I don’t even know why I am crying?!

  … are the words that came out of my almost 4 year old! What? Really? She hasn’t even hit her teens and she is already very emotional! Dear, Lord! Help this momma out!!

Here is the story… we arrive home from my mom’s house, I unbuckle Oceana and carry her in my arms since she was sleeping. At that moment Ray also arrives home so he helps me get Madison out of the car. Raychel unbuckles herself and gets herself out of the car, as usual. I went on into the house to put Oceana down, then Raychel comes storming in crying her little eyes out. Ray then comes in and I ask Ray, “Why is Raychel crying?” he says, “I have no Idea?” Raychel is in our room bawling. Ray and I ask, ” Raychel why are you crying?” she says, “I don’t even know why I am crying?” What? No. she did not just say that?!! were the thoughts going through my head. Ray then says, “Raychel, if you are going to be crying for no reason, please go to your room and cry there.” Raychel takes off running to her room and closes the door and cries in her room. Ray and I just let her cry it out. I start the girls bath and then Ray and I go into Raychel’s room and she kinda stops crying, I then say, “Raychel your baths ready!” she gets all excited and kinda giggles and gives me a big hug, and hops right into the bath. The End!

Oh, Lord! They haven’t even hit their teens and they’re already acting like this! All I know is that Ray and I will be doing A LOT of praying, because we sure are going to need the big mans help!

Raychel’s First Day of Pre-School!

  Raychel’s first day of pre-school was yesterday and It was a day full of emotions for me. My little baby is getting so big and is extremely smart!

Raychel woke up and right when she did she was excited to start school. I got her and her sister dressed, we had a small breakfast, I got all her stuff, and we were off to her first day of school! oh! and the first thing she said when she woke up and on the way to school was, ” Mommy where is daddy? He is not coming to take me to pre-school?” awe… how these girl love their daddy! I said, ” No, baby. He is working, but that’s why mommy is taking all these pictures of you so after school we can show daddy, ok!” She says, ” Yeah! OK, mommy! Take a picture of me so daddy can see!” awwww I love it!!! I pray that they always, always feel this way towards their daddy!! It melts my heart!! I felt like more of a mom taking my little one to school!! lol!! I cant believe that this time has come!!! I still feel like I just had her!!This is such a fun new season of our lives, and I thank God for this time! It feels so weird just having little OC with me and no Raychel, its bitter sweet =).

Raychel, daddy and mommy are so very proud of you! You are such a smart girl!!! God bless you sweetpea!

 Heading to school!! She looks kinda scary in this picture lol!
 Out front of the pre-school
 and there she goes…

Once we picked Raychel up from pre-school, Oceana was so happy to have her play buddy back!

{Raychel’s Quotes}

Last week I was getting ready and out of the blue Raychel comes in and says, “Mommy, Jesus loves me.” I said, “Yes honey He does!” Then she says, ” Jesus can see us, but we can’t see him. Jesus loves daddy, Oceana, Raychel, Mommy, Jacob (her cousin) and Jordan (her best girlfriend).” I said, “Yes He does, He loves everybody.” It was such a blessing to hear her say this, specially, because it was so random. We were not listening to any Christian songs, we were not even talking about Him. I am so Thankful that I know of Jesus Christ and that my children will also know of Him!

{Raychel & Oceana}

Raychel’s quotes…

“Daddy, it’s your turn, I watched T.V. all day. Daddy you watch football?! Can I watch wit (with) you?”
“Oceana dont touch dat (that), dats daddy’s stuff. Oceana listen to Raychel! You get time-out!”
Raychel loves to sing, “Oh no, you never let go through the calm and through the calm” haha I love it, their is no storm in her life just calmness!
When Raychel is eating and is trying to pick up her chicken with her fork and cant, she will say, ” Ugh… I cant get it!” then when she does get it she will say, ” Oh, here we go!”
I am giving the girls a bath and I called Oceana “a little mermaid,” because she was on her belly in the tub -like swimming, and Raychel says, ” Mom Raychel -mermaid, Oceana -fish.” haha.. She cracks me up!
When Oceana is not being nice or not sharing or Raychel herself doesnt want to share she will come to me and say, “Oceana need to-take-a nap!” Oh, Raychel haha! 
Raychel is such a sweet heart, she listens to mommy most of the time. She loves being out and playing with friends and cousins, her favorite dressing is Ranch, she wants chicken nuggets with her ranch, not the other way around. Raychel is such a little mommy to Oceana, when little O.C. falls or gets hurt Raychel will try to cheer her up, and say, “Oh, its OK baby, you OK.” I LOVE IT!

Raychel will also let me know when Oceana is doing something she shouldn’t be doing. 

Raychel likes to pretend to be highlighting mommies hair…

 She was being silly by putting a mint on her check, and then said,” Mommy take a picture!”

Oceana 16 months old
Oceana says lots of words! She says, Mommy, Daddy, Please, Thank you, Agua (water in Spanish), Bye bye, Hi, No, Mine (her favorite), poo poo, ca-ca (haha), and teta (she says teta which is in Spanish, asking for her bottle).
When Oceana has poo poo, she will point to her bottom and say, “Caca, poo poo.”

Before they eat we say a little prayer and at the end she says, “Amen.” awe.. melts my heart!

When Ray leaves to work or just gets up from the table and leaves, she will say, “daddy, Bye byes.”
When Ray tries to steal some food from oceana’s plate, she will point her little finger and wave it while saying, “noo, noo, noo, no, no!” Too cute, I love it!
Oceana loves to have her shoes on, she doesn’t like them off. If her shoes are off she will run to her room and find any shoes, then run back towards me and has me put them on for her, she says, “shhhh” (for shoe).
Lately Oceana has been going through this phase where she wants her blanky with her and her stuffed doggy. Raychel never went through any phase were she needed/wanted her blanky or stuffed toy, But every little one is different. Its so cute though, she will kiss her little doggy and just cuddle with it, its so sweet.
Oceana has a skin reaction when she gets ranch on her face, It gets all red and blotchy… strange =( ??  O.C. loves chocolate chip cookies, soups, beans, hot dogs, Mexican rice, milk, yogurt, bananas, and grapes.
Little O.C. loves playing with her sister and tries to do and say anything she does/says. Its so precious hearing Oceana try to repeat what Raychel is saying, my heart melts.

Looking out the window, seeing if daddy is almost home.

Oceana calls her balnky “B” because “blanky” is too hard for her to say.

{Daddy… Rambo?}

Ray is a big fan of Sylvester Stallone’s movies (Rocky & Rambo), and a few nights ago it was on TV and when Raychel seen Stallone she said, “there’s Daddy, Daddy that’s you!” hahaha!!
What do you think?
(except the hair, of course!)
