Helena Mia Ambrocio

Helena was born at 4:40 pm on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at San Antonio Community Hospital in Upland, CA. Labor was induced that morning at 6am after 41 3/7 weeks of pregnancy and went so smoothly that the doctor missed the birth and Helena was delivered by a nurse with only 2 pushes. At 7 lb 10 oz and 20 inches long, she was much smaller than expected.  That was short lived, at two months she now weighs over 12 lbs.

We love her very much and cherish every minute we are blessed to have her in our lives.

I wore make-up this time

Something I have learned...

Nothing brings back the pain of child birth quite like sweaty, bloated hospital pictures. Call it vanity (it is) but, as far as I'm concerned, the better I feel about the pictures, the more likely Helena is to get a sibling. 

Our Wedding

Jorge and I were married Aug 22, 2008 in my parents' backyard here in Claremont. Here are some snap shots from the wedding and the reception held the following evening.

So there Courtney

A long time ago I was the first person in my family to have a blog. It was fun for a while, lots of other people started blogging, I liked deciding which pictures to put up and I tried to be interesting. But then the pressure to post something worth reading became to great and I walked away from my blog.

Well, now with an awesome new family to show off, blogging isn't about me... it is about how cute they are and it doesn't matter if I write something worth reading because everybody loves pictures of babies.
