Our First Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving holds a special place in my heart. I don't know why in the past but this year I am thankful to have Mya. Last year the day before Thanksgiving is when we found out we were expecting so we were very thankful.

Like I said I love Thanksgiving. I having all my family around.Today Mya met her Uncle Josh.

Now I love that I have Mya. But there is always going to be someone missing now. I am still working on getting past family events not feeling pity for myself. I keep telling myself it takes time but that may just be my new excuse.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Is This An Anniversary?

One year ago today Eddie and I found out we were expecting. I remember it like it was yesterday. I could not sleep. I woke up at 5am and the night before we said I would test in the morning. So I figured why not. I went into the bathroom took the test and finished my business. When I looked back at the test there it was "Pregnant"

I woke Eddie up to show him. We just sat on our bed a hugged each other. I don't even think we said much. I fell back asleep and got back up at 7am. I had physical therapy at 7:30 and an appointment to get my flu shot at 8:45.

At my appointment I told our doctor I think I am pregnant. So we did another test to confirm. He told me it is a very faint line, but a line is a line.

Knowing that every pregnancy memory I have should have been documented I wish I would have been one of those people to take a picture of the test. I am not sure if I should happy or sad or even anything today. I know that one year ago today was one of the top 10 moments in my life. So I think I will leave it at that.

Mya's Baptism

Today was Mya's baptism. We were blessed to have our family there with us. Mya has had a cold for over 2 weeks now and she seemed to have a good day. We started out the morning
wondering how much of family would be able to join us with the whole circle of fires around us. My parents had to go another route as the 14 freeway was closed and parts of the 210 freeway were closed as well.
We got a call that some of the Serrano's would not be able to come as Aunt Vivi and Uncle Pete's house might be evacuated.
Once Molly got here we dressed Mya in her dress. I ended up cutting up a onesie for under her dress she she would have some protection.
When we got to the church I had asked the priest if he could please say a prayer for Sophia and he said he would and ended up forgetting.
It was a nice ceremony and Mya was good. She ate and fell asleep halfway through. She was upset when we woke her to actually be baptized. But she got over it.
Sophia was in my thoughts today. I wished they were both baptized. I wanted to have Sophia baptized at the hospital but since we did not get to see her that did not happen. I really wonder why they did not let us see her.

It Is Finally Here.

I got home from work tonight and checked the mail. Mya's new birth certificate is here.

I am still very upset with the way it looks. It is all stamped up and it says the wrong thing on the top page. Then you turn it over and it tells you what the corrections are. I hate that it is like this and I am still very upset at who ever messed up at Huntington. How could they do this to anyone?

Well all I know is there is nothing I can do about it now. Maybe one day I will find the right person in Sacramento to make sure this does not happen to anyone else. Or even the right person to get me a new certificate rather than an amendment.
