New computer...New life

We are officially connected again.  To be honest, I didn't miss it that much...I'm not one to spend too much time online.  I "surf" the web like I shop...I know what I need to do, find, buy...and I get in, get it, and get out.  When I find myself spending too much time in front of the computer, I'm actually aware of an uncomfortable, antsy anxiety spreading through my brain and nervous system and I have to stop.  Same thing happens at the mall....ugh!  If I'm there too long or there without specific purpose, I get this feeling like I have to leave NOW...Weird?  Probably...  Anyway, there's no way to catch you up today on the last three to four weeks but thought I shouldn't procrastinate any more.  Here's some shots from the recent weeks...we've both grown so much.

 No cuter monkey around...that is for sure!!

Xavi loves basketball now...he can say it almost perfectly and loves to play on both the regulation hoop and the toddler size one in our backyard.

Mario has been home with us as often as he can during his training/deployment work up.  We miss him a lot but love the time we have together.

Beach day...let's go play!  

I even got to get on the water in a tandem wave ski with "uncle Gene".... a very nice guy we often see at San Onofre.  I got to ride 3 decent, albeit small waves and get a little bit wet.  Loved it!  

Like I said, we are both growing :)
Much more to come...loving life and happy to be living it!

No computer yet...coming soon!!

I just figured out that I could do a quick post using my phone...yah, I know, a bit slow here. Technologically challenged...anyways...After all that talk about keeping up with my posts? It's been a bit hard to do so without a computer but one is on its way and so Lord willing that I can figure it out (hee hee)- we'll be back on line. Honestly it's been a bit of a nice vacation from technology but it's time I re-joined this decade. We've settled into a nice routine. I'm starting to get used to being "just" a mom although I'm just starting to stop checking my phone and email compulsively like I did while working. I'm happy and having a ball with my boy. Not quite convinced yet that I'm not just on a vacation...except that Mario has been gone since my last work day and I'm well aware of the important responsibility on my shoulders to hold down the home front with strength and confidence. The timing couldn't have worked better if we'd tried. I'm so thankful that sometimes things don't work out the way we want them to. I'm still learning and adjusting ...but very happy being MOM. I dislike typing so much on my phone so I'll go for now. We'll catch up with our last few weeks ASAP. We had a visit from Vince, xavi's cousin from TX (just a week apart!), a few beach days with Papa, a happy mothers day, good midwife check ups (halfway there and growing fast), fun times at the park, and special quiet moments (and more not so quiet ones :)) lots of love....
