Such a happy little girl!
Her cousin, Mateo, JUST dumped water on her...can you tell she didn't like it? Ha!
The one I would do anything for...I love her so much
This past weekend was amazing! Some of Leo's family came and stayed with us...some of which was part of a grand scheme to surprise me...(which they did--more on that later).
We went out to a nice dinner, hung around together, went to the park and let the kids swim in the backyard. It was fun, relaxing and I didn't feel left out of anything (which is really nice--I feel left out of so much at this stage of my pregnancy...).
On Saturday Leo rushed me out of the house. We went and saw The Hangover...hilarious! Seriously one of the funniest movies that I've seen in a looong time! I was laughing so hard I started having strong contractions--haha!
It was our first date since Isabella was born. Almost 2 years...wow. We were definitely in need of a date--we even sat in the back row! But only because all of the other good seats were taken...seriously!
After the movie Leo told me his sister had called him (she was at home with Bella and everyone else) and that Isabella was crying and missing us. It broke my heart! So we rushed home where I saw a lot of unfamiliar cars in our driveway...and when I asked Leo what was going on all he told me was that it was all for me...from the people who love me.
Of course I started crying! Crazy pregnant hormones. But they were tears of happiness. I walked in and was greeted with pink and green baby decorations, family members, co-workers of Leo's and lots of hugs. Isabella came running out wearing her Big Sister t-shirt and gave me a huge hug. It was amazing. I think sometimes I just feel so alone down here and to see that this was done for me...I was floored. We had such a nice time and I can't believe that this was all done for me.
Leo's daughter, Ashley, is staying with us until after Madelyn is born. She is such a sweetheart (almost 12 years old! Wow!) and we absolutely adore her. Isabella loves having Ashley around and it melts my heart to see how Isabella looks up to her. I'm really hoping to get some cute sister pictures taken before Madelyn arrives...and after she arrives!
