiance. She is so sweet and Isaac just looked happy and relieved that she is finally here!!! We later had so much fun seeing all of our great friends and family at our Shower Bar-B-Q. It was so nice of everyone to come and celebrate our upcoming baby!!! YA... intense and fun week. I also had lunch with some of my great friends... we went to get Thrifty Ice cream together afterwards and spent lots of time just talking. I love these girls!!!... So February was SO MUCH FUN!!!
