Eliana’s birthday [08-12-2017]
I just got a short moment to make another “update”. Well, I’m actually here to announce that our oldest daughter will be celebrating her SIXTH birthday next weekend (August 19th), and we’re all super excited! It’s actually kind of funny to realize that I’ve been a mother for six years, and I’ve enjoyed every second, and still do! I don’t really get as heavy hearted as I used to, when I think about her birth, and the loss of her biological father. I could have lost her, too, but she’s here with us, and I can’t describe how thankful I am, and how blessed I feel. She has the sweetest personality, and she is the strongest little girl I know. She doesn’t let anything stop her from reaching her goals, and doing what she loves.
I’m very excited to celebrate my daughter on the 19th, but on a side note; we’ve made a little change to our boys’ hair, and it’s finally easier to tell them apart (well, for you guys, as we never really had a problem with that). Long story short, one of Samuel’s cousins recently got a new hairstyle, and Miguel then decided that he wanted to get his hair cut, too. Tomás didn’t want a haircut, so now the boys have different hairstyles, which is both a little sad, and wonderful. The “sad” part is, that I loved to see them with identical hairstyles. They might be identical twins, but that really doesn’t mean that they have to be identical with everything. I actually like Mik’s new hairstyle, but I’m still getting used to it.
