Burgess Family of three...for now

A look into what we ordinarily do...sometimes not that ordinary.

I am sleep deprived.

Lina started sleeping through the night consistently a few weeks ago. I was thrilled!

All of a sudden this week she is waking up every three hours at night. She eats for just a bit and then goes back to sleep.

Every three hours!! I am dying here! She didn't even do this as a newborn.....and she's 3 1/2 months now for crying out loud!

Any ideas??

Charlie's Here!

Last week Charlie Eve Henriquez was born. She is going to be Lina's BFF, once they meet. We went to see them but Lina wasn't allowed to go into the hospital. Dang flu precautions!

Charlie looks just like Megan, she's got a round little face, blonde hair, and a couple of dimples. She's a strong baby and came out weighing almost 9 lbs. She is so tiny compared to Lina but I have a feeling that if she takes after Jonathan she won't have too hard of a time catching up.

OOHH!! I just love my new little niece! She is so precious, I wish they lived closer so I could smother her with kisses!

Good job guys.....she's perfect!

Spoiled by Grampa Alan

Grampa Alan is wrapped around this little girl's pinkie to say the least. He is her biggest fan, and she knows she gets spoiled when she's with him.

Leave me alone, I'm strolling around with my grandaughter.

Lina, come on. I'll hold you just the way you want and spoil you rotten. Come on.

Now I think I've died and gone to heaven. Beer in one hand, grandbaby in the other, sitting at the beach on a Friday afternoon.

Good Morning. I came to get you bright and early. No sense in putting off the spoiling.

You can say no to her. It won't hurt my feelings.

Rocky Point Family Reunion

Us plus family equals a good time, throw into that formula a lot of crazy mexican cousins, the beach, and three days in Mexico.......now that equals a whole new level of FUN!!

Here are the family pics with everyone in their bright purple matching shirts!

My friend who has a blog but doesn't blog...

I have this friend, Jackwa Kneel (name has been changed to protect her identity) who has a blog that she promises she is going to update pretty much every time I talk to her.......but never does! There was a time in our friendship when I actually believed her so I would obsessively check her blog but to much dissapointment it was always the same posting (which is almost a year old now).

I've decided to blog for her. Since I don't have her password and hacking is not one of my strengths this will just have to do. =)
Plus, I know that she will find this freaking hilarious so maybe that will just do the trick to get her back in the blogging world!

Hi Everyone! I know, it's been forever! I have been such a bad blogger and I am really trying to be better. Here is a very valiant effort to getting everyone caught up on whats been going on in my life....

1. Houston (city has been changed to protect her identity) has been a blast! I totally miss all my friends in AZ seriously ALLLL the time and don't know how I manage with out them.

2. Dave (name has been changed to protect identity) has been doing so well in his classes. He is pretty much the smartest kid and aces all his tests. He is at the top of his class so I am really proud of him. He works hard and it is really paying off.

3. Sadie (name has been changed) is loving it out here too. We've discovered that she doesn't like it when we pull on her ears and she'll even kinda snip at us when we do it.

I've been subbing so that's been taking up my time. I've tried out different grade levels and subjects. I even took the liberty to teach a 5th grade class some Italian!! I am so the best!

There was a Chick-Fil-A that opened up here so I toted myself down there super early in the morning and set up camp for 24 hours and won myself one years worth of Chick-Fil-A!!

I had all this time to kill so I started on some over due crafts.

Here I am boiling in my tent.

Pizza Night,a little different.

Dave and I went to Padre Island. Here's our beautiful view.

I went to AZ to visit a couple of times but I don't have those pics. So much more has happened and I PROMISE I will be better about blogging from now on.

Lastly, here's a pic of my hot friend who is totally awesome and her baby Lina (I'm her zia). We met at Mimi's for breakfast. SO YUMMY!

I miss everyone and I PROMISE I am going to keep up on my blog now! Ciao!!
