First of all there's something you should know about Henry. He is spoiled. He has always had Jairo, myself, my mom, my dad, and my brother at his beck and call. He has been the center of attention his whole life. So naturally I knew he wasn't going to automatically adjust to having to share the attention with his little sister. Well I was right. It has taken him awhile to adjust. Don't get me wrong, he loves his sister and has since she was born. He just doesn't always love sharing the spotlight with her.

There have been several times that he has asked if we can sell his sister. This alarmed me at first but I know he doesn't mean it. He has only said this a couple of times and only when he feels that she is taking attention away from him. Like if he wants me to play with him but I am in the middle of changing the baby's diaper he would say "ugh can we just sell her please?" But later when he realizes that she can be with us while we are playing he kisses her on the head and tells her he loves her.

Much to my delight though, the past couple of weeks he has really grown more fond of her. I think when she was first born she was so fragile and boring that he wasn't really interested in spending time  around her. As a newborn he had to be so careful around her and she either slept, cried, or ate. He would ask me things like "when will she grow up? When can she play with me? Why is she so boring?" But recently Anastazia is more fun for him to be around. She makes eye contact, she smiles, "talks", and loves to watch Henry. She lights up when she hears his voice and loves to watch him run and jump around. Henry feels more comfortable holding her now because she isn't so fragile. He is really starting to enjoy her company now.

Yesterday Henry said to me "can we keep my sister? She's so cute and I love her. I'm sorry I said to sell her. I never want to sell her." I am so excited that he is beginning to bond with her more. I can't wait to watch them grow up together. 
Also I want to give a huge thank you to Lori Romney Photography
She is an amazing photographer. She was so fun to work with and was amazing with my kids. Henry can get pretty wild and Anastazia doesn't like to cooperate. Yet she was able to get so many beautiful pictures of both of them individually and together. Now that is a gift. If you are in Utah I highly suggest you check her out. XO

It's been a little while since I've blogged and I have gained some new followers. So I thought it was appropriate to share some fun facts about myself and Jairo!

1. My eyes are naturally blue
2. I'm 5' 6.5"
3. I love anything vintage
4. My favorite color is black
5. I could live on coke slurpees
6. My favorite holiday is Halloween
7. I'm a junior at the University of Utah
8. My major is psychology
9. I love Disney movies (Alice in Wonderland is my favorite)
10. I have been out of the country 8 times
11. I am on the Dean's List
12. I don't like romantic movies
13. I like shows about space, history, and nature
14. One of my favorite pass times is reading
15. I can say the alphabet backwards
16. I have a terrible singing voice
17. I have always loved horses
18. I am afraid of deep (especially dark) water
19. I've never broken a bone or been stung by a bee
20. I didn't learn how to ride a bike until I was 12

(Is it weird that it took me a really long time to come up with 20 facts about myself?!)

Since Jairo is a pretty quiet guy I think I'll share some fun facts about him as well so you can get to know him a little better.

1. He has 3 brothers and 1 sister
2. His eyes are so brown they look black
3. He recently got into snowboarding and loves it
4. His first language is Spanish
5. His middle name is Johnathan
6. He works at Walgreens
7. He's 22
8. When he was 17 he got his ears pierced (don't tell him I told you)
9. He loves to be outside
10. He loves ketchup
11. He's 5' 9"
12. He loves cars
13. He's really good at drawing
14. He doesn't really like dessert
15. His favorite drink is Coke
16. He loves action movies
17. He always has to be moving (sometimes he even paces when he's talking)
18. He's allergic to milk
19. He's a very hard worker
20. He's a great dad

It's funny because Jairo and I are really total opposites in a lot of aspects. But I think that's what makes us work. I mean they do say "opposites attract" right?
