My Big Boy…

Diego deserves a post of his own. He got a haircut yesterday. Doesn’t he look like a big boy?

44 Months




Is no more. Diego hasn’t really napped for at least a few weeks. He does sleep if he is in the truck and we are driving somewhere but at home, he doesn’t. When I mention naptime, he’ll say he doesn’t like to nap anymore. I don’t even push it. I don’t want any tears so unless he needs one, no more.

Diego is growing up. *sigh* But it is a good thing. 🙂

School Time…

Diego has been officially signed up for Pre-school/Pre-Kindergarden for Fall ’09. I can’t believe he is old enough for this. Where has my baby gone??? The good thing is that we can go school supply shopping. I loved doing that when I was a kid and I am sure Diego will too.

Eeeeek! So excited!!!

Picture Time…

We took Mia to get her 3 month pictures taken today. My plan was just pictures of Mia since Diego has is own 3 month pictures. Of course, when Diego found out he wanted pictures too. :p

Well, it is only fair since we did not get 3 year portraits for him so now we have 3 1/2 year portraits of him.

We had to really work to get Mia to smile. Granted, it was 6:30 pm and we had to wake her up once we got there. Since we were late, the lady (Yolanda) told us we only had 10 minutes for the session. Mia had two clothing changes so I hoped we could do it quickly. So while Mia was getting her pictures take, I got Diego dressed since I had no time change him at home. The pictures came out so cute. I really do have cute kids which I don’t know how that is possible. 🙂 But I can’t wait to get the pictures.

Happy 3rd Birthday…

To my little man, Diego, who at 12:54 am made his grand appearance in this world. I can’t believe how three years have gone by so quickly. I will never forget the “angel kisses” on your nose and the spit bubbles that had formed on your lips when I first saw you. The way you looked at us wondering who the heck we were. It has been an interesting ride and it’s a ride I don’t want to get off. I hope this day will be a good one for you.

Hugs and Kisses, Mama

Good Day…

Wow! I don’t think I have spent a whole day with Diego in a long time. We dropped Eric off at the airport this morning at around 7:30ish. Thankfully, he was able to check his luggage and make his flight. So we came back home since nothing is really open at 8 am. So far so good.

We got home, Diego watched Blue and Mickey Mouse. I stacked books that seemed to entertained him. But by the time is was 11, Diego threw his first and only tantrum of the day. So I did what I had to do, it was time for a nap.

He got up at 12:30. We ate lunch and off to Babies R Us to get some shopping done. Then we went to Factory Card Outlet to see if I could find any birthday accessories. Nada. While we were there, he saw a plastic bat and ball. So the entire time we were there, he just carried it. So it was time to leave, I had to tell him he had to leave the toy. At first, he did not want to but then after telling him that he has lots of bats and balls at home, he let go. No tantrum thrown at all. He even walked to the place where the bat went. So proud!

I noticed that there was a drive thru Starbuck so we drove up and order a Chai and a chocolate chip cookie for a special treat for Diego. He was really, really good at the stores. I gave him a piece of cookie and off we went. So I was driving on 290 going home, when Diego requests more cookie. I told him I couldn’t because I was driving. So he proceeds to tell me to stop the car so I can give him more cookie! I am in the middle of the expressway. 😆 Told him once we got home, I would give him more cookie. That made him happy and was quiet the rest of the ride home.

We got home, ate cookie, played, ate dinner, watched tv, played more and colored. Then it was time for night, night and he went right to sleep.

I think it was a good day, don’t ya agree?

Midnight Mystery…

For the last few weeks, Diego has been mysteriously showing up in our bed. We have no clue what time he gets there. That kid is stealthy in getting into our bed. Either that or I am just a really, really hard sleeper. 😛

He used to announce his arrival by saying “Good Morning Mama!!” That would wake me up and I would just take him back to his bed. But now, he just climbs in.

So last night, at around midnight, I felt something heavy on me. Usually it is Nala (our cat) who likes to sleep right next to me or in between my legs but this time I woke up and found Diego climbing in. I don’t think so and walked him back to bed.

Then at around 3 am, I felt the heaviness again. Sure enough, it was Diego again. I walked him back to his bed again.

Then when we woke up this morning around 7 ish, he was all snuggled next to me. I have no clue what time he showed up this time. 😆

He is getting good. At least now we know what time he has been arriving and now I can be on the look out. He must sleep in his own bed for all our sakes.

So Cool…

I just read the Fleet Feet Sport’s newsletter today. They are giving the run down on the races they are sponsoring this year. Guess who’s picture made it in there??? Diego’s!!! He has a great smile as he is running towards the finish line. Here is the picture:

He is the one at the bottom dressed as a giraffe. Just in case you confuse him as the Elvis fellow. 😉

This is the picture that I keep meaning to order so I better do it soon.
