Dolphin Tale

Image DetailI took my son to go see this wonderful movie two days ago. We cried it was a happy cry I guess. This movie shows that family is really only what you make it. FAMILY IS FOREVER!  There is a scene in the movie where a lady drove eight hours with her daughter to see the Dolphin with no Tale no big deal right until she wheels her out in a wheelchair. That was the start of the water works for me. I won't tell you a lot of the movie you should take your family to watch it.
Image DetailIt will bring you joy in knowing that Hope is all you really need in life. My son told me that he will never give up on his family. I love the fact that he will never give up. It's from all that good parenting skills Steve and I have. We have raised a wonderful little boy together so far. There are many more years to come. Justin will be able to swim with dolphins very soon in the coming months. I can't wait to watch his face light up. I love watching movies with him but he is a talker. Mom watch this or the part where winter might not make it. He was really upset telling the people in the movie they can't do that. Then asking me "Can they do that mom and why would they?"
Image DetailThis is a all around family movie to see together. I'm not a big fan of watching movies in 3D. I hate the glasses they give you. Next time I'm bringing a bottle of water with me instead of paying $3.50 for a $1.00 bottle of water. Insane I will add not that I care but prices lately are getting out of hand. It's inspiring to see how so little can make a little boy happy. I know many children only have one parent due to many circumstances. I will applauded the aunts,cousins and family friends who stand up to help out. Children need to know they are loved.

Abortion/A woman's right

Hi Mommy,

I'm your baby. You don't know me yet, I'm only a few weeks old. You're going to find out about me soon, though. I promise. Let me tell you some things about me. My name is John, and I've got beautiful brown eyes & black hair. Well, I don't have it yet, but I will when I'm born. I'm going to be your only child, and you will call me your one & only. I'm going to grow up without a daddy m...ostly, but we have each other. We will help each other, & love each other. I want to be a doctor when I grow up.

You found out about me today, Mommy! You were so excited, you couldn't wait to tell everyone. All you could do all day was smile, & life was perfect. You have a beautiful smile, Mommy. It will be the first face I will see in my life, & it will be the best thing I will see in my life. I know it already. Today was the day you told Daddy. You were so excited to tell him about me! He wasn't happy, Mommy. He kind of got angry. I don't think that you noticed, but he did. He started to talk about something called wedlock, & money, bills & stuff. I don't think I understand yet. You were still happy, though. So it was okay. Then he did something scary, Mommy. He hit you. I could feel you fall backward, & your hands flying up to protect me. I was okay... but I was very sad for you. You were crying then, Mommy. That's a sound I don't like. It doesn't make me feel good. It made me cry, too. He said sorry after, & he hugged you again. You forgave him Mommy, but I'm not sure if I do. It wasn't right. You say he loves you... why would he hurt you? I don't like it, Mommy.

Finally, you can see me! Your stomach is a little bit bigger, & you're so proud of me! You went out with your mommy to buy new clothes, and you were so so so happy. You sing to me, too. You have the most beautiful voice in the whole wide world. When you sing is when I'm happiest. You talk to me, & I feel safe. So safe. You just wait & see, Mommy. When I am born I will be perfect just for you. I will make you proud, and I will love you with all of my heart.

I can move my hands & feet now, Mommy. I do it because you put your hands on your belly to feel me, and I giggle. You giggle, too. I love you, Mommy.

Daddy came to see you today, Mommy. I got really scared. He was acting funny & he wasn't talking right. He said he didn't want you. I don't know why, but that's what he said. He hit you again. I got angry, Mommy. When I grow up I promise I won't let you get hurt! I promise to protect you. Daddy is bad. I don't care if you think that he is a good person, I think he's bad. But he hit you, and he said he didn't want us. He doesn't like me. Why doesn't he like me, Mommy?

You didn't talk to me tonight, Mommy. Is everything okay?

It's been three days since you saw Daddy. You haven't talked to me or touched me or anything since that. Don't you still love me, Mommy? I still love you. I think you feel sad. The only time I feel you is when you sleep. You sleep funny, kind of curled up on your side. You hug me with your arms, & I feel safe & warm again. Why don't you do that when you're awake, any more?

I'm 21 weeks old today, Mommy. Aren't you proud of me? We're going somewhere today, and it's somewhere new. I'm excited. It looks like a hospital, too. I want to be a doctor when I grow up, Mommy. Did I tell you that? I hope you're as excited as I am. I can't wait.

Mommy, I'm getting scared. Your heart is still beating, but I don't know what you are thinking. The doctor is talking to you. I think something's going to happen soon. I'm really, really, really scared, Mommy. Please tell me you love me. Then I will feel safe again. I love you!

Mommy, what are they doing to me!? It hurts! Please make them stop! It feels bad! Please, Mommy, please, please help me! Make them stop!

Don't worry Mommy, I'm safe. I'm in heaven with the angels now. They told me what you did, & they said it's called an abortion.
Why, Mommy? Why did you do it? Don't you love me any more? Why did you get rid of me? I'm really, really, really sorry if I did something wrong, Mommy. I love you, Mommy! I love you with all of my heart. Why don't you love me? What did I do to deserve what they did to me? I want to live, Mommy! Please! It really, really hurts to see you not care about me, & not talk to me. Didn't I love you enough? Please say you will keep me, Mommy! I want to live smile & watch the clouds & see your face & grow up & be a doctor. I don't want to be here, I want you to love me again! I'm really, really, really sorry if I did something wrong. I love you!
I love you, Mommy.
Every abortion is just
One more heart that was stopped.
Two more eyes that will never see.
Two more hands that will never touch.
Two more legs that will never run.
One more mouth that will never speak.

I came across this yesterday first I would like to say this is a very sad letter.  I'm not for or against abortion. I say this because I believe in a woman's right to chose if she wants to have a baby or not. It's her body she goes though all the changes for nine months. She has to deal with the mental issues there may be in whatever her case is. I'm not saying this should be a form of birth control no never. There should be a limit to one abortion in the extreme case of rape, incest or if someway she can't carry it due to her health. I know pro-life people would think otherwise. I hate to bust their bubble all women can't deal with those issues with help or without it. Yes, the woman could give the baby up to a couple who wants a baby. Yes, I agree to that also but if you were to put yourself in another woman's shoes you may not be able to stay pro-life. The pain of going though a rape is very unbearable for some then having to make a choice about the life that is growing inside of you. I know what I went though being pregnant I know all my thoughts that ran though my head. I'm thankful that the father of my two boys was able to step up and be a man. I had a very good support system from him who later asked for my hand in marriage. Being married for seven years to the father of my children has been the best decision I have ever made. I'm sad to say a lot of women don’t have the man to help nor the support system they need from family and friends. You don't need a man to raise a child I know plenty of single mothers who have done a great job with their children. It all comes down to the woman to be strong and independent.  As for the letter above Domestic Violence is something most people don't understand. This letter could have been a story on the news of the father killing the baby and mother. In fact I am friends with a lady who was abusive by her husband for many years. The day that was suppose to be a happy day to bring a child in the world turned out to be her worst nightmare. He didn't let her go to the hospital right away he decide to bet her up. She got sick while she was in labor. As she was hanging over the toilet her husband was kicking her in the belly and tried to drown her in the toilet. When he allowed her to go to the hospital between the nurses coming in and out he was punching her in the belly and chest. His excuse was that he didn't want another man looking at her private parts. I asked her why she didn't say something to the doctor while she was there. Turned out the husband never left her side she never got the chance to. I think child abuse cases have a lot to due to the fact that a lot of women where not able to get an abortion. If you were a victim of incest or rape can you imagine all the hate that can build up inside a person only to have them let it out on those poor innocent children? I think pro-life people need to back off and let the person chose the woman. I give credit to the women who can overcome what happen to them to be able to raise a happy child. Sadly there is not that many around. Abortion should be handle case by case. Yes, it is very sad to end a life GOD gave you but in some cases what do you think is the best for the lady above and my friend. Keep in mind a little pink piece of paper doesn't do much for a woman who is running for her life. In most cases if it goes to court the father gets the kids while the judge sits up on chair and says JUST BECAUSE HE IS MEAN TO YOU DOESN'T MEAN HE WILL BE MEAN TO THE CHILDREN. They are always wrong!!!! A man that hits never changes never cares about what he has done. Let's not forget the pregnant women murder. Their last breath is taken by a boyfriend or husband look it up.

Picture of the year

A picture began circulating in November. It should be "The Picture of the Year,"... or perhaps, "Picture of the Decade." It won't be. In fact, unless you obtained a copy of the U.S. paper which published it, you probably would never have seen it.

The picture is that of a 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, who is being operated on by surgeon named Joseph Bruner. The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would not survive if removed from his mother's womb. Little Samuel's mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta. She knew of Dr. Bruner's remarkable surgical procedure. Practicing at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb.

During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a small incision to operate on the baby. As Dr. Bruner completed the surgery on Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon's finger. Dr. Bruner was reported as saying that when his finger was grasped, it was the most emotional moment of his life, and that for an instant during the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile.

The photograph captures this amazing event with perfect clarity. The editors titled the picture, "Hand of Hope." The text explaining the picture begins, "The tiny hand of 21-week-old fetus Samuel Alexander Armas emerges from the mother's uterus to grasp the finger of Dr. Joseph Bruner as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life."

Little Samuel's mother said they "wept for days" when they saw the picture. She said, "The photo reminds us pregnancy isn't about disability or an illness, it's about a little person" Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100 percent successful. Now see the actual picture, and it is awesome...incredible....and hey, pass it on! The world needs to see this one!
I open my Fb page today to find this on my wall. I think this picture is amazing to see. It's the baby way of saying thank's doc for helping me.

The Lion King - Hula

What a classic movie from my childhood. I took Justin to the movies this past weekend while my hubby stayed home with the baby. He won't sit for long. I love how they released this movie in theaters. I hope they do it for more Disney movies. I don't mind paying ten dollars a ticket to take my son to see a movie from my childhood. It was packed from front to back. Thanks to my little sis I know this movie by heart. I can't believe I never caught what Timon said until now. Wow, the stuff they put in kids movies. I guess it's not bad considering what spongebob does which I'm happy to say Justin has been spongebob free for a week.

This is one of my favorites parts in the movie. Justins loves it too. We joked about it on the way home. I even laugh harder when he tried to tell his daddy about the part he liked. It worked out that my hubby knew what he was talking about. Jay liked to watch this when he was little. It was a flip between this and nemo. Another all time favorite we seen for the first time as a family. The only part that I hate in this movie is where Mufasa dies. I cry every time Justin gave me a big hug in the theater after it happen. I guess it's Disney way of showing children death because in every movie someone dies. I love how this movie shows a father and son relationship a healthy one at that. If you haven't seen this movie you should go see it. Justin has been bugging me to take him to see that new movie Dolphin Tale. He is the biggest animal lover I know. He wants to go see some dolphins and swim with them. I think his daddy and I might be able to make that happen sooner then what we thought with some big decisions coming up. I just hope we are around for the holidays. Justin will love it. I can't wait to take him to this movie tonight.

He will be one next month I can't believe this time last year I was counting down the days before he appeared on the 13th. I remember it like it was yesterday. Steve really came though for me making all the important calls to our family. He took pictures like a crazy man. I still remember the permanent smile my little man and Steve had on their face when they saw Christopher. Mommy,Daddy and big brother Justin love you very much Popsicle.

Our trip to New york and New Jersey

    New Jersey Fireworks
We are planning our next trip to Florida. I was looking back at our last trip out of town. Here are the fireworks from NJ. They were great I can't wait to travel there again. Justin gets a kick out of it. I'm glad we are able to do things like this with our children.
The fine lady herself.
Downtown Jay with Spongebob.

This is at the American Museum of Natural History which took us five hours to get though and still had half of the first floor to finish. We would have finished it if they weren't closing early for the 4th of July. We paid  $25 for all of us to get in. They base it off donations. I thought that was pretty neat it happen to be the cheapest thing we did the whole trip.

Waiting for the train Justin and I played lets count how many rats we can see. It was really gross those rats were the size of a small cat.

The m&m store which was my favorite. Look at all those !

Things you must know before you go to New York
1. If you have small kids make them walk or get a baby sling for them. It's not a stroller friendly place.
2. Watch out for cabs they will run you over.
3.The cost for food is double what it is here so take extra.
4. Pay for your hotel before hand. We did which was less stress on us.
5. Plan out what you want to do. There are many things to do as we found out.
6. Take the subway don't walk five mile from Battery park. Like we did your legs and butt cheeks will hurt.
7. You will wait in line for everything so bring a book to read.
8. If you drive you can get there by walking a lot faster then sitting in traffic.
9. Have fun don't get sucked into the fast lane when you are there.
10. It stinks in New York. Trash is always on the side of the streets. Curb your dog. Don't wear heels.

WarriorMy wonderful hubby was able to get a babysitter last night to take his lovely beautiful wife me to the movies. We went and seen the movie Warrior. I seen previews for this and Martial Arts has been consent in my life since I was younger. They touch on a very touchy subject that has shaped who I am today.  This is a very hard movie to watch. I think it will do very well in the box office. It really shows that Life is really only what you make it no matter how you grew up or what you went though in your past. You can dwell on your past and never let go. On the other hand you can just let it be. You will never forget and in most cases never forgive but let it go. When you chose that then you can really be at peace with yourself.There comes a time and place where you chose the path your life will take. Family is not just defined by blood but who stands by you. Family is only what you make it.  I cried and laugh though this whole movie. I can say both of us tear up many times through this two hour movie. Our past was not an easy one to live though yet we understand it. We made a choice to move on with the people who really care about us people who make us happy. This movie makes you take a step back to look at your life. I did taking a second to talk about it afterwards with my hubby.  We share the same views on how we took a stand to make our life better for us. We left people behind who really meant nothing to us when we thought about it. I’m grateful we meet I think we meet at a time in out lives when we needed a friend more than anything.  Lucky for us we fell in love and the rest is history. If you haven’t seen this movie you should. I think many will love it. This movie shows heart.

On another note for today my heart is with everyone who lost loved ones today. To that girl I will never know from high school. I hope you are okay today. I explain to my eight year old why today was a special day. I had to explain this is why Daddy went to war. My heart goes out to everyone who lost loved ones on this day America will never forget.

9/11 at 8:46 We Pause to Remember

We will always remember today. I was in school when this happen. It changed my life along with millions of Americans all over.

This picture I took off the Internet.

This picture I was looking at thinking there was something missing.  I took this picture on our family trip to New York back in July. We took Justin for his 8th Birthday present. We were in New Jersey waiting for the fireworks to begin. New York is amazing place to go. I hope to go back in a year or two to see the 9/11 memorial. It breaks my heart thinking about this day. I can't seem to get that girl from high school I ran into out of my head. Sadly she lost her parents on that day.

This is another picture of the city as the sun was going down.

Some facts about the Twin Towers

1. The idea for a World Trade Center in New York dates back to 1946, but for various reasons, political and otherwise, active planning didn't begin until the 1960s. By 1967, the Port Authority (responsible for building the towers) had awarded $74 million in steel contracts, and construction was soon underway. Photo: Archive Photos/Getty Images

2. The topping-out ceremonies for the North and South towers took place, respectively, in 1970 and 1971. By the time the towers were completed, total construction costs for the project had ballooned to $900 million. Photo: Henry Groskinsky/Time & Life Pictures/Getty Images

Domestic violence

This is not funny and it's not a joke. I can't believe they seem to think so.Many women and men go though this rich, poor,black,and white. Not enough is done to keep this from happening today. The laws need to change.
