Nadia's second Christmas was wonderful. She was so excited to open up her presents and kept saying " huuuu cuuuul " for " oh cool " lool .
We spent Christmas eve at their Grandparents house.
Justin was really excited over his presents but was very disappointed when he discovered that the Nintento Dsi was not among his presents. :p In some of the Pictures u can tell how Sad he was and Tommy shot a picture where i was explaining to him that he might get is Nintendo Dsi from Santa on Christmas Day. All he said was.. " i am afraid i am not going to get it, because i was kind of bad in school" loool He was the happiest Boy in the morning. For some reason i can not write comments under the Pictures that i posted. I will have to fix this soon.But until then use ur imagination... fir everyone that knows Justin & Nadia..this will be easy to do :)
I felt very blessed this Christmas to have my little Family around me.
Happy Birthday Jesus :)

Halloween 2011 & Justin's Birthday
I am such a slacker !! But to my defense i haven't had the time to actually sit down for a couple of hours and update my Blog. I did try to sit down a few times and do so, but my Kids would come and want to Eat, Play or just be held.
I also have been trying not to not stay home allot. I decided to get back in Shape after my Aunt called me ( who lives overseas)she saw Nadia's Baptism Photos and asked me if i was Pregnant again....worst thing u can ask a woman after she had a Baby.
Since then, which was in May, i have been trying to get back in shape :) Been counting calories, working out..Zumba is my Favorite work out. I have lost 30 Pounds so far. Which is all my Pregnancy weight. But i thought i keep going and try to look like i looked before i had Justin...so i have about 10-15 more Pounds to go.
Halloween was fun. We were invited at a friends house and went Trick or Treating in her Neighborhood which was the first time for us ..we usually go Trunk or Treating or to the Mall.
Justin turned 6 and we celebrated at Monkey Joe's. He had so much fun, all of his friends were there and as always she got super spoiled from everyone :)
He received some Birthday money and wanted to buy him a Dinosaur that he had seen a month before.The Dinosaur wasn't very expensive and when i had told him that he had a few bucks left he responded " I have everything i need..i want to get Nadia something now" My heart just melted when he picked her out a Blue Smurffet ( how ironic is that by the way?lol ) .. he is the sweetest Big brother to Nadia. I am a such a Lucky Mommy!
Thanks for stopping by :))

Heart Catheterization ( Postet wayyy to late!! So Sorry)
I had finished writing the post the day of the Heart Cath.... but i somehow managed to deleted all ,i rewrote it and just realized i never posted it!! OOppss
Nadia's Heart cath went really well... She was in the best mood that morning..she was singing the Patty Cake song on the car ride there, clapping her hands while singing " Patty Pat" over and over... but u can't really get sick of it ...it sounds so beautiful coming out of her mouth..
They gave Nadia some "Happy" drugs before taking her to the OR.... she started to sing again
"Daddy..dadddyyy..daaaaaa" then she wanted to give out hugs and asked for her Doll that she now calls "Baby"...we couldn't help but laugh at our little "drunk" girl... it was time to take her, of course i couldn't help it anymore and stared to tear up
The Drugs defiantly helped because she waved at us and said "bye bye" with a smile on her face.
I love love love the Vandy staff..they are so nice and so thorough that, by the time they took Nadia back, we had no questions or doubt in the ability's.
We had/have complete trust in them. I think i really appreciate this the most about the Hospital.
About a couple hours later Dr.Doyle came and talked to us with a smile on his face.
He was more then pleased about her Heart & Lung functions. The only thing that he mentioned was that she had a collateral artery that they might have to block off either at the Fontan surgery or after... but according to him no big deal.
We got to see her shortly after... she was pretty much sleeping the wohle time.
A week and a half ago i had weened her off her pacifier, but i thought i bring them with me just in case ......soo soo soo glad i did!
Every time she woke up and started to cry i gave her the Paci and everything was good again.
Her eyes where a little puffy but that was about it.
She slept so long that she stayed up allllll night wanting to play ;)
We were discharged at 8 am and got to go Home... Life is good
I am incredibly lucky to have such a sweet, sunny & strong little Girl
A day after the cath
Justin celebrated his Birthday early at school :)
Her eyes were a little puffy...it looks like she had her eyes closed in every picture
right before they took her
