Ruffle Ballet Flats

Today, my husband called me from the studio. He's still recording. And he talked about watching a movie tonight. After the girls went to bed. Sounded good to me. But that meant, I needed some Target popcorn. No other popcorn even comes close to how good Target's popcorn is.

So I loaded up the girls. And we went to Target. You can't go to Target without looking. My basket magically appeared in the shoe department. Where I found these lovely shoes! For only $12.99. And I couldn't resist. I bought them. Along with an outfit for each of our girls. :)

These shoes are so comfy! And they're a taupe color. To me, they can go with just about any outfit! I love them! Being a mom, I need some comfy shoes that I can chase after the girls in. And these are them. Wow! I'm glad we decided to watch a movie tonight. ~A

Play Time

I don't know. Maybe 2 months ago, I was doing some online "Window Shopping." And I was dreaming of buying this for Sophia. I know she would really love it!

Isn't this pink kitchen just what every little girl would love? For just these 3 pieces, we're talking $700!

And this little table and chair set, it's $450! But I can dream right? At least for my little girls.

Well, I wasn't sure why my husband agreed to work this tour. He has more than enough work around here. But I realized why when we got a delivery today! He had seen these 2 things bookmarked on out computer. And he really liked them.

Have I mentioned that my husband made me wait to have kids? He wanted to make sure that we were financially stable, had a home, and all that jazz. Well, we had all that. And we moved. I finally talked him into having a baby. And Sophia, she just melted her daddy's heart!

He bought this entire set. A surprise to all of us. And was I ever surprised! I cried when I realized what he had done. Sacrificed so much, to give out girls some fun stuff to play with. We don't spoil our kids. Not rotten anyway. And we make them respect what they have. But for my husband to do this, it meant a lot to me.

So as I type this, he's playing with Sophia. They're having a tea party. Using her new toys. And our little one, she's having a late snack here. But we're lucky. We have a man that loves the 3 of us so very much! Enough to hit the road, on a tour, to make a few dreams come true. ~A

Sophia's Favorite Book

We've noticed recently, Sophia is really liking her bible. When it's time to read, we let her pick what books she wants to read. In the morning, my husband and her will read a book or 2. And at night, me and her will read before bed.

For about the last 2-3 months, she's been grabbing for her bible. Not for her fairy tales or fun books. She really likes learning about God. That's what she tells us. And at church, she is so into the readings. I'm not sure if that's normal for a 3 year old. But our little girl, she really likes our religion. I'm glad, it's really important to us. ~A

My Little Latina

This is what I woke up to this morning. I thought I was hearing something. No. When I walked downstairs, still half asleep, I heard the music loud and clear. My husband and Sophia were dancing around the kitchen. In their pjs. Making breakfast.

Sophia was cracking up! She was shaking everything that she could figure out how to shake. My baby girl is a real Latina! There were no butt grabs like in the video. But there was definite dancing. My husband was teaching Sophia how to dance to this song. Those Latino hips were really working.

And I just had to sit there and laugh. Laugh hard! When they were done, I asked Sophia what she had been doing, she told me she was dancing with her papi. "Mommy, you know, like Tia Bonita dances." I just had to laugh. I guess these little ones watch their Tia Bonita more than we thought. It's a good thing she is such a good role model. ~A

Singing with Her Papi

My husband, he's been teaching Sophia how to sing since she was born. I'm not lying! They practice all the time. It's really cute to see.

Today, I put our baby girl down for her nap, and I came into the den to find the 2 of them singing. My husband, he was playing the guitar, and Sophia was sitting between him and the guitar. Holding onto his hands. And they were singing this song.

It was the sweetest thing I've ever seen. Sophia was so into her song. Singing with her papi. Watching him play the guitar. Like she was really studying it. My husband is such a great daddy. I just can't wait to see what the future brings to our family. ~A
