4 Months
Nathaniel is now four months old.   He found his feet and he sucks on his toes.  He also found his hands and has started to grab things and pull his own hair. That is the exciting stuff around these parts. More later, after my nap.

Two Months
Has it really been a month since my last post?!  Sleeping and eating takes precedence over blog post, sorry followers.  My Nathaniel is now two months old and he started holding a rattle.  He does all these really cute baby things like cooing and smiling.  ...

My Birth Story
I was surprised how many
people asked me about my birth story. 
So, I decided to blog it and maybe Nathaniel Andreas Alaniz will read
about it one day and know that he is loved and wanted in every way. It was 3:45 in the morning
and I woke to a kick and a c...

Christmas 2014
Christmas is a holy and special time for me.   I love what Christmas means and that idea
that this is the day that we celebrate Jesus’s birthday.   Yes, we commercialize and materialize the
