Garibay Soup: My Babies

My Babies

I wish she'd slow down. She's such a girl! All of us girls are always so anxious to just grow up and unfortunately Ella's already started. She's not even 8 months old yet and she's already tried to take off walking. Poor thing fell right on her face. She's been pulling herself up since about a week after turning 7 months old. Today she was standing in the kitchen holding onto a chair and she was slowly pushing it while taking steps with it.

She's obsessed with food. Sometimes I have to hide to eat otherwise she will throw a screaming fit. She wants whatever I'm eating. We went out to dinner with Gino's friend on Saturday night and I kid you not she had her mouth open for the majority of dinner. Like a little baby robin. Tonight I was putting on chap stick and her mouth flies wide open. So I go to put some on her lips and the fit gets even worse - she wanted to eat it.

She's almost 8 months. How in the world did it fly by that quickly? In 4 months we'll be celebrating her 1st birthday. I give it 2 months and she'll be walking - probably running. What happened to my newborn baby? The really little picture of her is her at 3 days old. Even then she was looking like a little Diva ready for what the world had to give her. Now look at her. Already wearing a bikini. I love looking at pictures of her. I love looking at her. Sometimes I'm just completely in awe that I have a baby girl. A beautiful baby girl! She's been waking up at like 4:30am and standing up in the middle of Gino and me trying to pick our noses off of our faces. I swear it drives me crazy, but the minute I open up my eyes and see her my heart just melts. There's something about her sweet little face that just gets me every time. This time around I'm really trying to have more patience and really treasure every moment with Ella. With Jayden things happened so fast and I wish I would've known that it works like that.

I swear I have no idea where all the years w/him have gone. He's going to be 7. 7 years old. I almost can't even fathom the idea. I found some pictures from when he was a baby... such a huge change. His curls are gone. He actually is full of words, while for the first 3 years he didn't have any. His smile is still as beautiful. His heart is still as sweet. His love for his parents is still as strong. At the end of the day when he hugs me and tells me how much he loves me I know we did good with him. I look at both of their pictures I know I'm biased, but they are some beautiful babies! Their smiles could turn the most saddest frowns upside down. Their tears can break the most happiest heart within seconds. I love my kids. I love that God trusted me with 2 of his most precious children. I love that I have 2 beautiful beings that rely on me. They rely on me for life. They rely on me for love. They rely on me for guidance. They rely on me for hope. I rely on them for life, for love, for guidance and especially for hope. Kids make life so worth it.
