New tricks aren’t always fun

Let’s see, today was an interesting day. It started with Gio’s new thing which is making himself throw up…tons of fun. It looks like Isa is learning this cool new trend as she threw up shortly after Gio did. The best thing about Gio’s throw up was that it not only got all over him, the chair, the floor and mommy but he made sure that the last of it didn’t come out until I looked directly in his face to say the words, poor baby. Mouth wide open at the poor…and out came more throw up. Right in my mouth, the kid has perfect aim but he wasn’t done. One little sneeze which blew out more from his nose that splashed on my eyebrows and eyelashes. As I swallowed a combination of food, broken down protein formula and some milk all I can do is hold this little man in my arms and reassure him mommy was there and he would be fine. Just another day in the Newcomer home.

Turning 1

First Birthday (1)

I don’t know where to begin…this year has been….WOW. With the fears, tears, joys, extra love, hugs and kisses we’ve gotten through it all. I feel the saying holds true, If God takes you to it, he will get you through it, and that he does! When it seems like all hope is lost and you are more scared than you ever thought possible, he gives you more hope and love. After meeting and marrying my husband I never thought I could love anymore but each day I see his smile and look into the eyes of our babies, and love just grows stronger and you feel it more. I can’t explain it but it hugs my body, keeps me warm and lifts my soul. I never knew what love, true love, pure love, unconditional love was until my family. I love our family. You complete me. Happy 1st birthday, Giovanni and Isannah Mia! You make us proud.

Feelings of motherhood

Peaked in the nursery this evening and although I couldn’t see a thing I felt so much love and warmth. In the darkness I could see the curves of their face, the shape of their eyes and I could hear the laughter which fills the room. It made me giggle out loud a little and then my hand immediately slammed into my face to cover my mouth in fear of waking my blessings. Awe, the joys of motherhood. Now off to bed I go to lie in the arms of the man I love. Life…
