Where I Am From

I am from a two story house in the suburbs.  From Texas where football reigns and even the nights are humid. I am from Mary and Hector and an older brother.  From cousins that are as numerous as the stars in the sky. I am from Saturday morning pancakes and sausage and Sunday night pot […]

Oh my sweet little boy, Snax.  How can another year have passed? My boy with the twinkle in his eye, the mischievous one who is all boy.  Where did five go? It passed too fast, and it kills me.  But kid, what a year.  Truly, it was a fantastic year for you.  I’ve been asking you […]

Goose~ how did it happen?  Ten years in the blink of an eye. TEN YEARS!! I remember your birth like it was yesterday.  Eating out at Pappadeaux, coming home and playing BopIt with Squirt, then my water breaking.  I had a million thoughts racing through my mind at that point.  I didn’t rush, I think […]

My Sweet Baby Hulk, you’re seven now.  I can’t even believe that we’re here.  But we are, another year has come and gone.  And what a great year it was for you. I start with a simple apology of never posting last year’s birthday letter.  It’s mostly done, except for the pictures,  yet never published. […]

It’s my birthday!  Yay me!  Even at the age of 43, I love my birthday.  No complaining from me about getting older, no “it’s not a big deal” coming out of my mouth. It’s my day, ALL MINE.  And I want to be pampered and loved on and told just how special I am. Everyone […]

Goose, I can’t believe you are NINE.  NINE!!!   Since the moment you were born I have wanted to stop time and just hold on.  Hold on to holding you for the very first time, hold on to those days when we took several naps together.  Hold on to each new phase~ because with every […]

On Turning 5

Snax, Tonight I attempted to put a four year old to sleep.  It’s 10:44 pm, and you’re still wide awake.  I have left your room several times saying, “Good night 4 year old, next time I see you, you will be 5.”  That just doesn’t seem to be your plan tonight.  And that says a […]

A Birthday Celebration

Today my dad turns 70. 70!!! I can’t believe he’s 70.  My grandmother is supposed to be 70, not my dad.  But 70 he is.  And thankfully, he’s a young 70.  I expect to celebrate a lot more birthdays. But since 70 seems like such a big number, we decided to honor him last weekend. […]

Happy Birthday, Chelsea!  What a year!  You graduated, moved home and got a job.  We’re so proud of all of you’ve accomplished this last year.  I know this next year will bring you lots of joy.  We’re so glad you’re back in Houston.  I love watching all the kids with you!  They really love having […]

Sweet girl, I started this post the night before you turned 2.  It has taken me far too long to finish.  It’s partly that we’re just living and partly that I’m a bit sad at you growing up.  Here’s goes… Tonight was the last time I will hold my own 1 year old in my […]
