Life Lately...

Life has slowed down a little with being out of school, but somehow we have managed to stay busy. I graduated in May with my bachelor's in Child Development and for a graduation trip we went to Cabo San Lucas with friends. We've had a fun summer and we are looking forward to a relaxing Labor Day up at our family cabin. Enjoy the pics! 

Snorkeling with a motor so you don't have to swim, it just takes you around.
 I love this guy and his smile
 Time for a nap in the sun, Land's End rock where the Sea of Cortez ends and the Pacific Ocean begins.

 Don't let the smile fool you, I was scared.
It was all worth it for the views we got. 

 Here is our resort- Hola Grand Faro. It was fabulous with five pools and endless Pina Coloda's.

Dear Baby...

Here is a very special letter I wrote last year to my baby boy, just as I found out I was pregnant. I found it as I was going through some things today. I will cherish this forever. My Heavenly Father really has blessed me in my earthly journey. I may not have known the outcome of our little boy at the beginning of my pregnancy, but I am so glad that even then I had a strong testimony of eternal families.

Dear Baby-

This week has been an emotional one. I found out on Friday, Jan. 21, 2011 that I was pregnant. I was late and I had been so tired that I decided to take a pregnancy test after coming home early from work. The test came out positive and just to make sure we went to Kaiser to have them do a test and that one came out positive too! I am overwhelmed with so many emotions, mostly scared because of my health issues. I want you to be healthy! I went to the doctor and found out I am 5 weeks and 5 days along. I want the best for you. I want you to know that I love you already and I am worried I won't be a good mom. I also want you to know that you are a miracle from our Heavenly Father. He has blessed us with you and I have faith that He will watch over us. I have a testimony of faith and prayer and I know that my Redeemer lives. He is comforting me every step of the way during this pregnancy and I am so excited to tell you that our family is eternal. We will be forever, so no matter what happens along the way we will be together forever someday. I love you and I will worry about your well being for every minute for the next nine months. I love you little bubble. See you soon, your mom.
