Wednesday Walk

January 13, 2009

This week I will always remember:

That Bella hates getting her pictures professionally done. She cried so much until they put the black background on that was made of cloth and she said "Blankie!" and ran right over to it!

I'll never forget how stressful planning a birthday party is! Bella's is a week from Saturday, and my stress levels are high right now.

A memory from the past:

I think this one I am going to do just for Bella. Hopefully one day she can read this blog and appreciate it!

The day you were born...

It was a cold day in January. I had gone to Dr. Solomon the day before to get checked out because of the amount of pain I was in. He told me I was 2 cm dilated and 50%. He called down to the nurses station and booked me for 7 a.m. Friday morning. The doctor said to eat a big breakfast before coming in.

Friday morning, January 26, 2007... Eric and I wake up around 4:30 a.m. We decided to go to IHOP across the street from Seton NW Hospital. I ate so much food and am glad I did. I was in labor with you for 11 hours. Everyone came, your Grandma & Grandpa, Papa & Mary, Aunt Tanya & Austyn, Auntie Melissa, Aunt Sandra & Uncle Mark, etc.
To say I had a hard pregnancy is an understatement, but the delivery was worse. I had to keep an oxygen mask on the whole time to keep your heartbeat up. I pushed for over an hour and a half, and when you were born, I didn't get to meet you for half an hour. The doctor and nurses thought you had broken your collar bone, so they cleaned you and rushed you to the x-ray. Thank God you were fine, and when they placed you in my arm, I knew what love was. The kind of love where within that first minute of having you, I would have given my life to save yours. The kind of love that make me smile everytime someone says your name. You are the reason I am here and my reason for everything Daddy & I do! We love you Isabella Joanie Munoz!


  1. What a great post. I went to IHOP right before my 2nd son was born. In fact we were scarfing down our food because my contractions were less than five minutes apart!

  2. What a sweet story - and adorable little Bella!

    I gave up on professional pics long ago. They just never seem to go well for me. Good thing there are digital cameras with good editing programs - our home photos can truly be just as good (or almost).

    Thanks for joining in today. It was fun to read your blog.

    Have a blessed and beautiful day.

  3. I hate doing professional pics, so much so that the only one I had done of my 2 year old was when she was a newborn and my older girls just get their school pics. It's so hard to get them to cooperate. My friend is trying her hand at photography and promised me she'd come take pics, so I'm looking forward to that!
    I love that picture of Bella. She's so cute!

    I saw your comment about the Twilight books on my blog. I've only read the first two books so far. My friend got me the first one for Christmas because she insisted that I had to read it! I have the 3rd one, but haven't had a chance to start it yet. I haven't seen the movie, but I would love to. I'll probably get it when it comes out on DVD!

  4. Summer,

    Thanks for your comment about my memory post. I just realized that your name is Summer. My name used to be Summer, until I was adopted and it was changed to Kristin. Did you go to college here in TX? I was just thinking that would be funny if you were the same Summer that my friend lived with at A&M.


I love comments & questions so please leave yours and I'll try to respond quickly!
