Kaitlyn's Room

Kaitlyn's room is finally finished and we love it! We're not sure exactly when she'll start sleeping in it, as opposed to next to our bed, but we're in no rush to move heer so "far" away. :)

While Daddy's away...

the girls will play.

New Videos

Here are a couple of videos taken of Kaitlyn in the last 2 days. The first one, Ron took while she was sleeping in her swing (which she loves to do). She was dreaming then woke up. Too cute!
The second is of her focusing on and following a colorful toy she has:

So Fresh and So Clean

After a quick bath this morning, Kaitlyn was so happy. :)

We're back!

It has been WAY too long since I've posted here and I apologize. Since my last post over 3 months ago our lives have been completely turned upside down, we sleep a lot less and we no longer do things on our own schedule...and we couldn't be happier about it! Most of you that actually visit this blog already know all the details and have been kept up to date, but here is a small recap of the last 3+ months:
  • On December 17, 2008, Ron and I flew back to Miami for my maternity medivac. He worked the first few weeks, which was wonderful because it meant we didn't have to spend as much time apart. We also got to spend the holidays together and with family. It was so nice.
  • On January 3, 2009 Sofia took some really great photos of Ron and I at Virginia Key Beach. We had such a great time and the pics are beautiful.

On January 10, Liane and Sofia hosted a beautiful baby shower for me. It was such a beautiful day!On January 31, we attended Janeysa and Frank's wedding. Everything was gorgeous and we had a great last-night-out before Kaitlyn arrived only 3 days later. Super skinny Janeysa makes me look bigger than I really was. ;)And that all led up to the most amazing and happiest day of my life. On February 3, 2009 at 4:47 p.m., our beautiful daughter Kaitlyn Elizabeth came into the world. Words cannot express just how happy we were to finally meet our precious girl. We have been enjoying every moment of parenthood. She is such a joy and we are so blessed to have her.

On March 23, we unfortuantely, had to fly back to Ecuador. Kaitlyn and I were medically cleared for travel a few days before and Ron flew to Miami to travel back with us. It was very hard to say goodbye to our family and know that we would be so far away. We hope that everyone will come visit and we will also take a few trips back, as well. In the meantime, this blog will be frequently updated (I promise) with pictures, video and stories of our family...no longer just the newlyweds. :)
