but it's a funny story. While I was pregnant with Cruz, I would wake up most mornings very tired and not having any interest in making breakfast. Oh, I would also be craving a Mc Donald's ice coffee. So lily and I would pile into the car in our PJ's and head to the nearest Mc Donald's drive thru. Every morning the guy in the window would say "Good Morning" and hand me my ice coffee and a Sausage Mcmuffin (probably why I gained 40 pounds with Cruz). Lily would eat the egg and I would eat the rest. One morning I pulled up to the window and heard the usual "Good Morning" but then all of a sudden from the back seat comes a cute little "Good Morning" from a sleepy and hungry little Lily. For awhile after every time we pulled up to a window, no matter what time of day it was she would say "Good Morning". So the moral of my story is.......Mc Donald's is not only fast and convenient but also educational.

I remember Lily smiling (at me not just when she tooted) for the first time when she was about 3 weeks old. So when Cruz turned 3 weeks, then 4 and then 5 and had not yet cracked a smile I started to get a little worried. So then finally at 7 weeks old he decides to crack a little half smile and actually it still wasn't at me it was for Lily. I like to think that he is to busy contemplating the world around him to be all smiles just yet. I also learned my first mistake and that is not to compare my children and there milestones. They are two very different little beings.

Just a quick note. Most of my blogs for the time being will be fairly short and to the point. I'm having a hard time finding the time to write them. I'm lucky if Cruz naps while Lily does and after we put her to bed around 8 o'clock I'm beat and afraid my entries may not make much sense. This is something I really want to do though and will do my best to keep up.

Today I started our family blog. I was inspired to do so by my fabulous friend Ashley. I can only hope that I create something as beautiful as she has.
My little family has just blossomed into four. There is myself Kristen (or Ten as my husband likes to call me) my husband Jorge, our gorgeous 2 year old Lily and our little moose Cruz who is 6 weeks.
