This one goes out to the one I love :)...

At only 26, he's a father of 2 and a husband to a high maintenance woman who loves him very much, even when he doesn't want to take a picture ;).

He's not just a father; he's a dad.  The best dad I know, actually.  I feel blessed to say that.  He puts family first and never lets go, even when times get tough.  Literally and figuratively :).  Believe me, Mirabel really wanted to jump in that water.  She even asked us to take off her shirt.  

He's got a good head on his shoulders and he's level-headed.  He may be tough at work, but at home he knows how to have fun with his number one fan and he makes sure to spend time with us, even if that means losing sleep.

That's why he deserves this big piece of pecan pie cake, among many other things. :)

Happy 26th Birthday and Father's Day, Jose :).

Juliette Pearl

We got a great deal on these 3D/4D images!  I only had it done because I received a $50 off coupon in my inbox :), nice surprise.  Jose gave me a wonderful mother's day massage package to this pregnancy spa for Mother's Day, and I loved it, so we decided to go back for a quick ultrasound session.  It was great because Juliette was awake and so animated the entire time.  We got about 60 images, but I think these are my favorite.  She looks so much like her sister, except her lips are a little bigger--she got that from her dad :).  But they have THE SAME nose; I laughed when I saw it.  

We decided on a middle name: Pearl.  There were a few others I really liked, but this was one of the few we could actually agree on.  We decided on one earlier on, but Jose changed his mind.  He wasn't coming up with ideas so I created a list and made him sit down with me and choose one :). It sounds vintage, and that's what I like about it.  It's classic and still fairly uncommon but not weird.  Yes, a bit old lady-ish to some, maybe, but I think that's what I like about it.  It's a lot like the other common old school names, except not quite as common... yet ;).  My mom chose my name when it was uncommon and now there are so many little girls named Sophie/Sophia!  Jose really likes my middle name and wanted to go with it: Francesca, but I decided that I wanted her to have her own name :).

Anyhow, here are the images...
