Welcome to the world!!!

Announcing the arrival of Charlotte Marina Crespo!!!!

She was born on Wednesday June 24th 2009 at 8:52 am weighing 7 lbs with length of 19 1/2 inches.

As far as the birth was concerned it was VERY fast. I went in for my appointment the day before and I was 3 cm dilated. Knowing how far we lived and how fast Elizabeth came he had me come in the next day to be induced (he didn't want me to have to give birth in the car on the freeway while on my way to the hospital).
I came in at 6am found out I was a 4-5 then they started the pitocin drip about 7am and I had her less than two hours later. It was so fast that by the time I told Jai to get the nurse and she came in, my water broke, they paged the doctor and less than 5 minutes later the nurse had to deliver her!!! It was really amazing that your body really knows what to do. I think it was less dramatic than Lizzie's birth and just really cool (probably because it didn't take so long to push the second time)

I will post more pictures later. But here is one where you can see her dimples already!! Definitely in a different place than Lizzie's.

Honesty is the best policy

I think every parent finds their children funny.

So the other day in an attempt to be cheap but have a stir-fry experience, Jai experimented with stuff that we had around the house. Needless to say it was disgusting (I sent him out later to get me chips and salsa)

When Jai and I had our fill of dinner, Jai asked Lizzie if she liked it. She finished the noodles in her mouth looked up from her bowl and said with a blank expression "NO" and then bent back down to eat some more noodles even though they were so disgusting to her!

We laughed so hard!!

Serious Pregnancy Brain

So I am the one in charge of paying the bills in our house. I usually know about when each bill is due and when I should probably pay it. Well last month at about the time when both our car insurance bill and phone bill were due I could not find them. I did a quick search of our apartment and my purse and just decided to send the approximate amount with our account number on it in so we wouldn't be late. Well it turns out that when I got the bills for this month I had paid both of them twice!!! I had totally forgotten that I paid them both earlier that month!!! That also explains why we were around $200 off budget for last month. Hopefully I will have the baby soon so that the pregnancy brain will start to go away!!! 11 days and counting (til the due date at least!)

Where do I live again?

I know somethings get me confused really easily, but I could have sworn I lived in Southern California! Now I know that no other state in the nation would have transported my little ghetto neighborhood to their state overnight, so then what is up with all this cool weather and rain? I know I shouldn't be complaining about it because as always we are in a drought and we really do need the rain fall. But it is hard when you finally get yourself and your two year old ready to head out the door only to find that she needs a rain coat, that I should really change her sandals to shoes, and that I really should not be wearing my worn out flip flops in the rain at 9 months pregnant. Well at least I got her rain coat on this morning!
