First Communion

Here's Chone before walking into the church
Recieving communion for the first time.
Chone, the priest, and Tina (Tia + Nina)
Our family with the priest.
Chone next to her banner that she (I) made. (She designed it!)
It was a great day and we celebrated with family and friends at home afterwards. Then Chone went with her Dad to have a BIG party at her Grandma's house. They had a DJ, a three tier cake, and she got $202 cash in gifts! She hasn't even brought all her gifts home yet.

A Tooth!

I can't believe I forgot to post that Felix finally got a tooth. I think it was the 14th that I noticed that he finally had cut a tooth. It's the bottom middle on the left. It has been growing out slowly, but you can't really see it yet. My little boy got a haircut and a tooth. He's not a baby anymore:( He even says "Mama" when he cries and claps. They are growing so fast! He is almost crawling. He even tries to climb up on things. I see a lot of bumps and bruises in the future.

He only likes to take 15-20 minute naps about twice a day. He fights sleep and when he finally can't stay awake any longer he falls asleep anywhere. Here's some more pictures of what Felix has been up to...

Crawling, but only over each other

The babies are almost crawling. They can do the army crawl, roll, and Felix gets up on his hands and knees. The other day we found him going over Lili to get a toy he wanted.
We are using a mat my Mom & Dad bought for Chone for the babies to play on. It has already saved Felix from hitting his head on the hardwood floor a few times. They like looking at the Disney Princesses. It's funny when they try to pick up something in the pictures.

We ended up celebrating Easter at my Tia/Nina Grace's house. It was good to see everyone, even though we were all in pain over Roman passing away. We celebrated his birthday with cake and presents. I miss him so much already.
Oh yeah! Pepe spiked Felix' hair with gel. He looked so cute. Now he looks more like Pepe than Gaby Jr.


This is Felix's hair out of control!
I was sick of hearing how cute my twin girls were, and his hair was starting to get into his eyes, so I let Luis cut Felix's hair on Easter morning.

He wasn't scared of the machine or anything. I held him and Luis shaved all his beautiful hair off. I thought it would be darker, but it ended up looking brown.

We thought he looked like my cousin's son, Matthew. It took me about a week to get used to seeing him with his haircut.

In Loving Memory

April 7, Saturday morning my little cousin Roman passed away. It was the day before his 20th birthday. He had muscular dystrophy. Since that morning when I got the phone call, I have just felt different. It's as if a piece of my heart is broken. I know that our family will never be the same. We have never had a death in our big family until now. We all knew it was something that would eventually happen, but I don't think anyone ever could imagine the day it would. It has been hard, especially the rosary and funeral, but at the same time I am glad he is with God and is no longer in pain. I am so thankful that Roman was with us for so long. I watched him grow from a baby to a man. I had gone with the kids to visit him a week before he passed away. Roman loved babies! I remember when Chone was a baby he would always hold her and kiss her. I knew he would want to see the twins, so we stopped by. I'm so glad we went to see him that day and see his smile as he kissed the twins and took pictures with them. Roman will always be a part of our family and never be forgotten. It makes me feel good to know my babies have our angel Roman watching over them. Rest in peace Roman. I love you and you will always be in my heart!

We Got Married!!

We got married in a small cubicle at the courthouse.

Here is a picture of my family and parents. My parents were our witnesses.

Here is a picture of the whole family. It used to be just 5 of us! Wow, we are growing!
Thank you for everyone who came to the ceremony: Mom & Dad, Lisa, Joey, Phi, Elaine, my kids (not that they had a choice), T Angie, T Ruth, T Mary, and my new cousin in law Susy.
Thank you for everyone who came and had cake with us that night. It made it special for us to have the family over to celebrate.
