Time Flies

I can't believe how old Laura is! She turns 2 in less than 2 months. She is now stringing words together and saying the funniest things. One of my favorite things she does is for words starting with an "s," she switches the "s" sound from the beginning to the end of the word. So Daddy is gone all day at "cools"(school) and she likes to climb in bed with me and "nuggles" (snuggle) and she insists on always eating dinner with Laura's "poos" (spoon). She is also saying prayers now and says the funniest things. Last week her prayer went like this:
Father.
Thanks.
Pee pee.
Poo poos.
Amen.
She has yet to understand why we say prayers- she just thinks it is a good time to throw in some of her favorite words. "Puppy," "purse" and "baby" are other words that are often included in her prayer.
She loves to be outside and now that the weather has been so nice we have been spending lots of time going to parks and on walks. She hates to be in her stroller and insists on walking everywhere. Even in the grocery stores. If I put her in the shopping cart she will scream and yell "hug" which is code for pick me up. As soon as I pick her up she will scream "down" and take off running.


And Laura is not the only one getting bigger everyday. I am now down to 8 more weeks until the due date and am starting to feel quite large.

We have decided on a name for our sweet little girl, Angelica. Laura calls her "Gica" and loves to lift up my shirt and give her kisses and hugs. (She obviously doesn't understand the baby making process since she also tries to do this to Daddy sometimes). As the due date gets closer, it seems like I am so much more emotional about everything. I know that the closer that we get to her birth, the sooner I am going to have to say goodbye to her. I am really enjoying this pregnancy because I feel like I am keeping my fragile baby safe and protected. She is constantly reminding me how well she is doing with kicks and jabs in my stomach! We are just praying that we get to spend a little bit of time with her before Heavenly Father takes her home.

I've been thinking about you guys...wondering how your pregnancy is. I LOVE the name...sooo special! Do you say it latina style? I also had some questions about law school waiting lists. I remember you posting about moving to Virginia...and then the next day moving to Tennessee or something like that. Ernesto is waitlisted for a good school...and I imagine he will be on a few more wait lists. What did you guys do? Did you look for housing or how did that go? Did you guys apply to BYU? It is so cheap compared to the other schools...making it a hard contender...but we are done with Utah at the same time. Fielding...I'm going to Paraguay next month!!! Ahhh...so excited!!! Every night I think about the mission...with converts...companions...areas...and everything about Paraguay. I forget my list of converts...and need some help with names when we were together. What is your email? Mine is leannaescobar@gmail.com. Thanks Fielding! Praying for you and the little one! Remember...you can do hard things and...you are the bomb.com! Love you!

QUE LINDA ESTA CHE I´RU!! SER MAMÁ TE QUEDA MUY BIEN. SEGURAMENTE ANGELICA ES LA BEBE MAS FELIZ Y AGRADECIDA POR ESTAR EN UNA FAMILIA TAN HERMOSA COMO LA QUE VOS Y TU ESPOSO HAN CREADO.
ME ENCANTA EL PELO DE LAURA ES TAN CHULINA!
LA VERDAD QUE SI, EL TIEMPO PASA VOLANDO Y LO MAS IMPORTANTE ES QUE SE VEN MUY FELICES.

You do look amazing! Time does fly, too. I was thinking about how quickly this year is going by and how Tommy is almost 2 and half months already. Laura is adorable. I love it when they start talking. :) I also love the name you chose and hope and pray that you will get to have her around for as long as possible.
