Safa's lovely face!

Last Monday was a very difficult day, early evening that day I wrote this post with all the intentions of sharing with you this incident, yet as I was about to post it, I realized that I needed to consult first with Safa's family and see what was their take in me sharing this with all of you, luckily they want to spread the word and create as much awareness as possible in the hope to avoid this happening to others.

Baby Mejia!

Our second bundle of joy is almost here, we just found out last Wednesday that we will be blest with another baby girl, we are thrilled with excitement that our little Kira will soon have a sister to play with.

Reality check... I think the fact that we did not know the sex of our baby had led us to believe that we still had a long time to go.

The House.

This post was inspired by the title of an article of my online friend Linsay "A House is Not a Home" at "Lindsay Blogs". Please feel free to stop by and take a look at it. She is awesome! Thank you Linsay for the inspiration.

For does of you wondering if Baby decided to come early, the answer is No. baby is still safe and sound in my belly, currently at 29 weeks and counting, so far the plans are still for September.

This has more to do with toddles and their curious little hands.

Yesterday we experienced our first (hopefully last, wishful thinking) unexpected trip to the ER of Edward Hospital in Naperville IL.

Reading is fun!

Reading at a very early age to your child has so many good and natural effects on them, many beyond our comprehension.  But in my experience I do truly believe that it goes as far as starting to read to them as they grow inside our bellies.

As I was pregnant with my first baby (Kira), I read a lot, sometimes it would be maternity or parenting books and sometimes I would find myself reading children’s book (just because I like to read each book before I give it to a child).
