TreSoto Update

Well assuming, I don’t go into labor in the next 24 hours, tomorrow morning baby boy is getting evicted! That’s right. We are scheduled for yet again, another induction. So the plan includes dropping the girls off at Mimi & Bapa’s this evening, enjoying a nice, peaceful coffee/dessert date with the hubby, get a good night’s rest try to get a few hours of sleep, wake up at 4am, check in to the hospital at 5am, start some pitocin action around 6am, and from there, I have no expectations other than to get Soren the heck out!

I’ve noticed a significant shift in the bond of these 2 recently. Which means a closeness that includes a lot of whining fighting working things out, but ultimately, lots of hugs, kisses, snuggles, squeals, and belly laughs.


 Here’s to an ordinary, wonderful, warm, glorious, uncomfortable and final day as a mommy of 2 and to a smooth labor & delivery of baby boy Soto!

Barbies and Boyish Blue

Two weekends ago, Bapa came over to paint the nursery a more masculine shade of the rainbow. Although the color we had was gender neutral, after 4 years, momma was getting pretty tired of the bright green. What he didn’t know was that his mission would be slightly delayed by an inability to refuse his… Continue Reading
