Just A Minute in...December

Just A Minute in...December

Watching... Hope Floats on Netflix. I'm a sucker for romantic movies and I love this one.
Planning... Our weekend holiday adventures, which includes visiting Santa at the ABC Carpet Store and sipping some hot chocolate at Belvedere Castle in Central Park while caroling the night away :)
Creating... Christmas cards, a Christmas banner, ornaments  and using lots of glitter.


Wanting... The days to go by slower, I really don't want this holiday season to be over.  
Dreaming... About adding a new member to our little family. Two nights ago Humbe and I were talking and we have decided that it is finally time to start trying to have another baby! I haven't stopped smiling since :)
Girl crushing... Drew Barrymore, she has come so far. Not to mention that I think that she is beautiful. I love her in Riding In Cars With Boys - this movie makes me cry and laugh.
 Loving... The fact that 2012 is going to be big in so many beautiful ways, not only am I going to get to meet and hug some beautiful blog friends, but I am also hoping to rejoice in some very happy news.
Adoring... This holiday season, wrapping up Christmas presents, eating and baking yummy treats with Miguelito.

 Only 18 days left till Christmas, where does the time go? Between doing Christmas activities with Miguelito, shopping and planning our Christmas celebration time has been going by faster than lightning.

Last week finished off on a very sour note with the news of my Grandmother having Alzheimer's, news that has us very sad. My focus now is being strong for my mom who needs all of the support that she can get right now, one good thing about this weekend was that we got enjoy a family weekend with my 3 aunts, 17 cousins and my Grandmother. It was great to be able to see my abuelita and reassure each other that everything was going to be ok and as a family we would work together to get through this.

Now Sunday night was an entirely different story, I was browsing through some blogs and as I saw pictures of baby bumps I told Humbe."Can you imagine when I'm pregnant again? How big is my belly going to be?" next thing I know Humbe says "Kary, let's have another baby" What? Humbe are you serious?  Humbe: "Kary, yes I believe with all my heart that now is the time", we continued to talk until Humbe fell asleep and I stayed up, looking up at the glow in the dark stars in my ceiling and thinking about what Humbe and me were just talking about. It's been 8 yrs since I had a baby, and this is something that I've desired with all of my heart for a while now, but for certain reasons we just couldn't have another baby. I know now that as long as we have each other,my Miguelito, my family, life and faith everything will be ok! 
I am both happy and nervous about starting over again, but I haven't stopped smiling ear to ear and even crying here and there. Even on Monday as I picked Miguelito up at school and he told me that he was sent to the Principals office for wadding up toilet paper and throwing it up to the bathroom ceiling. I couldn't stop grinning :)
Now to make a visit to the doctors office to get this IUD out and getting an all clear.
Cheers to this holiday season and 2012 being a most wonderful year :)
